The boss who only hires the disadvantaged or homeless

People participate in a protest march for survivors of sexual assault and their supporters on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California U.S. November 12, 2017.

Drew Goodall today may be a successful CEO of shoe-shinning company but no long ago he was living rough on the streets of London.

Drew was an aspiring actor appearing in films alongside Brad Pitt and Hugh Grant but a bad review destroyed his confidence and he ended up homeless.

A chance meeting with a stranger gave him the idea of starting Sunshine Shoeshine hiring homeless people, including some with special needs, to help them back into work.
