Ben Hollingworth About Me Image

Hi, I’m Ben Hollingworth.

I started Myriad Supplies with the love of pets in mind. Here you can find out all about me, what I do, what I am doing to earn your trust and why I do it.

About Me


Ben Hollingworth

As you may have gathered, my name is Ben. My job is a normal job and I have normal bills and commitments. I could be that person you passed on the street or the person in front of you at the till in the supermarket. I drive a 06 plate car and do the school run daily. In other words, at the end of the day, I’m just a regular guy trying to provide better for his family. That is the reason for me trying to earn your trust. I’m not in for a quick buck. Customers know when you are being dishonest and I want you to be happy enough to return in the future knowing you received good services and items that are fairly priced from an honest man trying to do better by his family.

What I do.

Myriad Supplies began as just a side project but has quickly steamrolled into something I’ve become very passionate about. We all love treating our pets to new toys or treats. We are no different in our household. What I want to do is supply people with the treats and toys and to know pets are being taken care of. 

What am I doing to earn your trust?

I understand visiting an unknown website from an unknown brand or person is a little daunting. How do you know they can be trusted? Similarly, I’m exactly the same, which is why I’ve put measures in place to ensure I earn your trust.

Website Data Security

Starting with the URL. You will see it starts “https”. That means there’s a secure connection between your browser and the website server and submitting sensitive information is encrypted. When I decided to make a website this had to be on the list of must-haves! You can read more about it here. This is an external link to a website that manages SSL certificates. This isn’t any recommendations and mine doesn’t come from there although it is a well-known and trusted company. The write-up is very good at explaining SSL.

Payment Security

The payment methods I have chosen are trusted brands that are easy to use. Everybody knows PayPal. I think it is one of the most used payment systems on the internet. Everybody is safe with PayPal.

Likewise, Stripe is also a known brand in America and is very usable in the UK, although not as well-known. Stripe also provides the ability to checkout with Google checkout and Apple Pay. You will find the Google and Apple checkout locations in a few places. You can read more about the payment methods here.

I am open to adding different methods if they are safe and secure and I can implement it. Just drop me a message and we will see what we can do.

Finally, contact

I’m very open to being contacted and have supplied as many contact methods as I feel validate me as being an approachable honest person.

Why I Do This?

Ben Hollingworth and his daughter

I have worked in retail for over 12 years and in that time I’ve met a lot of people. One thing I’ve learned is that everybody is different. Everybody has different requirements or expectations, they have different attitudes or methods to their madness, so I know how to deal with any situation I’m put into.

My current job is working in a cinema, and one of the main problems I’ve had in recent years is family time. Between me and my partner we work opposite shifts and now we have a little girl. I mainly work evenings and weekends which takes a lot of time out of seeing my family. Becoming self-employed has enabled me to spend more time with them while still working on something I’m very enthusiastic about.

Animals have always been a big part of my life. I can’t think of a time where I haven’t had some form of pet in my life. Our current household consists of a corn snake, tropical fish, and a rabbit, but over the years I’ve had dogs, cats, mice, rats, a hamster and even stick insects to name a few. They each bring with them their own challenges and requirement which need catering for, comparable to people I suppose. My real passion of the animal kingdom is Invertebrates (spiders, praying mantis, millipedes etc.) but my partner isn’t too keen on those, as most seem to be.
