Back to basics
Car phones. Remember those? Back in the day I spent much of my time in the car, back and forth supporting customers. The arrival of the telephone in the vehicle was good for business.

Gavin and I caught up after a few years being busy when he asked me: “Are you still networking?” I confirmed I was and that I was enjoying it, before he answered ‘why?’ … How about you, Gavin, how’s business?

Go tell …
During the course of these past ten years, I am constantly reminding myself that I could be better. I’m happy ‘where I am’ with the business, sure, although these days I’m driven to consider how I could improve. Business is good. Recommendations are coming my way and while I’ve never been one to rest on myContinue reading “Go tell …”
