Accountability is such an important quality. There’s not a lot to maintain, we start by respecting the value of time while doing as we say we shall. I help clients write the story of their lives. Sometimes the project lasts only a short time, other works take a little longer. The business network forum IContinue reading “Accountable”

The world keeps turning
Who do we believe? We’re delivered ‘news’ daily – hourly – or by the minute(!) if, like the majority, we’re ‘geared up.’ Fake news or otherwise – who do we trust? Nothing is certain unless it’s personal, or seen. Is it me, or does it seem that as business owners we’ve been navigating these pastContinue reading “The world keeps turning”
What’s your experience?
There was a time of course when I wasn’t considered an ‘expert’ in anything – least of all publishing. Sure, today the thirty+ years in the industry offer a kind of qualification, reassurance to potential clients. Although I’d never agree to be deemed an expert. Why?

I called out. Andrew offered a smile and an outstretched hand as I approached. “Well, that’sContinue reading “Closer to home”
Cricket, Rugby & networking
I was enjoying a conversation with Sam. He’s excited by the prospects of winning new business through his new-discovered network. I want to be an achiever Charlie. If we’re achieving through sales then we’re contributing to the success of the business, right? Admirable Sam, but to achieve, we first need to understand the process. A tenuous exampleContinue reading “Cricket, Rugby & networking”
