no giving up

When did you last give up? The last time I felt like just walking away, leaving, giving up wasn’t the last at all.  I wouldn’t be human (ok, for clarification on this point, speak with Mrs K.,) I would not be human if I felt that my job, my efforts of encouragement at times fellContinue reading “no giving up”

The opportunity, through trust

Yes, it’s tough ‘out there’ although if you have confidence in your business model, persistence and trust (there’s that word again!) in what you have to offer … if you know where to pitch the business, you have a reasonably ‘thick skin’ and plenty of patience, phew!, then you are half-way there! Clarity. We alreadyContinue reading “The opportunity, through trust”

Let’s go and see … Thursday morn’.

What’s it going to take, to move on? Clarity? Always useful. Budgets? Not essential. How about a road map, some direction?

WhereContinue reading “Let’s go and see … Thursday morn’.”

This time tomorrow

A little while ago I picked up a manuscript offered by a friend.  ‘Read it for me?’ Reg had asked. It wasn’t a vast tome, some 120 pages of handwritten foolscap (in pencil) and I thought (as I weighed up the copy) that if the story was interesting enough, I would likely spend an afternoon deliberating theContinue reading “This time tomorrow”

Get out of your way

Change often brings with it a sense of vulnerability, when we tend to be spending more time thinking of our own predicament, the lack of plenty that pervades and how we might be able to replace this void, provide more. In reality, challenges that we see now should not be seen as a time ofContinue reading “Get out of your way”

Now is the time

Working for yourself can be challenging, especially during a pandemic that threatens to ruin most of the prospective business you’ve been cultivating during the past few months. It’s definitely a challenge and for those in a position to do so, it can be the signal to close down the business completely, cease trading, shut upContinue reading “Now is the time”

A bit of a ‘tidy-up’

I’ve always found the month of January offers some great additional time, time for me to have a bit of a ‘tidy-up.’ From my desktop I look and consider the unsubscribe, the maintenance contracts/insurances, my own business offer plus of course the way forward in pursuit of our goals. The additional free time offers that greatestContinue reading “A bit of a ‘tidy-up’”

What’s on your mind?

I love what I do, my job. I enjoy helping friends move ahead in business through the fraternity. People like to do business with real people. It’s also one of the reasons why I’m enjoying the publishing industry a whole lot more these days. People are making themselves a much more accessible. Real people. It’sContinue reading “What’s on your mind?”
