I’m regularly asked why I continue to visit my network, meet with friends and their colleagues when I have stated on numerous occasions that I’m not looking to attract ‘just any, or all, kind of business.’ Not for me the ‘stacking them high to sell ’em cheap‘ kind of working.

So, who do we listen to?I find it helps to stay mindful, understanding that ‘news’ is designed to sell. No-one wants to hear what a fantastic holiday you’ve had, although if theContinue reading “set up the win”
Early in my career Terry and I shared a carpool.
