Good Performances Bring Results

It’s never been easy being a QPR fan. I’ve seen it all.  Since 2000 I’ve experienced three promotions, three relegations, two play-off finals, an injury time winner at Wembley, 15 managers and 5 owners (I think!). A rollercoaster of emotions and frustrations interspersed with moments of joy. Ask any QPR fan and one of the […]

Frozen in Time

My sister would have celebrated her 50th birthday today.   I say celebrated ‘today’ but she would have found a way to make it last at least a week.  Seema had an incredibly ability to enjoy life to the full and infecting others around her with that vitality and spark.   She made everyone smile.

The Secret to My Success

I suffer with an ongoing back condition.  Years of abuse and misuse have caused various weaknesses and discs that are degenerating. A back spasm is agonising.   It can leave me on the floor gasping in pain.  And after 30 years of hurt (not quite England football hurt) you’d think I’d be used to it by now. No. Before […]

Flying High!

As we step back into building our businesses over the next few weeks and months, I thought I’d share a conversation I had with a client just before Christmas. He was reflecting on the progress he and his business had made over the past 12 months and we got to talking about flying.   He’s […]

When was the last time you actually thought about how to drive?

[…]

Three times in the last several weeks I’ve delivered an almost identical talk to business owners at networking events local to me.   They’re all ambitious, keen to learn and open to new ideas – like you.   The simple presentation covered three ways to leverage more profit in their business that they could implement […]

Procrastination leads to… more procrastination!

Next week our social feeds will be full of new school photos and doorstep selfies. As exciting as it is, children all over the country will also be dealing with something none of us are huge fans of. Change. Change is uncomfortable. Change means uncertainty, unknown and danger. Even in our safe modern world, that’s […]

I don’t have the time

I love the August Bank Holiday weekend. Not because it’s guaranteed to rain or because it’s an extra day off (I can take those whenever I want). Because it’s the time of year Kay and I plan the next year. It might seem crazy thinking about 2024 whilst we’re still in August but I’ve always […]

I’m looking for Joanne…

This morning, a random parcel turned up, delivered by our DPD driver Osman. Osman is cool, he knows to try the doorbell and if we don’t answer he leaves parcels in the porch. Lovely. Today was a rare occasion where we answered the door and we were handed the package. Rarely a day goes by […]
