I’m normally disciplined […]

You and Brian…

The 151st Open Championship at Hoylake, Liverpool was won by an unassuming chap called Brian Harman. Not a Rory, Rahm, Justin, or Cameron in sight.  In fact, Brian was so far out of sight he won by a whopping 7 shots, only the 3rd American in four decades to do this.   It’s the equivalent of […]

What do you get paid for?

It’s a great question to take into the weekend but I won’t leave you hanging for the answer… A – “Your ability to act”. This past week I’ve had no less than three separate conversations around people’s inability to simply get things done. Your ability to make things happen, to convert your dreams, aspirations and […]

A Brief Moment Of Reflection

There are few things I enjoy more than having my breakfast and morning coffee outside on a bright morning.      It helps that I live on an orchard and I’m lucky to be out in the peace and quiet of nature…    But that moment of quiet reflection is always welcome when so much of […]

Football Can Teach Us A LOT About Business…

If you didn’t already know, I’m a big QPR supporter.    I’ve seen incredible highs and incredible lows in recent years and any football fan will appreciate that the highs never seem to last long enough, and the lows always seem to drag on forever…    And for QPR, we’re now onto Act III of […]

Just Another Blue Monday

There has been a lot of talk about Blue Monday.    Now, I’ve always been quite open about mental health as a person and a business owner – partly because they’re the same person.    I’m just Ash.    Ash that runs a business and Ash the person who struggles sometimes.    Running a business […]

So, This Is Christmas…

We’re on the home straight now…   The schools have finished, everyone’s winding down at work, and the last-minute shopping is about to commence.   Yep, it’s almost Christmas!   And after a long year full of challenges, successes, and everything that comes with it, I think we’re all just about ready for a break.
