You and the Spice Girls!

Is it just me or is the line between work and play becoming more blurred the deeper we go into lockdown? There seems to be a general sense of all work and no play making everyone a dull boy or girl. There’s an irony in finding motivation to stop working as opposed to the lethargy that usually accompanies […]

Oh… Jimmy, Jimmy!

I’ve just finished watching the end of the remarkable first test between India and England, and there was a subtle little stat hidden away amongst all the figures that caught my eye. It’s one of the things I love about cricket, the numbers, the stats, the ebb, and flow of what those numbers tell you, […]

A Day of Inspiration, Challenge and Momentum

This week’s blog has been guest written by Martin Gladdish of The Business Ghost  and gives his take on our event in December.   One thing I learned long ago in my self-employed, one-man-band, solo-entrepreneur career is that going it alone is tough. Later, it became abundantly clear to me that ‘tough’ was an understatement […]

How to Manage Your Time Better

Let’s face it: when you start a business, you feel almost like you’ve got to be a superhero. You have so many hats to wear, so many tasks to juggle, and it’s a struggle to manage your time well. But the better you can manage your time, the more productive you can be and the […]

The Power Is In You: Leading as an Introvert

Anyone who wants to run a business has got to be an extrovert, right? They’re natural born leaders. Outgoing. Talkative. Sociable. Not afraid to be the centre of attention. At least, that’s what a lot of people think and is what they expect of an entrepreneur. Introverts, however, are a different personality type completely. Quiet. […]

It’s Not the Flow, But You’ve Got to Go With It

A business isn’t something you can just wing. It takes careful planning to succeed. Yet despite your very best efforts, business and life will throw curveballs at you. They’ll throw you off course and try to pull you down. You’ve got to roll with these punches, adapt and mobilise because it’s how you react to […]

Rise Above: Turning Weaknesses Into Strengths

You’re a leader. You’re human. You try to be the best you can be, but, like everyone else, you have your failings. That’s just the way it is. It’s not, however, the way it’s got to be. Not by a long shot. A good leader (that’s you) will acknowledge their weaknesses and rise above them. […]

Things Happen, But We Need to Deal With Them

Name me someone who’s never felt frustrated. You can’t. It’s impossible. We all get frustrated at some point, either in business or in life. A payment doesn’t come in on time. A service provider lets you down. A washing machine goes on the blink. A flight is delayed. Things like this happen all the time […]

How can I get the most out of my work day?

Do you know something I can’t stand in business? It’s the concept of ‘busy’. People say it and, in the process, convey the impression they’re successful, they’re effective. They might be successful, yes, but if I ask them what they’re working on and they can’t tell me exactly what they’ve been doing — or what […]

It’s All in the Asking

When a problem arises in business, we dive in and scramble around, looking for a solution. We ask what the problem is; we identify it; we find a solution; we implement it. That’s how it works. At least, that’s how it should work, but you see, business isn’t always straightforward. Sometimes, a solution that should […]
