Drive To Survive

Formula One is a sport where only the very best succeed.   Okay, that’s true of pretty much any sport…   But there are only 20 seats at the top table of motor racing, which makes for some of the most competitive and enthralling sporting stories.   And thanks to Netflix’s Drive to Survive documentary […]

I Best Not Forget…

There’s a lot going on in February.   But there’s one date you absolutely MUST NOT forget – because it’s not long until Pancake Day.   Whether you’re a sweet or savoury person, a Nutella or sugar and lemon kinda person, or an American bacon and maple syrup fan, nothing beats Pancake Day.   I […]

Helicopters, Supermarket Sweeps, And Harry Redknapp

There are a lot of days in the year that are great… but none of them hit the mark quite like Transfer Deadline Day.    For all the glitz and glamour of the NFL’s Draft Day or a press conference the day before a big heavyweight boxing clash, the sheer chaos of football’s Transfer Deadline […]

New Year, New Me?

Happy New Year!   I hope you had a wonderful Christmas & festive period with your family, friends, and loved ones.   Now, the first few days back after the festive break always remind me of those things I promised myself I’d do ‘in the New Year’…   And now I’m faced with those tasks […]

Time makes fools of us all

My daughter turned 20 on the weekend. 20 years old. It feels a bit weird, to be honest. She’s just moved to Brighton with her boyfriend and a mate and she’s happily setting up her life, without my help. And as weird as it is – that’s okay. Because I realised that she’s able to […]

Where Does The Time Go?

It’s hard to believe we’re heading into the last couple of months of 2022 already.   It feels like it was summer, then I blinked and now it’s Halloween.   The less said about the presence of Christmas adverts on TV, mince pies in supermarkets, and Christmas trees in pubs, the better.   But any […]

I’ll Take The High Road, And You Take The Low…

As I write this, I’m in Scotland as I head further north. We’re somewhere in the highlands and the landscape is mountainous, green, and about as picturesque as you’re likely to find on these shores. As we travelled north, the landscape started to open up ahead of us. The road winded around the mountains, we […]

How can I manage my business’ finance?

Here’s a quick question for you.   Do you know your numbers? For example, do you know how many leads you need to reach your targets each month? If you don’t – you need to.   Because the problem is: if you’ve got money in your business bank account (or if you’re a sole trader […]

How can I manage my time effectively?

This month, as you know, we’re focussing on time management. Because heading into 2021, I guarantee that nailing this will play a key role in your success – especially if you’re a business who’s had to put many of the usual daily routines and focus on hold while we’re in the current (hopefully final!) lockdown.

Helicopters, heights and conquering fears

There are few things in life that I’m scared of, in a phobia sort of way. I understand you can’t “sort of” have a phobia but you get the drift.   I don’t like slug type things, but I’ll squish them if needed. I’m not a fan of ladders but that’s more related to a […]
