Getting What You Are Worth

I love training. There’s something about going to the gym regularly, that energises me and makes me feel good about myself. When I’m training, it does a lot to help manage my low moods. It changes the whole way I approach my lifestyles, such as eating and drinking. It’s good for me. Except that for […]

Are You Really Being a Business Owner?

You’re probably looking at this title and thinking ‘What a dumb question! I started the business, so I can’t see how I wouldn’t be the owner, so yeah, I’m really being the owner.’ I’m not trying to confuse you here. This isn’t a trick question. I’m asking because I believe there’s a distinction between being […]

Slow Progress Is Still Progress

Overnight success? For me, there’s no such thing. We might see and hear stories of online entrepreneurs who have built mind-blowingly successful businesses in very short spaces of time, but I’m not a fan of this kind of approach. How fantastic it would be to start a business one day and wake up with a […]

Looking Back on Your Hidden Success

We’re at that time of the year when many people are starting to reflect over the last twelve months and consider their accomplishments or successes.  Given that it’s also the end of a decade, this has started a trend towards sharing accomplishments over the past 10 years.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen […]

How long does it take for a business to be successful?

A lot of planning and preparation goes into launching a new product or service and, of course, a business. You want to be successful. I get that. You want everything to be the very best it can be. I get that, too. There comes a point, however, when you’ve got to stop seeking perfection and […]

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. […]

Dog Walks And Planning Thoughts

We’ve been seeing much more of our dog recently.   I say our dog, he’s Kay’s dog. When she and her husband separated.  They decided Rodney, (the dog’s name, not her ex-husband) should live with Kay’s parents. He’s not great alone and he’s not a fan of being in the car either. That’s the thing with […]

Are you letting your environment affect your business?

I’m still playing golf.   Yes, it’s a bit cold although not too bad for the time of year.   Yes, it’s very wet and conditions are not conducive to smacking the ball long distances.  It’s not great for hitting cute shots from the rough either.      The environment becomes all-consuming at times.   It […]

Are potholes in your business making you lose momentum?

  It’s pretty where I live.   In the country. Lots of green space, fields, woodland and farms.   Once you get past our tiny hamlet of four houses the only dwellings for about a mile are three stables. We live on a single-track road (with passing places) in South Buckinghamshire.   It’s surrounded by […]

How can I deal with or prevent burnout?

I think many business minded people start off in life thinking only about the money – how much can I make and how quickly can I make it?   We put money above all else at the expense of the rest of our lives.   I was no different …   I lost a lot […]
