Thank you for finding my blog; I hope you enjoy reading it and also find it useful.
So why am I writing a business blog?
In answer to that, I guess I need to start at the beginning. I’ve never been one for lots of rules and taking orders from other people. I know it’s a fact of life and at some point we all have to, but I wanted to minimise these things as much as I possibly could and so at the age of 21 I started my first business.
As both my business and my commitments grew (a mortgage and a growing family) so did the rules and having to do what others say. But I still wanted to ‘play’ a little in business and at the same time earn some extra money for the fun things I wanted that my mortgage payments wouldn’t let me have, and so I’ve always been involved with other businesses; mostly successful but some not so.
Building businesses successfully from scratch, coupled with the knowledge gained of other business sectors, has given me not only a great deal of enjoyment but also invaluable practical experiences.
For the past six years I have concentrated on providing marketing advice plus a wide-range of other business learning to my clients. Often this has led to mentoring and consultancy.
And, I guess, that is why I’m writing this blog because other business owners might find my ideas and experience useful.
