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 at 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 eight years I have concentrated on providing support, marketing advice, networking know-how, plus a wide-range of other business learning to my clients. Often this has led to mentoring and consultancy.
And, that is why I’m writing this blog because other business owners might find my ideas and experience useful.
