Am I an Entrepreneur?

I was on a public speaking course recently and I had a chat with the presenter afterwards about being an entrepreneur.

Eric Bristow, Who Are You?

I’ve recently been watching I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. It’s strangely interesting and Ant& Dec are hilarious. I like Eric Bristow’s catch phrase of “Who are Ya?” and it set my mind thinking. Well who are you? Do your customers know who you are? Do your customers know what your values are? [...]

Fast Track to Business Success

The phrase “fast track to business success” seems a little cliche doesn’t it. Perhaps it’s overused or only bears a passing resemblance to the article it’s describing.

There are ways to get to page one and most are common sense and hard work. If we take my software [...]

Not That I’m a Speed Freak

Well it wouldn’t be like me to be overly concerned about keeping page load times down as they are included as part of SEO and Google rankings… now would it . Just done the usual Pingdom Tools tests on page load times and at 745ms, i.e. less than one second, I think I’m well within [...]

Make 2013 Your Year

For many of us there’s no right time to start a business of our own. Often changes in our lives, in our employment, in our financial situation or even in our health will be the catalyst to get started out on our own. Whether you’re thinking of doing a little work from home to  supplement [...]
