Ruined by Rooney

2017-09-14T12:04:37+00:00

I’m not a Wayne Rooney fan. This stark outlook has nothing WHATSOEVER to do with football, which I regard as nothing more than a noisy, slightly irritating distraction at best. I’m sure our Wayne is a very good footballer and well worth every penny of the £squillions paid for his services by whoever he plays [...]

Peter Drags on…

2017-09-14T12:04:54+00:00

Peter Jones of Dragons Den fame has openly said ”networking is the most cost effective route to market there is.” I’m not so sure… Networking is very important indeed. It provides a very enjoyable way to extend your reach, get your name out there and meet potential new clients and suppliers alike. But I believe [...]

When Black Sheep Turn Green

2017-08-02T10:27:06+00:00

We all know that if we continue to consume the earth’s resources at the current rate, the planet is in serious trouble. Whilst many of us recycle as much as possible, how many of us think about sustainability and our obligations to future generations when we go about our business activities? Typically we think of [...]

“Mundane to Magnificent” Cert PG

2017-08-02T10:27:07+00:00

I’m not a film critic who claims to have seen them all or plays hard to impress. I was, however, astounded recently by something that in many films is usually an overlooked detail. Subtitles. Oh yes, those slightly annoying words for those of us forced to read them when we don’t speaka-da-lingo. We spend hours [...]

Who wants to listen to me?

2017-08-02T10:27:07+00:00

Last night I battled through the sleet and snow to attend one of my usual networking meetings. It’s a great group and the attendees have huge amounts of energy and enthusiasm for their work. It’s the kind of meeting that feels more like a night out with friends than a formal environment where I can [...]

Got a Sneaky Britney?

2017-08-02T10:27:08+00:00

Business Vitamins is on Twitter. Yay. And? Well, we rather like it actually. Let me divulge our Twitter strategy, which, by the way, is no great secret and you’re quite welcome to copy it, refer it on and claim it as your own or simply ignore it. Here it is… Ready? We use Twitter to [...]

The Perfect Pitch

2017-08-02T10:27:08+00:00

Picture this… You’re in Portugal. On the Algarve. You’re lazily exploring a traditional local market. There are a few bargains and a lot of “designer gear” of iffy provenance. You see daily essentials you might expect to find more readily in a supermarket (toe nail clippers anyone?), as well as a big slice of local [...]

No Odd Socks Please

2017-08-02T10:27:08+00:00

The faintest sniff of global economic recovery is being smelt right now in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. For it is here that one young couple we know are feeling enough house-market positivity to embark on the arduous process of moving home. Considering a more rural location, perhaps they’ve reached a certain age where town living [...]

Colonisation by Americanisation

2017-09-14T11:57:43+00:00

My father-in-law enjoys a good rant. Although not a grumpy old man, he is a man in his mid sixties; successful in his career although long retired. Whilst it’s not his defining characteristic, he is compulsively METICULOUS in his execution of spelling and grammar. He hates American exports. He’s really thinking about their language exports [...]
