All The Stuff, Fluff & Fillers
I speak to people every day about many different things. Mostly I talk to them about stuff they want and can’t have, for one reason or another. Now sometimes, you end up talking about inane things like the weather or what your favourite or least favourite football team is doing this weekend! Or maybe just maybe you get to talk to another rugby fan and you can talk about your favourite national rugby team and how they are doing in whatever competition they are currently competing in.
Occasionally I get to talk to somebody about something a little more important than rugby, football or the weather. I get to talk to them about life and decisions and their own self belief,
Are You Guilty?
As a business owner and entrepreneur, we are responsible for many, if not all, facets of our businesses when we first get them underway. We act as the book keeper, the administrator and the operations guy. And we need to, budgets are tight, you need to plan every element of your business, you need to know what it is exactly that is happening, so you keep tight hold of the reins! But as the business grows, and the money situation improves, you continue to hold tightly to your baby! Feeling guilty yet?
We have all done it. Being a business owner and an entrepreneur means that your role is exactly that, a business owner. Be the head of the organisation not an oar in it.

But every now and again, something catches your eye, and you open the envelope and actually read the sales letter, or maybe just the pertinent and salient sections of the sales letter.
You get to the end and you are truly intrigued, “How much?” you say out loud to your self, thinking this is a bargain that is too good to be true,
Apprenticeships Perception is Improving
If you are a parent, you know what I mean when I talk about your child’s future. I have two kids and believe me, my wife and I spend a vast amount of time, not only discussing career and future opportunities with our kids but we are actively searching them out. We want to make sure that our children enjoy endless opportunities when it comes to career choices.
But we also want to make sure that they eventually make up their own minds and choose to do something that fills them with passion and drives them to get up in the morning. Many people are blessed and know exactly what they want to do from an early age,
We are once again at that time! It is the changing of the guard, the turning of the clocks, as we once again head into a new year. Whew, 2013 has certainly sped past. It feels like only yesterday when we were celebrating the 2013 New Year!
Well, I just want to say Happy New Year to one and all, I wish you all the success in the world, may your 2014 be your most profitable year ever, both in terms of business and personal success.
There is no time like the present to start thinking about the future, planning your goals and objectives and working out your strategy for the coming 30, 60 and 90 days. Plan out the next 180 days as well,
