Websites have changed a lot in the past few years and with peoples approach to browsing, more so on mobile devices, their attention span has reduced and need for a quick return has increased.

Damn, a few weeks ago I got a new phone (Motorola G 4G) , but I have just been on Amazon and seen that they are doing a deal on their Fire Phone.


Would you spend hundreds or thousands of pounds with someone who gives a card or has a website with only a mobile number on it?

For a few years I worked from home - I hated it, for several reasons, mostly because I felt lonely (I hadn't really discovered networking or a good business community to join) and craved being in a room with other people (amazing, that's why many start their own business in the first place!),

There is a saying that I use a lot with clients and startups and I am sure you might have heard it before:

"Sales are vanity & profit is sanity"

I have often wondered why people appear to enter the Den, with dodgy products, weird valuations and no ideas about the business plan.

I run an event business that is focused on bringing local businesses closer to their council, whilst delivering information, inspiration and innovation.

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a presentation to the Hammersmith & Fulham Enterprise Club, kindly hosted by Santander Bank, on ways to grow your business. I focused on quick wins that are free or are low cost, most of which are common sense, practical activities, however, unless you have been through the growing experience, they might not be apparent.

It has been a long time coming, but I have now launched my new website.

I have cut out a lot of the 'nice' stuff and will try to keep it focussed and to the point. 

After speaking to small businesses I work with and meet, I have decided to focus on delivering information, guidance, tips & tricks on how you might be able to generate additional revenues or save money, contributing to your bottom line.  Some of this will be via my experience, advice I have received or systems that I employ in my businesses.
