Are you gambling with your business & risking it all?
Many people will tell you that deciding to run your own business is a gamble, and they’re absolutely right. So how do you know that your gamble is a clever one and one that will pay out in time? What pay out will it give if successful and when? Will you be a winner or […]Read more
Get out of your comfort zone – 100 storeys up
What’s the parallel between hanging off a skyscraper 1,100 feet in the air and running a business? It’s something I thought about while dangling over the Las Vegas strip recently off the edge of the tallest freestanding observation tower in the US – The Stratosphere. So, what made me do it? I wasn’t suspended in […]Read more
Who holds you accountable?
Did you ever play on Scalextric as a child? Maybe you play it with your kids or grandkids now. There’s a lot of skill involved, getting the cars to just the right speed so they don’t fly off the track. It’s fun, and it can take a lot of concentration. Here’s a picture of me after […]Read more
Building walls to protect your business
I recently visited the beautiful Medieval city of Tallinn in Estonia. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, contains lots of beautiful architecture (as you’d expect) and has some rather quirky claims to fame, such as being home to Skype and Europe’s longest-serving pharmacy (see my other blog on running a business for 600 years). The […]Read more
Happy Birthday Tendo! What we’ve learnt…
If Tendo had just started school… Tendo is five years old this month and I’m delighted we’ve reached this point. The reality is, over 50% of SME businesses do not reach this age.

Time bandits and how to conquer them
On a recent city break to Tallinn in Estonia I admired the city’s oldest clock, which is set into the wall of a 13th century church. It was added in 1433, around a century after building of the church started and is said to be one of the city’s most photographed objects. Here’s me doing […]Read more
Is your business a diamond in the rough or does it dazzle in the dimmest of lights?
Almost anyone can run a business, but just running a business isn’t the same thing as running a successful one that ignites your passion. You don’t have to pass any tests to start a company and you certainly don’t have to take any specialist advice to help you run it, so how do you make […]Read more
Could your business run for six centuries?
My recent city break in Tallinn, Estonia, gave me much to think about. As we wandered through the Medieval Old Town we came across one of the oldest continuously running pharmacies in Europe. Not only is the business still going six centuries after it was founded, but it’s still using the same premises. 600+ years […]Read more
Are you running your business with fear?
Are you anxious when you go to work? Would you admit that you have fears you need to face almost daily? Not many would, but it’s a certainty that every day, people running their own business have to overcome fear of some sort. What marketing should I be doing to fill my pipeline? Where are […]Read more
