Father's Day Small Business Gift Guide

Father's Day Small Business Gift Guide

This year Father's Day may be a little different to all the rest, although who knows where we will be in this pandemic by 21st June 2020! The one thing that won't change though is that the day will still happen, it will still roll around and for those of us that can and would like to celebrate it I have created a small business gift guide.

New Year Goals - Feel the fear and do it anyway!

New Year Goals - Feel the fear and do it anyway!

I am setting my goals a little later than usual this year so I am sorry if you are totally over new year goals by now! I am normally so excited for a new year and can’t wait to set some goals for my business, however this year for some reason it has taken a week or so for me to feel ready to think about it. In all honestly one of the reasons for this is that I ended 2019 feeling a bit despondent and disappointed. I set myself some pretty big goals for 2019 and I didn’t achieve...
