    My Business Is Out Of Action

    Hey, how’s it all going? Are you enjoying lockdown? OK, so not EXACTLY enjoying it, but more of ‘making the most of it’ business-wise! Believe it or not, I have mixed feelings about it all. Not because I’m worried about contracting the virus because I’m not, what will be will be in that scenario. I’m more concerned about what is going to happen to me and my business. Back in December Before this pandemic took hold, I was just starting to gather momentum again after closing The Lady Saddler down over the Christmas period. If you have read the blog from back in December you will remember that I had…

  • A Dream Becoming Reality…

    I have always had the desire to become self employed and although I have had several businesses of my own I have always been a hard working and dedicated employee alongside them; after all this was always the wage that paid the bills at the end of the month. I have set up and run four businesses so far in my lifetime and although all of them have not been a raging success, nor survived to be five years old or more, I truly believe I have learnt invaluable lessons from each and every one of them.
