You think business is tough? Try a week in someone else’s shoes!

You think business is tough? Try a week in someone else’s shoes!

Many people know I am a registered nurse and still do some nursing as my “hobby”. I was asked by a networking colleague if I could provide some respite care for an elderly man with vascular dementia, sound easy? We sometimes think we have it tough in business, I put it back to you, it’s nothing in comparison to what people go through when caring for a loved one at home. I started on Saturday morning just before 8am, I had my whole week planned, the trips we would make to keep Fred (name changed) occupied and bring back some of his old memories. The first thing I realised was trips had to be planned around toilet stops and clean trousers, whilst Fred was not incontinent, actually going to the toilet without missing was a major problem. Saturday was quite uneventful…

Sh*t Happens!

Sh*t Happens!

In business sh*t happens, we all know the awkward client, the deadlines, cashflow issues and what happens next? We work our way through it, longer hours, more stress, eat on the go often from fast food places, get home pour the large glass of wine ( we all know there are only four glasses in a bottle!) there’s never any time for exercise and sleep seems so elusive. Stress levels go up, so do cholesterol levels and blood pressure – these all contribute to high risk levels for vascular disease. Oh and if you’re a smoker, you probably smoke more too!

Taking Time Out

Taking Time Out

As busy business owners, it is really important to take time out to chill away from the stresses and strains of work. Many of us also spend far too much time behind a computer screen or attached to a mobile telephone! One of the issues with this lifestyle is the lack of fresh air and sunlight – so our advice is to get yourself out in the open air!

Outsourcing – The way forward?

Outsourcing – The way forward?

With increased costs and red tape with taking on employees, more and more people are turning to outsourcing. These days it seems that you can pretty much outsource anything giving you the large company structure but without the salary bill. Currently, we outsource the following: HR needs to Denise Waite at The HR Dept Our LinkedIn management to Mark Northall at The Dauben Group Bookkeeping, Accounts and Payroll go to Simon Edgington at Direct Business Services (Midlands) Website, Website Support and Marketing to Neil Lawman at Blazing Raisin Solutions Telecoms and Billing Support to Chris Bagnall at Minotaur IT support to Tristan Martin at TL Martin Ltd I don’t just see these people as my suppliers, they are an extension of my business, these people have gro

A hike in The Grand Canyon – 4 years on

A hike in The Grand Canyon – 4 years on

I cannot believe it is four years since Iain and I took on the biggest challenge of our lives, so much has changed since then! I know some people have asked for an update as to what we did after, so with the re release of the blogs, I thought I would share an update. Neither of us have ever really heard from The Welshman since we got back, I guess I was always hacked off at him, the fact that he put himself and us at risk, he hadn’t done nearly enough training to take on such a crazy hike – but it doesn’t matter anymore, he’s safe and well, and Iain and I achieved our goal. Iain and I discussed doing Kilimanjaro, it never happened though! Iain went on to take up cycling in a big way and has done some really tough trips, including the Lands End to John O’ Groats. His children are now gr

A hike in The Grand Canyon – Part 10 – It’s Over!

A hike in The Grand Canyon – Part 10 – It’s Over!

The drive back to Flagstaff to drop off Ian “The Welshman”s car, was interesting to say the least! The thing was he was still tired, so Iain and I were concerned about his condition to drive. We had originally booked coach tickets back to the North rim, unfortunately because of the delay getting out of the Canyon, these were no longer valid. The journey to the North rim is 210 miles and takes around 4 hours, then we needed to drive back to Vegas, another 265 miles and 4.5 hours, however we also now needed to go to Vegas via Flagstaff first to take the Welshman’s hire car back – a mere 4 hours detour!

A hike in The Grand Canyon – Part 9 – The morning after!

I’m not quite sure what time I woke, I know I tried to put my feet on the floor and the pain was awful! Getting out of bed to get to the bathroom seemed to be the hardest thing ever! I looked at the state of the bed, the lovely crispy, white sheets were filthy, and I recalled I hadn’t even bothered to shower before bed! It was now Tuesday 4th June, I had last showered around 3am on Sunday morning!

A hike in The Grand Canyon – Part 8 – We made it – Now what?!

Having got out of the Canyon around 10.30pm, Iain and I were faced with the dilemma of trying to find somewhere to stay, we had no idea where to go, but eventually stumbled across two very nice ladies who offered to show us the way to Bright Angel Lodge- I swear it was another miles walk – I felt every step, and worse it was cold! My tee shirt was still damp from wetting it earlier, but now we were out of the Canyon the temperature had dropped considerably. We arrived at Bright Angel Lodge, Iain approached the front desk, at this point we really didn’t care about the cost of any rooms and had even agreed that if the only room available was a twin it really didn’t matter, we just needed sleep! I couldn’t believe the service from the reception, all the lodges are interlinked on
