Update 18/02/2017


Well the usual health related stuff has actually kept me out of hospital since my last update. Things have been reasonably busy too, I shall be sharing a lot more about some business developments in the next few weeks. I am also finally managing to change some working methods for the better so it does not matter if I am only able to work 2 days in a week or 4. 5 day /40 hour plus working has not been possible for a while but things are stitching together nicely.  My February pilgrimage to Birmingham did not go according to plan and I found Spring Fair far too quiet for my liking with a brought on decent leads to be had. This is down to the unpredictable way things are in the world right now. It is disappointing to have what feels like a wasted trip though.

My main trip to Ireland was cancelled for a number of reason, however I did manage to get a “flying” visit of 24 hours in to Dublin to sort out some issues and “bang some heads together. I should be heading out for a week during March 2017.

The weekly deals newsletters are now going from strength to strength with readership growing every week.

Thats all for now folks! 🙂

February 2017 Update


So whats been happening recently? Well its been fairly quiet, but that has been of my own volition. Usual health related stuff and spending more time than I would like inside hospitals has mean’t that business has taken a small back seat recently.

The week after I will be Ireland on business. I will be visiting Belfast, Dublin and possibly Cork before high tailing it back to Birmingham for the franchise expo.
