August is usually a quiet month, but I have to say this August has definitely been my quietest August in my 21 years in trade and industry. It has left me some short time for rest and recuperation, which these days I need quite a lot of. This is mostly down to business being very quiet generally in view of Brexit.
So what’s been happening?
I have taken a few new things on and dumped some rubbish by the wayside. I have good availability for consulting and new deals from 24 September onwards.
I urgently require lifestyle businesses to sell nationwide.
Project Retail 2018 are looking for new products and I have some exciting other stuff on my desk.
I am looking forward to producing the October edition of The P2 List, this should be a nice bumper issue and will be published on 15th September 2016. Copy and advertising deadlines are looming large.
The usual health complaints are there but so what. Arthritis in both legs get worse all the time. I cannot do anything about it but live with it and try and work around it.
I shall be on the road all of the week commencing 5 September, starting with my annual pilgrimage to the Autumn Fair at the NEC Birmingham and following that with a trip to Dublin for the Franchise Expo. I will be travelling South West to the counties of Tipperary, Limerick and Kerry for 4 meetings in one day and then travelling back to London via a stop for more meetings in Dublin. Hopefully I will not have the traffic issues I faced on the last trip! I still have some space for 1-2-1 meetings in Dublin.
This will be the first major run on business trips since most health issues kicked in so it will be interesting to see how well or how badly things go. I think that getting the worst of the business out of the way first in the form of two days at the NEC is the best thing! I like a good trade event and for an event such as Autumn Fair the NEC is the best place to hold it, but roger me backwards with a steam roller, the place is soulless and not much fun!
So that’s it for August

So whats been happening? Workwise: Well the July edition of The P2 List has just been published you can get it here: [Download not found]. I am enjoying the publishing side. I just need to automate it a bit more 🙂 I am now developing some new products and services, the first of these will be available shortly. The P2 Set has a quite a few new opportunities on offer. Personally, well for the time being I have avoided a credit card splurge on the catawiki website – check out their modern classic auction if you are a petrol head, there are some lovely cars on there. I finally managed to get my home office remodelled, all it now needs is a wide screen telly and an xbox 🙂 I also refitted my private cloud and it is working very well indeed. Health issues have become a problem and I am now working mostly from home. Osteo arthritis and this sod have seen to that amongst other things health related which I do not wish to discuss here. 🙁 I have space for some new business opportunities and some non exec and trustee work. On another note I am having a goood giggle at all the chaos this little matter of brexit has caused. This blog has now been running for four years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my readers.
So What has been happening recently? Workwise The new magazine is out now. I have started a new podcast channel that is in its infancy here. Both of these projects have been great fun to do and please do look out for more soon. I have also started to develop two new products, these should be ready by August. I currently have some room for new projects such as consultancy and business development. I also have room for a few new investments. Please use the form below to contact me if this is of any interest. I am looking forward to Project Retail 2018 taking more shape soon J Lastly I am looking for regional representatives, please click here for more information. Personally This little brute is getting worse as is the hearing loss and the osteoarthritis and this little lot has thrown up some other nasty health related stuff which I shall not speak more about on this post. Its been a busy but good few months and I also note that it is nearly 4 years since I started this blog in June 2012. In that time there have been nearly 36,000 unique visitors and I have made nearly 200 posts. What started as an exercise to get me to write better has both succeeded and become a bit of a hobby. I do enjoy writing here. You can see all 200 posts by clicking here. It has also been good fun. Thats its for now! Thank you all for reading 😀
The P2 List is a monthly magazine written by my business, The P2 Set. In June 2016 edition are over 200 business and property opportunities either on brokerage or advertised by the business on behalf of clients. The total value of these opportunities is just over €400 million. There are also some good quality features in this edition, including top tips for buyers of lifestyle businesses. I also discuss possible effects of “brexit” on the business brokerage in a very wide context.
