What Is Business Roadkill?

Posted by in Latest, Robert Craven Marketing Expert | 0 comments

As I said to a potential consultancy client last week (she asked for honest feedback): “Your business is like a rabbit frozen in the headlights, incapable of making a move or a decision, unable to move in one direction or another. “You need to unfreeze, relax, take stock and weigh up the choices. With great speed you need to take the bold decision: left or right, up or down. Speed is of the essence. The consequences of making no decision are there for all to see. Do you want to be one more piece of roadkill for the statistics book?” I apologised for my bluntness but the world seems...

It is probably the most stress-filled, expensive and significant day of your adult life. Everything for your wedding day is organised and ready. Or is it? Paul Cook takes a look at the ins and outs of providing a safety net for your big day. It’s Your Wedding Day! The Big Day is here at last. The catering is sorted, the marquee is set up, the DJ is on his way. Nothing can go wrong now.

Why I Love Plymouth Hoe

Posted by in Around Plymouth, Latest | 0 comments

Plymouth Hoe is one of Plymouth’s most beautiful places. The stunning sea views over the Sound mean that you can watch yachts, speedboats, tourist boats, navy frigates and every other kind of vessel you can think of, as they chug across the wide blue waters. Visitors to Plymouth Hoe can see the breakwater, Drake’s Island and glimpse the greenery of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in the distance. Those of us lucky enough to live in Plymouth can sit and enjoy this fabulous vista from one of the many benches on the Hoe, or whilst reclining on the vast grassy expanse at the feet of our very own historic lighthouse. Alternatively we...

Pleas for Scottish Independence have taken a new turn with regard to the planned increases in the state pension age. Currently, it will rise to 66 between November 2018 and October 2020 and to 67 between 2034 and 2036. The Scottish National party leader Nicola Sturgeon, who was Scottish health secretary for five years, claims this would be unfair to the Scots as they have a lower life expectancy than the English! Men in Scotland life to 76.8, 2.1 years below the national average; women to 80.9, 1.8 years lower than the national average. Why stop at countries, why not cities; the average lifespan for men in Glasgow is...

Learning From Your Financial Mistakes

Posted by in Finance | 0 comments

Learning from your mistakes can be a real asset. There is nothing more demoralising that realising you have been through this once before and how did you manage to let it happen again! Learning from the mistakes of others is just as useful – and a lot less stressful and potentially damaging. That is especially true in the financial world. With the frequency of changes to regulations concerning investments, tax and pensions, plus the inventiveness of scammers to get hold of other people’s money, it makes sense to monitor newspapers, TV, the internet and the radio. Don’t forget the radio. Paul Lewis and his Radio 4 “Money Box” programme...
