    Had to let go an employee today - what a day!

    An overwhelming number of supportive and compassionate responses. Thank you all. I have quite a lot on at the moment but will make sure that I respond on an individual basis as soon as things calm down. Just wanted to drop a quick note to say how much appreciated your comments (!)...

    Had to let go an employee today - what a day!

    One of our very hard working and trusted people had to be let go today because our client no longer has work for her. It was such a difficult day for me and I would be lying if I said that I am not affected/dont care/only business etc. Rubbish. I feel responsible, I know her life situation and...

    What’s your Meaning of Life?

    This is such a great book (one of my favourite ones!) and so good of you to be re-reading it, well done. However my understanding of the gist of Dr Frankl's message and the way I applied it was: You find a meaning in life by: 1. Having suffered/truly suffered/how you conducted yourself in...

    INTRO If I was your son, what advice or direction would you give me?

    Just edited my previous post - perhaps I focused too much on the principles of general life philosophy and not on what you really asked. If I am honest I dont know exactly what advice you need - if you were my son, you may have different questions on different days on different topics, so this...

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    Yes, you got it, and it's exactly what I meant. A well drawn suite of documents should be able to capture everything.

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    Sorry to hijack your thread but there is a way to "get married" without getting married legally, if that seems to be the concern here. It is very simple: 1. Exchange vows in some formal ceremony, be it religious or non religious in front of close family and friends, it's your own ceremony...

    INTRO If I was your son, what advice or direction would you give me?

    This is a very mature and considered advice, if I may say so. Are you able to recommend a good resource for studying statistics please (above penultimate paragraph, point 1). Just so happens I am reading a textbook on Economics for Business. As I read this book, I come across a huge number of...

    HOT TOPIC Dressing For Success... Stop looking like a fool.

    Here are my 2 cents (from female perspective, if I may?): 1. There is a good book (very old book first published around 1984) called Colour for Men - a complete approach to looking your best by Carole Jackson. Understand and learn your colours and what complements your natural...

    HOT TOPIC Have Smartphones Destroyed Humanity?

    Yes looking forward to hearing about this but I can already imagine... One thing my husband and I are very adamant on is NO PHONES around our children. They will not use them nor be exposed to them until they are sufficiently mentally and physically developed. I owe them that much as a parent...

    O/T: HEALTH Phone Addiction - The Breaking Addiction Series

    I have some tips which I'll type up quickly: 1. Switch off your phone often. Try leaving it in a draw for a few days on and off. Eventually, you realize you don't depend on it that much (unless you await some form of business response etc but even that should have healthy boundaries). 2. Leave...

    MJ DeMarco! You Destroyed My Life! Please HELP! Am I Losing my MIND?!!

    Personally I get the impression that this is a phase of life issue. You work hard, you have achieved a lot already, you continue to work hard.... but.... something is not quite right. You are 35, no sign of serious relationship (who on earth uses Tinder these days!!), no real love, no...

    INTRO Brief intro from BB13

    Got it, yes this makes perfect sense. Thought you meant that but just wanted to clarify. Thank you. Will be keeping this idea at the back of my mind and if something crops up, I will let you know.

    INTRO Brief intro from BB13

    Excellent! So pleased to read this! Thanks for sharing and well done to you and your wife for making this happen. We (my husband and I) are also looking into property development. The UK market is not great at the moment but we are involved in a project abroad which is very promising and...

    INTRO Brief intro from BB13

    Thanks v. much AgainstAllOdds, that's a very astute and insightful suggestion. I agree this seems to be a huge market(!) May I ask, what do you mean when you say you have 'no qualifications' - do you mean you are not a parent yet or have no professional experience in the industry? Thanks...

    My experience thus far at Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within Seminar

    Yes you are right, it is a struggle to find these kind of people but this is not (at least not in my case) because of how I perceive myself. Facts are facts. How do you distinguish between a fact and limiting belief? Do you have a mechanism? Example: this time last year I was doing squats...

    INTRO Brief intro from BB13

    I am looking into this as well, yes! Not sure I like the law itself as much as I used to though!

    INTRO Brief intro from BB13

    Thanks ChrisV. Yes, you are right, being a business owner is essential for flexibility. And I should have done it sooner. I have been bracing myself for a long time but my passion for law kept me cruising down the damn 'middle lane' ....which I detest. It's a time for money trap! I enjoyed...
