By Hollie on October 16, 2018 in

The Las Vegas story of $1,000,000 in cold, hard cash! When we were in Las Vegas a couple of weeks back (have I mentioned we went to Las Vegas?!), we took a trip to Fremont Street in the Downtown area of the city. For the benefit of anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure before, Downtown […]

(Tales from Las Vegas Part Two – you can read Part One on the greatest customer service we’ve ever received here) When do you think a client is most likely to purchase something from you?

Las Vegas, Baby! And Some Of The Best Service We’ve Ever Received

By Hollie on October 8, 2018 in

I’ll never forget the day we visited the Overlook Grill. I’ll never forget the date, either.   Not least because it marked the start of my forty-second year here on planet Earth.

How To Schedule Facebook Posts 2018

By Hollie on August 30, 2018 in

Facebook has a habit of changing things without warning anyone.   Well, maybe they warn someone but I never seem to get the memo! One of the recent ‘improvements’ – as they would no doubt dub it – revolves around the scheduling of posts. Now scheduling posts in Facebook is one of the best time […]

Alton Towers: Kings Of The Upsell

By Hollie on August 23, 2018 in

So this weekend Hollie and I made our annual pilgrimage to Alton Towers.   We always try to make it once a year because, well, roller coasters!

By Hollie on August 15, 2018 in

Competition.   Love it or loathe it sooner or later we all have to deal with it. Following on from an email I received from one of our private coaching clients this week I thought that maybe there were lots of others who might just be going through something similar. In the video below you’ll […]
