A Happy New Year to All!

As I write this post on what has been dubbed “Blue Monday”, I just can’t understand that rather depressing sentiment at all.  Rather than being depressed at being back at work after a wonderful break (for us it was a short trip to Paris!), I am truly excited to get stuck back in.  There is so much positive sentiment around— the economic outlook and business confidence is reportedly up,  unemployment is going down and I personally feel a new energy as I look forward to 2014.


There are a myriad of opportunities out there, for those who are willing to go the extra mile and perhaps take a calculated risk or two.  And when better than at the beginning of a New Year to commit to one or two key changes that could really make a significant difference to your business.

A positive attitude is key and so, to those who choose to dwell on notions such as Blue Monday, I would say “Snap out of it”.  Surround yourself with positive thinkers, not negative, and be happy that you’re a business owner in charge of your own destiny, rather than an employee working for someone else’s gain.
