Are you going to hit the ground running?

I’ve been speaking to a lot of business owners this week. We’ve all taken some serious hits with this Coronavirus sceanrio. Many have lost clients, had new projects put on hold and some have had to shut up shop completely until the lockdown is over. But there’s something interesting that I’ve noticed. Some business owners are feeling pretty beat. They’ve …

Fast forward to today and I’m writing this from my kitchen table at home. I went to pick up a prescription the other day and it was like something out of a zombie movie! The …

How to Clear a Room…

I’m a big believer that good things come when you get out of your comfort zone. As you know, there’s nothing I love to do more than watch the footie and enjoy a beer down the pub. I’m a definite beer drinker. Not vodka. Not gin. Just beer. So when an email popped in my inbox offering me a wine …

Like a Kid in a Sweet Shop

I love a good trip to Poundland. If you don’t know, Poundland is kind of a discount surplus store. They sell everything from toothbrushes and deodorant to fancy dress and dog treats, all for £1. But I don’t go for the cosmetics. Every 3 or 4 months I make a quick trip to stock up my sweet supplies for my …

Aside from my family, there’s only one thing I love more than freight. Football. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered that freight and football are coming together to create …

A Punch In The Gut…

I hate rejection. That punch in the gut feeling when someone tells you ‘no’ they don’t want what you’re offering. I really, truly hate it. But despite that, I still put myself out there, approaching new prospects and trying to build connections every single day. Why? Because I truly believe in the value that we bring to our customers.
