Cowboys & Indians?

As you know, I send out stories, ideas and anecdotes every week. And I get a lot of replies. Sometimes people share their own stores with me in return. A few weeks ago I sent out an email about how gangs have found a new way to capitalize on the current COVID situation – smuggling fake medicines and PPE into …

How Did I Miss this?

I love to travel. Working in the freight industry, several times a year I usually get to pack my bags and explore new and exciting places all around the world. This year’s a little different. Not only am I locked up at home like Rapunzel right now – but we’ve no idea of when this madness is going to end! …

A Glimpse Into The Future?

  I never thought I’d say this, but I could really get used to this working from home malarky. I won’t lie – at first, things were really tough. Trying to get my work done at the kitchen table with the usual family chaos going on all around me was hard. But it’s been a few weeks now and I’ve …

Blowing Your Own TRUMP-et?

I love a good Trump joke. I know he’s got a fair few supporters, and a fair few haters, but he entertains me for sure. When he’s not making bizarre suggestions like injecting disinfectant to treat coronavirus, he’s making sexist comments or declaring that global warming is something the Chinese made up! While I find the concept of him being …

It’s a Disgrace

  I need to have a little rant today. I usually like to keep it positive, but something’s put a bee in my bonnet and I need to share. Illegal goods have always been a problem in the freight industry. From drugs and weapons to illegal animals and trafficked people – there’s always a small group of disgraceful criminals trying …

Who’s Steering The Ship?

Ever watched one of those “car-crash” type videos? You know the ones where you can see something is going to go terribly, terribly wrong… but you can’t do anything to stop it? Earlier this week I came across a video of a container ship crashing into a crane at Busan New Port terminal. It was painful to watch. It all …

Be Like Jack…

I can’t get away from it. It seems wherever I look, my inbox, my newsfeed or even LinkedIn, Coronavirus is all people are talking about. I get it. It’s big news. Probably the biggest we’ll ever see in our lives. But we’re in it for the long haul and I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get a …

Stick to What You’re Good At

Now, I don’t know about you but I have a long, long list of “one day” jobs. One day I’ll paint the fences. One day I’ll pressure wash the pathway. One day I’ll repaint the garage door… you get the gist? So last week I decided to put this quarantine time to good use and get some of these “one …

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 …

Dig In. Dig Deep.

ell, that changed fast. A few short weeks ago Coronavirus was just an inconvenience impacting the freight industry from the other side of the world. 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 …
