Lie to me

  You know me, I work hard but I like my chill time too. I’ve recently started watching a new TV series. It’s a drama about a micro-expression specialist. He solves crimes, saves marriages and prevents catastrophes using micro-expressions to discover the truth. It’s called Lie To Me. Worth a watch if you like a good drama. It’s all fiction …

Lockdown Wedding Woes

  Two days ago I had the honour of being invited to a lockdown wedding. Now, a wedding invite is an honour anytime – but a lockdown wedding invite is something special. You see, thanks to our buddy Boris, weddings are currently limited to 15 guests. Yup – you read that right – 15 people and that’s including the bride, …

Are You An Email Warrior?

I’m no spring chicken. When it comes to business I’ve done my time and got more than a quarter of a century of experience behind me. But despite my commitment to learning, progression and personal growth – there is one skill that I’ve always struggled with. Time management. I’ve done all the courses and read all the books. I’ve bought …

A Dangerous Assumption

  We’re in the process of getting set up on some new software – Cargowise – the same freight platform that all the big boys use. It’s pretty exciting stuff. We’ve had a little help from a Government grant to get it installed, but as part of the deal, we had to attend an online training session. Now, like the …

My Birthday Wish…

I don’t like to blow my own trumpet – but today is my birthday! 29 again! Only kidding… this year I reach level 49 and I’m truly thankful for every birthday I get to celebrate. But this birthday is a little different. Thanks to lockdown there’s no pub, no parties and no big celebration. Just me, my family and a …

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 …

Can You Get It Cheaper?

I get it. You’ve got a business to run and a bottom line to protect. But cheap isn’t always better. In fact, sometimes cheap ends up costing you more. Like my friend Jeff. Now, Jeff is an old client of mine. He’s used Millennium to move his cargo for years. But a few months ago he got suckered into an …

A Dog’s For Life… But What About A Catfish?

We’ve all seen the “A dog’s for life, not just for Christmas” ads. And quite rightly so, if you’re going to get yourself a puppy you’d better be prepared to love and care for it for the next 10-20 years. But did you know that around Christmastime there’s a similar problem with fish? Apparently, well-meaning family members have been buying …

Shutting Up Shop?

It’s my favourite time of year. Nope, not Christmas. Football season. If you’ve followed me for any amount of time then you’ll know that I’m a huge footie fan and an avid Aston Villa supporter. I’ve got a season ticket. I go to as many games as I can. So as everyone gets excited about Christmas, I’m getting excited about …

You Can’t Sweep This Under The Rug…

One of the hot topics, if you’ll excuse the pun, is global warming. Over recent years we’ve seen more droughts, increased wildfires, animals falling into extinction and extreme weather all around the globe. Ice caps are melting, and as a result, the sea levels are rising. While the validity of most aspects of global warming fall under debate, global mean …
