Madness In Myanmar

Myanmar has never really been a place of democratic peace. From military regimes that ruled with an iron fist for decades to accusations of genocide, Myanmar (previously known as Burma) has a bit of a bad reputation. Here in the UK, we’ve handled that in an very British way… Ask an average Brit where Myanmar is and they’ll look at …

It’s Just One Biscuit…

I’ve been on a diet for the last 20 years. Every Monday I start afresh convinced that this will be the week. By Wednesday I’m faltering and by Thursday I’ve ordered takeout and I’m telling myself “I’ll start again on Monday” Now, call me crazy… but I’m starting to think this strategy isn’t working too well! As the famous quote …

Well, where to begin.

It’s my last email of 2020 and as a tradition, I like to do a little round-up of all that’s happened over the last 12 months! Well, where to begin. There’s no denying that 2020 is a year like no other – for the freight industry and individuals all around the world! For the first time in over a century …

A Christmas Like No Other…

Just a few days to go until the big day. The tree is still up. The Christmas lights are twinkling. The presents are wrapped and the fridge filled with mince pies, Christmas pud and a healthy selection of beverages. But I know for many, this year won’t be like all the others. If you’re one of the millions who have …

The Long Game

I think we’ve got a bit of a problem. I’m going to show my age a little bit now, but I’m really concerned about the younger generations. They’ve grown up in a world of instant. Instant tv. Instant messaging. Instant coffee. Even shopping is pretty much instant with Amazon Prime’s next day delivery well established and same-day delivery now being …

$30k a Day?

A few weeks ago, I was sat at home watching daytime TV – now don’t hate on me! I wasn’t feeling too great and needed a bit of respite… I was watching This Morning and Holly Willoughby was interviewing this young girl who was making $30,000 per video on TikTok. Over 1 million views per upload – 3 cents per …

Is Your Business About To Be Hijacked?

How many men does it take to hijack an oil tanker? 7 apparently. No, it’s not a bad joke. Although with Christmas just around the corner I have plenty of those to share with you… “Who hides in a bakery at Christmas? A mince spy!” “What do you call a cow that lives in an igloo? An eskimoo!” “What do …

It’s Chadd ‘O’ Time!

I get a lot of feedback on my weekly emails. The occasional F-Off – but mostly a hugely positive response. Some people reply to me every week to add their own stories or give their own ideas. Others drop me a line occasionally if there’s something particularly relevant to them. Just last week one of my dear friends in the …

Ever been stung by hidden charges?

When I booked my last holiday, I was in a bit of a rush. My original booking had been cancelled thanks to our friend Covid, and I was desperate to get some time away with the family before the summer ended. So instead of booking through my usual online travel agent, I had to look elsewhere. First, I looked at …
