Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!

  If you’re reading this blog, the chances are that you work.  If you’re working, you hopefully enjoy what you do, but you may not always describe it as “fun”. If you’re running your own business, or in a senior role in someone else’s business, you’re probably not a clock watcher, and these days it’s […]

A move befitting of wise men (and women)!

  You’d be forgiven for thinking that anything I suggest that saves you money but means less fees for me is a bit like a turkey voting for Christmas. Nevertheless, I’m a big advocate of things that are probably better for you than they are for me. I’m a big fan of mediation – it’s […]

Your house, my home!

One of the downsides to having been in law for over 30 years, is that I’ve seen all the things that can go wrong. It doesn’t make me a pessimist, just a realist. It also makes me very keen to help my contacts avoid some of the mistakes that I’ve seen people make before. From […]

Eye spy with my little eye!

When I was younger, and heading out for the evening, the first question my parents would ask was where I was going (and who with) and the second was when I’d be back.  I never had much in terms of a curfew, but they wanted to know when to start worrying if I wasn’t back […]

Bridezilla isn’t the only scary thing about marriage!

  If you are anything like me and allergic to marriage, then not having to deal with ‘bridezilla’ syndrome is another reason to avoid a trip down the aisle. Of course, for those of you who do wish to tie the knot (preferably not around your own or each other’s necks) you need to consider […]

Dear Diary

  You may think that keeping a diary is as old fashioned as sock hops, hopscotch and talking to people instead of using text, but actually it’s the kind of “trick” that could save you a fortune, and not just at Halloween. Often by the time a client comes to me with a problem, they’ll […]

Double Bubble

  Being a prolific blogger, it’s often assumed that the things I write about and the stories that I tell are made up, or at least exaggerated to help me make my point. Well, whilst I do sometimes alter facts to protect the innocent (or the guilty as appropriate!) all my tales are true, which […]

Brand and Deliver!

Your money or your hard work and effort down the drain???? We’re all conscious of the importance of having a brand. Your name, your image, your reputation. It’s what you’ve worked hard to build and grow, often on line, so that when people think of your trade or profession, they think of you. When people […]

Read the instructions… even if you don’t follow them.

It’s one of my favourite lines from “Everyone’s free…”. It’s also one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard in a song. This came to mind recently when a potentially interesting email came into my in box.  Not one of those that you know (or should know!) is a scam, but a genuine […]

Happy New Year!

  I know time flies when you’re having fun, but it is only September, so perhaps a bit premature to be celebrating the end of the year! Well not necessarily – for my friends and family in the Jewish community, we’re entering the “High Holy” days, starting with Jewish New Year.  Like all Jewish holidays, […]
