Been a bit quiet recently….

7.02.2014. Sorry but I’ve been a bit quiet over the last week or so.

A combination of busy at work, a major illness in the family and a laziness on my part are to blame. But I’ve given myself a kick in tonight and I will make sure that I get better. Promise!

So, what’s new?

Well, it’s a period of significant change, more of that in future posts, but in a few words, it looks like I’ll be taking on a new project soon after the client I’m working for now took on a new director to take over the function that I created.

The weather in the UK has been dreadful, very very wet and extremely windy – it really gets me down. It seems so long ago that we felt the warmth of the sun on our backs – I really miss that feeling during the winter.

I’ve signed up to cycle from Barcelona to Nice over 6 dates in the summer so should feel the sun then for certain. Can’t wait actually. Need to get back into training! Maybe tomorrow but listening to the rain and the wind howling around outside now, I may need to rethink that in the morning.


What do you want from 2014?

1.1.2014. A New Year, a new start, a new opportunity.

What does 2014 mean to you? For me, it’s all these things. It’s the chance to carry on the significant progress I made in 2013 to create the life that I desire. A life full of opportunity, a life full of fun, a life full of new experiences and a life full of laughter.

I’m really looking forward to realising this lifestyle in 2013. What this means is that I need to build my business development activities so that I have a team of people delivering our core consultancy offering, rather than being reliant on my time to deliver projects. In addition, I need to continue to develop and deliver my online business. This will result in me being location independent and allow me to follow my other passions of travel, photography and cycling.

We have already scheduled in some travel – we will be visiting Venice again in February and a tour of France in the summer. We also hope to take in New York at some stage so lots of photography opportunities – the 2014 photo book promises to be a cracker!

In terms of my cycling passion, I’m hoping to invest in an updated carbon fibre bike and take in another challenge – I’m looking at the Milan to Monaco or Paris – Nice rides, ahead of an attempt on the Lands End – John O’Groats ultimate challenge in 2015.
