Genuinely Delighted

Following on from last week's blog of the lacklustre reaction to 'Tell a story'. I thought I'd show something from the other side this week. A simple, yet effective, testimonial from a brand-new client. We received this feedback after his first send: "Thank you Lee, After working for many years and…

Nobody's Perfect

Two weeks ago, I wrote a blog titled 'Tell a story' It was about how I'd been reminded about something I already knew and advise on daily. As usual, the following week, the blog went as an email to my CRM. It bombed. It brought in around 15% of the usual volume of leads my blogs achieve. Not as man…

Blog about a Blog

This is my 10th consecutive Wednesday blog. I made a commitment to myself to do this weekly. To keep the site content fresh. Another way of getting the name out there.

Why weren't you doing that before?

I was speaking with a good friend last week. From a safe distance of course! We were talking about how lockdown was treating us on a personal and business level. I told him of all the extra things I'd been doing in the business that have worked well. Stuff where I've pushed myself out of my comfort…

Room for cake?

As you know, we're coming up for week-8 of lockdown. During those first few weeks, I became conscious of my eating (and drinking) going a bit out of control. Somewhat of a free-for-all. Something I'm sure many of you can resonate with. I decided I needed to own it and do something about it. So, I…

What doesn't work?

We're currently weaning our 6-month old daughter. Alongside her staple milk diet, we're introducing new foods to her daily, and allowing her to feed herself (Baby led weaning).
