The Innovation Revolution


If you look at the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list of SMEs from 2001 you may find something rather shocking - 53% of the stars of the last 10 year are no longer here.

The VA Black Book - Think Specificity and Recommendation

As a small business owner or entrepreneur you know that it makes sense to outsource, rather than hiring on a full-time basis with all the baggage that entails.

You probably have a number of different tasks that you’re looking to outsource and these may change from week to week, or month to month. You know that you should outsource if to want to find the best possible service providers, but obviously you don’t want a lot of hassle along the way.

At this point in time you…

Are your website colours helping or hurting?

When planning out a website, businesses usually want to go with colours and designs that go with their established or revitalised brand.

One simple decision that saves you time and makes you more effective

Stick to what you know – it’s a key lesson for every business person and yet it's one that is ignored more than most.

What makes you successful is the drive and enthusiasm for what you do. Plus the knowledge you’ve gained and the experience you’ve picked up along the way.

The moment you attempt to engage in a task that holds no interest and for which…

New profile features for Twitter

It’s here! The new and improved Twitter profile pages. Taking a page from the Facebook tome of Social Media innovations, Twitter has launched new user profile pages. They have a few features beyond the nice new cover image (which looks much better than the limiting small block of the old profiles).…

Do You Fail More Than You Succeed?

Do you focus on failures? Or on successes? Are you accidentally planning to fail?

Often I find people being unhappy about all the things at which they’re failing. They’re asking for my advice and help about how to turn the situation around. And knowing how reluctant most people are to ask for help, you can imagine how long they’ve been trying on their own!

How to make a success of buy-to-let investments in Berkshire

How to make a success of buy-to-let investments in Berkshire

Buy-to-let investments have had a relatively tough time over the last few years, but the green shoots of economic recovery in Berkshire and throughout the south east means this is an excellent time to get involved. The housing market in this region of England is fuelling a national recovery, so it is the ideal location if you are looking for a relatively low-risk buy-to-let opportunity. However, before making such…

How to Create a Top Notch E-commerce Home Page

There’s much more to a successful e-commerce store than just a slick design. You want to capture your visitors, entice them into the site and make their experience as pleasurable as possible.

What's your time worth?

For every person in every business, they perform a mixture of tasks; Some tasks are worth very little and some tasks are worth a very high value. I often ask a business owner “How much is your time worth per hour to the company when you are doing the most valuable work?”. Almost no one ever knows the answer.

Often, as we grow and develop a business and our own…
