A team effort

Last November I went to see prospective clients on a site near Cheltenham, and knew straightaway that this project was one that I very much wanted to be involved with.

The big windows gave great views out onto the garden, and the clients were keen to really transform the currently uninspiring garden.…

A Designer At Work: Time Management Techniques

Everybody has their own way of working and I’m no different, but as small business owners we often need to do many different jobs in one day – the types of jobs that larger companies have entire departments for: so there is a need to optimise time and focus on efficiency.

 

I am primarily a designer and I don’t know about you but my brain certainly behaves a little bit like a computer running on low RAM: too many applications running at once and ideas take a long time to load. …

R.E.D Equipment is Must Choice for Any Artificial Surface Maintenance

A programme of routine maintenance is essential to preserving the playing qualities of a synthetic sports surface. A key benefit of artificial turf is its capacity to support usage levels far greater than a natural grass pitch could ever withstand, especially in winter or prolonged rain periods, and regular care and attention is required throughout the life of a synthetic surface to achieve this.…

Which Fruit Trees Should I Grow? A Beginner's Introduction

I want to grow some fruit trees, but where do I start? I don't understand pollination groups or rootstocks, or the difference between a stepover and a cordon and a maiden and a bush. Help!



It's a familiar cry. Folk quickly get bogged down when they're shopping for fruit trees, as there are so many varieties and options open to them if they want to do things properly, rather than nip down to the nearest B&Q and end up with the wrong plant. I'm faced…

The S Factor.

People tell me I am still young... but I don't feel it.

Last year was brutal on a personal level, the year before was bad too and 2011 I had hoped would be an improvement, things would be simpler.  It has been far from that.

It is of course inevitable that personal events have a consequence on business matters, and my case is no different.  This creates a great deal of upfront stress. An eternal buzz of adrenaline.  Churning bowels. Twitching eye.

Then of course there is…

The Financial Health Of Your Business

Just how healthy are the finances of your business? 

Obviously we complete tax returns each year and hopefully we monitor progress through the year but this generally focuses on turnover, expenses and profit.  It doesn't explain how financially healthy your business is. 

I attended a Business Link Planning for Growth Course; they introduced some calculations you can run to determine the financial health of your business and l felt it would benefit other LJN…
