It is a strong and irrational fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by others, leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, discomfort, self-consciousness and embarrassment. The anxiety can be so strong that it causes physical symptoms too, such as…Continue

When we give to charity, it generally leaves us with a positive feeling about ourselves, whether that is by donating money, our unwanted possessions or buying something from a charity shop. For this reason, it can be said that giving to charity is not an entirely unselfish act, and this is probably why the abuse scandals in UK charities have been so shocking. Ultimately we, the British public, as donors to charity have indirectly funded the abuse of the people we want to help, whether that…Continue

Be able to have a Drink

Working from home….It’s a bit of a Marmite issue in my mind. Personally, I love the buzz and energy an office can provide, but I admit there are occasions when working from home and having some calm and less of a journey is a joyful thing.
Last week I was speaking with a candidate who had just obtained a role where he could work from home four…Continue

Three things to bear in mind when considering this!
1. Do you need people to help your business be successful?
If the answer is yes, how do you find those people? How do you know if they can add value to your business? What is the best way to bring them on board to your business? Lots of questions but do you have the answer? Possibly not because the reasons that you started a business was to provide a…Continue

Having since met and worked with MyTeam members, together with recommendations from Keith for further networking around the community has proven invaluable. Meeting amazing business people doing great things,…Continue
