Winter cleaning and tidying suggestions for January

Winter cleaning and tidying suggestions for January

Things can somehow seem messier, dirtier and less organised during the winter months.  But, now we are a few weeks into January, we can no longer use the phrases -‘It’s Christmas’, ‘it’s the school holidays’, ‘it’s the party season’ as excuses to have a messy and dirty home!

The time has come to get organised with…

It's my precious!


One of the very great pleasures of the Xmas and New Year holiday is being able to do things that you don’t normally have time to do – such as watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy … and we did!

Not only are they great stories, with fabulous cinematography filmed in stunning locations, but there are also some great lessons within the movies.

Gollum (or Smeagol) is absolutely focused on his Precious – no effort is wasted and nothing can deter him from his single…

A man's got to know his limitations!

There's a moment at the end of the 1973 Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force, when Harry Callahan (played by Clint Eastwood) has just dispatched Briggs, the last bad guy, and he says, "A man's got to know his limitations"

It's a great line delivered by a great actor. The movie message was that people can often over-estimate their capabilities.

However, from a business perspective, it can often feel…

The Cyber threat

You don’t buy Fire insurance because you expect a fire or Theft insurance because you are expecting to be robbed

So why don’t you buy Cyber Insurance when everyone around is being hacked or infiltrated by viruses and threats of attack?

Buying the cover will not make you immune from attack and it will not encourage attack or promote the ongoing rise in…

Camberley Band Christmas caroling raises over £700 for local charities

It’s been a busy month for Camberley and District Silver Band, with a number of caroling opportunities all around the region.

Our many thanks go out to all of the kind shoppers of Camberley, Fleet and Aldershot who between them donated over £700 to the band’s fundraising! This money will be split between the band, which is a registered charity, and the Frimley Park Hospital.
The band's next performance will be in 2017, at a Supper Concert hosted at Crowthorne Methodist…

Avoid toxic cleansers – use natural cleaners

There is a commercial product for practically every type of cleaning job available on this planet. From laundry detergents, soaps, to stain removers etc.

Anyone can just go to the grocery shop or their local chemist and buy a solution for any household problem. Most of these materials go the extra mile in providing you fresh and thoroughly cleaned clothes, cushions, floors and everything from top to bottom in the house. True enough, maintaining a home is done faster…

Office cleaning – points to remember when planning one!

An office is a place where you interact with different people on a day-to-day basis. Clients and co-workers come and go, bringing along with them not just business but also the dirt, dust and grime from the outside environment. It’s easy to spread germs and illness-causing bacteria all over the place because of the building’s shared air ducts. Aside from this, a grimy office is not a good sign of business and might turn off current and future investors! 

This is why office sanitation…

Holistic Health

Apparently cancer is caused by the body having to combat the amount of acid that is contained in it.

If a person can eat well, (majority fruit and veg) drink lots of water (preferably mineral) and reduce stress and take (at least) small amounts of regular exercise, then the risks of disease are considerably lowered.  This isn't a new concept but (I think) still a hugely overlooked 'lifestyle' choice that most of us could do something about at any moment. 

The emphasise on…

Business Cards - Game Over?

In an increasingly digital world, it is easy to think that business cards are nearing the end of their usefulness.  Not so.  However, to make them work for you there are some overlooked principles which need to be considered:



The design and quality of your cards will speak volumes about you as a person and how you do business.  Doing them well may cost more, but a well designed card (which should match…

Want to grow your business? Plan a bank raid!

Want to grow your business, but are not very clear about how to do it?

Do you remember why you went into business in the first place?

  • You had a passion for what you do and you wanted freedom to be master of your own destiny
  • to earn a good living
  • to be able to work the hours you wanted to
  • less stress than you had before

How many of the above have you ticked as…

Living in the NOW......

Have you come across suggestions about living in the NOW? If you think about it from a physical perspective it’s the only feasible place to be.

If you think about it from a mental or mind made perspective that might be trickier! To throw a cog into the cognitive, maybe making those two perspectives different from each other might even be where problems arise. What does that even mean???

Cause and Effect

Here's a funny story and it's true. It's a story that might provoke some thinking regarding perspective and apportioning responsibility for self!  Enjoy.......

I’m sitting on a stool next to John Grinder and we are chatting. Suddenly an old friend of his rushes over to say hello and he politely turns his attention to his friend. I sit patiently next to him relaxed and with my legs crossed left over right. John (for some reason) smacks me hard on the knee and involuntarily my knee…

There's more to the perfect employee than their ability to do the job

Whilst the likes of Richard Branson (Virgin) and Sheryl Sandburg (Facebook) operate in a different universe from small business owners, the issue of making sure you take on the right person for the job remains the same whether you run a multinational conglomerate out of Necker or run a two person business from Dorking.

It may be less damaging to make a poor…

The power of positive language

Recently I heard a local school's Head teacher tell a child that she (the child) had failed a task because she (the child) had forgotten about a deadline and that she (the head) would have to get someone else to do the job!

I physically reeled as I processed what I was seeing and hearing. The presuppositions of NLP assume that ‘there is no failure only feedback.’

You could go further with positive language and instead of saying ‘no failure’ you could say that…
