Today in one of our catch ups I said something along the lines of “I’m not joking – turn off the notifications”. I was dead serious. It was no “do-what-you-think-is-best” suggestion. It was a direct order, to put it bluntly.
Ploughing on is easy. You make progress. You produce things. You know the path. You continue, as you were. But it is darn dangerous.
Monday evening this week I spent on a plane. Tuesday evening in a hotel working. Wednesday evening was in an airport and on a plane and tonight I’ve been teaching. I’m a little bit tired. Quite hungry, but more than anything I’m feeling really happy.
I’ve been to airports and flown every day of February so far. It’s only 3 days, but still.
Today is my mum’s birthday and I’ve taken the day off to spend it with her back home. Sure, there is work to be done, but nothing that is so important that it can’t wait. Today is a special day and I’m spending it with a special person.
Just under half of the work force in the UK suffers from high stress levels and 48% of all senior managers expressed they are stressed most or nearly all of the time. Just how much that comes from work and what comes from personal circumstances, or a combination, is hard to say, but there is
As I’ve mentioned a few times, there are number of ways that we could take Glimt.it in this year and I wanted to get the teams unbiased view when we came back from the Christmas break, so one of the things I did was send them the link to the Seedcamp platform page and asked
There are quite a lot that runs through your head when you consider taking on investment. It’s not a decision I believe should be taken lightly. As with all major decisions in life, if we go down that route, it changes things. Much for the better and some probably for the worse.
Starting to blog was quite a nervous happening for me. I worried what people may think of who I thought I was. But I did it and I really enjoyed it. Then I started the Day to day project and the nervousness came back. Tweeting a link to my post every day was the part
Since we found out we were selected to pitch, I’ve found myself getting more and more excited about what this next chapter brings. Today I’ve spent most of my day connecting with people, those I met at the pitch event and also others over the years.
Back in the summer of 2014 I wrote a post for Entrepreneur Academe about the value of being part of a network like Entrepreneur Academe where you meet fellow founders and have access to mentors.
Tonight we pitched at Match Capital’s marketplace pitch event over at WeWork Spitafields. We were up as number 5 of 8 and from the feedback we got, it went well.
Today I’ve been head and knee deep into our financial forecast for the next 18 months. That brings us to July 2017. Quite a long time away and yet, not really that far away at all.

This morning I sat down on one of the priority seats on the tube. Opposite me sat a woman with a ‘baby on board’ badge. On the other side of the pole in the middle of the section I was in, I saw another woman. She also had a ‘Baby on board’ badge and I’m
For my second job in London I chose between a role that mixed project management and information architecture (IA), as we referred to it back then, and pure IA roles. I chose the latter.
Tonight we watched The Martian in the cinema and there is one scene where Matt Damon talks about that all you have to do is tackle one problem at the time. Once you’ve fixed one, you can fix the next and so on.
