The Apprentice Week 6 – A View From The Cheese Shop

Just like with the the ping pong a few weeks ago, the cameras again just happened to be rolling during the remaining candidates ‘fun time’ of playing the Wii, or xBox… or something.

Yep, me too, and in hindsight, I wish I had had the ‘chicken balls’ to hop straight out of […]

Funniest Business Cards Ever? Or Perhaps The Most Creative!

When you are first setting up a business, one of the first promotional activities often undertaken is getting a business card printed. It is considered a given that if asked for your card, you will be able to produce one. And when you hand it over to that potential new client or customer you want […]
