Being proud of being unemployed – Diary of a Employable Blogaholic

Being Proud of being unemployed. Last night was my ‘bi-annual’ trip to the bar! Maybe a slight exaggeration, but nevertheless, I am not a seasoned drinker.

Diary of an Unemployed Blogaholic – Robinson Crusoe was an Entrepreneur

Note to Editor. Okay, I know I am pushing it with this title. But it came to me in a moment of epiphany and once I had it in my head, that was that… (Don’t worry, I will go on to explain my analogy later in the post) Two days earlier… Driving down to Bizcamp […]

Diary of an Unemployed Blogaholic – flying at 30,000 feet…

I was on my way to Wales via Easyjet. Flying at 30,000 feet, with nothing to do but look out at the  clouds, helps you to daydream. Now I have been accused of having my head in the clouds anyway, but looking out at the sky at 30,000 feet, does help you to focus on […]
