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.

As I write this post it is the start of Social Media Week, a Global event that spans over 20 cities and around 1000 events… I will come back to this in a minute or so. I have now been ‘employable’ for around 7 months, and in that time myself and my ‘employable’ Co Founder […]

BuyMyFace was born. Imagine going along to your Mum and Dad, after 3 years of University […]

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 […]
