Launching The MORE Mastermind with Victoria Casebourne

I’ve been talking for sometime about a couple of joint ventures I’ve been co-crafting, and finally I am able to go live and announce that I am happy to be working in a project called The MORE Mastermind with its creator, Victoria Casebourne. Victoria and I met via a Facebook group. She’s a mum with two small children and she was already pretty much sold on the idea of working school hours in term time only.

What Can We Learn From Playing Games?

My best friend from school, Leslie Scott, invented Jenga.   You have probably played it, you will almost certainly have heard about it.   I was Leslie’s accountant and you can read that story in Leslie’s book called About Jenga.

Meals With Millionaires (2)

Last week I had lunch with Neil Asher.   Neil is a self-made, international multi-millionaire with seven businesses in five countries.   He looks like David Bowie and he looks considerably younger than me, so he must be doing something right. Neil and I had never met before but we had enjoyed a few phone calls towards the end of last year.   He wanted some advice and one of my business partners put him in touch.   He turned out to be funny and charming and abundant. He said and did a couple of things and I have his permission to share the […]
