I’ve just typed laptop into my Google photos account and this is the result. Why’s this important? Well some of the photos of my laptop above (I realise there are a few duplicates) I took whilst travelling the world, but in each photo, I was working. I have decided to document places that I’ve opened my laptop and worked remotely,…

On a recent trip to California I ventured into Ventura, a small surfer’s town just north of Los Angeles. Aside from being quintessentially surf-orientated (some of California’s best surf breaks are within a few miles), Ventura is also home to my favourite company in the world, Patagonia. I realise this is a bold statement, but there are fewer companies in…

I had an early flight to catch to Oslo, then a connecting flight north to Alta.

Essential Online Tools for Small Businesses - Part 2: Images I’d like to think that I know something about my strengths and weaknesses. It is all too easy to become overwhelmed with wearing every hat within your business and it is truly difficult to sometimes get over yourself and take a step back from every process involved.

Essential Online Tools for Small Businesses - Part 1 When I started my first business, I was told by many online gurus that growing and managing your list correctly is absolutely essential. At that time, I didn’t even know what a list was, but I have since realised that the value of many businesses is entirely based upon their list…
