Every Business I Have Started That Failed

I have a had a few successful businesses. I’ve created a successful sporting goods brand, built and sold a tech startup, and started a popular coffee shop. But those are the odd ones out. I have failed at far more businesses than I have succeeded at. I don’t regret any of the failures. They took up thousands of hours and cost lots of... Read more

Be Ready For Anything – Surviving The Turmoil Of Post-Brexit Britain

The Digital Renaissance and The Modern Polymath

We live in a world on specialties. “What do you do?” or “what did you study?” is the opening line of thousands of conversations around the world.

18-Month Blog Earning Report

The blog has now been going 18 months. Mental! I’ve written over 50 posts, spent countless hours on it and had over 250,000 visitors. What fun. But more excitingly, the blog has started to become a decent income source. At the one-year point, the blog had made a total of £1,124.04. Not a lot, and certainly not worth the time... Read more

What I Learnt Spending a Year Getting Beaten Up

How To Start An Amazon FBA Business

I have been selling online through an Amazon FBA business since 2013, but I haven’t really spoken about it much on this blog. I hesitate because to a reader I think it sounds too easy. There are a lot of the articles written about Amazon FBA and they too often just like a scammy get-rich-quick scheme. The logic is simple... Read more
