Happy xmas

Just a quick letter to say Happy Xmas to all my readers and followers. Hope you have a good one. So far I've been very good in the past few weeks, I've been eating better than I do normally, and I've been trying to keep a good schedule of things to do over the next few days. Hope you have a great xmas. David

Re-orientation

We've decided to re-direct our translation company, so that we spend more time and resources on sales, and less on other things. We expect to change the entire culture of the company, from supporting and producing the good work (which we have now internalized) to focusing on getting more clients through the door. Hopefully this change won't be too traumatic for us and we'll adapt and grow.

Growth Accelerator

I've joined a government run scheme called the "Growth Accelerator". The idea of the scheme is to help smaller, newer business like mine develop and grow. After some qualifying questions, I was able to join the scheme. The first step was to select a "mentor" who will help me guide the business over the coming weeks. I had my first meeting with my new mentor yesterday. We talked about my vision for the company, and my idea of what we can offer to our clients. We also discussed different ways of presenting ourselves to our clients and target market. Overall, so far the experience has been good. I'll keep posting here as things develop! David

Visit to Syon Park

It's getting close to Christmas, so I decided to visit the Christmas gardens at Syon Park. They have lit the park nicely, with many hidden light shows, music, and other effects scattered around the 1.5 mile route.

It was a bit cold, but the walk was pleasant, and I certainly enjoyed it.
