Small Business Saturday

It’s now only 3 weeks until this year’s Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-political, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first shopping Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.

All of my clients are small businesses, and in the UK as a whole 99% of businesses fall into the SME category.

This Prezi gives lots more information about Small Business Saturday: for example did you know that last year SME businesses contributed 47% of Private Sector employment in the UK?

Happy Shopping!

Summertime

Typical summer holidays! It is raining torrentially here as I am writing this.

During school holidays I don’t spend as much time at my clients’ sites. I used to say I don’t work as much, but what actually happens is that the work still needs to be done; I just have to fit it into early mornings and later evenings!

Polo Player
What I have been doing more of recently (while the weather was good) is watching polo.

This year Pound Lane Business Accounting is backing a polo team playing at Vaux Park Polo Club in Somerset. So far the record hasn’t been great (Won 1 Lost 2!!) but when the weather’s good it doesn’t matter so much to me.

They’ll need to improve their record if it keeps raining though!
