Charlotte: The Man that Changed my Life...

Suggesting my life has been changed by a man is not something people who know me would expect to say. Don't get to excited I am not getting married or anything! I actually haven't even met this man, its an online relationship type thing... Being on medical leave for the last 2 months (all is well -- I had a hip op) I did manage to stop myself slipping into the day to day running of our businesses too much, which left me with some time to do other stuff. There is so much to get through in a...

Thoughts From Our Leader...

So the rain has returned to Scotland which means summer is very much over (not that I am sure it ever started). Over the summer holidays I took some much needed time off from Mint (which I am not very good at but it is a must when you run a business and have children) and discovered one of the upsides is that it gives me time to read, which in turn gets me thinking about the business. I read through loads of books this summer one being 500 Social Media Marketing Tips, an e-book by Andrew Macarth...
