What crazy times we all live in. Never has there been a greater driver for us to come together to show support for our colleagues, friends, family, loved ones and those in need. I've reached out to my network and these fabulous and very generous people are all offering their services for free. All told, these offers amount to thousands of pounds worth of work: between us we are offering free business strategy, social media strategy, PR/Press, SEO and personal development. Everything here is gratis - no charge - donated to help business owners overcome challenges as a result of the current economic climate. Huge thanks to Kerry, Kat, Adam and Sal for getting this ready so fast. There will be more offers coming in - but this is what we rustled up this week. Feel free to share far and wide - with anyone you feel may benefit. Stay strong people. One love.

Thursday 2 April 2020 - we've moved my free Pocket Business School online this month for obvious reasons. Register here (did I mention it's free) and I'll kick out a Zoom meeting invite at the start of April so that you can attend our online webinar.
