Small business support & last chance to win an inspirational book

Newsletter Add comments
If you only want to pay professionals who other people rave about, then you’re in the right place. CertainShops – professionals online. The certain way of doing business.

In this issue: going to the ball; resources for small business; free tickets to share with your staff/clients


Running a small business from home can be lonely at times.  When I found myself deliberately dropping a glove in the high street just so someone would say “excuse me” and a short interaction would ensue, I realised something had to be done. Fast.

Thank goodness for CertainShops.  I huddled in a corner of an internet cafe and went online: within minutes I had booked a free 15 minute consultation with a Feng Shui practitioner who could help make my home less cluttered and encourage visitors, and while she’s at it she’s going to help me declutter my office as well.  I inquired about having a party organised with a fluffy pink cocktail bar hired in for extra fun, and booked in for some motivational inspirational coaching sessions for good measure.

By the time Spring arrives and I don’t need to wear gloves anymore, I will no longer need to resort to the ‘fair weather’ ploy of ‘accidentally’ losing my right shoe – “Excuse me…….”

Sign our petition:

My daughter Cyd wants to support other children (she’s 13) whose parents are going through break up or divorce, and has started a petition to encourage Government to change the divorce laws and to actively support less combative ways of break up.

Cyd hopes to be at both live SOS events (we need to check her dad’s ok with this first!) gathering signatures.  You can sign the petition now online here:

Break up right – please don’t fight!
