The Online Magazine Platform for Entrepreneurs, SME’s and Small Business Owners

This platform and it’s small business magazine were born out of the CoVid-19 crisis which swept the globe devastating the lives and the businesses of millions of people. Here in the UK we quickly realised that ‘help’ and ‘practical advice’ for entrepreneurs, small businesses, SME’s and their owners simply just wasn’t there, good enough or what was really needed.

SME and small business owners were at the mercy of a mass media that didn’t understand what advice was really needed to help.

It simply wasn’t good enough…and our platform is here to help grow, build, rebuild, market, rebrand and manage the amazing small businesses, SME’s and entrepreneurs everywhere.

Loneliness For Business Owners – a Silent Killer?

Being self employed and running your own business can be one pf the greatest thing you can do for yourself and your family in your life. It can open so many doors, so many opportunities and lead to a legacy that your friends, family and customers will benefit for years to come.

But it’s also one of the loneliest places on earth too. The hours that we work, the time away from people, the pressure that we and our customers put ourselves under, the financial pressures and what with one thing and another, (i.e. global pandemic), for some there have been bigger consequences that have been born out of our need to work from home and our continuous lockdowns that have left many of us staring at the same four walls in house that used to be haven and now is more of a prison.
