City Greenhouse Kits

April 28th, 2009 » Comments (3)

Over the last couple of months I’ve been experimenting with growing my own fruit, vegetables and salad. It turns out I’m pretty good with lettuce – we’re now eating it with more or less every meal – but not so good with strawberries. We’re still waiting to see how everything else does. I’m not really […]



Indestructible Dog Toys

March 26th, 2009 » Comments (1)

The picture on the right is of our dog, Otis (named after Otis Reading, not the company that makes lifts). He’s a boxer, and at the time of the photo was only four months old. He’s now approaching three years old, but still just as cute, curious and energetic. We’ve had him since he was […]



Become A Personal Trainer

March 23rd, 2009 » Comments (0)

Now that I’m a regular gym rat I’ve started quizzing the personal trainers in the gym about their businesses – I just can’t help myself I quiz everyone I meet about their business! I was surprised to find that even personal instructors in a small sleepy Wiltshire town can charge up to £65 per hour. […]

Olive Oil For Life, Or Just For A Living?

March 6th, 2009 » Comments (1)

Three years ago we decided that we’d had enough of the seemingly endless bad weather and the constant stream of bills through the door in the UK that took so much pleasure out of life. Our kids had grown up and fled the nest. It was now or never! After the most traumatic of life […]



Recession Proof Business Opportunities

February 26th, 2009 » Comments (2)

Unless you’ve made a stoic effort over the last eighteen months to avoid being exposed to the news you are sure to have noticed that the banks have managed to get themselves into rather a pickle, creating the credit crunch, which has helped fuel a global slowdown leading us all into a recession. As a […]



Start A Bookkeeping Business

February 13th, 2009 » Comments (5)

If you’ve a head for numbers, have some bookkeeping or accounting experience, or even if you’re a part (or fully) qualified accountant who is looking to go it alone, then starting a bookkeeping business might be just the business opportunity for you. Doing the bookkeeping for a small business is not something that most entrepreneurs […]



Looking For Work Or A Change of Direction? Why Not Become An Entrepreneur?

January 26th, 2009 » Comments (2)

Great Britain has always been known as ‘nation of shopkeepers’. The current economic depression has seen 2 million people out of work and there is the strong possibility that this will increase to 3 million in the not too distant future. With over 30,000 businesses for sale in the UK it would be nice if […]



Skipping For Fitness

January 15th, 2009 » Comments (0)

The more I read and research about fitness (I just can’t do anything without reading as much as I can about the subject) the more and more business opportunities and ideas I come across. Previously I wrote about opening a gym and the hundred pushups website. Today it’s skipping for fitness. I have to admit […]



Opening A Gym

January 12th, 2009 » Comments (21)

Recently I’ve decided to sort out my fitness and get back into a regular gym routine. So I’ve started looking around the local gyms to find one that suits my needs. What struck me almost immediately however was the poor standard of many (small, old, dirty (hygiene-wise, I don’t mind spit and sawdust type gyms) […]
