Starting your own business is a personal journey you take that makes you question who you are and what you are doing it for. We all question out decisions and tend to overthink our intentions, but I believe that if you follow these five mantras, you can achieve great things for you and your business.
Deano, Deano, Deano, oh sorry, you caught me daydreaming about singing at Wembley Arena. Right, back to audition show Four. White van driver Shelley Smith was up first, good start, not my cup of tea, but I can't knock the vocal ability and the energy. An audience pleaser. See you at bootcamp.
Well done to the producers for giving us a fantastic opening weekend of the X Factor. It was entertaining, the judges were fun and most of all the talent was smoking. Oh, and not bad ratings either. So after last week's immense talent, whose up first...
For those of you unfamiliar with the name Luisa Zissman, you are unfamiliar with the current British celebrity hierarchy. Zissman has entered the party with immediate B/C list status. Her role as runner up on The Apprentice has effectively launched her 'it' girl status. Hardly a day passes without an update on her life by the British tabloids. And I for one- am pleased.
Ever tried to keep a Channel 4 20-part double commission afloat without offending everyone or killing multiple businesswoman and mum of four Sarah Beeny? Well, it's proving more and more difficult by the day. Right now we are filming, editing and transmitting Double Your House for Half the Money...
Once you throw beauty, confidence and being self-assured into the mix, women almost have no hope for sympathy. And it is something that continues to exasperate and frustrate the hell out of me. It baffles me how women in particular sided with Daley and painted Hazel as some kind of scarlet woman.
During our ridiculous and silly three months on the road filming; we managed to convince people that the government had brought in guide pigs for the blind due to a shortage of dogs; that amputees in third world countries were being forced to have monkey arms sewn on; that dwarves run around punching cupcakes...
The first episode of Series 11 of Dragons' Den aired on Sunday and I have to admit that I was at the edge of my seat watching the start. It was that mix of excitement and nervousness, wondering how I'd be perceived as one of the newest Dragons.
Havers is famous for caddish roles on TV and seemed delighted to make the link with his own great-great-grandfather at the expense of historical fact: "He just couldn't resist it," he states, "bit of a cad really, I've been playing those sort of parts for years."
Intelligence is a funny thing, isn't it? After re-watching the whole four series of Cougar Town in one weekend, it dawned on me that I'm not as clever as I'd like to be. Nor am I as inclined to learn about 'intellectual' things as I'd like.
For the first time this series, I'm genuinely gutted with this week's eviction outcome. Another twist that took place last week has essentially backfired again, leading to the eviction of the alpha-male in the house.
We're told reality TV is reality, but it's as scripted and manufactured as any episode of True Blood or Dexter or Mad Men. Except nowhere near as good. Those shows have vampires, serial killers and far better looking people. Watch them instead.
Over 80,000 people have registered, and paid a deposit, to express their interest in being part of a reality TV programme that aims to send a small number of people to Mars to establish the first colony there.
Soul singer and songwriter Adenikè, who you might recognise as the Judges 'regrettable rejection' from the current season of BBC's The Voice UK is set to unveil her brand new single titled 'I Stayed' which is due to be released on June 10 this year.
I like the opening five minutes of The Apprentice the best I think. Mainly because of the contestants' VTs; which this year contained some very bold and arousing statements. "I am a great of my generation. I take inspiration from Napoleon," so says a small man wearing ladies sunglasses.
As early as midway through the first episode we gain an appreciation of whom we are going to collectively despise. It is normally the irritating cretin who takes it upon him/herself to come up with a team name such as 'oblivion' or 'evolve.' Why they feel compelled to come up with such lame post-apocalyptic names is beyond me.
