Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas*

One of the goals I have set for myself while I spend some time at the beach is to get (finally) a first draft of a novel out. I’ve had a few cracks at it in the past but never gotten further than about 10,000 words on 5 different ideas. …

A Final Apology, the Gift of Forgiveness and Letting Go

It has been 7 years since the GFC hit, decimating many people’s investments, including about 3,000 of my 14,000 odd clients.  It created difficult times for some.   And I apologise, without reservation for the role that I or my companies…
