We’re going through strange times

Covid-19 has created some serious disruption, leaving us with a whole raft of different emotions and experiences, many of which change on a daily, if not hourly basis.

What’s great is to see how many resources there are out there to help us. But it can also be a bit overwhelming and hard to know where to start.

So don’t worry, I’m going to make it easy for you.


This is a space where I’m going to be pulling together a collection of what I think are some of the most helpful resources for small businesses at this time- articles, videos, top tips etc.

Some are by me, others are by those I rate highly.

I hope you find it helpful and if you have any suggestions of what we should include, I’d love to hear them.

I’ll be adding new things every few days.

Strategy House

Strategy house

If you’re taking this time to think about the longer term direction of your business, it might be good for you to revisit your strategy. Or if you’ve never made one, a good time to start.

This is my simple template for capturing your strategy on 1 page. It’s called a house strategy as, guess what, it’s designed to look like a house! On the download I give you explanations as to what goes into each part.

If you know your vision, mission, long term goals etc. already, then this will be a handy way for you to visualise them and keep them front of mind.

If you’ve never thought through these things before, this will be a good guide to what you should be considering. If you want some support working this through, then please get in touch.
