Reasons To Be Grateful #Thought4TheWeek -

Reasons To Be Grateful #Thought4TheWeek -

Well, we have had a heck of a few days this week…

Four reasons for me to be grateful...

Firstly after much soul-searching and late nights, we have launched a new way for our Family Business Practice members to retain their membership and we are delighted with the many kind words of encouragement and support we have received. Here is an example…

" As always your clear communication to explain how you are shaping Family Business activities to ensure you provide valuable support and engagement, as well as value for money, is really appreciated.

If you assume you operate for 44 out of the 52 weeks (Christmas and summer breaks) then what you are offering (£197/44 weeks = £4.48 per week) is less than buying 2 cups of coffee from a coffeehouse but still providing a real opportunity to engage and connect with a variety of businesses providing skills, products and services that we all benefit from knowing and working with."

Now that is simply a Great Family Business Value proposition!!"

High praise indeed and we are most grateful…

The second reason to be grateful is that my personal health hasn’t been so great in recent weeks, and I am delighted with the help and support from our local healthcare professionals – so kind, and most of all effective. In business, personal health is a priority and not something to be taken for granted.

The third reason is for the picture below.

Business Champion Innovation Thought Leader Highly Commended.

We attended the Annual Innovation Awards in Birmingham last Friday, a very prestigious affair with many of the great and the good from the area attending. We were delighted to have made it through to the finals. Whilst we didn’t win, we effectively came second with a special High Commendation Award which for a business like ours against some huge names was more than a win! Our thanks to Richard Fallon and all at the Technology Supply Chain for a great event.

Finally, whilst a sad day on Monday it was wonderful to see the country come together in support of the Royal Family a day none of us who were a part of or watched it will ever forget.

Sometimes we need to be reminded to be grateful for what we have…

How about you, what have you got to be grateful for today? Just take a moment and reflect… it will do wonders for you to appreciate what you really have your hands on!

Go on you know you want to!

Until the next time…
