I need your help to make this happen

Friday, 21 April 2017

OK, I admit it. I've been distracted by paid assignments and haven't been as pushy as perhaps I might. But then there's a honest fact that pushing people into any purchase is simply not my style. So I'd like you to lend me a hand.

This book really needs to be written. The looming general election is going to cost more than £100m. What social impact will it have? What else could that money have…

Time is slipping away . . . . . . . . .

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

When faced with a challenge, too many folk simply ignore it and allow time to slip away. But that solves nothing, other than to make the challenge appear even bigger. It can happen to the best of us and I'm no exception.

But now that December is almost here, it's time to push this book from it's current resting place, just off the starting blocks, to the finish.Recent political events, together…

Reality can be both sobering, and inspiring

Saturday, 17 September 2016

I've recently been talking with organisations about pre-ordering bulk copies of this, my new book. It's shifted the pressure from hustling, to making a value based sales pitch. This sits far more comfortably with my personal values.

The fence is starting to creak, as more and more find themselves sitting on it. Instinct and common sense suggests that a box of books, together with me for a day,…

Nothing happens in life unless you make it happen

Tuesday, 30 August 2016

So the campaign is now 34 days old and my book is 6% of the way to success. 'That's not much', I hear you say, but of course it is August and I, as have many potential pledgers, have had a holiday. Now it's time to get down to some serious work!

You see crowdfunding is just like social enterprise. Nothing happens unless you are proactive, positive and I hate to admit, persistent. Just as those…

Anger is important - it drives you to act!

Saturday, 6 August 2016

You know the difference between us and so many is that we seize opportunity. It's why you've pledged to buy my book (for which I thank you again) and why you'll no doubt share the link and encourage others to pledge too.

The simple fact is that most people see injustice and need, say tut tut, and then carry on with what they were doing. For others, like me and perhaps you, it's impossible to simply…

Chapter list - what's inside the book

Sunday, 31 July 2016

I thought it might help you to see the full chapter list. It'll give you a flavour for where I'm going with the book. It will also help you ask challenging questions!. So after an introduction, there are 17 chapters, each containing three checklists of ten tips. So if my arithmetic is correct, that's 510 tips in total. (Put another way, if you pledge £20 it works out at less than 4p per tip!


We're off!

Thursday, 28 July 2016

Of all the books I've written, this is the most exciting. For one thing the guys at Unbound are really professional and enthusiastic, which of course helps, but best of all, it's my ability to talk with you, my readers, as I work on the book.

You'll see that you can ask me a question and see the answer appear in the book. That for me is the most powerful thing about this journey. Of course I'll…
