For women in business summer can be a challenging time. The oils of enterprise must keep churning but with the additional challenges, of children out of school. So here are a few tips to help, as a reminder for those who know & pointers for those that don’t.
Today I’m sharing my experiences, to help cash strapped, social media novices, micropreneurs & socialpreneurs, with a formula that works, at least for me!
Running a social enterprise, or as some call it a community interest company, without any major grants or funding is challenging. The decision to set – up shop, was always without the motivation to earn but rather to help, by bringing many years of international experience, in micro, small & medium enterprise, to those that could ill afford the benefits, of my consulting experience. It meant learning the ropes of social Continue reading

I’m bucking the trend by wishing you all a Happy Easter with a picture of the significance & theme of what it’s really about; Christ dying on the cross to save sinners & rising again from the dead on Sunday following!!
I’m not particularly religious but with all the silliness of the egg – rabbit thing, I thought some reflection/ meditation around selfless love, after Trump’s escalated bombing of Afghanistan, Syria & threatening North Korea, is perhaps a good thing. HAPPY EASTER.
Lest we forget, #Syria’s #chemical #weapons, was dismantled & destroyed under a UN supervised initiative, in 2014. If we must condemn, let’s condemn the US, UK; ‘Assad must go’ policy of supporting ‘moderate terrorists’. Not the Syrian government ‘aka -Assad regime’ for bombing the terrorists’ munitions depot, inside which were chemical weapons.
For all those that don’t know the direct cause of the famine in Somalia, is due to #global dimming. So if you’re tempted to think that “Blacks in Africa” are backward tribes, incapable of helping themselves & are living off the kind generousity of Whites; the fact is, it’s “Whites” directly responsible deaths we’re now witnessing. Millions have died thanks to “Whites” millions more will die thanks to “Whites”. If this seems offensive, remember its the truth. The truth has a way of offending people, this is the uncomfortable, its painful, its the real, inconvenient truth. Do donate, do campaign for food but really this is the crocodile tears, of the symptoms. What is required, is action NOW on global dimming Continue reading
“Business ethics is the interdisciplinary study of ethical issues and opportunities in business”. The importance of theory and practice in business ethics”.
Although the financial crises of 2008 was blamed mainly on the Lehman Brothers bank loans, to those that could ill afford it, with hindsight it is claimed, there was a multiplicity of reasons, across numerous agencies; banks, investors, countries and context. It appears the motivating factor was a combination of lapse governance and shear greed. Continue reading
For the last few months I have been reading with increasing sadness and trepidation the continued harassment, ethnic cleansing and murder of Moslem, Arab, Palestinian people of the Palestine. The history of the creation of these 2 states and the military occupation and annexation of the Palestinian State, is not the focus of this blog, rather it is the claim that Israeli State, which is in my view is a vicious rogue state ,with illegal nuclear weapons, apartheid system and atrocious human rights record, continues to claim that their inhumane behaviour, is driven their GOD given right to an eternal Jewish State, in the Middle – East. This is made worse by the support of this stance, by the fervour of US evangelists Continue reading
As a women engaging with the Middle East for the first time, I had many advisors, some knowledgeable others not but all well- meaning, about what I could expect, in what was described as a “moslem, misogynistic society”, thereby stereotyping & generalising; threatening to give me negative preconceptions that could lay the foundations of conflict.
