Networking ……. BoB Clubs

Having known Geoff Cox for many years, I eventually became involved in Bob Clubs just over two months ago, directly supporting a new local group here in Sutton, Surrey. It also has international groups too.

There is some serious investment going on with SEO; so it is well up to speed in helping you grow your business and contacts.

The Sutton group is very close to launch now, and following three meetings, it is certainly moving in the right direction. Even in its infancy I have picked up business, so know that networking continues to work in every which way.

One off registration fee of £95 + Vat, followed by annual £295 + Vat, only payable when the group officially goes live. Meeting fee, every two weeks, just £10, and very traditional 7am start.

Future dates as follows:

Tuesday 9 November
Tuesday 23 November
Tuesday 7 December

Would you like to attend or at least find out about whether your discipline is still available? If so, please drop me a line to my email – address under contact tab, or leave a message here?



Mothers returning to work settle for pay cuts …..

It appears the idea of motherhood is not sitting well with those who return to work seeking suitable part time work.

There are reports of mothers taking low-skilled and poorly paid employment, simply to find a job to work around chilcare on a part time basis.

And this could well get worse with the proposed cuts in child benefit.

Perhaps many mothers should look to start their own business, where they can work the hours that suit the family needs?

One such company is Utility Warehouse, where full and ongoing training can set up a mother for life with an increasing income, and build in total flexibilty to suit their needs; there is even offer of a car as well, which could well help with the family buget too.

Details here:

There are country wide presentations and training centres available to new joinees and existing team members.

Further use of the CashBack card, especially with Mothercare, Boots and Toys R Us, amongst the partner stores, will make any income earned go further.

A total win-win for any mother.

MVNO ceases trading

One of the recent supposed success stories have been MVNO companies such as Lebara and similar.

However, all is not well within the mobile phone world.

Word reaches us that Global Cell, which offered East European users based in the UK a great deal has ceased trading.

Interestingly, Lebara shareholders, owned GlobalCell.

Is there a potential warning here of things not being so rosy within the MVNO model?

Tesco ClubCard trims offers

It seems there are going to be reductions in the value of points earned.

They are also reducing the value of vouchers by a quarter too. For example 100 points presently earns a £4 voucher, from the 6 December, that falls to £3.

And there are more changes planned.

Perhaps time to look elsewhere?

Utility Warehouse members receive 5% through their CashBack card, which can be earned through almost 40 High Street shops and over 1500 stores online. Details here: and click CashBack card top right hand side of page
