17th May 2016 I love reading books about real-life experiences. Whether it’s my macabre interest in criminology through to self-help paperbacks, biographies and autobiographies I love a good read. However my latest business-topic hardback took me way out of my comfort zone, but in a masochistically enjoyable way I (sort-of) enjoyed it. ‘Business for Punks’ [...]

4th January 2016   I do it every year.
