When it comes to business and personal
values, it is often Integrity that is selected by most people on their list of
top 5. But if we look at what integrity is all about we find that it cannot be
a value on its own, it is the core of all your values. It describes how you
address your other values and how fast you recover from them once they have
been violated, this is your integrity.
Both myself and the business have signed up
for the Unashamedly Ethical pledge on their website. They offer ...

This week my daughter turned 4. She has now
come of age as a child and begun to master her world. She has friends, play
dates and a network to solve problems she faces each day. Her short term future
is clear and apart from a small chest infection she is really happy with life.
Her brain is in the process of making new discoveries and connections each day
and according to research she has already learnt half the things she will learn
in her entire life.
In this, the second part of our series
looking at the Consumer Protection Act, that comes into effect in October this

It is a new season either Spring or Fall,
depends on where you are. But a new season is a good time to do some change and
change comes with planning, and planning comes with goals. I encourage you,
know I challenge you, to take 30 minutes today and write out some of your most
important goals for the next 90 days. Use the following 5 headings as a guide if
you get stuck.
The consumer protection act comes into
effect in October this year. This act spells out all the rules of engagement in
the supply chain of both retail products and services industries. It affects
almost everything to do with the running of your small business. We will, over
the next couple of weeks try to understand as much of that act as we can, but

as I could, and that this is just an act and only becomes law once...
