Ahhhhh No Internet access

Since last Thursday we have had no broadband!!! How did the world function before the internet??? Anyway as you can imagine it’s been a bit awkward but hey ho. Having to connect via my iphone has been slow going but better than nothing. In all seriousness though I have not missed it as much as I thought, and I’ve also been reading a lot more books so that’s a positive. It has however put my eBook back a bit but that can’t be helped, so my apologies but it’s almost done and won’t be much longer.

If you’re wondering how or why I have no broadband here’s the story… About 10 days ago a package from BT turned up with a router and Freeview box in it but addressed to someone we had never heard of. I kept it right by the front door fully expecting it to be collected as it was obviously an error because we are with Sky… Anyhow, Thursday evening the connection went down and was still down on Friday morning so after contacting Sky they told me that I had decided to leave them for BT and that BT have taken over the line so I need to contact them. So I contacted BT but they said I needed to contact Sky because they should have notified me I was leaving! But BT did admit that someone had placed an order and given our address so it was their fault and not BT’s!!! After all that, we had to place a new order with Sky and everything will be back to normal in about 10 days! It’s driving my partner nutty…

So last Friday I was at the business start-up show in London; the show itself was great if you were indeed new to business, in fact I evenVincesemlondon 007 found myself offering some of the exhibitor’s basic advice on occasion. But as I said if you are newbie budding entrepreneur it was a great place to start off and there was a great buzz around the place. Vince Stanziones 1hr session was packed, there were people sat on the floor in the isles because all the seats were taken as was the standing room. Vince recognised me and waved over and I felt a bit big headed in a funny sort of way… The speech he gave was how to start a business cheaply and it went down well, loads of people were getting their books signed and having their photos taken. I had a quick chat with Vince and got the quick run-down on the US shares market [they are still hot] and told him I was still long on some of the positions he gave us at his own London seminar, he agreed and said that he was.

Overall a great day out and good to see that the new business arena is buzzing again with people’s optimism…
