Travelling again – a quick riff on starting the week

My three weeks at home are complete and I’ll be on the 18:23 to Euston this evening in preparation for the first Extreme Business workshop of the year in London tomorrow : The Marketing Day.

Manchester and Dublin workshops follow on Wednesday and Friday, so by the end of the week I will have had the chance to meet with owners and managers from the 2019 cohort of clients, a prospect that fills me with excitement and anticipation for the difference we can make this year.

There will, no doubt, be many that have resolved to do something “extra” as the New Year starts and that is evident in the sharp increase in Extreme Weekly Tracker reports I have received over the last three days.

(For those who don’t know, we automatically email a link to our clients every week, that directs them to a web page where they can review the week past and ask for my help with current issues)

I have double the number of Tracker emails received in the weeks leading up to Christmas – it will be interesting to see how many stay the course on that.

New Year, new start and all that jazz.

At home, we are 14 days in to Dry January and embarrassed at how much better we are feeling (although the anticipated weight loss has still to happen as we clear a back-log of Christmas goodies – shame to waste).

My sojourn in The Barrow Bunker is over – back on the road again. I am really looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and making new friends.
