Episode 6: 8th February 2018

It’s time for Episode 6 and we kicked off the show with a mini-teach on how to read the financial pages – a skill that Heather mastered in spite of the instructions being 15 years old! The dusty old book we referred to in this section is How To Read the Financial Pages by Michael Brett – if you follow this link to Amazon you’ll find that it takes you to a more up to date version that the one that Tracy owns!

Events featured today are:

The telephone number for the HMRC’s Business Payment Support Service is 0300 200 2835 if you are having problems paying VAT, income tax, corporate tax, NI, PAYE etc.

Tracy talked about her experience at an ACAS workshop on contracts of employment last week and if you are interested to find out more here is the link to other courses that ACAS offer.

We also announced that we will be trialling the save-for-later apps Pocket and Google Keep to organise our ideas and inspiration in advance of prepping for this show. We will report back in a few weeks.

Guru of the week is Stephen Covey, the author of Heather’s first ever self-help book. The books of his that we discussed were The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Speed of Trust and The 3rd Alternative.

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”

“Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.”
