Be the Envy of Your Mates with a Pool Table

26/01/2016 Main

Hello guys, it’s Horatio once more. Apologies for the lack of action for a while, you know how it is, Christmas vacations and all that jazz! Had a very good festive period though. Lots of champagne and talks about how we are going to make this year one of the best yet with our businesses. This entry is a little different though however because one of my colleagues/friends received a gift that made me rather jealous indeed. A Pool table! One of those big American style ones with the huge pockets. I used to play a fair bit when I was younger but just don’t have the time now, but would be nice to come home on the odd occasion and relax whilst hitting some pool balls!

British businesses and e-commerce

British businesses and e-commerce

According to new studies, e-commerce channels are gaining importance across UK Businesses. The study of B2C and B2B businesses in the UK shows that digital channels now account for around 41% of luxury revenues compared to retail channels which account for approx. 26% of income. It is not just e-commerce that is seeing this rise, mobile commerce is too witnessing growth with luxury spearheading the development. This however still sees challenges as it is not straightforward introducing e-commerce into older more traditional sales channels. The management of distribution and handling the customer service side of things are some of the obvious barriers which need to be overcome if you are to integrate successfully. Read more

Commerce buys good Campervans!

30/11/2015 Main

 

Hello again. This entry is a little off-topic but I've recently purchased an amazing new VW Campervan, and thought it apt to write a little bit about campervans and touring the UK and Ireland. It doesn’t sound exciting to a lot of people but there are some amazing holidays to be had in the UK and Ireland, touring around in your campervan. Great for couples (who get along very well) who want to go and see the Great British Isles and the Republic of Ireland. Campervans can be relatively cheap (not mine though), just make sure they are looked after properly, and if you aren’t a bit of a mechanic then get yourself some good breakdown cover, as you don’t want to be stuck in rural Ireland on the side of the road! Can be quite remote there in places and there aren’t too many mechanics knocking around that would be willing to help. It can be part of the fun though…. Not! Read more

Greetings. Hope I still have some readers after the last entry. I’m a bit of a marmite character if I’m honest. Love me or hate me, I don’t care.

Passion for Commerce

04/11/2015 Main

Hello to each and every one of you. My first entry of my new blog will talk about how and why I have acquired a passion for big business and commerce. Since I was a small boy I have always been a little obsessed with money, and that obsession seems to grow year by year. Some people say that I am bred from capitalism and that I am a victim of that. To which I say “What champagne do you drink” and they reply “Asti”, har-har. I understand life is not all about money, but I am pretty sure that 99.99% of it is. They say people who have less, want less and need less and are therefore appreciative of more in life. But they didn’t drive my uncles Ferrari at 17. Those kinds of things made me hungry, and watching my uncle work hard for what he has, inspires me to work hard myself. I will not sit on my backside and wait for things to happen for me, oh no.
