It seems fitting with Blue Monday being this week that we wrote this blog. January can be a bit crap eh? On one hand the month means new resolutions and new opportunities, but the likelihood is that everyone is a bit skint, work is quieter for most businesses and it’s cold and miserable. These factors alone can make it hard to stay motivated and accomplish your to do list, while the feeling of cabin fever also begins to creep in…
t’s not so much new year, new Yellow Bird Digital with our latest blog post. Even though January can be a bit cold, dark and miserable with everyone skint, it’s always exciting in the sense that it feels like the beginning of a new story. So, we’ve been spending the past month having a look back at what our highlights of 2018 were – both personally and professionally.
You might have seen on social media a few weeks ago that we attended the event – Inspiring Entrepreneurs: Work Like a Woman with Mary Portas. Held by Glasgow’s Mitchell Library Business & IP Centre, unfortunately Mary wasn’t there, but speaking live from the British Library about her new book (also called Work Like a Woman), which is manifesto for people looking to adopt change and a new culture in the workplace.
Next month, well Thursday 6th of September to be exact, is National Read A Book Day. Now we know there are a lot of national ‘this’ days, national ‘that’ days, never quite enough national dog days, (you may disagree if you’re not a dog lover), but it got us thinking about the benefits of reading – for you and your business!
Summer can be an odd time of year. While most us look forward to the better weather, festivals, school holidays and potentially some time off, it can be a rather frustrating time for businesses with many reporting that they find themselves in a quiet period; be it the company B2C (business to customer) or B2B (business to business), and of course dependent on the industry you work in.
I’m not quite sure how it came around so quickly, but I’m very proud to be celebrating the first birthday of Yellow Bird Digital at the beginning of July this year. If I’m honest the anniversary kind of crept up on me because I’ve been so busy lately, and it’s been a year of ups and downs in my personal life as well as in my business, so it’s been great to take a little time out to reflect on my year gone by, and also to look forward to what’s coming next!
