Should you “fire” your difficult client?

How to take a (proper) Holiday

Last week I got back from my summer holiday – 2 weeks camping in Cornwall and Shropshire and then few days with my family in Snowdonia.    Over the years I’ve learned that taking a “proper” holiday (as opposed to a “working” holiday – I love to take those too) twice each  year is absolutely essential for giving me the clarity…
