How can you enter the property market, and build a portfolio if you aren’t in the lucky position of having capital to help you buy properties?

This is the position I was in when I started, and many people find themselves in the same position today. Deposits are high yet mortgages are at some of their lowest rates. And there is an influx of property for sale just now due to the coronavirus backlog and the stamp duty changes.

If you have a legal issue that you need help with, most people turn to a solicitor. But these can be expensive, charging upwards of £200 per hour, putting them out of reach for many small businesses and for many smaller legal issues, where the fees simply don’t make sense.

However, not all legal problems need a solicitor. Some can be handled, from start to finish, just as well by a paralegal – and they will cost you a lot less.

As an online business, there are plenty of things to keep in mind. Not only starting and maintaining such a business but also, the necessity to take account of the statutory or regulatory requirements you are obliged to fulfill or to which you must adhere.

More and more consumers are purchasing online than ever before. Therefore, as a business, you should be aware of your legal obligations and ensure that your terms and conditions are clear.

Most online sales come under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 which came into force on the 13th June 2014.

The Christmas holidays will be very different this year. For many of us, Covid restrictions will still be in place. And given the tough time we’ve had, it may be tempting to shake off the negativity and enjoy a few days of fun with loved ones. However, considering the potential consequences it might be better to take a different approach. Why not use the Christmas holidays to change your life, both at home and at work?

Isn’t it funny how so many of us are desperate to celebrate Christmas together even though it is a notoriously stressful time of year, even in ‘normal’ times? Family niggles around the dinner table, eating too much, drinking too much, and spending far too much money!

As Covid-19 continues what does your business need for the next phase? What is required are processes and systems to support the safe running of the business, without dominating your every minute.

One way to do that is to create a Covid Safety Toolkit. This is a package of tools that will help you keep track of the changes and the ever-increasing regulation and actions you need to stay on top of. For example, Thomson Screening has developed a toolkit to help SMEs work through what’s needed and how to action it. It provides a checklist, training, and sample documentation. Although creating a toolkit may sound overwhelming, the good news is; none of these activities is new. Businesses do them all the time. It is the fact that you need a Covid flavored versions that make them different today.

There are now many business accelerators on offer. If you have what you believe is a strong business idea should you join a program?  How might you benefit?

Let’s begin by describing what a business accelerator is:

An accelerator program is usually one that gives developing companies access to advice, training, mentorship, investors, and other support that will help them become stable, self-sufficient businesses. An accelerator program can help from the very earliest ‘lightbulb’ stage of a business, through to those businesses who need help scaling up or attracting investment.

That is the concept but do accelerator programs really help entrepreneurs in practice? Some are free, but some programs can be quite expensive to join, so it is important to understand the benefits you can gain by taking part.

‘A Life on our Planet’ is the new documentary by David Attenborough.

He described it as his ‘witness statement’ and it contains compelling statistics that define the devastating problems we face if we do not stop destroying our planet. The film shows the numbers for the rapid increase in the global population, the increase in carbon in the atmosphere, and the accompanying sharp decrease in unfarmed natural land.

Does your job mean you sit at a desk for far too many hours each day? Or does your work involve a lot of lifting? Or, perhaps, moving equipment around? Or working over a low table?

It’s vital to protect your back, whatever kind of work you do. Our body is designed to be able to undertake these activities. However, a combination of repetition, poor technique, or inadequate physical fitness can mean we suffer from injuries that cause pain, ranging from a mild backache to serious pain.

So, how can you better look after your back to avoid problems?
