This year, has been a great year for showcasing businesses in our local area. Regular readers will know that we are big advocates of networking. We believe in the power of connecting with people and forming relationships in order to build up a directory of local people that we can connect to others.
We are also a bit nosey and love finding out about how other people work. Do they have any tips on what could be done better or advice on processes to avoid? It’s these nuggets of information that can help build the success of a business and make those all important profits grow quicker.
Below are just a few of the businesses that we’ve interviewed this year:
Local artist – Shema Ladva
Laser design business – Ashare Designs
Local photographer – Cyrus Metha
New Home Care company – Radfield Homecare, Havering and Brentwood
Weekend baby and toddler group – Baby Bears, Upminster

Who doesn’t like to receive a Christmas card? Whilst I’ve been noticing more ‘merry text-masses’ being sent as opposed to physical cards, it’s a tradition that I love to indulge in.
The first commercial Christmas Card was created in 1843 by Sir Henry Cole. He was responsible for thinking up the idea of sending written season’s greetings in a card and it’s a tradition that continues today and is observed by many across the globe. As a result, Christmas Card Day is celebrated every 9th December in his honour.
It’s amazing how simple ideas can flourish into long-lasting traditions. By 1880, Prang and Mayer were producing a massive five million cards a year. The ritual of sending Christmas Cards had become a well-established practice.
Whilst nowadays there is a huge range of images to choose from, back then, many cards depicted children or cartoon animals. In 2001, one of the world’s first Christmas cards sold at auction for a whopping £22,250!
So what are you waiting for? Remember to include a personalised greeting in your homemade masterpiece.
Whilst many reflect biblical verses and blessings, other popular messages written inside a Christmas Card are, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and Seasons Greetings.
No more excuses – do something different this year! Your clients, friends and family will appreciate the effort.
