Autumn marches forward, and soon we are in November, that means one thing; Christmas is just around the corner. Christmas shopping, Black Friday, Day of the Dead in some cultures. But in my culture (Manx – British Crown Dependency) it also means a hail of Armed Forces Parades, religious remembrance services for the dead (with a keen focus on the guys from our side, of course) and the selling of red poppies… Read More

The Job For You (Opening Up About Career Choices and Mistakes)

From the age of 5, when I started school, teachers were already telling me to think about what job you want to do. It was always everyday things such as working in a supermarket, being a policeman or a firefighter.

How do we garner our self-respect? Why should we bother? To make us happy and fulfilled of course. A man who respects himself is respected by others. A leader is a winner in this world. Someone who respects himself is worth following. Other men and women will look up to him and take his lead. Let’s be real. People do judge a book by its cover. All the time people are giving… Read More
