BLACK FRIDAY – A BUYER’S GUIDE

I remember when Black Friday was a mere myth in the UK retail market and I would often be jealous at this time of year with the prospect of our US counterparts being able to take advantage of ridiculous sales! But soon came the day when the UK (finally) caught onto the sales phenomenan. Each year the UK Black Friday sales get better and better. Do I think they outweigh the January/Xmas Sales? Hmmm, I think they are about the same but there are still some retailers who need to catch up providing proper sales for Black Friday. I think right now most use it as a pre Xmas sale teaser.

HOW TO KICKSTART YOUR CAREER

There's no right or wrong way to launch the career of choice but for me the following 4 things are essential: 1. Consistency -  Looking for a job is a full time job in itself and that is how I treated it when I was employed! You cannot start looking for a job without the willingness to stay consistent.

I set myself a target (a realistic one) and I knew I had no choice but to get where I wanted. Along the way, the plan...
