NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT
BE A STAR
Over recent months Ive had the chance to work with
some really wonderful people who are making big differences
to their businesses. Every now and then you meet someone

An expert at something

Always doing more than theyre asked to,
Using their initiative

Stretching beyond their job description
People who stick with an idea from start to finish

Remember when the market gets a little harder; its
the activity that really counts. Increase the calls and
people contact and search out the opportunities that exist.

just that less people are doing it. So youve got to
talk to more people to flush out the ones who are in the
Have a great September and perhaps well get the chance
to work together soon.
