You may have seen a lot of chat on our social media from the past couple of weeks about the RBS Accelerator programme and wondered what the heck we’re talking about!
*This blog post was written in two parts, by both Nicola & Lindsay. We hope you enjoy reading it! Nicola’s bit is up first (incase you were wondering).
It seems fitting with Blue Monday being this week that we wrote this blog. January can be a bit crap eh? On one hand the month means new resolutions and new opportunities, but the likelihood is that everyone is a bit skint, work is quieter for most businesses and it’s cold and miserable. These factors alone can make it hard to stay motivated and accomplish your to do list, while the feeling of cabin fever also begins to creep in…
t’s not so much new year, new Yellow Bird Digital with our latest blog post. Even though January can be a bit cold, dark and miserable with everyone skint, it’s always exciting in the sense that it feels like the beginning of a new story. So, we’ve been spending the past month having a look back at what our highlights of 2018 were – both personally and professionally.
You might have seen on social media a few weeks ago that we attended the event – Inspiring Entrepreneurs: Work Like a Woman with Mary Portas. Held by Glasgow’s Mitchell Library Business & IP Centre, unfortunately Mary wasn’t there, but speaking live from the British Library about her new book (also called Work Like a Woman), which is manifesto for people looking to adopt change and a new culture in the workplace.
This week saw the Yellow Bird Team hold our very first workshop. We’ve been wanting to do one for a while but getting caught up with day to day work, it can be difficult to set some time aside to not only develop our own brand, but give something back to the small business community.
A (braw) wee thought of the day. As a small business, or be it a personal brand, have you weighed up how much time you are spending on online promotion versus the traditional activities? Second thought, do you find it hard to cover all the bases or even track what you’re doing?
