Like, who died, guys?
The BBC hosted another good speaker on Friday March 5 when we welcomed Justine Priestley (the excitable one on the right, above) who explained to the (mostly) Luddite members what social media and marketing is all about. She showed how tools such as Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and YouTube can be leveraged to open doors for businesses and produce profit.
Some of us have been saying this for years, of course, but it’s nice to hear it from someone who has created a business from this niche … and it’s a niche that’s going to grow and grow.
Now that’s a hustler.
Regal Snooker Club, Preston.
Sat opposite this chap called Ian Mc Culloch (aka Ian Mc Culloch) on Friday morning which meant nothing to me. Thought he was double glazing salesman. Turns out I was right cos he doesn’t have a proper job. He’s a hustler at cards or darts or pool or something.
Still very nice for him to visit and talk to us about his hobby snooker.
Thanks Ian from the BBC and do not get your balls caught in the pocket.
Don’t break your cue or you will have to get a proper job . Our own Jobcentre Phil will help with a few words of advice.

Michelle Clarke brought her own brand of inspiration – called Talent Dynamics – to the BBC on January 28 when she used a simple tool of profiling to broadly divide us into Personality Profiles. These profiles reveal the unconscious ways we approach our lives and businesses.
The theory goes that we should make alliances with people of complementary profiles to be most fruitful. If we all stick to our ‘natural’ styles we will get more done, be happier, take over the world, etc.
It would not surprise many to know we had lots of Creators and Stars in the group – yet, strangely no Traders. They were all out making deals, no doubt.
I think there is something in Talent Dynamics – but only if we act on what was pointed out on the day. Consequently, six of us – from complementary profile types, of course – have decided to start an Action Learning Group to put into practice what was suggested on the day. Watch out world!
