Cardiff Life article, spring 2013 (feat. PayZip)

My Cardiff Life column from April or May of 2013. Full PDF here. April and May have been the month of “making tough decisions”. To be honest I’d known that I needed to make changes for at least a few months, but it had taken weeks and weeks for the circumstances to align themselves to […]

Cardiff Life article, spring 2013 (feat. CustomBooster)

Cardiff Life column  – April or May 2013. Full PDF here. As I write, I’m on the train back from a meeting in 10 Downing Street. I feel a mixture of privilege, amusement and excitement. It was a great honour to be invited, but I was also surprised at what I found inside. Being there […]

Cardiff Life article, spring 2013 (feat. Audibase)

Another Cardiff Life article. Here’s the PDF of the actual page.

Cardiff Life article, late 2012 (inc Timto interview)

I’ve completely lost track of which month this issue of Cardiff Life this article appeared in. Here’s the PDF, though, if you want to read it with pictures 😉 Last week I spent a morning on Treforest industrial estate. Not the most glamourous of locations to be at the onset of winter, but it was […]

Cardiff Life column, late 2012

I’ve lost track of which month these last few columns of 2012 relate to, but it’s about November sometime. Full PDF etc here. As I’ve mentioned in previous columns, the process of seeking investment for Dizzyjam has taught me more about business in one year than I learned in the previous ten. Nothing makes you […]
