Destinations, Accomodation, Restaurants, and Experiences
We love experiencing and sharing different and unique luxury properties with our readers. Our Luxury Portfolio shows some of the wonderful businesses we have had the pleasure of working with. We accept only full working relationships. We are a business and you are a business, and we are each providing a service for each other. We also love food and love trying new and different things, so we are very open to reviewing restaurants. As an avid cook and hopeless recipe book collector, I do have knowledge of many cuisines. We are want to share experiences with our readers, and we are open to discussing these with you.
A significant component of our business, which is growing from strength to strength is our Business Analysis. Companies employ us to critique honestly their strengths, weaknesses and trending opportunities. With substantial personal and business experience backed up with university qualifications in business management and administration, this is a significant aspect of our portfolio.
Why your hotel may just need that little bit of tweaking to get it to the X factor level? Do you want to know why people are picking the hotel or café down the road instead of yours? Why you probably need to engage in promoting your business more through the correct social media channels; Who are the clientele that you should be spending your marketing money pursuing? Obviously, we talk with travel industry personnel from all over the world, so our insights are very acute to the market needs.
Our Mentoring Program
We also mentor up and coming entrepreneurs. This developed from our successful travel blogging business. We currently are working with people from all different fields to help them to have an online presence, and importantly to have the confidence to take their talents and their businesses to the next level. We are currently working one on one, with an author, some people in the health industry, a real estate agent, a photographer and for some odd reason a bespoke landscaping business. I handle the confidence issues and the strategies to move forward in a positive way, and Gordon gets into the pragmatics of business development, which includes finances, website development. As a team we compliment one another and out budding entrepreneurs appreciate the yin and yang we bring to their professional lives.
This is a consulting service and one where will we be honest yet offer achievable suggestions. Talk to us and we will discuss our rates.
