Back to School - Doug Richard's School for Startups!

I’ve decided that Ginger Beer could be the tonic that the country needs to cheer itself up from all this electral gloom…hung parliaments, emergency budgets, budget deficits etc…..its not cheery stuff at all!

I’m just back from 5 days in London at the Real Food Festival 2010 which took place Friday 7th through to Monday 10th…..at Earl’s Court!  Having only just started up in business a little over a year ago [well a year and two months if you want to be pedantic] then I’m not well versed […]
