Our New Domain


Owing to new rules surrounding .EU domains I have been forced to move from courtguinness.eu to courtguinness.com as I will not be able to renew the EU domain as I and the business are UK entities and under the new rules brought in because of Brexit EU domains cannot now be registered or renewed by UK entities.

All signage and links are in the process of being updated.

There may be small glitches, please do get in touch with me if there if there are any issues.

Happy 6th Birthday To This Website.


Well the official birthday isn’t until 12/06/2018, however I will be extremely busy on that day and may not be able to write a blog on that day.

So what has happened in 6 years?

Well, this site has gone through more than a few changes in terms of look and feel. More than that functionality has changed. Look at the addition of The Trade Counter and DealNet for example. There are more changes planned soon. More importantly the blogs content focus has expanded and developed, from being a blog website to now being a fully functional multi purpose website for both my business and personal interests. This site has grown from 6 pieces of individual content and functionality to over 3,500 items of content.

In terms of visitors this site has gone from 200 unique visitors visitors a month to an average of 11,000 unique visitors taking in an average of 4.92 pages per visit. The best ever month saw 20,759 unique visits.

I am delighted by these figures and even more delighted about the large number of positive business conversations that are taking place with the starting point being this website.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to both the occasional and regular reader and visitor alike for visiting, reading and returning!

Early May 2018 Update


Since my last update in early April a lot has gone on.

Here are some highlights:

  • VirtualOffice and PersonalCloud products have been brought back after an aborted sale.
  • I am on the look out for a new non executive directorship or trusteeship to take on.
  • I have managed to sell, divest or close many of my business interests.
  • I am out of the wheelchair for the time being but this might change. The road to recovery is a slow one.
  • I am now more than 50% deaf 🙁
  • I am bringing back The Tradehouse and a new version should be available over the summer. This will most likely be integrated into this site.
  • More than 400 new products have been added to my shop.
  • Readership of The Weekly Deals Free Sheet is now consistently at over 1500 unique readers each week.
  • Since its relaunch last year, The Weekly Deals Free Sheet has enjoyed a consistent weekly straight line growth of 12%.
  • This website and the shop had over 14,000 visitors – a figure I am very pleased about. I would like to thank all website visitors for taking the time to visit.
  • This website will be getting a small revamp over the summer.
  • I am still mostly retired and I am very pleased to say that I am generally very happy in my retirement 😀 I do struggle do fill a week with activity but maybe that is  very good thing.
  • I will be be attending The Business Show at London Excel later this month. You can take the man away from business but you cannot take business away from the man!! This visit will be much more genteel than other visits to the show but I will have time for 1-2-1 meetings and to spend time with old colleagues, friends and adversaries who will be in attendance at the show.

Thank you for reading.
