The 6 Month Update

Well we nearly at the 6 point since things abruptly changed after some nasty health related issues. Retirement did not work and I went back to work part time at The Trade House. This has been good. I have also managed to steer clear of hospital stays since March.

I have managed not to break anything else since the early days and no more wheelchairs have been crashed!

Part Time working is good and I am glad that full retirement has shown itself not to be a viable option.

In other news I have to announce that I have decided to move away from the South East of England to the Midlands and matters are in hand. The Trade House will be moving too. Expect to see more info on this here in the coming weeks. A final moving date will be set shortly and there will be a leaving drinks party or similar event  organised to mark the occasion. Invitations will be sent out to friends, clients, business partners and business associates soon. I am looking forward to this new chapter.

Many regular readers may have noticed that recently the domain name has moved from courtguinness.eu to courtguinness.com. Please, please, please update your contact details as courtguinness.eu will stop working on the 1st November 2018. All courtguinness.eu mailboxes are now on .com. If you have email addresses for courtguinness.eu in your contacts please change the .eu for .com. This will work.

No 6 month update would be complete without discussing The Trade House.  The Trade House is doing very well indeed and the magazine is growing proudly with each new month and the publication of each new issue. With the  September edition unique reader passed the 2,000 reader bar at 5pm on 30/08/2018. That is only 25 hours after publication. The August issue (the quietest of the year) had over 5,000 unique readers. The September edition grew to 56 pages and has over £205 Million of business deals inside. An interactive version is below.

Thank you all so much for reading. I will be in touch soon with further updates.

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.
