I remember thinking ‘I wish I was like him’. The ‘him’ in question was a successful entrepreneur who seemed to have it all. We had met while doing a show with a local drama group and I was always impressed by his positive attitude and great sense of humour.

Happy new year to you. May 2019 be a positive year of growth for you in every sense of the word. Our family was lucky to get away for a few days to Holland over the Christmas and we were due to travel back to Ireland on New Year’s Eve evening. But all did not go as planned…
