Every year I put together a mega post of 50, or maybe even 51, things that I have learnt during the year in business and in life. Here is the fifth year of this review and this time it is mostly business as there has been a particular business slant in the last twelve months, lots of work. Some of the things may be repeated from previous years, as yet I don’t know because when I am writing this I do […]

However with the new law that is going through parliament in Spain at the moment I think that I am perfectly within my rights to say that maybe, just maybe, the party who is proposing […]
