In a previous blog about work-life balance and I mentioned that faith is important to helping with that work-life balance, so I thank the Lord that He has enabled me to do what I do, and celebrate a year in business. I will be looking at Faith in Business in a future blog; addressing whether it is a taboo subject and who are the main players in the Christians in business sector?

Now, I don’t want to start gushing like Gwyneth, but I do think that it’s right to acknowledge the support that I have had from family, friends and organisations – Livability Enterprise and Enterprise Enfield. I also appreciate my clients, past and present for their belief in PM Noble Consultancy Services and the work we carry out for them.

Special thanks to Geoff Folkes and Kyri Photiou for their support and thanks to my fellow hub users -InterAction Group at the LetsGo! Business Hub.

It’s been an interesting and enlightening year, I look forward to many more!

Take Care
