Not The Businessman of the Year
Although I am always keen to report my successes on this blog, occasionally, to give a balanced picture, I must report my failures (these probably make more interesting reading, anyway). For the second year running I put Ted Coney's Family Portraits forward for a local business award. I went in for the Innovation catergory because I felt my concept was very unusual. However, having heard nothing back, I must assume I have failed yet again. I felt extremely confident about the whole thing until I had to fill in the space on the form which was headed 'Annual Turnover'. Maybe £200 and odd pounds didn't look very cutting edge?!
