Whilst attending a Business event earlier today, the icebreaker challenge was posed: “If you had an infinite amount of time and money where would you go on holiday and why?” Whilst everyone had an interesting idea of where they would like to go and offered a good reason for their destination from ‘seeing long lost friends and family’ to ‘somewhere I’ve always wanted to go’ it did make me wonder…..

Don't cut your nose off to spite your face! It's one of those expressions you hear from time to time and often heed as a result. But is there ever a cause for you to do it anyway? Some many think I'm CRAZY, as I've recently had a conversation and sacked one of our largest clients!
