Empty cafes will be a thing of the past if we get our way...

We’re shared our “We’re too busy to implement ourselves, but PLEASE SOMEONE DO THIS” business ideas with you in the past, and they seemed to be quite a hit. So we thought we’d shared a few more. We’ve got too many projects on the go to validate them or do anything with them, but we’d really like to see them exist in the world. Let us know if you think so too!

When couples work together, strange things start happening to their faces...

Running a business with your spouse or partner is HARD. There’s the issue of where to draw the line between work and life.

The tactics, tools and rules we use to run multiple businesses while we travel

Working from anywhere...including beer gardens

We often get asked about the tools, software and processes we make use of while running our businesses while travelling – which is brilliant, because we absolutely love to talk about it. We do get asked A LOT though, so we thought it warranted a blog post in its own right. This post explains what’s working for us right now. As you’ll see, our processes are by no means perfect (and we’re rather embarrassed about the number of times “MS Word” gets namechecked), but we’re slowly streamlining everything and finding online, cloud-based solutions…
