Piers Morgan Suspended by CNN

I have just seen on Twitter that Piers Morgan has been suspended by CNN in America due to his possible involvement on phone hacking by UK tabloids

Piers Morgan was involved with the News of the World since 1994 at the young age of 28

Amy Winehouse Dead – RIP Amy

WOW I am in shock. I just heard the news that Amy Winehouse has died in a flat in central London. My thoughts are with her family at this time.

Everyone was aware of Amy’s drug problem, but is is not confirmed yet if her death was drugs related. A fantastic music artist of my generation and I am a great fan of her music. A sad loss at such a young age.

EDIT : Sky News has just broken the story that she Amy Winehouse was found dead in her flat in North London

EDIT 2 : Sky News are reporting that Police are treating Amy’s death as “UNEXPLAINED”

Helen Milligan Apprentice 2011 Runner Up mugged in Central London

Nothing like a shock headline to get you some attention. Of course I am referring to the Apprentice Final 2011 which was screened on BBC1 last night with a record figure of 10.7m viewers according to Lord Sugar himself on Twitter today

The winner was Tom Pellereau (the inventor), who pipped Helen Milligan to the post at the final hurdle. Whilst I really liked Tom as a person and the way he came across on the program, I strongly feel that Helen was unintentionally mugged of the investment. Ok her business idea wasn’t exactly a great one, but her professionalism, organisational skills, people management, hugely impressive sales and overall winner of 10/11 tasks throughout the whole series deserved something more than runner up status.

I am looking forward to seeing what Helen does next, as one thing is for certain she is a great businesswoman with fantastic overall qualities and whatever she decides to do, I am pretty sure will be a success.

You can find Helen on Twitter. This is her one and only official Twitter, so please be aware of fakers.

It’s time to start blogging again

Over the past couple of months I have had a few people asking why I don’t blog anymore, and my answer was always one of two things

“I am too busy at the moment”

“I have nothing to write about”

Whilst they are both true to a certain extent, I also know that if I really put my mind to it, I could blog more often and share my ideas and thoughts with others. I am intending to blog more frequently than before, so you can get some of my new tips, hints and ideas that I used to dish out previously elsewhere for free.

I have been busy working on lots of successful projects over the last few months with one project in particular which I am really excited about. I am working on this project along with a new business partner, and someone who is well known and famous in their own field of work, so it will be very interesting to see how this project will unfold with the combination of skills we both bring to the table. What makes it even more exciting is the fact we are also collaborating with a fabulously talented PR who has also had great success, so we should make quite a dynamite team when combined.

I will reveal more about on this when it is closer to launch date, but for now I am keeping it Pure and Simple :)
