Ok, bit of an experiment here ….
Over the years I’ve helped a lot of people out and never really asked for anything in return, many have said “you’ve saved our business, thank you! – we’ll send you a bottle of something to say thanks” .. others have said “times are hard, but you’ve really saved our skin, we’ll remember you in the future”, etc … and with the exception of a couple of people (including one person I helped today) who’s actually said “thank you” and “sent a gift”, the rest have really just either forgotten or received thousands of pounds worth of free consultancy and kept their businesses going as a result.
I’m not bitter, I don’t really mind, I’d rather help a friend and see them succeed than sit back knowing that I could have done something to help them, but didn’t ….
However, today I’ve put together a little Amazon Gift list .. items ranging from the cheap to the eye wateringly expensive (but all things I want and would buy if I weren’t currently so financially challenged myself).
So, anyone feeling generous?
Failing that, here’s a list of tech that’s quite cool and you might want to consider buying for yourself if not for me
