I'm a middle age entrepreneur. What do I bring to the table? A lifetime of experience. When I started my career I had to do things the hard way:
Cold calls from a landline.
Networking face to face.
Marketing sans Google and Facebook.
Develop a work ethic.
Learn how to balance my career and my family.
If you're middle age and considering opening a business, there's never been a better time. Use your life experiences and you will propel to success!
The Romans…were terrified by the fine order of the Celtic host, and the dreadful din, for there were innumerable horn-blowers and trumpeters, and…the whole army were shouting their war-cries…Very terrifying too were the appearance and the gestures of the naked warriors in front, all in the prime of life and finely built men, and all in the leading companies richly adorned with gold torcs and armlets.

I’m joining in with the wonderful blogging community today to celebrate one of our dearest members who tragically passed away on Monday leaving her two sons, her family and friends devastated. I still can’t believe it myself.
Anyone whoever read Wit Wit Woo will know Kate was passionate about pushing anyone she came into contact with to be more positive about their bodies.
Kate was bold, she was funny, she was intelligent, kind and had a wicked sense of humour. I can’t believe she’s not with us anymore. It’s not fair.
Her son Ben is raising money to cover the funeral costs, you can find it on Go Fund Me and hit the hashtag #bemorewitwitwoo and you’ll find the link (sorry I haven’t been able to copy it here). They have hit the target but I’m sure you’ll agree that any extra they have will go towards finding a new path as they adjust to life without mum.
So that is why you find me posting a selfie in a bikini - two things that are well out of my comfort zone. To remember Kate and everything she stood for. ❤️ I will find the link and add it to my bio, £5, £10 whatever you can spare would make a huge difference and take away some of the problems for a couple of months. #lifeistooshort#wearthedamnswimsuit#middleage#swimsuitselfie#bemoreWitWitWoo
The Byzantine stand at the Siege of Constantinople in 717/718 was one of the most crucial military successes of the Middle Ages. Had the Arabs successfully captured the Byzantine capital, they would have been able to march into south-eastern Europe almost unopposed. The delay caused by their defeat ensured that Western European forces were able to come together and drive the Muslims back. The city did not fall to the forces of Islam for over 700 years until Mehmed the Conqueror took Constantinople on May 29, 1453.
The Arab threat was so great that the Bulgars, who were hardly fans of the Byzantines, stood side by side with their erstwhile enemies to ensure the Muslim invaders were defeated. The Bulgars had only established friendlier relations in 716 but Khan Tervel knew the implications of a Byzantine defeat. Also, the Bulgars had designs of their own and wanted to be the ones to capture Constantinople at a later date. It was a long brutal siege, but eventually, the Byzantine and Bulgar combined armies forced the Umayyad Caliphate to retreat and while the Arabs continued to harass Byzantine territories, their goal of total conquest was thwarted.

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.” Mandy Hale This is me and Tracey back in High School. I borrowed her dress and look how totally different!! We cannot go anywhere that we are not asked if we are Sisters. Well in a sense, yes. Yes we are! The Sisterhood (Brotherhood) of supporting one another to be all that we individually desire to be. The Greatest Secret to aging Gracefully is being true to yourself. Be yourself in all you do! That’s where the truest power, confidence and excessive joy will flow.
