Hey small business owners - it’s time to celebrate!
For many, 2020 has been hard, but I've repeatedly seen a resilience shine through, among people from all walks of life. That alone calls for a celebration!
Maybe you're one of the numerous small business owners who’ve had to be innovative to pull through the chaos of Covid? If so, you’re brilliant. And, as a result, you've already inadvertently gathered amazing PR ideas for the small business press.
By taking my business online back in May, I've met new people around the planet; the ambition and sense of purpose has been incredibly empowering. The pace of change has been at a steady gallop all year! In fact, lots has happened even in the last few weeks of 2020. Here’s a look at what's been going on…

I also wrapped up press for an arts programme for Arts La’Olam, as well as PR for podcast Farmerama Radio.
