Inspiring quote: Alan Sugar (!) on doing what you love

I never thought I’d be quoting the famously grumpy Sir Alan on an emotional intelligence blog, but here he is:

"You’ve got to be happy, it’s not just about making money and all that
stuff. There should be no drudgery in work. You have to enjoy what
you’re doing, and if you don’t, you’d better get out and do something
else because you’re not going to be a success.
– Sir Alan Sugar, interviewed by Liz Hoggard for the London Evening Standard,

Note for non-UK readers: Sir Alan Sugar fills the Donald Trump role in the UK version of The Apprentice, and it’s riveting viewing!

Goal-setting interview

Just to let you know that I’ve been interviewed about goal-setting for Gavin Ingham’s sales blog – which has already created a nice little surge in my readership figures.

I’ve also had a less satisfactory interview experience – a journo from Crain’s Manchester Business phoned me about business coaching, we had a nice chat, I directed him to a satisfied client to interview, and the next thing I hear about it is when the client emails me with a link to the article saying it’s rather strange as I’m not named in it. So you’ll just have to trust me when I tell you that the coach who helped award-winning Manchester design company True North to greater success, and who its MD Martin Carr is praising to the skies, is actually me!
