Wales defeat the old enemy

I couldn’t resist a blog about this. I have had a smile as big as a Cheshire cat all day.

For those of you who know anything about Rugby (or who even care), one of the biggest “rivalries” in world Rugby is any game (and I mean ANY game) between Wales (Cymru) and its centuries’ old foe, England.

How sweet it was when, today at Twickenham (home of English Rugby), Wales defeated its arch-enemy on its own soil for the first time in 20 years. I couldn’t resist draping my Welsh flag over my front balcony and belting out a few Welsh arias…much to the dismay of my English wife, Karen, and our Pommie next door neighbours! Oh well.

What’s this got to do with small business, I hear you ask? Well, I think it’s a triumph for the little guy and gives hope to all of you small business owners who at times feel that it’s only the “big boys” who succeed.

If it’s possible for a nation with only 3 million people to triumph over it’s big “brother” of 51 million people…small businesses will (and can) survive in just as hostile environment and compete with the big corporates.

Small business success isn’t guaranteed but with the right skills; hard work and focus, anything can be achieved in life and in business.

I’m sure that my family in Wales are all partying and still singing Mae Hen Wlad fy Nhadau - iechyd da (cheers) & pwb lwc (good luck) to them all.

Cymru am byth!
