Episode Info: When it works, it works great but when it goes wrong…well, it can be a little frustrating to say the least! This week I have three major obstacles to overcome but there are compensations…. it’s all about keeping a sense of perspective!Clicks And Leads is a “tongue in cheek” digital marketing Vzine by entrepreneur, author, podcaster, speaker, Nicola Cairncross.On the blogResistanceVisualisationWhat Does Success Mean To YouWhat To Do With Your GoalsBeating Resistance – Tip 1Beating Resistance – Tip 2What You Focus On IncreasesDo Your Feelings Control You?Property as a BusinessPrefer to read?Good morning, it’s Nicola here, and today I am coming to you, not live, from Sicky’s, one of my favourite haunts in Stoupa.I’m not live because the internet is not good enough either here or next door. And the reason I’m down here even talking to you at all is because my internet at home is not working.It’s not been working since Thursday and I’ve been trying to ring Cosmote, our local telephone providers.
