Tis the season to be jolly don’t you know

Time flies when you’re having fun. Actually, time flies when you’re not having fun too and, for many UK business owners, given the uncertainties and tensions surrounding Brexit, ‘fun’ may not feel like the most appropriate description as we come to the end of 2018. But Tis the season to be jolly don’t you know, and here are some amazing events that should make us all feel happier about the past 12 months, and give us all a few pointers to personal and professional fulfilment:

1. Gareth Southgate
The England team’s success (ok, we didn’t win, it just felt like it), was fuelled by empathy and empowerment. By building positive and open relationships, Southgate showed the world a perfect example of true teamwork at play; a lesson to all those who still believe you get the best out of people by ‘treating ‘em mean’.

2. Anything’s possible
As documentary maker Stacey Dooley demonstrated when she, with partner Kevin Clifton, were crowned winners of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday. What she lacked in dance experience, she made up with dedication to learning, the stamina to stick to a gruelling training schedule, a great sense of rhythm and a strong focus on her goal.

3. Yes you can
Carrying on the theme of ‘anything’s possible’, when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married, they showed us all that you can effect change, even in a staunchly traditional event like a royal wedding. Who can forget the entertaining address delivered by Bishop Michael Curry or the spectacular rendition of ‘Stand by me’ sung by the Kingdom Choir?

4. Long hot summer
This summer will be remembered for a six-week spell from the end of June to the second week of August when daytime temperatures consistently topped 30C (86F). And we all enjoyed it, and we couldn’t help ourselves as exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain’s release of serotonin, a hormone associated with boosting your mood and making you feel happy.

5. Services sector working gets a boost
Sunshine, happiness and the World Cup had a direct effect on sales. With the UK services sector – everything from restaurants to banking – which makes up about 80% of the economy, benefitting. Construction also picked up, after work slowed or was postponed due to adverse weather conditions earlier in the year.

6. The remarkable strength of employment
The labour market has strengthened significantly since the EU referendum, with most of the growth in full time jobs, reducing concerns that people were setting up in business because they could not find any other work.

Having worked with Nordens over the last 5 years, not only to look after my annual accounts but they have also provided outstanding professional advice. They have guided me through a Company share buyback with clear and objective advice. We have also been using Nordens strategic services for a couple of years, which has helped bring about significant improvements that exceeded my expectations. With experience of working with several local accountants over my 29 years in business, I’m very pleased with the service I have received from Nordens.

  Why I Founded Nordens

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier, the difficult part was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
