'I'm never having kids'

Tom

Hi, I'm Tom. I'm a marketing professional and run a number of websites including The Business Ninja. I've worked in the Will Writing industry for the largest self-regulatory body governing Will Writers and now I offer marketing consultancy and support. I love business, motorcycles and my family. I've been with my beautiful wife since I was 13. She's my world and I would do anything for her.

I would love to be the next Richard Branson and I have lots of business ideas which I plan to bring to fruition over the next few years. Richard's approach to leadership inspires me and I love the time he has for his staff. 

Outside of work I love motorcycles. I have 2 at the moment. I slimmed the collection down recently but plan on getting more soon. I love self-development, learning new things, Ted Talks inspirational videos and socialising!

Plan for 2019

A bit of background I have to say, I have had a pretty awesome last few years. In 2014, Charlotte and I bought our first house. This was a pretty big deal for us, and as we know a house is pretty much the biggest purchase or financial commitment we will ever make. Following on […]

What's new with me?

I originally started this blog for my family to keep track of what we're up to. We have some family that live a little too far for regular visits and I applied some simple SEO to the articles. As a result the traffic has increased to a point where it simply cannot be just family […]

Motorcycle Live

I've been going to Motorcycle Live for the last 4 years. It's a motorcycle event where all sorts of motorcycle and lifestyle brands come together to share their latest offering to enthusiasts. This year though, I was lucky enough to have been surrounded by the best biking buddies I could ask for. We're an eclectic […]

A week away at Centre Parcs

We're very fortunate to be surrounded by the supportive family that we have in our lives. Recently we were lucky enough to have a week away at Centre Parcs in Sherwood Forest with some of these. It would be Harry's first holiday and our first trip away this year. What's better, we were getting to […]

Busy working week

This week has been great! I've met some very interesting people, had some productive meetings and had plenty of time spent on the business. This has allowed us to begin planning what we're going to be doing over the next 12 months. The business plan is being remodelled and the new marketing strategy is under […]

Dad's take 6 weeks on/ life at the moment

So I'm starting to get into the swing of things now. We're 6 weeks in and Harry is still such a little gem. I've learnt that I am not as patient that I would like to be and that Charlotte is so good with Harry. I'm not the best at burping him so Char sometimes […]

Been a crazy weekend

Good evening, I don't seem to have stopped this weekend. The weekend started with a visit from my Mum. Despite her only living around the corner (a couple of miles away) we don't get to see her as often as we would like. This comes down to a mixture of things but ultimately it's that […]

4 weeks in - the biggest challenges so far

Nobody said that this parenting thing would be easy and I was a little guilty of complacency after two relatively good nights in hospital with the support of the hospital staff. Getting home and then not knowing what to do came as a bit of a shock. I read that the first two weeks whilst […]

1 week in to this parenting thing

1 week in. What have I learned? When it finally hit home that we would have the responsibility for a little person I had an internal mini meltdown. I felt a real pang of responsibility as we walked out of the hospital for the first time. We were leaving the professionals behind. These were the […]

Meeting Harry for the first time - Tom's take

We had a provisional slot booked in for Char to have a C-Section on the 26th but on arrival we had a scan and were told that Baby Stansfield (as he was then known) was not breach. Both Char and I had got our hopes up that we were going to be holding our baby […]
