Where Business Ideas Come From

One of the most enlightening talks and ideas I’ve come across in a while comes from Steven Johnson. I’d just had to share talk courtesy of TED. For me this speech is freakishly relevant to whats been going on my business for the last few months.

As always i’d love to hear your thoughts!

Irish Web Awards Nominations

I was delighted with the news that we got nominated for FOUR Irish web awards on projects I’m currently involved with.

It’s great timing for us with our Halloween Costumes business,, gearing up for another busy season. The Costume Shop is nominated for Best E-commerce / Service Website in Ireland AND Best SME Website. A huge compliment given the caliber of other companies in this category.

Halloween Costumes Nomination

The Bikini Shop which saw huge growth this year in Swimwear sales due to the warm summer is nominated for Most Beautiful Web Site, hopefully not just because of the beautiful models that we have on the site 🙂

And the icing on the cake Christmas FM, a social enterprise that raises money for charity but playing non-stop Christmas music during the festive season was nominated for Best Music Site. A true achievement for a project coming into its third year running.

The Full nominations list can be seen at the Web Awards website.
