I hope you've enjoyed your summer and managed to take a well-earned break from work. Due to holiday season, there was no Talking Sense in August but you may well receive two for the price of one in September instead. Watch this space!
In this issue you'll find advice on making time for marketing and some tips on creating a great e-newsletter. Plus, I'd like to hear about the challenges you face when it comes to blogging in this very short survey.
I hope you find it an interesting read and pick up some useful tips for your own business. If there's anything you'd like to see featured next time, please get in touch.
Until next month, Lucy

A special request...
If you don't currently write your own blog, either for business or pleasure, I'd like to know what factors are preventing you from starting. Is it a lack of confidence, fear of sharing, or maybe you think you don't have anything interesting to say?
It's completely anonymous and your answers will help me to prepare for a workshop I'm delivering in November to support first-time bloggers.
I just had to share this...
