You DON’T have to be great to get started

Visionboard

…although you DO have to get started to be great! The New Year hasn’t started quite as we’d planned (and boy have we planned), because while David’s COVID-19 test returned negative yesterday, he does have a rather bizarre viral infection which has left him totally wiped out and so it seems, I shall march boldly […]

KIND people live LONGER!

World Kindness Day was celebrated last Friday 13th November, as it is each year and although it is NOT currently a day affiliated with any religion or political movement, over 28 nations participate in this unofficial holiday and here at Team FIT, we believe it should be an EVERYDAY occurrence!

FIT Comes of Age on Valentines Day

birthday

We’re feeling incredibly emotional this morning, in more ways than one, although all of these emotions are happy and positive ones because….. 18 years ago on 14th Feb 2001, we launched our beautiful little company, First Impression Training Ltd and today, after a journey of relentless hard-slog, sweat and (many) tears, we have finally come […]

My Husband (and Business Partner) Left Me on Valentines Day

my husband

I’m writing this week’s FIT Bits on the evening of Valentine’s Day – sitting on my lonesome in the office, feeling very sorry for myself and a little unloved to say the least. My husband (who, as many of you know, is also my business partner) has deserted me, or rather chosen to spend the […]
