Last week, the first cohort of The Angel Investing School came to an end (you can read about it here). However, this wasn’t the only highlight of my week as it was my daughters 3rd birthday. She is finally at an age where she understands what birthdays are and despite COVID-19 we had a lot of fun, food and water fights!
Some of you may know that it was also my birthday over the weekend too. Grateful for all the kind messages I received (thank you), good health and safety.
Heading into this week, I am speaking at two events on Tuesday. First at 6pm BST on How to Improve Your Mental Performance and the second at 8pm BST on Remaining Profitable During COVID.
Have a productive week!
