Hello everyone and welcome to another Friday. For many of you, I’m sure, you went back to work this week and I’m sure its been tough. Hang on in there, its nearly the weekend.

Everyone I talk to says how optimistic they are for 2024, which is great. I have had a busy week looking at some really exciting opportunities which I will bring more details of in the coming weeks.

So, what was happening on this day in history, I hear you ask:

Well in 1966, the original Batman starring Adam West debuts in the US and in 1969, Led Zeppelin’s first album is released in the US. A good day for all superhero and rock fans, like me!
