One of the companies I direct has had ongoing legal disputes for a number of years (before I joined). It's great experience for me but can't help but think that only lawyers win in a court room, regardless of the outcome.
I've been helping out a local business for a few months, and have just been appointed as a non-executive Director of their business. I'm really happy with this one as it is truly a great company and I feel very lucky to be a part of it. I prefer a director role over a consultant role because it puts skin in the game; a fiduciary responsibility on my behalf to act in the best interest of the company, not myself. Consultants benefit from selling advice, which sometimes isn't what the company needs. A director is legally responsible for making it work.
Some friends went above and beyond in making halloween a fun night. Pool, foosball and putting competitions were a highlight of the evening.
Cooking up a storm
I've had so much good food this month, it's been amazing. Nim has been really putting the new kitchen to use and producing restaurant quality meals. I have been really lucky growing up to have my mum be an absolute weapon at cooking and now living with Nim has been great too. I cook on Tuesdays but really do need to step up my game a bit in this arena.
