End of another year

It has been an interesting busy year and I’ve met a fantastic exciting group of people who have shared  their ideas for a small business with me.   These people come to me mainly through Grow Wellington – so thanks very much.   I look forward to seeing the fruition of all their hard work, in the form of successful new ventures, and look forward to being able to be still able to provide research assistance to you all.  Hopefully 2011 will bring me the opportunity to work with a whole new raft of inspired Wellingtonians.
