I really don't think of things like this, much better to dwell on the positive.
I suppose someone dropping a 40 megaton nuclear warhead about 20 miles from my house would ruin my day, not close enough to kill me straight off, but enough to give me a long, lingering death from radiation poisoning.
Or perhaps the EDL & BNP getting into power would take the shine off the next few years.
But really, I don't think about these things because if you dwell on the bad you can never be truly happy...
Apart from loss of close family & friends, which is a matter of life, the only other thing I am passionate about is my businesses.
I had to put one of my companies into receivership today. I spent years building it up to £1M+ turnover a year but due to the combination of late paying customers, suppliers errors in product costings, my bookkeepers errors, lack of support from my bank and incompetence by my factoring agent and other factors, I cannot fund the companies increase in order book.
Fortunately I have more than one Ltd company and am transferring manufacturing from one to the other. Yes I know its called phoenixing and a bad word to many but I have to survive and maintain the employment of my staff.
I am writing off debt mostly to Crown and a few major suppliers who can be replaced.
I do not want to discuss the details surrounding this event but it is the worst scenario for me as a businessman. I am gutted that it had to come to this but I feel that I can move forward now and a great weight has been lifted.
I can sympathise with Blackhat, as for both me and the wife was bankruptcy back a few years ago.
We had struggled for years, even got help which turned out to make things worse, and in the end we had no choice, even the judge agreed. The lead up to the morning in court was the worst few months of our lives, and not an option I would recommend, as its not the "easy way out" as some people say.
