I presented a short workshop today to fellow tenants and associates at BG Futures on managing growth, budgeting and the introduction of costs.  This will be achieved without using any numbers which leads people to start thinking outside of box and trying to understanding where we focus our attention in budget management and to be aware of hidden and unknown costs which could ultimately sink the business.  Is the fear of the number the barrier to understanding finance which has opened my mind to writing a blog on the psychology of numbers, a blog will follow.
