Today is my birthday. It's also my little brother Rod's birthday - yep we shared not just the date but the exact time!  Ten months ago we lost him suddenly so this is a tribute to him. The brother, son, husband, uncle, soldier and mate who taught us how to live authentically, with compassion, honour and integrity. Severely missed; never forgotten. Love you little bro. Happy birthday! Lyn Prowse-Bishop  ..read more

So when you need to return that faulty item, do you know who's responsible and what rights and remedies you have as a consumer, and what responsibilities you have as a business?

Ep 52: Ethics and Success
The Virtual Business Show
