Into the Dragon’s Den

One of my favourite shows in British TV is the Dragon’s Den. On tonight’s Dragon’s Den on tour one of the guys pitching for business was a young race car driver. He had brought his car and a whole bunch of trophies to the den and the dragons all seemed quite impressed and interested in getting involved. Right up to the point where it was revealed that at the level where this guy was competing at the moment, there was no money at all to make. So what the Dragons would be investing in was a bit of a lottery ticket that might pay off in a few years time, when this guy would be racing formula 1. Does anybody see the similarity to a certain other sport? The dragons in the end chose not to invest in this guy and it made me think of two examples I have seen over the last couple of days where players find ways to promote themselves. A Squad invitees Matthew Southgate and Tom Boys both run a very informative blog where they tell the world about what they are up to. it may be that they have not got thousands of readers today but what a great way to prepare and practice for the future!

Somewhat delayed I have just published a new Peter’s Monthly. Check out the Monthly section on the right for the September edition!
