Hi mate,

The key differential in your situation is the income derived from BITB. This means that when modelling 'likelihood' of ruin your situation is vastly different to the %s others should play who are entirely dependent on their pure roll.

Ongoing income from other sources means you should be playing much harder than those that live or die by a pure capital base.

Hope you're well!

I think the other thing as well is you have some good people in there for sure, but at the start its always a certain type of person who sticks out - those loud, over confident ones who think themselves business gods superior to all others with actually no real talent or results to back it up... Even the good ones got caught up in their nonsense!  Sarah Jayne might be ok, if she was in an actual team she was actually the leader of she'd maybe have done a good sub-team job, however she had Elizabeth with her who was in a mood because she wasn't made sub team leader and just ignored her and went off donking about, Sarah got made to look pretty shit in last nights episode.

The first week's task could not be more straightforward, Dave.

1. Ascertain best footfall.
2. Decide cost per unit.
3. Decide desired margin / cost of production.
4. Get a wiggle on making them.
5. Be present and sell hard for lunch rush.
6. Sell excess to trade.

Agree that this one is a bit fiddly mind.

True - the girls did a pretty decent job, only thing that let Sarah L down was that her sub team went opposing instructions and bought cheap meat so the burgers were pretty rubbish. The boys faffed about for far too long because no-one listened to anyone and Charles wanted to show the world how clever he was.

Also, as simple as that sounds in your list (and i'm sure you're right) I think its actually quite a bit tougher than that, under the time pressure. I've been involved in successful food pop up projects and the planning takes months, working with people I know.

When you're making them work for a sustained peiod yours is a genuine challenge, however. In that you need sustainability of proposition, brand, 'buy in' etc. In the first episode of the Apprentice literally all they had to do was make some burgers, cook them, and sell them. The presence of a film crew in an area of high footfall ensures traffic from those who can't wait to feature on TV - I dare say they could be serving up shit sandwiches (almost literally) and still get away with it. You can only sell it whilst there's footfall, however. Missing the lunch window in that task is just horrific.

The early weeks are such compelling viewing as the participants are all Chiefs and no Indians. A collection of individuals desperate to prove their own ability with no sympathy or understanding of synergy and working as a cohesive unit. I always wonder what would happen in those weeks if one team was granted a 'wildcard' of a genuine business superstar who they could not but help listen to. I feel like they could do 500% that which the typical team achieves.

Strong work.

Shout if you fancy lunch in the 'countryside' one weekend. Meeting a nine month old should be sufficiently powerful contraception to enable you to focus on life as a couple for a while yet.

Afternoon Trigg,

If you wangle a 'pass out' to watch Wednesday at the weekend and fancy a pint before hand with me and my old man it would be our pleasure. My son, Toby, is now 9mths old and I'd be happy to answer any questions!

Ian's son is now 31yrs old. He is still getting the hang of it all.

Percy is full of colic, tried some massage but doesn't seem to be doing much
Everytime I lput him in his basket on his back he's crying straight away

Put him on your shoulder.  Rub his back round and round until he burps or farts.  You should feel it and feel him relax after.  Try and stay awake until he is relaxed.  Walk around, even sing to him.  I am a bad singer, but it seems to work. 

Some nights are going to be shitty.  Good luck.

Not convinced any colic medicine does anything. 

Toby was always greatly reassured by a rendition of "We've got Bannan, Barry Bannan"!

Best of luck to you all and enjoy it Smiley

Evening all,

I'm getting alarmingly middle-aged and non tech savvy rather quickly so can't remember how to do that there photos thing. If someone puts up an idiot's guide I'll get on it. Headlines are as below...

- Toby is now 8nths old and just the best thing ever. He looks just like his Mum which is a massive bonus.

- I am grafting hard in my role of work which is both rewarding and fulfilling. Crucially it also offers a direct tie between my work and the compensation/future it delivers for us as a family.

- Helen is starting to think about the route back to work. This has raised a lot of questions about how the UK economy encourages/doesn't encourage some of its most valuable staff back to work.

- I don't really have the time to punt anymore but had a legendary GC day at Chelters with 25s (NAP), 15/2 and 22/1 (ew) bets. Ian received the full preview and won about £50. Well done that man...

- He continues to live a simply hilarious life but remains the living embodiment of what someone should look to contribute to society through their working life and how, if they are lucky/fortunate, they will be compensated for this. He also continues to play poker above his station / skill set.

- On a wholly unrelated note I hadn't played poker for 18mths but played a couple of weeks ago at DTD. Father and I started the game and I offered to toss a coin for position. He declined and told me to sit in position as he could check raise. It transpires position is still important in poker.
