Easson’s Mini Adventure

Last month #TeamEasson took part in Bowkers #MiniAdventure; after being nominated by our clients Crafty Vintage (thanks Dan!) We drove away on the Monday to start our mini adventure for the next five days of fun in The MINI Cooper S Clubman! But even more excited about the feel of the drive the remarkable interior, with colour changing lights! Everything was amazing about the Mini Cooper S Clubman. We were in store for a week filled of fun – visiting businesses/ places and getting photos of everywhere we went in the Mini Clubman.

Our first stop was the Grill and Grain a recently new restaurant, located on Bolton Rd in Preston. We stopped here to fill our appetite for the fun week ahead in the Mini.

After the pit stop at the Grill and Grain we decided to burn the calories off by hitting BwD Gym located in Blackburn town centre.

The next day we had an exciting trip to Business First in Padiham to visit our clients, then after such a busy day we took ourselves to #cheekynandos

Our week now started to get very busy, as our new flyers had just arrived, and we had a busy week of networking and meeting new clients, this included showing off the amazing mini clubman. WHICH EVERYONE LOVED BTW!

We would like to thank Bowker Mini in Blackburn for the experience. We had the best #miniadventure, and we now have our eyes on our own The MINI Cooper S Clubman. 


From #STARTUP to SUCCESS, entrepreneur lessons you ought to learn from Robert Rodriguez

Many of you probably don’t know who Robert Rodriguez is, a few of his cinematic endeavours include: Sin City, Planet Terror, Machete and From Dusk Till Dawn. Rodriguez, otherwise known as the ‘one-man film crew’ or the Rebel Without A Crew, made a hit independent film with a $7,000 budget. And he did so with only one camera, one piece of sound equipment, no crew, and his finances was largely raised by subjecting himself into lots of medical experimentations. He clearly demonstrated the countless ways to do-it-for-free, for what the professionals would spend thousands on, and without a second thought.

From #STARTUPLIFE to SUCCESS, here are the 8 entrepreneur qualities you ought to learn from Hollywood director, Robert Rodriguez 🎬:

1) Defy Convention – Swim Against The Tide.

I firmly believe that to be successful you have to take risks. Typically, the higher the risks are, the higher the rewards will be. Agree? Rodriguez exploded convention, that you need at least a million dollars to make a feature film – he proved Hollywood wrong and was a true innovator of his time.

2) Listen To Advice – Maybe?

Remember its always good to take on other peoples advice. Just remember there’s no such thing as bad advice. It’s only bad advice if you listen to it. Sometimes you need to learn what not to do.

3) Trademark Yourself – Brand. Build. Brand.

Just like Rodriguez did. He trademarked and branded himself with his unique filmmaking style into one of Hollywood’s most distinguished auteurial directors. Branding is so important.

4) Passion & Determination – DRIVEN TO SUCCEED

All you need is a real sense of passion, determination and a dream to start something new (i.e. startup your own company or move into a different career industry).

5) Be Disruptive – (Again, Defy Convention)

Whatever industry you’re in…..BE DISRUPTIVE! Have creativity and the ingenuity to think outside the box to disrupt your industry’s marketplace! Take the unconventional approach…

6) Have Integrity – Fundamental Quality

Frankly its good to be honest and trustworthy, especially in an industry full of bulls***ers (harsh, but true).

7) Utilise Connections – Resourcefulness Is Key.

Be nice to every person(s) you meet in business, as you never know when you might need their help. Resourcefulness is key.

8) Patience – Time

Prove your worth, time and value. It takes a long time to get where you want to eventually be. Be patient.
