Speak to businesses in your area and look at the local press to get an idea of what is happening in your region. These surveys seem to flip with the wind and can sometimes lead to self fulfilling prophecies.

The confidence that - if you're out and about in the real-world Scottish business community - is carried on the pragmatism , common sense and integrity of various individuals at the helms of numerous small craft. The heart and soul of business is in the majority - who don't live in that rarefied 'Howard's Way' fantasy land that the headliners obsess about.

Scottish business confidence? Aye, things isnae jist too bad at the minute.

We have seen it time and time again in the past, negative headlines actually lead to self-fulfilling prophecies. Why is it that many business people are never happy with their lot, they want to push things too far too quickly and then jump ship when the going gets tough. I would prefer a more balanced approach to long-term business strategy in Scotland. What hope is there of this!

Good question Mark... I think you tend to see that sort of thing in people who view their businesses as cash extraction machines, as opposed to those who do what they do because it's what they do! I don't think the former is sustainable either as a business strategy, lifestyle choice or basis for an economy.

Do you guys use vpn services for multiple accounts use? I've heard that otherwise you might get banned always, is it really so? And here is another question, which is the best vpn for mac? I've found a few options but it's quite hard to choose the one out of them.
