I know that the title of this blog may leave quite a few of you wondering what the hell I’m talking about…let me explain. Doric, for the majority of us who don’t know, is the local dialect of North East Scotland, in particular the Aberdeen area. Many locals have kept it alive all these years and the bus service even has well known phrases inside it.
Sometimes you can never tell how well you and your business are doing as your head is completely buried in carrying out the day to day admin, emails, posting orders, coming up with new ideas, printing said ideas, promoting on social media and then there’s doing the tax returns and you might have a glimpse into whether or not it’s all worth it. That's with having a day job too.
Well, let me put you straight. This particular post isn’t about my long ago tale of lost romance (if you could call it that), it’s actually about a customer request. However, it did get me thinking to that one time in my life someone said ‘We should get married’. Or at least I think that’s how it went down.
What more could the groom to be ask for? Especially when it's a bottle that can be personalised with a unique message. This extra special single barrel whisky was featured on The Scottish Wedding Directory's website and I was so chuffed to have one of my cards showcased alongside this infamous brand in a gorgeous photoshoot.
Ok...so maybe it's not but actually it is..in a way. Some of us have decided to go it alone and escape the realm of the 9-5. That means no more guaranteed salary at the end of the month. No more paid holidays. And there goes the paid sick days or duvet days, whatever you want to call them. There's no team of people to help or hinder you and no set lunch time breaks to make sure you don't starve to death when you forget to eat. But...what do you get instead?
