Blinding snow and the blinding obvious

Did you know that snow isn't white?


It's actually transparent. The light reflecting within and off it is what gives snow its white colour.


I read this recently and was reminded of it when I woke up this morning to find a glorious amount of settled snow everywhere.


I love the brightness and light. It never fails to put me in a good mood.


And then the 5 minutes of joy I get from seeing the kids out in it. Running around, throwing snowballs and making snowmen. Before complaining of how cold it is and stomping back into the house. Before warming up and going out again. And then back in. And out. In. Out ...


By the end I'm sure there's more snow indoors than out.


But I digress ...


If my snow fact is new to you, I'm pretty sure that over the past 24 days, the business tips myself and Lindsey have been providing won't have been revelations.


In fact, they're all based on the blindingly obvious.


The problem is, as you're busy running a business, the obvious can escape your attention. So today's small business tip is: Consider the obvious.


And as I'm in such a good mood, I thought I'd list out the past 22 tips for you here, in one place, with a link to each.


As I say, they're all pretty obvious, but each has its merit in helping you save time and make money. Two pretty important reasons to consider them, don't you agree?


Best, Sarah
