Passing on the baton April 2021

I took the plunge today. I stopped receiving email sent to my work email address.

The reason is that I have sold First Ideas Limited to my wonderful son Gordon Hill. Over the past 9 months he and I have been sorting ourselves out, passing things over and so on. It’s not as easy or quick as you’d think. In the past few months, I have been dealing with user technical support (First Ideas Help Desk) and the invoicing, while Gordon has been picking up new business. He’s been an experienced web developer for some years and has much more knowledge and experience than me regarding digital marketing, so the technical side of things hasn’t been an issue. It’s just been a question of working through stuff methodically, one thing at a time.

Anyway, long story short, Gordon is now in the driving seat, and I’m not even in the car. All the work email now goes to Gordon. It’s bloody brilliant. I feel refreshed and excited. Time for a cold shower.

(I am continuing to run the community website for Wantage and also my numerous music websites)
