About Graham Rawlinson

I now have 5 books published as Ebooks http://amzn.to/iOyowj. They feel like part of a life's work, somehow all the different jobs I have had in my life, from postman to psychologist to facilitator of inventions and running a food business, they all build into a way of loving life, the ups and the downs. I hope you like the blogs I write, and then like the books I write. I hope you will want to take some time out of your life to share some thoughts with me. For that, I thank you. Graham

You get what you pay for but what you give freely comes back in abundance

We buy cheap and regret later, whether it is a business purchase or a birthday present, a big saving or just a bit off, we get the message, you get what you pay for. This seems a core idea in … Continue reading
