#TalkBiz: new reviews and a visit from the Prime Minister

New reviews - Mr Nutcase tablet caseWe’re wrapping up #TalkBiz week by publishing the latest of our new reviews.

One of our panel of home working reviewers has ordered a personalised tablet case from the website Mr Nutcase.

He was pleased with the simplicity and transparency of the ordering process, and the quick delivery of his case.

Check out his full review of a Mr Nutcase tablet case if you’d like to treat yourself or a friend. And if it’s a mobile phone case you have in mind, we’ve already reviewed those for Mr Nutcase and Gadgeo.

Earlier this week we published our review of the Panasonic KX-PRW120 phone, which has some features that are very handy for home business owners. For example you can sync it with your smartphone to pick up landline calls when you’re away from your desk. Very handy if you’re expecting an important call when you need to pop out.

Another of our reviewers has reported back for us, and he’s very pleased with both the appearance and performance of the phone. And in case you’re thinking we write a glowing review because we’ve been given a sample phone, let me reassure you that the suppliers of products for new reviews are always told our reviewers will give their objective opinion.

We also make sure they know our reviewers are a demanding bunch, expecting good value, good looks and good performance. Because that’s what they provide to their clients 🙂

As I write this the Prime Minister is also talking biz, and specifically home business, at the Home Business Summit being held by Enterprise Nation at Somerset House. Home business is now an important part of the economy, and according to an infographic produced for the occasion, an amazing 59% of UK businesses are now home businesses!

Emma Jones, the founder of Enterprise Nation, asked me to provide a quote, which has been included in today’s Government press release. This is what I said – ‘Since I started writing about working from home six years ago there has been enormous progress  – coworking spaces and cafes provide alternative places to work, internet access has improved, the old stigma of home-based business has disappeared. This is a sea change in the way we work and I’m glad to see home workers recognised and supported.’

We’ll be back next week with more fantastic information from our readers and supporters, including the next installment of 5 Things I Can’t Work Without. In the meantime have a wonderful weekend and give yourself a pat on the back for being in the vanguard of British business!
