The end of the dailies. As life starts to return to a state less locked down, the boys are returning to their offices.

Stay safe. Neale and Kev x

#129 The sky is the limit and are you ready to work again?

Nine weeks of lockdown has softened our feet and, for some folk aided a little weight gain. So are we fit enough to return to work? Shhh, a little more F versus V. Duplicating web content on Facebook or Instagram; good or bad practise? If you have a business page, listen to this. Kev has an idea how to find who is blatantly copying your hard work on their website. And what stops us from achieving our ambitions?

The last Tech Free Tuesday, for the moment. Could Kev complete a bush tucker trial, what’s the biggest faux pas the boys have made professionally, which photographer would you choose to dine with?
