Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
The deadwood press is part of the problem not the solution. It is corrupt, staffed by folks seeking their next career in PR and so who print what they are told and also staffed by lazy mothers who think they have a right to be served stories on a silver spoon without any fact check. This week's howler from the deadwood press is from the Sunday Times.
It ran a feature on 100 folks who were helping the next generartion of entrepreneurs succeed "a definitive list of 100 of Britain’s most successful philanthropists, investors, mentors and advisors, and, ascending entrepreneurs who are supporting the next generation of up and coming business talent"
This grabbed my eye when I saw one of the 100 was a chap I knew, a serial business failure. But a reader has spotted an even bigger failure. Yes it is a member of the Worthington (WRN) gang. The SFO may be all over Worthington but the Sunday Times reckons that one of the definitive list is:
Nick James has 20 years’ experience in the events business on both sides of the Atlantic. He is the founder of Fresh Business Thinking and co-founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards (GBEA). With Fresh Business Thinking, Nick has created one of Britain’s most visited website for ambitious owner managers. At the same time, in its 3rd year, the GBEA are already the flagship awards for entrepreneurs. Nick has also co-authored a number of publications including the well-known Great British Entrepreneur's Handbook.
Hmmm. Really The Sunday Times should have done its homework better. To read about the horror story that is Nick James and how he fits into the Worthington FRAUD click HERE.
And Fleet Street wonders why it continues to lose both trust and readers?
Never miss a story.
