JESS School Entrepreneurship Challenge 2014

JESS School Entrepreneurship Challenge 2014

For the past three years, I have had the pleasure of visiting JESS Primary School in Jumeirah to talk to the year 6 pupils about my business. They then split into groups of 4-5 and work together towards the annual Entrepreneurship Challenge. They have to come up with an item to make and sell, they have to market it and then over the course of three days in March, they open a crafters market at the school for the teachers, parents and pupils to come and buy their creations. Yesterday I visited their market to see what all their hard work had produced. As always, I was extremely impressed with...

Maison Mathis at Arabian Ranches Golf Club

Filling a gap in the market by providing another licensed premises in the area,  Maison Mathis, located at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club opened its doors recently to much anticipation. Being a resident of Arabian Ranches, I have a keen interest on what’s going on in my neighbourhood and have been reading other peoples thoughts on the place, from the good to the downright dreadful. To be fair, they are still in their soft opening period so bear this in mind when reading – everyone deserves a chance and that’s why we have such things as soft openings. I met friends there for...

Anantara Al Yamm Villas – Sir Bani Yas Island

Anantara Al Yamm Villas on Sir Bani Yas Island, Abu Dhabi opened its doors on 1st July this year (2013). A few months ago, just prior to their opening, I was lucky enough to win a two night stay with breakfast and return flights to this hidden gem. Since Mr Toffee Princess was in training over the summer, we missed our usual anniversary getaway so when he finally got some leave in October, we abandoned the kids (left them with their grandparents) and headed off for a mid-week break. Getting There Our 25 minute flight was with Rotana Jet from Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi but...
