This morning I woke up to the news that Tottenham Hotspur, have parted with their manager, Mauricio Pochettino. This is the guy that last year lead them for the first time to the Champions league final and yet less than six months later he’s been sacked. Disappointing for Mauricio, although the reported £12m ‘golden handshake’ I’m sure helped sweeten the blow. The thing is, results for Tottenham this season have been disappointing and the big boss, Daniel Levy, made that difficult decision to change things for the better of the club.

As business owners sometimes we have to make decisions that are not easy, make us feel uncomfortable and possibly affect someone’s life, but at the end of the day it’s the right decision for the business.

It’s not nice but when you own your own business – the buck stops with you!
