Your Business on a Mac

Many Irish businesses are reluctant to consider alternatives to PCs, however these days any path to better productivity and lower cost of ownership is worth a fair chance. As Mac’s market share in the US and UK grows stronger and stronger, it seems the Mac is no longer the mysterious choice of the creative industry alone, and as with most trends this is likely to come to the fore here too. Therefore, it’s time to clear up those misconceptions and through knowledge, conquer fear.

Firstly, Mac is compatible with your PC network. It shares most files, networks and printers seamlessly with PCs. It runs the software you need – from accounting and finance to marketing, sales and productivity – you can get it all on a Mac.

Blaise Brosnan – does it again with a fantastic book Jack – Business lessons from Life

This hugely authentic ‘factional’ memoir of Jack reads with the authenticity of an autobiography. The book begins at a time when children were seen but not heard, when fathers said little and internalised their feelings – and mothers managed everything from scarce resources to the thoughts of their children. Blaise Brosnan, business mentor and trainer, uses the life story of Jack – his influencers and his influences – to give concrete advice that will benefit anyone working their way from the ground up. He sees into Jack’s mind and reflects his thoughts, revealing how he coped with life’s problems. Jack pays a price.
