Brilliant video showing how Tesco became the no.1 online retailer in Korea by setting up virtual stores in subway stations. These ‘stores’ consist of large posters representing shelves of products with QR codes for commuters to browse and purchase on the go.
I’ve been deliberately quiet on this topic, but now it’s time to put it out there! A few months ago a friend and I (both parents to young children) were discussing how the financial education given to 4-11 yr old’s just wasn’t cutting it. We also both agreed that kids should understand savings, interest, debt and alike at a young age while having fun. It was from this conversation we came up with the concept of Pocket Pound. We spent the next few month (evenings mainly) creating a pocket money management book that incorporated the main concepts of good money management. After the trials and tribulations of print design and outsourcing production to China, we finally received the first 1,000 this week. I’ll write about the ups and downs of creating a physical product and our aspirations and plans in later blog posts, but for now I simply present you with Pocket Pound.

Why does Manhattan get all the fun? These ‘being spaces’ or more broadly, ‘creative spaces’ for the connected workforce are a great idea. I rent a 4 person office nr Ramsgate (most of the time it’s just me in there) and would happily trade it for a selection of spaces like this if they were available.
