I really do like Robert Preston's (Business Editor at the Beeb) style of writing, prob why I quote him so much.
But he's done a fascinating analysis of the expected 2014 recovery. Or is it?
BBC News - How fragile is the 2014 recovery?
So are we on the way back up, and business as usual for everyone, or are times still challenging?
I'm cautiously optimistic looking at our stats, small businesses genuinely seem to be spending more, which is a good sign, but nothing earth shattering, so I'm hoping for a continual growth through 2014, rather than expecting it.
What's anyone else's take. Is business booming and you've employed an extra 20 people, are things ticking over nicely, or is it still cautious times out there?
