So whats in my briefcase ? Well HMRC,IRS and a few other organisations would love to look in the files but that’s another story !!!
First and most important is my Midori Traveller’s notebook which I use for my bespoke version of bullet journal. The pen with it is my trusty Franklin Covey – “cheap as chips “ but a wonderful day-to-day work tool, and worth its weight in gold as far as I am concerned .
I keep a separate notebook insert for every client, loading those I need for the working day ahead the evening before. All others are stored in a box in my office – a simple yet effective system .
Along with my notebook I keep a blue-tooth keyboard that links to my Blackberry Q10 smartphone , a great combination and one that enables me to do away with a laptop for most working days .
Next is my Olympus Dictaphone – now getting on a bit it has to be said, but still a simple to use and trusted friend. I love the three folders option – brilliant for my line of work.
Then we come to my very cheap solar-power calculator. Well over ten years old and still going strong. A firm favourite, the keys are a joy to use .
Completing my pens are a set of Parker ballpoint and pencil which my late mother gave me and my black Biro/knife that I use as a letter opener .
Other items you see include spare cartridges , bulldog clips , sticky notes etc
