Dear Apprentice and Lord Sugar,
You try to entice me with your funky 80’s tunes and take me back to the days where it was all about the over you could pull on the dance floor.
You try to entice me with showcasing business skills, allowing me to compare with other.
You give me hope that there is a fun way to lose my mummy tummy. There hasn’t been any swingaling in my hips for a long while…let me tell you!
Where has the fun, the passion and the innovation gone?
Please come back soon.
I miss you.
This weeks Apprentice flopped for me. Can you tell? The fitness challenge this week had me waiting for passion and enthusiasm. not only in any business routine but my own wanting of weight loss this week. On many levels this should have been the episode for me. I loved the retro idea, as an 80’s kids (well 70’s by a year ;)) things were so colourful, pop music was fabulous and funky. So why did this episode flop for me?
After reading this story about Pregnancy Zumba this week i was enthused for some new workout ideas. I’m not a gym bunny (well not anymore) and I would love to be able to do something fun with my daughter which would also benefit our health. I am not sure why either team did not pick up on yummy mummies or buggy fit or anything where mums or dads can workout with the kids. You’d think with talk of a baby boom every other week or even the huge amount of celeb pregnancies they’d be fishing for something niche rather than blah…
I have to say although the workout left me more couch potato than like a shaken bottle of diet coke (full of fizz) the pitches are getting better. I thought that Sterling were concise and confident regardless of any questions they had thrown at them.
Phoenix won but for me I thought they were so lucky Virgin thought through their idea and took it for the right market but for me that didn’t mean they were the winners…
Melody Hossaini (one of last years apprentices) came up with this memorable quote ‘Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.’ After one fan got this tattooed this week I am thinking maybe we all should be reaching a little bit further and not selling ourselves short.
Come on Apprentice – step it up!
