    For more than 20 years I've been strongly associated with team building. I've now moved on to a new business of helping people write business plans.

    The way things are these days it seems that your association with what you do is deeper than ever. I have numerous forums to correct, links for the former business that will be lost and new links to create. There's no solution, I just have to do it.

    Has anyone else been on this particular journey before?

    I've not been there myself but I can appreciate that even a small change in URL and/or email address can have a massive knock-on effect on things if you're widely spread - and admin increases ten-fold. No wonder they call it the web!

    What made you change tack? :)

    Long story, I need some advice from you actually so I'll give you a call at some point. Suffice to say that I'm on phase two of my entrepreneurial journey.

    Oh yes, been there, done that. Sometimes I find links with my details on that are 10 years old, and some links are impossible to delete.

    I sympathise. This time, create a separate email folder for all the websites and networking sites you register with: if you need to make a change in the future, you know where to find all your details.

    Can you utilize the fact that you had a former career as a successful team building strategist in your new business? That way, if people discover old links, they know about your past experience already.

    We had a change of company name recently and this does cause it's problems. Hopefully I can trace most of the listings and directory entries,etc but I know I won't get them all.
    Juggling a few different email addresses is a pain but hopefully everyone will start using the new one soon!
