Follow up to Attitude Magazine - Future of the Gay Scene

56-years should not be running a gay bar?

No - Gay Bar owners need to become BUSINESS men and not do it for the Sex, for the Dates, but do it for the Cliental.

My piece in Attitude Magazine the Future Issue Addresses this fact. There's TOO MUCH NOSTALGIA... TOO MUCH Desperation and not enough FACT. You're a business...if you need to Reinvent yourself to survive, you need to reinvent yourself. A business is not built on YOU, it's Built on your CUSTOMERS. So start looking after them, not your needs! HARSH, BUT TRUE!

Featured: Tripping blog - Tripper of the week

So here I am being featured as Tripper of the week with my very own interview.

Check out the full interview

Ryan C. Haynes has visited 28 countries and is adding even more to the list…

I grew up in Poole, Dorset, in the south of England, known as the Jurassic coastline, in the largest ‘natural’ harbour in the world, and the home of the boy scouts – Brownsea Island. I grew up in an area shrouded in mystery and draped in intrigue, there was always so much to see. I would often grab my bike and cycle 20 – 30 km into the countryside in the middle of summer. This is where I learned I loved to explore!
