Letter from the editor.

Issue 1 is here to have another go at mixing the creative industries, the fun and the end of the world. A tricky task, I must admit, but one that seems to come naturally to us. I’ll have you know that we are not preppers, but it doesn’t take a prepper to see the writing on the wall. So let’s all stop stockpiling Pot Noodles and Krugerrand, and start driving change, as change is gonna come anyway.

THE FSC MAG’S RESIDENT BUSINESS UNCLE, JAMIL QURESHI, IS HERE TO HELP OLD AND NEW BUSINESSES WITH THEIR PROBLEMS.

We are a successful and proud 100-year-old business. We do things how we like them and we like how we do things - and it has always been that way. Our customers love us - the ones over 50 that is. Our employees love us and are very loyal - the ones over 50. But we have a problem with the kids (those customers and employees in their 40s and below) - or, as some call them the millionarnials. They are unhappy with us.
