Ten things to tell your friends about an independent Scotland
Now we know the date of Scotland’s independence referendum, make yourself this promise:
Do not wake up the day after the vote and wish you could have done more.
So what can you do now to help us win on 18 September, 2014?
A Yes vote could prompt a surge of interest from overseas organisations wanting to visit the world’s newest country.
This is the view of John Strachan, managing director of Edinburgh-based events management company Maximillion.
Writing in Conference and Incentive Travel Magazine to mark one year until the referendum, Mr Strachan says there could be a "positive immediate response" after a Yes vote.
Since the launch of the Yes Scotland campaign last year, I have travelled the length and breadth of the country, from Stornoway to Stranraer, from Dunoon to Dundee. During the course of my travels, I have spoken to thousands of people at a variety of venues, including town halls, schools, community centres and miners’ welfare clubs.
Scotland has got what it takes - it's how we use our wealth that counts.
A Yes vote is an opportunity to make Scotland”s vast wealth work better for everybody who lives here, Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, said today.
“As individuals, as families and as a nation, Yes is a chance to create a more prosperous country using our vast wealth to the benefit of all,” he said.
