a good mother is someone always with their children…says who?

A most interesting article in TheAge this morning by Jacinta Tynan, (even if it is called “Rebecca Gibney and other mums on juggling work after baby“) discussing the whys and wherefores of working mothers and part-time jobs etc, and the new Australian legislation that came in earlier this year. Apart from the fact that I don’t get the whole juggling thing! I know, call me crazy, but what’s with the juggle?…the key line in the article for me is the following… …Part of the problem, Broderick says, is that most Australians have a deeply held cultural belief that a good…

the world’s richest self-made women…

now this is an interesting article in TheAge.com this morning… …in 1998 Meg Whitman took a leap of faith and accepted a job as chief executive of eBay, then a small tech firm with 30 employees. The payoff was equity in the burgeoning company. Thanks to that decision, Whitman soon joined the ranks of the 1011 billionaires in the world. Rarer still, she’s one of just 14 female billionaires in the world right now who earned their fortunes, rather than inherited them. The richest of them is China’s Wu Yajun, worth $3.9 billion and ranked 232nd in the world in…

A Serial Entreprenuer talks about Achieving Predictable Success

For changethis.com by Les McKeown As a serial entrepreneur who has personally launched over 40 businesses, and as a consultant and coach to hundreds of business leaders, I’ve come to realize that the ‘growth code’ is out there, in plain view for anyone who knows where to look. There is indeed a code, a pattern, a DNA if you will, to achieving predictable success. The difficulty is that because most business leaders work in a limited number of business environments during their career, they don’t have the opportunity to see the pattern recur often enough to successfully decode it….read on…

The Four-Letter Word That Makes You and Your Work Irresistible…

For ChangeThis.com By Mark Sanborn Some years ago I wrote a book about an extraordinary individual who loves his work. My editor at the time deleted the word love every place I used it. Instead, he suggested using the phrase ‘generosity of spirit.’ ‘Why not love?’ I inquired. ‘Because the word love freaks out businesspeople,’ he responded. I couldn’t agree more (great title too!) Do you agree? read on…

Mass Mingling… new services? = new businesses…

The latest and greatest from trendwatching.com; well worth reading… Long gone are the days when ‘online’ was synonymous with social isolation and loneliness. In fact, we’re now witnessing the exact opposite: technology is driving people to connect and meet up en masse with others, in the ‘real world’. It makes for an interesting, easily-digested trend, begging to be turned into new services for your customers… continue If there are new services to be provided, that has to lend itself to new business options as well surely? As you read through this article, think about what your business is doing now,…

TEMplate – Wealth Propulsion; Doesn’t That Sound Like Fun…

Which is why I’m going… come and join me! And you know what, it won’t cost you a cost, just your time… It’s Chris Howard’s new event called The Wealth Propulsion Intensive coming up in a capital city near you (Fri night, Saturday and Sunday). The event has just been announced, and it looks so interesting to me so I thought I’d not only go myself, but also share it with you. Having been to a number of Chris However events before, I thought I’d go and check out his new one; just in case it’s something that the entrepreneurial…

I’m one of only 3% of $1mil revenue+ Women-Owned Businesses…whoa!

I’m one of only 3% of $1mil revenue + women-owned businesses. How’s that? Isn’t that amazing! Actually, that places me in rather exclusive, but fairly lonely, territory really. How do I know this? SHARON G. HADARY for the Wall Street Journal shares some great insights with her latest article “Why Are Women-Owned Firms Smaller Than Men-Owned Ones?”. (The statistics come from this article also.) The phenomenal growth of women-owned businesses has made headlines for three decades—women consistently have been launching new enterprises at twice the rate of men, and their growth rates of employment and revenue have outpaced the economy….
