Over the 2015-15 break, I was most fortunate enough to spend time in Antarctica. Talk about getting away from it all! But as a business owner, I also appreciate how tricky it is to be able to arrange time away like this, amongst other things. Whilst I didn’t…

I spent it working with a friend and colleague of mine, who owns a franchise business reliant on independent practitioners. Together with her business development colleague, we went over a number of scenarios to improve the booking rates of her practice. But the one phrase that was repeated over and…

Given your new world “pull factor” order, it has no doubt changed even more dramatically hasn’t it?. So much so that you are being invited to share your story with others.
