Gotta love when creative minds get together! Today I met up with one classy dame who not only knows her stuff but who is also very open about sharing. Whilst I didn’t know her that well, I suspect we are going to get to know each other a whole lot better!
If the seed of an idea we were drawn to today germinates, watch out world, here we come.
Why not go for ‘world domination’ I say. OK, maybe not, but get a band of merry folk together and let their creative juices flow, all idea-hell could break loose… excellent. Bring it on!
Sunday (yesterday) I had the good fortune to be asked to attend and MC the 3rd Annual “Judith Horsnell Mothers Day” lunch. It all started like this…
Here’s the background…
A driven and caring entrepreneurial mother, who wanted to buy something specific in Australia for her child, couldn’t find what she was looking for. So she took it upon herself to rectify that problem.
To her credit, she morphed into a woman business owner (during her long-service leave break) and has turned this need into the most delightful shop, not only addressing what she needed to at the time but also making many, many more children happy, very happy since.
All hail to her…
I know, there’ll be a number of you thinking “I’ve done the same thing, what’s the big deal?” Are you now the leader in your field? Do you have the major retailers sending people to you? Are you now doing close to 7-figure turnover? Have you built your Mother of a Business into an Asset, ready to take to the market?
if not, there’s the difference…
Regardless of size, or what you call your business, company, organization…
“More than 80 percent of improvement efforts fail to make a discernible difference in overall business performance, regardless of the improvement methodology in use.
The reason isn’t a flaw in the methodologies, but a flaw inside of companies. Organizations in all sectors fail to meet their full potential because of self-inflicted chaos. I’m not talking about acute cases of chaos brought on by external events over which a company has little control, such as sudden supply chain disruptions, new regulations, or economic downturns. I’m talking about chronic long-term chaos brought about by ambiguity, lack of focus, inconsistency—habits and behaviors that organizations can control but choose not to.
Self-inflicted chaos is an insidious disease that must be addressed before any meaningful improvement in performance can be achieved.”

I could not let this day go by without acknowledging International Women’s Day.
It is with great pleasure that I re-introduce my newly re-formulated and reworked web site. I’m really pleased with it, I hope you are too!
Please visit and make yourself acquainted. I’d love your feedback too.
As Viv has discovered, there’s a lot more to being a successful Mother and building a Mother of a Business than just dreaming about it every day. It’s about behaving in a manner which builds a genuine business. It’s about having the confidence to do whatever you dream of achieving. And most of all it’s about Mothering as you want PLUS earn what you need to earn (and a whole lot more!).
So much so, she featured on p21 of the recent Green Guide in The Age newspaper.
Viv came to join my Mothers Group after previous attempts at really firing up The Web on Wheels. It would appear that this time she has done just that! Congratulations.
the entrepreneurial mother® Mothers Group has been developed in response to an overwhelming number of requests asking me to share my knowledge. However the majority wanted more than just help. They wanted to transform their Mother of a Business, they wanted to start achieving. And they wanted real backing to do it.

You HAVE permission to Engage! Notice, the emphasis is on the word ‘have.’ That’s because you already possess your own permission to engage. I’m not giving it to you. In fact, I can’t. You’ve always had it; you just have to release it. It’s up to YOU to make the decision to engage.
Once you have given yourself permission, you are Cleared Hot to create realities from possibilities beyond your expectations.
What does Cleared Hot mean? Well, in military terms, it means you have permission to fire your weapons on your target. During training that means you’re shooting at wooden tanks or old worn out tires. In real combat, you’re firing on the enemy. An enemy that in my case was trying to shoot my attack helicopter out of the sky.
In civilian life, Cleared Hot is the process of acting on a Breakthrough Mentality (BTM).
