Travel can provoke the need to Change…

Travel is one of the best things for clearing your mind and really being able to concentrate on what makes your heart sing. By default, in doing so can also upset the current apple cart, specifically if you realise that what you’re doing is not cutting it, i.e. it’s time for a change. 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…

when a gathering of influential women leaders get together…

  WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GATHER JUST ABOUT EVERY INFLUENTIAL WOMAN TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT WORKING FAMILY ISSUES? THIS… “Setting the tone for the Summit, President Barack Obama penned a blog for the Huffington Post in which he wrote, “Family leave, childcare, flexibility and a decent wage aren’t frills. They’re basic needs. They shouldn’t be bonuses–they should be the bottom line.” Read on Most entrepreneurial mothers have become just so because a job environment could not address their needs/wants over: length of time, quality of hours, etc (family leave) cost and availability of childcare working hours to do what needs…

“the glorification of busy” – are you guilty?

Let’s Stop the Glorification of Busy from Guy Kawasaki Thank you to Guy Kawasaki and Adriana Huffington for this enlightened SlideShow… please pay attention. A great reminder for us all (Yes, me included), about this nothing of “busyness”. Does anyone ever tell you, when asked how they are, that they are not busy? “Oh, I’ve got a lot on”, or “busy, busy, busy”, or “always” seem to be a fairly typical type response when asked “how goes it?” STOP

how’s the investment of your Time, Energy and Money working for you?

When I first meet Business Owners who want to talk shop, I eventually ask them 3 basic questions: is your Business making money? is your Business making a profit? are you paying yourself? In 90% of cases, I do not get a resounding YES to all of these. What I usually get is a “oh yes” to #1, “sometimes” to #2, and “not really” to #3. If the answer to all 3 questions is not a big, fat, hearty YES, then what are you really investing your time, energy and money in? “We are all investors. We invest our time,…

rule of thumb: if you think you can recover if it goes poorly, DO IT

“How To Be An Imperfectionist”, an article worth reading… “It’s worth it to get scratched in the face if you reach the treasure chest. You can’t reach your proverbial treasure chest without having a problem on the way there. The world has too many variables that can mess you up. You are imperfect, and will create your own problems too. Imperfection isn’t glorious and I’m not glorifying it—it’s just the way forward. There isn’t another way, and when you refuse to believe it, you’ll be the person who turns away from opportunity, looking for an alternate trail that has no thorns.”

inspiration made simple…

“Inspiration is the most used and abused word in our daily existence. Whether it is business, politics, sports, or any other endeavor of life, inspiration is considered to be the panacea or silver bullet which can transform personal lives and propel organizations to unbelievable heights. No wonder, everyone (individuals and organizations alike) is constantly seeking this transformational wonder and are expending an enormous amount of money and time in this search.
