August 11, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

As business owners, chances are that we need other people in our team to support us, whether these are employees, contractors, or other forms of outsourced support. And sometimes managing staff, with various personalities and a range of skill-sets can feel like herding goldfish, right? Too often, small business owners try to save money by […]



The Business of Living Life Authentically

August 10, 2017 | Caryn Walsh

Being personally empowered means being who you really are all the time. Successful women know who they are, they are happy ‘in their own skin’ and don’t feel the need to be the person others want them to be.  Neither do they mould their behaviour, personality or values to suit those with whom they hang around.

August 4, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

When I first started presenting, I wanted to share EVERYTHING I knew about the chosen topic. And I mean everything and in the one presentation!!!
