Not Everyone Is The Same – Become The Brilliant You

April 8, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

Brilliant you

Recently I attended a Leadership Academy in Sydney where presenter Fiona Craig, who spoke about “Brilliant You”. Here are some points I noted from her presentation that I wanted to share with you: Everyone is NOT the same: we are all different · 1 billion users on Facebook · 400,000 on LinkedIn · 100,000,000 on Instagram […]



You Get What You Focus On…So Focus On What YOU Want!

March 7, 2016 | Vicki Writer

Multiple Brains

We have a little part of our brain called the Reticular Activating System (RAS) and it acts like a little antenna. Imagine it being just like Google – it’s a search engine. When we program something into our Reticular Activating System, it goes off into the universe in order to bring it into our reality. […]



Shareholder And Partnership Agreements – Essential To A Franchisee’s Longevity

January 19, 2016 | Simone Pentis

Is Franchising For You?

When looking at entering into a franchise with others, I always recommend the parties immediately get together after working out the relevant franchisee entity structure with their legal and accounting advisors, and have a lawyer work with them to create a partnership agreement or shareholder agreement, as appropriate. This assists to ensure that from the […]



Are You Feeling Small About Your Import Order?

January 18, 2016 | Lindy Chen

Select an import agent

If you are a small business owner, you have probably experienced feeling like an outsider when you visit a trade show in China.  Your thoughts are likely to be unfavorable.  Yes, those big box businesses sure know what they’re doing.  Look at those factory owners milling around the negotiating table with that importer, like they […]



The Psychology of Selling

January 15, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

Sales lessons learnt on the retail floor.

I recently had the opportunity to be a Brand Ambassador for a Supermarket. Ok… so it was demonstrating and promoting branded Iced Fruit Cake and Fruit Mince Tarts!! However, I made a conscious effort to make the 2 x 4 hour shifts standing on my feet, near the 4 degree fridge worthwhile. What I noticed […]



Turn The ‘To Do List’ Upside Down!

December 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

It's important as the year comes to a close to take time to spend quality time with loved ones, relax and recharge before you start planning for 2016.

Wow, another year has almost passed, and, if you are like me, you are wondering where the months have gone, and lamenting the tasks on the ‘to do list’ yet to be completed! But take heart, and look at the list from the reverse perspective: look at what you’ve managed to accomplish for the year, […]



The Franchisee Structure – Get It Right

December 15, 2015 | Simone Pentis

Taking the time to get your Franchisee structure  right, could save you more than just money in the long run.

The franchisee entity can take many forms, varying from individual sole trader, partnership, joint venture, trust, corporate and/or mix of these structures. While most franchisees tend to operate as a corporate structure, what is the best structure will depend on the personal circumstances of those who will make up the franchisee entity and any franchisor […]



What’s The Secret To Success?

December 8, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Surround yourself with experts and entrepreneurs that can become your mentors.

Often people think there is a secret to other people’s success – whether that be personally or professionally. Well, I am a great advocate for personal (and business) development or improvement. I believe THAT this is the secret to people’s success! I am constantly reading positive or business books, listening to audios (via podcasts, Soundclouds […]



How to Adapt Your Communication for Better Results

December 1, 2015 | Vicki Writer

Listening to others' communication style and adapting yours accordingly is vital to make a connection.

We are 100% responsible for all of our outcomes. As teachers, trainers, speakers, coaches, sales people and parents – we are responsible for every single outcome that we produce. If the client, the student, our son or daughter doesn’t get what it is we are talking about- that is not their fault. That is our […]



What is Overwhelm and How to Deal With It

November 30, 2015 | David Solomon

To overcome overwhelm, you need to learn the power of saying no

As a business owner there is just so much to do. Add to that our other life roles such as parent, partner, provider, lover, cook, cleaner, taxi-driver, coach, son or daughter etc. and it’s easy to see how and why we often feel overwhelmed. Overwhelm can feel confusing, crushing and paralysing. When you are in […]
