Have a Mind That is Open to Everything and Attached to Nothing.

November 17, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Inner peace and happiness

As we celebrate the life of the amazing Dr Wayne Dyer, who gave so much to so many, and passed away suddenly on 30 August, it is fitting to revisit what I feel to be the essence of his work: ‘The 10 Secrets to Success and Inner Peace’. In his book of this same title, […]

Increase in Job Seekers According to Talent Trends

November 5, 2015 | Robyn Henderson

The Talent Trends 2015 shows interesting trends in job seeking.

I read an interesting article in this week’s Weekend Australian about the increase in active job seekers. As a small business, from time to time I am offered short term writing contracts or special projects – so I am always curious to keep my finger on the pulse of the job seeker and unemployment figures. […]

Leverage Your Time

November 3, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Leverage is the secret to time management.

We’re all busy people.  Some people, though, are busier than we’d ever imagine, yet are somehow are able to stay on top of things so well they seem to go about their life so casually, while we struggle to produce good work and maintain a household. What’s their secret? Why do they seem to have […]

Why the Annual Code Update is More Important Than Ever Before

October 19, 2015 | Simone Pentis

Ensure you review and diarise the new Franchising Code of Conduct.

For most franchisors 30 October is a significant date. Given that most franchise systems within Australia follow the Australian financial year of 1 July to 30 June, then 30 October represents the expiry of the 4-month period from the franchisor’s last financial year whereupon franchisors must generally have ensured that they have updated Disclosure Documents […]

Tribute to Dr Wayne Dyer – Secrets to Success and Inner Peace

October 7, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

We can all learn from the late Dr Dyer's wisdom on how to find happiness and inner peace.

On 22nd and 23rd of August I spent two awe-inspiring days in Melbourne, in the presence of world-renowned teacher and spiritualist, Dr Wayne Dyer. On Sunday 30th August, this wonderful leader was gone from this world. What words can possibly fill this gap? Despite the shock and sadness of the sudden and unexpected departure of […]

Smart Systems Get Results On LinkedIn

October 6, 2015 | Robyn Henderson

LinkedIn is the 'rock band' of smart systems of connections.

Last night I went to see the ’70s band – Blood, Sweat & Tears – 10 amazing musicians making up this legendary jazz/rock band from the States. Initially I was wondering how the lead singer could possibly look so young because if he was part of the original band he would have to be aged late […]

Treat Your Speaking Business Like Flying in A Plane

October 2, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Speaker survival

Often when building your speaking business, you may get consumed by others who want to take time and energy from you and they constantly ask you to speak here and there, they want you help them or do something for them. You need to STOP!  Before you rush into things or help anybody else, you […]

Building Social Capital and Emotional Fitness

October 1, 2015 | Vicki Writer

Inner peace and happiness

We have the power inside of us to figure out what inspires us and what makes us happy and we are able to cultivate those emotions. 50-80% of our own contentment is completely within our own control. The brain does not differentiate between what is real and what is imagined. We will trigger all of […]

It Might Be Time To Ditch The Business Plan

September 30, 2015 | David Solomon

Ditch complicated business planning

Before you get too carried away, it’s not about not having any sort of business plan at all. What I am saying is that you shouldn’t spend too long creating the “perfect” business plan. Many businesses get bogged down writing huge documents that never get implemented. They simply gather dust in a drawer or sit […]

All Meaning Is Context Dependent And Nothing Has Any Meaning Except For The Meaning That We Give It.

September 1, 2015 | Vicki Writer

Choosing the right blog platform

How empowering is it to know that we are in control of all of the meanings that we have attached to events, situations and memories from our past. Nothing has any meaning except for the meaning that we give it. The meanings that we attach to certain situations are either useful or completely useless. Some […]
