When It Comes to Business Advice, WHO Do I Listen To?!

November 21, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Not everyone will agree with you

Have you ever noticed that when it comes to your life, everyone has an opinion?! That all of your friends and rellies are suddenly ‘experts’ on time management, parenting, business development, marketing, financial strategy, relationships, personal health and well-being, and so on? And yet, when you look at their lives, they aren’t really doing anything […]



The Joy Of Missing Out

November 20, 2014 | David Solomon

Unplug, stop the racket and you will soon feel the joy of missing out.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO). It’s where we over consume, overcommit, or generally overdo something because we can’t bear thinking we might miss out on something. It’s like going to a buffet where you appear to have unlimited choice of food. How much do you put on your plate? […]



Will Your Money End Up In The Right Hands?

November 3, 2014 | Janet Culpitt

All adults should be responsible and not leave a mess for others to have to handle on their death by ensuring they have a Will.

Do you have a Will ? It’s  an important part of your Financial Plan. Your Will is a document which states your wishes on how your property and assets (your estate) are to be distributed after your death. Wills are not just for the rich or elderly, anyone with a car, savings or sentimental items […]



I Need Business Insurance… Now What?

October 29, 2014 | Kate Fairley

Do you really have the time, expertise or money to waste on costly insurance policy mistakes. Why would you do it yourself? Get Informed!

Insurance is complicated. Even as an insurance expert I sometimes have to reread policy wordings to make sure I haven’t missed a particular clause or skimmed over an important term. There’s no consistency with coverage, with exclusions, the terminology used, even definitions of basic things like Storm can vary policy to policy. And something that’s […]



The ‘Big Rocks’ Story

October 27, 2014 | David Solomon

What ingredients is your 'jar of life' filled to the brim with? The choice is yours!

In my last blog I referred to ‘Big Rocks’. I love this story for what it teaches us about focus and priorities – so necessary for all of us with such busy lives and so many competing priorities! A philosophy professor came to his class carrying 5 items – a large, empty mayonnaise jar, 3 […]



What is a ‘Service Culture’ and What Does it Mean For Your Business?

October 24, 2014 | Sarah Savvas

You will be amazed at how your business will grow when you make it easier for customers to do business with you.

By definition, a ‘Service Culture’ is a culture within an organisation where customer satisfaction is the top priority. No business can stay in business without customers. How you treat or mistreat them determines how long your doors stay open. And bad service is a one way ticket to business failure. For many years, customer service […]



Time – The Most Valuable Currency We Trade With!

October 13, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Trading Time

Wow, it’s October already! Where does the year go?!!? Where does every month, week, day, hour and minute that you spend, actually GO??? It’s a trade-off, you see…. You are trading TIME for ACTIVITY, regardless of what the ‘activity’ may consist of. It’s not like money, where you can sit back and think about what […]



What Does PERFECT Mean to You?

October 6, 2014 | Janet Culpitt

What happens when you build your financial plans on the shifting sands instead of a solid foundation?

Are you ready to make smart decisions about money? Do you care about your family? Do you care about the future? Are you motivated to take some action? Do you want some direction? Most people want to “get ahead” financially and it can be passion and determination that drives you to reach your level of […]



Making Excellent Customer Service Your Mission

October 1, 2014 | Terri Mitchell AKA The Profit Frog

Is the Customer Service Mission Statement of your business clearly visible to all of your staff?

If your customer service is not delivered at its very highest, it absolutely hurts your business through fewer dollars spent at your registers, lack of word-of-mouth referrals, and worst of all, loss of customer loyalty – which ultimately means they are shopping at your competitor and that ought to ring alarm bells for you. You […]



Hurry Up and Wait

September 29, 2014 | David Solomon

Exhausted from the pressure of racing to deadlines? What's wrong with pacing yourself?

In my distant past I spent 2 years and 40 days in the Army (not that I was counting…much). One of the things that I remember very clearly was how we used be told to rush from place to place – literally running to get there. And when we did arrive to where we were […]
