How To Plan Your 2015 Foundations

January 19, 2015 | Janet Culpitt

Planning your business strategies and foundations for 2015

A new year begins so it’s time for all business owners take time to do some serious planning. It’s a good idea to spend a day or two preparing your business plan and then take some time off, to digest your plans, and then come back into the office refreshed with a new direction, ready […]



Exercise: How to Discover your Personal Brand & Strengthen Your Business Brand

January 12, 2015 | Emelye Lovell

Branding

This is an opportunity for you to reveal your personal brand image being portrayed to the world. It may be different than you think or even want. It’s a simple, enlightening exercise you can do from your bed when thinking of reasons not to get up. You’ll need: your natural environment, pen and paper, intrapersonal […]



A New Year – A New Page!

January 8, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

It's a new year. Take action now and get your goals and plans for the year ahead in place.

Happy New Year! I LOVE new years! It is like turning the page on a new notebook, seeing the fresh, crisp pages, just waiting for something inspirational and creative to flow onto its pages! New years are the perfect time to reflect on what’s working, and what’s not; and then to DO something about it! […]



Planning a Balanced 2015 – Business and LIFE!

December 12, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Get some balance in 2015

As 2014 draws to a close, many of us are doing a number of things: stressing about Christmas preparations; looking forward to some family time and days off work; starting to wonder what 2015 may bring and what we should plan for next year; and dwelling on how many things we have yet to tick-off […]



The New Code – Changing Franchising From 1 January 2015

December 10, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Franchisees need to be aware of changes that could take place from 1 January 2015.

The Franchising industry is about to go through another major change. The final version of the new Franchising Code of Conduct (“New Code”) together with the regulation repealing the existing Franchising Code of Conduct (“Old Code”) have been released and are now moving through the process of being tabled into the houses of parliament.

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 […]
