Gen Y Work Perspective: Why Is a Work-life Balance Needed?

September 26, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

work life balance

The idea of a balance between work and life has become almost foreign in the 21st century. With technology’s ubiquity, constantly tackling work requests online and over the phone has become commonplace for a portion of the population even when they are vacationing. For others, their social and personal lives have a much more prominent […]



Managing Conflict in the Workplace: How Women Do It?

August 29, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

Discover how to deal with bullying and workplace conflicts in a more productive way.

Workplaces are becoming increasingly more fast-pasted and globalized, which increases the opportunities for professional development, but also increases the likelihood that conflicts will occur within the workplace. Conflicts are difficult challenges women face in the workplace because of how men and women approach conflict situations. But there are constructive ways that conflict can be managed […]

June 20, 2016 | Sue Lester

Breathing for success

Do you feel like you’re suffocating under all the To Dos?  Perhaps you’re exhausted and frustrated from repeating yourself until you’re blue in the face?  Does it feel a long time since you’ve come up for air?  Our language reflects what is happening at that deeper, unconscious level, in this case your autonomic system which […]



Brand Australia – Where Do Women Stand?

January 21, 2016 | Emelye Lovell

Move over boys -  Aussie sportswomen are enjoying a dream run and enhancing brand Australia.

“Where the bloody hell are you?” The world is still cringing and mildly offended at this last attempt at an Australian branding campaign. Well, not the last campaign—the most recent is actually the ‘there’s nothing like Australia’ campaign which nobody really remembers. After Lara Bingle’s bikini-clad tourism bingle of 2006, it’s no surprise Tourism Australia […]



Are You Thinking About Leaving Your Other Half?

December 14, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Reviewing your finances is important following a separation.

Of course you have, we all have, and many have actually taken the plunge. One of a woman’s biggest concerns in this situation is money – particularly if this is not something that she has taken care of before. Even if she is reasonably on top of her finances, many of the arrangements that have […]



Straight From The Jockey’s Mouth: What are the implications of ‘get stuffed’?

November 14, 2015 | Emelye Lovell

Michelle Payne

“Get stuffed.” These two words, combined with a history-making moment in Australian sport, ensured a nation paid even more attention to a remarkable achievement. When Michelle Payne won the Melbourne Cup astride outsider Prince of Penzance at Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday in November, she made a statement in more ways than one. The […]



Women Need Financial Advice for Women

November 13, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Women need different financial advice from the male-dominated financial world.

Women are pretty vulnerable when it comes to money – we need more but earn less. Our security can only come through understanding our own needs then gaining the knowledge and confidence to address them. As most financial planners are men, it comes as no surprise that financial plans are built around men. It’s time […]



6 Reasons Why Women Avoid Managing Their Finances

October 15, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

There is no reason why women should not handle their finances.

I don’t have time This is the most common excuse. Between a career, managing the house and looking after the kids we don’t have a second spare. To put having no time in perspective, it’s like saying “I just don’t get a chance to buy the pill”. It is a pretty high risk approach. My […]



Women in Branding: Where Are They?

August 19, 2015 | Emelye Lovell

Women need different financial advice from the male-dominated financial world.

At a recent branding and advertising industry conference, I watched on as four heads of creative agencies spoke on the topic, ‘What Does the Modern Agency Look Like?’ Whilst their answers varied, one answer spoke volumes: they were all men. When a brazen female audience member pointed out this embarrassingly obvious fact, they squirmed, each […]



Does The Truth Really Hurt?

July 16, 2015 | Leo Eliades

Does the truth really hurt

I can recall over the years many conversations in one context or another referring to the truth and there being a pain associated to it. I am sure you can recall these conversations and thoughts as well. Does the truth really hurt? Or have we been misled all these years and is there something missing? […]
