Set Goals For More Effective Time Management

March 26, 2015 | Sue Davey

Time for change in goal setting

Women have hectic lives and we are constantly under pressure to perform in every area of our lives; be the perfect mother, be the perfect wife, be the perfect employee and be the rock that holds everything together. We feel the pressure. It’s unrealistic and none of us can be perfect in every way. What […]



Why Customer Retention Should Be Your No. 1 Priority (Part 1)

March 11, 2015 | Sarah Savvas

It is not rocket science. Improved customer service = improved customer retention.

If you are spending thousands of dollars each year on sales and marketing strategies to attract new customers and clients, but are losing many of those customers through poor customer service, you are simply collecting water with a leaking bucket. With rising customer acquisition costs, businesses need to innovate and assume a proactive role in […]

March 6, 2015 | Simone Pentis

The boundaries are changing.  When designing and setting up territories for a franchise there are many factors that need taking into account.

Franchisors are now moving towards being more creative in how they design the types of territories they are now granting their franchisees. So long as overall there is value and benefit to both the franchisor and franchisee, franchise territories do not need to follow the prior traditional views of territories. This traditional view often equating […]



Customer Complaints Are a Golden Opportunity

February 11, 2015 | Sarah Savvas

Don't avoid customer complaints welcome them as an opportunity to make improvements in your business.

We all complain about difficult customers and try and avoid them at all costs. But, in fact, we should be seeking them out – they present us with a golden opportunity to improve our service. It’s the customers who are unhappy but don’t say anything that pose the real danger to your business. Customer complaints […]

It’s February already! And it feels like Christmas is just a distant memory… How are your New Year’s resolutions holding out? (Do you actually remember what they were?)

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 […]



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!

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 […]

Many of us begin to wind down from work and start ‘End of Year’ partying, gift shopping, and […]



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 […]
