Shareholder And Partnership Agreements – Essential To A Franchisee’s Longevity

January 19, 2016 | Simone Pentis

Is Franchising For You?

When looking at entering into a franchise with others, I always recommend the parties immediately get together after working out the relevant franchisee entity structure with their legal and accounting advisors, and have a lawyer work with them to create a partnership agreement or shareholder agreement, as appropriate. This assists to ensure that from the […]



Plan Ahead – Bring Purpose and Direction To 2016

January 13, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

Foundations

Another new year! Another new beginning! We all love the idea of a fresh start, a chance to re-evaluate our lives, and the opportunity to draw a psychological line in the sand and leave behind the baggage and mistakes of the past year. So, draw a line in the sand, step over it, and spend […]



Turn The ‘To Do List’ Upside Down!

December 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

It's important as the year comes to a close to take time to spend quality time with loved ones, relax and recharge before you start planning for 2016.

Wow, another year has almost passed, and, if you are like me, you are wondering where the months have gone, and lamenting the tasks on the ‘to do list’ yet to be completed! But take heart, and look at the list from the reverse perspective: look at what you’ve managed to accomplish for the year, […]



What is Overwhelm and How to Deal With It

November 30, 2015 | David Solomon

To overcome overwhelm, you need to learn the power of saying no

As a business owner there is just so much to do. Add to that our other life roles such as parent, partner, provider, lover, cook, cleaner, taxi-driver, coach, son or daughter etc. and it’s easy to see how and why we often feel overwhelmed. Overwhelm can feel confusing, crushing and paralysing. When you are in […]



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, […]



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 […]



How to Improve Your Focus to Increase Productivity

September 25, 2015 | Sue Davey

How to refocus and be more productive

Do you sometimes find yourself losing focus at work, finding it difficult to complete tasks? Improving your focus is a great way to get more done and be more productive. But being ‘in the zone’ all the time can be incredibly tiring. Daniel Goldman, author of Focus, captured in perfectly, “A failure to focus inward leaves […]



Unplugged!

August 6, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Unplug from technology and take time offline - away from the noise and rejuvenate yourself.

Emails, phone calls, text messages, Skype meetings, Facebook PMs, LinkedIn invitations, Twitter tweets…..and on and on it goes! Is there any break for our over-loaded mental processors? And what message you are sending your children or spouse, when you need to continually check your messages, rather than giving them your full attention? Do they tend […]



Do You Know Which Trademark Is Right For Your Business?

July 23, 2015 | Binh Rey

Protecting your brand with trademarking is so important to all businesses large and small.

Everyone has an opinion on what a trademark is when asked, many say it’s a symbol, a logo, a word, a slogan and a brand.  And they would all be right! The reason many have an intuitive understanding of what a trademark represents is because since our birth, we’ve been bombarded with advertising and subconsciously linking […]
