August 6, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen Brunner

Start setting acceptable boundaries around your time. Here's how to say 'no' instead of always feeling like you have to say 'yes'.

Hello again! How is your 9 square process coming along? I trust you are well on the way to creating the life of your dreams! Today I’d like to talk about boundaries; about establishing mental parameters to filter what we allow ‘in’ to our time and space. I touched earlier on the point that we […]

Welcome back! Let’s continue on the journey of designing our own ‘Big Picture’, our road-map for creating the life we desire.

July 4, 2014 | Sarah Savvas

Get you staff excited about training. Here's 3 ways to make your training sessions more engaging.

Corporate training has seen massive growth in the past three years, with training expenditures exceeding $130 billion worldwide. The reasons are due to both the economic recovery, as well as businesses discovering vast gaps in their employees skill sets. Although most companies understand the need for ongoing training, many have difficulty getting their workers excited […]

June 16, 2014 | Pix Jonasson

Ring your insurance broker TODAY and make sure that your business insurance policy does include Tax Audit protection.

You may be new in the speaking business or a well established whichever, however or whatever, you’ve got to know how to keep your business alive during economic recessions.  Anytime the cash flow in a business, large or small, starts to tighten up, the money management of that business has to be run as a […]

Last time, we discussed drawing up your ‘Life’ in a 9-square grid, supporting you to make mindful choices of how to best optimise your time and energy to create the life you desire.

Are You And Your Business Ready For Growth?

May 28, 2014 | Sarah Savvas

Expanding your business? Don't get too excited until you have run all the figures and considered the true costs.

The thought of expanding your business from a small business to a larger entity is something that drives many business owners. But it requires careful planning to get it right. Any small business owner who’s tasted success in some form, will undoubtedly have thought about the prospect of expansion. Rapid business growth can be an […]



Have You Seen These New Features on LinkedIn?

May 9, 2014 | Robyn Henderson

Don't discount the value of using LinkedIn as an effective networking tool for your business.

LinkedIn’s mantra is do more, better. Not a bad mantra as they continually upgrade and change their systems. The latest change is one of the better ones, I believe. At least once a week you are probably receiving a summary of all the people who have changed jobs, are having a birthday or having a […]

April 30, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen Brunner

Use these strategies and techniques to create your very own 'Big Picture' journal.

Today I’d like to share with you a ‘magical’ strategy I devised many years ago, which has supported countless women to overcome the constant juggle and struggle of managing the many and varied roles of our busy lives. You will need two things: a ‘special’ journal – one that’s new and nice and that you’ll enjoy writing […]



Protecting Your Most Valuable Asset – Your People (Part 2)

April 22, 2014 | Sarah Savvas

The secret to business success is hiring staff who have the right skills and a 'can do' attitutde.

Second only to the difficulty of accessing capital, the biggest complaint I come across from business owners is about finding and keeping good employees. Good employees are, without a doubt, the most valuable asset any company can have. And when times are tough, it is more important than ever to get the most out of […]



Are You Ready to Start Building Your Franchisor Foundations?

April 9, 2014 | Simone Pentis

Don't hit the start button on your Franhcise operation until you do your homework.

Before you go to print on your new ‘flash’ advertising that you are now offering franchises or sign on your first franchisee, you should have commenced laying down your franchisor foundations. What makes up your foundations may not be a simple matter and I strongly recommend getting a lawyer and an accountant, with substantial franchising […]
