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.

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?

July 23, 2015 | Binh Rey

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 […]

July 2, 2015 | Vicki Writer

Spend some time pondering on what things in life make you feel the happiest?

I have spent a significant amount of time in the last 12 months researching and studying the emerging science of positive psychology and my findings have been fascinating.

Revitalise your business: Surrender the old and allow the new to flow into your business and life.

Please read Part 1 first if you haven’t read it yet! …So my 2015 word of the year had become quite apparent. It needed to be one of the many synonyms that indicate letting go. Eventually I decided on the word “SURRENDER”. I chose SURRENDER as it is a passive process of just letting go, […]

Higher Purpose business

Brand ambassadors are the people who sing your organisation’s praises at every opportunity – to anyone who will listen.
