No Need To Dread Christmas

December 8, 2016 | Sue Lester

If you’re not feeling the Christmas spirit, it’s OK, and you are perfectly normal!  The imagery we see in Australia of what Christmas ‘should’ be is based on the American commercial ideal, and bears very little connection to reality.  (Especially the snowy bit!) Unfortunately, many see the huge gap between the glossy imagery of blithely […]



Is Your Message What You Intended?

November 18, 2016 | Sue Lester

Spot the mistake: “Dear info, would you like more customers?”   Oh, that’s right, I forgot to tell you I’d changed my name from ‘Sue’ to ‘info’, and sometimes call myself ‘admin’, depending on my mood. Seriously, why on earth would you trust or spend your money with a company which obviously has no idea […]



Repeat after me: “I Give Myself Permission……..”

November 7, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

As business owners, we often tend to be driven and passionate about what we do, and we generally have a ‘to-do’ list a mile long at any given time, right? It is easy to fall into the workaholic trap, working into the evenings and on the weekends, either because there is a seemingly-endless list of […]



Are You Missing in Action?

October 17, 2016 | Sue Lester

Have you gone missing in action?  Yes, you’re physically still present, rushing here and there, juggling home and work commitments.  Your family, staff and clients can see your body, but where are you? The real you, inside, the you that was always fun, with a taste for adventure in life – do you even remember […]



The Tenth Secret to Success & Inner Peace: Wisdom is Avoiding All Thoughts That Weaken You

October 7, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

As we round off our series of The Ten Secrets to Success and Inner Peace, by the late Dr Wayne Dyer, let’s look at one that is probably the easiest to do, in theory, yet quite difficult to do, in practice…. But be assured, this gets easier with time and practice, so please be patient! […]



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

September 26, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

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 […]



Are Men Undervalued?

September 23, 2016 | Sue Lester

As women in the Western world, as a whole we are growing stronger and more independent yearly. Our need (and respect) for men seems to be diminishing. So much seems to be taken for granted.  I was reflecting on this on the long flights back from Kenya recently.  I’ve just spent 3 weeks volunteering at […]



The 9th Secret To Success and Inner Peace: Treasure Your Divinity

September 20, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

As we continue to work through the late, great Dr Wayne Dyer’s 10 Secrets to Success and Inner Peace, we now come to the 9th Secret: to Treasure Your Divinity. To recognise and acknowledge your own uniqueness, your own true specialness. Do you notice the people walking down the street, particularly the younger people?  That […]



Managing Conflict in the Workplace: How Women Do It?

August 29, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

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 […]



Success and Inner Peace: The Eighth Secret: Treat Yourself As If You Already Are What You’d Like to Be

August 23, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

Why put off feeling successful, or happy, or wealthy, or lucky, or healthy? Feel it TODAY! Too often, we say that “when ……… happens, then I’ll feel successful / happy / wealthy / lucky / healthy.” But the key point that we are overlooking in this belief, is that it works the other way around! […]
