More Ideas Is Not The Solution

August 22, 2016 | Sue Lester

Good ideas will never help to grow your business if you don't actually implement any of them.

What if you already have what you need?  That secret to success has already appeared, but you missed it? The ironic thing about overwhelm from too much information, too many good ideas, is that it can result in the opposite – no ideas and feeling stuck.  So when you or your business is feeling sluggish […]



Take Your Business From Woe to WOW

August 16, 2016 | Vicki Writer

7 Signs You are Having a Good Year (even if It doesn’t feel like it)

August 12, 2016 | David Solomon

Having a good year

This time of year, many of us can be feeling as though we’re not where we think we ought to be by now. Maybe we didn’t stick to our resolutions or make the changes we envisioned for ourselves. Or perhaps we’re feeling stuck by certain life circumstances. But regret isn’t productive, so why be angry […]

Happy Workers

Effective leaders know that creating an environment where teams are happy is not just a nice idea, it is a critical business imperative. One study found that those happiest at work are a staggeringly 47% more productive at work compared with those who are least happiest, and, perhaps more importantly, 180% happier with life in […]

July 18, 2016 | Sue Lester

New Year New Plan

Whether you achieved great results last financial year, or less than desirable, this is the ideal time for a fresh start.  In the busyness of your business, it’s easy to fall into the trap of doing things the same way because it’s easier, a no-brainer.  Structures and systems are essential for growth, however they need […]



If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

July 11, 2016 | David Solomon

To reach any goal in business or life your WHY must be BIG enough to motivate you.

I secretly thought I would fail. Yes, I’ve had a pretty significant health transformation. (BTW, this blog is about more than health). It’s obvious just looking at my photos that I’ve lost a ton of weight. Of course it’s not just about the weight – it’s about how incredible I feel as a result of […]
