How Can You #BeBoldForChange When It Doesn’t Feel Right?

March 10, 2017 | Sue Lester

#BeBoldForChange is the 2017 International Women’s Day (and beyond) theme, but how do you step up and take bold action for change, if you don’t feel bold inside? That internal fear and self-doubt keep many women locked into dead-end jobs, toxic or limp relationships and negativity. A definition of courage is to feel the fear […]



The Year Ahead….and a Year in Review

January 26, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

January. The time of year when many of us set our goals for the year….and berate ourselves over what we did not accomplish the previous year. Whilst goal-setting is a good thing, it is important not to later use it as a means of reflecting on what you failed at, on what you didn’t achieve. Many […]



Reduce Speed Now – What’s Around You?

November 21, 2016 | David Solomon

This was the flashing road sign that I saw on my way to a meeting one morning. I spontaneously laughed out loud. You see, I was crawling along in a traffic jam and really couldn’t have been going any slower unless I was stopped. I’ve always avoided peak hour traffic as much as I possibly […]



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 […]



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! […]



The First Step Is the Hardest

September 29, 2016 | David Solomon

So what is it and why is it so hard? In this post I am talking about health and fitness, but really this is a metaphor for life. When I started on my weight loss journey it seemed impossible to me. I had an imperative but it was also a big and audacious goal. I […]

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 […]



More Ideas Is Not The Solution

August 22, 2016 | Sue Lester

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 […]
