February 3, 2016 | David Solomon

Light Bulb Moment

At any time of the year it’s easy to feel that you aren’t where you think you should be. Perhaps you didn’t stick to your resolutions or make the changes you promised you would. Perhaps life’s events threw you a curve ball that changed your direction. But regret or anger at yourself isn’t productive. It’s […]

January 13, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

Foundations

Another new year! Another new beginning! We all love the idea of a fresh start, a chance to re-evaluate our lives, and the opportunity to draw a psychological line in the sand and leave behind the baggage and mistakes of the past year. So, draw a line in the sand, step over it, and spend […]

December 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

It's important as the year comes to a close to take time to spend quality time with loved ones, relax and recharge before you start planning for 2016.

Wow, another year has almost passed, and, if you are like me, you are wondering where the months have gone, and lamenting the tasks on the ‘to do list’ yet to be completed!

December 17, 2015 | Sue Lester

Use these tips to avoid the stress factor of Christmas.

The Christmas festive season is such an emotionally charged time for so many people.  On one hand you see all the happy family images in advertising, plus your dreams of a happy loving family & recharging holiday, and on the other hand you have reality.  Rushing here and rushing there, spend, spend, spend, more mouths […]



What is Overwhelm and How to Deal With It

November 30, 2015 | David Solomon

To overcome overwhelm, you need to learn the power of saying no

As a business owner there is just so much to do. Add to that our other life roles such as parent, partner, provider, lover, cook, cleaner, taxi-driver, coach, son or daughter etc. and it’s easy to see how and why we often feel overwhelmed. Overwhelm can feel confusing, crushing and paralysing. When you are in […]

Taking Time for Time Management

November 10, 2015 | Sue Davey

Operating in 'real time' is the key to improving your time management.

No doubt you’ve probably read up on time management, or you’ve attended a time management course and have tried to put all sorts of tips into practice, only to find that you still can’t get everything done that you need to do. But why is this? The answer is that you need to look at […]



What Percentage of The LinkedIn Australian Reach Would You Like?

June 3, 2015 | Robyn Henderson

LinkedIn Summary Update

I am always on the look out for articles about LinkedIn and other people’s opinions of the do’s and don’ts. So it was reassuring today to read the Sydney Morning Herald  and an article by Samantha Riley and see an article that was aligned with most of my views. Interestingly, the latest number of users […]

May 28, 2015 | Janet Culpitt

Investing in property for retirement

Being fellow networkers, thanks to WNA, I am sure you all realise the importance of connecting with others. It is also important with regards to your financial affairs. Networking has a definition of “the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions; specifically: the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business” (source merriam-webster.com).

Act now and set the tone for your outcomes in 2016. Choose your Word of the Year.

Happy New Year! I LOVE new years! It is like turning the page on a new notebook, seeing the fresh, crisp pages, just waiting for something inspirational and creative to flow onto its pages! New years are the perfect time to reflect on what’s working, and what’s not; and then to DO something about it! […]
