Time To Stop and Think…..

March 10, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Don't get caught up in the every day chores of life, make the most of what's important. Live your life with purpose and build stronger relationships.

Do you ever stop to think, really think, about how you spend your time? I mean, we are all so busy just doing; doing all the things that ‘need to be done’….. you know, the washing, the cleaning, meeting our familial and societal ‘obligations’, doing what is ‘expected of us’….. but WHY? How many times […]

Parental Leave and Flexible Working Arrangements Changes

April 7, 2014 | Mandy Cann

Do you really have the time, expertise or money to waste on costly insurance policy mistakes. Why would you do it yourself? Get Informed!

Employees get unpaid parental leave when a new child is born or adopted. Parental leave includes maternity leave (for mums), paternity leave (for dads and partners) and adoption leave as well as other types of special leave. The key changes that were effective from the 1st July 2013 are listed below: Transfer to a safe job […]

Your Unconscious Blueprint Determines Your Level of Success

May 7, 2013 | Sue Lester

It's your 'unconscious blueprint' that decides whether you will eat two pieces of chocolate or the whole block.

Have you ever wondered why you don’t always feel as grown up and confident as you’d expect? Have you struggled to make significant changes in your life? Are relationships a battleground of hurt, outbursts and the silent treatment? The answer could be found in your unconscious blueprint.  This is the internal image you hold of […]

Sneezing Super Mum

June 7, 2012 | Sue Lester

Have you got your mindset right? You have to care for yourself before you can care for your business.

No one would choose to be ill, would they?   If you say, “I don’t have time to be ill,” are you also telling yourself you don’t have time to exercise, cook healthy meals, rest, sleep, have time out, breathing space, me time etc?  When you are rushing around, feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed, your body […]

Political Stunt or Common Sense

April 2, 2012 | admin

Personally I’m over the moon about Tony Abbott’s recent suggestion for the Productivity Commission to investigate and cost the viability of the current childcare rebate being extended to cover in-home care. Is it a political stunt aimed at courting female voters as PM, Julia Gillard put it or just a plain common sense approach to childcare […]

Babes are likely to be out of the budget

February 24, 2009 | admin

This week-end the Government will receive the Productivity Commission’s recommendations on Maternity Leave. It appears that after all the carry-on about this idea it’s not going to even get a look-in as part of the May Budget. It seems the Nation is not in an economic position to implement it – well the Government had heaps […]

Paid Leave – Competitive

November 24, 2008 | admin

Just as we’re finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in regards to taxpayer-funded Paid Parental Leave let’s hope the issue doesn’t end up in the too hard basket, conveniently moved to the side as yet another casualty of the current economic crisis. The final round of the public hearings of the […]

Lessons from the Lion Cage

August 13, 2008 | admin

My daughter Maddison (11) astounds me with what she picks up on. Whilst in Melbourne recently we visited the Melbourne Zoo.  We had a great time,  it’s an amazing experience. But at one point we were standing beside a couple and their two children, a boy maybe 5 and his older sister around 6. Maddison was in her usual form, she had her eyes […]
