How Many Brains Do You Need To Be Successful?

March 10, 2016 | Sue Lester

Multiple Brains

“How many brains do you need to be successful?” is somewhat of a trick question. You could argue that one well nourished, trained and focussed brain is enough, or that you need many brains to create a supportive team around yourself. Actually, from the individual perspective, to be living more meaningfully, fully and authentically you need […]

Are You Programming Yourself For What You Want…or Don’t Want?

February 11, 2016 | Sue Lester

Franchise owners need legal advice

Whether you are aware of it or not, every moment of every day, with every thought and feeling you have, you are programming yourself.  Consider for a moment what you’ve been thinking or feeling about already today… whatever you were focussing on is on it’s way. (‘Oops!’ or ‘Yay!’ ?) So were you focussed on […]

‘Tis The Time of Giving…but Not Until You Bleed!

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 […]

Are You a Glass-half Full Person?

September 7, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Playful communicators

Have you ever noticed how some people always seem to be happy and jovial, and that others like to be around them? And then there are others, who, when asked how they are, always seem to have something to gripe about? Which type are you? It is simply a CHOICE! Yes, a choice. Far too […]

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 […]

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!

Parental leave includes maternity leave (for mums), paternity leave (for dads and partners) and adoption leave as well as other types of special leave.

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

Unplug from technology and take time offline - away from the noise and rejuvenate yourself.

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 […]
