Want Your Business to Thrive? Rediscover Your Spirit of Adventure.

February 21, 2017 | Sue Lester

You may be thinking, “I don’t have TIME for adventure! Who’ll do all the work while I swan off to the Himalayas?”  Or perhaps even the mere idea of “adventure” is exhausting?  The thing is, adventure comes in many forms, and it’s exactly what you need to get over the relentless grind and stress. The […]



I Don’t Have Time To Publish a Book!

February 20, 2017 | Dyan Burgess

The key to any new project is to prioritise its importance. There are times in our lives when we really don’t have time to take on a new project. If this is the case for you right now, it’s probably best to put your book on hold. However, if you’re really keen to get your […]



Speakers – Being Prepared

February 9, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

At a recent function where I was the MC, I was given a pretty rudimentary ‘Run Sheet’ from my client. In fact, I was told I was to start at 12:45pm and as it turned out, I was actually “on” from 12:00pm. This obviously came as a surprise to me!. However, I also had to […]



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 […]

You Don’t Have to Come Home Empty Handed from your First China Buying Trip

October 6, 2016 | Lindy Chen

I can imagine some entrepreneurs consider an initial exploratory visit to China as a pleasure trip, mixed with some business.  The trip can be treated as sunk costs in starting a business, an investment in the learning process or par for the course.  If however, you want to make the most out of your initial […]



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 […]



4 Steps To Starting The Financial Year Afresh

July 18, 2016 | Sue Lester

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 […]



Break-through Job Search Strategy

May 3, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

The unemployment rate in Australia is at a little more than 6 percent, which means that more than 1.3 million people are out of jobs. Employers know how many people are in competition with one another, so they know that they can take their time finding the perfect candidates for the positions they offer. As […]
