The secret to business success is hiring staff who have the right skills and a 'can do' attitutde.

Don’t you ever wonder what happened to the days when employees worked for one company for life or at least for the better part of their career, when companies treated employees like part of the family and employees were unwaveringly loyal to their employers?  With this era being as good as over, and with employees […]

February 27, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen Brunner

We all have the same amount of time - it's how you manage and plan that makes the difference to your outcomes.

January 30, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen Brunner

Here's some tips that will help keep your speaker business afloat during tough times.

One of the most valuable responses you receive from your customers is feedback. Good, bad or ugly, feedback is essential to any business. It provides you, the business owner, with insight into how your customers feel about doing business with you. Ignoring feedback can be costly; both in lost customers and opportunity, and it can […]



Boxing At Shadows?

July 2, 2013 | Sue Lester

If you keep punching at shadows instead of embracing change there's only one person who will get hurt. You!

How much of your stress is caused by struggling against change – in the weather, the flow of traffic, your husband folding the towels differently, and of course the bigger changes of ebbs and flows of income, client/customers needs, relationships, health and so on? Change is not merely necessary to life – it is life. – Alvin […]
