The ‘Big Rocks’ Story

October 27, 2014 | David Solomon

What ingredients is your 'jar of life' filled to the brim with? The choice is yours!

In my last blog I referred to ‘Big Rocks’. I love this story for what it teaches us about focus and priorities – so necessary for all of us with such busy lives and so many competing priorities! A philosophy professor came to his class carrying 5 items – a large, empty mayonnaise jar, 3 […]



Time – The Most Valuable Currency We Trade With!

October 13, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Trading Time

Wow, it’s October already! Where does the year go?!!? Where does every month, week, day, hour and minute that you spend, actually GO??? It’s a trade-off, you see…. You are trading TIME for ACTIVITY, regardless of what the ‘activity’ may consist of. It’s not like money, where you can sit back and think about what […]



Hurry Up and Wait

September 29, 2014 | David Solomon

Exhausted from the pressure of racing to deadlines? What's wrong with pacing yourself?

In my distant past I spent 2 years and 40 days in the Army (not that I was counting…much). One of the things that I remember very clearly was how we used be told to rush from place to place – literally running to get there. And when we did arrive to where we were […]



How to Beat the Facebook News Feed With Outstanding Content

August 14, 2014 | Natalie Alaimo

One Hour, some white paper and a little planning every month leads to Facebook engagement.

Visit any blog about Facebook and you are bound to find one, if not more, articles about News Feed Optimisation and the declining reach on Facebook. On Facebook, after you have attracted quality fans to your Page, you can use your content to build rapport and a relationship with them.  This is all well and […]



Staying On Top of it All – Life Balance For Busy Women #7

August 6, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Start setting acceptable boundaries around your time. Here's how to say 'no' instead of always feeling like you have to say 'yes'.

Hello again! How is your 9 square process coming along? I trust you are well on the way to creating the life of your dreams! Today I’d like to talk about boundaries; about establishing mental parameters to filter what we allow ‘in’ to our time and space. I touched earlier on the point that we […]



Staying on Top of it All – Life Balance For Busy Women # 6

July 9, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Keep on track and don't let 'something shiny' divert your attention away from the main game; achieving your desired goals.

Welcome back! Let’s continue on the journey of designing our own ‘Big Picture’, our road-map for creating the life we desire. By now, you will have your special journal and the vision for your ‘Life’ will be starting to take shape. This is your ‘Design My Own Big Picture’ journal.  Keep it beside your bed, […]



Delegate or Die!

June 6, 2014 | Sue Lester

Stop trying to be the jack of all trades and do it all. Start delegating - it's good for your own health and sanity.

Ok, so the title is a little dramatic, but seriously, if you persist in insisting on doing it all yourself, something has to give – your health, your relationships or your business, perhaps all three.  What’s the highest risk for you right now?  What are the consequences of that ‘dying’? Is having so much to do […]



Staying on Top of it All – Life Balance for Busy Women #5

June 4, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Put yourself in the picture with 'Me' time or you will get lost in the chaos of business and life.

I hope you’ve joined me once more to continue our journey to create a balanced and fulfilling life. Last time, we discussed drawing up your ‘Life’ in a 9-square grid, supporting you to make mindful choices of how to best optimise your time and energy to create the life you desire. Let’s build on that…. […]



Have You Seen These New Features on LinkedIn?

May 9, 2014 | Robyn Henderson

Don't discount the value of using LinkedIn as an effective networking tool for your business.

LinkedIn’s mantra is do more, better. Not a bad mantra as they continually upgrade and change their systems. The latest change is one of the better ones, I believe. At least once a week you are probably receiving a summary of all the people who have changed jobs, are having a birthday or having a […]



Staying on Top of it All – Life Balance for Busy Women #4

April 30, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen

Use these strategies and techniques to create your very own 'Big Picture' journal.

Today I’d like to share with you a ‘magical’ strategy I devised many years ago, which has supported countless women to overcome the constant juggle and struggle of managing the many and varied roles of our busy lives. You will need two things: a ‘special’ journal – one that’s new and nice and that you’ll enjoy writing […]
