Great Virtual Assistants and Having a Business Mindset

January 18, 2018 | Ingrid Bayer

Working with many Virtual Assistants (VA) over the years, it is interesting to see how a business mindset can be the underlying reason for their business’s success (or not).  You see, our mindset is something that we are often unaware of, but be assured: the ability to develop a sound business mindset is profoundly critical […]



Women Weary at Work?

November 8, 2017 | Caryn Walsh

We’re nearly through the year now, and chances are you’re feeling a little jaded.  The regular mini-breaks you promised to take this year seem a distant memory and ….. you’re back in the same place you threatened you would leave. Tired and uninspired with, and in, your work. You tell yourself you’ll change.  Things will […]



Communication Problems in Online and Virtual Business

October 18, 2017 | Ingrid Bayer

Getting communication right when you’re an Online Business Operator or VA is critical, and so too is managing miscommunications and misunderstandings when things go wrong. Because Online Business Operators are not located in their client’s physical office space, there is no opportunity for the client to actually communicate in 3 dimensions that an in-person conversation […]



Diversity Drives Creativity, Which Equals Profitability

September 5, 2017 | Theresa Miller

“I like blowing shit up,” is the war cry of Cindy Gallop, who gave the electrifying keynote at Sydney’s inaugural ‘3 Per Cent Conference’ on August 31. Striding onto the stage in a black, zippered, cat suit and swinging her trademark blonde bob, she delivered her empowering manifesto in a British accent that could cut […]



5 Self-Care Mindset Tips To Beat The Winter Blues

July 19, 2017 | Sue Lester

Even those of us blessed with sunny Queensland winters can be affected by the cold and shorter days, and the nasty germs flying around that leave you feeling tired and miserable. So it’s even more important during these months to look after yourself, even if you have a demanding family, career or business. Seriously, you […]



Who are the Strong Women who have Influenced YOU?

July 11, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

Have you ever stopped to consider what beliefs you have about life? And where you developed these? Who were the women who influenced you? What impact did they have on your personal and professional evolution? These women may have been mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, teachers, community members. What did you learn from them? Was […]



Virtual Assistants in Australia – The What, How and Why

May 12, 2017 | Ingrid Bayer

When I tell people about the work I do as a VA (Virtual Assistant) and training VAs in Australia, I quite often see their eyes glaze over as they try very hard to look as if they comprehend what it is I am actually talking about.  My very next question will always be, “Do you […]



Business Lightbulb Moment!

March 23, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

Have you ever had a lightbulb moment? You know, the ones where something seemingly obvious suddenly ‘hits you’ and some aspect of life becomes clearer as a result? Well, one such revelation that I encourage you to ‘have’ (I know, they can’t really be engineered, but humour me….) is the realisation that when you set […]



How Can You #BeBoldForChange When It Doesn’t Feel Right?

March 10, 2017 | Sue Lester

#BeBoldForChange is the 2017 International Women’s Day (and beyond) theme, but how do you step up and take bold action for change, if you don’t feel bold inside? That internal fear and self-doubt keep many women locked into dead-end jobs, toxic or limp relationships and negativity. A definition of courage is to feel the fear […]



The World Needs Women Entrepreneurs

January 18, 2017 | David Solomon

There is a gradual but steady global shift that I believe will result in women being the inevitable future leaders of our societies. If not, at the very least the current imbalance will be redressed. What is needed in business today is a better grasp of (and comfort with) relationships of all kinds. And this […]
