How To Switch Your Mind Off For A Good Night’s Sleep

January 30, 2017 | Sue Lester

If you find yourself suddenly wide awake with your head churning when you go to bed, or perhaps are so tired you drop off to sleep quickly, but awaken in the early hours with your head buzzing, this is for you.  Parents, this can help your kids sleep well and wake refreshed for the day.  […]



Repeat after me: “I Give Myself Permission……..”

November 7, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

As business owners, we often tend to be driven and passionate about what we do, and we generally have a ‘to-do’ list a mile long at any given time, right? It is easy to fall into the workaholic trap, working into the evenings and on the weekends, either because there is a seemingly-endless list of […]



4 Working Skills Employers Are Looking For in First Jobbers

October 21, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

Getting your first job can be stressful. When you don’t have the experience to appear competitive to the job market, you can feel like you’re never going to get hired. But employers are looking for more than just a background of employment when they’re deciding who they should hire. When attempting to land your first […]



Are You Missing in Action?

October 17, 2016 | Sue Lester

Have you gone missing in action?  Yes, you’re physically still present, rushing here and there, juggling home and work commitments.  Your family, staff and clients can see your body, but where are you? The real you, inside, the you that was always fun, with a taste for adventure in life – do you even remember […]



Are Men Undervalued?

September 23, 2016 | Sue Lester

As women in the Western world, as a whole we are growing stronger and more independent yearly. Our need (and respect) for men seems to be diminishing. So much seems to be taken for granted.  I was reflecting on this on the long flights back from Kenya recently.  I’ve just spent 3 weeks volunteering at […]



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 […]



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

February 11, 2016 | Sue Lester

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 […]



Plan Ahead – Bring Purpose and Direction To 2016

January 13, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

Another new year! Another new beginning! We all love the idea of a fresh start, a chance to re-evaluate our lives, and the opportunity to draw a psychological line in the sand and leave behind the baggage and mistakes of the past year. So, draw a line in the sand, step over it, and spend […]



Turn The ‘To Do List’ Upside Down!

December 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Wow, another year has almost passed, and, if you are like me, you are wondering where the months have gone, and lamenting the tasks on the ‘to do list’ yet to be completed! But take heart, and look at the list from the reverse perspective: look at what you’ve managed to accomplish for the year, […]



What is Overwhelm and How to Deal With It

November 30, 2015 | David Solomon

As a business owner there is just so much to do. Add to that our other life roles such as parent, partner, provider, lover, cook, cleaner, taxi-driver, coach, son or daughter etc. and it’s easy to see how and why we often feel overwhelmed. Overwhelm can feel confusing, crushing and paralysing. When you are in […]
