How to supercharge your business using solution based thinking …

They say that every problem has a solution…right? Well yes but often it’s how do we think about solutions when there are so many obstacles that seem to compound themselves in business. Whether it is staff, cash flow, marketing, conversions, stock control and the list goes on, the key is to start by using the following strategies in order to take control and deal with any obstacle that throws itself at you. As you know there will always be problems it’s [...]

Phone sales are not dead!!!

In an age where technology rules pretty much every part of our life as business owners, I believe that we have forgotten that people still buy from people. Now I know using online Social media platforms have changed the sales and the way we connect for good I also know that the good old fashioned pick up the phone and ask for more information your prospects are still very much alive and well. Sometimes I think we have forgotten about [...]

3 Strategies On How Focused On Your Business

Trying to navigate the business terrain can be a minefield or should I say a “mind field”. Dealing with staff, suppliers, cash flow, marketing, strategies for growing the business, accounts, shipment and the list goes on and on. However one of the biggest challenges that business owners face is their ability to keep focused on a daily basis and not lose faith in the long run. Sometimes the pressure of owning and operating a business whether you a solopreneur or [...]

The importance of creating a roadmap for your business

Everything that we do in life usually comes with some more thought or preconception of what we want to achieve. Be it going to shops or getting married, the goal is usually already an idea in our mind and then it’s a matter of time to execute the actions required to achieve it. So it’s interesting to me how many business owners DO NOT have any solid goals in order to achieve their financial, marketing or sales objectives. In many [...]

How to be more productive than you have ever been…

The title itself gives some people the jitters. I know it used to definitely do that to me until I discovered the art of micro “time outs”. So let’s start with the research. According to an article in Forbes magazine “The 10-minute nap produced immediate improvements in all outcome measures (including sleep latency, subjective sleepiness, fatigue, vigour, and cognitive performance), with some of these benefits maintained for as long as 155 minutes”. I mean who would have thought right? I think [...]

How to build a team that’s engaged, motivated and connected

In Australia, Gallup’s recent survey found that 60% of employees are not engaged at work, while a further 16% are actively disengaged. This leaves a small 24% (one quarter) who are engaged in the workplace. But how can you tell if someone is not engaged? Usually by a lack of honest feedback, no connection between teammates, a negative atmosphere, and a sense that people don’t really want to be there. Team engagement begins with its leaders. If they are leading [...]

How to live your purpose in business and your life

If you don’t have a purpose in your business or your life, you’re basically just wandering around aimlessly without any concrete goals on the way you want to live your life, and what you want to accomplish. It’s the same as getting in your car and setting off for a drive, without any idea where you’re heading, or why you’re going in the first place. That would be a waste of valuable time and energy - and you don’t want [...]

Why The Fear Of Failure Has Nothing To Do With Failure Itself

It’s often said that one of the biggest challenges we face as humans is the fear of failure. Funny enough it literally stops us in our tracks. So many people that I meet at my events when asked about why they haven't accomplished what they set out to do respond with “I’m scared that I may fail”. Now I believe that it isn’t as simple as this. Because this answer sounds linear (if that then this) however I  believe that [...]

Most Marketing Fails, But Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Give Up…

In case you didn’t realise it, marketing is the heart of your business. Without it, no one is going to know who you are or what you offer, and you’re not going to make any money = business suicide. Most businesses (yours is probably included in this) go about marketing the wrong way. They make HUGE mistakes, and lots of smaller ones too. So quit blaming your tools or the world, and let’s get real on why most marketing efforts [...]

How To Overcome Common Self-limiting Beliefs That Hold Business Owners Back

So many of us get held back in our personal and business lives by our self-limiting beliefs. But the thing about those beliefs is - we get to choose them, and we can choose positive, empowering ones, or limiting, negative ones. Here are just a few of the common lies we tell ourselves on a daily basis: “I’m not clever enough to run a business” “I’m too young and no-one will take me seriously!” “I’m too old and everyone will [...]
