Are You Getting What You Want From Your Business?

Do you remember that day, some time ago when you had an idea, and you kept thinking about it, and it just got bigger and bigger until you had to do something with it and then….you decided to start your business. Recall the energy you felt, the joy in your heart and the fear in your tummy, the total ‘Oh crikey, what am I doing, is this going to work out?’ excitement that kept you…

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow

I’ve had a couple of clients repeat the age old saying” its quicker to do it myself” this week and I totally understand why they think this is the case, it’s what most of us think right? Because in your mind, not only will the task be done quicker but it will be done right and done the way you want it, but is it really the best course of action for the long term?…

Working all the time is not a business it’s a life sentence

“Mum, do you know it is Saturday tomorrow?”   “Yes”   “Well why are you still working at midnight?” Good question and one for which I did not have, a fitting reply. Starting up your own business is exciting, breaking away from the 9-5 rat race and dreaming of better things to come without a boss fill many of us with enthusiasm and energy to conquer our piece of the world. It starts out as…

The art of Delegation – How am I supposed to do that?

Last time we looked at why we delegate (click here for a reminder)  and I promised you we would follow up with how to effectively delegate; so you start getting the most out of yourself and your people as fast as possible.

“The art of Delegation Introduction – Why delegate?” It’s often been heard, “I love what I do, I really know my stuff and I could do a better job if I had my own business rather than working for someone else. How hard can it be?” Then a bit of time passes – as a Business Owner, it started off fine, but now there’s so many different jobs to do, people to see and clients…

If you want to get ahead……

As the Christmas preparations are well underway, with trees up, lights on and wrapping paper at all the check outs, we recognise that the success of this big day (yes, all this for one day) depends on the action taken prior to the event itself. And before the action comes the plan and before the plan comes the thinking and the setting of the intention. Whether its pulling off a large family get together, having…

Careful What You Wish For

Many of us have a conditional love for our parents: we get on with them, or not, at different times, on different levels for different reasons. I loved my Dad and he loved me, because we were Father and Daughter. However, there were many times when I did not like him and we found many reasons to debate, disagree and ultimately fall out over our years together. But there’s one thing that was ‘ours.’ Our…

On The Road To Nowhere

Where do I begin? And Where am I going? Reminds me of the Talking Heads song Road to Nowhere, and sometimes we may feel like we’re living the lyrics of that song… I often listen to people who are feeling like they are overwhelmed and underachieving, people who feel there is so much to do and so little time to do it, however when I dig a bit deeper, it’s often about  “I don’t know…
