Why Your Wellness Is Important To Be Successful

Creating a work and lifestyle blend that you love is rightly at the heart of Cone and everything we do.

We thrive by being innovative entrepreneurs and remote workers, who spend each day doing what we love while living a lifestyle we love!

For too long, doing well has been prioritised over being well. In a world of being ‘busy’ all. of. the. time. to be successful, we’ve lost sight of our wellness too many times.

Wellness is something we regularly discuss and work on as a team, and we want to share this with you!

From developing mantras to live by, to changing your food habits, and implementing positive habits like journaling and practising yoga each day, there are so many different ways you can support your wellness for success.

What Does A Beautiful Sales Process Look Like?

I really don’t get it. I have not come across the stereotypical sales process in a while.

You know the kind, the 'icky', in-genuine approach.

But recently I have been subjected to a whole load of insincere, read-off-a-sheet type selling.
I have had brash emails.

Odd calls.

My position in the business questioned.

Look I get it, I know that everyone has sales quotas and targets and it is a fundamental part of a successful business, but I instantly clam up when people go into hardcore selling mode.

I believe in beautiful business. The idea that the service or product is designed to HELP the end user, aka the client or customer. Not just to match a sales target.

How To Get The Most Out Of Reading

We adore books. They allow you to learn, grow, relax, disconnect, reconnect and generally develop as a person.

They take you on a journey, and they are the ‘best bits’ of a person’s mind, they allow you to connect to mentors you may otherwise have never been able to connect with. It really does fascinate me how they are beautiful masterpieces and insights into other people's minds.

The Sleeping Routine For A Nourishing Sleep

Ah, sleep. It is a highly spoken about topic, isn't it?

The thing with sleep as an entrepreneur is that it is typically the first thing that goes when you get busy.

Especially if you are managing a family life too.

And although we know how important it is, we rarely introduce a routine or a system to help us get the most out of our precious hours of shut-eye.

So, we wanted to share a sleep routine that you can integrate and blend with your lifestyle, that will help promote a good nights sleep. Let’s start with an hour before you go to sleep.

The Thing You Need To Bring Back Into Your Business For Ultimate Happiness

We're bringing fun back.

I believe you can have it all.  And here is where you start.

There is, of course, a ‘but’. Well, not so much a ‘but’ rather a way in which to make it happen:

You need to choose what 'having it all' really means to you. You see, whether it is working from home and being able to be with your children, or whether it is running a successful business and travelling the world.

You need to know what is important to you, for where you are at in your life right now.


And that is not about making a sacrifice, and that is not to say your focus can never change, you just need to work out what it is that will make you happy right now.

Right now, as you are reading this blog post, how many things are on your to-do list? How many times have you lost your to-do list? And do you find it overwhelming?

Mindset Shifts To Be More Successful In Business

They say that only 5% of startups make it to year 5. Now while there may be many factors the attribute to this, and there are many things that can affect this, I can’t quite shake the idea that a large amount of this comes down to the belief system that those 5% have.

I mean, think about it. How many people go into business unsure as to whether they will succeed? What effect do you think this has on the business? If every decision that is made is done so with a level of doubt.

In this post, we want to share with you some new beliefs, some new ways of thinking about business. These beliefs will help you in all areas of your life. So if you are ready for a new perspective, then keep on reading.

Feeling a little unmotivated? Read this

Are you doing things the best way or are you afraid of change?

The other day I was speaking to a few entrepreneurs who were saying how uninspired they felt. They enjoy their work, but when they come to do it, they just feel… ‘meh’.

So, it got me thinking, what do I do when I feel the inevitable ‘meh’? Well, quite honestly I take a break until I feel inspired again, which doesn’t really take a long time.
