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.

4 Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make When Raising Money For Their Business And How To Avoid Them

The first time I tried to raise investment for my business, I was a hot mess. I had no idea what I was doing, what I needed to prepare or where I needed to start to find investors. It took me the best part of a year to raise my first round of funding for my first e-commerce business and included a lot of sleepless nights, closed doors and I even started to lose my hair from the stress as my business began to run out of cash. I learnt a lot from that first round.
