The Step That Will Enhance Your Productivity

Do you review your week?

And if so, to what extent?

I will be honest with you, I never used to, but I found that days and weeks would fly by and I would be living my life with little intention.

I mean, of course, I had goals, but I wasn’t checking in on them to see how they were impacting my life regularly, if at all.

I think a weekly review is also great for my mental health; it allows me to debrief, to disconnect to reconnect and to download all that is on my mind.

Another great benefit of doing a weekly review is that you get to have a fresh start every single Monday.

So in this post, I wanted to share with you some ideas of what to include in your weekly review.

Of course, not all of them will work for you, but use this as a pick and mix and take what you need right now.

How To Grow Your Business Quickly

Now, what we are going to talk about today is not new. In fact, it is going back to basics. But the thing is, with an abundance of resources and ‘new’ things to do, sometimes we forget the ‘basics’.

So I wanted to delve into an idea that I came across online recently, it was actually from a video that you can access here.

Now although the percentages used in this video are outdated, the concept remains.

In short, the main message is: to grow quickly, you must focus on existing clients and new products.  But, I am going to dive into it more a little now.

How To Know When To Hire

We have talked about creating a community within a company and we have talked about 'Why The Employee Package Is More Important Than Ever'.

In this post we are going to explore some things you should think about before you hire; whether that is your first hire or simply a new addition to the team, each new hire is equally important.

How To Take A Positive Mindset on Technology

Ah technology, it’s such an odd one, isn’t it?

A beautiful modern version of a double-edged sword: it enhances our lives, but can also hinder it.

It wasn’t too long ago when I took an impromptu break from social media.

I just needed to, you know?

It was all sparked from the knowledge of how much time I had spent on my screen that week (thanks Apple screen time).

It became apparent that I was WAY too connected to my phone, and something needed to change.

Why The 'Employee' Package is More Important Than Ever

The employee package is what a new staff member gets for their service to a company. This is often mistaken for solely monetary, but this could not be further from the truth.

Of course, cold hard cash is what pays the bills and will always be a factor, but, especially the new wave of hires, want more. People want more from their role, to feel fulfilled, to create a lifestyle, to be part of something.

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.

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.

Why You Should Be Going To More Events And How To Find The Good Ones

We all know that networking at events is big in the business world.

With the recent announcement that we are launching quarterly events, we thought it was time to let you know why we think you should be going to more events, and how you can find the good ones!

How To Manage Your ToDo List With This Simple System

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?

Many of us have had those days where we are always busy but have not got a lot done, can you relate?

I used to be someone who couldn't keep track of all the things I had to do. Think about how many plates you have to keep spinning, and it is easy to see how overwhelm can creep in.


So I devised a process, which at first, may seem a little over the top, but once you start using it, it takes little effort to maintain.
