So whether you are reading this midway through February, or with a month left in the year, there is a good chance that you have broken your New Years resolution.Read More
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.Read More
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.
We all know that networking at events is big in the business world.
As the saying goes, ‘It’s not about what you know, it’s who you know’.
The thing with events is that you will always take something of value home with you (and I don’t just mean the free swag, although we really love that). Whether its knowledge and advice, motivation or community you’re looking for, events are the perfect place to go.
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!Read More
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.
Whether you are on the go but still sleep at home, whether it is a new city every night or maybe even a new country, being an on the go entrepreneur can take its toll. The results? Tiredness, lack of energy and a severe lack of time.
We totally get it; sometimes it is all about maximising that layover, minimising the time it takes to get to sleep and improving those morning rituals.
So without further a due, we are going to share our favourite products (that are all under £50) that will enhance and streamline your routine.
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.
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.
I think the thing is with decision fatigue is that it is one of those things that people talk about quite a lot, but we do not implement it do we? We see these excellent blog posts and these inspirational people talking about all about streaming our lives and automating and outsourcing but how much of that do we then go away and use?Read More
So, 2019 is fast approaching.
We tend to look at the New Year as the time to set new intentions, make new plans and dream up new goals for the year ahead - whether that be in business or life.
And it’s great to look to the future, to manifest all of the beautiful things you dream for your life.
By writing down your goals for the year to come, you gain clarity, manifestation becomes easier, and your dreams will become your reality.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at our 5 top planners to help you manifest and achieve your goals in 2019.Read More
Time is a precious resource that is so often wasted. But, we do not think people waste time intentionally.
It just seems that time management (along with other things) is never widely taught to us.
And while we are not entirely onboard with the saying: "time is money" (there are so many things we dislike about that saying). Time is opportunity.
So with that being said, time management is an incredible skill to acquire. But the question is: how?Read More
Arguably, one of the biggest perks of being a remote worker is that you have full control over your working day.
As well as writing blogs, creating graphics, and scheduling social media, the organisation makes up for a big part of my role as Virtual Office Manager, and my love for organising is part of the reason that Ben asked me to join the Squad.
With this in mind, we thought it would be fun to give you a little insight into my mind - how I keep my day organised and get everything done while wearing so many virtual hats.
Creating a business is scary.
So in this post, we want to share with you how not be affected by others opinions. Because mental resilience is such an important muscle to exercise. Starting with you…Read More
We get it; business is scary. There is so much to think about it. From clients to employees, even your email can be a daunting place.
The fear that you are feeling is something you have learnt. You have learnt this fear. You were not born with it.
In this post, we are going to look at some of the most common fears in business, and we are going to give you another option. An alternative way of thinking.Read More
The thing about the to-do list is that it can be a little overwhelming. For some of us, it serves as a motivational tool, a way of 'downloading' our thoughts and putting them into list form, which can be quite therapeutic and can help us work in a flow state.
In this post, we are going to address the anxiety that can come from a to-do list, and we are going to drill down on how to eliminate it. The main places anxiety seems to seep from is procrastination, overwhelm and fear of failure.Read More
We had so much to share in our first blog post looking at how to recharge over the weekend: ‘19 Ways You Can Charge Your Energy To Increase Joy At The Weekend (Pt 1)’ that we had to make this one a two-parter.
Kicking off with the shower...Read More
When the weekend swings around after a long week, it can be rather tempting to slump into the sofa all weekend with little plans of moving. And while that may be ok to do, it is not something that is sustainable to do every weekend. Luckily, there are many ways to recharge over the weekend to set yourself up for a happier and more joyful week.Read More
People often think that journaling has to take up a lot of their time in order to benefit from it.
But this really is not the case.
Journaling is like any other tool that you use to enhance your life; it can be used as little or as often, as you need.Read More
