Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Have you been feeling that your desk job has taken its toll on you? All that sitting down, very little movement, maybe having a couple of kids and grabbing food on the fly has left you overweight, feeling lethargic, yo-yo dieting and generally feeling like you aren't in your best shape, but you've tried everything and it hasn't worked - this is going to sound like one of those cheesy weight loss adverts, but I'm completely serious - that was me, but not anymore, and I'd like to show you how this happened...

The 3 Pieces That Are Missing From Your Income Strategy

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

A lot of people will wonder why things aren't happening in their business. This is often the first question someone on a consulting session will ask me. "I can't seem to get clients", or "my existing clients aren't buying more services from me" etc... Basically it's pretty normal that they get to a certain point and then everything comes to a grinding halt.

Competition - Probably The Most Misinterpreted Word In Business

Thursday, April 23, 2015

If you're in business or just starting a business you may have heard of the word "Competition" - this word, used in the context of business, almost sounds like business is some sort of game, and there can only be one winner, maybe a few runners up and a whole bunch of losers.

Creative Visualisation - What Dr. Spock Wouldn't Teach You About Business

Friday, April 17, 2015

Creative visualisation (basically seeing a goal in your imagination), no matter what way you slice it, doesn't always go down well with the Dr. Spock types who are more invested in the "only logical" aspects of developing a business, I think it's because they struggle with the lack of tangible evidence that it works - which of course is completely understandable, but stay with me here...

Thursday, February 12, 2015

There's one thing I loath in business, that's accounting. So when the nice people in the government introduce something like VAT MOSS, I look for the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way to not let it become a huge headache, and essentially find my way around having to deal with it.

Create A Thriving Online Service Business During The Holiday Season

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Around this time of year I see the same patterns emerging in my own business and with the virtual assistants who I work with through my programmes. It's a sort of seasonal slump where enquiries slow right down or stop coming in, where clients tend to drop off the map and stop requesting work, where you can't get a hold of people, or the ones you do get a hold of are 'out of the office' and basically everything grinds to a halt - when the work stops, usually so does the income. In this post I'll tell you how to thrive during these times with my top 3 seasonal strategies.

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

I honestly thought I would never - ever - need to be in a position to have to do a post like this, I really hate the fact that I have to do it, but seriously this needs to be addressed, not just for me, but for VA's and their clients everywhere. Tragically, in order to get my point fully across I need to make a video, this video will expose some of the worst plagiarism, or 'content-lifting' as I tend to call it, and blatant acts of dishonesty I have ever seen online. It's not pretty - here goes...
