Hanging Out In The Himalayas

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Namaste! Welcome to the second instalment of our trip to India. We packed our bags and got in the car for over 9 hours heading to the Himalayas! It was a festival day so took about 2 hours longer than normal to get clear of the Delhi area. We had an awesome driver (Mohan, below in the image of us with our second mode of transport, the elephant) who never seemed to leave our side, I mean literally he stayed with us the whole week in the car parks, being available if we needed a car for anything - whenever, I'm pretty confident he slept in it...

I wanted to sum up our time there, so I made you guys a quick video ;-)

3 Digital Ways To Learn A New Language Quickly

Friday, October 21, 2011

It’s the weekend, and I have decided to treat myself to a new hobby by ‘officially’ starting my journey towards learning Greek. Why you ask? Well, we are all set to move to Crete, Greece in 6 months with the hopes of building a life there for ourselves and our kids. Whilst our children will only be 3 and 4 when we arrive, I have been assured children under the age of 6 will soak the language up like a sponge in school, so we are going to enrol them directly into the local Greek pre-school and hope our kids will then translate for us, ha ha! It won’t be quite like that.

Friday, September 23, 2011

If you have been a virtual assistant for a while now, and you happen to be someone who is in the house on your own, you may start feeling the “Wilson” effect. Tom hanks in Cast Away was stranded on a desert island with only a basketball for company… Okay, so it may not be that bad, and in fact it isn’t… Let’s look into some ways that you can try to put this whole working from home thing into perspective — sometimes we just need reminding of how we can make it work for us as individuals.

“Life Appointments” – How To Step Away From Your Business Without The Entrepreneurial Guilt Factor

Friday, June 24, 2011

In 2011 I’ve been considering “work-life balance” a lot more often. I wrote a post earlier this year about how I have more than halved the hours I spend in my virtual assistance business by basically restructuring my team, and since then my hours have continued to reduce. It was the single best decision in my business which I have ever made, that has had the most positive impact on my life. When I was considering how I was doing it, yes I was hiring more people, and shifting roles to help me in my business, but what really made a difference more than anything else was my own self-discipline and actually ‘scheduling in my life’ into my day, with what I call “Life Appointments,” instead of letting my personal life slip by as an afterthought.

Co-Working Spaces For Digital Nomads & Online Entrepreneurs

Friday, May 13, 2011

I recently was on a Skype chat with a colleague who works with me, and is based in France, she generally works from home, but she mentioned she was going offline to try out a “Co-Working” Space. I had heard of these before, but never investigated them further, I usually go to bars or cafe’s to get a good wi-fi spot when I am out and about, but I had never actually considered setting up an external office style space for a longer period of time.
