Distance doesn’t mean anything...

Monday, September 02, 2019

I get asked a lot if it’s possible to build REAL relationships online, and I wanted to share this story which I think is total proof that yes, yes you can…

Want the best from your online banking? Here are some options...

Thursday, February 08, 2018

I often get asked about banking online as a digital nomad, so I thought I'd share a bit of insight with you.

In all honesty, we've had some problems over the years, like for example, for about 6 years we lived only in holiday accommodation - that meant no utility bills or proof of address, so getting any decent banking facility was a bit of a nightmare, and quite impractical, let alone the amount of times our address changed - to a different country!

Playing it cool with Pat Flynn, and other stories...

Saturday, September 30, 2017

So it's been a couple of weeks since I got back from Portugal, and as I sit here getting ready to travel to Barcelona next week to speak at 7in7, I have to say I took a moment to reflect and I really had an awesome time. I held a workshop at DNX Global, which is one of the biggest, actually I think it is the biggest Digital Nomad event in the world.

Hesitation Can Cost You, and Regret Can Consume You

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

As you may know, I'm a 'location independent' - this means I can travel around, live wherever I want, and I can take my income, business (and family!) with me wherever I go, and it's a wonderful life, a life I only could have ever dreamed about before I discovered what it took to 'live' it.

The Ultimate Way To Grow Your Business Is With 1nSourcing

Friday, January 27, 2017

I'm going to be frank here... As a business owner myself and growing a business beyond 6 figures, I fully understand that you, as a business owner, don't work an exact number of hours every month in your business, you don't repetitively complete the same exact tasks over and over every month and you don't require the same exact amount of time spent in every area of your business every month. Am I right? If you did, you'd be a robot.

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.

Are You Feeling Like A Virtual Cast Away?

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.
