Going around in circles with no direction…

*Going around in circles with no direction – long post ahead… with some vulnerability too* So, I have been feeling like I’ve been going around in circles for a few weeks. Floating, drifting, aimless – yet happy. It’s been a strange feeling, mainly because it felt incredibly foreign to me. Happiness mixed with a touch…

Taking the leap and routines

Have you ever felt yourself coming to a complete stop when you should be moving forward? Your heart and gut are saying ‘GO FOR IT’… Yet. Your mind says NO. It could be starting a family, starting a business or taking that new job. But, how do you know you are ready for the leap?…

ENTREPRENEUR GUILT

The guilts. We all get them at some level, don’t we? Entrepreneur guilt is especially common among business owners, and while it’s nice to know we’re not alone (and we are so not alone), it’s not so helpful, right? Guilt makes us feel like crap.

Meditation is the new hustle

At the beginning of a new month, I always reflect on the past one. I look back at the lessons and the experiences and often ‘journal’ this out as part of the process. There is no special secret to this, I just look back at my diary (and facebook posts actually)…and write out what I did,…

Why ignoring the ever-changing dynamics of the internet will leave you behind your competitors

No one wants to be left behind, do they? We can bitch and whine about the internet changing our lives. We can bitch and whine about the fact that social media has changed how we communicate. Yes. We can do that. Or we can do something else entirely. We can embrace it all. To be…

Use the Messenger platform to connect to your customers and free up your time

Communicating quickly with your customers and also freeing up your time sounds like a paradox, doesn’t it? You know you need to talk to them and give them answers fast (as we know they will think subconsciously that you have ignored them, even though its 9 pm on a Sunday). You also don’t want to…
