I was at a networking event the other day and met a lady who continually complained about having to be the Jill of all trades in her business.  She was snowed under by bookkeeping, BAS, marketing, supplier accounts, client invoicing – you name it and she had a pile of paper to prove she wasn’t keeping up with it! In a small business, money is tight.  So out of the necessity to save money, we attempt many jobs ourselves.  In doing so, we spend hours learning how, doing slowly, correcting and fin...

Business in Heels 10 step Process It’s been proven many times over by those in the know – the secret to building a successful business is to begin by building mutually beneficial relationships.  These relationships open doors to opportunities and possibilities that would otherwise have remained closed.  They initiate a two-way word-of-mouth advertising campaign that delivers benefits to both parties and further strengthen the relationship.     More than that – these relationships give us the con...

Amplify your message.  Get noticed.  Stand out from the crowd. These are messages business coaches, consultants and marketing gurus will tell you every day.  If you play small and don’t get noticed, you’ll eventually get sick of the struggle.  I bet you didn’t go into business for that.  So in keeping with our series to invigorate your cut-through, this week we’ll discuss public speaking. “Public Speaking – Aaaaaaahhhhh!”  I hear you scream.  I know, I know… it’s your worst nightmare, right?  We...

Video Statistics, Damn Video Statistics and Sex, Lies and Videotape. There’s nothing like statistics to create controversy.  Strange isn’t it – you can gather all the hard evidence you like but some bright spark somewhere will turn around and say, “Yeah, but when asking the questions, did you take into account the MacGruder Effect?”  And you’ll say, “Um…” and your whole premise is as wasted as a heroin addict as Pharmacy University. So, with that out of the way… Here are some statistics on video...

Over the last few months I’ve been presenting at various Rotary Clubs across Melbourne and Victoria discussing sustainability and downsizing. I have frequently been sharing my views on using what you have and injecting new life into your home using current pieces and adding a few additions to create impact. I thought I’d cover this topic and highlight quick and easy ways to create a revitalised interior, when you feel like you need a change, but don’t necessarily want to spend a fortune. I have ...

Katrina verso conceived the idea for Cammino after a long career in media in Melbourne’s CBD. She was one of the many women who collected ballet flats under their desk for some relief from the day in heels. A common challenge she encountered was that we all searched for a shoe that was as comfortable as it was stylish but also stood the test of time. And those flats were hard to find! So this, coupled with a love of the quality workmanship of shoes made in Italy inspired her to create this label...

Being a corporate stress head was all I ever knew for 20 years. It was what was the norm, almost as though you had to be that way to be seen as a high performer. It came at such a price though. I was constantly sick with colds, migraines, PCOS, and even whooping cough! No-one ever mentioned that it might be because I was stressed, eating rubbish, drinking like a pirate and the most exercise I go was signing the membership form at various gyms. (who hasn’t signed up to a gym and then never actual...

Active Truth was created by co-founders Nadia Tucker and Stevie Angel after a number of negative shopping experiences trying to buy beautifully printed tights that would perform as promised through a workout. We started the business in 2016 with an initial investment of around $10K each. In our second year of business, our turnover was $2million. We recently won a Queensland Telstra Business Award in the 'Emerging & Energised' category. We saw a gap in the market for a brand that not only servic...

Hi, my name is Meaghan and I'd love to tell my journey so far.  Since I was a child, all I wanted to be was a chef. I also had a fascination with all things African. I used to watch my mum cook, and I swear she did magic-that woman can cook. I did home economics in school, but alas I couldn't cook-but my presentation was superb. I then went and did my apprenticeship and became a chef. I was the happiest and living the dream-until 6 years ago when I got carpel tunnel in both hands-I was devasted,...

I am the owner of Caroline's Angels Baby Sleep Specialists. I was a Midwife when I had my first baby in 1997. He was a very difficult sleeper and over the first few years of his life, we sought outside help to support my husband and I with him. We were sleep deprived, exhausted and frustrated. While we were grateful for any support we could get, we found the strategies that were offered to us, just made our son worse and we continued in this very difficult cycle until he was around 2.   I found ...
