For anyone who has gone through a separation you very quickly are forced to face the reality of increased expenses, tough decisions needing to be made quickly around where you will live, and feeling pulled in every direction to the point you no longer have time for you.

The Wake Up Call Every Business Owner Needs

Uncategorized Mar 16, 2018

Every day I meet small business owners who have lost their mojo and the reason why they started a business in the first place. The passion has faded, into nothing. I look around their retail store or perhaps it is their website and wonder do they even care anymore?

Far too often they resent their business. They started with plans for that perfect work-life balance. Only to have been sucked into the small business vortex where you could work 24/7 and never get everything done as the pressure of weight on their shoulders almost becomes unbearable.

So how did the dream become a nightmare?

There is one common theme amongst all the business owners in this situation that I meet. They have always worked on business planning first, and never put their personal lives and lifestyle as the priority. The way small business owners for decades have been told to succeed is to spend countless hours building an impressive business plan, implementing and then measuring.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but in the harsh light of day, it’s not so clear. If you’ve been in this situation and want to take control of your financial health, it might be time for a financial detox.

Declutter Your Personal Life

Uncategorized Jan 23, 2018
 

 

In life, we often get so caught up in today and forget about where we want to be in our future. It is also easy to end up doing things that force us to spend time in places that we don't want to be, with people we perhaps don't even really like.

It is important to make time to take simple steps to declutter our lives and there is no better time to do this than now.

Decluttering your life is about giving yourself permission to focus on the things that matter to you the most.

 

Press Pause

The first step is to put time into your diary every week that is time just for you.  This is your opportunity to spend the time to reset, put the week that has been in context and press pause even if you only have 10 minutes to spare. This time should be used to do something that replenishes and nurtures you. Whether it be meditating, taking a blanket down to the park and reading a book or simply going for a walk.

 

Set Your Intention

Whether on a daily, weekly or monthly basis...
