The value of accountability buddies

Every business wants growth. Or, at the very least, to maintain it’s perfect flow of consistent work. No matter how big or small your company is, you can’t go it alone. People are the core of your success.

How to tell when a team member needs support

When you put a group of people together, there’s always going to be the leaders and quiet achievers. Some personalities are bigger than others. For those more reserved, it’s easy to sit back and let others dominate conversation. 

Now, there’s nothing wrong with this, but as long as you know their voice is being heard in other ways. Sometimes, this is a sign that that your team member needs a little extra support – that they’re falling behind and are ...

Change your mindset towards money. Grow your business.

No matter what business you run, every dollar counts. And for SMEs, it’s easy to want to hold onto all of the profit you make. There’s too much of a focus on the bottom line, not the top line… the now

When to work? What's good, what's bad.

Timing is everything. Not just in business, but in life. Okay, let’s not get too philosophical here. 

We all want to work faster and more creatively. And research shows us that the way to do this is through working to the beat of your own drum – by working when you work best, not the other way around.

Do you hit a 3.00pm...

Businesses need to be invested in… continuously.

There’s one simple strategy that I take when it comes to business. A portion of your earnings need to be reinvested back into it. While this sounds like an obvious thing, not many business owners do it. 

I’ve with companies that invest half of their revenue back into their business each year. They’ve become leaders in their field by doing this. Business, like a house, requires ongoing investment. The more you add to it, to bigger it grows. Adding a new skill or ...

Consider zigging, when everyone else zags

The great Albert Einstein said it well: 

“The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.”

From a young age, we do everything in groups. Go to school, play sport, and socialise. We’re taught by the same teachers, with one class curriculum. Without even being aware of it, we start to share the same views, thoughts, and outlook o...
