'The Voice' has attracted a huge viewing audience in Australia. I am one of those who have captivated by the contestants, their amazing voices and of course the mentors. Their passion and drive to achieve their dream is amazing to watch as they push themselves outside their comfort zones.Read More

Christmas is the time of year that we are "making a list and checking it twice, because we want to find out who's naughty or nice". I have been thinking about how this applies to the business world.Read More

I had a clean out on the weekend and found over $800.00 in unclaimed gift vouchers. Sounds crazy I know. While gift vouchers sound like a great idea for the giver are they really appreciated by the receiver?Read More

Last week we had a taste of spring and didn't it feel great. You could almost smell the spring flowers and see people's spirits lift. Everyone has been saying what a cold wet winter we had and it certainly felt like it. In the midst of the cold days it was hard to imagine being warm again, but it's coming.Read More

This month I have been thinking about what's in my mailbox. I'm not talking the email one but the old fashioned front of the house snail mail kind. Mine is most often filled with bills and junk mail, not very exciting stuff.Read More

My husband always says that I am good at spending money. So I thought I'd put this gift to work and share my top 10 ways to spend your left over profits before the end of the financial year.
1. Have a business makeover and while your at it throw in a makeover for yourself.
2. Make a donation to your favourite charity. Here's a great one Andrew Masi is cycling in the Les Dix Alpes cycling challenge, raising money for The Oncology Childrens Foundation.
3. Take a holiday but make sure you call it a business planning trip.
4. Give an EOFY (end of financial year) gift to your favourite clients. You'll stand out from the Christmas rush of gifts. Wrapped to you have some great gift ideas, check out website
5. Look at your stationary needs. Do you need more printing done or need to produce a report. WHO printing do a fantastic and speedy job
6. Plan a Christmas in July event for your clients and staff, away from the 'silly season'
7. Reward your team for all their efforts this financial year. Plan a social event or give them a gift
8. Organise team building events for your staff. How about a spa day, theatre nights, trip to the vineyards 9. Buy something bigger or better
10. Shop till you drop then give the receipts to your bookkeeper or accountant and let them creatively turn them into tax deductions
Disclaimer: your accountant is the best judge on what is REALLY a tax deduction so talk to them.

Catch them being good…….
I have been reflecting lately on some parenting advice that I was given…..catch your kids being good and reward that behaviour. This got me to thinking about how to apply that advice to the workplace. A lot of what we do in business is about providing a fantastic service, building great relationships with our clients and keeping your business “top of mind”

I have been pondering this month the role of the internet in business growth. It is true to say that the internet has certainly opened the doors of businesses to the world, 24hours a day, 7 days a week. These open doors bring new clients and new opportunities for growth.
But BEWARE your clients are also surfing the net. Maybe they are looking at your competitors websites. How loyal are they to you and your business?Read More
