Workflow Whizz: Save Time & Grow Your Business!

  Who doesn’t like being productive? The truth is even the biggest procrastinators among us relish the feeling of being efficient and kicking that to-do list to the curb. With the amount of things you could do instead of spending ages on a menial task that should take a fraction of time- from creatively coming up with your next product or service idea to penning that book you’ve always wanted to write- it’s no wonder…

Q&A: “Hmmm What Is A CRM Again?”

  If you’ve stumbled across this or one of our recent blog posts and you’re a tad confused then you’ve come to the right place! Even better, if you’ve read a few of our posts and can see they’re connected by a theme that you can’t quite put your finger on, it’s because they are!

Why You Should Nail the Networking Knack

  We’re very excited this week as we’re attending The HD8 Business Show and delivering a small seminar exploring solutions that enable small businesses to operate in a location independent capacity. I’ll also be discussing how to easily pass on the knowledge business owners have stored in their busy brains to others in their team so they can delegate more and dedicate more focus to leading. I’m looking forward to it but do you know…

Normally Nomadic – What being a Digital Nomad really means…

You’ll also work long hours at times and be forced to be productive when you least feel like it. I have seen a decent amount of the world nonetheless….

Multitasking: How to Juggle Tasks Without Realising It

How many things can you do at once? When was the last time you multitasked? I bet you can do a fair few activities at once and have multitasked at least once today.

Juggling Priorities as an SME business owner

In 2015 the British Standards Institute carried out a survey of 250 SMEs with between 1-250 employees. The survey revealed that almost 50% of them didn’t feel that their business was operating efficiently. 25% claimed that there was room for improvement and 20% of owners stated that they were involved in every aspect of their business. It is no wonder that 55% of SMEs don’t survive more than 5 years. Finding the time to grow…

Who Wants to be a Digital Nomad?

Hi, I’m Mel, I used to work in an office, 9 to 5, paid overtime and holidays, a nice air conditioned secure job. Or so I thought. After 8 years of loyal service, the office closed and everybody was made redundant. I was out on my ear, with just enough money to put towards the deposit on a flat or maybe buy a car.
