How Business Freedom Enablers Help You Go The Xtra Mile

Think of all the extra things you could do if you didn’t have to do mediocre and mundane tasks… While you’re waiting for your name to be called at the doctors you’re probably daydreaming about playing your favourite sport or making your favourite creative thing, whether that be baking, drawing or writing that novel you’re working on. While you’re in the bus queue you might be wishing you were meeting a friend for a catch…

Vision: What’s Your Business Destination?

  Sometimes the best things that happen to us are spontaneous. Bumping into an old friend can bring more laughs than an obligatory scheduled meeting with an acquaintance. A surprise out of the blue from a loved one can be more touching than a planned birthday surprise. Stumbling upon an advert for a local networking event on social media can result in better business relationships than your organised direct sales strategy. But when it comes…

New Year, New Business Approach?

We hope you and your business have enjoyed 2016. Whilst New Year is a time to reflect on how lucky we are at present and the successes we’ve enjoyed so far, my mantra is: “how can we find a better way?” I’m always looking for ways to improve, streamline, optimise and get smarter. So what have we learnt from our A-Z of CRM blog post series this year that can shape practical and useful New…

Our HD8 Business Show Learning Experience…

We are currently producing a blog series called A-Z of CRMs, as CRM customisations are among what we do here…

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…

I read A LOT of articles about being a digital nomad. Leaving the corporate world behind and seeing the world sounds exciting, but what is the reality? Well, you probably won’t get rich, and you’ll pull your hair out when you can’t get decent WiFi, that’s for sure. 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….

Freedom – How do you define freedom in business?

Is it about being able to pick and choose the hours that you work, being able to invest time into the hobbies and interests that you love or is it about having the potential to create as much or as little income as you choose. Is business freedom about creating the business of your dreams, to be autonomous, to have no one to answer to but yourself. Or perhaps freedom is about building a team…

Collaboration Has No Borders!

  We all now juggle many job roles, spin lots of plates and wear several hats 24/7 so it pays to be able to enjoy freedom. To have the liberty to work anytime and anyplace we fancy sounds tempting and a valuable asset to many who have to fit the school run, checking on elderly parents or simply other commitments in their active lives. ‘Freedom’ might not be a word traditionally associated with ‘work’ but,…
