How do you juggle working from home and family life?

Working from home used to be the exception, not the norm. But now, we find ourselves thrust into working from our kitchen table (or the garden), sneaking precious moments in our days to work. We are juggling looking after and home schooling our children, making sure we get our daily exercise and fresh air boost and checking in on our loved ones.   How do you juggle working from home and family life? You may…

How Business Freedom Enablers Help You Go The Xtra Mile

Become One With ONTRAPORT & Free Your Business

  Have you ever been immobilized by indecision? Dithered for ages over which bank to place your savings in, ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhed’ over which film to watch or music to listen to, wavered over which item of clothing to buy, only to falter even more when confronted with the vast abundance of clothing choice that’s available online once your unlock your phone or open your laptop? Whilst competition amongst banks and clothing brands and even…

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…

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….
