"We are products of our past, but we don't have to be prisoners of it." Rick Warren.

We're all very capable of making the same mistakes over and over again, because, under stress, we tend to retreat to habits of emotion regulated from our childhoods. Habits take over under stress, and in particular when physical or mental exhaustion sets in.
Without clients, no-one has a business. They are king in every sense of the world and unless they treat your people in a way that is not within your values of company culture, all organisations will benefit from having a client-first approach.
I love to write. It is a hobby and at times a job. I take it both seriously, and with a tongue in my cheek. I am not a qualified journalist, in that I never went to University to study Journalism, but I've been writing for 24 years and long before blogging, and self publishing became fashionable, I wrote for various editorials.

Sometimes, I can get a blog out in 15 to 20 minutes on a topic that I come up with just from the top of my head. Kind of like right now. Other times, I have to stay on message, and write about a topic that either readers are wanting to read about, or something that is pertinent to our audience for one reason or another.

It's funny how life's lessons keep popping up, and not too dissimilar to an 'aha' moment, they remind us of what path we choose to go on.

The adventures of the past few weeks have been absolutely phenomenal. Through travel and meeting people, my vision for work and life has become so clear that I literally cannot sleep with anticipation.

My life is full, but we all know that we should leave some room for the unknown. If we don't, something may pass us by that is a once in a lifetime opportunity, or something that we will never get back.

From failure, we learn how to be successful. From falling, we remember how to pick ourselves up and keep on walking. 

In life, we are a bunch of complex creatures, and whether we admit it to ourselves or not, we have many ups and downs on our road to our next destination and beyond.

I've had a pretty amazing life. I know that I have been privileged in so many ways; phenomenal family, great loyal long term friends, new friends and great loves. In many ways, I was prized with a place on the podium.

People often ask me how I do it. I travel continuously and have so for many years, without as much as blinking an eye lid. Booking my next flights is to me just part of the parcel of having a job that takes me across three continents.

We are taught to do so many things in business; how to hire people, how to inspire teams, how to make money, how to get sales in the door, how to increase your profits. The list is endless, and somewhat exhausting. How, as an entrepreneur, can we get it all right?

Last week Apple's stock dropped more than 7% - equivalent to $40billion worth of value. The reasons why are multiple, but it seems the key reason is falling iPhone sales. Whilst this news impacts the tech world directly, it also holds significance for marketers and business owners. What you need to know about iPhone sales is that it has the potential to impact how you communicate with audiences on a day-to-day basis.

Are consumers receptive to mobile adverts for a cheaper phone bill?

Unlockd, a Melbourne-based mobile tech startup just raised an additional $15million, backed by big names including Lachlan Murdoch. This mobile based platform combines the telco and digital advertising worlds to offer mobile users data and discounts in exchange for their attention.
