I'd be lying if I said that there weren't quite a few things that have held me back as an entrepreneur, and been the catalyst to 'not being an overnight success story'. 

After 17 years in business, I have created my dream job. I work for no-one. I answer to no-one. I go to work everyday with enthusiasm because I don't have to go to work - I just love every single bit about my job.

For all of Australia and New Zealand, we have just started a new financial year. Companies that are strategic and have long-term goals, often already have a marketing plan in place, while other's may have been busy getting their last set of figures in for the year, and missed doing the planning that is necessary to catapult their businesses in 2016/17.

It's raining outside and our whole Melbourne team is meant to be playing tennis as a team bonding session. 

A few of us are not so sure, mainly because we are women and we have things to go to after work which require our hair to be "beautiful". Rain is not conducive of that.

Randomly, I pick up two tennis rackets from my office and a whole heap of balls and then grab Lisa O'Keeffe, and we start playing tennis in the middle of the office. Firstly, you have to have an office big enough - which we have, and secondly, you have to be prepared for anything to happen. Broken computer screens, lights, dints in walls, people being hit - in general chaos. But what is the worse that can happen? Someone gets hurt? How hurt would you become from a tennis ball? I pinch of pain never hurt anyone, or at least that is what we all agreed.

Turning your business into an overnight success is near impossible unless you consider Whatsapp or the few freaky businesses that come through the cracks.

Hasn't what seemed like a brilliant idea at the time and a $150 million dollar money making machine in a very short period of time, just come tumbling down.

Well, if you take what's written in the press today as any indicator, then you can certainly think that this may be a conclusion.

The last week in New York was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

So many things happened, but mostly I have to say the city just absorbs all my creative juices and it makes me want to take on the world in every aspect of life.
"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.
