Entrepreneurship

What to do when all of a sudden you aren't getting the small things right
Something that I live by in business is systems, processes and technology. Together they make a formidable trio.

Running businesses can be incredibly hard, well at least I think so. It takes a tough person to go through all the challenges that you are faced with from a day-to-day basis and just when you think you have nailed it, something else comes up and remind you that you haven't.

If you are constantly challenged by the fast pace of change, then don't worry - so is the rest of the world. We are all in catch up mode and it isn't something that too many of us like, until we catch up and realise that we were worried about absolutely nothing.

I've never thought that far ahead. It's not because I don't dare to think about the future, but more to do with the fact that I am in the present, working through one 'to do list' item after another.
Over the past few weeks, a friend of mine has approached me to give them some tips and guidance on being an entrepreneur. They have been a seasoned professional, in the same field for 20 years, and now they feel they are finally ready to take the leap.

The problem is, they don't know where to start. Well, they do, but they haven't quite grasp how much they have to do to get the ball rolling.
Life is to be lived, only by your own standards - not someone else's
It's that time of year, when we all start to feel the pinch. What is it that we want to achieve by the years end and what will 2018 look like.

For many of us, we have kicked some goals in 2017, but didn't quite stick to our New Years' Resolutions. If you are constantly on the improve, and wanting to grow as an individual, and in your careers or business, you know that you have to work out what is stopping you from reaching your full potential.
Young and Strong Female Entrepreneurs Under 30
What if women make the first move and send the first message?
Entrepreneurship: John Horan's success story
Entrepreneurs are extraordinary people as their ability to create an opportunity, innovate a new idea and build a brand whilst overcoming adversity is astonishing.

Why women have to make bigger choices than men
I'm celebrating 18 years as an entrepreneur and I can safely say that there are still a few more years to come.
When an internship turns you into a buddying entrepreneur
Yesterday was the last day of an internship for a young man who had chosen Marketing Eye Melbourne as the place he was going to learn and work out where he wants to be after he graduates.

Last days are always hard. Firstly, if you have finished everything that you were working on, you tend to just do task that have to be done, rather than projects that may benefit your internship and future employment prospects. Secondly, it's a day of reflection. What did you get out of your internship? Was it worthwhile? Are your colleagues friends of the future? Do you want to work at the company that you did your internship at? Have you chosen the right career path? Are you more confused than ever?
When you turn your business upside down, crazy things happen
Less hustle, more bustle. That's what I say. I know most entrepreneurs talk about how they hustle their way to success. I can safely say, I have not. In fact, I dream of being a hustler, but fall dissimile short of this in every way possible because I am one of those people who can tell you what I do if you ask, but won't broadcast due to the fact that I am actually shy.
Playing with the big boys
In not so many words, the other day I was told that I couldn't play with the big boys because they had more money and could get a software solution out faster than I could. It was devastating to hear, but it was the second time this person who I respect immensely has said this to me.

Did most of the tech companies that became billion dollar enterprises not start from garages? Did they have hundreds of millions to play with when they started? I don't think so. So, why would I not be able to self fund my startups that are disruptive and bring to the market products and solutions that will change the game?
Why confidence is key to getting anything off the ground
If you don't believe in it, why do it? 

I had breakfast with 'the devil's advocate' this morning. A dear friend who always asks a lot of questions and is possibly so seasoned that instead of having a glass half full when a new idea or business starts, he spends a little too much time in focusing on what won't work.
The entrepreneur in me is going crazy
"The new girl is always prettier than the girl that you took to the dance" as Jack Cowin, Canadian/Australian billionaire and owner of Hungry Jacks and major shareholder of Dominos continually reminds me - and with good reason.
The highs of entrepreneurship
I opened my email and received two emails that literally have me jumping for joy. As a serial entrepreneur I know only too well the highs and lows of business. Sometimes the challenges feel like they are insurmountable, then other times, you know that you've been there before.
Why you are fearless and you don't even know it
When you decided to apply for your first job, you knew that there was a chance that your potential employer may not a) like you b) think you have the right skills c) consider you as a candidate d) work out what you bring to the table.

Most probably, you pondered one of these things or all of them before you went to your first interview. It may have created some nerves, or made you anxious. Perhaps, you did the opposite, and sounded overly confident and a tad cocky, when in fact  you were shaking in your boots.
