Mary and her team at Armani are simply amazing. They have so much style and professionalism, that just by entering their store, you could learn a thing or two about how to ensure your brand is consistent across every touch point.
Koonyum Range Retreat in Byron Bay is one of Australia’s most exclusive and private retreats that not only offers you the chance to stay in one of only 2 chalets or the main residence (if you prefer), but they also encourage you to bring along your family dog.
The year end is near and I personally can’t wait. It has been one of the most exciting and exhilarating years ever from a business perspective and from a personal front, one of the most challenging.
In the business I have learnt a lot, launched new products, entered new markets and been inspired continually by the people I work with – in particular, the small businesses that I call ‘friends’ but may also be called clients to the outside world.
Small businesses around the world suffer from many different things, but one of the worst would have to be getting stuck in a rut of ‘just getting by’ or being ‘stagnant’.Working ‘in’ the business and not ‘on’ the business is a very normal trap that many small business owners fall into and then after years of working long hours they wonder why the business isn’t in the position that they thought it would be.When you are an entrepreneur, you tend to have ideas. In fact, it is what you lay awake at night thinking about and wonder why the next day you feel a little worse for wear.
It can happen! All it takes is a good hard look at your brand, your value proposition and how you are communicating it to the market – and of course, a Marketing Eye.
Some things don’t just look delicious – they are! Here is one of my favourite shops at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. If you have a few Euros left in your pocket, be sure to pick up some of these sweets that are truly mouth watering. Their packaging also makes for the perfect gift.
I read blogs every day. Some are good, some are terrible. It still amazes me though that the ones that are visited frequently, like Marketing Eye’s blog, tend to have information that is relevant to its target audience.
My earliest memory of my birthday is when I was 7 years old and I thought my Mum and Dad had forgotten my birthday. I was devastated.
I was cutting it fine trying to make a meeting in South Melbourne the other day and low and behold, as I drove through Albert Park Lake, some ducks decided to cross the road really slowly. 5 minutes later, I was back enroute to my meeting with Melbourne’s top recruitment company for IT professionals.
