What is holding me back?

Wow! I really mean WOW! Today has been a phenomenal day, and a catalyst for change.

Taking some good advice from a friend, I have been on the road to a new journey of self-discovery and it is a complete eye-opener.

Life has many twists and turns and you never know what is around the corner.

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.

Well like most Australians I was expecting to come to work this week knowing who is governing our country... and all being able to move forward with our business plans with some semblance of normality… 

And yet we woke up Sunday to a collective “WTF?”…
So alas, here we are again with a potential hung parliament and the country holding our breath as final ballots are counted… and Pauline Hanson in the senate. Don’t even get me started on that.

So what does this mean for business owners in Australia?

Did that really happen in New York?

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're Screwed!

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?

As our online network of friends continues to expand, social media companies and their newsfeeds transform and evolve as well.

On March 15th 2016, Instagram, the fastest growing social media network, announced their latest update: an algorithm-based, personalised newsfeed. This means that photos and videos will no longer appear in chronological order, rather, appear based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post.

Never stretch yourself so far that when the rope can't take it any more, it springs back so far that there is far too many creases to fix. The business person who has the most ideas, doesn't always win, unless of course, they have a team of people who have learned that while they may have great ideas, they are terrible at execution.
Sometimes I think I have it all sorted. Things will be normal, or at the very least, my version thereof.

Many of us crave stability in our lives, yet when something becomes too stable, we reject it or think that something is wrong.

What's Your Dominant Personality Trait?

NOTE: This blog is a guest feature written by our Marketing Eye Atlanta office.

The other day Marketing Eye Atlanta, as a team, decided to take the Myers Briggs personality test. What an eye-opening experience this was for all of us. We came to the conclusion is that our team is very diverse. Before taking the test some personality traits were obvious, but others were hidden talents that had not been discovered until completion of this test. Not only was the test great for gaining more insight into our co-workers personalities but it was valuable for personal reflection.
