I'm sitting at the Qantas Lounge at the Melbourne International Airport ready to board another flight to Los Angeles. I am a tad tired. 2.15am wakeup wasn't my best work, but sometimes excitement does get the best of me. Travelling for me, is exciting and part of the bigger adventure. I get to meet people that inspire me, shock me and sometimes join me on my journey as a friend, client or person "I just know".

Meeting people when you are an introvert is completely and utterly out of your comfort zone, and I know the value of being outside your comfort zone. It's one of the best things that can happen, especially if you are an entrepreneur.

It's been a hectic few months and this week has been no different. 

With the weekend upon us, I can safely say that the next few months I am only focused on Marketing Eye, technology development and the people who have already been in the incubator and need my support. It's time to pass on the baton for all the things I have become so passionately involved with, and focus on my own backyard - so to speak.

10 Reasons Busy People Are Successful

I have never been more busy in my life. I remember 2 years ago feeling completely overwhelmed by having so much on my plate, and feeling as though I was floundering.

I kept on taking on more 'stuff' and it wasn't a case of not being able to say no. I simply wanted to do all the things I was doing and they were important to me. I hired two personal assistants and that worked wonders, except I decided that they were too good to be personal assistants and moved them promptly into other roles.

What the hell are you going to do?

I had an early mark yesterday as I wasn't feeling the best and of course, after falling asleep at 3pm, I woke up in the middle of the night.

Are you curious about where you are going?

I'm sure many of you are like me, and you ask yourself "Where am I going?". 

It's a common conversation that one has with oneself when you are looking deep within and trying to ascertain what it is you want out of life and how you are going to actually get there. It is when you don't have those conversations with yourself that you really have to worry.

I was shocked when a friend of mine told me that his house was broken into in Townsville. Yet another break-in that seems to now be the norm for a town that has 10.1% unemployment rate (Source: ABS Labour Force Survey) or according to ABC article in June 2016, a 13.9% unemployment rate. Townsville now boasts one of the highest jobless rates in Australia.

Years ago I met Megan Burton, purely by accident. She had bought a company that Marketing Eye did marketing for, and asked if she could work with us.

At the first meeting, I was very surprised. Having gotten use to the brash American, go-getting attitude that sometimes can be confronting for an Australian, I was expecting more of the same from her. Instead, I sat down with a great, wholesome, Southern woman, who was awe-inspiring. She talked about the business like it was no big deal that in her early 30's she had built to sell tens of millions of security technology to Fortune 200 companies. I did the sums in my head, and straight away I realised that she was something special. Someone I can learn from.

I've been in the Netherlands for 4 days and I am mesmerized, as always, with its sheer beauty. From harbour views through to fields of everything imaginable, you watch from the side a sustainable country go about its day on bikes, without seamingly a care in the world.
Growing up in rural township, Charters Towers, has its positives and negatives. Firstly, with so much time on your hands, you really do have time to think, and dream.

The negatives, believe it or not, I forgot. But my journey back as an adult, the ‘small town syndrome’ hit me firmly straight in the face, knocked me back a few steps and as I was about to trip, I somehow found my feet and continued.
