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.

This blog today is written by myself and is only my opinion, so please do not crucify anyone that works for me, as they all have different opinions, each of which I not only appreciate but respect.

I was kindly invited to a number of International Women's Day events today and declined, as I do every year since the first time I went to one and watched a number of women stand up and talk about "how good they are" or "how the glass ceiling existed as they climbed the ladder."

It disgusted me

Entrepreneurs beware!!!! Are you still sitting on your hands instead of making very important business decisions because you are so indecisive or you have no clue which way to go and are not prepared to take the risk?

So many entrepreneurs have amazing ideas. True. So many them never see them through. Fact.

Yesterday I was bursting at the seams. Life couldn't get much better. I had a few meetings and they went so well, that I literally couldn't stop smiling and that feeling deep inside was one that I haven't felt in a long time.

It's time to step it up!

There is so much going on this time of year, it is ridiculous. Usually, I do the smart thing and disappear overseas or head up to the family property in Queensland to hang with my family, but this year, I am staying put... well, for now.

I have so much to do as I have alluded to in previous blogs; Marketing Eye's expansion plans, Licensing the Marketing Eye model, a new technology platform that I have developed and a new tech company that I am about to go into capital raising mode for. On top of that, I have my passion project, The World Incubator, and selfishly a holiday overseas to the snowfields.
