After being one of hundreds at a Jewish wedding yesterday, I couldn't help but think about life and the meaning of what I am doing now and in the future.

For 44 years, life has been remarkably smooth sailing. I have experienced a lot, none of which I would change, and I have accomplished more than I dreamed of doing. The experiences not only make you stronger, more resilient and grateful, they shape who you are and continue to become.

What if women make the first move and send the first message?

I've had the month from hell - in a good way. Each morning I wake at 4am and I do social media for a client for the first hour, then connect with the US for the next hour - all before hopping in the shower.

What the future workforce looks like

“Humans and machines – each on their own – won’t be enough to drive businesses in the coming decades. Tomorrow’s leading enterprises will be those that know how to meld the two effectively” – Accenture.

It’s those forward-thinking businesses who have adopted robotics, automation software and technologies, that have increased their productivity by over 200% evidence suggest. This helps re-affirm what the future workforce will look like: human and digital interaction on a daily basis.

How can your business learn from Apple's success?

With the launch of the new iPhone 8, 8s and X, no doubt there will be queues in all major capital cities for the coveted device, despite prices reaching almost $2,000 AUD for their X model. People have begun posting jobs on Airtasker, which is an online marketplace to outsource jobs, willing to pay up to $300 for people to line up for them to buy the new iPhone on the day of release.

The question is one that every marketer should know how to answer, how has Apple created an offering so compelling that it pulls customers towards their product? Despite Apple providing no discounts and premium pricing.

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 you are a successful woman, you are expected to be a whole heap of things, even if some of them you are 'faking it until you make it'.

I know first hand how much I have to perform. I have to hold a room in a meeting, and ensure that I am articulate, on point and relevant. In the office, I have to look like a leader and inspire my team to be high performers. At lunch with clients, I am on a stage. I have to entertain, say things worthwhile, make them laugh and show them that there is a real person under this business persona. At a staff Christmas party, I have to show my team that I am one of them, but I can't drink too much (not that I want to), and I am completely responsible for every persons behaviour and safety.

When someone has a problem, drop everything

A huge wake up call happened to many people I know last night, and it was a shocking reality. When someone needs you, they need you. They may not come outwardly in saying what is the exact problem or what they are going through, and that is something we all need to be reminded of.

Successful people never quit

The world works in wonderful ways, and quite often we don’t even realise it.

We were all meant to be doing the things we are doing, for the time we are doing it. That is a fact.
