A few weeks ago, I blogged about change, and gave you a 3-step practical approach to change something you were unhappy with. Since then, I have received many Change Plans, sent from readers, who have gone ahead and implemented the 3-step approach, and it has been wonderful seeing you take charge!
So, this week, I want to share with you a 5-step approach to S.T.A.R.T. off on the right foot! Each of these steps are strategies, and they work best when stacked on top of each other, so I recommend to apply the 5 steps, one after the other. The S.T.A.R.T. approach does assume that you are ready, as in you have decided and committed to the change, and this is day 1. Continue reading
This week, I want to continue the conversation I had started months ago, when I discussed the importance of Surrounding Yourself With Excellence.
Isn’t it wonderful having your own business? You are free to pursue your passion. You set the rules and run your business your way.
Somewhere along the way though, you need to have some show of support, some validation of what you are doing. This will ultimately help you to stay motivated, and focused.
Having a strong support environment is one of the most important elements to consider when you start your business. This will carry you through countless situations that you can’t even foresee when you’re first starting out. A supportive environment is what will save you when you want to give up. The people who are part of your support remind you of your talents and strengths; they remind you why you’re in your business to begin with. They also guide and advises you when you need it.

Getting outstanding results requires organisation. Not necessarily the cleaning-up-your-desk kind (although that can’t hurt, either ;-), but organisation within yourself that will help you to better manage your life, career or business and the great results you will achieve.
What’s one of the first things that come to mind when you think of organisation? Chances are, it’s your to-do list. It doesn’t matter whether you keep your list on a Blackberry, on an iPhone, on your laptop, or on good old-fashioned paper, the point is that you have one. Maybe you even just keep it in your head. Lists in one form or another are virtually inescapable. Continue reading
When your vision and your dreams are big – surely, they are big, right? no point, in playing a small game… – at some point you’re going to ask yourself, “Exactly how do I do this?”
Of course you can achieve your dreams. But sometimes they’re so big, you don’t know what to do. Or maybe you know what to do but you’re not sure where to start.
