I am nine this year!     Thursday, 3 April 2014

You are probably looking at my photo and thinking… seriously, she looks a bit older than nine… (only a bit, surely!) This year my marketing business, The Hub celebrates its ninth birthday. On 10 February 2005, I sat down at the computer for the first time, without a secure job, as The Hub Marketing Communications. [...]

When I die, please give this letter to my daughter     Wednesday, 23 October 2013

I know this sounds incredibly fatalistic and morbid of me, but I have written a letter to my daughters, just in case I should die. I am not dying, thankfully I am healthy and happy. My mother died when I was seven and because of this I feel like I have grown up with a [...]

I could easily give you the six secrets to SME success, and right now you are probably thinking, oh yeah that sounds great!

I refuse to give cancer a capital c     Wednesday, 5 June 2013

A friend died yesterday and I can’t stop crying. I knew he was sick and not doing well, but his death has taken my breath away. He was close to my age and only last week when we chatted and he was positive he was going to kick this ‘infection’. Today I found out it [...]

New Year Resolutions…. blah!     Tuesday, 8 January 2013

There is no doubt… if you want to change something in your life, the beginning of a new year is a great time to start momentum. You’re fresh from a holiday, enjoying the sunshine (in Australia anyway!) and return to work inspired to do things differently. I get it… I really do! But if you truly want to make [...]

Crazy time of the year, then back for more in two weeks…     Tuesday, 18 December 2012

If your wind-down towards Christmas has been anything like mine – it has been a bit manic, crazy, frantic and slightly overwhelming all at the same time. With everything that is happening around the world, I feel it is a good time to express my gratitude and love for my family and friends. AND my appreciation for the people I spend [...]

I am selfish. OK… weird way to start… let me clarify     Thursday, 13 December 2012

I am selfish. OK… weird way to start… let me clarify. I am selfishly invested in recognising the value women have in business… hang on, hang on… before you close this blog – hear me out. It has taken me 40 years to admit publicly that I am in fact a feminist. Growing up in the 80′s the term [...]

Get off your butt – do something important, today     Wednesday, 28 November 2012

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” – Nolan Bushnell We all [...]

The beginning…     Tuesday, 30 October 2012

Yes…after a couple of years of promising that I would start a blog, I have finally begun. I thought I would start with a video (so I didn’t have to write much – see I am cheating already!) I have a plan for this blog, to write about life, inspirational stuff and marketing all of [...]
