    Self-care resolutions for finding happiness in the new year

    Every single year, we celebrate the first day. January 1st is a day to be happy because right in front of you is a whole year stretched ahead and it’s totally blank. The pages in the calendar are fresh and untouched. Sure, the bills you pay are still the same; when the rent is due it’s due, but you get a chance to look at your life and make changes, without the baggage of the previous year on your shoulders. There will be some things that are permanent in your life, such as family, friends, and career, that you will carry through with you, but you have the opportunity to make as many changes as you like to enrich your life and find inner happiness. Finding what makes you happy, or what will enhance how happy you already are lies in your ability to give yourself the care that you deserve. (more…)

  • Making the most of the worst situation

    Making the most of the worst situation

    So many horrible things happen to people, but you never think that one of those things will happen to you. However, the council for disability awareness reported that around 25% of people in their 20s would become disabled at some point during their careers. And with the average time taken off work for these instances is three years – which can be a huge gap when it comes to finances. (more…)

    How to improve work environment in the office

    The type of atmosphere you want to create around the office demonstrates the kind of business you want to run. Are you looking for a very traditional cubicle, water cooler, get-on-with-your-work type office, or, have you been inspired with work hard, play hard culture of the Googles and Facebooks of the world: the startup office culture, as it were.

    How to work from anywhere

    Ah, millennials. We are dreamers and travellers. Born between 1980 and 2000, we have been called the “Me, Me, Me Generation”, and there are good reasons for this, the selfie being the most obvious one of them. When it comes to working, we are free birds and like thinking we will be able to start our own business someday, writing for a great blog or showcasing products for a number of clients on Instagram.

  • Debt- free bird: getting your finances under control in 2018

    Debt- free bird: getting your finances under control

    The problem with debt is that it’s often a slippery slope. Easy to get into and so hard to get out of- even some of the most organised people who lent money with the best of intentions have found themselves in this position. Once lenders can see you’re making regular payments, they’re keen to lend more and more money, and in time you can end up with repayments that are large and unmanageable. Just paying the minimum payment each month is just covering the interest, so the actual balance doesn’t go down. However, it is possible to get out of debt, reduce your stress levels and put yourself on the path to a brighter financial future. Here’s how you can go about it! (more…)

    3 Smart ways to manage your money

    Money management is the kind of thing that really should be taught at school, but somehow never really is. It doesn’t matter whether you are a multimillionaire or you are scraping by each week, managing the money you have and making it work for you is really important for making the most of what you have.

  • You need an always online business for an always online world

    You need an always online business for an always online world

    If there’s one thing that you can say about the modern era, it’s that we’ve never been more connected than we are right now. Say whatever you want about the internet, social media, and the dominance of the digital world, there’s no turning back from the fact that pretty much everyone is always online all of the time. Of course, if there’s one place where this is having more of an impact than just about anywhere else, it’s in business. If you think that your business can survive without embracing the reality of a constantly online world, then you’re either incredibly naive, or you have some kind incredible insider knowledge that no one else in the modern business world is privy to.  The reality is that a modern business can’t succeed without being online any more than it can succeed without embracing modern marketing techniques. If you try and live in the past, then you’re doomed to fall behind the competition. Sure, keeping pace with the fast-moving modern world can be a serious challenge, but it’s something that you have to consider very carefully if you really want your business to be a success. With that in mind, here are a few of the benefits of getting your business online. (more…)
