Nailing the "Group Hug"

They are an affectionate bunch - by accident. It's not how they intended to be and it certainly is not politically correct to hug your colleagues particularly in this era of 'harassment' claims, but someone had to do it, and they did it right.

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world of endless PTO, stunning vacation destinations, and perfect work-life balance? Unfortunately for most small business or startups, this is the stuff of dreams. They are often more focused on “surviving” than “thriving”.

When the focus is on “surviving”, the more creative aspects of a business such as content marketing can be stifled. Keeping up with emerging technologies and societal trends and consistently meeting the customer’s ever-changing needs is exhausting. To make it a little easier, we broke it down for you.

Are you tired of posting blogs on your business’s website and not receiving hits? Sick of sending newsletters and not getting high open rates?

One of the biggest myths small businesses owners believe to be true is that press releases are only successful for large businesses. You do not have to have to have a full public relations department or be a huge corporation to attract media attention.

This quarter can make or break your business - so what are you going to do about it?

People are pausing and what that means to business is that we are all in a position where we need to "change" what we are doing, and make sure we are listening very clearly to what our clients and prospects are saying.

Expanding to the United States was singularly the bravest thing I ever did, and it has set me up for profitability in the company in US dollars while the Australian dollar remains weak. Our offices make money and it has been an absolutely amazing journey. I have met some phenomenal people, all of whom have added to my life.

It also lead to a bit of "excitement" in my life. I was at a stage where I needed something to lift my game and expanding into the US market did exactly that.
