From falling, we remember how to pick ourselves up and keep on walking. In life, we are a bunch of complex creatures, and whether we admit it to ourselves or not, we have many ups and downs on our road to our next destination and beyond.I've had a pretty amazing life. I know that I have been privileged in so many ways; phenomenal family, great loyal long term friends, new friends and great loves. In many ways, I was prized with a place on the podium.

But with that comes a lot of 'stuff' and not all of it is great. As a child I remember being a bit of a silent dreamer. You know the one who never really tells anyone what their dreams are, and keeps them all to themselves. I had good friends then, and many are still the same friends that I have now. They have seen me evolve from a shy child, to an adult comfortable in her own skin.

I've failed more times than I can remember.

Managing Chaos

We all set goals, and strive to make the most of our time. You however, you exceed expectations. You are organized, you are punctual, a true hard worker and then your car shuts down. Your identity gets stolen during the peak of tax season, the plumbing in your home is depleting uncontrollably and your love life conveniently decides to crumble.

Oh how tempting it is to lay in bed in fetal position and compose symphonies of self-pity, but your boss just texted to inform you that your deadlines just got moved forward.
It’s easy to call this a series of unfortunate events, but in all reality, it’s just called life.

Chaos is inevitable but manageable nonetheless.

First step. Stop everything.

Why Everyone Should Fail

What ever you do don’t be afraid to fail!

Don’t be afraid to try something new, because you’re scared that you aren’t going to be good at it. As Nike says “Just Do It”! People fail all the time and when they do they only become stronger.  It is because of the mistakes we make we learn what and what not to do moving forward. It goes off the phrase “you don’t know what you don’t know and you wont know until you try” 

Fear and insecurities are the single biggest threats when becoming successful. Fear it’s self can significantly paralyze you and your business growth.

It seems so often that we focus on external perceptions of what we should or shouldn’t be doing. 

For me, 2016 is about, sharing what I know, giving all I got, and helping others achieve their goals. 

I’ve always felt that I’ve lived with abundance, even as a kid I had the sort of personality that led me to help, share, and try to look at the “bright side of life”. But this year I decided to step it up a notch, and actively consolidated my abundance philosophy across all aspects of my life and business in a tangible way.

Here’s how I’m doing it, and you can do it too:

Hey entrepreneurs, are you still sitting on your hands scared to make the next move when it comes to important business decisions? What is stopping you? Are you indecisive or do you have no idea what you should do next? So many entrepreneurs have awesome ideas, however so many of these ideas never get past the just an idea stage. We are almost a quarter of the way through 2016 and business people are still trying to figure out their next level plan. Stop and go agendas at the end of the only costs businesses time, money and an ability to be more successful.

Want To Gain a New Perspective on Marketing?

Working in marketing requires you to be on your toes and knowledgeable about different subjects and ideas. Dr. Seuss once wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know.” Reading a book allows you to get a crash course in almost any subject without stepping foot into a classroom.

We love reading here at Marketing Eye, so we put together five books that would help any professional gain some new ideas and perspective.

Can You Explain Your Business To A 6 Year Old?

Albert Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”

If you can’t effectively explain your business...a business in which YOU yourself immerse in everyday, in a few simple words then how are your customers going to understand it? If customers don't understand your business then they sure as hell don't understand the need for your service or product.

What I have learnt from my clients

As we close our offices today until the second week of January, I realise that it's time to reflect on our wonderful journey and what we have all learned this year.

We have had the most amazing experiences, namely through our people and clients, who constantly amaze me with their insights, perserverence and determination to kick goals.

Take Risks and Be Brave

As a professional services firm, we started the business hustling. Going to network events, speaking at every opportunity, and using our connections to bootstrap the growth of the company. We even used PR, which put me out of my comfort zone big time.
