Ever had a great idea in your head and found yourself stuck with where to start in getting it out and documenting it? This is something that used to happen to me regularly. That was until I discovered WorkFlowy.

I first stumbled upon WorkFlowy when it was mentioned in a Podcast by Kate Erickson on an Entrepreneur on Fire Podcast. It came up as one of the productivity tools she recommended so I took a look. Straight away I was hooked. I loved the simplicity of the app, its ease of use and the way it made focusing on one piece of work at a time so easy. …


My journey to better health and a ripper green juice recipe.

In 2018 I got hooked on making my own green juice and it changed my life for the better.

It was a rough start

In October 2017 I caught Influenza B. It hit me hard. Two visits to hospital, 3 weeks in bed not being able to get up and losing 10 kilos in 2 weeks. I lost all my energy and felt absolutely terrible. I soon recovered though and got on with life. As a result I became determined to improve my overall health and wellbeing.

I was already listening to Podcasts and audiobooks and as my sleep was all over the place, I set out to find something to help with getting better rest and recovery for my body. I stumbled upon Shawn Stevenson and his book, Sleep Smarter. It made a big difference and I was soon listening to Shawn’s podcasts regularly. On one of his podcasts he interviewed Dr. Mark Hyman. During this episode they dived into Mark’s 10 day blood sugar detox program and his background and views on Functional Medicine which I found fascinating. The detox program sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a go and purchased the Audiobook. It didn’t take too long before I was hooked! I wanted to implement it immediately. I spent time each day listening to the Audiobook on my regular walk and made notes immediately after, using WorkFlowy of course. …

As a general rule, I don’t invest in things I don’t understand. I have found this to be true also for many business owners, particularly when it comes to their online presence, digital footprint and SEO.

Most business owners I talk to don’t totally understand Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and it, therefore, becomes something they don’t believe they need to invest time on or something they would just rather not deal with, throwing it in the ‘too hard’ basket. That is, until it becomes something they have to deal with. This often proves a challenge when starting a new project or getting involved in helping a client with their organic reach. It’s difficult to get someone to invest in something they can’t see. …

As messaging apps continue to fight for our attention, there is a real opportunity arising to connect with your online audience and potential clients where and when it counts most. Online messaging apps can open up new opportunities for your business, your network, and your customers.

For the past few months, I have been looking for better ways to connect with my audience outside of my email newsletter. I wanted to engage more effectively with both visitors to my website and leads I was nurturing in a way that was timely and efficient.

The journey kicked off and I started looking into online chat services. I learned a lot! Some things I learned from a bot but for the most part, it was a journey of trial and error. I want to share my thoughts, experiences, and recommendations to help you make an informed decision if you’re thinking of looking for better ways to engage with your audience or just become more accessible to visitors to your website. …

Google’s Campaign URL Tool is a simple, free tool that helps you build a campaign specific tracking URL. These tracking URL’s are URL’s that contain additional information that will be passed to your Google Analytics account, allowing you to report on and understand how successful your marketing campaigns are.

I personally use tracking URL’s for things like; links in my email auto signature, email campaign links and links provided to third parties that link back to my content. This way, I can track the clicks in my own Google Analytics account and not rely on reports from anyone else.

Why you should be creating campaign URL’s

Utilising referral and campaign tracking URL’s enables you to obtain a better understanding of your website visitors journey through your website as well as how successful your marketing and promotional campaigns are or are not. …


This really hit home today on my mid-afternoon walk to get away from the desk today. Most of us are most likely very familiar with Gary Vaynerchuk and his story, but there are some new nuggets in this one that need to be shared.

His view on parenting and nurturing confidence is refreshing and articulated so well.

Thumbs up to Heather Monahan for sharing this talk and kicking off the Creating Confidence podcast.

Give it a listen below and hit up the Gary V Audio Experience for more.

Bali Swing — Ubud

Bali is an amazing place. It is truly a unique travel destination and has a lot to offer those looking to experience Indonesian culture and be immersed in the kindness of its local people.

My wife and I recently spent 7 days in Bali and as a first-time visitor to the island, it was certainly an experience to remember and one that opened my eyes to the local way of life.

We were fortunate to be in Bali for Nyepi New Year. Nyepi is a Balinese “Day of Silence”. A Hindu celebration, it is commemorated every Isakawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar. Nyepi, a public holiday in Indonesia, is a day of silence, fasting, and meditation for the Balinese. Nyepi ran over two days from March 7 to 8th. While there were activities on at the hotel we stayed at, we chose to relax for the day and spend it inside our hotel room relaxing. …

Are you considering building an online community? Well, there are a few key elements you should take into consideration. Keeping in mind a community is two-way interaction, unlike an audience which is one way — a community is socially active and look to share content with their friends and social circles at every chance.

With this in mind, I have put together a list of ten key practices I believe will help build a strong and successful community.

1. Content

It’s been said plenty of times before, ‘content is king’. This has not changed over time and still remains one of the key components of any successful website and online community. It is your content that will continue to drive traffic to your website and bring people back. …

Finding balance can mean different things to different people. For most of us it typically means spending an appropriate amount of quality time with family while putting enough hours into our work for an acceptable reward.

I gave this topic of finding balance some thought recently while away on a brief holiday in Bali because as usual, I found it hard to ‘switch off’ (at least for the first couple days).

Life can be a challenge

Let’s be real for a minute, some days can be harder than others. We all go through ups and downs and we each have our own interpretation of events and react and respond differently. Our thoughts become reality, we’ve heard that before, and life can get in the way of achieving many of our daily goals. …
