The DNA of a Business Owner: Are you an accidental business owner?

Linda Business, Business coaching, Life Stuff Leave a Comment

Speaking from experience, I know that most business owners eat, breathe and live everything about their business on a day-to-day basis. When you run your own business there are no set hours, there’s no 9 – 5 stability, only a 24/7 workload. I’m sure I’m not the only one that has worked all through the night fuelled by coffee and …

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. In fact, many home-based sole traders struggle to strike a healthy work/life balance because the lines are more …

8 Things No One Tells You About Running a Six Figure Business

Linda Business, Business coaching, Life Stuff, Mindset Leave a Comment

There is so much on social media from people either claiming they are earning 6 or 7 figures or they can help you achieve 6 or 7 figures.

It’s that time of the year… 2 days to go until we close the door on 2018 and open up to the excitement and endless possibilities of 2019.
Clearly like everyone else, I’ve taken some time out to review 2018 and set some time aside to clearly consider the coming year. I did all the business planning weeks ago, but I wanted to set some time aside for me to consider my personal direction for 2019.

It’s that period between the hype of Christmas and New Year. Typically busy in my household as it’s my husband’s birthday on the 27th, so when you’re starting to think about stopping with all the excesses we have another celebration.
