I Love Mowing!

I have a secret, I love mowing. Not the kind of mowing that involves the struggling to push the Victa zip-start, but the kind that involves sitting behind the wheel of something like this. Good thing I do, my mower has a little gauge that tells me I have spent 665 hours driving it. My…

The 3 “F”s of Change

“If you are miserable NOW, but not willing to change, you’ve got a problem” One of the reasons why many people seem to be stuck in their present situation is that they are unable to face change. There is no doubt that in order to improve our circumstances, be it in our business or our…

Lucky or Fortunate?

I sit on my back deck, look out at my little piece of paradise, and think how fortunate I am. Very often visitors to our place will tell us how lucky we are to have it, but I can tell you luck had nothing to do with it. In my mind, there is a great…

Are you taking the right path?

I love The Lord Of The Rings by J R R Tolkien. I first read the book in Year 9 at high school (too many years ago to divulge when that was!) and when I finished it, I immediately started at page one and read it again so transported was I. I must have re-read…

What is Real Advice?

I was sitting in my dentist’s chair the other day, after my umpteenth visit, yet another root canal over, when he suggested I had some other problems that he needed to discuss with me. Once I had mentally checked my bank balance and contemplated another series of hours staring at his ceiling I agreed to…

What exactly is superannuation?

I don’t know how many times I have had people say to me “Superannuation is a lousy investment” or “I don’t believe in Superannuation”. Statements like these come about because the person making them doesn’t really understand what superannuation is. Simply put superannuation is not an investment at all, much less a lousy one, it…

Keep it Separate, Keep it Safe

All of us in business know that it is an activity with an inflated level of risk. There are many external factors which can impact upon the performance of the business over which we have no control.
