A couple of weeks ago we ran out of water. Some of you may know that we live on a piece of paradise in the Southern Highlands which has only one disadvantage – no town water! Photo by Luis Tosta on Unsplash We have lived there for 25 years and we have perhaps bought water half a dozen…

Only Value Is What You Can Charge For

Most days, I go for a walk along Wollongong’s Blue Mile around lunchtime. As well as taking time out of the office to reset (which we might talk about in a future article), it also gives me pause to reflect on how fortunate we are to have this asset on our doorstep. The walk itself…

Who Doesn’t Need A Coach?

I have used business coaches for more than 30 years. Very few are currently engaged in my profession or businesses (they’re coaches, right? – in the business of coaching) Without exception, all of these coaches have added significant value to me and my business. The very best of them have changed the way I think…

The Next One

For years I have been fascinated by this guy. I have written about him, presented about him, made videos involving him, read several books about him and watched lots of documentaries. I had the good fortune to see him and the Stones a year or two ago, and they, and in particular Keith, were in…
