Position Description – Finance Manager_LC
Travel is one of the best things for clearing your mind and really being able to concentrate on what makes your heart sing. By default, in doing so can also upset the current apple cart, specifically if you realise that what you’re doing is not cutting it, i.e. it’s time for a change.
Over the 2015-15 break, I was most fortunate enough to spend time in Antarctica. Talk about getting away from it all! But as a business owner, I also appreciate how tricky it is to be able to arrange time away like this, amongst other things.
Whilst I didn’t have such a business-change epiphany this time around, I have in the past so I fully appreciate how hard it is to then return to bring the change to fruition, and how big a deal it may end up being…
As a business owner, changing can be tricky though, especially if you have others reliant on you, whether they be suppliers, customers or staff. That said, it can be done, yes really. I’ve done it, I’ve helped others do it and you can too.
Granted, it will take some time and effort to execute but getting out is doable if you are prepared to do what it takes. This means thinking and possibly acting differently than you have previously. For some, this can be confronting, but if the need to succeed is stronger than the need to maintain the status quo, then the outcome can prove most desirable.
You’re not going to know if you don’t at least explore options.
And that’s where I come in…
Talk to me about what you have, what you want to do/have instead and I allow me to help you realise your new dream! You’re invited to email me to book a date/time for a chat firstname.lastname@example.org
Just think, 30 minutes dedicated to asking all those niggling questions that you’ve had sitting in the back of your mind for some time but just not got around to asking… NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!

Further to yesterdays post, it just so happens that we, the public, can comment on this most important matter…
The Australian Productivity Commission has released a draft report into Childcare and Early Childhood Learning, and has invited the public to comment on it via written submission or by attending public hearings. Find out details here.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GATHER JUST ABOUT EVERY INFLUENTIAL WOMAN TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT WORKING FAMILY ISSUES? THIS…
“Setting the tone for the Summit, President Barack Obama penned a blog for the Huffington Post in which he wrote, “Family leave, childcare, flexibility and a decent wage aren’t frills. They’re basic needs. They shouldn’t be bonuses–they should be the bottom line.” Read on
Most entrepreneurial mothers have become just so because a job environment could not address their needs/wants over:
- length of time, quality of hours, etc (family leave)
- cost and availability of childcare
- working hours to do what needs to be done plus the need to do stuff on the fly (flexibility)
- earning good money for the effort put in (decent wage)
How well these are executed (in a business context) is debatable but nonetheless the impetus to give a business a red hot go is usually driven through wanting to address these quality of parenting and lifestyle issues.
Thank you to Guy Kawasaki and Adriana Huffington for this enlightened SlideShow… please pay attention.
A great reminder for us all (Yes, me included), about this nothing of “busyness”.
Does anyone ever tell you, when asked how they are, that they are not busy?
“Oh, I’ve got a lot on”, or “busy, busy, busy”, or “always” seem to be a fairly typical type response when asked “how goes it?”
