This week has been all about BBQs with my family; starting my location independent journey up the East Coast of Australia, checking in with my gorgeously proactive VIP coaching clients; drafting email autoresponders (more about that in a minute) and finishing my new about page (would love your feedback).
A extra special highlight has been visiting Sally, Ryan and Charlie, owners of Seven Creeks, sweet friends and clients of Better Business Better Life. Sally and Ryan raise grass-fed cattle and sheep on the family farm then deliver their paleo-friendly bulk meat packs to Melbourne-based customers.
Now before I get into this week’s links I’d love to know, what are you most pressing questions about email autoresponders? Is your email sequence generating sales for you? What’s stopping you from getting the emails written and scheduled? Tell me in the comments.
This edition of #ExplosiveContent Collection includes…drum roll please…
The best time to start was yesterday, the next best time is now.
Ah the joys of a new year – such fresh, vibrant energy circulating; such hope for the future; renewed belief in the possibilities.
So many blog posts circulating telling us how to set goals for the year ahead; how to exceed expectations and maintain our resolutions.
Theoretically the new year started 42 days ago. You could say I’m a little late to the party but I say whatevs (actually I wouldn’t say that, you can punch me if I ever use the word again, but you get the idea.)
Frankly you can declare a start over whenever you desire. You can act like a #bossman or #bosswoman or rather you should if you own a business.
But if you are going to mark this moment in history as a do-over here are two exercises to make it worthy of its mark.
1. Review the previous period to identify the wins and the woes. What lessons can you learn and take with you in the year ahead?
Hey you! It’s about time you were in the know.
Ever feel like you’re out of the loop and missing the critical stuff? Or frankly your ego is cactus with FOMO? *fear of missing out
Good news, I have the answer for you.
It’s a new series called…
Each week you’ll get links to the latest you need to know about.
It’ll be client attraction, list building and business growth focused with the occasional need-it-now goodie added in.

Balboa Park is the most beautiful area in all of San Diego. Inspired by Spanish architecture, the many museums, water features and galleries throughout the park are simply divine. The thirty artist studios, the tea house even the walk from the car park were simply enchanting.
A beautiful friend recommended I visit Prado Restaurant while exploring Balboa Park and I’ll be forever grateful I did.
Sun bathed umbrellas shielded me from the harsh Californian sun while I enjoyed a sumptuous salad on the terrace. Soft music drifted through on the gentle breeze while the wait staff took care of my every whim.
If I could have moved into this paradise I would have left and returned with my worldly possessions by nightfall. Alas it couldn’t be so.
Words don’t do justice (nor my lack of photography skills).
That was just one of my magical days in the United States of America. I returned to Australia only ten days ago and yet before I caught my flight out of Phoenix I was planning my return.
There were so many highlights over my 29 days in America I struggle to choose a favourite. It’s like asking a parent to choose between children.
Meeting and spending time with Kimberly Kling, my friend of four years and web designer to a number of my clients, was like catching up with a sister and best friend all rolled in one. Her adorable family welcomed me with open arms and love in their hearts.
I am so grateful to many people:
- Salaam Willis – my roomie for the Rise Live
- Robyn and Don – my buddies at both conferences
- Rebecca Berggren, Mylinda Power and all my fellow BSchoolers I met on the West Coast
- Rooby, Marlena and Anna
to mention just a few.
But why am I telling you all this? Why should you care? What difference does it make to you?
