Nyumba – it’s where it all started.

In my last year at university in 1993, I had no idea what I wanted to for a career. I was majoring in public policy so a public servant job was probably on the cards. But I didn’t really know what that meant.

Outstanding Entrepreneurial Alumnus Award (2019)

Tonight I attended the Griffith Business School’s annual Alumni dinner and was awarded the 2019 Griffith Business School Outstanding Entrepreneurial Alumnus Award. To say I was surprised is an understatement.

My first Sleep Pod experience.

I landed in Perth at around 12.30 Monday night. My connecting flight to Kalgoorlie was at 6.30am. By the time I got luggage, and then arrived at a hotel (or friends house) I’d lay down, I’d then be on the move back to the airport.

1 week, 5 towns, 3 talks

Today I worked from home – focused on study and preparation. It comes after 19 days of work (in Brisbane, Caloundra, Gold Coast, Barcaldine, and Toowoomba). Just so nice to stay put and not need to drive anywhere.

In our modeling, my ins and outs are outta sync, and in about 9 months it’ll all come crashing down.

Logging off … an update

Last week I wrote about logging off Facebook more as a way to manage time. Over Christmas and New Year because there was a little downtime I was checking into Facebook and the rest more than usual. But then once I got back to work, I was STILL logging in. I could feel myself getting out of control.

Logging off … not really … but more than usual.

So I’ve logged off Facebook. I know it must seem like “yeah and …. ?!” to a lot of people, but to me, it’s not so straightforward.

Why?

Bye 2018, it was a good year

2018 – my last year in my forties, no longer a mum of kids/teens, not working by myself in the business.

Some of the big things in 2018 included –
