Hi Anastasia! Thanks for joining us on the Success Sessions Series.  Tell us a little bit about you and your business. I live in Calgary, Canada and I’m a mom to a sweet 2 year old boy who loves to eat and share food with others. I’ve always love food and dreamed of being a […]

Raise your Head: Where are you going?

Friday, January 30th, 2015

It’s easy to just keep going. Doing your daily duties. Plodding along, getting things done, checking them off your list, fighting fires if necessary. But where are you going? What’s the end goal? Do you know? Are you straying from the path? January is almost over, and it occurred to me that I have been […]

2015 is ORANGE

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

You may recall that usually, in January, I do an exercise to decide my 3 words for the year ahead. This year, I have a head-start on that, as I am taking part in Megan Flatt’s #MyTinyEmpire challenge over on Instagram (if you want to follow me this is my page: @joannab77)   The first […]

I’ve had a niche revelation!

Friday, November 14th, 2014

No matter if you are just starting out, or in business a while, you will no doubt have been informed (probably more than once) of the importance of identifying your niche. I know I certainly was – repeatedly. And I thought I had it sorted. I mean, I know this, I help others with it […]

Business inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Who inspires you in your business or your career? I’m thinking your professional life here, and not so much the personal life role models. Two years ago if you had asked me that question, the response would have been poles apart from the one today. Business inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and while […]

What does ‘freedom’ mean to you?

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

‘Freedom’ is one of those subjective words. The Oxford Dictionary defines it as ‘the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants’, and at it’s most basic level that works for me. But, on a personal level, it’s more than that, and prompts today’s question: What does ‘freedom’ mean to you? For […]

Steal this: productivity booster

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Working in 90 minute intervals appears to maximize our productivity, according to a study by K Anders Ericsson of Florida State University.   In this study, Ericsson found that the best performers were those who worked in 90 minute intervals beginning in the morning, and took recovery breaks in-between.   To maximize productivity,  “individuals must […]

Getting creative with creativity

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

I’ve been pondering ‘creativity’ of late. What does it mean, exactly? If you were to ask me, do I consider myself ‘creative’, I would answer with a wholehearted and honest ‘No’. I don’t consider myself creative. To me, the creative types are those who are good with paint, sewing, pottery, jewellery etc. You know, the […]

Intuition V Reason: the eternal conflict

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

I like the science. I want to know the facts. Give me the statistics and I’m more at ease. As a girl who considers logic and reason essential for decisions, this niggling ‘intuition’ issue has always been a source of conflict for me. The stats, the figures, the science, the logic… they all make sense […]
