As we head into another week, I take great pleasure in sharing my curated articles, tips & tools in a short read that will hopefully give you a few ‘aha’ moments as well as some laughter or joy. Most of all I hope it gives you pragmatic inspiration & helps you on your journey to doing what you love, with people you love, making a huge difference, being compensated appropriately with time to pursue other passions – #TheEOSLife.

Here’s this week’s business tip, life hack & find of the week… Some of them are original, most are things I have come across in my weekly pursuit of self-improvement & living a better life, through creating a better business. And don’t forget the inspirational quote, which you can download as a wallpaper or lock screen for your phone.

As always, if you find great things that you’d like to share then feel free to email me for inclusion in one of my weekly newsletters. I’m always looking for new & exciting things to share each week. And if you think someone else would like to receive the newsletter in their inbox, directly from my inbox (no newsletter apps used here!) then please let me know –


The value of core values.

I love Patric Lencioni – in fact, I’m one of his biggest fans-girls!

But so is Gino Wickman & that’s why a lot of the work that Pt does is built into the EOS model & framework.

One of the 8 questions we ask ourselves on the V/TO is, ‘what are our core values?’.

As Patric explains, core values are built-in and natural to your company. You don’t just make them up and hope to achieve them; they are already ingrained.

Learn more about core values and your minimum standards of behaviour in this quick video .


How many days are you working in a week?

Research has revealed that the average office worker is productive for less than 3 hours out of the workday! If you break down what you are doing each workday, do you, too, fit into this statistic? To change how we work, we need to be open to the possibility that our methods are not as efficient as they could be. Have you heard of a 4-day workweek? You might think this is counter-productive, but Microsoft Japan’s 2019 4-day week trial yielded a 39% increase in productivity. And yes, they get paid for 5 days & only work 4!

It’s something that I am implementing for my team in 2023 (When I find that new Integrator & Executive Assistant!). Find out more here.

Design on your own terms

Living in an online world now, graphic design has become such an important aspect of our daily lives, probably without you even realising how much you see it! When you add the right image and write in an aesthetically pleasing design, you can draw your target audience in and deliver the right message. Dzynspace is a free NZ-made design tool that I have been using for the past year and love it. I would love to hear how you have used it, the design work you have created and your feedback on its ease and simplicity.


How To Add A Zero To Your Income?

I was invited to Nicky Billou’s The Thought Leadership Revolution Podcast earlier this year. Scaling a business might mean reaching a new level of efficiency in several areas, which might take effort for some entrepreneurs or every type of business. However, I am passionate about helping people, and their businesses find the framework needed to propel them forward in all aspects, including ultimately allowing entrepreneurs to live their best lives. So, listen to this podcast to find out How to Add a Zero to Your Income!
