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 –


Is it time to get off the Hamster Wheel?

You know what it’s like – I’m sure you’ve been there, I certainly have!

There are so many daily distractions, that we don’t find the time to do the things we know we need to do.

In this article by a fellow EOS implementer, Dale asks, “If this is such a universal disease that can be contracted by starting a business, why hasn’t anyone developed a cure?”

And he discusses how it’s perhaps because the root cause is hard to discover and needs thoughtful diagnosis.

First, we should ask “how much of the problem is because of the wheel, and how much is because of the hamster?”

Do you have a wheel problem or a hamster problem?

Something good to come out of the lockdowns!

Ever since Mum got cancer, and the doctors told us of some of the dangerous things in cleaning products, I have been a fan of all natural cleaners. But the reality is that some don’t actually work all that well.

And you still have to buy bottles or refills every time, so they’re not that great for the environment either.

So I was thrilled to come across Dazz cleaning products. You buy glass bottles from them & then you just add a tablet & some warm water & le voila, natural cleaning products!

Just to be clear, I don’t actually clean my own home, I have a cleaner for that but I do like them to use natural products.

The best thing about this product is that a couple of brothers in Mount Maunganui had the idea in lockdown to bring this technology from the US to NZ & they had the glass bottles created locally. You can read more here…

And in researching Dazz, I also came across this local company –



An oldie but a goodie – Grammarly is an online app that helps you write mistake-free in Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and any other app you use. Even in text messages!

It reviews spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, engagement, and delivery mistakes. It uses AI to identify and search for an appropriate replacement for the mistake it locates.

It’s more than just a spell checker & it often makes great suggestions about how you can improve your writing style.

I use it in Microsoft Word as well as having it installed in my OS on my Mac.

It’s particularly good if English isn’t your first language or if your tying is terrible like me!


Given I have just celebrated one year of my 3rd marriage & am happily enjoying this & my new business, I liked this quote….

“It’s never too late to start over, never too late to be happy!” –
