Bonfire of the Vanities

This week, I had the privilege of sitting in on the first webinar in a series our company is involved in with CPA Australia. The series is called On The Pulse hosted by Peter Switzer.

Never miss a sale

I've been doing some research lately into the topic of selling to women. I remember years ago being so annoyed with bank managers, real estate agents, insurance salesmen and car salesmen (and yes, I say men as 99.9 per cent of them were men) to name a few. In our family, I make 50 per […]

Why do women shy from the limelight?

We act as entrepreneurs in our corporate life, running our division, leading people or coming up with innovations to drive up sales. There are so many opportunities to be developed and […]

The convergence of the internet and TV

Welcome to the future and my first contribution to what we believe will be a wonderful website offering self directed investors many opportunities on an ongoing basis.
