Slowing Down in Quarantine - 021

5/4/2020
The universe is always guiding you. This week it taught me a valuable lesson about slowing down in quarantine. Ironically my meditation coach Tom Cronin told me a few weeks ago that COVID-19 was the universe telling us to slow down and focus on the important things in life. I thought that I was but turns out that I wasn’t. I thought I was being smart, and getting ahead of the curve during isolation whilst most people were kicking back and watching Netflix. What I completely disregarded was...

On Sunday 8th March 2020 we celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD).

Marketing for Startups with Best Selling Author, Jill Soley - 014

1/26/2020
Having a great product or service in and of itself is not enough to succeed. The reality is you need to have both a great product, and also great marketing.
