When this happens, it can be difficult to find a way to get back on track but with reflection and a revised schedule, you can be enjoying an easier, more fulfilling and happier life in no time!

Find your ideal balance.

Despite all that is easily available on the Internet and High Street, the demands of a hectic, modern and competitive lifestyle can leave you feeling unfulfilled and unsuccessful. However, if you truly analysed what you do have, you would probably feel both humbled and happy.

The excesses of modern living and the influence of celebrity lifestyles will, inevitably, impact on the desires of people the world over. Wanting what others have is not a new phenomenon but it can often leave you feeling drained and anxious, which will ultimately impact the relationships with those closest to you.

A very successful way to attract business is via word of mouth. Having customers who recommend you is a wonderful result, especially when it drives new business through the door.

It is possible to harness the power of these recommendations and ensure they have a greater reach by requesting testimonials from satisfied customers. On completion of a successful project, remember to ask your customers for their comments about how much they have enjoyed working with you. Inform them that you wish to use their words within promotional material, such as your company brochure and website. A great...

Living the life you really want is about making choices that are right for you and your family. If you considered all the decisions you made during the last week, it is likely many of them considered the needs of others – the people outside of your immediate family - before your own. If this is the case, you are not necessarily making choices that are congruent with your desired lifestyle.

Living the life you want is not about being selfish. It is about finding a balance; ensuring your own needs are met as a priority, whilst keeping others happy, or at the very least, satisfied with...

As your shop window to the world, your website is one of your most vital business assets. It is the way you can communicate with your prospective customers, informing them about all aspects of your business.

Brochure websites that promote your products and services have their place but they can be static and costly to maintain. Paying a little extra to have a content management system built during the development stage of your website is a worthwhile investment.

Weekends can suddenly disappear into a whirlwind of DIY, catching up with friends and and never-ending piles of ironing. However, the thing most parents want to do at the weekend is spend quality time with their kids. Making time for quality moments with your children can be tricky but not impossible, if you make it a priority.

The easiest and best way to allocate quality time is to mark “FAMILY TIME” on the calendar over three hours on a Saturday or Sunday – and ensure it happens. Do this every weekend because even this short amount of time can help you to re-connect,...

Having indestructible confidence is a tool every mum can learn. Living a life without confidence and with low self-esteem can be incredibly limiting, affecting relationships and potential in all aspects of life.

You can increase your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem by believing in your own abilities, strengths and qualities. Having a personal confidence mantra is something on which you can rely when you need to be reminded of your tremendous capabilities.
