30 seconds to the best memory hack ever!

Memory hacks. We all need them!

I enjoy reading about hacks and new ways of doing things, always checking out if there are easier and better ways of doing things. Let’s face it, I enjoy my work, but I love my free time as well. So, the more efficiently and effectively I work, the more time I have to do other things – like spend time with family and friends.

Small Businesses are Leaders of Innovation and Creativity

What is innovation? What is leadership?

A few words come to mind. Passion. Innovation. Creativity. Belief.

We tend to think of small businesses as having a disadvantage when competing with the bigger companies around the world. I think it’s the other way around…
