    The Five Minute Business Plan

    The Five Minute Business Plan

    Starting out on the right foot is SO important. Especially when it comes to getting your business or side-hustle up and running. And the best way to get on that right foot is to have a bit of a plan. BUT – the other thing we know is that you’re likely time-poor. You might have other commitments right now like balancing a full-time job, looking after kids or being a carer. Which is why, today, we're talking about a five minute business plan...

    Micro-Breaks: Why You Need To Delete Hour Long Meetings

    Micro-Breaks: Why You Need To Delete Hour Long Meetings

    You’ve been sitting at your desk, maybe in an office, maybe in your lounge room, for a few hours. You’ve got a to-do list as long as your right arm. And you can’t concentrate. But you have so MUCH  work to do. What do you do? Do you power through? Knowing that the work that you're doing may not be the best? Or do you stop? And take a microbreak…

    On this episode of 8 Minutes To Change Your (Work) Life, Deb is joined by productivity expert Cyril Peupion, author of Work Smarter, Live Better to unpack why you should be using micro-breaks in your everyday life. And, why you should ban hour-long meetings.

Yet another great pod from Mamamia

Yet another great podcast from you guys! Mamamia really has the skill that identifies the pods that women are juuuustttt about to start finding a need for and getting in and making it so it’s ready to roll.

Only for those wanting to start a business

Was really excited to listen to the first episode after the recommendation from Outloud. Originally pitched as universal for those wanting to hack their work day. Unfortunately every episode since has focused on building your own side hustle. If that’s you then great. However if you’re just looking for helpful hints to motivate your work mojo then probably skip this one.

It started off ok but…

…the second episode was an 8-min advert for Google docs/sheets… Disappointing to do that so soon after launching the podcast and without having built a base of true fans first.
