This week has been a very family oriented one for me… Friday night was a small engagement party in Hobart with my family-which was LOADS of fun. I’m really close to my family here, and love catching up with all my aunts, uncles and cousins!
Then on Sunday it was my Mum’s 60th birthday. We surprised her with a delightful cruise down the Derwent River to a wonderful venue called Peppermint Bay. As my sisters Kath, Emma and I worked on the speech, we discovered she had packed over 7,200 lunchboxes in her time… WHOA!
The rest of the week was looking at wedding venues for our own Big Day in January. Oh my Lord. I’m in the events industry, but I’m telling you… finding a wedding venue is no mean feat. I’ll let you know how we progress.
It honestly rocks to be able to take some time to spend with family like this though. Make it a mission to create a SUPERLATIVE LIFESTYLE BUSINESS! You’ll never regret it!
This week has all been about the wonderful MDM and the Business Transformation Week on the Gold Coast. I have to tell you, the breakthroughs and growth we saw over the 7 days was INCREDIBLE!
We took them out on the high ropes course and it was absolutely pouring with rain. If you haven’t seen it already check out last week’s BTS tip! You know what though? They all kept their spirits high and completed a really challenging course in the torrential flood-causing rain. There were literally dozens of roadblocks and floods around the Gold Coast area, yet these guys still rose to the challenge.
Anyone can do a ropes course in the fine weather (phobias permitting!) but in the flood-causing rain? I guess it was like making money in July 2008 vs post-GFC. The ecnomic climate has changed but it doesnt mean we can’t succeed in business…it just means that we need to be a little more cautious.
Anyhow – they were such an amazing bunch. Check out some of these photos from the ropes course and from our super fun awards nights. There’s lots of photos on facebook for you.
It’s great to be back from my hols! Thanks so much for my wonderful team for keeping things going whilst we were away. I have to confess – I didn’t even have to check the occasional email! Yay.
This was the longest holiday we’ve had since we started the business so it was just lovely to chill out and enjoy ourselves. The highlight was sailing in the Aegean and also sea kayaking through the caves off the coast off Phuket. AMAZING!
Lauren and Michael’s wedding was great. See all the gorgeous piccies. There’s more on my Facebook page if you’re a photograph fan.
We’re back in Australia with the MDM this week. It’s our Business Transformation Week over on the Gold Coast. They might have got drenched on the high ropes course today but we’re having tonnes of fun.
It’s great to be back!
