31 AugWhy I’m more likely to have impostor syndrome

Many people nowadays feel that they don’t belong to the group or circle they are in. They are afraid that their friends and colleagues are going to discover that they are fraud; inferior, less talented and they don’t actually deserve their careers and accomplishments.

Impostor Syndrome

Do these feelings sound familiar to you? If so, you’re one of those people who suffer from “impostor syndrome” or the feeling you’re an inadequate and incompetent failure, despite evidence that indicates you’re skilled and quite successful. There are some great achievers here in Perth and around the world feel deep down that their accomplishments are just the result of serendipitous luck.

According to Valerie Young, an expert on Impostor Syndrome and of a book on the subject, The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, there are patterns in people who experience impostor feelings:

The first category is the “Perfectionist” or those who set extremely high expectations for themselves, and even if they meet 99% of their goals, they’re going to feel like failures.  When they fail to reach a goal, they experience major self-doubt and worry about measuring up.

The next category is the “Experts” or the people who feel the need to know every piece of information before they start a project and constantly look for new certifications or trainings to improve their skills.

Another category is the “Natural Genius” or those set their internal bar impossibly high, just like perfectionists. But natural genius types don’t just judge themselves based on almost impossible expectations, they also judge themselves based on getting things right on the first try.

Finally, there is the “Soloist” or the people who feel they have to accomplish tasks on their own, and if they need to ask for help, they lose their confidence thinking that means they are a failure or a fraud.

21 JulManaging Money

Australian Dollar


What makes someone profitable when they start their own small business? Every new small business owner wants the answer to this question. The truth is, if you want to make a lot of money with your small business in the long term, you should look for ways in which can manage your cash flow.

Controlling money is an important key towards your business’ success. As a new entrepreneur, you should have what it takes to money management. If not, it’s either time to improve your skills or find someone who can manage it for you. Without tight control over the finances of a budding home based business, there is no telling what the future may or may not hold.

When talking about managing money, it does not mean that you can’t spend money. In fact that is a huge mistake that people make. The trick is to learn how to spend money the right way (which brings in more profits) instead of the wrong way (which results in more debts).

In your small business, you should have a budget and it should be done carefully. You should know how to analyse numbers and keep up on determining where your money is going, where areas you can cut cost how you can save.

Saving cash for your business is a great way to find true success because you will have those funds to use time and time again when you do need them. For more on money management, check this out: https://www.business.qld.gov.au/running-business/finances-cash-flow/managing-money

09 May8 things that set truly confident people apart


Many new entrepreneurs in the City of Perth these days often feel that they just don’t have the bold confidence necessary to succeed in business. Perhaps, these entrepreneurs need a boost in their business confidence. Or maybe, you just need confidence to take the first step because you are just getting started.

Confidence means a lot in business. One of the most important confidence-builders is to know that you know what you are doing! You probably have so many great business ideas but you don’t have the know-how to make it happen. You need to teach yourself about how to market your product or service such as knowing your competition, how you can reach your demographic and what kinds of advertising should you do. If you do not have knowledge about business, you should definitely hire a business coach or attend business workshops to educate yourself.

Once you know what to do, the next step is being focused. You really can’t boldly march forward if you don’t know what direction you’re going in. Take some time to focus on your business. Evaluate your business and determine your goals.

Finally, you need to believe on yourself. Use your positive thinking just like how great entrepreneurs believed in them when they were new just like you.

In an organisation, the employees are the most valuable assets. Keeping them engaged and motivated is the key to a successful, highly productive workforce. Some managers are able to boost their employees’ productivity level by providing them with some incentives, but there are others who need an occasional jump-start.

23 AugThe Best Time to Launch a Startup Is Also the Worst Time

If you want to achieve money, freedom, and fulfilment all at the same time, then it is about time that you start your own business. Starting your own business is an opportunity available to millions in Australia, but with every opportunity there come liabilities. As smart business people, we are compelled to consider the advantages… and disadvantages, of a start up business.

Understanding the benefits and disadvantages of running your own business is important before you decide to start. To begin with, let us first know the pros:

Freedom is the number one benefit of entrepreneurship. Since the presence of freedom allows for all the other benefits we find in life, it stands to reason freedom would have to be at the top of the list of pros for starting your own business.

The second benefit is money. Entrepreneurship can give you unlimited opportunities to earn money. You may be able to secure a decent salary at a good company, but the money you can make in private enterprise dwarfs it many times over.

Meanwhile, entrepreneurship also has disadvantages. The advantages of small business are many, but security is not one of them. Why? The lack of security is a cost you pay to gain a benefit: freedom.

Secondly, the stress of starting your own business and running it successfully can be hellish. When you are boss, you pay the bills, you pay the suppliers, you pay the fees, and you have to make sure YOU get paid so you can pay everyone else. It isn’t easy.

Now that you learn the pros and cons of starting a business, your next job is to get prepared and know when the perfect timing to begin is.

04 Feb10 reasons your best employees are quitting

Perth BusinessAccording to some research conducted, small businesses could grow if they are more effective in managing their employees. In fact, many business experts in Western Australia and all over the world agree completely. That is one of the reasons many have been so actively supportive of strong employee management programs for small businesses.

Many business owners start out as a single person business entity and many never want to change. They do not want to bother and want to grow to the point where they need their employees. But for those who want to grow, or have no other option but to grow, you will definitely need a strong employee management.

Small businesses especially must be more effective, because the affect a single person has on a small company is greater than the affect a single person may have on a larger company. Every person on the team should have the skills needed to play his or her role effectively. For this reason, you need to make sure that all your employees are good at what they do.

However, one of the biggest problems small business owners face is losing their best employees. It’s either they quit and start their own business or look for a bigger company that can give bigger benefits.
