I know what you’re thinking, “Not another New Year resolutions post!” You’re right, they’re everywhere at the moment. We’re three weeks into 2018 and we’re being hit left, right and centre with New Year resolution suggestions for our personal life, work life, family life etc. It’s a little overwhelming.
The thing is - these articles all have a point. The New Year is the perfect time to reassess your business goals and strategies, to reflect on what you learned over the previous year and to implement new ideas that can take your business forward.
Late last week, I came across a post on LinkedIn from a gentleman explaining that whilst attending an event, he was nervous about being asked, “So, where are you based?” because he was unsure of the potential stigma upon announcing that he worked from home, not in an office.
With Work from Home week coming up from the 15th – 21st January, I decided to explore this a little further to identify the benefits of working from home.
Happy New Year!

We’ve all been there - that long, seemingly impenetrable to-do list that just won’t reduce, no matter what you do.
You’ve spent days trying to tackle it, but rather than see the number of items diminish, you seem to simply be adding yet more jobs to an already unmanageable list.
Actually - technology! If you’re battling like this every day at work, there’s a strong chance you’ve developed an unhealthy reliance on tech to get stuff done (and let’s be honest, it isn’t working, is it?). Here’s what you need to do:
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that video is big news in marketing. With recent studies claiming that “online videos will account for more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic by 2020”, smart marketers are turning their attention to video as a way to stand out in all the noise currently doing the rounds on social media.
However, other surveys have also shown that “83 percent of marketers said they’d like to create more video content if they didn’t have restraints such as time and resources”. Video creation is often seen as an expensive and time-consuming process that is out of reach for the majority of time and budget strapped marketers.

It excites me more, too, because if I look just a few short years ahead, I can see several trends and forecasted innovations that I think will help me take my micro business onto even greater heights:
Many of you probably heard about Google’s warning prior to their release of Chrome 62 that all websites should have an SSL certificate to prevent their ‘Not Secure’ warning from being triggered and potentially driving away new traffic.
For those of you who have no clue what SSL is, or whether you need it for your website, keep reading!
The only way to ensure that your company will continue to not only thrive, but grow in the future, is to look after your customer base. Learning how to review customer satisfaction levels is an important aspect of your development programme. It will help management tweak long-term plans and goals, implement strategies to improve individual employee performance and help to increase the effectiveness of marketing strategies and direct customer interaction and policies.
Confession time: I live by my to-do list.
Without it, I’d have to sack myself, because I’d get absolutely nothing done. I’d miss deadlines, prioritise the wrong stuff and never make headway on the biggest tasks.
However, just like anyone who relies on a to-do list to get through the day, I know the perils of falling behind.
Unfortunately, it’s not always that obvious when you’re losing ground on your tasks. Often, the degree to which you’re becoming overwhelmed with work creeps up on you unawares.
Today, you can learn from my mistakes, with these five killer signs that you’re over-stretching that to-do list:
