Market Your Business On A ShoeString!

Mark Twain once said, “Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.”

While most advertising can be expensive, the best advertising and business promotions can be accomplished via low cost methods. In fact did you know that some of the best and most effective forms are actually FREE?

In a tight economy many small businesses cut their marketing budgets as the first expense to reduce, because of cash flow concerns. However when times are tough it’s even more important to keep your business brand front and centre. No matter which marketing methods (and we recommend you use a variety) you choose as a business owner, the key is to keep your promotional efforts going, and to never depend on one form of marketing if you want long term success.

A Retirement Option For Baby Boomers

Australia is being totally transformed by population ageing, along with social, economic, and policy change, and so having a home based business in one’s retirement is becoming a more and more attractive option.

We are at a critical demographic turning point because the baby boom cohort – the 5.5 million people born between 1946 and 1965 – has begun to turn 65 years of age.

With the average 50 year-old Australian estimated to have currently less than $50,000 in retirement savings, there is an obvious need to find alternative ways to either save more or generate supplemental income starting now, and continuing throughout retirement.

The Savvy Team have just the best opportunity to help you make money from wherever you are, while helping you join them in the wellness industry and thus stay young and healthy, and provide a simple cost-free system to help you do it.  (more…)

9 Things that can Mess Up Your Hormones

9 Things That Mess Up Your Hormones!

Hormonal imbalance was once considered to be only a problem associated with menopausal women. However we are now seeing alarming signs of hormonal dysfunction caused by oestrogen dominance, even in children by the age of puberty.

In the news and media nowadays – we are finally seeing more and more evidence presented on the damaging effect of chemical on the hormonal systems of the body. Take for instance the recent Washington University study finding that early menopause is linked with everyday chemical exposure. Yes, hormonal disruption casued by chemicals – something we’ve been sharing about for years in the Savvy Team!

Add this evidence to that presented definitively by the World Health Organisation in the 2012 Report . . . and it’s becoming an important choice to shop for safer alternatives.

It is crucial to remember that when oestrogen is unopposed by adequate levels of progesterone, a hormone imbalance occurs causing many undesirable symptoms. (more…)

Boron: A Trace Element Essential For Good Health

After doing one of my daughters hair analysis recently, I discovered that she was low in Boron. Investigating this element, I discovered some important facts about this essential nutrient that showed why a series of apparently unrelated health issues had arisen. Oh the wonders of our physical body!

A little reading and research showed just how amazing this mineral really is for the human body. Boron is a trace mineral, and like all trace elements is essential to human health. Again like all other minerals, Boron must be obtained from one’s diet or from supplementation. And like the other trace elements, we only require it in small – trace amounts.

While I rarely come across a multi vitamin / mineral capsule that contains Boron, I am thrilled to say that the one the Savvy Team recommend does, either via Dunaliella salina or Fucus vesiculosus. So I wondered why she was having challenges with signs of deficiency, until I discovered just how important it is in keeping fungi such as candida at bay. As my daughter had been on long-term antibiotics for ongoing dental problems, I began to connect the dots. (more…)

12 Ways To Win Through Personal Responsibility

What is personal responsibility?

It is taking conscious control of your responses to the events and circumstances in your life. You are responsible for yourself whether you like it or not. What you do with your life and what you have done already is up to you. “Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn once again to exercise his will – his personal responsibility.” Albert Einstein

The ancient Romans understood the concept of personal responsibility. It’s said that after a Roman arch was completed, the engineer who built it had to stand underneath it when the scaffolding was removed.

Like discipline, responsibility is one of those words you have probably heard so many times from authority figures that you’ve developed a bit of an allergy to it. Still, it’s one of the most important things to grow and to feel good about your life. Without it you will never develop the attributes of a leader. (more…)

Achieving Excellence

The question of what it takes to excel — to reach genius-level acumen at any chosen endeavour — has occupied psychologists for decades and philosophers for centuries. Groundbreaking research has pointed to “grit” as a better predictor of success than ‘IQ’, while leaders have admonished their people against the dangers of slipping into ‘autopilot’ in the quest for skill improvement.  Conscious competence means just that, if you want to improve results.

A new paper, by Brooke Macnamara, David Hambrick, and Frederick Oswald, offers a meta-analysis of existing literature on performance and practice, looking at 88 papers covering all the major realms where the practice-performance link has been studied. It finds that many have greatly overstated the importance of practice.

Practice, they found, on average explains just 12 percent of skill mastery and subsequent success. Instead, the factor identified as the main predictor of success is deliberate practice. Persistent training to which you give your full concentration rather than just your time, and usually and at best guided by a skilled expert, coach, or mentor. It’s a qualitative difference in how you pay attention, not a quantitative measure of clocking in the hours that creates mastery.

Mastery of any task has another component that exponentially increases results. (more…)

Book Your Complexion Rejuvenation Experience NOW!

Problem skin comes in the form of flaky patches, cracked skin, and in more severe cases, itchy red patches and they are sometimes very painful and can cause emotional loss of self-esteem. The ability of your skin to retain moisture, it’s elasticity, your skin tone and smoothness all have specific needs that need to be addressed. Our treatments give visible results often within days, and these benefits continue to increase over a period of up to 4 weeks (clinically tested).

The causes of most problem skin are totally within our control – some are from lack of nutrients, water or sleep, some from too much exposure to chemicals or the UV rays from the  sun, or even from staying too long in an air conditioned room. However, with some minimal extra effort we can alleviate many of the symptoms and can often even prevent them.

9 Tips For Successful Team Players

Are there benefits from working within a team?

Wikipedia states that a 2003 survey (HOW-FAR) revealed that Americans think that being a team player was the most important factor in getting ahead in the workplace, and in the community. In brief, a team of people can achieve far more than the sum of the total of the individuals skills alone.

The primary benefit of teamwork is that it allows any group of people to achieve something that an individual working alone cannot. The total value created by teamwork depends on the overall effectiveness of the team effort. Working in a team can be rewarding, but at times it can be difficult and downright frustrating. If there are poor communicators on your team, you may often feel left in the dark, confused or misunderstood.

If the leader is not clear in their direction, is not consistently showing the way, is not modelling what’s required, and is not educating, clarifying, reminding, supporting and encouraging those who are not participating fully, then the whole project fails. People want to be part of a team, but their self-esteem often gets in the way of them playing full out.  (more…)

The ‘LIST’

To search for things beyond our grasp is fantasy,

When that which lies within our reach we see

Has not yet been completed, yet holds the key,

To that which through right action ours will be.

The simplest things in life will make us free.

Prof. Dr. Sir John Whitman Ray, from ‘Logic In Sequence. Book 1: Laws of Perfection.’

There is a great need for people to bring order into their lives, at home, at work, in their relationships and their thinking. Yet it seems such an uncertain world out there. Chaos reigns supreme, so they say.

Do you ever feel, “It all looks so bleak. Why should I even bother to try to move forward in life or my career? Why should I try to improve my circumstances when I don’t think it will lead to anywhere? Why should I try anything in this crazy, uncertain, unpredictable and difficult environment?” (more…)
