Welcome to the New Year! Are you ready to get off to a great start?


Happy New Year everyone!  

Great to have a fresh start after a good break. Last year was pretty hectic at times. For eight months we were out of our home with earthquake repairs, literally living out of a suitcase with the family and running both businesses from one shared room and no bathroom.

It taught me the joys of minimalism and de-cluttering! Both at home and in business. And while I’ve been cleaning up my inbox, I’ve been devising ways to make yours more rewarding.

Over the holidays I spent some time reflecting on how I can best help provide you with info that really makes a difference to your business.

So what’s in store? I have a new subscription series I believe can give your business real lift, some free downloadable content and an after shot of my clutter-free new t-shirt drawer!

Please do sign up, it will be worth it.

Warm regards

Let’s get the year off to a great start for your business

The slow down of emails, phone calls and social media over the Christmas break made me realise how many sales emails clutter up my inbox, either because I signed up intentionally or ended up on someone’s database. Most never even get opened.

I dove in and took the time to review my unloved emails and unsubscribe myself from all the content that was no longer serving me. It was quite a pile!

That inspired me to launch a campaign to help you subscribe to something truly relevant.

I’d love to share my years of business insights with you. I have an abundance of award-winning knowledge gleaned from my time working with Xero and cloud based software solutions that’s invaluable for small to medium-sized Kiwi business operators.

The Master Mentor Video subscription series starts in February

My new series will help you with the all-important why and when of small to medium business tactics, with a little bit of how.

I’ve worked with hundreds of small to medium sized businesses and understand the pain points and bottlenecks that can hold you back. I’m looking forward to helping make your business life easier and more productive, with some real knowledge that will give you a real edge.

I have two subscription offers for you, both supplied twice a month.

Try out the Xero mobile app for yourself

I thought you may like to have a free play with the Xero app, it’s pretty amazing.

• It syncs effortlessly with your Xero Organisation and it gives you the freedom to manage your accounts in real time, wherever you are - simply using your iPhone, iPad or Android device.
• It’s even Inland Revenue approved in New Zealand for data storage.

Have a go and see what you think, using our free, six page Xero Mobile App Demonstration Guide.

My top tip for January - Xero Global Search

I absolutely love the Xero Global Search. Time saving + transparency = efficiency.

I can’t believe how much time I used to spend simply finding the information I needed. It distracted my focus from the task I was doing and slowed everything down.

Since I’ve become best friends with the new Global Search tool, I can find key info for clients, suppliers, contacts, jobs, quotes, invoices or leads without even leaving the page I’m on. It’s brilliant. Have a look at how it works below.
