I was asked to define success…This is what I came up with. How do you define success?

    There are many things that make a successful business, and they don’t differ that much to those which make a successful life. Businesses are just made up of a bunch of people, all come together for a shared purpose, to make a difference to the world. In business, it is not about what you know, or even who you know, success comes from who you are. The underlying connectedness that is created between people when they have a shared vision and shared values means that success comes from the harmony that is created. I measure success by how much fun can be had in a day, how many times I laughed out loud, and how many times a hug was shared.

  1. What a beautiful way to look at business life… an inspirational comment and one that has been printed and now sits on our office wall. I even went and hugged everyone near me, which of course then sparked outrages laughter amongst the team. BRILLIANT!

  • This is really living in the world of your customer #virtualexperience #granddesign #vr 🎈
  • Great time for gardening! 😄
  • Being in retail for close to two decades has it's highs and lows. 
There is always the threat of competition (Is Amazon going to impact our business when it opens in Australia? Who knows...). The only constant in any retail business is change. 
I find this particularly scary — and nerve wracking. 
I wish I had a crystal ball. 
Trying to pick customer trends continues to be challenging. 
We have engaged the best of the best AI tool to assist in finding customers and helping them. 
But fear is a real emotion felt by many business owners at this time of year. 
Can I trust? I ask myself relentlessly... With 10 weeks to Christmas I feel I must do more to help predict... If I hear ‘consumer confidence is low’ one more time I will want to scream.

Today I must test it. 
I think if I give potential customers a rich offer — with no hidden strings (link in bio), I will see if we can pull some demand forward to let us predict the Christmas capacity we may need. 🎈🎈
