Being friends with other bloggers is totally awesome. I was reminded of this just yesterday when I had a lunch date with the gorgeous Emily of
Fashion Foie Gras, who I met at the Cosmopolitan Superbloggers Masterclass. It’s the same as when I hang out with Gala and Shauna (19 sleeps and counting!) because we don’t have to worry about feeling weird wanting to photograph our outfits or document our hang-out, talking through the benefits of twitter vs facebook or discussing the latest internet drama. To us this is all totally normal behaviour!
Being a blogger can be quite an isolating career path if you let it. If you work for yourself (especially if you’re at home on your own) I can’t encourage you enough to get yourself out there, make friends with your peers and all be weird together.
fabulous weekend guys.

♥ If you one read (and watch) one this thing week let it be Marie Forleo interviewing Sally Hogshead about how to be fascinating. I had so many lightbulb moments watching it!

more of who you are ” Sally Hogshead

Business Bites: Working Like a Machine…
July 5, 2013
My feet have not touched the ground since I got home on Wednesday night... I literally feel like an old machine cranking back up to full speed... I'll get there but it might take me a few days! I'm not going to lie though, I'm feeling quite overwhelmed and a little stressed out about everything I have on right now, but it's all good, I'm just taking each day hour at a time! Sheesh maybe I need to write a blog post titled 'How to get shit done in no time at all...'

November 22, 2013
Late one night this week, as I was battling the jet lag and working on blog posts way past 3am, I was simultaneously having an email conversation with Paul Jarvis: web designer, writer and all round awesome dude, If you haven't obsessed over Paul's work yet by the way, where have you been?

So usually I open these Business Bites posts with some kind of work-related lesson that I've uncovered over the past seven days... but when you're having so much fun exploring the Queensland coast there's no time for nonsense like that!

Business Bites: Giving Up Guilt
October 11, 2013
It's the same old song and dance. I got to Australia for our final leg of The Blogcademy 2013 tour in a little under two weeks (cue major freak out!) and so I'm spending most of my waking hours desperately trying to get as much blog content written and scheduled for while I'm away. This is no mean feat when you have at least two blog posts per day for three and a half weeks to do (not to mention the blog posts before I go as well!) ARGH.

August 2, 2013
Considering I don't have a sweet tooth at all, I sure do pin a lot of pretty sweet treats... hum, I wonder what that says about my psyche? I hope you've all had a brilliant and productive week. I'm really looking forward to this weekend because I'm going out - not once but twice! Sheesh, what a party animal. Now excuse me I better go and grab a quick disco nap before the chaos commences!
Business Bites: Gratitude, Email & Education

I wanted to introduce a links post in the same vein as Thursday Treats the Green Room, and so after umming & ahhing over the perfect name, I thought to hell with it, I'll just keep it simple, cheesy and memorable. So behold Business Bites!
