Hello from Auckland! Our alarms went off at five o’clock this morning and we were back on the road, heading to New Zealand for our third class on this Antipodean adventure. Although Gala, Shauna and I have been having an absolutely fantastic time down under, it really has been all go go go. We’ve been pretty un-Rock n Roll and spent most of our down time in our PJs, laying about in whatever hotel or apartment we happen to be holed up in.

After teaching this weekend, we hop on yet another plane down to Wellington to visit Gala’s parents for a few days before heading back over to Melbourne for our final workshop of 2013! It really has been such an incredible trip but I sure am missing Gareth and those kitties of mine. But – yay! – only just over a week until I can see all their cute little faces again.

In other news, I’ve been invited to speak at Enterprise Nation‘s Blogging for Small Businesses event in London on December 3rd. I’ll be sharing my blogging journey and letting you in on just how I turned my hobby into a full time business. PLUS it’s completely free to attend. I’d love to meet you there!

So let’s check out some of this week’s most inspiring business links shall we?

“Doing less will help you accomplish more.

We have to start by redefining productivity, because the current definition is clearly broken. When was the last time you finished everything? What was the last time you thought, “I’m so productive that I got it all done.” and didn’t have to wake up and do it all over again?”
