As a web-designer I'm constantly tweaking my website; it's an ever-evolving project. I'll be listening to the latest podcast or nerding out on a blog post on web design trends and feel the sudden urge to jump into Squarespace and start playing around.

There’s two little words I know that many service-based businesses hate to hear and I’m hoping that when you read them in this post you won’t immediately slam your laptop shut!
These two little words can be the making or breaking point for many businesses. They’re the difference between a steady income stream or feeling like it’s a desert between client enquiries.

If you've opened your inbox lately, you've likely seen these four letters popping up a few times.
It's time to get your head out of the sand and climb out of the rock you've been living under for a while and face the facts. GDPR is here and you must do something about it.
Because we know that when new things like data-regulations and subscriber handling come into question this can freak you out, we've put together some of the questions that we're getting asked in the hope that it answers many of yours too!
I strongly believe that no matter how far you come in your business there is a constant up-levelling that occurs. Just when you feel you’ve overcome one mindset block that was holding you back, another one rears it’s ugly head.
I’m not sharing this to make you fearful, but rather to share that no matter where you are on the journey, someone has walked that path before you, and had to deal with the same mindsets, beliefs and myths being thrown at them.
That’s why I want to share with you 3 myths I’ve personally bought into and how you can move past them in order to take your business to the next level.

There's a saying that's going around the internet at the moment 'Hustle with Heart'.
I have a bit of a problem with this mantra though. Yes, I'm a big believer that there should be a whole lot of heart and soul in your business, but I'm also a believer that the whole 'hustle' idea can just add another unnecessary level of stress to your already busy schedule.
