Hubby asked me yesterday "What shall we get up to tomorrow?" and I replied with "a big fat nothing". It's nice to have a quiet day at home, isn't it? So we are enjoying a lazy day today, but I ended up looking through some of our old photos. This one is from a trip to Crystal Castle in NSW a few years ago. Have you been there? While I've travelled around Australia a bit, I have never actually been overseas. That's a fun fact about me, and here are a few more: 👮Brooklyn 99 is my favourite TV show 🐍If you went into my house 4 years ago you would have been surrounded by frogs, snakes, lizards, turtles and a crocodile 🌹I used to have red hair 🎥 I appeared on the TV show, Totally Wild, about 4 times So what are some fun facts about you?

For anyone who has ever run an event, you know it's not just about the actual event day. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀​ ​The amount of planning that happens weeks in advance, including: 1. Securing a venue (@creativecubesco ) 2. Reaching out to guest speakers - and lots of them! Often with limited replies ("ROR" Return on Resilience kicks in here! ) 3. Guest speaker acceptance. This is the BEST feeling! 💃 4. Now... the paperwork for speaker agreements (boring, but essential) 5. More venue 'stuff': styling, seating, food + drink stations, merchandising of brand showcase 6. Brand Collateral: Event program, gift bags, print materials, visual presentation (all looked amazing thanks to our GD visionary!) 7. Catering: So many discussions on this one! Now we have a winning formula & it includes @thegrazingfoxmelbourne at all future events! 😋 8. Brand Showcase: we had 12 brands exhibit. Which means we're now well poised for the pop-up biz! Interested? 😂 ) 9. Networking Drinks: @6ftwine was the perfect fit for our event! And the networking is the most exciting part of the event when you meet someone new, hear their story, and hear the excitement and congratulations from attendees of an event well done! (yaaaas!) 10. Bump out: Never underestimate the bump out (like we did!) Event finished at 5pm and at 9pm we packed the last box into our cars! Yep those racks were tricky to take down!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So a HUGE thank you to our amazing Fashion Equipped team! 👠 @mani_castelluzzo_creative for your attention to detail with the event styling, catering curation and contribution to the mentor panel. 👗 @stylepartners_annadove for ensuring all went to plan pre and during the event, for finding the perfect racks for our brand showcase and co-ordinating with all the brands involved. 📚 @actuallytoby for your seamless execution of all our brand collateral. The venue looked amazing! 📸 @mitch.knight12 for ensuring we captured the day on socials, supporting us throughout the day and not to mention the massive pack down role during bump out! (yep that hurt!) ​ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​#SYFBlive #FashionEquipped

She pep talk’d me hard today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She listened to me talk about my hopes for TDP at [now] x5 years into TDP being TDP, and she then listened to me say that it’s not yet where I want it [I’m a perfectionist, ha!], and then she went and stated the heckin’ OBVIOUS. She said, “Cherie, technically the business is one year old, because you’ve been sole Director for just x12 months and in that time ... you’ve dramatically transformed this company. It’s genuinely like a brand new TDP, compared to TDP of old”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ OMG. So *bluddy* accurate. It really IS like we’ve started again, just x12 months ago ... and I drove home from today’s workshop having read that, positively BEAMING with the bloomin’ accuracy of her statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three cheers for @lecindaward, thanks guys — ultimate pep talk’er. 💜

Let’s rewind back time to when the Entree.Pinays partnered with the creative and talented Filipinas behind @ulamthemovie Aussie premiere + @saloseries Kamayan Feast - A colourful, bountiful and traditional feast to be eaten by hand: generous, communal and uniquely Filipino. Together with @alexandracuerdo and Yana Gilbuena, we were able to create a Ulam + Kamayan experience in Melbourne that validated the worth of what we do individually and collectively. An honour to work together to educate and celebrate Filipino cuisine, culture, and communities with our BARRIO in Melbourne. And we are honoured that as first generation daughters of immigrants, we can acknowledge our parents’ contributions to the country they adopted - both Australia and the U.S., and thank them for giving us the confidence to celebrate our Filipino heritage, culture, and diaspora in such a beautiful way. ”Salamat” and please know that all your support continues to feed our hearts, bellies, and souls. 🎥 @rmr.visuals

Taking time out of your business to relax is so important 🤗 even though I’m technically here to do brows, I scheduled in some time to reflect and realign. Sometimes you need to remove yourself from the day to day routine, but I promise once you do you come back better than ever! This is your hint to schedule that holiday, a weekend away, or that YOU time 😉⠀

Happy Sunday everyone 💗 . How often do you stop yourself taking time to do something you really WANT to do because there is so much other stuff you SHOULD be doing? . My mind constantly battles with this, which is why I struggle to just ‘be’ 🙈 . I told myself I was going to make some cards this weekend but yesterday afternoon I worked. Why? because I thought I should, because it might give me a head start on the week, because for my business to be a success, I should work all hours right? 🙈 . This morning I’m awake before the rest of the house so I laid for a while and thought I could get up and do the ironing. Why? because I should do it, and I should also work a bit more and I should clean the bathroom. Do I WANT to do any of those things? No - but I will, because I’ve told myself I should. I will then get to the end of the day feeling frustrated because I didn’t make any cards! . Then I thought sod it, all this stuff can wait. The world won’t end if I don’t iron or clean the bathroom. I WANT to create, I NEED to create and I’m going to, because I need to give it as much priority as the other stuff because it’s important to me and if the ironing doesn’t get done until tonight, tough! I will add that Rich will offer to do the ironing but I will say no, I will do it, because I have it in my mind that I SHOULD - I’m my own worst enemy 😆 . What do you let SHOULD get in the way of? . . . #chooseyou #dreamersanddoers #busymum #savvybusinessowners #virtualassistant #virtualassistance #bossladymindset #shemeansbusiness #businesssupport #femalebusinessowner #businesschicks #solopreneurs #lovemybiz #growyourbiz #sayyestosuccess #worklifebalanced #creativebusinessowner #girlbosslife #mumsinbusiness #mamatribe #mumsinbusiness #uksmallbusiness #designalifeyoulove #creativebiz #theimperfectboss #ownyourlife #9tothrive #herbusiness

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy chocolate, and that’s kinda the same thing. In the long history of the workplace, there was only one thing that ever really made the afternoons go faster and the day seems a little easier, and that’s chocolate. A shame that the Europeans had to wait until late into the 17th Century to discover it, they suffered all that time without chocolate to ease the day. Thankfully that’s no longer a concern. Office Chocolate Day is your opportunity to grab a bar of chocolate, or an entire tray, and enjoy it while you’re at the office! #chocolateday #productivity #productivelife #planningadict #businessprocess #virtualassist #virtualassistantservices #virtualoffice #secretarialservices #womenempowerment #womeninbusiness #businesschicks #businessowner #smallbiz #startup #mompreneur #business #businessgrowth #businessstrategy #businesssupport #savybusinessowner #virtualpa #entrepreneur #entrepreneurgoals #adminassistant #london #instabusiness #instasucess #instawork #instaentrepreneur

Allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to cry is single-handedly the most incredible thing you can do for your healing. When we cry, trapped emotions loosen like snowflakes from our eyes, thawing the winter heart to make room for a fertile spring. One must face her pain, whisper a soft, windblown remedy, and one must let that misery go. - Avery Rouda

⁣On Wednesday afternoon, we talked about the amazing powers smiling can have...⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So we just couldn't finish off the week without sharing this picture of Chris! Our resident Google Ads aficionado and provider of juicy lemons looks simply overjoyed in this shot.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When we think of Supple, this is the sort of image we are looking to conjure - positive, passionate, and simply full of joy! It's easy to get caught up in performance and results, but the most important metric in a workplace is how your people are feeling.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If you can spread genuine happiness, then all the other stuff will follow. Because people who love their jobs are usually great at them too!⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Creating a happy workplace is one job that never ends, and we will keep striving to make our offices as joyful as they can be.⠀⠀ ⠀ And if you're looking to smile this Sunday, check out that Wednesday afternoon post on the power of a smile. The facts you find there are sure to make you grin.

When we‘re working with digital influencers for clients, we always look for efficiencies. That is, how can the content be repurposed to work more ways for YOU. This influencer campaign is a great example of the longtail effect that can be achieved with good content 👆. Five years ago BossHan went to @tropicalnorthqueensland with @canonaustralia and the content is still being re-used and rolled out by the client today! Today we spotted 👀 this billboard @cairnsairport using the very same content from the campaign!

By the time you reach burn-out point you have been chronically stressed for a long period of time, you are exhausted and irritable, you’ve lost your passion, you feel detached and helpless, and you’re suffering from a range of physical illnesses as a result of a lowered immunity. Feeling trapped and defeated it can be really challenging to see what changes you need to make that can improve your situation. You’ve probably tried a whole bunch of different strategies to date that have not made a difference. If you are feeling like this right now, you need to STOP. You need to somehow (and I know it might not seem possible because I’ve been there, but it is) find a way to give yourself a break. And what I mean by a break is some time off and some time away from the demands of your every day life. You’ve gone beyond incorporating some self-care activities on top of your schedule and hoping they will help. You need to give your body the rest that it desperately requires to recharge the batteries that you have depleted and the only way to do this is to distance yourself from or cut out a large chunk of these demands for a period of time. The length of rest will differ for people but you need to urgently prioritise it for yourself. Start with a weekend away on your own or a week off work and see how you feel after. For many they require much longer than this, it’s not uncommon to hear about people that take 6-12 months to recover from their burn-out. For me, I needed to cut work out altogether. Failing to take a break will put your body in a position where it will take over and force this break upon you. Burn-out and chronic stress can have serious health consequences - stress induced heart attacks, pneumonia, appendicitis, damage to your brain causing a whole range of problems, panic attacks so bad that you can’t leave the house, and exhaustion so severe that you can’t get out of bed for months just to name a few. This is serious guys and demands urgent attention. Beyond rest, recovery from burn-out requires a recalibration. This recalibration is multi-faceted including physical, mental, behavioural and spiritual factors, a post for another day.
