Trish Weston left her promising academic career at 20 and ran off and joined a business. She learned many tricks in this magical world - how to juggle (20 things to be done by yesterday); how to make things disappear ("Where is that invoice?"); and most importantly, the art of walking the highwire ("What, no safety net?").
Trish has since left this crazy life and spends her days having wonderful conversations with people about what really important to them - in life and business - and how they can make their own world seem less like a circus.
Trish is an Accredited Life Coach (LCA) and, now, has post graduate qualifications in Psychology.
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself - George Bernard Shaw
We are acutely aware of cash flow, ROI, profit and assets in our solo ventures. But when we look at how our business impacts upon the economy sustainability of our communities, we discover that we're not the only ones who can benefit from our business.
Having good people skills and treating people we work with well is an important aspect of creating a sustainable business. This area, however, doesn’t get a lot of attention despite its presence behind many of our concerns about work and fairness.
The evidence is everywhere. If we don’t treat clients with respect, we lose them. If we take non-renewable resources from the planet, they run out. It’s time to look past our financial bottom-line to see how to create a truly sustainable business.
What seemed like a simple reduction in work hours turned into a valuable experience in understanding my work attitudes and how I work best.
When you work in isolation, running a successful business isn’t just about getting clients but about building relationships in a supportive environment. That's where Business Action Groups (BAG) come in.
