Top up!

As we tackle the last few weeks of this year let's remember to give it our best shot. I know that this time of the year brings with it exhaustion, lethargy, lack of interest and a little less drive than usual.


Here are a few survival tips for the last few laps:

1. Take care of yourself first. If you are responsible for family, colleagues or friends in anyway remember you can only take care of them if you are happy, healthy and strong.

2. Can the clutter! Mental clutter, physical clutter (like your surroundings), emotional clutter and even social clutter. A cleared out physical, emotional and psychological space always allows us to perform better.

3. Walk, run, jump, swim, gym... Whatever tickles your fancy, you have to do some form of exercise.

4. Top up! Top up with feel good things... You know what usually puts a spring in your step. This could be a healthy, active lifestyle. It could be assisting in areas or charities where needed. It could be quality time with your family, pets, loved ones.

5. Be expectant. You will be surprised at what can present itself in the form of good news this time of the year.

6. And last but not least... work on a new project for next year. Put things in place. Plan. Write about it. Make sure you are steps ahead when 2015 arrives.


Here's to the next few weeks. May we be blessed with great surprises and let's cross the hurdles with ease!


Have an awesome week!

Testimonial for BizXnet from Christina Watt

Dear Ilze,

I attended the Social Media Training Course in Oudtshoorn last week (24 and 25 June) and just want to say thank you for facilitating this fantastic opportunity.

Until last week I was one of those people who did not use Social Media at all - in fact, I've never even seen a Tweet in real life and wasn't too sure about how to get onto my own FaceBook page. You should see me now, I am completely hooked on this fun and effective way of marketing my business. Next on the list is starting a blog - I would not have imagined this to be a real possibility only a very short while ago!

Tamzin Martin and her team did an amazing job of teaching a roomful of people, many of us complete strangers to the world of Social Media, how to start using this powerful tool to promote our businesses. I especially value the combination of technical knowledge and support we received, together with some very sound marketing advice. There is little point in knowing how to set up your Twitter account and send out fb updates but with no real marketing strategy to back it up - and I think this is where the BizXnet course really shows its strength. Tamzin's enthusiasm for her subject also stands out - the way she presented her course definitely smoothed the somewhat daunting technical journey many of us had to embark upon.

It is so easy to just sit back and complain about every little thing that is wrong with a country, and about how the powers that be never "do anything," but in this instance I really want to thank and congratulate Western Cape Government for a brilliant initiative. I hope there will be many more opportunities in the future and that we will be able to welcome Tamzin and her team back to the Klein Karoo before too long!

Best regards,

Christina Watt

Mini Silly Season

I thought of a few titles for this message: 'While the City Sleeps', 'The Silly Season Returns' and 'The Slumber City'. I don't like the fact that Cape Town is recognised and labelled by ourselves and others as the City who prides itself more on the holidays than on work. It is a general trend for business to slow down radically, for some it comes to a grinding halt over December and January and even during April in Cape Town.
Every trend presents an opportunity. Have you thought about your competitive advantage in business over these seasons? Have you considered a strategy that would capture your audience's attention over these periods? Or will you join the masses with voicemail and out of office replies leaving that special potential client only to use the services of the very few who do actually deliver 24/7/365. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying you shouldn't take leave for your well deserved breaks. I am suggesting you have contingency plans in place, I am suggesting a carefully planned strategy that still makes a client feel that you have his/her best interests at heart.
For those of you who have booked your leave during April, I wish you a safe, pleasant and well rested holiday. You deserve this time with your family and friends.
To the worker bees, you are not alone. Many people will be working during April, keeping the wheels turning.
To the rest of South Africa and the world, Cape Town is not on complete shutdown. :)
Be safe, happy holidays!
