    Do you find that you tense up and busy yourself with odds and bobs around the office when you hear that you need to begin cold calling? Are you putting silly notions in your own head that you will not get the deal and therefore you are refraining from cold calling? Let's all take a step back and just breathe! I find that the best way to overcome this fear or negative attitude towards cold calling is to relax and put yourself in a positive space, and most importantly, try to get…

    Change must happen but who must change?

    Posted by Des Squire on July 18, 2014 at 10:32 6 Comments

    Oil your personal growth

     Lena-Mari Josling

    To see my four-month-old son in his exploration phase got me thinking about why our hunger for exploration fades. Are we just too used to the world or do we give up and stay loyal to our comfort zones? Maybe we're just caught up in the 'must do's' of life and neglect the 'want to's'.
