Is This The Great Cyclical Cleansing?

Publish on
Source: news.com.au photo: Cathryn Tremain Well, haven't the world markets been brave?  Just after we experienced the fourth largest crash in history, the markets rallied to give us back a little of our declining wealth.  I could almost hear a collective sigh of relief throughout Australia as the market made modest gains. As the whole debacle carried on around us I was scrounging around trying to find some cash to buy up big.  I was involved in some intense discussions with some of my financial guru friends.  Indeed my colleagues from ABC Business Coaching weighed in with their learned opinions.  Mike Norton advised that the…

What Next for the Australian Share Market

Publish on
Source: news.com.au I was driving to work this morning listening to the esteemed ABC local radio.  Just before I turned into my office they were discussing the stock market.  Now normally I don't have too much to consider when this topic comes up.  My family has invested wisely; we expect to see a downturn one year in every seven and mostly we we are conservative investors and are not willing to risk our hard-earned money.  In fact, the investments we have will probably be passed on to our children and their children... It's nice to have security. As the share market boffins were in conversation,…

Up Close & Personal

Publish on
Source: The Australian Recently I was having lunch with some colleagues of mine.  Over a Yarra Valley Rose we were discussing the strengths of each other...along with our weaknesses.  At ABC Business Coaching we try to review what we are doing as much as possible.  Often it is difficult for us all to be in the same room at the same time so it was during lunch that we had the chance to re-engage with our philosophies and future strategies.   I was reminded that when I joined ABC Business Coaching three years ago I was a "mean" networker.  Hey, networking creates business doesn't it?…

Make The Most of Mentoring!

Publish on
Source: The Age. Jane E Fraser WOW, Great article.  You know why?  Because it gives a strong and relevant argument for business coaching/ consulting/ mentoring.   In my experience business owners do not go about looking for coaching and mentoring.  Generally speaking coaches have to knock down doors, ask for referrals and nurture prospects in order to work with a business owner.  Articles like this are written by independent observers and ultimately support what we do.  Therefore I include it here for any business owner considering seeking advice.   Enjoy!   Troy Deag   Make the most of Mentoring

Beware the Life Coach Who Offers to Fulfill Your Dreams

Greetings,   I came across this article and thought it appropriate news for anyone looking for a Life or Business Coach.  My reasons for including this article vary.  I am an accredited Life Coach, sanctioned by the global governing body, the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

Anyway, this article is a good read.  Credit where credit is due, the author of the article is Jennifer Shelby Long.  Enjoy Beware the Life Coach Who Offers to…

News Corp enters Yahoo fray

Publish on
Source: Wall Street Journal If you have a look at our recent posting on the ABC Business Coaching Blog you will see some comments made about the size and reach of MySpace.  Is it any wonder that Microsoft wants to own it.  Sure we may have supposedly moved on to more sophisticated social networking but the mere fact that MySpace is the figurative size of a large country is grounds to throw rather large wads of money at it.  And now...an now...we have Rup and the News Corp monolith running after Yahoo and it subsidiaries. Oh, the humanity!  Read on News Corp enters Yahoo fray

Franchisors vs. Franchisees – Pistols at Dawn!

Publish on
Source: www.theage.com.au   OUCH! Calling all disgruntled franchisees.  All the poor and unfortunate franchisees that believe they are not getting what they paid for when they signed "their life away".  You finally are being heard.  Check out this article in todays Age newspaper. Franchisees call for code change.     At ABC Business Coaching we are franchisees and franchisors.  If you want to compare the ABC franchise model with the "typical cookie cutter" franchise you would find them poles apart.  We simply do not run our franchises like others.  One fundamental difference is that we, as business owners (franchisees), support each other as a team. …
