Ever wondered what to do in life?

During my school life, I never really had an idea of what I wanted to do when I left school, some ideas were:

  • become a surf life saver,
  • become a ballerina for the Australian Ballet
  • and more …

After I left school and entered the job force, I read many books to try and find what career I really wanted to be in. None of these books gave me the answer. I wanted to be shown exactly what I should do!

It wasn’t until my late twenties where I started playing around with characters. I had no idea that I was going to turn it into a story but one thing led to another and out popped a story (actually it didn’t just magically happen, it took a good year to finish it and then another 1-2 years to lose it and rewrite it. And by lost I mean, my computer crashed)(important note – always back-up your work!)

Once I had my first child, I had the courage to publish my novel. Not just publish it, go on a 3 month marketing campaign to promote it. I discovered what I wanted to do as a career in life, write.

Ever since that journey into the unknown, a roller-coaster ride of emotions and experiences, I have never wanted anything more than to turn writing into my career.

I realised there is this big wide world that is ready to be explored and experienced and here I was in a small desk space, bored and feeling like this is all the world could offer me but once I started exploring my true passions in life, the world’s view expanded and grew and instead of feeling limitations placed upon me, I felt free.

It’s important to fight for your freedom and your passions. It’s also important to know that what you have right now, may not be what you want and to know that you can go on a journey, like I did to really discover where your true passions lie.

The great part is, instead of fumbling around in the dark, like I did as I self-taught myself everything about writing, I have online courses for you, which provide easy instructions to get you exactly what you want in life, freedom to do what you love.

What not to do when interviewing a potential employee

Want to know how to be an excellent business interviewer? Sign up to my online course now. Read more here.

If you are seeking dynamic employees, you need to step up and be dynamic interviewers.

It is interesting how many managers and senior staff members are asked to be on panels and conduct interviews when they have never received any training on how to interview.

When a person attends an interview, the interviewer is not the only one interviewing the candidate, the candidate is also interviewing the interviewer and the final decision lies with the candidate to accept the job.

Melanie Toye’s online course, ‘How to be an excellent business interviewer’ is here to guide and steer you in the right direction to win the great employees that you want to help propel your business further.

This online course covers:

  • Pre-planning & preparing for interviews.
  • Question Time – All about questions to ask, what not to ask and five specific questions to ask to find out in depth if the person would be a good fit for your company, match the pace, fit the culture and be able to do the work.
  • Interview Time – How to assess candidates during the interview to be able to choose the right one at the end of the interview and tips on how to listen.
  • How to sell your company to get the right candidate.
  • The importance of giving feedback.
  • Referrals
  • When to hire a recruitment consultant

Freelance Writers – It’s time to make money

Over five years I have been a freelance writer, in addition to writing books, creating online magazines, working and looking after a young family. My motivation is what pushed me to work late nights, while the children were sleeping, with the aim to change my life and earn immediate funds to pay for the ever-growing money that our daily lives need and want.

I started the experience blind but went in with guts and found work immediately. Not only that but I was working to earn a weekly income, which provided me with the flexibility to be at home with my children part-time and work the other part-time hours.

I have so much knowledge in the industry, in addition to all the fears felt by a freelancer, such as will their be enough work around when there are heaps of competitors (the answer is yes, but I explore why there is enough).

Plus, I show you how to run and manage your own business. Because once you become a freelancer, not only do you need to learn how to manage your time to meet your client’s deadlines, you also need to know how to think of your freelance writing as a business.

I can assure you, once you take my online course and follow the steps and keep up with the program and then continue to follow it after it ends, over the following twelve months you will see freelance writing opportunities coming your way and did I mention paid opportunities!

If you are serious about getting into writing, then wait no longer. Sign up today so you can start earning an income to give you the freedom to work for yourself and be anywhere in the world.

Funky sunglasses get a look in

I am excited to report to you with possibly the funkiest sunglasses I have ever worn!
If you have ever wanted your fashion to speak for you and show off your personality, then these sunglasses are for you.
I feel quite honoured to have Cheapass Sunglasses contact me to do a post and review on the sunglasses of my choice!
I chose The Zebra. The coolest sunglasses that I knew were me and I just had to have.
I took them for a test drive to a baseball game. I had them on my head, taking piccies and then the sun was quite bright so I put them on. Wow. I was impressed. The light tint shading made the sky look simply beautiful. The lens were clear.
Normally, I find sunglasses hard to fit me, but this pair of sunglasses from www.cheapasssunglasses.com fit perfectly.
I also wore my sunglasses to work and had comments about how cool they were on my arrival. (A lovely start to the day, I must say!)
Here are some specifics:
  • These sunglasses offer 100% UV protection.
  • Plus, they ship Worldwide.
