Let's Get Uncomfortable!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Success breeds confidence! This is a little follow on from my previous blog...Fork Ahead! Doing anything that is out of our comfort zone is always uncomfortable, scary and can even lead to panic attacks...well it has for me in the past. This week I had to have a meeting with my current CEO at work about some things that I wanted to get changed regarding my work life balance and management. The things I needed to discuss were very important to me ...

Fork Ahead!

by Avalon Denniss Home Based Business, Relationships, Self Improvement, Writing and Speaking
Throughout our lives we are constantly faced with decisions. Some are every day decisions that have little immediate impact and some are sliding door decisions that will immediately change the course of our journey. The important thing to ask yourself when making any decision, especially the big ones is this. Is this in line with who I am and what I want or am I choosing the safe option because of fear? Up until now fear has held me back in ...

The Employee's Whacked Out Work/Life Balance

by Avalon Denniss Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
People who say that they would rather stay in a safe and secure job rather than take the 'risk' of starting their own business...well I don't know if they have really thought that statement through. Is your job really that safe? I have worked for a company for the past 3.5 years and in that time I have seen at least 25 people get made redundant. I'm talking, they get told at the end of that day and they are asked ...

Learning To Be Extraordinary

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
All my single ladies...you will definitely know what I am talking about here...   Is there anything more infuriating than when people say, 'Oh when you're not looking, the right guy will come along'. Seriously, I used to want to upper-cut punch girls when they said that. Usually they were the smug girls with long term boyfriends, I mean what the hell would they know!   So let's re-phrase that statement to make it less annoying. I think what they were trying to say ...

It's all in the Thought!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Have you ever noticed how life seems to go in cycles? For example sometimes I feel like I have the Midas touch and everything turns to gold and then sometimes I feel like I'm hitting my head against brick walls and nothing seems to work.  Last week I was on very low mode, not sad just low. Low energy, low motivation, low emotions really. Feeling like that is not something I enjoy and at the time it wasn't pleasant. In fact I ...

Have you ever had something go completely not the way you were expecting it? When you think to yourself why the bloody hell did that happen and how can anything good possibly come out of this? Well that happened to me last week. I made a bit of a silly and rash decision and it ended up being a costly one. When I realised I had made a poor and uneducated choice I felt stupid and like I had been kicked ...

STOP, STOP, STOP!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Finance, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement, Communications, Home and Family
Always treat yourself with love and respect and you will attract people into your life who love and respect you. Feeling good and loving yourself exactly how you are right now is so incredibly important. If there are things that you don't like about yourself then it's time to shift your focus to the things you do like about yourself. Just like everyone has something in their life to be grateful for, everyone can find something about themselves they like. Everything in ...

Write It Down For Your RAS!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Self Improvement, Communications
Our brains are processing thousands of thoughts and pieces of information every minute. We are surrounded by advertisements, colourful pictures and sounds, people phoning and texting us, checking our messages, and general life taking place all around in every second. Being focused on what we want and staying on track has become more difficult than ever with all these wonderful distractions. This is why when we feel inspired with an idea or something we want to do it is so ...

What Is True Financial Freedom?

by Avalon Denniss Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Finance, Investing, Self Improvement, Reference and Education
Do you ever lay awake at night worrying about money, how much debt you are in or how you are going to make your wage last for the rest of the month when you've nearly spent all of it half way through? When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I used to work for a bank in a call centre where I took incoming calls for people wanting to apply for personal loans and credit cards. After 3.5 ...

Kick Spark Your Life - Part 1

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
If you want things in your life to change you have to change things in your life. I've heard this so many times but words are only words until you put them into action. You can listen to positive stuff, read motivational books about how to change your life, how to be more successful, how to make money etc, but until you start putting those teachings into action nothing is going to change. Until you take life and your commitment ...

You're the Solution!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Finance, Health and Fitness, Recreation and Sports, Self Improvement, Home and Family
If you look at any kind of business model or any career a person might pursue in their life you will be sure to find people who have failed, people who have had some success and people who have had massive success in that chosen field. So what's the difference? What is the only common denominator that makes the difference in results?  To quote Megan from the epic movie 'Bridesmaids' - '...you're your problem and you're also your solution'. Yes, that's ...

Are you drinking POISON?

by Avalon Denniss Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
Holding resentment in your heart is like drinking poison and expecting your enemy to die. The action of forgiveness may seem like such a simple thing, but sometimes it's so difficult to say, I'm sorry or to make the first move to reconcile an argument. Our pride and need to be right takes over and we end up either not talking to someone we love for days, weeks, months, years and in some very serious case these grudges go on for ...

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

by Avalon Denniss Internet and Businesses Online, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
Despite being happy and positive 95.99% of the time, there are times when I have a little freak out, moments of doubt and sometimes even extreme panic. It usually hits me when I am lying in my bed or on days when I am overly tired I can be more susceptible to having these little bouts. I think to myself 'Oh my god, I had such a good start to my life and so many opportunties, I should be so ...

Cut the CRAP!

by Avalon Denniss Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
It's interesting to note that most people spend a very large portion of their early life (up until mid twenties) educating themselves with school, University or College. We spend thousands to learn an occupation or skill in a chosen field. However, most of us don't even spend half that amount of time or money educating our minds. Some people stop educating themselves in any way the day they leave school.   There are so many successful people throughout history that did ...

That Special SomeONE

by Avalon Denniss Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Self Improvement
People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Sometimes people come into my life and they change me forever. There is always lessons to be learnt, growing as a human being and just becoming more of who I really am. Recently I met someone who treated me so well, was kind to me and made me feel beautiful and appreciated, something I had not experienced feeling in a long time from a man. Even though, due to ...

You ARE capable...

by Avalon Denniss Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Travel and Leisure, Self Improvement
We really don't know what we are capable of sometimes until we are forced to demonstrate how strong we are. I believe that so many people don't push themselves at all because it's easier and more comfortable not to. We tell ourselves that we don't want more and that we are happy with how things are because stepping out and trying to achieve more, be more and do more is scary and unfamiliar, but I am telling you right now ...

Choices you make...

by Avalon Denniss Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Travel and Leisure, Self Improvement
Sometimes it's a hard pill to swallow when we get told that our lives are how they are based on all the choices we have made. If we aren't happy or we're having a difficult time it is not easy to hear that actually we have created it. What is really exciting though is that just as we have created it, we also have the power to create something different by thinking differently and making different choices. I've gotten to the ...

Digital Business Model = Freedom

by Avalon Denniss Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
So what exactly does having a digital business mean? What sort of business model is it?   First of all starting a digital business is no where near as hard as you may think.
