Resources

    Meditation
    We live in a world of powerful distractions, hence the need for a means of helping stay focused. I strongly recommend a program called Headspace. It is making a huge difference to my ability to stay focused on tasks and not react overly emotionally to any set backs. It's one that I happily subscribe to.

    Sam Harris on mediation
    Sam Harris has released a new app on how to meditate. I have only just downloaded the app and will use it as well. When my Headspace subscription runs out I will continue with this one.

    Storing and Organising Notes
    I use Evernote (affiliate link)to store and organise all my notes. I use Chrome as my main browser and have the clip to evernote extension allowing me to capture and save any interesting notes. With the iPhone app I am able to photograph and upload notes I've written, images, business cards, receipts and more and upload them to my relevant folders. I highly recommend the Pro-Evernote for a range of uses for business.

    Another great free tool is Pocket— good for storing webpages you want to read later. Use on the iPhone too.

    Wisepreneurs YouTube Channel

    Selected YouTube videos to stimulate your business ideas, creativity and more. From Alain de Botton, Seth Godin, Yuval Noah Harari and more. Well worth a visit.

    ​Podcasts

    I like to listen to podcasts when I go for walks, when I have to do housework or gardening, or travelling. Here are a few I find interesting. I am actually getting sick of listening to business podcasts, preferring to read a book instead.

    See what you think...

    On my iPhone I use the Pocket Casts plugin to organise them

    Websites

    Wix Websites

    I've built more than 50 WordPress sites over the years due to the functionality it offers my clients. However they can be costly as they require annual hosting and regular maintenance, security and backups.
    If you don't have $2 000-$3 000+ to create and host a WordPress website, I strongly recommend that you go with a Wix website. Hosting and all updates are managed as a part of your package from around $16pm.
