The Entrepreneurial Bright and Shiny Object Syndrome Exposed

The Entrepreneurial Bright and Shiny Object Syndrome Exposed

What You Need to Know Before You Sign Up for Yet Another Program
There’s an insidious travesty happening in the entrepreneurial world and I’ve stayed silent about it long enough.

 

It’s time to expose what’s really happening to unsuspecting entrepreneurs and business owners when it comes to seeking the perfect answer to their business needs. You probably already know it as chasing after the bright and shiny object syndrome.

It happens when the perceived need to learn more, be more and do more outweighs the need to actually get clients and run a business.

Why The Bright & Shiny Object Syndrome Happens

New entrepreneurs, especially women, often horde a deep-seeded secret that weighs them down and prevents them from growing their business to the heights they are perfectly capable of, but often don’t realize it.

That secret is the debilitating knowing they will be exposed as a fraud.

I know this because I too had this fear years ago.

It kept me playing small.

It stopped me from stepping outside of my comfort zone.

It dictated all of my business decisions from how much to charge to how I should be positioned in my industry to whom my ideal clients were.

The thought of being exposed as a fraud far outweighed any voice of reason that declared otherwise. It was a powerful force that controlled my every move.

But I had no idea this was going on. I wasn’t consciously aware of how much my actions were based upon that one fact: Feeling like I was a fraud.

But was I really a fraud? Hardly.

My educational background and previous business skills and experience put me far above the level of many of my competitors in the web development and digital marketing space. But I still found a way to discount all of that.

It wasn’t enough.

I needed to learn more.

Clearly they know far more than I do – just look at how “successful” they are.

They know the “secret”.

So what did I do about it? I signed up for every program I could in order to find out what that secret was.

I embarked to find that perfect formula to follow. That magic system that would take me from point A to point B easily and effortlessly. That thing that would make me successful.

Once I completed these programs, THEN I’d skyrocket my success!

Not. And it’s probably not going to work for you either.

Yes, you’ll get some new insights out of the training. You’ll learn a few things along the way. But it won’t be enough.

And that’s because it’s not really what you need. Not by a long shot.

More than likely all those programs will just result in you feeling more overwhelmed and confused than ever before. How on earth are you going to find the time to implement all this, let alone understand how to do it all?

There’s only so much time in the day and wouldn’t you prefer to be working on what you’re passionate about instead? The reason why you went into business to begin with? Here’s the deal. What you really need is to start believing in yourself.

I can’t tell you how many struggling entrepreneurs I have worked with over the years. They aren’t able to reach successful heights in their business and the first (and often only) thing they will blame is themselves.

Their inner voice is screaming at them: • You don’t know enough. • You need to learn more. • You are clearly in way over your head – what were you thinking anyway? • You’re better off just quitting before you are exposed as the fraud you really are.

This may sound very familiar to you too.

So what does an aspiring entrepreneur do when they have thoughts like these? They sign up for every course, program, system, webinar, teleseminar, telesummit imaginable.

They become addicted to learning.

In their quest to no longer feel like a fraud, they embark on a mission to learn every single aspect about running a business they can. They feel they MUST learn how to: – Figure out who their ideal client is (even though they’re not sure what to do with that info once they have it) – Build a website themselves (even though technology has never been a friend of theirs) – Design their own logo and marketing materials (even though they have never had any formal training in graphic design) – Set up a sales funnel (even though they’re not really sure what that is) – Write the sales copy on their website and landing pages (Even though writing does not come easy for them) – Do Search Engine Optimization (SEO) on their website (even though they aren’t sure what that means) – Conduct webinars and teleseminars in order to launch their new program (even though they don’t have a program to launch yet) – Get on stage and be a speaker… write a book… participate in JV partnerships… hold workshops…. The list goes on and on!

What results from all of this? Entrepreneurs are spending SO much time and money on learning all of these skillsets that aren’t a part of t

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

For many, a bungee jump is a once-in-a-lifetime, adrenaline-filled activity that you’ll remember forever – and you’ll forever be able to tell people about your jump! There are many ways to skin a cat, and some of these bungee jump techniques will make your jump even more memorable. Whether you’re a seasoned jumper or will only take the plunge once in your life, there is a thrilling technique out there for you.
Feel Like You Can Fly Techniques!

 

The Swallow Dive is one of the most popular jump styles in use today, and for good reason! Especially beloved by adrenaline seekers, you have to take a big running jump off the platform with your arms stretched out as wide as possible (like a swallow). This will let you soar through the sky to the ground below. There will be a huge adrenaline rush as you feel like you’re flying through the air… and as an added bonus, as the cord begins stretching you will be pointing downwards – perfect for a smooth and easy deceleration.

Be aware: if the body harness you’re kitted out with has a front cord attachment, ensure you twist 180 degrees so by the time the cord tightens out you’re facing upwards. Don’t worry, your instructor will know all this! But the more you know before your jump, the more relaxed you’ll be before the big event.

The Bat Drop is a little trickier than the swallow dive, and much more daring! For this jump style you’ll have to be positioned hanging upside down (!!!) on the edge of the platform. Someone else will need to be holding your feet, and once they release you you’ll shoot off like a bat or vampire into the darkness of the night!

The Back Dive is another jump which is considered to be a little more difficult. You’ll really need to put your all into launching off the platform so that when you’re at the end of your fall, your head will be pointing straight down. Just like the swallow dive, be sure to be facing upwards at the end of your jump if you happen to be using a front-connected body harness.

The Elevator is a technique you’ll definitely have seen somewhere before. You simply step off the platform with your feet pointing down at the ground, and when you reach the end of the bungee you’ll be automatically flipped the right way round.

Top tip: only do the Elevator if you have access to a rubber (Kiwi/ Euro) cord to avoid hurting yourself and doing your ankles some serious harm!

Jump Safely, Jump Insured

Whether you’re going for the jump of a lifetime or plan to tick off all of our suggested bungee jump techniques, make sure your travel insurance covers you. Let’s Go Insure offers cover for one or multiple jumps, and our friendly staff are on hand to help you with getting covered for all of your daredevil antics!

Fun Facts About Skiing to Amuse the Kids

Fun Facts About Skiing to Amuse the Kids

I think that there is no type of family holiday that’s better than a ski holiday in a catered chalet. Family skiing trips allow you to bond, spend quality time together in a unique set-ting and try new activities. In addition to this, you definitely won’t have to spend time cooking if you book a catered chalet! You can benefit from the cosy accommodation’s roominess and great facilities. This will create many happy memories that you will all look back on fondly.
If you want to pique the kids’ enthusiasm in the run-up to the holiday, there is no better way than intriguing them with some fun facts about skiing. Here is a collection of my fa-vourites.

 

Origins

There is some debate about where the thrilling winter sport of skiing originated. Many claim that it was invented in the snowy terrain of Norway, as ancient carvings about ski-ing have been discovered in this area. Another reason for believing that it first began in Norway is that the word ‘ski’ comes from the Old Norse word skíð, which translates to ‘a piece of wood’.

Sounds like a solved case, right? Wrong! It is thought that tribesmen in the Altai Moun-tains (in Central and East Asia) were shredding powder even before the Scandinavians. A ski that dates back to approximately 8000-7000 BC was uncovered near a lake in Russia, creating an interesting debate about the true origins of this hugely popular activ-ity.

Early Form of Transportation

Back in these prehistoric days, it is unlikely that people were skiing for fun. Instead, the sport surely served as an early form of transportation. It is easy to see why, as it provides the ability to quickly travel across challenging terrain – it’s not surprising, then, that skiing was even used as a mode of transportation during the First and Second World Wars.

Heard of a Snurfer?

Let’s quickly turn our attention to snowboarding. Did you know that the very first snow-board was called a ‘snurfer’? This somewhat comical name was given to a contraption that was invented by the American Sherman Poppen in 1965, when he connected two skis to create a skateboard without wheels. Unfortunately, the funny name did not stick, but about one million snurfers were sold over the next decade.

Olympic Sport

Alpine/downhill racing originated in Sweden and dates back to 1879, but it did not be-come an Olympic event until 1936. This is unlike cross-country skiing, which has been a part of every single Winter Olympics since its inaugural year in 1924. In contrast, snow-boarding only made its Olympic debut at the 1998 Games in Nagano, Japan.

Space Skiing

This fun fact is certainly one to remember. Astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who was on the famous space shuttle Apollo 17, claims that our moon has the perfect terrain for cross-country skiing and that this technique could actually help astronauts traverse its surface. Who knows – perhaps one day families will be able to book lunar ski holidays!

Speed skiing – faster than a car!

Skiing is one of the fastest sports in the world, and some speed skiers can reach speeds that are faster than a car! Passenger cars can reach speeds of around 120 mph, whilst the current world record for skiing is a blistering 156.2 mph. This was set by the Italian skier Simone Origone in 2006.

A Global Activity

Skiing is immensely popular in modern times, and those who have experienced the adrenaline rush and awesome surroundings know why! You can find ski resorts in around 80 countries worldwide, and approximately 350 million people visit these resorts every year.

These fun facts are sure to dazzle your little ones – consider sharing them before your trip or possibly in your catered chalet after a fun day on the slopes!

French Cruise Secrets: Marne River

French Cruise Secrets: Marne River

River Marne has inspired artists, such as Cézanne and Pissarro, for many years, and continues to inspire everyone who meets today. Barging vacations in France are an ideal way to experience the rich history of Marne, as well as learn more about technical accomplishments that help make it an important trade route across the country. French Cruise Secrets: Marne River
To the Seine: The River Marne Basics

The French waterway is 514 kilometers long and starts in the Langres highlands. The river headed west, joining the famous Seine Seine in the upper reaches of Paris. On its way through the French countryside, Marne passes through a captivating location like Meaux – famous for its ‘Prince of Cheese’ brie – and Jouarre village, home to a stunning 12th century Benedictine monastery. Along with its centuries-old heritage, this French region has an impressive wine-growing tradition. French Cruise Secrets: Marne River

The oldest lotus in France?

The Canal de Cornillon at Meaux was built about 800 years ago at the beginning of the 13th century. This canal is the oldest in France and built as a 500m short cut, bypassing a very generous watering river. In the nineteenth century, Marne became an important trade route, connecting Paris with the eastern rivers, therefore many lateral canals were built to aid its navigation. The most impressive canal is the 64-kilometer Canal latéal à la Marne, which handles a height difference of over 30 meters with 15 keys.

What to Look For in Barge Vacations in France

If you are lucky enough to sail along Marne during your barge vacation in France, there are some sites you should not miss. The countryside around the river was very important in the second world war. In fact, Château-Thierry – best known for its multiple war graves and warnings – is at the center of the last German attack on WW1. Visit the funeral that runs in Belleau Wood, which was established in honor of the 4th Marine Brigade of the 2nd Army Division of the U.S. The remains of the nearby trenches and shell holes serve as a visual reminder of the battles that occurred in this area.

With a lighter note, you should visit the delightful city of Epernay – the Champagne capital (the drink!). The famous Avenue de Champagne is lined with impressive mansions and is home to the region’s most prestigious wine producers, if not the world. You’ll find people like Moët et Chandon, Mercier, Veuve Clicquot, Pol Roger and de Castellane. As you roam around town remember that over 200 underground cave miles are under your feet. Sprinkled with some of the world’s most whiny bubbly, some of these cellars are open for tours, a wonderful introduction to the Champagne magic world.

Perhaps this glimpse of Marne River culture and history has encouraged you to venture into its waters for the next barge vacation in France. French Cruise Secrets: Marne River

Cruising the Canal de Briare: a Barger’s Delight

Cruising the Canal de Briare: a Barger’s Delight

The picturesque Canal de Briare, which connects the valleys of the Seine and the Loire, is notable for a number of reasons apart from the delightful scenery through which it wends its way. A popular route for both private and commercial cruising vessels, the canal is renowned as one of the loveliest places for a barge holiday in France as well as being a highly impressive feat of engineering.
A Pioneering History

 

The canal is one of the country’s oldest manmade waterways, built between 1602 and 1642 under the patronage of Henry IV. When first constructed, it linked directly into the Loire at Montargis, but later in the nineteenth century the building of the famous Briare Aqueduct created a bypass to La Cognardière, 2.6km away. Despite its name, the aqueduct actually forms part of the Canal latéral à la Loire.

An Engineering Triumph

The canal was also the first to be constructed at summit level using “pound locks”, which feature a chamber with gates at either end to control the height of the water within. (Before then locks were created with a single gate.) A summit level canal first rises and then falls along its course, and in the case of the 57km Canal de Briare, it rises through 12 locks before falling through another 24 on an 85m descent.

During construction a number of artificial lakes were created in order to feed water into the locks. At the most precipitous location, Rogny, it was necessary to build what was in effect a “staircase” of seven locks in order to navigate the fall of the canal. While it was without a doubt an outstanding feat of engineering, the design caused huge hold-ups as each vessel had to navigate all seven locks before the next was able to pass through. In the end the staircase of locks was abandoned and the canal re-routed to bypass them, but the town was later renamed Rogny-les-Sept-Ecluses in their honour.

Attractions en Route

Along with the locks at Rogny-les-Sept-Ecluses, the many other attractions along the course of the canal make it a popular route for the itinerary of a barge holiday in France. In Montargis, one of the most renowned local businesses to have put this pretty town on the map is the Mazet Praline Shop. The confectioner still makes its praline treats to the recipe of founder, Leon Mazet, who opened the shop in 1903. As well as a range of chocolates and other delicacies, the shop is famous for its signature caramelised almond, the Prasline Mazet de Montargis.

Situated in the commune of Saint-Fargeau, the magnificent seventeenth-century Renaissance-style Château de Saint Fargeau is the cultural centrepiece of the region, with its chequered history dating back some one thousand years. Its present distinctive pentagonal construction surrounded by six imposing towers is built on top of an original fortress commissioned by Héribert, son of King Hugh Capet. Even though it is privately owned, many parts of the castle are open for public visitation.

From Ancient Trade to Modern Leisure

For many centuries the Canal de Briare existed as an important channel to transport coal, wood, wine and other supplies from the Loire Valley to Paris. Today, this beautiful waterway serves as one of the most appealing locations to explore on a barge holiday in France.

Whether you’re just planning to swim to be fit and stay active, or you’re good at swimming and looking for a very suitable swimsuit for your next trip to the beach, choosing a swimsuit is not an easy task. While it may seem like you can pick something out and do it, it’s not easy with the thousands of types and styles of swimwear and swimming costumes that you can choose on the market that can confuse you.
If you are trying to find a comprehensive guide to help you choose the perfect two-piece costume for your type and comfort level, this is the ideal article for you to guide you through every aspect of choosing the right swim suit for your next trip.

The best guide to find the best bikini for your next trip

Materials The first thing you need to focus on when choosing a swimsuit costume is the material to be made. Although there are a number of fashion outfits on the market made of cotton or polyester, the fact is that these fabrics will not be very comfortable for you to wear. They are not only able to hold water, which can make them quite heavy and uncomfortable, they are also very useless in terms of providing any support. While this is great for poolside parties, you definitely do not want to risk wardrobe damage in front of hundreds of people. Neoprene is a material that has high strength and is able to give you support. The material is flexible, fast dry and completely durable. The Neoprene swimsuit, therefore, is the way to go.

This type of bikini is one of the most popular types of swimwear and can look good on anyone. Whether you choose a bikini neoprene with a traditional string tie style, a slightly less secure or sportier style that is more ergonomically designed or somewhere in between, the trick is to find something that you feel comfortable and it shows the amount. Your skin comfortably enters Neoprene, becoming a molding material, you can be sure that no matter what style you choose, it will stick to your body and emphasize your curves perfectly. If you want to be more simple, monokini one part can also be a great idea for you.

If you are a beginner and not comfortable enough with a swim, neoprene buoy jackets can be a great option that can help you out and help you feel more comfortable while swimming. This life jacket can add buoyancy and can help you feel lighter, which can help you float while you are in the water, making it an ideal peak for beginners who are not confident enough to swim.

Color There are no hard and fast rules in terms of color. Whether you want to choose solid colors or prints, it should be your choice completely. A good idea is to pair the top that is printed on a solid basis or to follow a coordinated top and bottom style.

With these tips and ideas, you can choose the best swimsuit for your next vacation or for a workout. The best guide to find the best bikini for your next trip

Man vs Wildlife – Creating a Sustainable Society on Galapagos

Man vs Wildlife – Creating a Sustainable Society on Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands are primarily known for their abundance of unique wildlife and as the place in which Charles Darwin’s conducted the research that led to his Theory of Evolution. For those who explore the area on a Galapagos wildlife cruise, a visit to this fragile, fascinating chain of islands is a once-in-a-lifetime experience; but for more than 25,000 people, the archipelago is home.
A Growing Population

 

Since the 1970s the population has increased greatly, with more than 75% of the current number having migrated from the mainland. Human occupation is restricted to an area that encompasses just 3% of the total land, with the vast majority living in the coastal towns on Santa Cruz, Floreana, San Cristobal and Isabela. A far smaller proportion (around 15%) lives in the more rural areas.

Most of the migration occurred for economic reasons, with a rapidly growing tourism industry and a declining standard of living on the Ecuadorian mainland. Before the implementation of the special immigration protocols in 1998, it was estimated that at the then-current rate, the population of the archipelago could double every decade. Since then, stricter controls have been put in place by the Ecuadorean government, which include a system of Transit Control Cards for all visitors coming into the area on Galapagos wildlife cruise itineraries.

Creating a Sustainable Society

Creating a sustainable society in a conservation area is not without its challenges, but the Conservancy of the islands is dedicated to the ongoing education of residents to “become champions of conservation”. The aim is to encourage locals to look at subsistence through a different lens to that of mainland living. Rather than trying to recreate a lifestyle that relies heavily on imported produce, machinery and techniques that are at odds with the environment, it encourages locals to consider themselves “stewards of the archipelago”, and live within a system more compatible with biodiverse preservation.

Education: the Key to the Future

Along with the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Ministry of Education, the Conservancy is working towards education reform designed to foster a strong sense of values and engagement. Their focus is on demonstrating examples of “best practice” to teachers and administrators first, with a view to transferring this to classrooms.

Sustainable Practices in the Community

Another area in which the Conservancy is active is in increasing the capacity of sustainable agriculture throughout the archipelago, by demonstrating alternative methods of farming and environmental management.

Introduced domestic pets present a grave danger to the local wildlife; the Conservancy’s Humane Pet Management promotes responsible pet ownership and sterilisation in partnership with the Animal Balance organisation.

FUNDAR

The local Foundation for Responsible Alternative Development (FUNDAR) believes the establishment of a strong civil society is imperative to the base of any social change in the archipelago. “Citizens must act together with a common goal in order for change to happen.” While only a very small percentage of locals oppose the concept of sustainable development, in reality not much is understood about what it entails. They say it is an inter-generational process, which involves allowing residents to benefit in the “now”, but in a way that also assures that future generations can benefit too.

The Responsibility of All

While there is still some way to go until the region becomes a truly sustainable society, everybody who visits can do their part to ensure that the values are upheld. For anyone visiting on a Galapagos wildlife cruise, this means respecting the National Park Code of Conduct at all times and not doing anything to upset the balance of the ecosystem.

The Culinary Charm of Chamonix

The Culinary Charm of Chamonix

Renowned for its superb skiing and breath-taking scenery, Chamonix also has some truly divine places to dine. Here are a few of the best restaurants this charming ski resort has on offer all year round.

Les Vieilles Luges

Reachable only by 20-minute hike or on skis, you will certainly have earned your supper at this delightful 250-year-old farmhouse when you make it there. Sit by a crackling fire and soak up the atmosphere underneath the low wooden beams, all the while enjoying rich dishes including their signature grand-mère’s bœuf bourguignon. Wash it down with some of their very tasty mulled wine.

Crèmerie du Glacier

For all fromage fanatics among you, this cheese-lover’s paradise is a must-visit when in Chamonix. A forest chalet is the setting for Chef Claudy’s world-renowned croûte aux fromages: bread, soaked in a secret recipe white wine sauce, topped with a healthy layer of some of the best cheese in the country and baked until golden and delicious.

Auberge du Bois Prin

It’s well worth the effort heading to Les Moussoux to dine at Auberge du Bois Prin if only for the stunning views of Mont Blanc it boasts. The views, as spectacular as they are, certainly won’t be the most memorable aspect of your time here. Sample modern and traditional French plates from duck foie gras to mousseline, and don’t skip the cheese course, which is simply delectable! For those of you concerned about food miles, you will be delighted to learn that all of the vegetables and herbs used in the menu are grown in the hotel grounds, which you can look over should you choose to dine on the terrace – well worth braving the winter temperatures for!

How to Get There

Selecting the Right End Profile

Selecting the Right End Profile

When the time comes to remodel your kitchen, one of the biggest decisions you should make is what to use for your counter boss. Butcher blocks, laminate, granite, marble, and counter quartz counters are just a few of your choices at Johns Creek. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, including price and durability. Once you select your top counter, you will need to choose what you want to crawl like. Choosing an edge profile can be almost as difficult as choosing a counter top, so let’s look at the options.

Eased Edge – The subsiding edge is the bottom edge which has only a dull sharp angle to give it a smooth, rounded edge. It is usually supplied with a counter over charge.
Bevel – The beveled edge will have a 45 degree viewing angle across the top edge of the counter. You can usually choose from a variety of sizes, such as quarter inch or half inch. A smaller size will often be a free option while a larger bevel may be additional. Selecting the Right End Profile
Bullnose – The bullnose edges are completely round from top to bottom. Instead of a tight curve, a full bullnose will create a slow and gentle drug from the top of the table to the bottom. The other option is a half bullnose, which just circles the top edge and not the entire edge. Both of these options are generally additional costs due to the work required.
Ogee – Ogee is probably one of the most complicated ends for your desk. This is a gentle slope that is hard to describe without pictures. French Ogee is even more complicated and has a more straightforward part to give the impression of luxury that can certainly distinguish your boss. This edge will always incur additional costs, especially for stone counters, due to the labor required to create them. Selecting the Right End Profile

 

Choosing the right edge profile for the new counter tops is just as important as choosing the top right counter by yourself. Whether you decide on a butcher block or quartz counter counter at Johns Creek, your next decision is the tip. A top counter professional will be able to walk you through the process and show examples of each type of counter and edge. They will make sure that you get the best top profile and the best edge for your home. Selecting the Right End Profile
