Don’t live by anyone else’s rules, create your own. -
Did you know the working week as we know it has only been in place for the last 100 years? It was created by Henry Ford to allow workers time off to enjoy the money they were earning and spend time with loved ones. As his son said, “every man needs more than one day a week for rest and recreation”. On reducing the working week to only 5 days, Henry Ford still paid them for 6 days work. But why would a business owner be so generous? Increased productivity of course!! -
Simple. A worker who rested and allowed themselves to enjoy their lives were more productive and happy at work. Pretty soon, one by one companies began to follow suit and introduced the working week as we know it. -
My point...don’t set yourself back a 100 years when starting out for yourself. Learn from those before you. Work to create a new set of rules, build on what’s gone before. - 🔥Challenge the norm. Create the change you want to see. Work where you want, when you want and how you want. A sustainable business is a successful business. Mould your work to your life not your life to your work👌🏼
We won’t achieve gender equality if we behave as though we’re less worthy. Avenues to power won’t open for us unless we knock on the door.
Workplace inequality is still alive today and it’s time to end it. How? From the ground up!
- Be an active contributor in meetings and discussions. Don’t just sit and let things happen. Prepare yourself beforehand and research the topic so you can contribute usefully and considered information.
- Step up and stop questioning yourself. You don’t have to be perfect to be powerful. We have an influence on society and social expectations. What we do today will change the world for ourselves and the women coming along behind us.
- Build your networks. The road to the top can be unclear and it usually takes more than skills, knowledge and experience to pull off the top jobs. Work on your relationships and start gaining influence.

I'm not going to lie...I LOVE writing shopping lists!⠀
There's just something so satisfying about going into the supermarket and leaving with exactly what you need 💁♀️ Let's be honest, none of us have the time to be wandering around the isles and trying to remember exactly what we need and what we have run out of! Not to mention trying to think of what meals to cook.⠀
Save yourself some time (and stress!) by creating your shopping list in advance and bringing it with you. You can even personalise it with your family name at the top! ❤️
Happy Birthday to our producer, @sarahdepossesse
! Thanks for being such a bad-a$$ boss chick and for making us laugh non-stop. Your muesli bar categorisation skills (and unwavering positivity) really held the team together on set. You’re a strange combo of sunshine personified and (perhaps too much) honesty. Like that time you said “your photos are always crap Maddy” or “Trish – that cardi makes you look like a Grandma” … but you get away with it cause you’re small and cute and we LOVE YOU! Have the best day! Try not to drop your phone in the loo… again. And no, burying it in organic quinoa is not a great idea.
Love from #teamthirty
I feel like Satisfaction is the opposite of resistance, the feeling of satisfaction is like anti frustration, it's like evidence of going in the right direction. So satisfaction is evidneve that I'm on the right track and frustration is the resistance and evidence that you need to let go and stop trying so hard. 👱🏼♀️🍿 maryjames.com.au

3 ways to make more money this week!
Most of you that follows me have a business or you long to have your own business. When it comes to running a business you have to make money. Today I want to tell you 3 ways to make more money this week! Sounds good? Keep on reading.
First of all you have to be consistent with your messaging and your sharing of good content, and you have to do that daily. Or else when you wack out an offer no one really knows you, so then you think that they will buy from you because your offer is sooooo good. Well, there are many good offers out there. You buy things when you trust it, right?! Same goes for your customers. They buy when they trust you. Build up the trust factor every single day.
So let’s say you have been online for a while or you have a local business maybe a massage clinic or you are a hair dresser, stylist, makeup artist etc.
Whatever let’s have som fun and come up with 3 kick ass ideas that will make your bank account explode.
First of all let’s do something amazing for your followers. Let’s make a face-to-face event. If you are a coach you can have a workshop in your local city, or international Paris is never a wrong idea. Make it amazing so clients will say YES immediately they have to be part of this. Those who sign up this week will get a earlybird price and 1:1 time with you. You can charge whatever price you like from $97 to $1997 or more or less. The price has to be aligned with you. Don’t overthink this, just launch it now.
Second we can do is to offer a VIP 1:1 day with you. When I was working as a stylist and makeup artist I had my own Makeover days. They were very popular to give as a gift etc. Or they bought it to themselves or their husband bought it to make them happy. If you are a coach you could offer a VIP day full on to blast thought any blocks with follow up session afterwards. It has everything to do with the energy that is behind your offer. Sell it because you love it. My VIP days are now all around the world in nice cities like Paris, London, Milan etc. Because I love shopping, fashion, nice city vibe and want my clients to travel while they do work they love.
