The hardest thing with being stuck in Australia, is not being able to meet the peole you most admire. (Seth,Joi,greedygirl...etc.)

Mostly we are stuck with the latest fad marketer (not taking anything away from rich dad poor dad) but we never get to here the cutting edge, such as viral marketing (My dad found a copy of Unleashing the Ideavirus at a clearence sale) and we have to order the latest via amazon as Australia is so far behind.

Australia is the best place to live but it still kills me to see the marketing crap that people find so exciting that is just too far backward....
My life is my family......with a bit of entreprneur thrown in!

Family his taken hold of me with the birth of my daughter Poebe.

My blogging has suffered but now typing away at 12.00am in the morning Australia time, I feel the need to let it all out.

I was extreamly honoured to serch for my blog on google and find that one of my premier places of knowledge The Viral Marketing Blog ( had listed me in her blogroll under people.

Ever sinc reading Seths book Unleashing the Ideavirus I have been enamoured with viral marketing and new ideas. gives me the same inspiration to go ou and MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!

Thank you greedygirl you have made my day :))

Working on the house till 12.30am in the morning then getting up at 5.30 to go to work is KILLING ME!
All this effort to spend a Friday still working on the house ;( but the end result (I Think) is worth it.

We are working on a timeline people....Tuesday the 14th sees the floor sanded and polished by Get A Gleem, the cheapest and easiest to deal with, and then the following Monday the new carpets are to be laid.

After all this, Alicia has the baby the week of the 21st and the sleep will get even shorter ;)))
