The Healing Power of Pets

The Healing Power of Pets

The power of pets to reduce stress, enhance happiness and increase motivation are concepts that have long been discussed. For me, this topic became all the more relevant a little while ago after welcoming puppies into our home. I must confess, I have always liked pets, particularly dogs, and liked the thought of having them around. But even I have blown away by the positive impact they have had on our lives. As such, I thought it would be worthwhile delving into research looking at the healing power of pets. I also wanted to figure out if this all depended on the type of pet you have. After all, not everyone has the means or space to have larger pets like cats or dogs. Continue reading “The Healing Power of Pets”

Grow Your Side Hustle into a Successful Business – Courtesy of Quid Corner

Grow Your Side Hustle into a Successful Business – Courtesy of Quid Corner

The following post on growing your side hustle into a successful business was recently released on Quid Corner. Personally, I found it to be of interest and thought it might be of value to you as well.

The post sets out 10 steps to go from a side-hustle into a full-time occupation. I particularly liked the idea of reaching out to mentors to support you on your journey and working with complimentary businesses to maximize your reach. The Pro Tip on using LinkedIn to reach out to mentors is a great suggestion and one I will be looking to utilize.

The post does go on to stress the importance of taking small, considered steps towards achieving your objectives as in reality, it’s not sprint but a marathon. Also, as Quid Corner is an English website, some of the terminology and references do cater to a more local audience. That being said the value of the content remains. Let me know what you think.

Master Your Daily Routine – Secrets of the Millionaire Mind Book Review

Master Your Daily Routine – Secrets of the Millionaire Mind Book Review

I was speaking with a friend a while ago and mentioned that I was finding it hard to stay disciplined with daily tasks. I had good intentions but consistent effort remained elusive. My friend recommended that I check out Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. It had helped my friend with his daily routine and to take consistent effort towards his goals. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind was not a book that I had been familiar with but reading it has had a profound impact on my life.

A Roadmap for Mega Wealth – As Illustrated by Visual Capitalist

A Roadmap for Mega Wealth – As Illustrated by Visual Capitalist

I came across the following chart recently on one of my BFF’s sites, Visual Capitalist, and thought to share given its potential implications as a roadmap for mega wealth. The chart looked at how the asset composition of a person changes as net worth increases from $10,000 to a $1 Billion. Now, I use the term roadmap loosely. This chart is presented purely for infotainment.

A Roadmap to Benjamins.

For purposes of this exercise, net worth has been classed as the assets that a person has remaining (such as savings, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, real estate, vehicles, retirement accounts) after subtracting all liabilities (including student loans, mortgages, credit cards and other forms of debt).

How to Read a Book a Day – Jay Shetty Shares His Secrets

I recently discovered Jay Shetty and came across the following YouTube clip of his called “How I Read a Book a Day” which I thought to share.

Jay Shetty
Look at this guy. Seriously!

For those who are unaware of his work, Jay Shetty is an extremely photogenic storyteller, video marketer and presenter who spent his early 20s as a monk in India. Jay has more than one million followers globally and his viral videos have racked up over 200 million views.

In the following clip, Jay discusses some hacks he uses to quickly extract the most value out of each book he sets out to read. He focuses on cherry-picking key areas out of a book which are of particular relevance to you rather than automatically reading cover to cover. Like me, this may be a little bit of a foreign concept for those of you who have always consumed books in their entirety. The following clip outlines how Jay does this: Continue reading “How to Read a Book a Day – Jay Shetty Shares His Secrets”

Dreaming Boldly – The Amazing Story of Dr Tererai Trent

How do you go from having 4 kids by 18 to chasing your dreams?

Today, I wanted to share with you the amazing journey of Dr Tererai Trent, described by Oprah Winfrey as her “all-time favorite guest”.

Having children while still a child herself, Tererai was destined to have the same life as her mother and grandmother before her in a rural cattle-herding village in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Then at the age of 19, while expecting her 5th child, a chance encounter helped her to dream and changed her life forever.

Dr Trent recently shared her amazing story on Lewis Howes’ School of Greatness podcast:
