Working from home, checks and balances for the new normal.  It is no secret that 2020 has been a difficult year. Not only has the Covid-19 virus disrupted the economy but it seems it will also be set to be part of our lives for the near future until everyone has been vaccinated.

Social media and online marketing is a waste of time!


Social media and online marketing is just a big waste of time and energy resources. Speaking as someone who lives and works in the virtual world, I can honestly tell you that for most it is a big waste of time. It consumes your time as well as your energy. You can hop onto Facebook and without realising spend hours doing stuff and then realising “oh shoot it’s 11pm I must go and sleep”. The question to always ask yourself is, “Am I using this strategically?” “Do I even know what I am really doing?” “Those I’ve outsourced work to, do they understand my brand at the core and how to take it further?”

FASA invites you to online networking connecting businesses


We can all agree on one thing, the world has changed!  Navigating the worldwide web is second nature to some but can be very foreign and daunting to most.  As we look at current and future trends, the online world is here to stay.  Working virtually, networking virtually and connecting in the online world will become the norm for many.  There are many advantages to working from home and being able to attend events online from the comfort of your own home.  You don’t have to sit in traffic, you save time in travelling to and from the event venue and you don’t have to organise a babysitter to look after the kids.  You can participate in events while cooking, while having dinner the choice is yours.  What the reset has done is given people more options and it has allowed people to go with the flow.  This means we’ve learnt to understand that anything can happen, like your kid interrupting you on a very important meeting.
