Why I blog…

  • Posted on July 15, 2014 at 9:10 pm

A sort of, why I started blogging last week…

I was the child that loved paper, cutting into it, pasting, colouring the whole bit. The child that drew people… not just stick people mind, with clothes, trees with balloon type shapes for leaves on trees.. you get the picture.

A little girl that loved writing with her pentel pens (and still does, helps with creativity)…poetry, day-dreams, thoughts, all sorts of things….

I spent a long time working in publishing, many years, too many to count, and loving it… working with paper you see…

Near where I live, the Historical village has a old printing press area that they run the presses on special occasions (there is one that you operate with your feet, fascinating)… have you ever noticed that all the good presses come from Germany?…

I am thinking maybe there is ink in my blood, way back in my ancestry…
and paper too… every time I see a Doggett (paper brand) truck on the road I want to follow it…

I realised a while back that when you really think about it…people either gravitate to either words or numbers… Guess which one I gravitate too!

So, to me, perfectly natural to start writing, not full blown novels mind (I get impatient, and know how long they really take)… just little pieces of thoughts… blogging is perfect really…

till next time, I will keep blogging ;), Noela

It just makes sense…connecting businesses

  • Posted on July 10, 2014 at 9:44 pm

Hello again —

Sometimes I am surprised. Sometimes what I think is quite normal to do and just part of what I am, is found extraordinary to others.

Take today for example, one of the facebook business groups I told you about, well Thursdays are a thank you day… gratitude day.

My name was mentioned in one of the thank yous. Now don’t get me wrong I have received similar words of thank yous to this one before, just this time there was something different in the way it was worded that struck a chord in me.

‘Thank you for being the amazing connector and resource that you are! I know that many of the people I have met and/or collaborated with here in group are as a direct result of your introduction…’


business sense

Connecting Businesses

I was humbled by those words. To me and my view of networking it is a natural way of thinking to me.

My form of business matchmaking, a personalised LinkedIN you could say.

It really got me thinking those thank you words…thinking back, even before social media, even before facebook,  I was ‘connecting’ my tradies, to other tradies as a property manager.

To me it just makes sense, to encourage business relationship building and forming mutual collaborations.

So here’s to business relationships.

Till next time,

All the best in your business journey, Noela

Introducing FND blog…

  • Posted on July 7, 2014 at 9:19 pm

Well isn’t this exciting.

After quite a time to now putting pen to paper is quite exhilarating.

Quite exhilarating indeed to write one’s first ‘official’ blog post.

My Vision for FND blog:

I am the admin of two business groups on facebook (and was head-hunted by third), so daily I see where the hurt, pain and frustration of running a business and running that business well can be coming from. You could say I am seeing into the heart of the business.

FND blog will be from the very beginning a community. It will be an area where you, the reader, can come and learn or just be informed enough to know what is out there to be able to ask for help.

I love learning and love to soak up new information daily that I know in some small way will enrich my life or improve my business.

What is my Business? What is FND or in long speak.. From Noela’s Desktop:

My business is you. The business owner you. Think of me and this blog as a resource and as a product.

My end wish is that you will be able to build confidence enough to do yourself or have enough knowledge to understand what is required and say ‘Noela please help me’.

Sometimes you will be reading posts about what I have learnt and sometimes you will be learning with me.

As they say ‘No body knows everything!’


When you come to visit FND blog and have a read it won’t be just my content you can read, but also the content of some great guest bloggers. Guest bloggers who resonant with me, people I think that are pretty special and I know you will too. Won’t that be exciting!

I have a few people up my sleeve already but if you are quite chatty like me or want to share something you have learnt business wise and think your content is in align with what is shared here, please let me know here or on my facebook page and we can go from there. The blog post you share here must be new content and not shared anywhere else.

Thank you for reading…

…till next time.

All the best in your business journey,  Noela
