Tip #1 Brainstorm what makes you feel great and in ‘the happiness zone’
Look at what makes you feel inspired and happy in your life. It may be necessary to go back into the past to remember what really fills you with delight. List everything that you love doing. Then start to integrate these ‘delights’ into your weekly calendar. Read more
The Missing Ingredient In Your Business Plan

My mentor, Janice Smith, always says if you are tired you are lacking either B vitamins, oxygen (iron delivers this to the cells) or food. Funnily enough in my experience the missing factor is often food. We just don’t fuel our bodies sufficiently in the morning to sustain us throughout the day. Your grandmother was right, you do need a good hearty breakfast, a healthy mid morning snack and lunch before 1pm. The other advantage of this is that you won’t get those 3pm munchies because your blood sugar levels will be more stable.
Try this breakfast to boost energy, give you a good source of B vitamins and supply all those anti-aging nutrients you need for beautiful skin as well. Read more

Venus is giving back through our sponsored membership in each of our Venus Groups. Waikato Breast Cancer Trust has just joined Waikato Venus.
One Waikato woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every working day, that’s 250-300 women per year.
There are over 2,900 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in New Zealand each year.
The Waikato Breast Cancer Trust enables research and education into breast cancer diagnosis, prevention and treatment. The Trust is running or has completed more than 30 different studies/clinical trials. As well as being involved in clinical trials and research studies the Trust administers the Waikato Breast Cancer Register. This register aims to provide essential health information that will lead to a better understanding of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and outcome. We aim to compare our performance against New Zealand and International best practice with a view to providing better services to Waikato and New Zealand women.
How can Venus Network help Waikato Breast Cancer Trust?
As a not for profit organisation we rely on grants, sponsorship, fundraisers and donations to carry out our essential activities. Venus and it member’s will be a huge help in increasing our networks to ensure we are able to continue with our valuable research.

Topic Question: What kind of business would make a great strategic partner or alliance for you? This comes down to who your target market is and who shares this same market with you. At your meeting I invite you to share with your group a specific strategic alliance that you would like to be introduced to. The more specific the better.
What is a strategic alliance?
A joint venture or strategic alliance is a form of partnership where businesses come together to share knowledge, promotion and referrals.
