Review. Renew. Reinvigorate.

When it comes to managing our businesses or our assets these are the things we which come as second nature to us.

It's a no-brainer. We review, we try, we take risks, we succeed, we fail although hopefully we don't do the latter too often.

We invest in our businesses and our financial affairs, careful to track their progress and take action and mitigate risk as soon as we see what might be a problem. We have a vested interest in our businesses growth and success.
So that's your investment or your business' growth all squared away and accounted for.
But what about yours?
We are into that last bit of the year when everything seems to be moving at a lightning pace, we are trying desperately to achieve the goals and reach the targets set for this year and really, all most of us want is to survive party season, keep the wheels turning and our heads low so we make through the year unscathed.
Reality is though, now is the time to be projecting forward. I'm not talking about New Year's resolutions or the such (heaven forbid!).
And nor am I talking about the what and the how and the wherefores of your particular business / investment interests.
Now is the time to be looking at you.
What do you need? Where have you slipped, gone off the boil or lost a bit of zest?
Or moreover, how to do build on your current lot?
It's easy enough to sit here and ask yourself those kinds of questions.
The key is in being able to answer them. Honestly. Pragmatically.
We can all do with a bit of self-evaluation. That goes without saying.
But what if you did a SWOT analysis on yourself? What Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats would present and importantly, once you saw it all on paper, what would you do about it?
At a time of year that can be a proper drudge and feel like a perpetual hangover, a bit of mirror gazing can be a pretty powerful thing.
As long as you're prepared to accept what you see and then make the most of what's reflecting back at you.

About: WORDS In business they are your most powerful tool; but use them poorly, and they'll be your undoing. Enter, Meredith Papas and iScribe Consulting. Words are Meredith's business. For the past 20 years Meredith has used the written word as her tool of trade. She cut her teeth as a journalist in Regional Queensland, where she specialised in business, agriculture and industry writing, as well as penning features and profiles on regional businesses and identities. She honed her skills as a sub-editor and proof reader, and then took on leadership roles as a newspaper editor in Mount Isa, Gladstone and Mackay. Add to that, roles as a regional editor and then senior group content editor for one of Asia-Pacific's largest regional media organisations, and it rounds out a solid skill set which spans the full gamut of high-level professional writing. Meredith has a simple philosophy: Everyone has a story to tell. But it's not what you have to say - it's how you say it. From professional bios, to business capability statements; CVs to business cases; funding submissions to content for your website, Meredith will work with you to make sure your clients know exactly what you're about. It's insight. It's experience. It's your story to tell. So, tell it.
