All Australians and Western Australia is not the exception love to take a day off whenever there is an opportunity to enjoy the company of our family or friends and this time; we are having a long weekend to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.

When I first arrived in Perth, I often questioned why Western Australia celebrates the Queen’s birthday in September while in other states it usually falls in June.

But before I tell you why Western Australia celebrates the Queen’s Birthday in September, I would like to share a short history of it.

History of Australia

As you probably already know, The British colony of New South Wales was established with the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 vessels under the command of Captain Arthur Phillip in January 1788. That was the first year that the Monarch’s birthday was celebrated in the new country.

What Lifestyle Would You Like to Create as a Senior Entrepreneur?

Has the idea of becoming a senior entrepreneur and improving your quality of life has been in your mind?

Have the thought of building a freedom lifestyle business sounds intriguing to you?

You probably have heard that a lifestyle business can provide you freedom, financial independence, and total control of your life, but it is a foreign concept to most.

When I was at school the focus was to get good grades, go to college and get a good job.

If anyone talked about getting into a conventional business it implied a massive risk.

Thanks to the internet, people with entrepreneurial aspirations can start and run a lifestyle business worldwide, and it very well applies to seniors as well.

I am a full-time carer for my husband and have a son with multiple sclerosis, so I was looking for an opportunity to allow me to work from home and gave me a head start and unlimited income potential.

What Happens on Mexican Independence Day 2019?

Even though I have been away from Mexico, the country I was born, for over 30 years, I still have close connections with all my family and friends who are very much part of my daily life.

So I thought it would be a good time to share what happens in Mexico on Independence Day and why it is such a momentous occasion.

The month of September is referred to as “el Mes de la Patria” (month of the homeland).

Mexico commemorates a proclamation by Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla on September 16th 1810, in the village of Dolores, near Guanajuato.

On September 15 at 11 p.m., the eve of Independence Day, the President of Mexico rings a bell from the balcony of the Mexican National Palace. He yells to the crowd below and they respond by saying Viva. This goes on until after a third time, everyone yells “Viva Mexico.” The people then wave flags and ring noisemakers. The Mexican anthem is sung and fireworks are set off to light up the sky.

On September 16th, a military parade takes place in Mexico City.

Brass bands fill the streets and governors re-enact “El Grito,” or the famous cry for freedom in major government palaces.

It is a big celebration for Mexicans with plenty of parties, festive decorations, parades, music, fireworks and plenty of traditional food.

Do you see sales as a labor intensive strategy?

The most popular forms to win business are local advertising, call calling, or door to door sales people who go to businesses and encourage business owners to advertise with them.

But, If you are looking for time freedom, it is imperative that you stop trading your time for money.

The mindset of trading time for money is how most people operate, but it limits our time to pursue the things we love to do.

For me, the idea of building a business that I truly love and enjoy time and financial freedom was something that caught my attention.

So I did some research and started my online business. It is the best thing I have ever done.

But, after the first excitement, I realised that the first step was to change my mindset.

I had to leave behind my traditional way of thinking.

Change Your Mindset

Do You Have Doubts As You Start Your New Business?

Many of us believe that successful, assertive people never have any doubts – that they are confident about every choice they make, but even the most talented entrepreneurs experience self-doubt at some point

After the initial excitement, many of us start to have doubts, worries, and concerns about whether we could do what we need to do to get results, not only in our business but in our life.

In my case, I knew I had an excellent course, mentors and training available, but I wasn’t clear in terms of what actions steps to take.

I realise that one of the things that hold people out, more than anything else when starting a business are our limiting beliefs.

Are These Questions Getting in the Way of Your Business Success?
