“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential,”

Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965, Former British Prime Minister)

Regular Small Business Diva readers would probably know that this statement from Sir Winston Churchill is perfectly aligned with my philosophies. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to do something you want to do, nor how smart you are or how much time or money you have… it’s the ability to take action and keep taking action – baby steps if necessary – that counts.

Here’s to your success in business,




  1. Here, here Donna-Marie. Business is so much a mental game of perseverance.

  2. If you would like a tool to manage your small business activities and Projects, you can use this web aplication:

    You can use it to manage and prioritize your Goals (for business but also in other areas of your life), Projects and Tasks. It has a Checklists section, for the routines and repetitive activities that any business has to do. Also, it features a Schedules section and a Calendar, for scheduling you time and activities.

    Some features from GTD are also present, like Contexts and Next Actions.

    And it’s available on the mobile phone too, so you can access it from anywhere.

  3. I couldn’t agree more with this. Sometimes when trying to balance a small business with small kids it seems like baby steps are the only thing possible! (But at least you know some progess is being made……)
