Does your website #WOW Your Customers & Prospects???

Billa Media Website designed by Naomi Mc Laughlan

Website design and functionality are often misunderstood and underrated! Many websites I come across, appear to have been designed with no clear branding, direction of the customer journey and usefulness alike, which is obviously not helpful when you consider the ROI (Return on Investment) of it. And I am puzzled, how business owners wonder why their websites don’t convert interested prospects into happy customers.

When you think of your own website;

Do you know what’s missing on your website?

A great website offers your prospects, customers and clients a clear consumer journey, which in turn will allow you to utilize your website to create brand awareness and ultimately make sales.

Do you suffer from website shame?

When you are one of the people who are embarrassed to say YES to this question and rather not hand out their website details, you need to do something about it, RIGHT NOW!

Why you procrastinate with your business idea(s)

Procrastinating Naomi Mc Laughlan

Several times this week I had entrepreneur client calls which revealed a significant factor that may cause procrastinating behavior. Funny enough each entrepreneur I spoke to this past week operates a different type of business, offering a variety of products and services. And yet, all shared a similar approach to getting started or to finish projects which can potentially aid their businesses.

So what is the problem here?

I can tell you what I consider to be THE major factor; A STRONG WHY is missing!!! Yes, in all cases!

If you do not have a strong WHY, you feel less likely to start or complete something where the outcome is unknown, or where the undertaking may have some form of opportunity costs attached.

It is often easier to not take any action, instead of taking a leap of faith.

Been there, done that too in the past… For example with ‘’ my latest brand addition. It took me to finish my MBA Media Leadership degree first, to being able to fully concentrate on the project (or at least that’s what I told myself LOL)…

So how to overcome procrastination?

Well, the easiest way to overcome procrastination is to evaluate the idea / project from all aspects, for instance time to completion, resources necessary and anticipated advantages if successfully complete, as well as possible drawbacks and ‘worst case scenario’ mapping.

That’s it? Yes, that’s it!

If you clarify why you want to or rather should work on the idea / project, you will have listed all aspects that either speak for or against it.

Lastly, every time you ponder about starting or completion, just remind yourself ‘WHY’ you undertook your new venture in the first place.


All the Best,

Naomi xxx

30+ International Websites for Parents of Children affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (updated)

When my youngest daughter was diagnosed at age 3, I found it difficult to find resources that I could use to understand the diagnosis better and to find guidance on how to approach the new life change overall. Although I was initially given some booklets about Autism, I still had many question unanswered. I was looking to find websites and articles about:

  • Diagnosis Information
  • Day-to-Day Life
  • Dietary Advice
  • Parents Chats & Communities
  • National and International Societies
  • Education & Work
  • Strategies
  • Therapies
  • Games & Play work
  • How to access Grants
  • Charities & NGOs
  • Family Support Hotlines
  • Links to further help

Autism Awareness NaomiMcLaughlan

Then after hours and hours of research I felt that it was a pity that there wasn’t a list or directory at the time that I could access instead. As each child is so unique in its own right and methods and strategies which are available today vary so much, I find that having a wide range of options to be the key of success in terms of finding support for your child and family.

Having a child affected by ASD or Asperger’s Syndrome, can be challenging for your child’s social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour, but also everyone involved, therefore I hope that the following list of websites allow you to find resources that can be helpful for you and reduce the strain of searching around the internet yourself.

Please note: The list of supportive websites is categorized alphabetically by country. I do not endorse or recommend any website, product or treatment in particular. This list is intended for informational purposes only. Please consult with experienced professionals to determine the most effective treatment for your own child as each child and situation are unique.

P.S.: The update to the list (Hobbies & Travel and Seniors) came to happen thanks to Susan W. from Getting To Wellness, as she thanked me for the extensive list, but was kind enough to suggest that children stay children even when they get older, hence I have added the list for seniors.

I hope the list is helpful for you and I would appreciate if you share it! Thank you 😉

P.P.S: Did you know that my daughter inspired me to write ‘Judy no need to be scared!’, it is available via Amazon and is based on Judy who is scared of many things; noise, water and insects are some of them. Her mother helps her, to get over her fear by pointing out the nice side of the situations. Children on the Autistic Spectrum with anxieties and phobias benefit greatly from this engaging story! Includes 2 Pages of Info & Activities for children with fears and phobias.

Piaget’s Theory of Genetic Epistemology

How do children develop?

Reading children

One of the most influential theory’s was formed by the Swiss development psychologist and philosopher Jean Piaget born on 9th August 1896 – his epistemological studies with children.

Piaget was the Director of the International Bureau of education and said in 1934 “Only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual.” In 1955 Piaget founded the International Center for Genetic Epistemology in Geneva. He directed it until he died on 16th September 1980. For his work he has been awarded numerous prizes and honorary degrees.

Genetic epistemology the combination of the theory of cognitive development and epistemological development was Piaget’s live long focus as well as the education of children as he was a father to two daughters and a son.

Piaget described four development stages:

The Sensorimotor stage from 0 to 2 years, were children are self-centred and experience the world true their senses.Baby

From 2 to 7 years he called the stage Preoperatioanl stage. Children practice their motor skills. They act egocentric, but as they grow older they are less egocentric. Children don’t think logically at this stage.


The next stage described is the Concrete operational stage; this stage happens the 7th to 11 year of age. Children are no longer egocentric and think logically, with the help of aids.Kids Group

Formal operational stage starts from 11 to 16 and onwards.

Children develop abstract thought and can easily conserve and think logically in their mind.

Jean Paget’s theory about development still influences fields like psychology, sociology, education, epistemology, economics and law worldwide.
