You Choose

As I get older my understanding of the power of choice is much increased. I look back over my life and can see so many times when I had a choice and didn’t actually believe that I had one. Yet I did, every time all the time. It’s been amazing to see how when I[…]

Living in your flow

In my career, I’ve spent a lot of time going around in circles. Some of it truly because I really didn’t know how to package what I do. I’ve used a number of vehicles to try and describe it in a way that others could identify it and purchase it. I’ve questioned myself, stopped and[…]

Be Your Authentic Self

This week I hosted Craft Con a huge software conference dedicated to software craftsmanship, where software developers, programmers, coders and consults got the opportunity to experience some of the best experts in the industry. 1851 people over 4 days with over 70 speakers delivering 73 speeches, plus workshops, meetups and networking a plenty. Hosted at the[…]

Taking Control of Our Need for Validation

We humans are a bit messed up. It is true. I say this because when we are on that self-development journey and in the world of positive thinking we refuse to look at or even admit that there are behaviours that we have which are not so great. These bits we like to skip over,[…]

Because You Can

Believe me, I’ve wasted far too many hours questioning myself and playing the second guessing game. I’ve questioned my validity, my skill set, my confidence, my believability, the experience that I’ve gained over decades, the learning, whether through formal education or self-development. I’m a pretty confident person, but I’ve learned that confidence is not just[…]

Life is a journey… it’s a phrase we hear often but it’s a true one. Many of us are trying to reach a destination that we don’t actually realise is unobtainable. That all elusive success that will leave us feeling like we are complete and whole, that leaves us feeling like we have finally arrived.[…]

47 & Counting – Changing Focus

This has been a really challenging year in so many ways; the death of my mother and my husband’s aunt, health, and business, managing loss and getting to grips with so many political, racial and social changes. So far this year has been a lot! Today, however, is my 47th Birthday and for the first time[…]

Getting Off the Hamster Wheel

I’ve spent much of my life running, not physically but mentally. Running ahead to try and achieve the goals that I have, running to hit that million mark, running to accomplish all that the books tell me that I can. Run, run, run. I’ve been like a hamster on a wheel, trying to catch up[…]

Me For Me

Last week, I left England for Marrakesh, it was a mission of mercy. Mercy on myself and family. I’ve been sick on and off for months and my stress levels and health were challenged. I had had enough as I was struggling to get myself together. I think it was something that Lisa Nicholls in[…]
