A month ago I finished a three month group Mastermind and  made more progress in my business than in the previous year.

What does Productivity look like?

Productivity isn’t being busy. Productivity isn’t being exhausted. Productivity isn’t about maximising every single millisecond. Productivity isn’t even about output or how much you achieve or how quickly. You could do the crossword in your fastest time yet but for what? Why does that matter? You could complete a hundred crosswords a day which certainly […]

Responsible for Valentine’s Day

I was going to write a post about being a confident single lady on Valentine’s Day. But V-Day has never turned me into that ‘why am I still single?’ person so actually don’t have that much to say on the subject. I’ve always just got on with life which isn’t exactly startling and helpful insight. […]

Having the Confidence to Quit my Job

Last year I did something I didn’t think I’d do again – I quit my job without having another role lined up. Scary. It was a bold move. It has taken me a while to process everything that led to that point. To distill the lessons learned. It’s one of those scenarios that are hell […]

Lessons on Living a Generous Life

If you ask any of us, I’m sure we would all proclaim to be generous in some way. That it’s a value we aspire to live up to. But how well do we embrace it really? How much is living generously a true guiding principle in our lives and how much is it just a […]
