Go and have that hot stone massage, or <insert your favourite thing here>!   Life can be super busy, even doing the normal everyday things   On the weekends these days, I find myself with my children’s sports on both Saturday and Sunday, with cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking slotted in where necessary.   Through the week, I head to the gym most mornings as I balance full time work and being a wife and mum to two active 11 year old twins. This can mean taking them to trai...

What is MY story?!   For many years, I knew that I wanted to do something that made a difference, but I could never put my finger on it.   My mind would always go to individual pieces, and what I was “trained” to do in my 20 year career of Supply Chain & Finance.   It was when I started to really listen to people and understand my past that my true passion in life came to the surface.   Let me take a step back to my childhood, and help you understand a bit more about me, ...

What gets you off your butt?  What sets you in motion and forces you to take the action you know to be beneficial but have been delaying?    Your family?  Your bank balance?  Your cause?  Your disappointment levels?  Health?  Your lust for a better outcome next time?  Relationships?  Reputation?  Or do those things not inspire action.  Are you okay with these things being… mediocre?  If you’re fine with mediocre generally, may I suggest you don’t go into business for yourself?  If satis...

Learning to Say No- Advice from Hazel Walker the “Queen of Networking”  Over committing to others is one of the top challenges for women. We are reluctant to say no to family and friends.

All the while not getting our own goals met, neglecting our own health and wellbeing and all the while building up resentment and anxiety.   On top of that, we do not ask others to help us when we need it thereby allowing more resentment to build ...

Normal human behaviour is that we are effective and efficient at the things we enjoy so chances are the opposite is also true.  This means we spend more time and energy doing things we don’t like simply because, well, we don’t like them!!!  They annoy us, sap our energy, increase stress because we don’t do them well or they are boring to us and probably deflate us a little along the way. So here’s another question… is having these thoughts on a regular basis going to help you maintain the pos...
