The Gift of Listening for Christmas

It’s that time of year again. Christmas. The C word. How are you feeling about it? Exhausted at the prospect? Looking forward to some time off? Can’t wait to put it behind you and crack on with the New Year? Either way, this is the very best time to buy yourself a gift, the gift of listening, for Christmas. I’m offering my Listening Vouchers in the lead up to Christmas and the New Year for you to buy yourself something nice which you can cash in whenever you like…after things calm down a bit, once everyone’s gone back to work […]

Lucky 13 for 2015

Is 13 your lucky number? Is today your lucky day? One of my happiest coaching and mentoring offerings each year is Lucky 13, and Lucky 13 for 2015 is no exception. “I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.” Brian Tracy This is the third year I’ve offered my Lucky 13 which started in 2013; there seemed to be an obvious connection which inspired me to create it in the first place. What’s really interesting to me is how many people it brought into my life […]

2014 Review

On 1/1/2014 I wrote a post entitled New Year’s Intentions 2014. Here’s my 2014 Review on how I did. 1. Blog every day during 2014. Done. Absolutely delighted and chuffed with myself. 365 blog posts. This is the 365th! 2. Return to juicy green habits. Nope. Not successfully achieved whatsoever, not even close. However, I have got into it again a bit recently, during November and December, so should be pretty easy to crank this one up again pronto, not least because I have 4.5 bags of carrots in my fridge as I type this. 3. This was a two-parter. […]

Nick Dare: Joint (Ad)ventures in Business and Life

Today’s blog guest is Nick Dare who I appreciate in many ways. His sense of humour has given rise to some of the best nicknames I’ve received in 2014 with, I hope, many more to come in 2015; Nick is the master of the nickname. He’s also one of the very few men brave enough to venture inside my Club 100, one of two currently. I love working with men in a mostly female environment. What does that say about them? Only good things to my eyes (ears?). Nick is nothing if not an adventurer, as you will read today… […]

2015 Miracles

Would you like to create some 2015 miracles? I am inspired to put together a special group to start on 1st January and work through Marianne Williamson’s A Year of Miracles: Daily Devotions and Reflections. Here’s how it works: Get your hands on a copy of the book or kindle ebook – fast! Be ready to start on Thursday 1st January ideally, although I think it would be possible to catch up in January but not beyond. You’d just have to double your efforts in the first few days so as to be on the same page as the rest […]

Kate Beavis: National Vintage Wedding Fair

Today’s guest blogger is Kate Beavis, whose love of all things vintage has spawned several parts to her business. Here she tells the story in her own words: Hello, my name is Kate Beavis and I run a number of businesses all linked to vintage.

Alice Sheridan: Artist, Painter and Printmaker

Today’s contributor, in her own words, is Alice Sheridan. I am slightly envious of Alice, it must be said, because as well as being fantastic in pictures, she’s also pretty wonderful in words, as you will see here and on her blog. My name is Alice Sheridan and I am an artist: painter and printmaker. I am also a busy mum with all that entails – as the children grow older (13 and 9) life just seems to get more complex with even longer days. My business is not really a business. In fact it was the biggest hurdle I […]

So, Here It Is, Merry Christmas, Everybody’s Having Fun

It’s Christmas Day. It’s sunny. I’ve had a nice lie-in, done some reading (desperately trying to finish the book club book before I allow myself some leisure reading) and the washing up. Now I’m blogging before getting ready to go to my brother’s house for lunch in Surrey, but I’m not due until 2 p.m. so I have time to write the 359th consecutive blog posts of 2014 with only 6 more to go. Last Christmas Day there was no electricity at my brother’s house, so we took our Christmas to his father-in-law’s house, starting with an early morning turkey […]

Today is the first in a series of blogs over the next few days showcasing my current clients in Club 100.

I am also an NLP Practitioner, singer, actor, chocolate lover and owner of / am owned by a miniature dachshund called Heinz! I started my business in 2014… before I felt ready. I was working for the local Arts Centre (where I had been working for 9.5 years – yikes!) I had felt a calling […]
