I’d intended to write this post even before I found this beautiful image to go with it. Safety is an illusion. So is security, certainty and control. Nothing’s under control. No-one can predict the future, not even Warren Buffett as I like to say when we are playing Cashflow. We don’t know what’s coming, any of us. When I was a little girl and we used to watch Miss World on television (now there’s a bygone era, thank God), my Dad used to say after the results were announced “I KNEW it would be her”. But did he say that […]
Do you love to swim? I love the turquoise water, me. Because my parents lived in Malta in the Sixties when I was just a teeny tiny girl, I was always a little water baby from the get go. I love swimming and learned to trust the water at a very early age; in fact, I never remember not trusting it, it’s a fact in my life and it feels like I was born knowing that. No fear was instilled in me. Water is a medium in which I have infinite trust. I know that whilst I must respect the […]
One of the things I like to get into with my clients pretty quickly is how much money you need to make from your small business and how quickly. That way we can make a meaningful plan. So one of the first things I need to know is how much money do you need to make each month to pay your bills in the place in your life where you are right now. This is Goal One. This is quite distinct from how much money you would like to make in the future, that’s another goal for another day. First […]
I’m looking back at my diary for this week just gone and pondering on the lessons I’ve learned for myself and for my clients. Generically, they fall into the category of when is the right time to ask for help and how to best use your business coach/mentor. Getting in touch before you start up in business can seem premature. We are discussing ifs and maybes, possibles and intangibles. But we are able to do some useful planning, brainstorming and visioning. We can get clear on what you want for your business and discuss such things as targets, pricing and […]
Every month I play Rich Dad’s Cashflow 101 game. This game is financially life-changing, there is no other way to describe it. It’s a learning tool which changes the way you behave with money and teaches you how to invest, how to evaluate deals and business opportunities, how to calculate ROI (return on investment) and how to get out of the Rat Race. It’s also emotionally life-changing because, as you start to get more confident with the maths and get that aspect under your belt, you start to notice your emotions where money is concerned too. Cashflow 101 reveals to […]
Throughout January, in the UK, I have watched people struggling to get their accounts stuff together for the 31 January tax return deadline. Spare a thought for your accountant if you have one. What (s)he really doesn’t want is 100% of clients delivering their stuff in January. Imagine that just for a moment, what if you had to do all your work for all your clients in one month of the year? And January at that, perhaps the grimmest of all months. In January last year I had cause to visit my accountant to get his signature on something to do with anti money-laundering regulations […]

I don’t know about you but I’m sick of it now, the snow that is. It was alright a week ago, deep and crisp and even. But its just getting on my wick now and getting in my way, the way of my progress. Its making everything harder. My sympathies are with you if you live in a part of the UK or the world where you are weeks into the snow, not just one week as I am. Snow’s always a bit of a novelty when you are young, or if you’ve not seen it for a while – […]
Do you believe in Magic? I do. It happens all day long every day in my life and the lives of my clients, we are happy and grateful for it, we ask for it, we expect it, we are delighted by it, we intend it, we manifest it and we are all as mad as a box of frogs. Or are we?
