INSPIRATION | THE CURE FOR COMPARISON

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while and, given the time between receiving the idea and taking action on it, I’m surprised it hung around for so long… …but I guess this one just didn’t want to leave.   I hope the act of reading my story turns out to be...

SUCCESS | MAKE A HABIT OF IT

Most think of success as an outcome, a result, a reward, a win - and it tends to come with a feeling of euphoria, achievement and accomplishment: I did it! I got it! I have it! I made it! The ‘official’ definition of success is described as being an outcome or an end...

GET CURIOUS | HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED?

As a child, do you remember your most favourite teacher?  Do you remember your least favourite teacher?  I certainly do.  When I look back, I realize the key difference between the two was their level of enthusiasm and passion - not only for the subject being taught,...

BEING CREATIVE | IT’S JUST A THOUGHT AWAY

Are you creative?  Am I creative?  Is she creative?  Is he creative?  Is anyone creative? I’m not here to offer a definitive answer as to what being creative means, but what I will do is challenge the viewpoint that the word ‘creative’ only belongs to a select few...

FIND YOUR PURPOSE | THE CLOCK IS TICKING

When I think about my purpose in life, it’s less about what I was put here to do and more about what I want to leave behind.  Thinking of it in this way reminds me: My time on earth is limited - if I want to live a purposeful life and build a purpose-driven business,...

PERFECTION | IS IT TIME TO LET GO?

I have always felt the pressure of perfection - and to be completely blunt - it has never served me well.  Take this blog post, it will start out as a pleasurable experience (as all my writing projects do), but it won’t be long before the perfectionist voice makes an...

CONSISTENCY | KEEP ON KEEPING ON

How long do you give something a try before you decide it’s time to stop, either because it’s not working out how you expected or perhaps because it just feels too hard? You manage to talk yourself out of it with thoughts like: “I’m just not getting any better at...

MIND THE GAP | BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS

For most entrepreneurs (myself included), the gap between who we are and what we do can be so blurred that we no longer see where one ends and the other begins – and that’s OK – as long as we’re enjoying the process. It’s not so much about the gap blurring, as much as...

FAILURE | IT’S NOT ABOUT FALLING

I don’t know about you, but I spent many years living and working in an environment where failing at anything was to be avoided – at all costs. Not surprising when you think about most education systems and work environments, where failing brings about feelings of...

MOTIVATION | WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK?

Motivation is all about energy – an energy that starts from within and is directed towards a particular action. We can feel this energy both physically and emotionally. Motivation can be triggered by an idea or an event that gets us excited or inspired. We can take...

BALANCE | FORGET ABOUT IT

Words can be amazing and inspiring, but they can also be devastating and overwhelming.   We can take a word, create an image around it, and then develop an entire way of thinking about it. Take the word ‘balance’. When we think about our life, we tend to split it up...

PASSION – AN ENTREPRENEURIAL PERSPECTIVE

The word ‘passion’ is used a lot in the personal development space and we’re seeing it used increasingly in the context of creating a business - turning your passion into profit. Passion is described as an intense feeling towards an activity that we invest time and...

ESCAPE – IT’S AN INSIDE JOB

Is it important for you to feel you have control over the decisions you make? Do you want to stop spending your days building someone else’s dream - at the expense of your own? Some of us have a deep-seated desire for freedom and independence, but we continue to work...

AWARENESS – DON’T OVERTHINK IT!

We are creatures of habit. We go through our day carrying out routine tasks, thinking routine thoughts, asking routine questions, and offering up routine answers. We’re thinking on a level that doesn’t take up too much mental energy – we have enough ‘stuff’ to do and...

THE PATH OF CHANGE – WHAT TO PACK FOR THE JOURNEY

When we’re looking to make change in our life – big change – some of us become too afraid to even begin, and unfortunately never do. While others get going, but with very little preparation. These people think if they just start walking perhaps the answers will come...

FORGET THE DESTINATION – WALK THE PATH OF LIFELONG LEARNING

People often think that there is an end point to learning, such as reaching a certain age or rung on the career ladder. It comes from a belief that we’re either too old for our brains to learn something new or that learning something new is no longer necessary. When...

DON’T JUST WISH FOR IT – MAKE IT HAPPEN

Wishing for something to come into our lives is a great place to start because this is where the inspiration comes in. However, the question we must ask ourselves is how much control do we have over making our wish come true? If it’s winning the lottery, then all we...

TAKE THE LEAP AND DARE TO CHANGE

Sometimes change is a choice and other times it is thrust upon us. Regardless of the circumstances, life is all about change - be it small, medium, large, or extra large. There are times in our lives, and perhaps for some that is right now, when we are stood at a...

RESILIENCE – IN THE PURSUIT OF A GREAT IDEA

It feels amazing when we are inspired by an idea and become motivated to put it into action. However, what is it that keeps us going when we start to feel insecure, experience setbacks, get rejected, and lose confidence? Some may slow down, lose energy or just give up...

FOCUS – WHEN YOU CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES

We live in an age where access to information is literally at our fingertips. If you want to know anything about anything, it’s just a keyboard stroke or mouse-click away. There is so much out there telling us what to do, how to do it, when to do it, where to do it,...

CLARITY – THROUGH THE FOG OF SELF DOUBT

I find myself using the word clarity a lot lately. Why is it when we finally get clear on what we want to create in our life, when we finally have that long-term vision, the fog of self-doubt still rolls in. Especially when we’re working on the day-to-day tasks that...

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE COURAGE?

When you think of courage what image comes to mind? I’m sure there are many, but for now let’s imagine a lion - the king of the jungle! Now imagine one particular lion – the lion from ‘The Wizard of Oz’. He was not your typical lion. Not just because he could talk and...

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE CONFIDENCE?

As a business coach who helps women to discover their inner entrepreneur, I believe that the first step along this path is confidence. However, confidence can mean different things to different people. Rather than describe it with a formal definition, consider for a...

ACORNS AND OAK TREES – A METAPHOR FOR BUSINESS

Do you have a seed of an idea for your business, but question your ability to plant it? Or have you planted the seed, but now get frustrated because your business isn’t growing fast enough? This is why the metaphor of acorns and oak trees is so popular in business. It...

THE SWEET SPOT – TO ACTION

Whatever we choose to call it, we all have a desire, an aspiration, a passion, or a dream. Even if we can’t name it, we know it’s there because the want for it is physical – perhaps in our heart or our gut. As a business coach for entrepreneurs, I’m on a quest – in...

LEGACY – OUR FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

What do we want to leave behind? What mark do we want to make in our lives? What impact do we want to have on others? I never really considered these questions in my 30s and they certainly didn’t cross my mind in my 20s. Without giving my age away (too much), I’m now...

STAY IN OUR OWN LANE

The first posting in my blog has been quite an intimidating exercise. What should I write? Will it be inspiring? Will it be good enough? What about all the other blogs out there? Where will mine stack up? As I pondered over what to blog or, indeed, whether to bother...
