Here are my 39 lessons I’ve learnt for one for each year of my life that I would tell my 18 year old self 21 years ago… 1. Social media is not reality. It is edited, cropped, retouched and paraphrased. Do not compare your life to anything you see there. 2. Embrace your cycle. Do […]

39 Insights just before my 39th Birthday

The Great Shift is here – and with any shift, also comes a challenge- moving away from the old ways of doing things can feel awkward and difficult at times as we are defining a new way of working for future generations. So what is this ‘shift’? A shift in the way we define ‘work’ […]

Was it a mistake? Moving to Australia (and back again!)

I’ve been working on a BIG shift in the way I approach work over the last year (as many people have!)

If I’d followed the common approach to productivity and success, I’d have gone down a hole of punishing myself for being such a procrastinator over the last 2-3 months. I have not really marketed my services… yes I post on here but mainly informational posts sharing what I’m learning. Generally with social media, I teach my clients to do about 25% brand posts, 25% community posts, 25% educational posts and 25% sales posts.
