How are you staying healthy (and sane) during this January lockdown? Well, welcome to January everyone!  Even though we are over halfway through it, it’s a long month, isn’t it?  How are you all staying sane during what always feels like the toughest month of the year?  2021 comes with its own additional set of [...]

2020 – what a year!

By |2021-01-06T12:57:18+00:00January 6th, 2021|

2020 – what a year! Wow … I was planning to reflect on 2020 during the Christmas and New Year break, but life suddenly got very busy.  From business picking up the week before the break through to arranging Christmas dinner for my parents, son and brother and then working in between times too, my [...]

Keep on smiling!

Keep on smiling! Wow, we are in November already! What a year this has truly been – one that none of us will ever forget, and one that will surely go down in the history books as a time of massive changes. As I write, we are all still embracing ongoing challenges to the way [...]

A Right Royal Career Change

By |2020-01-24T14:13:05+00:00January 24th, 2020|

Whatever your standpoint on the Royals, one thing is for sure, the decision that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have made in relation to their career is a HUGE one! At the time of their announcement to step back from Royal life, I was contacted by BBC Radio Nottingham to discuss the subject on [...]

Achieving Your 2020 Goals!

By |2020-01-24T13:59:19+00:00January 24th, 2020|

One of my passions is delivering talks as I love to share my enthusiasm for life, and enable others to live their lives more fully – happier and healthier ideally! As such, I was invited back to talk to the Federation of Small Businesses (I’d spoken last year at their October conference) at their January [...]

Reflecting on the last 10 years: 2009 – 2019

By |2020-01-06T18:58:13+00:00January 6th, 2020|

Wow – 10 years – I can’t quite believe how much I have done during this time. This is why it is good to review our achievements and realise what we’re capable of doing. There is so much that I want to share, however, I have decided to highlight the key points that sum up [...]

Coaches kicking back – aka be with your tribe!

At the weekend, I met up with 2 fabulous coach friends of mine: Liz Abram and Caroline Gibbs – you can find them on insta @lizabram and @coachingtogether. We met up at the M&S café just on the outskirts of Ashbourne where we commenced the catch up over coffee / tea and, for me, a [...]

Challenging times … and how to face them

By |2019-03-10T19:13:51+00:00March 10th, 2019|

Well, here’s an admission – despite being an upbeat and positive person most of the time, I do, on occasion, still get frustrated and fed up with the challenges that life throws at me. When this happens, I will allow myself – give myself permission, if you like – to have 24-48 hours to wallow in [...]

Meeting the lovely Dr David Hamilton

By |2019-03-04T19:39:20+00:00March 4th, 2019|

What a fabulous man Dr David Hamilton is … swoon. He was brought to my attention a few years ago by a good friend of mine, a fellow coach, who has seen him talk many times in Solihull. She has always raved about his presence and his energy-aligned talks around kindness and health. Over the [...]
