Whether You Think You’re Ahead Or Behind, You’re Right (And Why It Really Doesn’t Matter)

Starting and running your own business can be a sobering experience and push ALL your buttons of ‘not good enough-ness’... “I’m rubbish at managing money” “I hate selling anything” “I don’t know enough about X, who’d listen to me?” “Selling myself? I’d rather gouge my eyes out with a blunt instrument!” “I’m not good at anything business-y. I just want to create and make stuff” People have different ways of dealing with this uncomfortable feeling of not-good-enough-itis… They fake it till they...

Your Online Self

So just what is an online self? The simple answer is that it’s a REpresentation of you, online. Many of us already have an online self, we just don’t realise it and certainly aren’t conscious about creating it. If you’re on Facebook or any other social media platform, you already have one. All of your online activities contribute to you online self, so that means: What you write, what you tweet, and what you post What you share, created by you What you share, created by others What you comment...

Where To Start When You Have No Idea How To Get Started

Rewind to 2006...and I'd just spent 2 years and well over £10,000 re-educating and re-training myself as a personal trainer and holistic health coach, and countless hours setting my own business up, including securing a healthy supply of both personal and corporate clients. Only to realise and admit to myself that I hated the reality of working with clients to help them change their lifestyles in this way 😱 That realisation and subsequent pivot, kicked off one of the most impactful lifestyle...

Are Your Childhood Patterns Hurting Your Career?

Watch the video or read the transcript and then tell me that working on ourselves and our childhood 'stuff' isn't holding us back in our careers and business lives! "...our chances of leading a fulfilled adult life depend overwhelmingly on our knowledge of, and engagement with, the nature of our own childhoods, for it is in this period that the dominant share of our adult identity is moulded and our characteristic expectations and responses set. We will spend some 25,000 hours in the company...

Working on oneself in the ongoing pursuit of personal growth and self development is tough; at times, it's akin to climbing a mountain that appears to have no summit! I’ve experienced and pursued many forms of growth over the years, beginning with various qualifications in fitness and holistic health and more recently regular sessions with a therapist. Plus the biggest container for growth: My relationship with my partner! There are certain lessons I’ve learned that have stayed with me and...

Blind Spots: How To See What You Can’t Yet See

One of the most valuable aspects of working with someone else is their ability to see what you can’t yet (ever) see about yourself – your blind spots. This is true in relationships, or at least the kind of relationship where each of you is open to exploring and challenging your own default behaviours and reactions to grow together, instead of being trapped in a dysfunctional, co-dependent, “I need you, you need me” dynamic where personal growth is a deadly threat to the relationship. A HUGE...

Showing up, Being Seen & Standing Out #2

Showing up I received my first official piece of snail mail with my new name on this week; and my first bank card. While I've unofficially been using this name for a while now, starting to officially change all my identification and documentation feels like an important step in showing up more as 'me' than ever before.  As a blended family, we are going through a tough time right now. We’re working through some really hard issues for one of the children who is having daily tantrums, violent...

Showing up, Being Seen & Standing Out #1

Showing Up For the past 3 years, I’ve not shown up as much as I 'should' have in a professional capacity. I've not been active in any communities, I've not had the bandwidth to stay in touch with many people, and I've shared barely anything on social media. I've been inconsistent, sporadic and flaky. That's NOT the me I'd come to know! My personal life has been firmly in the driving seat - coming out, starting my first lesbian relationship, exploring my adoption and trying to make contact with...
