I wish I had this list a few years back when I was really busy teaching myself how to become an EXPERT at getting in my own way - true story!

The thing is, when you're right in the thick of life, it's so hard to actually spot what is holding you back and where you can just make some small shifts to start moving forward again.  I didn’t even realise I was stuck! I was just getting mega frustrated that I wasn’t in the life I really wanted despite trying all of the things!

The #1 strategy for a good day

An unfortunate truth of life, is that it can’t be perfect all of the time, no matter how hard you try. Whilst we may have control of the internal factors of life, we can’t have the same control over external factors which can have a big impact on how we feel and think.

The good news: We can control our own responses. We can control how we show up every day because remember:

A bad moment doesn’t have to turn into a bad day.

There are steps that we can take every day to help us with the ups and downs…

Striking balance



I'm going to put this out there, every answer is wrong until you find the balance that works for you and anyone else who is an important part of your life.

In the first instance, you need to define what 'balance' means to you, create your own definition. What does it look and feel like? How will your energy levels and clarity of thought be?

In order to take a good h…

5 ways to handle drains with ease

I'm not talking about the plumbing in your home, this is a great way of noticing whether you, or people around you give you that warm, fuzzy feeling, or suck the life from your soul.

You'll know you're experiencing a drain, if you dread picking up the phone to that person because  they always talk about themselves in conversations, without being that interested in what you have to say, they share problems without considering solutions or ways forward, they stay in negativity and cloud you with it…

Doing the RIGHT Stuff for the RIGHT REASON 

If you're anything like me, every week you'll have something that triggers you to suddenly catch yourself and think "whaaaat? Where's the week gone? It can't be this time next week already?!" I noticed this a lot when I first stepped into part time work and had a 'Business Development Wednesday'.

It was actually quite an eye-opener to notice what had or hadn't happened between Wednesday's and how a week can disappear in a flash. Life is busy at the best of times right?! You're juggling work, pl…

Managing your inner critic

I want to share my 3 top tips for effectively handling that inner voice when it's not being kind or helpful.

We all have that voice, we play out the words as if they are coming from our own mouths. It happens so often that most people find themselves listening to it without even realising.  Its the same voice saying you've got this, as well as telling you the story which creates a negative impact.

Pressing Pause

We all lead such busy lives these days. Whether its rushing home from work to pick the kids up, dashing off to the gym, squeezing in extra meetings or generally operating at full throttle - we are all guilty and some more than others. I've noticed this more over the last few months and it was especially apparent when I was involved in facilitating a team away day a couple of weeks ago. Typically, when people are asked to take time out of their day jobs to 'get away' and have a 'team strategy day…

When it feels as though you are sitting of the edge of a precipice about to take a step into something that scares you, that can create range of emotions, perhaps excitement, nervousness or fear. Sometimes the things we fear or dread the most, are the very same things that will provide incredibly rich learning experiences, re-energise us (once achieved), change our mindset, or even change our lives.
