We can be criticised for just about anything – from the relationship we are in, to the friendships we keep, to the clothes we wear, the colour or style of our hair, the work that we do, for speaking up about something we feel passionate about…the list goes on. Aristotle once said “There is only one way to avoid criticism. Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” I would be inclined to take this a step further and say you will even be criticised for doing nothing. So if we are […]

Solo Episode: How To Keep Criticism From Killing Your Dreams (Episode 72)


Without a doubt, 2021 has been a challenging year for many of us. I am yet to come across anyone who has been left completely unscathed, or without having their life impacted in some way.  However, with adversity there comes opportunity. Some of the greatest businesses we know today (IBM,General Motors, HP, Hyatt, Fedex to name a few), were born during a recession or other tumultuous circumstance.  2021 could be the year that destroyed you, or the year that made you. I don’t know about you, but I am striving for the latter.  There are 3 steps you can take now to crush it in 2022. In this episode, you’ll learn: How to identify and face […]

Solo Episode: How To Win Over Your Boss (Episode 57)

Win Over Boss

Growing up, I suffered from extreme shyness and a real lack of confidence. I know what it feels like to have a voice but to be too afraid to use it for fear of being judged or not being ‘good enough.’ Whether we choose to admit it to ourselves or not, we all have limiting beliefs – that tiny voice in our head that tells us that we can’t do something, and that we shouldn’t dare to try.
