Building a personal brand is a necessity in today’s digital age. If you do not have an online presence, not only are you doing yourself a disservice, however you are also doing a disservice to the people who need to hear what you have to say, in the way that only you can say it. I know that putting yourself ‘out there’ can be daunting. I’ve had to do the work to get to a point in my life where I can feel the fear and do it anyway, simply because my purpose in life exceeds the feelings of discomfort, fear and self-doubt. In fact, every single one of us […]

We have been living in very interesting and unusual times. Fear and negativity have certainly infiltrated the thoughts and lives of many. It is only when we silence our thoughts and make a conscious choice to rid our lives of negativity, that we can start to live a more positive life. Despite it all, I would say one of the greatest gifts I have given myself is to live a (mostly) positive life. I choose to focus on all the goodness around me. As Oprah so eloquently says, “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.”  There are a few […]

Solo Episode: Life Update, Personal Development Update and 2021 Planning Session (Episode 30). I always love the freshness that comes with a New Year. It is no secret that 2020 was a demanding, challenging and disruptive year for many of us. We were presented with more challenges than we have previously experienced, and there was a real level of uncertainty in the air. I took some much needed time off over Christmas and New Years to destress, decompress and get organised for 2021. I am so happy that I allowed myself the extra time and space to really be able to think – and to not be in my default […]

And with 2020 now in the rear view mirror, it is time to shift our focus to what can be accomplished in 2021. However, if you have ever set a New Years resolution only for it to fizzle out a few weeks later, you are not alone. A study by The Journal of Clinical Psychology shows […]
