“Do something you really love,” she said of her best career advice. “It doesn’t matter what it is: being a mom, teaching, whatever you love. If you love it, it’ll get you through the hard times, and if you don’t, it’s not authentic or real anyway. When you love something, every day goes by in […]

In her memoir, Becoming (2018), Michele Obama reminds us that the question we often ask children “What do you want to be when you grow up?” can be limiting. She writes: “As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.” (Preface). As a woman who has had […]

Fear of Public Speaking
April 23, 2019 at 6:10 pm
Think of this scenario. You have a presentation. You know your audience, you know the subject matter. Everything is prepared and you even had some friend take a look at it. Everything is great. But is it? You also have a fear of public speaking. When the time comes, you are anxious. You feel a knot […]
Set your own boundaries!
April 15, 2019 at 3:25 pm
Sometimes I hear people say, “they know how to push all my buttons”. In these cases, I have two questions. 1) How do they know which buttons to push? 2) And, why do they do it? Actually, people do not really don’t know which buttons to push. They behave like that because they are just testing your […]
Keys to Success
April 8, 2019 at 11:14 am
Over the years, I’ve watched several pretty good webinars on “the Keys to success”, “the steps to success”, all held by some amazing speakers. They always make me wonder why some of us become very successful while others don’t make it. All of us, without exception, and regardless of our background, started off the same […]
Is fear holding you back from a career change?
April 5, 2019 at 6:23 pm
Being the #doworkyoulove activist I consider myself to be 🙂 , I give talks whenever possible to encourage people who are unhappy in their jobs to consider other options for earning a living.  Career change is a broad topic to speak about, as the circumstances will be different for each individual. In order to keep […]

March 6, 2019 at 7:48 pm
Confidence, resonance and shellac – how to communicate like a pro   My great passion is communication (after George Clooney obviously), and I’m always fascinated to see good and bad practice outside the corporate world which I can bring to the training room.   This month, I’ve come across great examples in unexpected places: on […]
Are you making the most from your money?… and what about tax?
March 5, 2019 at 2:57 pm
As a financial adviser, I always talk to my clients about tax, and to be honest, I often see their eyes glaze over. I know it’s not the sexiest topic in the world…….but this stuff really is important. If you are someone who wants to get the most from your money, it certainly pays to […]
Making career change a top priority
March 5, 2019 at 12:06 pm
It was during my coaching training, when my coach asked me “When will you stop giving all your energy to somebody else’s dream instead of yours?” that it clicked.  I had been dreaming about a career change for years, but I had not made it a priority in my life. Actually, I had!  I had […]
TRUST
January 22, 2019 at 7:10 pm
I like to trust! It is a conscious choice I have made. I have decided I’d rather trust than be skeptical and overdo thinking. Taking inspiration from the bestselling spiritual author Gabrielle Bernstein, I see trust as leaning toward love instead of fear. The word trust has come more into my daily language in the past few […]
The greatest gift you can give this Christmas – a question!
December 18, 2018 at 7:59 pm
Last week I was with a group of 11 year olds in a ‘Communication Skills for Life’ workshop. We were focusing on a technique we call ‘Doing a Hairy Granny’. It’s a simple three part structure to empower children to have better conversations with adults (hairy or not) in response to those killer questions such […]
