Celebrate Problems

Celebrate your Problems!

Many years ago when I first got introduced to the world of personal development I trained with a mentor who used to say: “Successful people don’t stop having problems.  They just have better quality problems” What he meant was that life and business are never going to be easy and smooth and we are always going to have problems.   But…

Letting go

Why I’ve been “letting go” instead of setting goals

Happy Lunar New Year (aka Chinese new year)! Traditionally this is a time of “cleansing” to sweep away any evil spirits lurking from the previous year so this is a really great week for letting go of anything that no longer serves you so you can flourish in 2017. And this is exactly what I’ve been doing. Instead of my…

Selling from the Heart Live

Celebrating 5 years in business (and how I did it)

The photo below is of me with my gorgeous community of heart-centred business owners at  Selling from the Heart Live last week. It was an important occasion because it took place on Saturday 26th November 2016. Almost exactly 5 years to the day since, on Sunday 27th November 2011, in a small,  unglamorous training venue tucked away in the heart…


Watch my first attempt at Facebook Live!

This weekend I finally got over some resistance that had been hanging around for a little while and I recorded my first ever Facebook Live video! Now I can’t take the full credit for getting across that resitance hump. You know, the hesitancy about being that visible, the fear of how I might come across, the not quite being sure…

shiny object syndrome

“Shiny Object Season” is here again

This is an adaptation of a post that I wrote just over a year ago – it feels like it’s “that time of year” again so I’m reposting it as it could act as a timely reminder for you. The post last year was prompted by one of my clients posting in our Facebook group that she hadn’t had time…

Today’s Imperfect Action

This morning I caught myself procrastinating over taking action on something. And I’ve been doing it for quite some time – since the beginning of January in fact. When I realised what I was doing it inspired me to create this quick video for you (4 minutes). In case you’ve been doing the same thing. By the way, it’s imperfect…

100 days of rejection

100 Days of Rejection

How often do you allow your business or your dreams to be held back because of fear of rejection? How many of your clients simply don’t get the help they really need because you are scared they might say “No” – and so you don’t step up to fully serve them? If this sounds like you then you will LOVE…

Sales Mastery

Is it time to Commit to Sales Mastery?

Now, those of you who know me well will know that I do have my “soapbox” moments!  And there’s something in particular that I find myself getting into a bit of a rant about every now and again. I wrote about it last year and it certainly triggered quite a response. It’s an important message and it still bugs me…
