It's ok to ask for help.

I am at the tail end of what has been quite a mean chest infection. It crept up on me after the fabulous Celebrate Life party (our Less Ordinary annual alternative to the company xmas do!) last Tuesday. I ignored it for a bit and then BAM last Thursday morning, after one too many late nights, it hit me square in my chest. As an asthmatic, this is never fun….

Let's get creative.

Let's get creative.

December is finally here! As are the non-stop xmas carols, bright white lights and red, gold & green decorations EVERYWHERE! Alongside lots and lots and lots of people (even more than usual) splashing through puddles and marching against the wind here in London town.…

Is it time to start The Work?

Is it time to start The Work?

Maybe you can relate to this…

Last week started out so well. And then it got ugly. Pretty fast.

I had super productive Monday! I was up at 6AM, hot yoga, meditation, reading and journaling were all in the bag by 8AM.

Then I was at my desk like a productivity ninja and by lunch my to-do list didn't know what had hit him. A great coaching session with a new client and a drink with my dear neighbour Phil later and I was on cloud nine...

You're invited to an end of year Pitstop!

You're invited to an end of year Pitstop!

As the days get longer and the nights grow colder there’s a truth that makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable – winter is here!

You can ignore this fact if you wish, but the likelihood is that if you carry on wearing summer clothes in this weather (like I did last week*) you’ll find yourself feeling rather cold.

Another truth which might make you feel uneasy is that the end of the year is edging closer and closer, in fact, there are now only 54 days until 2018 arrives! Whoa.

Is it me or does time seem to speed up for the last six months of the year?

What's in your mental health surthrival kit?

As we come to the end of mental health awareness week I am so glad that more open, honest conversations about mental health are happening online. And that more conversations are taking place offline, where they need to to really #endthestigma.

I had a rant on twitter earlier this week about the mental health challenges that exist socially and professionally...

It's time for your 2017 Q1 review!

  It's time for your 2017 Q1 review!

I am great at planning. Always have been. I’m a dreamer and also a goal setter. I have big ideas and like to write them down and make a plan to get focused on how best to make it happen. I love to see an idea turn into something real and tangible, as quickly as possible (building this business is definitely teaching me to slow down though!)...

Today is the perfect day to back on the horse!

Today is the perfect day to back on the horse!

So, last week Wednesday was the day that BBC said they would get back to me if I got onto their Expert Women programme. Remember the cringey video pitch I shared a few weeks ago?

Well they didn't get back to me. I've checked my junk twice...defo nothing there I want to see.

This meant that last week I had a bit of an oh-no-I've-fallen-off-the-horse-again-how-embarrassing moment. AKA I told the internet I'd applied for this opportunity and then I didn't get it. OH GOD...
