Laughter – the best tonic

By |April 30th, 2011|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Laughter.  Laughing. LOL Sometimes I find myself getting cranky at the silliest of things.  I hear myself as I have said something and realise how pathetic/daft I sound. So I am trying something different to lighten the load.  Particularly the 4pm witching hour load! […]

Career Change Maze

By |April 30th, 2011|Career, Life|0 Comments

Changing career can be like navigating a maze.  You are not sure which direction to take and you feel like you are running out of time. It doesn’t have to be like this.  You can gain control, plan your route and have success.  You just need to allocate some time to…think. […]

There’s a new chick in town.  Everyone is talking about her.  She is smart, organised, has considerable drive and is able to dig deep into her energy pools to get things done.  Impressive hey. Say hello to the Mumpreneur.  Mum’s who mean business.  Incredible females who are able to juggle both motherhood and working…for themselves. […]

Just call me Sergeant Major

“If your attack is going too well, you have walked into an ambush” The signal is given.  The troops gather in the living room.   We have rations – check. Spare uniforms – check. Ammunition and supplies for the day ahead. Having 2 kids under 2 feels like a military operation right now.  I mentioned in another post I am doing a walk every morning.  Before heading out the door I run through so many checks. […]

Say What???

Let’s talk.  And I need you to listen.  Really listen and work out what I am trying to say. Communication is one of the first skills we learn.  Yet it can be the one skill we rarely seem to improve in our adult life? […]

Sshhhh please…for just a minute

I am setting myself a challenge.  If I am able to manage this challenge every day I will be pretty chuffed. After reading the Sunday papers (on Monday night) I was inspired by a feature in the Body & Soul section. To quote the article “Athletes, corporate workers, students and parents can access meditation to develop bullet proof concentration skills and resilience to better manage stress and anxiety”. So as a practicing athlete, part-time worker and student of motherhood I am keen to give meditation another go. […]

Guilty as Charged?

By |April 11th, 2011|Uncategorized|1 Comment

Had a bit of a meltdown over the weekend.  My first true ‘mother guilt’ experience. I have been managing this dance of motherhood pretty well over the last 6 weeks – with the occasional blip but I had a sense of sadness looming towards the end of last week.  I couldn’t put my finger on it until my husband and I had a chat over the weekend. […]

No room for complacency

By |April 8th, 2011|Career|0 Comments

I recently had an article published in emPower magazine.  The brief was to write something that would support those looking for a new job. Something I discuss with all my coaching clients is their ‘plan’.  What are they looking for?  How can they keep focused on the plan? Take a read of the article and let me know what you think. […]
