Partnering with a coach – why and why not?

By |March 3rd, 2016|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

Working with a coach is all about possibility. The reality is you know where you are now and you know where you want to be.  The gap – the work that is needed to get there – is where the coaching partnership comes into play.  Consider the coaching relationship as a missing piece of a puzzle – without it you do not get the full picture – you cannot make out the full image.  You cannot complete the story.  And it is frustrating when you lose a bit of a puzzle right!

Move out of your own way!

How To Get Past The Barriers For Success Do you know what your barrier to success looks like? Is it a massive black brick wall, a bright yellow detour sign in the middle of the road, or maybe a don’t walk signal where you can even hear the beeping sound as it ticks closer to showing a green man so you can get moving forward again. Now that I’ve said this, I bet you’ve chosen one and can see it in your mind. And that’s a good place for it, because barriers to success live largely in our mind, created by us. […]

Shuffle the deck – goodbye to old friends

By |July 7th, 2015|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

Do you have a toxic friendship in your life? Our friends are the people we choose to be around because they lift us up, make us laugh, understand our quirky ways, give us honest opinions and lots more good stuff, and we do the same for them. As we grow and our life changes, and our friends go through the same thing, we’ll stick with many of our friends, but some might not have the same fit they once did. In fact, they can become frenemies that simply bringing us down. So what do you do? […]

Competitors – Do Not Obsess, Instead Aim For Success

By |June 10th, 2015|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

Competition for our business is everywhere, or at least it seems like that some days. From new start-ups who look identical to us, through to established businesses that begin offering products so similar to ours, they could be copies. We obsess about them and wonder what they’ll do next. But let me tell you a secret, the key is not to fixate on the competition, but focus ourselves, focus on our success! Here’s how.     […]

Tick Tock – Managing your time and distractions

By |May 13th, 2015|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

How often do you start a task, only to notice an alert pop up on your screen or a colleague calls you, before you realise these interruptions whisk you away from the very thing you had set in your mind to do. I know the thinking, it will just take a minute, I’ll have a quick look, one brief chat and then I’ll get straight back to work – you’re guilty of some of these aren’t you?  Being distracted like this actually takes a lot longer to get your thinking back on track. In fact it’s said to take about 20 minutes to get back in your zone. […]

Going back to work baby!

By |April 10th, 2015|Business, Career|0 Comments

Returning to work after having a baby can bring about a mix of emotions.  Worry.  Excitement. Guilt.  Confusion.  And where did I put my confidence when I went on maternity leave? I enjoyed 2 stints of maternity leave from my previous corporate day job – managing in Sydney.  This was my first baby – a career coaching site launched in 2008 on behalf of Ambition Recruitment Group. Every time I stepped back into the office for a ‘keep in touch day’ there were more new faces, less familiarity and it just felt too damn weird for words walking around your office with a baby in a stroller!

Lights Camera Action! How to EDIT your life movie

By |March 16th, 2015|Business, Career, Life|2 Comments

While enjoying a cheeky weekend away for my 40th I devoured the contents of a book called Shine – written by Sunrise chatter box and energy giver – Sam Armytage.  Aside of being hugely entertaining and honest this book has been a really great reminder of what is important in life – how to scale back and be the best version of you.  Pretty good timing as I hit reset at 40.

Juggling the ‘working-mum’ balls

By |March 4th, 2015|Business, Career|0 Comments

It has been a testing week this week for me.  Any busy working mum would agree that we are constantly juggling balls and occasionally some may slip from our grip. I have had many conversations this week with other working mums and clients who, whilst they love their role as a mum, also need to be earning an income or fulfilling their desire to build a business.  When working for yourself the responsibility can sometimes be overwhelming. Here are three of the balls I have experienced juggling this week – Time, Expertise and being Flexible… […]

Mix it Up – a phrase for 2015

By |January 5th, 2015|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

Nothing quite like a new year to bring on a whole new perspective to your life.  I asked on my instagram and facebook page recently what people’s focus would be in 2015. There were some immediate responses and others wanted to ponder on this for a while. My own was brought about after having had a word for a year previously… […]
