So you want to know what does work? 5 ways to get ahead.

  Alright so last week I wrote to you guys about what drove me crazy about the new year! - All of these confusing messages coming from so many different places which were about 'what you have to do in order to make 2016 a success' or 'what you must do to live a better life' - did you notice it too? Wasn't it all a bit much? its totally why I chose to take the first work week of 2016  as a learning week. I spent time, quietly working my way through both a really bad cold and the courses that I'm currently enrolled upon to make sure that I personally felt good about the direction that I was taking for the New Year. But I also spent it ignoring everyone else. Ok not everyone, but all of these adverts and messages that told me I... read more...

Creating a Mindful Future – a freebie!

At this time of year we're all thinking about the same few things - firstly, how and when we can find downtime to relax and secondly, how we can plan and improve things for a prosperous new year.So I've created a little freebie mini-planner for you to assist with the forward planning part! On the road of running a creative business we often come up against road blocks. Things that stand in our way as we juggle life and business and that often go un-addressed. These can take a few forms - either in being societal pressures or 'norms' - of which we need to question whether they are 'right' or fitting for our own personal mindset or belief system and way of working. These can also often take form in our own personal set of... read more...

Breaking The Acceptance Story Cycle. The secrets to growing your business, improving your lifestyle and working with purpose.

All too often we get caught up in the cycle. The cycle of being busy, of juggling our business, our family, our admin, our dreams, our social life, our should be doing, could be doing's and importantly also our worries and thoughts. And its SO easy to get caught up in that - to get stuck right in the middle and lose sight of where it is we were supposed to be going or even embracing living right now because we're just doing our darn best to get through it all today. The trouble is that we tell ourselves that this is how it has to be, if we're going to make our businesses work, we HAVE to push through this because this is the ONLY way to grow and we accept that story (one thats been taught to us all of our lives by society)... read more...

The problem with perfection and how to use it to combat fear

Have you ever felt a fear big enough that it put you in a state of not being able to do anything about it? Of not even committing to put pen to paper to write that list, or that goal, or that first sentence about yourself or your business for either fear of being judged, or fear of your fear itself becoming a reality and just too scary for comfort? I have. It's why it took me so very long to begin writing 'Creative Foundations' - its what froze me from moving my business forward faster than I have. It's what put the fear of God in me about going to University after A-levels (I went at 27 years old!) that whole thing about committing to a path that ultimately might change things for the better, might make me or my future... read more...

Why I won’t be working the same way I did before I got married.

Ok hands up here, I'm finding it a little hard to get back into the swing of things work wise but I also have to admit I don't intend on working the way I did before we got married. The first half of this year - and the most part of last year, was just so crazy. My husband (squee!) and I worked our socks off to earn the money to have the wedding that we had our hearts set on and giving our friends and family a good time, we pushed aside time for ourselves, for each other and for any outings or breaks away. We worked evenings, weekends and took on any extra work we could find and four weeks ago we had the most incredible wedding day. We were also so very fortunate (and super grateful) to have had some assistance in being able to go on... read more...

Time Management FREE Printables!

Ok so hands up who's totally and completely organised out there? I for one cannot raise my hand on this issue. I'm great at organising things, yet without a 'to-do' list or records I fall to pieces.  Hands up anyone out there who has a love for that really satisfying feeling of ticking things off a to-do list? Yes, I've often been known to make additions to my list that I have already done, just so I can get that feeling of having achieved more!  I also find that I rest more peacefully if I have everything out of my mind and written down for the next day the evening before. So, knowing full well that many of you out there often spend nights still beavering away or waking up to add an extra item onto your list for the next day, just as... read more...
