Have you made it yet?

I’ve been meaning to tell you this story for ages. I bumped into an acquaintance. One I hadn’t seen for some months. I barely know her and I could easily have just said ‘Hi’ and got on with my day,…

Here’s what’s standing between you and your goals!

I’ve gotta say, living the life that you want and doing it completely your way is NOT for everyone. Especially if you are going to go full out and without compromise. Very few people have it in them. It’s a…

Do you want it, or not?

Do you want it, or not?

You say you want it, but what are you actually doing to go out and get it? You even know what you have to do, so why aren’t you doing it? You tell yourself you are committed, so why are…

Sack Your Clients

Sack Your Clients

You don’t have to work with someone just because they want to work with you, or because they are offering you money. Yes, more money is good to have but NOT from the wrong sources/people. NO amount of money is worth…

Ruffling Feathers

Ruffling Feathers

I’m a feather ruffler, twisted feather ruffler! So, last week was interesting. I seemed to ruffle some people’s feathers almost every day! And it’s worth a comment because I never usually attract unsolicited criticism but I had a flurry of…

I’m angry

I’m angry

I rarely get angry, but I’m red hot with anger right now! If anyone ever tells you to take it easy, start small, play it safe, appeal to the masses, stay in your place, tell them to GO TO HELL!…

My 3 Day Work Week

My 3 Day Work Week

On Friday I felt the need for some 5 star inspiration. I always seem to think better when surrounded by LUXURY! So I took myself off to a country manor for some business and life brainstorming. Yes, I know new…

Is it too early for a 2015 review?! I don’t want to have to wait to the end of the year! I’m impatient. OK, quick overview. 2015 = Most Awesome. There. I’m so glad to see the new year. I…

Set your money rules. And stick to them!

Set your money rules. And stick to them!

What do you want your money rules to be starting from today? What do you say ‘I wish’ about when it comes to money? I wish my clients would pay me on time. I wish I could charge more. I…

How to always get paid
