Increasingly my work is with women who know they have a big message to share.

Sometimes they know what that is and are ready to share, or are already sharing, their inspiration.

Other times it is not yet fully clear and they need inspiration. Sometimes both.

My life over the last decade and a bit has had me travelling and living all over the world, that has brought wonderful insights – whether working with expats or locals.

My work background – training as a chef, working in hotel management, founding and running a successful event management company for 21 years, a disastrous foray into property at the wrong time, doing internet marketing, “discovering”​ coaching/mentoring about 11 years ago, speaking and presenting – have given me knowledge, wisdom and insights that I share and use to help other women create a journey that suits them, their values and their dreams.

Discovering the way, over a decade ago now, to get rid of irritable bowel syndrome and lose excess weight, and to be permanently rid of them to this day, gives me a blueprint to share with women wishing to sustainably lose weight or eat more healthily

Liking to hear and share other peoples stories and being happy on stage, on screen and on air gives me a platform to share the message of so many wonderful (primarily) women making a real difference in the world – whether that world is an intimate and small one or is more global.

Enjoying travel and being something of a global nomad enables me to reach women around the world – not just flying in for a day or two but living in different parts of the world and really getting to know the women there – their issues, their challenges, their successes and joys.

My life is a journey – literally and metaphorically. I’d love to hear about yours. How might we connect to inspire more? To create more joy and connection in the world? To be the change?

I look forward to talking with you to find out how we might do that…do get in touch,

Release Into The Flow and Master Surfing The Success Spiral

The Success Spiral – www.TheSuccessSpiral.com:

Have you ever noticed that some people are in “Flow” as they journey towards Success?

From finances to relationships, opportunities to connections, things seem to come easily and their success seems magical and inevitable.

Rather than moving in a linear straight line predictable 9 to 5 manner.. some people move through their lives with ease and “luck” like dolphins surfing the flow.

Maybe you’ve even experienced that yourself from time to time?

The Success Spiral™ is the key that seemed to underpin them all.

It’s a great read, and a book that is both simple, subtle and powerful.

Thoroughly recommended.

Who Moved My Cheese

An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
Author: Spencer Johnson

Who Moved My Cheese

Who Moved My Cheese

This book helps trigger toughts on parts of life you might not even know you’re thinking of changing. It puts things into perspective and gently speaks to your unconscious mind, guiding you to make the decisions you have already made.

Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice, non-analytical and non-judgmental; they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are “little people”, mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It’s not just sustenance to them; it’s their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they’ve found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods–our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in–although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.

‘One of the most successful business books ever’, Daily Telegraph .’Dr. Johnson has the rare ability to be interesting, provocative and succinct. My admiration is complete.’, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking

From the bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager series comes this guide to help you anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change in your life, thereby achieving success. Johnson delivers his message via a simple parable about creatures living in a maze, looking for cheese to nourish them and keep them happy. The book is split into three sections: in ‘A Gathering’, a group discusses how they currently deal with change; in ‘The Story of Who Moved My Cheese?’ we find the parable itself; and in ‘A Discussion’, the group talks about what the story meant to them and how they mean to use it in the future. There are also fun cheese illustrations bearing key advice: ‘Monitor Change – Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old’. Quick and easy to read. (Kirkus UK)
