There is such huge pressure for new beginnings in January. Reflecting on the month I've had, it's been more about recalibration, in preparation for new things.
Rather than be frustrated, I'm reminding myself that, ultimately, we can start whenever we like!
For those who are working on starting (or restarting/refreshing/revamping) a business, I'm running a 3-part workshop in London, in collaboration with business coach, Danielle Anderson of Step and Stone. It's titled, 'Stand out from the crowd.'
The sessions will cover: identifying and crafting your unique voice; building an online presence that is in alignment with this and; leveraging the power of social media, with confidence. We want you to be able to market your business in a way that's authentic to you, effective and fun!
You can take one or all three sessions for a comprehensive foundation. Find out more details here.
I'd love for you to join us!

I have a love-hate relationship with routine but I’ve been coming round to appreciating just how much it has to offer me when it comes to time management, increasing productivity and restoring balance. Our problems, routine and I, stem from my aversion to monotony. The irony is that I actually love planning my time and have an obsession with constantly designing new routines. It took some reflection for me to realise that, I was making the meaning of the words “monotony” and “routine” interchangeable (the latter need not result in the former) and that, there is actually some merit in my repeated reviewing and adjusting of routines.
