I am the most unlikely blogger you could hope to meet. I have never had the slightest desire to blog!
Nor have I ever wanted to write a book or even a short story. The very thought of producing regular content has always filled me with horror. It conjured up memories of school and the big black clouds which used to hover over me and spoil my week (and every waking moment) as the dreaded day for handing in my essays approached.read more
Has it ever occurred to you that we are the goldiggers of modern times?
The only difference is that we do not have to travel to the klondike.
Our hunting ground or rather prospecting ground is now virtual and much larger than the klondike. There are also infinitely more riches to be had for those of us who decide to take up the challenge.read more
I have had 5 children. My eldest son has just turned 40 and my youngest daughter is 14. My children big and small have without a doubt been the single most wonderful thing to happen in my life. When my first husband and I gazed at our newborn son just seconds after he was born, we could not stop repeating: “it’s unbelievable, its incredible” like two broken records. This feeling of astonished awe has never left me. It is still there today when I look at the tall handsome kind gentle man he has grown into. I always feel like pinching myself!read more

I have always hated feeling that much as they might love me, some people see me as somewhat unstructured, a little time challenged or likely to forget. However, there has been a shift ! Even though my nearest and dearest have not yet realized what is happening, I am changing….read more
Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by all the work it takes to launch a blog and create online revenue. I begin to wonder if I have what it takes to make a success of this. When this happens I need to break the negative cycle and do something fun to remind myself why I wanted to start a blog and online business in the first place.
I have always loved reading articles about women entrepreneurs who have created a successful business around a hobby or something they were passionate about.read more
Build your blog and business on generosity.
This concept is something I have carried over from my counselling days. Blogging and counselling are very similar. Your are looking to inspire, help, and educate.
Counselling and blogging are also similar in that in both you are listening for the pain point.
The importance of asking and listening are as important in blogging as in counselling most people just listen for what they need from the other person.read more
Last autumn I happened to be in Paris during Fashion Week. The City was buzzing. The air was electric, and excitement filled the air. Glamorous people rushed around looking busy and important, mere mortals strained to catch a glimpse of someone famous or powerful. But THE BIG SURPRISE was the subtle shift that was taking place. In a world built around Youth and Beauty, in which preconceived ideas are extremely slow to change or evolve, something very unusual was afoot. Although one would assume an industry based on selling eyewatering expensive products would have made it their business to target the people who have enough money to buy these productsread more
