If reading was my first love, writing is absolutely my second.

Diaries, Journals, Essays…any excuse to get my thoughts on to paper. When I came into the world of blogging in 2010 I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Hundreds of blogs and 8 books later I still haven’t lost my love for getting my thoughts down for others to read.

In this blog you will find my views on the world, what I am up to in the world of business, travel, adventuring and speaking and hopefully find some useful practical advice which will help you take more inspired action.

How do you get people to do what you want?

Hmmmmm??? That's the thing, it has to be what they want too, right? I remember back in around 2015, I was working as a volunteer manager in the London Borough of Newham one of the most economically deprived and inactive (in terms of civic participation) boroughs in...

Is it inappropriate to talk about money right now?

"Money, Money, Money...must be funny in a rich mans world" "Money makes the world go round, the world go round, the world go round" "Mo money, Mo Problems" No this is not my current soundtrack while on lockdown, I was just thinking about how money, and the topic of...

Are you holding space for others right now?
