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

When I was 10 years old I got a set of encyclopedias for Xmas and my brothers and sisters laughed, I couldn’t have been any happier. The following year someone gave me a second-hand typewriter and I hounded my mum for weeks to replace the ribbon so I could actually use the damn thing.

I produced my first book “One of 6” aged 12…and the rest is history.

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 life coaching, adventuring and motivational speaking and hopefully find some useful practical advice which will help you live a bigger more exciting life.

Enjoy.

PS. I love to get comments, likes and shares…it makes me feel like someone is actually out there, and I am not 8 years old again writing important stuff nobody ever reads.

Let me tell you what resistance looks like

Hands up who writes to-do lists? Who plans out their week? Gets super clear on their objectives? Knows 100% what they need to do today...and yet for some bazar reason, they still don't do it? Writing that proposal, going to the gym, making arrangements to see friends...

My most embarrassing moment as an entrepreneur

So 9 years ago I set up a blog all about being a plus-size runner. I was frustrated with the progress I was making, how difficult it was to find running gear to fit AND coming last in races. I did not intend for this blog to become a business, or for me to become a...

Rodney and Delboy have a lot to answer for

It's hardly surprising that growing up in the East End of London as a child during the 80s and 90s I had some quite questionable role models. My TV and film influences for example. Tuning into Eastenders, watching episodes of Minder and The Bill..oh and then later...

A blog a day helps me work rest and play

"If you want to be a writer, you have to write" That was the frustrating phrase my Great Uncle Les would write to me over and over again as I sought our his writing advice over our 10-year relationship as avid pen pals. I had met him at a wedding aged 10, he was one...

What are you saying no to in your business?

Remember when your Mum used to get you to try new foods? And you'd say, "But I don't like it" and she'd say "How do you know...you haven't tried it?" Well, last week I was at my sisters house and she is a foster parent who has a lovely little boy in her care at the...

What is inactivity costing you in your business?

Did you know in the UK physical inactivity costs the NHS around £1 billion per year...furthermore in a 12-year study of more than 300,000 people University of Cambridge researchers suggested that inactivity is actually more of a problem than obesity with about 676,000...

Are you guilty of submarine marketing?

You know what it's like. As a business owner, there are just soooooo many things to do. Sooooo many things to keep on top of. We have to be on 24/7 or at least thats what the social media gurus tell you....content, content, content...churn it out all day every day...

The gangs we belong to

It's taken me all day to feel up to writing this blog. And even now I still feel a little afraid to write it. Last night after a long day with a 121 client, and then supporting 100+ entrepreneurs on my latest online challenge "A grand in your hand" I got my little one...
