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.

I am a poet and you didn’t know it

Words. I love them. I always have. Short stories, affirmations, blog posts, full blown books...putting my words down for other people to see them is part of who I am. But even still I have been holding myself back. When I was a teenager I started writing poetry. I did...

Are we all just super lonely?

I often think about the idea of loneliness. I've often found myself feeling like this which is weird. How can you be lonely as a child when you had 5 siblings, or as a teenager when you were popular and had a wide circle of friends and lots of hobbies. Or even now...

Why I pilot

Did I ever tell you about the plus size fitness programme I launched for men a few years ago that was a complete and utter flop? Or do you recall the time I started selling fabric pens on my website so that people could customise their running tops with inspirational...

It’s not simply about looking the part

Do you ever get stressed about what to wear, or worry about how you look when you know all eyes are going to be on you? I know those are kind of stupid questions, because so many women I work with talk about this stuff. I've always felt like this. I have never felt...

What is a life coach? and do you REALLY need one?

I have been coaching people for as long as I can remember. Or have I? In fact maybe I have just been bossing people around, giving my advice (asked for or not) maybe I have been more of a mentor, a confident, a consultant? And maybe none of these titles even matter. I...

3 Reasons you will NEVER be everyone’s cup of tea

Remember when you was a kid and you desperately wanted to be everyones friend? Are you still like that now? Do you crave "being liked" or at the least "not being judged" I have struggled with this over the years. I like to think I don't care what people think of me...

What’s Your Thing? Flowers, Underwear or Things That Buzz?

We all have a thing don't we? Something which we are known for? Something which makes us stand out from all the other coaches, experts, speakers or entrepreneurs? No? Am I talking about a niche? Am I talking about a Gimmick? Am I talking about personal brand stuff?...

How do you get 100 old people dancing?

No this is not the start of a joke? Nor a question asked in a team meeting in a care home? This is the question my boss asked me when I unveiled a crazy plan I had back in 2010 when I came back from an old age pensioners community meeting which hadn't exactly gone to...
