Keeping Fit The Safe Way

Unfortunately, I fell directly onto the treadmill mat and because it was moving so quickly and I […]

The Importance Of Celebrating Your Progress

23 Apr

Do you take the time to stop and celebrate your progress? I used to think that celebrating progress was a waste of time because the only thing worth celebrating was reaching the ultimate destination.

A Tribute To Adele

19 Mar

Last weekend, I was one of 190,000 lucky Sydney-siders who got to see Adele in concert. I’ve been a huge fan of Adele’s for years – she’s not only a beautiful and authentic soul, she also has a voice that cuts to your core emotionally, especially in her sad love ballads. Adele did a great […]

How To Create A Digital Vision Board

I’ve been a fan of Vision Boards for many years.

The amazing thing about vision boards is that when you revisit […]

Setting Effective Goals for 2017 – Part One

16 Jan

January is a great time for setting goals because marking the start of a New Year provides the inspiration to achieve something bigger and better than last year. As a Personal Empowerment coach, the two major gaps I’ve found in goal setting are: Most people don’t know what they want and therefore they don’t have […]

With Christmas fast approaching, our attention is often focused getting everything done: attending Christmas functions, finalising our Christmas shopping and planning the perfect Christmas meal. It’s a really special time of year – especially for families with young kids – and given the busy nature of the season,  it can be easy to forget that Christmas […]
