In last week’s blog, I mentioned that increasingly I am seeing many examples of people feeling overwhelmed and juggling many different priorities, whilst still seeking to sustain high levels of performance and lead a balanced and happy life.

Increasingly, I see many examples of people feeling overwhelmed, juggling many different priorities, seeking to sustain high levels of performance and lead balanced and happy lives.

Sometimes the biggest limitations we have in life are the ones that we impose on ourselves and have in our own minds. We are all born with unlimited potential but on occasions we simply get in our own way and make life more complicated than it needs to be. There is a great quotation by […]

Something that I really enjoy doing is helping people successfully navigate the move from full time employment into starting and running their own business.

When I start coaching a new client we start with a “getting to know you” session. As part of this process, I ask clients to tell me about themselves. Most people start by telling me what they are not very good at and what they don’t want to experience in life. Interestingly, very few people […]
