Enjoying life is just as important as success. 

Why do I say that? 

Because through truly living we redefine ourselves and our goals and find out what really matters. I cover this subject so often with business owners who have lost their way, or individuals in employment who are fed up of the daily grind who want to start something new for themselves. Indeed in my VISION series of workshops we look at the business ...

Keeping on track; Juggling priorities

Whether we like it or not we have demands on our time. whether it’s children, a pending marriage, divorce, bereavement, moving house or caring for elderly family. We might experience ill health, going on holiday, celebrating christmas, and the challenges of childcare.

Let It Go

One of the biggest lessons I have learned this month has been that of ‘Letting go’. Ironically with Frozen 2 out now, in our cinemas, it is a lesson not just for our children; we too have to be reminded to ‘let-go’ as adults.

The idea starts to gain momentum, world domination seems possible, ultimate wealth beckons and the idea starts to consume you day and night.

BREXIT or Drought?

So Why have I entitled this article BREXIT or drought? You may ask!

With the increasing focus on the effects of Brexit we must not confuse the increasing food prices JUST on Brexit; despite the inevitable increases due to import tax prices are set to rise not because of Brexit but despite BREXIT due to the Summer drought.

This year saw the driest June on record comparable with 1976 with Southern England having just six per cent of the expected rainfall and ...
