    • Three Powerful Techniques for Creating a Year You'll Love

      Hello 2018! Creating a visual representation of your goals and dreams is a powerful technique to support purposeful action. The representation (or anchor) acts as a strong reinforcement of the energy and intention driving your goals and helps you focus on what is truly important to you as the year unfolds. I've used many different techniques over the years, from creating Vision Boards - simple collages on poster board using words and pictures torn or cut from magazines, or more fluid versions using corkboards and tacks (nice because you can easily add or rearrange as changes occur) -

    • Capturing cultural and social milestones

      A quick Google search of “Father’s Day and social media” results in a long list of the best Father’s Day social media marketing ideas, Father’s Day posts your fans will love, and Twitter and Instagram tips for Father’s Day. It is fair to say that social media feeds on the day will be filled with both organic and paid content to help us celebrate and appreciate fathers and father-figures in a variety of ways. It is sound marketing advice to develop, produce and distribute content that captures cultural or social milestones. It’s not a new strategy. An online peek back at

    • An Equation Where Work Equals Joy

      One of the questions that frequently comes up in coaching sessions is: How do I discover what I am passionate about? My answer is pretty straightforward, and, in true coaching fashion comes as another question: How do you spend your time when no-one is paying you? There's a passion. What usually follows is brainstorming and a little homework before the next session. For

      Of Alleys and Entrepreneurs

      When I was little, one of my favourite places to play was the alleyway behind our house. It was the sixties, and pretty much everybody had an alleyway. (Not a faux-alleyway either, which seems to be a Johnny-come-lately residential planning response to the blight that is sprawl. Oops. Ranting. Note to self: don't be a ranter). The alley is where I learned to ride my bike, played skipping

      Mindful Monday: Meditation Made Easy

      I was reading James Altucher's book Choose Yourself this morning and in it James relays a story about Gandhi where he tells his compatriots that he needs to set aside one hour a day to do meditation. They exclaim, "Oh no, you can't do that! You are too busy, Gandhi!" They were, after all, trying to free a nation. Ghandi replies, "Well, then. I now need to set aside two hours a day to do

      Dancing at the Edge: The Crossroads of Fear and Excitement

      Multipreneurs are much admired. I don't just say this to be smug. People often marvel at how much we get up to and the sheer number of diverse projects on the go at any one time. For us, it's basically just the state of the nation. How it is. The way we live and work. Most multipreneurs I know are usually finishing a project, starting a project and in the middle of a project (or projects) all

      Three Ways To Turn Back Time

      Updated: April 2017 I meet many in midlife who  exclaim, "I wish I could turn back time!", lamenting about lost opportunities or the lack of consciousness they had about the possibilities life would hold. For many self-employed entrepreneurs, our skills were late-blooming ones. We started out in typical nine-to-five jobs on a career track, or with businesses focused on a specific

      Mindful Monday: When Even Your Ideas Have Ideas

      Multipreneurs face a hard truth. It goes like this: we are basically as busy as we want to be. We have ideas. Lots of them. Even our ideas have ideas. While, personally, I dig the idea of being an idea generation machine (see, there's an example of an idea having an idea right there), what I know is that there's a way that we become hostages of these ideas. Our FOMO - or  Fear Of Missing
