    • Wisdom from the Inbox

      I’m a bit of a Chris Brogan fangirl. If you don’t know his work, you should. He’s a genius, although he would never say so himself. A New York Times bestselling author of nine books and counting, he’s a journalist, speaker and strategist, and the CEO of Owner Media Group. He’s an eagle-eyed trend-watcher, and one of only a handful of modern marketing gurus I allow regular access to my email. What I like about Brogan’s approach is that, despite his authority, he doesn’t proselytize. He seeks out useful information and presents an analysis and interpretation of it that is

    • Want the Truth? Look Inside.

      Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things. Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH. Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't

      Headlines from 1970

      Clans have been gathering in the summertime since time began.  These events can be a strange mixture of reconnecting, reminiscing and regret that can sometimes bring on a sort of bewildering vertigo. The vertigo results from being suddenly flung backward in time into one's ungainly 12-year old self, and when the time travel trigger is one of your first true loves, the journey is a cocktail

      Let Happiness Get Your Attention

      What is #everyday happiness? Everyday happiness is a notion and it is also a conversation. The notion is that it is life’s ordinary moments, small victories, and day-to-day joys that provide an infinite source of contentment and delight. That these incidental happenings, moreso than big occasions, epic wins or brass bands trumpeting our achievements, are what sustain us and give us hope and

      “The imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient happy idling, dawdling and puttering.” - Brenda Ueland. I would say that multipreneurs need moodling, too. Moodling is a term coined by writer, Brend Ueland in her book So You Want to Write. In it, she describes the state of moodling as a state necessary in order to truly create. Moodling offers a sort of incubation or 'baking

      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
