I'm a Nosy Old Bag! I am genuinely curious about people, about everyone, about YOU. And I LOVE to ask questions. That's why I'm a coach. Ever since I can remember I've wondered what makes people tick. I'm always asking myself, why do people do they things they do? Why they do 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵? What do … Continue reading I’m a Nosy Old Bag!

No-one could hear her speak …
“She is so quiet, no one can hear her speak.” That one sentence was to change the course of my life. No, it’s not a line from a play I’ve been in, or from a movie script. This was real life.

Consistency is Key
Consistency is key. How do you feel about that? We are constantly bombarded with messages that social media platforms NEED us to be consistent.

How to 10 x Your Visibility in 2023 and Attract Your Dream Clients! (Lightbulb Moments)
It’s a time of reckoning isn’t it? I don’t mean in an apocalyptic way, merely in the beginning-of-the year way. We love to start ‘fresh’, to begin a new diary, turn over a new leaf, set intentions and words of the year and all that. Me too! So I’m looking at spreadsheets (yuck) and tracking … Continue reading How to 10 x Your Visibility in 2023 and Attract Your Dream Clients! (Lightbulb Moments)
