I am:

  • Straight talking.
  • Funny with a dark sense of humour.
  • A dreamer who doesn’t stop believing there must be more beyond the humdrum and determined to experience it.
  • Excited by how much more I have to learn in life.

My passion is for:

  • Helping people wake up.
  • Helping people increase their confidence to step out of what’s expected and find their way in new areas.
  • To stand for what is Truth.
  • Books. Music.
  • Have the gentle scents of Bali incense sticks waft through my home.

My business helps you:

Get clear about what really matters to you. And then how to make it happen. I’m very action orientated and always have ideas on the “how”.

My biggest challenge is:

Improve my work life balance. Detach more. Remember to take it slow – I try cram in too much (yet – spot the irony – I’m really good at helping others to focus on “less is more”).

I make a difference by:

Having a curious mind – it leads to different conversations. Caring. Following up. Wanting to make a difference. Not giving up when I believe in something. Taking one small action every day. Refusing to believe we must settle for what is expected.

I have lots of ideas about:

  • How stepping out of your comfort zone creates and stretches your perceptions.
  • Tools that can be used for different situations.
  • Stories to be written to inspire others to shift and change.

I’ve learned:

  • You are capable of more than what you think.
  • Just ask – the doors open.
  • Go with what scares you the most – it leads to wonderful growth opportunities.
  • I can’t watch a musical without crying.
  • There is a bigger plan even though you may not understand it at the time.

“But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,
Then it is better for you … that you pass out of love’s threshing-floor, 
into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears” – Kalil Gibran

developing My communication strategy

I’m on a roll! After having so much fun creating exploring brand Me for you, I’ve felt inspired to create a series of Communication Design workbooks. I call it the nutshell series. All of the exercises will focus on supporting your identification and expression of various aspects of your Communication Design.
I see the series this far as:

  1. exploring brand Me – focusing on discovering how you express your identity
  2. developing My communication strategy – focusing on discovering your goals and approaches in any communication project
  3. building My online presence – focusing on discovering how you want to be visible on the web to reach your goals
  4. enhancing My online presence – focusing on discovering where you can be more visible on the web to reach your goals

I’m really having fun creating these for you. I sincerely believe they will help you. I hope you love them as much as I do. My goal with them is to support you in putting ‘your things’ in a nutshell so you can be clear and organized to do your ‘thang. I’ll be back soon with an update on #3 in the series. But for now, I introduce the #2 in the series, developing My communication strategy!

made with love for you,

Finding a Good Mirror

Our Mirrors
Good mirrors matter. It’s important that I see myself as I truly am. It’s good for my heart and for my growth to have an accurate picture of who I am.

So I’m learning to be a wiser shopper when it comes to mirrors. Just any old reflection of me will no longer do. I’m getting serious about the mirrors I choose to use.

Finding the good mirrors, I’ve learned, is easier when I am clear on what a true reflection of me might look like.

Then I can confidently say “in this mirror I look fatter than I am”. Or “in this mirror I feel like too much of a caretaker”. Or “in this mirror I appear less whole than I actually am”. By knowing what I want to see reflected back at me, it’s easier for me to spot the mirror that shows me as “the funny and clever person full of love” that I am.

After all a mirror can only reflect what it knows, what it feels capable of showing, and what it chooses to see. A good mirror it will have no trouble showing me as I truly am, reflecting back the whole of me. While other mirrors, perhaps more cracked, may prefer not to reflect certain things. In their reflection, if I stay conscious, I might find my colour is muddled, or a strand of my hair is missing. In some part of their reflection I am something less than whole.

It makes sense that a mirror that does not feel complete itself can not reflect back completeness in me. It’s own feelings of lack create distorted reflections of others as less-than-whole too.

That’s why it’s important for me to find good mirrors, those who see themselves as complete — they are capable of reflecting the same truth onto me.
