Do you ever struggle with feeling connected in your intimate relationships? Me too! And I know I have written loads about it, but the last 7 months of this building project have been quite tough.

I read an article last week that was all about how to live life like Richard Branson. The premise of the article was that by modelling his behaviours and his psychology, we could improve our performance and the results that we create in the world. I have the greatest respect for Mr. Branson and find more…

I’m going to start this blog with a suggestion. Being honest, this suggestion could apply to all my blogs, but it seems especially relevant here. The suggestion is as follows – when you read this blog, just listen for a feeling. Don’t try and intellectualise the contents. Just see if they resonate with you. If more…

The Key To Leading Others Home

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” — Mahatma Gandhi. I love my daughter, Leila. She is only 4, but oh my goodness can she be a handful. She can be fiery, feisty, stubborn, and frankly, crazy at times. When she throws a tantrum she can get so angry that she more…
