Be careful what you wish for with maverick spend

Caroline Myss, one of my favourite authors, tells us “each word is a universe”, or perhaps easier to get our head around “words have power”. That is, every word we use has power to help us find a solution, or to keep us firmly stuck in a ground hog day-esque “not this again” cycle. Every […]

Are you making mountains out of molehills?

When I'm working with clients to overcome their challenges to get back on track it's useful to listen to the language they use.

Are you looking for answers or solutions - because your response may make the difference?

I want to explore the impact changing just one word can make with you. Yes one word. One word that has the potential to move us from stuck to unstuck, or from failing to succeeding, or out of control to knowing precisely what to do. The word may change dependant on the circumstances, and will […]
