Fold, Scrunch or…

  My life turned into a joke at the weekend – literally! We’ve all heard that old gag about the person being in a public toilet cubicle and the person in the next cubicle says “Hello?” And the gag teller replies with ‘Hello’ and starts conversing with the other cubicle dweller only to be talkedContinue reading “Fold, Scrunch or…”

What a Ride!

  One of the things that you don’t expect when you give up the day job is the massive internal, personal changes that start to happen as you start out on your journey working full time in your own business. First there is the good stuff – the massive increase in passion and purpose. It’sContinue reading “What a Ride!”

The Highs and Lows of Comedy Festival Life

I’ve been in Melbourne for the last week, away from my  home city of Adelaide, with friends and colleagues Kate and Kehau performing our show Three Stuffed Mums.  It has been an interesting, enlightening, heartwarming time in many ways – and we still have one week to go. In other ways it has really brought Continue reading “The Highs and Lows of Comedy Festival Life”

Top 3 Emotions of my First Week in Business

 Last week I finished up in my day job. After commencing coaching and NLP studies last year and working part time on my coaching, training and comedy business, I’m putting out my shingle for the business on a full time basis.

Making the World a Better Place One Laugh at a Time

 A conversation with a group of friends on the notion of success in comedy provoked me to write down for the first time my mantra when it comes to comedy. I’ve verbalised it often enough but never written it down before and it has been an interesting exercise. It goes something like this: I measureContinue reading “Making the World a Better Place One Laugh at a Time”

I Close My Eyes and Jump

Goodness gracious what a week! I had always imagined that when days arrive that will change my life, they would be huge and dramatic. Maybe fireworks and heavenly choirs, marching bands and trumpets, a boom or two of thunder and lightning splitting the sky. But what really happened was an unprecedented overwhelming wave of peace,Continue reading “I Close My Eyes and Jump”

The Best is Yet to Come

It has been a while since I’ve blogged again. It has been another time of great change, learning and processing. I’ve begun studies in Coaching and even in just the pre-intake learning, I’m learning so much about myself, about why I do the things I do and how I can take control of them, thatContinue reading “The Best is Yet to Come”

Gratitude – The Law of Attraction’s Rocket Fuel

I have a fabulous friend and mentor, and when we get together our discussions around everything from business to peoples’ potential and metaphysics can really take us to places of new discovery. One such discussion took place a few weeks ago that really gave me food for thought. We came around to the subject of Continue reading “Gratitude – The Law of Attraction’s Rocket Fuel”

A flask of tea and some sweeties

  Easter Monday. The words have been in the back of my mind all day like a reminder that wasn’t quite working. What did they mean? Or to be more exact what did they used to mean? I pushed it to the back of my mind and got on with a pretty busy and productiveContinue reading “A flask of tea and some sweeties”

Still Standing

It would seem that once again life is showing me that it conspires to provide everything needed for progress – whatever you define that progress to be. Since my last post around about the middle of February ( I think) I’ve undergone some pretty massive changes in my life. We had the Three Stuffed MumsContinue reading “Still Standing”
