First there is the good stuff – the massive increase in passion and purpose. It’sContinue reading “What a Ride!”

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 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.

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”

Trusting the Tao

73 The Tao is always at ease. It overcomes without competing, answers without speaking a word, arrives without being summoned, accomplishes without a plan. Its net covers the whole universe. And though its meshes are wide, it doesn’t let a thing slip through. From Steven Mitchell’s translation of the Tao Te Ching The words aboveContinue reading “Trusting the Tao”

The Pleasure Principle

Hang on – I’ll just go pour my coffee – BRB! Aaah – that’s better. It’s a cup made in the little plunger with a nice blend of bean pulverised in my birthday present from lovely hubby – a coffee grinder. I’d never had one before and its a well used present. I think asContinue reading “The Pleasure Principle”
