Do more of what you love
Helping passionate business owners do more of what they love
You need to know what you’re doing before someone else can. Start now capturing what it is you do.
How I turn my lists into plans – I’m not here to sell list writing to you, I want you to consider how you can use list making as a pathway to more powerful project and business management solutions.

Is old school better?
It’s so tempting to use handouts and slides when you are presenting.
It’s a beauty of a safety-net when you’re not feeling so confident or struggling to communicate complex information.
But arguably it’s distracting for both you and your attendees.
You find yourself struggling to push through the content (that you happily wrote on a slide the night before).
But when the questions start flowing, and the clock keeps ticking, you soon find old ‘friend’ panic at your throat.

Assets = Liabilities + Equity
Accountants love things to balance.
We have an eye for detail and will spend hours getting the numbers right.

Over on instagram I talk about how my beloved “asset” Stanley helps me keep balance in the everyday and in the big picture of my life.
