Why do we choose to play small, or sacrifice the achievements we know we’re capable of and choose instant gratification/sabotage in the present moment? You see an opportunity to create the circumstances / life that you’ve craved,… Read the rest

My little motivator

My little motivator
Over the past number of months, my main motivator and driving force has also been my reason to prioritise and therefore take things a little bit easier aswell.  As you may know from my previous blogs, we are happily expecting our first baby next month so being at home full-time and able to schedule work around childcare is one of the many advantages I’m looking forward to being able to capitalise on; however after talking to lots of other women… Read the rest

My first 2 weeks of full-time home business
I’ve received a few messages asking me how I’ve been getting on with the big move to to 100% salary from my home business after finishing work on 30th March, so I thought I’d write a blog to cover a few of the things that have happened in the last fortnight.

How to make your work from home business work!

How to make your work from home business work!
The decision to start a home business can be many things to many different people.  Exciting, terrifying, a big leap, or not so big step depending on your character.  I feel this divides us into two types of people – those who focus on the things they will have to do and feel weighed down by doubt if they could do it or ‘fit it in’ to an already busy schedule, meanwhile, there are those who focus on the things that… Read the rest

Rush hour traffic dread

Rush hour traffic dread
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I need to drive in rush hour traffic tomorrow morning.  I’m taking a family member into the city for an appointment, then going to a meeting with my final marketing client, but as the appointment is first thing it means getting up when I’d usually be sleeping to sit in traffic for an hour and I’m dreading it! I forgot what it was like to dread rush hour and now I… Read the rest

Why I love working from home especially in January
It’s a cold, rainy Friday in January here and I’m enjoying a cosy afternoon working on my laptop with our dogs basking in the heat from the lit fire in front of me.  It wasn’t that long ago when I would have been counting the minutes to 5 O’clock so I could then drive for an hour and half in heavy traffic just to get home to a cold house and wish that one day, I could work from wherever… Read the rest

Busy? Too much to do and not enough time to do it?  Simple answer is that you need a system. If you have a fixed salary, your days will likely be spent working a 40 hour week, so for around 5 months of the year you leave home in the dark to go to work, and arrive home in the dark after work, weekends are spent getting everything washed, re-stocked and ready to start the next week.
