Skip the silly season

 

It is Summer. I’m sure you’ve noticed. In the media, this is also known as the silly season… and in a good many countries this is also referred to as cucumber time 🙂 The idea behind this is that there isn’t much relevant news to cover in the Summer… but hang on… are you sure?

Why Blog?

 

Why blog? Blogging is transformational for me, in many ways. I express this in as many ways as I can. the transformation also lies in transforming seeds into seedlings, seedlings into trees, and trees into blossom, and blossom into fruit.

Paralysing Lack of Confidence

 

What is the paralysing effect of lack of confidence?

Lack of confidence shows up in your life in a myriad of ways. You may never find it hard, complicated, or scary to express your view, your opinion or your expert advice. Yet, when it comes to committing your professional advice to a blog, for the world to see, you may well be struck by paralysis… in the form of lack of confidence. Continue reading

Help, my clients don’t have problems…!

 

Creating happy clients used to cloud my view when it came to problems. I was so focused on helping, offering value, tips, systems and strategies to make blogging a happy experience, that I overlooked the one major, most important common factor… problems. All of my clients had problems. And most of my clients didn’t think their clients had problems…
