Girls just want to have fun!

You look at the pile of clothes in your spare bedroom and despair. This is not what you’d ideally like to be doing on a Saturday afternoon but then it has to get done… Today IS the day when you will tackle it.

But first – a cup of tea because everything starts with replenishing your energy.

What mother stands for

“Morning everyone, I made some cookies last night, I’ll leave them by the kettle, please come and help yourself” she says coming into the office.

She makes sure people take their breaks and is usually the one who does the coffee rounds for everyone in the office. She has never fired anyone in her life, because she always gives people the benefit of the doubt. ‘They will do better next…

You’re in the right place at the right time

You’re getting ready to meet your team. You know there has been a lot of unease going on recently – people have been complaining about how much is going on, and how Betty just doesn’t pull her weight. Sue shared in her one-to-one with you that she doesn’t even know why they’re doing this project, it seems pointless and she doesn’t know how much longer she can even stay…

My client Kate called in for the first session.

So, Joanna, she said, I just really want to know what is the right way to eat. Just tell me what and when and I will be good to go.

What’s your life purpose?

Ever since I was little I was a little different. I liked to play alone, I liked to help around the house, and even then I didn’t have a sweet tooth:)

7 hacks to eating clean on a budget

Clean eating on a budget

I think we can all agree that fresh, homemade, organic food is delicious, and we would happily eat it every day of the week.

 

Yet the bottom line sometimes becomes an issue as it’s no secret that organic, clean eating can be pricy, especially if you have a family to feed.

 

I can tell you, unless you have a whole lot of discretionary income, changing over your way of eating and…

Are you comfortable asking for help?

Asking for help

I see you – you juggle more roles and responsibilities, than you ever thought possible. You think that unless you do something yourself, it won’t be done properly, and that asking for help means you’re weak.

 

You’re a woman with exceptional strength and ability, one who performs all the duties typically associated with several different full time roles, and you do them well.

 

You’re also a tired woman, the one who snoozes on the…
