#210 – Scary The First Time Round

#210 – Scary The First Time Round

We’re all on a lifelong journey of learning. And I am constantly reminded of that. Last week, as I prepared for my first online course, I felt all sorts of emotions as the sign ups started coming in. What if I give them too much work and overwhelm them? But what if...

#209 – Life Is Better With WiFi?

Life is better with WiFi – I saw this on a kid’s t-shirt and it made me laugh. Then it got me thinking hence the question mark. Is life really better? Ok, we can get technical and say WiFi is how we access the internet but when I saw the T-shirt, I was thinking...

#208 – Wrong Side Of Bed

Do you have days when you get out of the wrong side of the bed?   Your child refuses to put their clothes on? You run late to your first meeting. Yes, occasionally I have days like that. So when that happens the best thing for me to do is to take a deep breath and...

#207 – Zapping Away

I feel like a bit of a dinosaur. I just created my first “zap”. I’ve known about Zapier (1) for quite a while now but hadn’t created any zaps despite knowing that it would help me with efficiency.Zapier is a tool that helps you connect some of your favourite...

Most people do not like seeing food go to waste. I watched a short video on BBC News of how one restaurant was tackling food waste and I started to think how their ways could apply in other businesses.It’s a Canadian restaurant that closes Monday, Tuesday and...

#202 – Overnight Success

Is there such a thing as an overnight success? To be honest, I don’t think there is. It may appear that way but usually, there’s a lot more to it. I thought about this topic as I received an Audible (1) newsletter saying that they were 14 years old. I started using...

#201 – Never Say Never

Have you ever caught yourself saying “I’d never do that”? And then have to swallow your words at some point in the future. I sure have. The most obvious is all the things I said I would never do if I had kids. Years ago, I saw my friend lose it when her kid ran on the...
