10 Reasons Why I Work For Myself

About a year ago I decided to take the plunge and start relying on myself and my own business for money. I had been fortunate enough to have saved a base amount of money from constantly freelancing in the summer and working as much as I could to provide myself with a safety net from…

Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened

Last night I rewatched the WONDERFUL documentary directed by Lonny Price ‘Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened.’ The documentary explores the initial failed broadway run of the Sondheim show ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ which ran for only 16 performances. While that is the ‘headline’ subject of the piece something I had not considered…

Money or Passion?

I recently discovered something extremely interesting to me. I asked myself the question: Why do I work as hard as I do? The answer was simply ‘Passion’ and I wanted to explore this a little today. I have been watching a lot of videos and listening to a podcasts and audiobooks about social media marketing…

Doing Means Doing!

I would say I am constantly doing – but I am always asking myself… am I doing enough? My answer to that is always no. I crave more in life – more ideas, more work, more projects, more published videos… just more! I am always pushing myself further and love to see results. I recently…

It has been a while…

I’m having a good day today and thought it might be time to finally update my blog, which has kind of fallen low on my list of priorities. A lot has been going on recently, all good things but they have ultimately distracted me from some of the things I love doing. Like this! Since…

Happy New Year!

1 year ago today I posted my first blog post! I can’t quite believe what a journey its been for me, looking back through all my blog posts and remembering this time in 2015, its like a different world, a different me. It is 2016… can you believe it? 2015 flew by for me, I…

It’s all about the memories we make…

There are certain memories that never fade. I will never forget my first day at high school, the uncomfortable merging of early teenage hormones into a very foreign environment. I also still remember the first birthday present I bought someone that I was so excited to give because I knew it was just right. (Yes,…

What is time?

There is something to be said for the passing of time. When you think about it in the moment, you cant help but think that life is flying by without mercy. But when you stop, take a second and breath you realise you have all the time in the world. I am a victim of…
