Making space for yourself in the new year

Making space for yourself in the new year

Do you pick a word for the year? Last year, I picked brave, and it helped me to make some really big changes in my work and in my life. If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, you’ll have read all about my 2019 goals…

How much did you earn last month?

How much did you earn last month?

This is adapted from the newsletter I sent out in May, which had the most responses ever. I learned SO much about people’s finances, and I opened up so much in response to their messages. I think it’s really important that we all start opening…

Why I’m focusing on my mailing list in 2019

Why I’m focusing on my mailing list in 2019

Happy new year! Have you set any goals yet? Normally, at this time of year, I’m full on into workbooks and notebooks and big plans for the year ahead. This year, I’ve been trying to piece mine together more slowly. Partly because I’m actually taking…

Sustainable swaps that are easier than you think

Sustainable swaps that are easier than you think

I’m about to get very real here. We’re talking bodily fluids. Blood, sweat and tears (okay, not tears. Poo. But that doesn’t sound as good). Aren’t sustainable swaps for these things kind of…. Gross? Well. You can make your own judgements. But here are the…

It’s mid way through the year. How did we get here already? I wanted to talk a little bit about goal setting, and give an update on my goals for this year. Setting goals is hugely important to me. I tend to generally feel as…

The Motherhood

The Motherhood

On writing morning pages

On writing morning pages

  Ages and ages ago, I tweeted something along the lines of ‘I’d love to be the sort of person who woke up early to meditate every morning or write morning pages, but sleep just means too much to me right now.’ Friends, I am…

Setting intentions for the new year: 7 goals for 2018

Setting intentions for the new year: 7 goals for 2018

Originally, I decided not to set any goals for 2018. I’ve been doing monthly goals for a while now, and that framework works really well for me. I also had a pretty rough November/December, and looking ahead to next year felt like a bit too…

July goal-setting: Time to take a break

July goal-setting: Time to take a break

This month feels way more successful than last month. Even though this blasted 30 day challenge is on there for, I think, the FOURTH MONTH IN A ROW, I have made peace with the fact that I’m not in a place right now to do…
