Get a proper job…

  …but I’m a blogger!   I love being a blogger. I write things down and people read it. That is my life and I love it. I am aware that not many people ‘get it’. “What is a blog?” “What do you do?” “Why not just get a proper job?” “I don’t get it?”

UK Indie Lit Fest 2017

A few months ago I met Dawn Singh in a group on Facebook and she asked if I’d like to attend the UK Indie Lit Fest as a guest blogger. Of course I would. A chance to promote myself and meet some like minded authors. If I’m completely honest events such as this scare the

Your friends are not your fans…

I’m going to get straight to the point. Your friends and family are NOT your customers, fans or followers. It seems like the easy option at first and actually sounds like a brilliant idea.

In the beginning there was…

    Here’s a little video I made about how I have always listened to others regarding my own life..and how outrageously stupid that is!     Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing

Keeping up with the Jones’

How often are you comparing yourself to others? Do you look at other people and wish you had their hair, their shoes, their money? Do you tell yourself that their children are progressing far quicker than yours? They’ve lost more weight than you? Do you constantly ask why they have everything? How is it fair

This is only the beginning

  Here it is. My final day of the Bossing It! Academy… I can’t believe it’s been six weeks already. I’m not looking at this as the end though. This is undoubtedly only just the beginning. It’s been six weeks of revelations, realisations and real life awesomeness. Each week I have learnt something new about
