Jul 31 2020What are you holding in your hand? Is it an entrepreneurial concept, a witty invention, a creative idea that could create a new income stream? Maybe it is an unusual, or a unique skill or an in-born talent designed in your DNA; a God-given gift that you know if you could and would release it, it may open new pathways for you.

TURN IT AROUND
The words in my book, Turn It Around, invite you to shift your perceptions in the rapidly changing world in which we live; a world that continually demands more from us in every area of our lives. At times it seems as though the treadmill of life is out of our control and we are the unwilling participants on a fitness device that is going faster than we can walk or run.
We try to create a routine and gain some semblance of order in our lives. The people in our family and friendship circles are the ones we…

Recently I was pondering the content of my first book, Standing Tall in a Falling World, and I am taking the opportunity in this blog to focus on how we can live purposefully in the midst of a pandemic such as Covid-19 that has saturated the world with masks, sanitisers and fear! Who would have thought we would have seen this in our lifetime, right? Yet it is a reality we all need to live through together.
Life experiences at times can leave you feeling confused, fragmented, depressed and directionless. Who would ever have guessed that in a matter of a…

Read the story about “The Chosen Vessel” in my April mailer. There is also a wonderful chance for you to share your personal definition of Leadership with me. I’d love to use those definitions in my next book, and in return, I’d love to send you a free copy of my book, “What in the World are YOU Waiting for?”

A concept of a day without women intrigued me. Without women, no men would be born. Without women, no children would grace the earth. Without women, we would be without a world. Have a happy Women’s Day this March!
An excerpt from Standing Tall in a Falling World
I am sure you have heard the saying, “Who you are speaks so loudly, I cannot hear what you are saying!” That is what looking and being the part without saying a word, is all about. Your personal grooming and image is your personal branding. Who you are has your signature all over you. Be confident in your image, don’t apologise for who you are. It is our individual uniqueness that makes the world such a colourful place.
Wherever you are, go prepared to market yourself before you attempt anything else.
Present yourself well…
I was once told that in life there are no coincidences. Life presents carefully planned and God crafted experiences that present situations or people that are there to impart knowledge, skill and support. For the longest time I never paid much attention to this insight but the older I get, the more I understand it to be true. In August 2015, at a Professional’s Speakers Association’s “Food for thought’ themed Women’s event, I met Angelique Du Toit who touched my heart. She pierced into a place inside of me in a profound and significant way. I found myself wondering, how…
