You’ll never know…

with No Comments

I had the most amazing experience at the 2017 New Zealand Social Media Conference. So very honoured to be a guest speaker, I wanted to share something with you.         You never know who will be inspired by your story.   I found this out again, as I spoke to a room of strangers. I chose to be venerable, to walk the talk and set the example that we need to be authentic online. We need to … Read More

Inspiration at midnight

with No Comments

  || POEM ||  Time stood still. Fixated on the tiniest fairy of them all. The gentleness of a lady bird, upon her brother’s strong finger. Silent communication between shiny wings and the innocent sparkle of a two-year-olds eye. Hypnotised by the moment. Fairy tales on earth. Where imagination meets reality. – By Philippa Mannagh

What they don’t tell you | PART ONE |

  || BUSINESS BLOG ||   No one talks about this stuff, so I am going to. The stuff they don’t tell you when going into business or parenthood for that matter. The stuff you find out along the way and a mentor may say down the track, “Yes, I have been there before.” The stuff that makes us stronger yet breaks our backs. The stuff that brings us to self-doubt tears one day yet shout to the heavens the … Read More

Do you look down?

with No Comments

Last weekend, I accompanied my son on his first Cub outing. It was a trek up Mount Manaia to have lunch and enjoy the views. We rode out the, “are we there yet’s” and the not so quiet moans and groans until we made it to the top – a proud moment for this Mum! It took Master Eight a while to look at the view. For some time, I thought we were destined to check out the bushes and … Read More

Five basic hints to rock your next speaking event

with No Comments

We all feel it, that nervous ball in the pit of our stomach before we stand at the front of the room and share our expertise. My coach told me, it shows we care. Think about it as excitement and these feelings are actually very similar. Usually, once we have introduced ourselves, we are well on our way and can relax into our notes, sometimes it still isn’t easy and yes, it does take practice. Practice, practice, practice…  Here is … Read More

My poor eyes…

with No Comments

When I heard that there were new lenses out that cared for eyes from all this blue screen damage we are exposed to today, I couldn’t grasp how amazing this must be… until I have been living in them for a couple of months and now I couldn’t do without them. There is a new product called Eyezen; I bought them from Lowes and Partners Optometrists in Whangarei. They are designed for people who spend a lot of their time … Read More

// Hush Review // Heaven in Hikurangi?

As an entrepreneur or busy working anyone… do you find it hard to switch off and give yourself the down time you need just to keep going? Also, as a mother in business, I often feel guilty and class any ‘me’ time in the selfish box for the underserved. So when I had the chance to be spoilt for a morning… not just an hour, a morning, the suggestion was enough of a push to get me there. Hikuragi I … Read More

How anxiety attacks shaped my business

with No Comments

There was a time when speaking in public would have made me run for the hills, hide under a bed or be left shivering in my boots unable to string a sentence together. Anxiety attacks ruled my life for a while and the thought of people around me left me in a spin. I could bearly go to the supermarket with fainting and running back to the car. I would shop at night, under the blanket of the night sky … Read More

Weekends are made of…

with No Comments

I believe this blog is important. Although we are all so busy being busy it’s imperative to get the message drilled into us that life is about living too and not missing the moments. A couple of years ago, I worked the weekends. I also worked until the wee hours of the night shut my eyes by themselves. I was launching new business services and there is sometimes a period that you need to give this 200% however, it needs … Read More
