Taking the finger off pause: my 2022 goals

My end-of-year blog is usually my favourite to write. But this one felt different. It's taken me a long time to collect my thoughts, process 2021 and decide how I feel about the coming months. The last year has been really hard for me (and many others, I know). 2020...

Why going on an adventure = a life of success

I’m writing a book (I’ve also already started the next one and, if I'm honest, the one after that as well), juggling a community (which has rocketed in the last year), prepping for online talks and getting ready to launch a new podcast….all while getting used to being...
