    I thought I would write my last Blog for the year, reflecting on what I have learnt in 2015. I have had amazing mentors and influencers in my life this year. And, I have worked hard on hearing, understanding, and then implementing, what I have learnt. I have definitely pushed myself way out of my comfort zone. I have overcome […]

    I was recently booked for a TV interview in Auckland discussing my book. When my husband Mark heard about it, he said, I could meet you in Queenstown for a few days of skiing after. But no kids! I thought what a fabulous idea, we hadn’t skied in a few years. After my work in Auckland I flew down to Queenstown to meet Mark. […]

    As I was traveling through the US over the last few weeks, I started to think about how big and wonderful this world really is. One day I am in Australia and less than a day later, I am on the other side of the world. I don’t know about you, but I am still amazed by that. It got […]

    I felt compelled to write my Blog this month on Bruce Jenner, who is recently going through a transgender transition into a woman. Today I saw for the first time like everyone else, Caitlyn Jenner, on the front cover of Vanity Fair. It’s still hard to get my head around after following the Kardashians for so many years. When you watch people’s lives […]

    “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu. We’ve all heard about the wicked stepmother in fairytales — poisoning Snow White or making poor Cinderella scrub the floors while the other daughters are treated like princesses. There may be some awful stepmothers out there, but let’s be honest, there are some awful biological mothers as […]

    This year the world lost one of my favourite people – Maya Angelou. She was an inspirational, wise, amazing, thought provoking leader.  I have lived my life by many of her quotes, and poems, and have been inspired by her, to be of service with my life, and do good in the world. This is why I  wrote my book […]
