  • In our lives, our God is not into coincidences

    How often have you had a thought, a hope, a wouldn’t it be nice, moment and shortly afterwards it comes to pass? Psalm 139:2  (TPT) 2 You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind. I remember many occasions when this has been my […]

  • Are You A Smart Consultant?

    Like many of you reading this article I’ve read dozens of books on how to be a smart business owner and run my consultancy effectively. I read how some of the most successful businesses started in garages or on the kitchen table, so I guess it can’t be that hard! Or can it? If you […]

  • The importance of taking captive every thought

    Taking your thoughts captive simply means gaining control over what you think about yourself and life during this time of pandemic, isolation, remote working. What you allow to invade your thoughts defines how you may be coping with these new ways of living. We are far enough into this time of social isolation now to […]

  • Are you a Confident Woman with Clear Direction?

    Confidence is a learnt behavior. Everyone can be confident. It may be outwardly different as each person is uniquely different, but in essence you can be confident. Somehow over the years women, in particular, see the powerful, centre stage woman as confident and may well be inspired to be her or even feel intimidated by […]

  • As you run your business, remember the world is watching

    How do we as Christian women present ourselves to the world? The world is interested to see if we truly believe and act out what we say. It watches our lives. It wants to test our faith to see if it’s genuine.   Don’t get me wrong. A God honoring consistency in life is not […]

  • After a Big Year, You Deserve A Quiet Moment

    Women and leaders, if you are anything like me, you invest a great deal of time into ensuring everyone is “OK” and settled before you think about yourself. We don’t appreciate we’re working ourselves into complete exhaustion until it’s too late. At this time of year, it is especially important for women to negotiate with […]

  • How Are You Going with Your God Appointed Assignment?

    Never before have there been so many opportunities to network, learn, meet people or find your friendship tribe. As women we are the most connected generation ever, and yet I still hear women saying they lack the confidence to ‘connect’. They feel isolated. They compare themselves to peers and feel inadequate. Maybe I’m approaching this […]

  • The Entrepreneurial Mom Revolution

    The workplace is changing so rapidly that it’s difficult to keep up with it. Fewer jobs. Jobs going offshore. Artificial Intelligence (AI) taking over and so much more. But there is a plus to this changing landscape and that is the number of women choosing to start businesses from their homes. Suddenly the work life […]

  • ‘I am who You say I am’. Why you can build your business

    How often I’ve groaned to myself when speaking at Christian women events when I hear young, Christ empowered women doubting their ability to build their business. Some even share their dreams and passion and qualify their negativity with ‘but I’m not clever enough to do this because………..’. I’ve seen dreams dashed simply because a shared […]

  • Why it’s time for women in leadership to unite

    This rallying cry is not a ‘burn your bra’ stir up trouble rallying cry, but more a ‘let’s stop watching other women in leadership inventing the wheel and share our experiences’. Wherever I connect with women in leadership it is very obvious to me those that have a strong support network around them. They acknowledge […]

  • Why Success Comes When You Do What You Are

    How often as leaders have you heard these comments or observed the parallel behaviors? I can’t do that.I’m not trained to do that.It’s not who I am.It’s just a job for me.I’m not passionate about what I do. There is nothing more frustrating to people than to be asked to do a job they a) […]

  • Kill me – it’s another meeting

    Some meetings should never take place!! When the leader of the meeting has no control over them, they are a waste of time. The most frustrating meetings are when the boss let’s those with the loudest voice have too much time. Even trying to shut them up (politely) just doesn’t work. Then there’s the person […]
