  • Got some career challenges?

    Are you revisiting your life purpose and examining what you want from your career? Perhaps you are facing redundancy and are looking for positive options for the future. The good news is that it is never too late to start again. With effective help, you can make those important decisions which can turn your life around.

  • Focus, confidence and clarity is not too much to ask for. When the world around us is constantly changing, there is a need for some certainty. We may not know the exact path, but understanding our options is a step in the right direction. 

    Perhaps self-employment beckons. This is a great opportunity, especially when you have relevant expertise to back you up. Getting started might be where you need a bit of help – doing your research, developing your networks and putting your strategy in place.

  • Life is filled with trade-offs ... we have more choice, more guaranteed change, more options for 'doing it out way' and less predictability than ever before in history. The trade-offs of today are clear - the landscape is shifting so dramatically that we are able to craft our journey in just the way we choose to; the downside is that endless choices don't generate clarity about what it is we want at any point along the way.

    I read this in an article in the paper this morning as I was balancing eggs, coffee and reading material on a small café table. It was attributed to Seth Gordon and as things are inclined to do on a Saturday morning, it jumped up and hit me between the eyes.  I often think I might run away. When I did a quick online search to verify the quote, there were many references to Seth and his
