It's been a good day, despite Day 3 in Ronaville starting with me having to make a complaint. Room service missed me in the breakfast delivery. 10.30 and no menu via text message. Definitely not up to the usual attentive standard. I'd not noticed earlier as I was totally engrossed in my book. The growling … Continue reading A Magic Little Gift
RONA IS VISITING ME AT LAST…UNWELCOME!
It's been over 2 years since our world was turned upside down by COVID-19. Much has happened in the ensuing time, yet a constant has been our careful vigil to keep it at bay.

Leaving Money On The Table?
Bet you've heard this expression a few times! A common disappointment (in business and in life), is when you have every reason to expect a particular result you want, only to find – at the point when you expect to be hearing a ‘yes’ – that you don’t get a result after all. In a … Continue reading Leaving Money On The Table?
Questions are good for your business!
Have you noticed that kids ask questions pretty much non-stop? All the time. Constantly. If you’re a parent, you’ll be very familiar with the Why? Why? Why?

Repeat, repeat – is it a bad thing?
My mother always says, 'Tell me if I've already told you this'. At 84 and blessed to have all her children close by for the first time in many years, it's hard to remember which child has been told what! Mum worries about being seen as a boring old lady if she constantly repeats herself … Continue reading Repeat, repeat – is it a bad thing?
Exercising Your Writing Muscle
Exercising your writing muscle needs to be a habit. Especially if you're aspiring to see yourself in print with a by-line. The writing bureau, one of the business streams for Dragon Sisters, (because all your eggs shouldn't be in one basket!) started quite by chance. "I'm struggling to write about myself" or "I'm no good … Continue reading Exercising Your Writing Muscle
Understanding Your “Why”
Your why is what gives you the momentum to keep moving forward. Understanding your why is not always easy. It can be elusive. There may be layers to work through till your "ah-ha" moment arrives. When it comes to your why your personal and professional lives need to be aligned. No matter whether you are … Continue reading Understanding Your “Why”
A coach or a mentor?
I suspect that each of us can fondly remember our best coaches and mentors. Why? Because they have shaped our lives and influenced the development of our personalities. We may not have recognised that at the time, but it is easy to look back and recollect them in hindsight. But are coaches and mentors the … Continue reading A coach or a mentor?
As we say goodbye to 2020, it's time for me to be taking a moment to put fingers to keyboard and share a little reflection on the year that we are seeing out the door tonight. 2020 has, on the whole, been a good year for our family. We are healthy, all in the same … Continue reading Reflections 2020
