All in awe...

All in awe...

Once again I am fashionably late with my newsletter for the first month of a brand new year! But as they say, better late than never and I am sure you all had wonderful things to do at the start of 2018.

I am sure most of us will be setting out goals and making plans for all the things we want to do and achieve this year. One of my missions is to combat the negative and replace it with things and with people by describing them as awesome! Whilst being very aware of the troubles and strives of global affairs, I want to do what I know I can do better and that is to share a little awe whenever and wherever I can.

I came to the conclusion that if we all share and applaud people for the good things they do, we then all do our bit to make happy waves and raise human spirits. They say that a smile is infectious, so let's smile, smile and keep smiling! It will catch on...

Whatever your plans are for 2018... take a leap of faith and be awesome! Don't let you block your way...

I am planning yet another very busy year and even after only a few days in, it is already proving to be so and I am very excited about it. I have also created a new website for myself and I hope you will visit it and share with anyone who may find it useful:

Networking has and will always be important to me and I am delighted to have been invited to be on the board of the Professional Women's Network. 'Women 4 Women' was one of my original slogans on The Rviera Woman but I would go further and say 'People need People' and never be afraid to reach out and ask for help or indeed to offer it!

And now it leaves me to say 'Have a Wonderful and Happy 2018'!

Awesome People in 2017

I have always said that one of the greatest things about what I do is that I have such fun talking about people! I love to meet people and especially those who show passion as human beings in how they live and in what they do. As we start a new year, I just had to reflect and share with you some of the awesome people I met in 2017. Read more
