Most women I know want to lose weight and be able to keep it off. This is the easy part. The hard part is HOW. And beyond weight-loss, pursuing a healthy lifestyle is key to successful careers and businesses.
Word has it that we grow by the places we visit, the books we read and the people we visit. So today I thought it would be great to interview a woman I hold in high esteem and I'm honored to call a friend. Shaila and I met about 6years ago, and even though I've seen her only a few times, the times that we've spoken I've left feeling inspired and encouraged.
The other day I was working at my computer and I was determined to get work done. I was researching a topic I was going to be speaking on, so I started opening a site to read up a bit. But before I knew it I had 7 or 8 tabs open, and notifications from everywhere were pouring in :-) I was no longer researching, but watching some inspiring videos, looking up some recipes and doing a tutorial for something...
One of my goals coming into 2017 was that my website would be revamped to reflect where my business is going. I usually DIY, but as you can see, it's still the same old one :-) I was not pleased with this situation as I had envisioned myself pumping out content, and just starting the year 'right'. Until I realized something, such thinking would only make me more frustrated and stuck, so I stopped thinking that way.
Instead, want to discuss 2 thoughts today.
Dreams don't expire, unless you are dead.
We don't get to clarity alone.
You have a full-time job but on the side you have a small business catering for events on the weekend. You get up one morning, get ready for work and in the process you grab your phone to check your email. On the summary you see a new email from an unknown sender:
URGENT: COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT NOTICE, YOU HAVE 14 DAYS TO PAY P20 000
It was around 7:45pm and apart from restaurants, businesses were closed
This was in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.
We had just finished dinner and were on our way to the car.
I looked across the road and the bright and gallery-like display of the office was screaming my name.
I went with the intention to look through the window because I didn't think anyone would be there.
I quickly crossed the road much my husband's disdain and marched up to the building.
