Lessons from my two year old: I now run my life and business as my daughter taught me

Lessons from my two year old: I now run my life and business as my daughter taught me

My drive to understand motherhood was born simultaneously with my daughter. Did I ever think I would love being a Mum? Not even in a-day dream. Did I stress about slowing down a high fly career? Extremely The arrival of my daughter has forever changed my world and the lens I see the world through. Before I became a Mum, I never felt my heart break into millions pieces when I couldn’t stop a cry, ...

The Lone Ranger

I’m a lone parent (although I like to think of myself more like The Lone Ranger – it’s cooler,) and as much as I like to think I cope well, it’s a pretty tough job.  Case in point. My eldest son is 19 and studying away from home at Uni.  As incredibly proud of him as I am, I am a nervous wreck half the time.  He regales me with stories of what he gets up to on a night out [...]
