Here I share some of my advice and top tips - videos I have made for career and confidence coaching tips and hints.  Books I've been inspired by and podcasts I've enjoyed.  I hope that you find some inspiration within these too.

Books

  • Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness - Richard H Thaler & Cass R Sunstein.

Fascinating book about nudge theory and how to help ourselves edge toward better choices. This book        and its principles can be used for work, in your personal life and with your children.

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain

If you are introverted, are a parent to one, manage an introvert, or work in a team with an introvert, read      this book. AS an extrovert, I made it my mission to understand the plight of an introvert, make them feel part of the conversation - they are not shy. The way they enjoy things is different to me. Really changed my approach. 

  • Black Box Thinking - Matthew Syed

This is a book about how to fail.  With some of the most successful companies and people within it, it really shows you that if Dyson can fail 1000's of times before he gets it right, then perhaps I can just keep pushing forward. A failure is one step closer to success. 

  • Time and How To Spend It - The 7 Rules for Richer Happier Days 

This book changed my life. After hearing about it on the radio and feeling unfulfilled, surrounded by stuff, I read this book and changed the way I live - not drastically, but I put emphasis and joy in experiences and made them gifts, to other people and to my family. Trying to create a 'story' wherever I went.
