We can't be what we can't see. Celebrating Mom <3 <3 <3

Uncategorized Mar 08, 2020

*** Happy International Women's Day everyone ***

You can see four generations of women in this picture - my mom Karin (standing), my late Ouma Marie (right), my late Ouma Lettie (left) and me - blissfully unaware of the adventure ahead! 

Today I am celebrating all the unbelievably amazing women in my life; one in particular: my beautiful mom, Karin.  

Mom was 21 when I was born, but this didn't stop her from carving out a successful career - always working hard to support Dad financially. She did work shorter days - to prioritise being a wife and a mom - and used to jokingly say "what most women do between 8am - 5pm, I have to do between 5pm - 8pm"... :))

Mom and Dad started their Accounting & Tax business 20 years ago, and I often call her the CEO (mostly to wind Dad up) but I have to say, I honestly don't know what he would've done without her. I know Dad will be the first one to acknowledge this. 

The biggest life lessons Mom...

masterclass Feb 18, 2020
 

This is the last of my six short training videos where I tell you a little more about my book, ROAR! How to tame the bully inside and out.

Before I start, I just want to say another massive thank you to everyone who supported my book launch last week – if you missed the news, I am pleased to report that ROAR! reached Amazon #1 bestseller status in the HR & Personnel management category. So yes, it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing people in my network.

And to show how much I appreciate each and every one of you, I’ll be running a free 1hr Spot the Bully masterclass @12pm on Saturday the 22nd of Feb. I will also be doing a 30 minutes Q&A session at the end. This masterclass will help you spot the bully in your life, by looking at the toxic trio – the bully, the victim and the workplace culture. A bully cannot bully without a victim and a toxic culture that allows And I will challenge you to take at three steps – no matter...

People will never forget how you made them feel ..

motivational quote Feb 06, 2020

This is such a great reminder to always be kind .. no matter how you are feeling, what is going on in your life or what has just happened. I bet we have all been on the receiving end of toxic behaviour and have never forgotten that person or how they made us feel. 

When I started to share my story I was chatting with someone I had just met. We had exchanged information about our roles and situations and when I told her I had left a toxic environment and that it had taken me nearly three years to do so. She blatantly asked me why it took me so long to leave ... it wasn't what she said, it was the way she said it that made me feel stupid, insignificant and a complete idiot. 

Following that conversation, I did a lot of soulsearching to figure out exactly why it took me so long to leave. I figured out three key things about my situation that I share in my book. It also taught me about how words can have a massive impact on the way you make someone feel. It is in...

There is so much love!

grateful for you Feb 02, 2020

I am feeling overwhelmed by the AMAZING people I am surrounded by. I had no idea my story would resonate with so many and am realising every day that this is much bigger than little old me ... 

I know how it felt when the box of books arrived and I opened it to hold them in my hands for the very first time .. for me, the word emotional doesn't cut it .. it felt a bit like Xmas all over again! 

So when I started getting messages from people who had received their own copy it filled me with so much joy, I wanted to share a few with you. Too many to include in this blog, so I'll put them on my website, you will find them here >>  PRAISE <<  

In the run-up to my book promotion, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has already purchased a copy. And another big thank you to those who have left a review.

I am so incredibly grateful to have each of you in my life.
