It’s decision time! And as always my alter ego, the adventurous YES girl is yearning to go for it! The other half, the more sensible one, the good girl, the mother, my Germaness is wanting to pull the brakes: “Don’t you dare Christina. Your neighbours/friends/kids/Best Man of All (husband)/aquaintances/ won’t like it, they will be…

Black white

Well, you know how the saying goes: Better late than Never! I feel slightly ashamed that it took so long for me to compile this wonderful list. There is always something else to do, like filming or editing a video, mothering our three boys, hanging out with friends, reading, trying a new recipe…you get the…

Who Your True Customer Is

Hi there, have you ever done an ‘ideal client profile?’ Like the one the experts in the industry are telling us to do? The one where we identify exactly whom we want to help, serve (great word!), inspire, motivate, style, paint, teach etc.? Because ‘if we’re for everybody you’re for nobody?’ Yes? No? If you don’t…

Let me tell you about this crazy little thing called time! It can drive us cuckoo for sure! We all have the same amount, but most of us complain about not having enough. Or we complain that it goes too fast. Or we are worried that our time (to shine, marvel, achieve etc.) will never…

  Do you have a routine? A daily routine? A special morning ritual that sets you up for a great day? Or a night routine before you hit the pillow? Personally, I’m pretty bad with routines. Other than my daily yoga and abdominal workout everything hangs in the air! I play it by ear; whatever…

I recently read a blog post on LinkedIn by a new website designer ‘flogging’ her website services. She named  5 pretty good reasons why we  should hire her to create a state of the art website!  And she hit one of my nerves… One of the reasons is, I don’t have a state of the…

How to Kiss ‘I Can’t Afford It’ Goodbye

Mansion

  It’s soul crushing! It makes me feel inadequate! Non-deserving! Poor! Yes, that’s what it is! Using I can’t afford it makes me feel poor! I don’t know about you, but this is how I feel whenever I use this evil four word sentence! You can call me lots of things. Like tight ass (literally), passionate,…
