I am a firm believer in the Universe putting things in front of you when you need it the most.
I have begun a journey of personal development in this last couple of weeks because of a part of my life that I am tired of, and I finally realised that it’s my fault and if I’m going to change it, I’ve got to do the work.
I am sure it’s going to take me to some difficult places, but I’m so done with it, I’m ready to go there and just get through it.

I talk too much….aka I’m great at giving and shit at receiving.
I should have cottoned on a long time ago when one of my coffee meetings of a “second cup” origin commented that they felt ‘dumb’ because they forgot their notepad and I paid for the #$%^ing coffee!
I should have also cottoned onto the fact that people know that I have something valuable to share, because of the quantity of coffee meetings I’ve had over the last two years.
Bernadette Jiwa in one document of approximately 250 words summed up how easy it will be for me to turn my life around in my business.
It’s not like I haven’t received all the knowledge and tools so far.
Key things I’ve been taught:
- A good (sales) person will ask six questions to every one of a mediocre (sales) person.
- You were given two ears and one mouth for a reason.
- Do you listen to listen or do you listen to answer?
- Your time is valuable.
- Your IP is valuable.
- There is no value if there is no value.
