Dealing with Anxiety…

As some of you probably know, I’ve been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks since I was a teenager. Sometimes I go ages with nothing and then BAM! there it is again. I know lots of people will think well you’re alright, what’s your problem? etc… but anxiety and panic are not logical things and while most days I’m fine, other days it creeps up on me, sometimes for seemingly no reason at all and it’s very VERY hard toRead more

Do Brave Things…

My thought for the day… It’s been a week of brave things at Hurley HQ, big decisions, bold moves (and B being a real life hero!) The scary things are what help us grow. If there’s one thing we know for sure, its that every good thing for us started with something brave, a big decision, a scary meeting, a bit of a risk, leaving something ‘safe’ behind for what we really want, doing something out of our comfort zone,Read more

A Little Inspiration – Follow Your Dream…

I had to share… I’m grateful every single day that I ‘failed’ at what I chose to do out of practicality, the thing I thought would be secure, pay the bills etc…Read more

Thought for the Day…

As a child / teenager my differences were my biggest weakness, I hated my bright hair that got me teased at school and made me look different to my family & classmates, I hated being the smallest because I got picked on, I hated being a bit odd and different, not liking (or being able to afford!) the ‘cool’ stuff and finding weird stuff funny, because I didn’t fit in, I couldn’t talk about my hopes and dreams because they weren’tRead more

Feeling Proud…

This wasn’t actually something I was going to share on my blog, I posted it on my Facebook page and I’ve had such a huge response to it that I thought I really should share it here, I know some of you aren’t on Facebook but have been with me since the beginning of my journey and this, I think, is a big part of it! (apologies if you are on facebook and have already seen this, I will beRead more

Happy 3 Years! How it all began…

Well, yesterday was the 3rd birthday of my company, although I was doing a few bits before then, dabbling a little bit, it was on the 27th October 2010 that I thought to myself ‘I can actually DO this!’ I stopped job hunting for a nice stable admin job and put my heart and soul into growing my business. You might think ‘so?’ but for me, at that time, that was a huge deal. At the time, I was asRead more
