One simple way to protect your time & energy.

Pondering what to do with my overgrown-lockdown-mane got me thinking this week… I remembered how, growing up, I always wanted to have long hair, I was never being happy with the way it grew, always wanting it to be something it wasn’t.

Why vision boards don’t work (and how to make one that does)

There’s no denying that vision boards are popular right now, especially as we start a new year and we’re all thinking about goals and plans and The Year Ahead… As someone who’s a believer, I talk about them a lot and I’m finding people typically land in one of two camps… (well, actually three).
