On International Women’s Day, Let me just say…

On International Women’s Day can I just state this one, particular digital-age observation; There are tons of amazing (and some not so amazing..) blogs, tips, websites and Facey pages out there written and hosted by women.

The Year My Life Broke

I’m sure I am not alone when I think back to all the nervousness and excitement associated with the Y2K bug in that it seems like only five minutes ago. The year 2000 was a massive life shift for me. To put it bluntly, everything really did fall to shit and my life really did seem to break. But, that aside, all life experiences – good or bad – can be useful tools for change and growth (after the fact of course and as long as we don’t let them get the better of us).
