I don’t have time for the Backup Parachute!

“There’s Probably NO TIME!” The response people initially had, when I was moving away from the last (huge) chapter of my life, working with my old contractual company was pretty bleak ; “why go completely solo when you could be safer with a little work?” Do a little work on the side, but don’t take the Read more »

I need help, I’m Lost, I’m seriously Fed Up.

That’s the newest problem in the Industry. And that line resonated with me this week, it is exactly how I felt several years ago in the kitchen. “Overload me with information – And I’ll have no choice but to believe you.” Every day we are surrounded by so many voices, bombarding us with information, ideas, Read more »

Do you facilitate change?

The subtle art of what we say and how we say it Can have huge repercussions on how the people around us respond. Clients are especially vulnerable to the way we speak to them, treat them or behave around them, which is why I’m so happy to be seeing more work by the likes of Read more »

I wanna be 7% bodyfat….

When you reached up into the air and plucked out “7%” Did you think that was actually enough? That was a target? Well, It isn’t. Just like when I ask someone “so what’s your goal” in the gym and I get “250 squat” …well that’s a pretty weak goal – have you considered how you Read more »

Calorie Smackdown – An Uneven Playingfield

Sometimes in the nutritional world, there are little fight-bouts, which is, sorta-cool, I prefer discussion bouts because a fight implies there must be a winner and a loser. I think, in the true spirit of education and “FOR SCIENCE!” there should very rarely be a true “winner” and “loser” (practices such as homeopathy aside…) So, Read more »

Swiggity Swooty

You know what’s been annoying me lately?
