I started training to be a coach earlier this year with Erickson Coaching. Rather than giving me an elaborate and complex set of theories by which to undertake coaching, it gave me a very simple, single principle by which to lead all my sessions: the client is okay.

A friend called me the other week asking for advice. He'd reached a point where he was considering leaving his job and wasn't sure what the next step was.

A few months ago I published two blog posts of my recommended podcasts for health, food and nutrition. Since then I have discovered a whole wealth of other 'pods' that I've become hooked on. So I wanted to give you all a little update of my new favourites to add for your listening pleasure.
Do you ever get the feeling the universe is shouting something at you really loudly? Like it just won’t shut up until you accept what it’s telling you? That’s how I feel about this question: What does success mean to you?
I talked last week about how I've been struggling for over a year to define who I am and what I do.
