How Do You Do Your 5pm?

I’d been in full on nerd mode all day long. And when I do that, I start feeling so yuck – between the computer and realising I’d been stuck in pretty much the same seated position, with the exception of a food or toilet break, I knew that I really needed to get out of […]

Getting A New Style When You Grow Gray Hair 1

When it came to dealing with hairdressers since growing my hair out gray, I thought I was doing pretty good. After all, I learned early on that a stylist might not necessarily think it’s the right choice and that made me tough. Even if I just got a blow dry, I’d stare down the barrel of […]

Listen To The First Chapter of Be Your Own Change Guru 1

I’m currently in production of the audio version of my first book “Be Your Own Change Guru: The Ultimate Women’s Guide For Thriving At Midlife.” I’ve never done it before so first things first – it’s time for me to walk before I run. While some people get narrators for their books, this is something I’ve […]

My Mother-In-Law Has Alzheimers Part 2

A few podcast episodes ago, my husband Dale and I introduced you to his mother, Leonie. Leonie has Alzheimers and we’re doing a series of podcasts during what seems like a pivotal time, the transition between her independence and full time care. If you haven’t listened to the first podcast, click here. I recommend it […]

Lost Your Confidence? Here’s How To Find It!

I really like watching UFC. If you don’t know what it is, stick with me because it can get a bad wrap. It’s brutal and that I like it so much even surprises me, as I generally lean to hippie stuff like yoga and kirtan music. But for whatever reason, I’m hooked on this extreme […]

Don’t Quit On You!

I can remember the day so clearly. I had just left my old career and was in the early stages of trying to work out what exactly it was that I wanted to do with my life. As a whole it was such a confusing and frustrating time, but this particular day, all of the […]

The Art Of Thriving During Difficult Times

A friend on my FB feed posted a picture of a frozen wave and that was a reminder that while I sit here in warm Sydney, many of you in the Northern Hemisphere have had it up to here with winter. So when I saw on The Change Guru Facebook page that one of our […]


Is It Too Late To Change My Life?

I was trying to think of a new name that we could call the Baby Boomers and the generation that came before it. Maybe “Generation Sold A Pack Of Fear” or “Generation Believe Everything You Hear” because it’s so clear that we were all raised with such limiting beliefs. That we have concepts like it’s […]

A Chat Around The Campfire With My Husband 6

I haven’t been going through midlife alone. Right next to me is my husband Dale who is only a couple weeks older than me. This year we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary and just like how we were pretty much kids when we first met, we’re navigating this latest chapter in our life together. We’re looking […]

About To Be Laid Off – Help!

In this week’s video, I’m answering a question from one of my YouTube subscribers who says that she’s “terrified” about being laid off. She’s been given a three month heads up and while she knows she’s got a lot to be grateful for, she’s afraid of losing it all. Right after questions related to my […]
