10 years on

Valentine’s Day has a different significance to me than the usual one - it’s the day in 2006 that my business PurpleLine Consulting was incorporated as a limited company. So now we’re 10!

It's that time of year

Recently I asked my daughter Zoe what she wanted for Christmas. She screwed up her face like she always does when I ask her something she doesn't want to hear, and said "I don't know, Mum. If I want something I buy it myself."

Ignite your creativity

Recently there was a Colour on the radio feature on Radio 2 - turning the spotlight on visual arts.

I was bemused at first by the idea. How is it possible to explore colour - for which you normally use your eyes, through a medium for which you use your ears? Yet actually you need to be creative to do just that.

Taking responsibility - and an opportunity for you

What is it for you? Your boring job? A relationship that's not working? Your dream that you keep putting off? I'd guarantee that there's (at least) one area of your life that you're not happy with, that you feel stuck in or resistance about tackling.

Choose a word for 2014

For the past 3 years I have chosen a word to guide me for the year. It's an idea I got from Ali Edwards, an inspiring designer, blogger and author I follow.
