Evict those tenants living rent free today.
Yesterday I went to support some friends at a horse show, they were showing a young horse in hand and the competition was stiff.
They are horse breeders so this was important to their business.
My friend's partner was showing the horse and is relatively new to horses but he has been extremely successful on the few outings that that they have had despite his lack of experience, so I was curious.
I asked him before the class if he got nervous?
He said "no, what is the worst that could happen - we co…
How to make the right next move in an unpredictable market
I Did It And So Can You
2 weeks ago I posted on LinkedIn about how I went to visit my horse Luath who is just starting to be ridden and rode her, which was a big day for us both.
It might seem like not a big deal and I have ridden most of my life but my confidence took a knock a couple of years ago and didn't really recover, I had a lot going on in my life, I had skin cancer which involved 2 big operations on my face and we had a very sick relative, and looking back I realize that I began telling myself a story about …
Leave or stay? Why we should take a moment before joining the "mass resignation" movement
Since Covid began the idea of a mass resignation has grown momentum as people have questioned whether they wished to return to their old lives pre-Covid and for many priorities have changed as we have changed as people.
The market has moved from an employer led market to a candidate led market which means a greater availability of roles and more choice which is all positive when you are considering a move.
However, it is easy to be tempted by change, especially if something is missing in yo…
Fake It Until You Feel It Not Fake It Until You Make It
Have you ever been told to fake it until you make it and thought “I wish it was that easy”?
Maybe you were preparing for an interview, presentation or some other anxiety inducing event when someone suggested it. The truth is, how can we fake it until we make it if we do not know what we should be faking?
For example, take confidence, it is not as simple as just switching on the confidence button and suddenly being more confident, especially in situations that elicit a fight, flight, or freeze …

Recovering after a Bad Interview
As a career coach something that I hear even amongst the most confident and experienced clients is, “I am really bad at interviews”.
Now I am the first to admit that selling ourselves comes easier to some than others but internalising the belief that we are bad at interviews only serves to create a self-fulfilling prophecy and can cause people to feel very stuck in their career.
So, what is the answer? The key is often in what actions we take after a “bad interview”. I advise my clients to ref…
Coming out of the Trance
Go to college, work hard, stay the course, get a job, work harder, earn lots of money and happiness will follow, for some that is the case, but for some it can feel like something is missing. This cookie cutter definition of success can make us feel that anything or anyone that deviates from that path is somehow not enough.
When I was 18, I applied to UCD with no idea of what I wanted from life but my friends were going to university and the fear of being left behind was real. I choose history,…
A Guide to Covid Burnout
Are you feeling exhausted but still feel like you should be doing more?
Do you feel overwhelmed and feel like you are constantly trying to meet demands from home/life work and so you feel deflated? This tiredness can move to stress and from there to emotional exhaustion which causes us to feel stuck and ultimately burnout.
So many people are feeling burnout right now because of the situation that we are stuck in with what can seem like a never-ending lockdown.
Burnout occurs when we have spen…
Is the Timing Right for a Change?
Over the last 6 weeks clients have asked me the same question, is it crazy to think about moving jobs now, should I just be thankful that I have a job or should I follow my heart or gut and take a risk?
The truth is there is no definite answer to that question, this question is a familiar question though and reminds me of recessionary times. What I said to my clients then stands now, there is much that we cannot control in the current climate but we can control how we react to it and that is to…
