There are so many things we can't do right now, social isolation is tough (particularly for extraverts). But if we focus on what we can't do, we let that cloud our mindset and alter our outlook. It prevents us from realising all the things we still can do. After all, isn't "I don't have time" the biggest complaint in the modern world?! Well, consider that excuse now null and void. We have...

the expectation blame-game
Birthdays have a similar effect on me as New Years Eve. For me, they are these huge "time" reminders telling me that I'm another year older. My mind automatically goes into stocktake mode and wants to review and assess where I've been, where I am now and where I want to go. I am just coming off the back of my 34th Birthday (I actually forgot how old I was turning this year!), and it's... Read More »
your circle of influence
You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully. - Jim Rohn Ponder THAT for a second. You become like them. Who are the biggest presences in your life today? Will you become a better version of yourself, or worse? Is their impact on your life a positive one? Similarly, what is your impact on their life? Your life is fleeting and precious. You have... Read More »
goals + self sabotage
As we approach the end of the year, our minds naturally start to wander ahead - to the exciting fresh blank page that a new year brings. Goal setting ignites the flame that inspires and drives you into the new year. It encompasses all you want to have and experience. BUT, ask yourself this - Are you setting your goals to inspire you to be your best self? OR Are you setting your... Read More »
the power of one
I've shared with you over the past few weeks how my experience in Africa has really shaken me to the core. As I said in last week's blog - growth is a bitch! It's been a crazy ride, and I've felt the full spectrum of human emotion in only a short few weeks. I had the urge to BE more. To give more. To contribute more. I was so inspired by Maria's story - the women who single-handedly... Read More »
how much do you love yourself?
Do you love yourself? Like whole-heartedly, unconditionally LOVE yourself? Where would you place yourself on a scale of 1 - 10? (1 = self loathing, and 10 = complete self love and acceptance.) Most women I speak to would only place themselves between 1 - 5. And that my friends, is no where near good enough. Now when I say love yourself, it’s not in a romantic, lovey-dovey kissing the...

your tribe
I had the pleasure of presenting to an inspiring bunch of women on the weekend. They had put aside a whole day out of their busy lives to give back to themselves, and attend the Winter's Day Retreat. The room was packed full of yoga leggings, journals, raw food and lots of laughing - this was my kinda place. Something really magic happens when you bring a bunch of likeminded women together -...

is happiness selfish?
I have to be real with you, the word happiness hasn't always sat well with me. (You might recall my stance from previous post such as: The Pursuit Of Happiness) But my own personal definition of happiness* is slowly changing. It's moving away from the superficial and frivolous, and merging towards deep fulfilment, peace and joy. (* Notice the power of language, and the meaning that we... Read More »
do you dare to dream?
What's the biggest you've ever allowed yourself to dream? How often do you allow yourself to live in possibility? (beyond what is probable for your life) Today I'm launching my first ever e-Course: Ignite Your SPARK, and to be honest a huge part of me is pinching myself. Because I used to look at other people doing work that I admired, and think 'Oh man, I could never do what they do' or... Read More »
choose love
I'm feeling heavy today. Waking up this morning to the news across the globe of execution, natural devastation and violent riots. It's heavy stuff. It has the power to make me feel powerless, isolated, insignificant and has me asking myself "What the hell is going on in the world?!". . This is why I don't own a TV, and rarely watch the news. It makes me feel anxious, saddened and... Read More »

“Julia’s Workshop at Fed Square allowed me to look at goal setting in a whole new light. I love her personal approach and the way she covers big topics in such an easy to understand and relatable way. The activities Julia lead us through helped me to gain perspective on what I wanted in my life and also how to obtain this. Above all else it was fun, insightful and so very meaningful.”

Bree Elliot

“When I started coaching with Julia I was a little sceptical, but decided that it was worth investing in MYSELF. Boy am I glad that I did! With Julia’s support and encouragement I can honestly say my life has changed. I have a very clear vision for my future, which I never thought I would have. I feel so excited for what’s to come! Julia is amazing, she is a great coach, you can’t help but feel awesome after speaking with her. Thank you for all you have helped me achieve. I look forward to continuing working with you!”
