Power Planner Workshop

Conquer procrastination with my Power Planner workshop. I'm running this workshop because I realise we all need some direction when planning our goals and the steps we need to take to reach them. Maybe you're not even much of a planner, maybe you are but feel a bit lost right now.

Are you minding your own business?

Tunnel vision is the key, my loves. I'm a worrier. I used to worry so much I couldn't sleep, couldn't rest and couldn't relax. I worried about saying the wrong thing, making the wrong impression and shining too bright. All that emotional investment into everyone else was incredibly draining. So, over time I have learned to worry about my damn self. This means putting your needs first. This means honouring your core beliefs. This means establishing boundaries to keep you safe, and walking away from those who continue to disrespect them. Once I'd opted out of people-pleasing, I then…
