Your business is a reflection of you…

One of the hardest things to do is to FIRE staff. Staff, for most dentists, would be the number 1 issue they face. “If my staff were better…” – I hear versions of this all the time! The reality is that you need to realise that you are responsible for your...
My Child is my world…

My Child is my world…

I live right next door to a childcare centre… Every day I have the incredible noises of all the kids… Screaming. YELLING! Crying… Laughing! This all goes on while I work away on my business. It’s a beautiful reminder for me about how present and in the moment kids...

I’m feeling anxious…

Anxiety is a feeling I know very, very well. I used to have a lot of almost anxiety attacks. I’d spiral and think about things over and over again, and I’d feel like I was going to break down sometimes. We are all inundated with stress. The clinic. Homelife… etc etc…...
Are you pushing yourself too hard..

Are you pushing yourself too hard..

Recently I had a big public speaking workshop to give for Dental Women…Leading into that, I had one of those days where I was sitting down to write out what I was going to do at this workshop. There was so much push – push – push in my body! I lost my...
