I want to share something important with you. When it's all going to shit, when the poop is really flying at the fan, HOLD ON. This is the time your resolve is being tested the most. Last weekend my family and I said good bye to our horse. I can't begin to describe the pain and guilt and anguish over this loss. It's almost a week on and we are sad to our bones, troubled by the decision we had to make and missing her kind face and soft warmth. On Monday I took a personal day and spent time with my mum and sisters. I also had a proposal due in to a client that day, with a meeting booked in to discuss it on Thursday. I also have my online course which I've been developing and have people interested in joining.

I've seen mentioned across various channels about Facebook splitting the newsfeeds into one with posts from friends and paid for adverts, and one with none-paid for page posts. The general response has been panic. I would urge everyone to KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON. At the moment this is a trial only, happening in 6 countries. Yes, some pages saw their reach crash. Others, who did not rely solely on social media to get their message across to their audience, saw no noticeable difference in their performance.

This post is more personal than I've been of late but it's something that I feel compelled to talk about today. About 10 years ago, when I lived in London with my then fiance, I had a dream, a song to sing ... sorry, I've been listening to too much ABBA lately*. Anyway, this dream. It wasn't a pleasant dream. It was intensely powerful. It was very succinct but so powerful that when I close my eyes now I can still feel it and see it.

I've had a bit of a shock today. At the grand old age of 38, I've realised I've had not one, not two, but now three careers! I've had many jobs within those careers too! Having followed the traditional root of college and university, and bumming around for a year, I started work in my first chosen career when I was 22. I worked in pubs and bars, moved into contract catering and finally into events management, constantly working with customers and team leading on large and occasionally high profile events. I loved it and got to work in some stunning venues in London in my career.
