Funny Things Happen in a BBC Bar…

Posted on July 7th, 2014 by - 1 comment

A few months ago I was with my friend, Laura Rawlings and had just made a small contribution to her BBC radio show. She asked me if we could do a longer interview afterwards for her friend’s website, FreelanceMum. Meet me in the BBC bar after the show, she said. Ooh I thought, how exciting, the BBC bar.

I’ve loved this quote from Lauren Bacall since I first stumbled on it. I had no idea it would feature so much in my life though, when in my late 40s I gave up my comfortable secure job and pension to launch my own business. At 58 I’m still a ‘will be’. Thanks, Lauren!

It’s not art work as such, just another way of looking at things.  Doing things differently now and again generates a different result. If you’re ever feeling a bit stuck, got a problem
