Quick Confidence Tip

Posted on July 16th, 2014 by - 1 comment

It’s odd, and I am not an exception to this rule, (sigh) but most women I know are trying to make themselves smaller.

What do we all tend to do with small people?

Talk down to them.

Powerful people take up a lot of space, as of right.

Today, whatever height or size you are, stand tall, own the space you are in, walk tall, feel powerful.

Be wonderful!

P.S. You might find yourself feeling taller after a day on RenewYou, you never know! Check our map for your nearest course.

Try Not Being Sorry for One Week

“Sorry to interrupt you, but I need to…” “Sorry, but I’d like to ask a question….” or “Sorry, but I have no right to claim this space/time as mine so am prefacing everything I say with sorry to make myself small and unnoticeable…don’t look at me” If this sounds familiar, either about you or someone you know, watch this video (even though it’s a shampoo commercial it speaks to me) and then try to eradicate that word from your vocabulary

Why is ‘Being Like a Girl’ an Insult?

Posted on July 11th, 2014 by - 1 comment

I hate it when people think they are giving me a compliment by saying I do something ‘just like a man’. I’m a woman, for heaven’s sake, I don’t need my actions validated by being told I do it like a man, i.e. better than if I was doing it like a woman…. Acting ‘like a girl’ was often used as a form of control when I was very young too, usually to stop me playing with the boys: Jane,

Eleanor Roosevelt, An Inspiration.

Posted on July 9th, 2014 by - 3 comments

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was an American politician. She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, holding that title from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office. By common consent she changed the nature of the position of First Lady by being outspoken and political herself. I’ve used one of her quotes for years when running courses: No one can make you feel inferior without your own consent. It’s so

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. To be honest it wasn’t very; the bar itself was shut so I grabbed a coffee and sat there with my knitting

“I’m Not a Has-Been, I’m A Will-Be”

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!
