Get an attitude

I tried to be a girl

I tried to be a mess

I tried to be the best

I guess I got it wrong


The person we bully the most is ourselves. This already starts at the age of six! We are in the midst of a self bullying epidemic.

Most of us are unaware that the self sabotaging actions we take, the negative thoughts we think and the pressure we feel is coming from ourselves. Do you sometimes get down on yourself for not measuring up to the expectations you or others have for your body, career, children, finances or relationships? Do you feel you are not accomplishing enough, no matter how? Do you play it safe and small? Do you feel like the whole world is on your shoulders? Do you feel never good enough – always average?

I have never met an average woman. Not a single one!

What I have met though, is too many women who thought they were average; who felt they were ordinary because some one, or many some-ones, taught them they were.

Self sabotage block your success by working against your own self interests.

The only limits that you face are the limits of your own ambition, talent and dedication. Acknowledge yourself. Appreciate yourself. See yourself through a more honest, more realistic lens.

Get an attitude!

They say that if you keep doing what you always did, you get what you always got.

Here are four things I’m going to do differently in 2018 so that I get different results from the ones I got in 2017:

  • I’m going to target those who I think want to buy Mirror Mirror the most
  • I’m going to articulate the problem and the solution in ways that people can better relate to
  • I’m going to focus on building the relationship rather than transacting a sale
  • I’m going to relax my expectations and take each step at a time.

Lindsay’s In Business: PART 24: Twitter and first interviews

What happens when you realise your path is entrepreneurship rather than employment? Lindsay takes up the challenge and shares an account of her journey as it unfolds…

Twitter. Is it….

An annoying ego-based social platform where networking is a thin mask for sales: people with 2.3K followers feel like superstars, but haven’t they got anything better to do?


The ultimate digital social tool that gives you more scale and scope than ever before. Gain access to people, content and ideas. Get lost in a world of online networking opportunity.

How I learned to deal with negative people.

A while ago I found myself in such a state that I could not proceed with my professional life. I felt like  surrounded by negative people only. After a while, I started becoming like them and started sharing their views on the chaotic work situation. There was a lot of nagging and gossiping about everything and everyone around me. Negative people just suck the life out of me. I try to stay positive and remain strong but their negativity ends up just completely draining me. I found myself feeling exhausted and depressed.
