What kind of leader are you – A dream catcher or a rain catcher?


Leadership is the key to any business and personal success.

There are books after books on the subject and I am privileged to have read a few, and more importantly learned from  those learned tomes, and the experience provided by life!

In my conversations those who know my edgy sophistication ( a label given to me by.. Susan Kang Nam ‏ @PinkOliveFamily) also know me  both as a story teller and someone who likes to get rid of “jargon”.

So following a conversation recently about relationships in general and then relationships in particular it struck me that like life, there are sunny days and rainy days and there are those who influence  us have those days.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
