Visualisation, a happy new year and being in love with your: This Christmas week has been the end to a perfect working year. I achieved my two goals: my book was published and you can find me on Amazon, and I gained my Masters degree. I also met a bunch of lovely, interesting, talented and – occasionally – famous (and sometimes bonkers!) people. I never dreamed when the year began that a social media

Soldiers, Santa and social media serendipity: I received a call this week to give advice to a wonderful charity that supports severely wounded soldiers, and this led to giving them some Twitter tips. I corresponded with Tal, the chairman, for a couple of days before he invited me to dinner, so I met him and his friends in a small Italian restaurant in Farringdon, and they were completely char

A degree in plain English, dirty Diana and an intimate momen: On Tuesday I found out that I passed my exam and I now have my Masters Degree. Yaaay – very pleased with myself. Thank you for the many Facebook messages and tweets. The results came out a week early, so actually, I discovered this only due to a posting on the Facebook group page – got to love Facebook!!

Facebook paid ads, the luck of The Human League and emails y: The last few days seem to have revolved around a reliance on social media. I had a very cultured week, with visits to the Royal Albert Hall and National Gallery. Well, Albert Hall maybe not quite so cultured – The Human League concert, but it was such fun!! We found out about it through a Facebook social media paid ad. I must admit that I usu

Unlocking your potential, achieving your goals and someone e: I met some fab people on Thursday night at a business growth seminar that I was invited to by someone I've made friends with through social media. Keith is the performance coach for the British Paralympic Team and he gave an amazing talk about how we internalise motivation. He says that if we can't imagine doing something, we'll never get i

Client recommendations, new LinkedIn contacts and Amazon's top 12: I love introducing people and recommending brilliant services, so was very happy last week to pass on a project to a web designer friend who recently gave me some nice copywriting work. It's great to create words to help people get their message out there and see them start to make money from on-line sales. Effective communication is everything

The Colours Inbetween, kissing hormones and embarrassing thi: On Tuesday I met a woman who has NEVER engaged in social media! She's heard of Facebook but never seen it; she thinks that celebrities use Twitter to gossip about each other and she doesn't like email because 'it leads to strangers taking over your life!' I was absolutely gobsmacked. She wasn't old and didn't look odd, just rigidly

Teaching social media, Celtic tradition and stroking Matt Matt Malloy's Grammy: Halloween in Ireland was as spooky as it gets! Angie and Peter live in a Southfork-style ranch on a sheep farm, fantastic in the day; eerily dark and bewitching at night. No one trick-or-treats as the path from the road is long and windy, and the nearest neighbours are a short drive away down the 100kph road. I wore my best witches hat anyway –

Social media to the rescue, post-apocalyptic Olympic Park an: I got stuck on another website I�m creating this week, when I needed to resize a whole batch of photos and I didn�t have a clue where to start. Hooray for Twitter!! I posted a tweet asking for help and within minutes a lovely guy named Elliott replied with a suggestion of how to go about it.

Captain Kirk, linguistics and creating backlinks for SEO: Many of you who are my friends or fans on Facebook will know that I spent yesterday at the international Star Trek convention. If you�re not a geek, please don't switch off!! It's not all Klingons and alien kisses. The highlight of my day was a conversation with Sir Patrick Stewart

Networking through LinkedIn, going underground and designer: A man I'd never met before came up to me: "Didn't I see you in that film...?" No, I don't think he did, but it made for an interesting start to another morning of networking in the glamorous and tempting Grosvenor Casino. Tom, an actor and presentation skills coach, invited me to join him afterwards for coffee.

Facebook fundraising, mail order cakes and being out of Twit: I took a rare afternoon off this week, to visit beautiful Canterbury Cathedral. What a treat the whole city was � ancient, cobbledy alleyways boxed in by an eclectic array of fantastic architecture dating from Tudor to modern; almost every other building housing a tea shop.

E-book publishing, Mai Tais in Park Lane and business meetin: It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. Not Dickens, I’m talking about last Tuesday. In fact, it was nowhere near the worst of times – it was lovely, it was just way too early. I woke up at 4.30 – still the middle of the night as far as I’m concerned – and was out of the house, on and off two trains and in Upper Woburn Stre

Childhood stroke, duck in a bra and a night at the opera: Our evening at the opera was truly splendid! I don�t usually say splendid, but considering the company and the amazingly glorious surroundings it seems appropriate. Drapers Hall is a gorgeous baroque and marble treasure set amongst other architectural delights within the City�s square mile. It�s like stepping back in time, with Old Master
