Fun, Freedom & Fulfilment Coach. www.thefierceflamingo.co

I am a Fun, Freedom & Fulfilment in their life and career. I help them get un-stuck and put a plan of action in place for achieving their vision of success and happiness. I believe that life is meant to be lived fully and on your own terms. There’s no time to be miserable following the “life formula” that so many people feel pressured into. Through my own struggles with a quarter life crisis I have come to fully embrace the perspective that life is about having as much fun as possible, being 100% yourself and doing what you love.

Values Vs Expectations

A requirement of being a personal development enthusiast and an entrepreneur is to always keep learning and growing. One of the ways I do this is to read, and I read a lot! Luckily I love it so it doesn't feel like a chore.

Are You Sabotaging Yourself?

When I think back to the beginning of the year when I was still struggling with my quarter-life-crisis, there were so many things I was doing that were totally sabotaging my happiness and success, I just didn't realise I was doing them.

Five Steps To Deal With Anxiety

My anxiety took the form of depression, stress, stomach problems, regular colds and flu, procrastination, near panic attacks, not sleeping or eating properly and loneliness because I was keeping myself away from my friends so I didn't have to talk about my life.

Setting Yourself Up For Success!

I was recently having a conversation with a friend where he was doing just that. It was interesting to me because I can definitely remember times where I've done it too. I've initially resisted the paths that I would end up taking, because they felt either too hard or too easy. Yes, you read that right, too easy and it would seem that I am not the only one who does this.

Do you ever feel too old? When was the point in our lives when we became too old for stuff? It seems like a blurry memory of some point in my mid 20's when I felt like it for the first time. When you've transitioned into being a proper grown up, you're supposed to have it together, earn respect and NOT FAIL OR LOOK STUPID!

Getting To Know My Fear Monkey

I came to understand that my fear monkey was, by it's nature, scared. This prompted me to change the way I was dealing with it, I mean if someone came to you and they were scared about something you wouldn't tell them to f**k off right? You would try and calm them down. This was the new approach I took with my fear monkey and it seemed to start working.
