Aha for me = insight for you

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.

The finale of my week has been a lovely soul-soothing breakthrough in a business puzzle that has had me flummoxed for many months. 

And it sparked an insight that might be helpful for you. ✨

While I still have lots of work to do to implement the solution, my Aha Moment reminded me that simply understanding a problem – just knowing clearly what the problem is – can bring such a blissful relief

And given that I always want to share with you whatever is working for me, I’d love to help you enjoy a similar breakthrough if you’ve been feeling stuck, blocked or confused with your creative work

Happily, I have just the thing! 🌟

A few years ago, I sat on the lawn in my little Yorkshire garden and wrote down on pieces of coloured paper all the varied challenges of the creative process. (Because there are many!) 

Then I devised a range of questions to help my lovely clients identify which particular challenge they were facing. 

Because different blocks call for different remedies. 

And it can be hugely helpful just to clarify exactly which remedy you need at any given time. 💎

I turned my findings into a fun little flow chart that guides you – with a few Yes or No questions – to your current stumbling block. 

It also provides you with the Next Step, so you can begin enjoying some lovely momentum and more progress with the creative work that matters to you. 

So, if you’d like to join me in celebrating the relief of clarity this weekend, you can find out more about this small-yet-mighty tool here:

This is a Free Download, so you get to keep it as a handy reference tool for the next time you’re feeling stuck. 

I hope it serves you well throughout your various creative adventures. 💖

And if you do give it a go, I’d LOVE to hear how you get on! 

Wishing you an inspired and happy week, 


PS I promised I’d be sharing some news about another of my secret projects, so here it is: 

There will be more news soon! 😉

As with all the best laid plans and most absorbing creative projects, sometimes things take a little longer than planned. 

So, I’m continuing the refinements and hope to have the Big Reveal ready for you soon. 

If you feel called to write, blog or setup a new brand, I promise it will be worth the wait… 

“Good things take time.”
