You can’t start the day without:
A cuddle with my boys.
A favourite quote is:
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
One wellness ritual you do regularly:
I get a massage every couple of weeks and I take beautiful indulgent candle lit baths. Love it.
The last inspiring podcast you listened to and what makes it worth a listen:
I listen to so many! My favourite at the moment is Marie Forleo's because she's just launched her book and has amazing energy and is having incredible conversations with awesome humans.
A recommended read for personal growth:
Can I recommend my own book? ;) ONE LIFE - by Tina Tower. It shares the stories and lessons to help you to take this one life and live it fully.
How do you go about self-development?
I read a lot, I listen to a lot of podcasts and I go to a lot of events and seminars. I am a pretty big personal development junkie. I do think that to be the best version of ourselves we have to constantly be open to change and improvement and learning.
Which business or person inspires you right now?
Rachel Hollis. She's been at it a long time but has just burst through the stratosphere and is incredible at what she does. Her message and the way she shares it is inspiring.
It's so valuable to have that person who can hold space for you, believe in you, challenge you and advise you.
