Fear of failure happens to the best of us. We all want to succeed, we want to appear in control of our lives and we want to ensure we keep those around us safe and secure. But fear of failure is what stops people from trying to be successful in the first place. So what if we re-programmed ourself into re-defining what failure means to us, and then established what we can do to overcome this? In this blog I aim to help you identify what the hell failure actually is, and how I think you can overcome it!
So what is failure and why are you so goddamn frightened of it? Fa...
Daily life can be hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from - there will be little things that upset you, challenge you or annoy you. Fact! I've been through my fair share of daily hardships ranging from business issues to health problems and complete and utter ruts in my journey through life. I've compiled 5 things that I always remember and think you should too!
1. Stay Classy, Sassy and Bad Assy
Staying classy is always something you should remember to do; but don't jeopardise your fierceness. Always speak your mind and do YOU but ensure it is with resp...
Well what a week it has been! I thought it would be cool to talk about my working week as a business woman and the sort of tasks I get up too! I'll take it day by day of last week and see if I can remember as many details as possible!
Today was a day of packing orders for BecauseRacecarBox and Vitamin Coffee and getting them shipped out as quickly as possible. There was well over 500 boxes going out in the afternoon so I had to work quickly and effectively as possible!
I also had an amazing delivery of make-up so Monday was a pretty good day in my eyes!

To put you in the frame; I am a multiple business owner to 5 incredible and very different business's, one of which crosses into both automotive and fitness category's and two which are firmly implanted within the automotive industry. I co-own t...
Recently I quit my job to be fully self employed and wrote a blog post about it! I thought it would be a great idea to tell you the 5 things I have discovered so far about self employment!
1. It's not easy
I never thought it was going to be easy, and I think most people that want to go self employed love a challenge, it is what drives us each day to be better. But there will always be 12094343 tasks in a day to get done, because you no longer have the stability of not getting your tasks done at work and going home at the end of it. If you don't get your tasks done, you don...
Failure first of all is great. You might think I am mad for saying that, but it is! I categorise failure in two different ways;
Macro Failure - This is a proper fail, like going out of business sort of failure.
Micro Failure - Everything else.
Now some could argue that everything is a micro fail. If it didn't kill you, then did you truly fail? I guess not. But if you consider that going bankrupt, or loosing a business is the only real macro fail, then you'll quickly realise that every fail you have had until now probably isn't that big!

I am crazy... crazy about challenges, crazy about really getting what I wa...
