Diary of a Portfolio career.  Quarter 4 – The final quarter of 2023. 

One year ago, I set myself a challenge! The overarching theme was, to see what I could achieve working for yourself solidly for one year. I am pleased to say it has been a great year, and I have learnt ALOT!

Join me and celebrate my successes with me of Quarter 4.  

You may ask what about challenges?  I talk about these in other outlets and in talks.

Before, we get into my highlights of Q4, here is a bit about me. I have developed and continue to develop a portfolio career, which sees me combine Consulting, Coach, Authoring and Speaking. 

I hope my journey inspires you.  If you would like to work with me please do reach out via the contact page on this website. 

I am always open to exciting opportunities.
