CIP058: So You don’t Have Time

If only I had more time… Raise your hand if you’ve ever said that to yourself or anyone else. (Unless you’re in a public place, in which case, I’ll let you off the hook with a blink.) You probably already know on a deeper level that it isn’t really lack of time that’s stopping you […]

CIP056: Why, Why, WHY?! Finding Meaning and Purpose

The starting place for any adventure, project, collaboration, big leap, epic change, scary ass challenge that I take on is answering the simple question: Why? Why am I doing this? Why am I really doing this? Why does this matter to me? It’s not often I get asked these ‘why’ questions. More common is ‘How’? […]

Caveat: I’m a bit biased with this, as an INTJ. That basically means… I love me some routine. I love dreaming up routines, I love planning routines, I love doing routines. But… I haven’t always been this way – at least, not consciously. When I worked a 9–5 job in a design agency, I couldn’t […]

Agghhh! My first fun fail. Ok: not a 100% fail, but an… incomplete challenge. Last week’s fun assignment was… to crochet a bunny. I was so relieved! Finally something that cost me next to nothing, didn’t require booking anything or even leaving the house. And at first, all went swimmingly. I found a Youtube tutorial […]

How do I Network if I'm an introvert?

CIP039: How Do I Network If I’m An Introvert!?

Networking. A word almost as cringe-inducing as saying Volde-I mean, he who must not be named. Regardless of whether you’re an introvert OR an extrovert – I actually don’t know if anyone admits to enjoying networking. It’s kind of like exercise. We know it’s good for us but it doesn’t come without some pain – […]

The Introvert's Guide To Freelancing

CIP035: The Introvert’s Guide To Freelancing

In 2013, my introvert dreams were answered. I had made the heady decision on New Years Day to book plane tickets to Japan, signalling my no-way-backing-out-now decision to leave my safety bubble that was my 9-5 job as a web designer in London. It also signalled the start of my 6-month experiment: be a Freelancer. […]
