Trek goes missing, turns up for work late, helps balance my work day.

Wow, Wednesday already, I am so busy with Motivational Steps normal engagements, keynotes and workshops, but recently I have gained more clients who engage me as their life or business coach. I am also planning a second book, part of the title will be "Have you read the script dear"? My book is a manual for Men who seem to say the wrong thing or not say anything at all when their significant other is really looking for an honest answer. Reading "the script" will definitely help all the men out there!

Bribes, Jibes and Fashion Shows

Well, having a Company Director means never a dull moment in my home office, or anywhere else for that matter! Trek seems to be settling in nicely, Motivational Steps definitely finds him an asset. As you all know Trek became my Company Director because I was so lonely working in my home office and it is not always possible to be out and about meeting clients or networking. Trek is really good "Company". Trek is proving a useful addition and is really into media and attracting attention for Motivational Steps.

Beware your Microsoft Office Attachments

Several years ago, it was popular amongst virus writers to use Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, etc.) to cause you problems.

Trek Enjoys a Day Off at the RIM Company Picnic

After the reporters left me and Trek in peace we had a quiet moment together and vowed never to be parted again! Trek would become my shadow, where I went he would be there beside me. As a treat Trek came to my husbands company picnic on Sunday at Bingemans Water Park. We had to smuggle him in as we only had enough tickets for ourselves and two of our children.


Company Director Reinstated by Motivational Steps

Trek was quite the hero when the reporters were accusing me of being a poor example to him. He read from a prepared press release he had in his briefcase "When Ms Ockwell-Jenner took me along to the beer festival she did not know that I was actually an undercover agent for Bears R Us, which is an organization dedicated to ensuring the safety of entrepeneurs, such as Ms Ockwell-Jenner, the owner and founder of Motivational Steps. There are people out there who try to discredit small business owners in any way they can.

Trek Redeems Himself!

As Trek waved goodbye and walked out of my office I felt a twinge of sadness, my Bear of Hope was leaving me, I would be lonely again, what would I do without him. As I sat thinking about what I would do without Trek I heard a commotion outside and decided to go and investigate. There were at least 40 reporters outside and they were all talking at once and asking where I was. Evidently they all thought I was a bad employer for allowing my Company Director to fall prey to beer and that I had set a poor example to Trek by taking him to the Beer Festival.

A Hungover Trek - Company Director Disgraces Motivational Steps

The paparazzi were out in full force at the Festival, one click of the camera and there it was a photo of my new Company Director, face down on the table,empty beer glass with Elvis looking on! What a disgrace to Motivational Steps, how would I ever be able to redeem my good name I asked myself as I scooped Trek into my purse and we drove home. Trek had quite a hangover the day after his disgraceful behaviour and I decided there was nothing else I could do but dispense with his services.
