All is Revealed - Trek the Hope Bear is actually a....

Bear...yes he is. I thought to myself a few weeks ago I am always required to be motivational, and serious and know all the correct answers and, guess what? I too like to be silly and let my hair down, have a laugh. As most of you know who either receive my monthly digest, Stepping Stone, or who have read my book, A Life Like Mine, I am a two time breast cancer survivor. The second time I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2000 I received the news with acceptance.

15 Year-Old Revolutionizes the Business World

This may have passed you by, but the business world has been turned upside-down so completely, that we're seeing entirely new business models emerge. Not only that, but the very way we do business has been revolutionized.

Curiously, this enormous change has been brought about by a 15 year-old!

On August 6th, 1991 - a fellow at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) posted a message to USENET, the Internet's message board, introducing his ideas for a new information system. The person: Tim Berners-Lee, his project: the World-Wide-Web!

Trek - my Hero

I arrived at the Police Station and was shown into a holding cell where my poor little Bear of Hope, Trek, was sitting all alone looking very sad indeed. A Police officer told me that Trek had been given a stern telling off for scaring a woman whom I knew to be a business rival. When I asked what had happened Trek told me that he had gone to see the woman because he suspected the Honey she gave him and which I ate, had been posioned. He had tried to get the woman to eat some of the honey that was left in the jar and when she refused he decided to trick her into eating it.

Was I poisioned, or is it just a coincidence, Trek investigates!

I woke up this morning with a funny tummy ache and I felt sick. Trek, my Company Director, the Bear of Hope, suggested that I may have eaten something that did not agree with my digestive system. After going over everything I ate the only thing we came up with that I ate that was different to my normal diet was - honey - the same honey that had been left just outside my home office front door.

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.
