I cannot believe that everybody is talking about how 2018 is coming to a close, how it is only a matter of days until my Christmas decorations will come out and that it is almost time to set intentions for 2019. But that time tends to fly is nothing new or surprising, so let’s make the last two months of 2018 as amazing as we can – maybe with a good read!

Not much time left in 2018 now!
So it isn’t a surprise that as of late more and more blogs and vlogs appear with lists about the things that we could still do with the rest of 2018 to make it amazing. This one is about books. Continue reading “2018 Year of Books – Part One: All the books I’ve read so far”
– September to October 2018. Is it all in the journey or the destination? Of plans that develop a life of their own. –
We’re in October, autumn, pumpkin season, month two of project Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur!
Had I originally ambitiously announced to reflect on my learnings about growing my business weekly, I have now reviewed the practicality of the idea and decided to do it monthly instead. This will give me more to talk about in each instalment and is also a better ratio of reflecting about development to doing something about development. It also made me think about exactly how and why we plan. Continue reading “Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur: What I have learned this month”
Get into the outside world and be active. Whether it is an epic climbing tour or a gentle stroll – no matter what, as long as you get into the great outdoors.

This article is one of a five-part series decluttering and minimising a space. Read the introduction to decluttering and the idea behind it, here.
The following parts are going to be about physical decluttering, digital decluttering, mental decluttering and, in the last part, about how we wrap up the journey of decluttering and carry forth the beneficial effects of the process.
Welcome to part one: Physical decluttering. Continue reading “Does it spark joy? Part one: Physical decluttering”
Getting outside is always a good idea. It can help to clear the mind, move the body and recharge the batteries. And if nothing else, it can be so much fun! So when Ordnance Survey calls people outside for National Get Outside Day, Jennifer Hikes follows – are you coming?

Decluttering is such a powerful tool when it comes to personal productivity and is so much more than tidying a space. As I have argued in a previous post, the physical space we live in is directly connected to our mental state and therefore to the level of productivity, motivation and enjoyment we feel. Clearing our desks together was just the beginning! Continue reading “Does it spark joy? Declutter your space, declutter your life.”
When I see other hikers out in the wild, I always try to get a good look at their gear and – I have to admit it – probably stare at them a little longer and a little harder than what would be appropriate. It might be a bit strange, but I just love to find out what other people use. Today, it’s my turn to share another piece of my kit with you and that’s my Granite Gear Crown 2 60 backpack. Continue reading “Gear check: Granite Gear Crown 2 60”
First month. Wait, does this mean there is going to be a second and a third? Yes, and many more! This post is the first instalment of a new series all about my journey as a business owner; all about building, growing, learning.
Each month, I will be sharing what I have been up to and what I have learned whilst building and growing my business. Continue reading “Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur: What I have learned this month”
