In Ready Set Start, you will learn on your journey how to:

  • · Create your success and pursue what matters in your life
  • · Harness and build your strengths to achieve your dreams
  • · Overcome struggle is the key to achieving more
  • · Build a community of support

Whether you’re an employee or entrepreneur, retired, or just starting your career. This book offers an invaluable blueprint for your success.

Until now, there has never been a book written about the importance of “Starting Well to End Well,” yet failing to start on the right foot is why most people fail to create the change they want in their lives.

I love an adventure and I love my family, so much so adventure is one of our family values. My husband and I have been married for over 40 years. I’m a mum of 4 wonderful adults and grandma to a cuddle of adventurous grandchildren.

My life long adventure and curiosity has led me to complete a private pilot’s licence, travel widely, live and work in South America, Asia and the Pacific, and to continuously learn and do new things. I love the mountains and the sea and the great outdoors.

My passion to serve has guided me to work with not for profits, develop leadership training, co-found a leadership network for high school girls and work in a wide range of family-related ministries, from hands on to sitting on the board.

I love the Sound Of Music and reading and watching Agatha Christie.
