Start Where You Are

Start Where You Are

“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.”

I have been thinking about Yellow Dot for some time now. Media focus on wage disparity and the #metoo campaign tells me that there is still room for a safe space where women can learn and grow in a non-judgemental, supportive environment.

I have spent over twenty years working as a counsellor, coach and trainer with individuals and businesses across the UK and beyond but I still sometimes need to remind myself of the lessons I have learned and have taught to others.

Today‘s repeated lesson is a quotation from Arthur Ashe:

“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.”

I have been procrastinating like mad about this venture, telling myself that I need a website, some design work, a logo, a marketing plan and the list goes on. In reality I need myself and I need to tell people that I am here – everything else will happen when it needs to.

So with a little bit of my own (very basic) design work (yes I used PowerPoint), an iPhone selfie and half an hour on Facebook I can hit the road running. As of now I am “doing” instead of “planning”

Please like and share the page even if you are (dare I say it?) a man – you may still find something relevant in the content. I will use this page to share some of my thoughts on personal growth and to advertise workshops etc.

Watch this space for some more professional additions. In the meantime, please tell me what development needs you have and what workshops you would like to see Yellow Dot offer.
