5 books that changed my life

  This is a bit of a controversial one to start with. I know these days, The Secret gets a bad rap. But if it weren’t for this book, I know my life would look unrecognisable to what it is today. I’d heard lots of hype around The Secret but didn’t know what it was […]

START

Prefer to listen? Click play…   Bolt of lightning inspiration? Giddy with excitement? Here’s what you need to do next but very few ever do. Just start. Don’t over think it. Don’t ask Ms Google for her opinion. Fuck the planning. Just start. Stepping out into the world as a freelance creative can seem overwhelming […]

Is saying YES killing your business?

A question from Mel. A freelance photographer from Sydney: Hey Vari – I’m a freelance photographer and I work on lots of different types of projects with different clients in different industries.

The perfect sneaker

I’ve always struggled to get casual sneaker/ runner/ trainer shoes to look good on my almost clown-esque large feet! Every time I try a pair of Converse on, I desperately WANT to love them but, it just ain’t gonna happen. Those are for the pixie-footed amongst us. ~~~ I’ve realised that with the wide laces […]

How to create a morning routine (for non-morning people)

Goodbye Twitter. It’s over between us.

Well actually it never really got started between me and Lil’ Miss Twitter. Yes, I’ve had an account for years. I think it was after I read some ebook about ‘How to make your millions on Twitter’. Or something to that effect. The truth is, I just never really got into it. ~~~ Lately I’ve been […]

My biz lesson from the unexpected (it involves kids tv!)

I love how the Universe has its way of sending us lessons in the most surprising of ways. This morning, I was given a sermon on life and business in the form of a kids tv show while I lay in bed with the boys! Watch the video to find out what I learned from […]
