Be Happy!

Can I share some exciting news with you? It’s got absolutely nothing to do with running a business but I’m just busting to tell someone…

One of my sister’s had a baby this afternoon – her 4th girl. Zara Belle arrived 4 days late just so she could share her birthday with her Grandma (my Mum), so Mum’s birthday dinner has been postponed until tomorrow night.

It’s days like today, when I get a 3.30pm phone call asking me to pick up my other nieces from daycare and school, that I truly appreciate working for myself and having flexible working conditions.  

So, after a week full of surprises, challenges and where absolutely nothing went to plan, here’s a short quote that seems to fit just right:

“When you’re happy for no reason, you’re unconditionally happy. It’s not that your life always looks perfect – it’s just that however it looks, you’ll still be happy.”

Marci Shimoff, Author of Happy for No Reason: 7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out

Here’s to your business success…



  1. Congratulations to you and all your family. Zara is such a pretty name.
