sphinxx leaders in the firing line of Australia’s first Labor budget in 11 years

As Australia’s “Wealthy Families” – defined by Australia’s new government as those earning more than $150k – bear the brunt of last night’s budget announcements, sphinxx leaders could be forgiven for feeling disadvantaged for pursuing career advancement and promotion. If your family income exceeds $150k, you will be subject to tough means testing on the […]

Plant the seed… and see what happens.

Last October I wrote a post on “planting the seed”: It’s no secret that I’m no domestic goddess.  It’s not that I wouldn’t like a Better home and garden; it just doesn’t rate high enough in my priorities.  But around this time of year, for a very brief moment, instinct kicks in and from no-where […]

The f-word

In a discussion with a male colleague the other day, he hit me out of the blue when he labeled me with the f-word. No, not that one. He asked if I am a feminist. I was surprised – it’s not a term that one often hears these days. In our politically correct world, it’s […]

What are you famous for?

In business, I mean, rather than your infamy in general.   At a networking function last week I met a delightful partner in one of Australia ’s top law firms.  Let’s call him Mark.  You know the kind of person I mean, the all-round-good-guy who everyone can’t help but like.He appeared genuinely interested as I relayed the story […]

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??
