What on earth is the fear of success?
We all know it takes courage and self-belief to start a business. But one thing I’ve discovered is that the journey of personal development doesn’t end when you take that brave step of hanging the ‘open’ sign in your metaphorical shop window.
I’ve had a particularly sudden and sharp trajectory from 9-5 office worker to running my own freelance writing business.
However, the reality is that I’ve been preparing to take this leap for many years.
Last week, on Thursday 17th March, we had an amazing event called "the plot". We were hosted by the wonderful Duck and Dry and we will be back very soon!
The objective of the event was to have an introspective journey, guided by psychologist Natasha Tiwari, in order to understand what happens when we are in the "zone 2" of our story, right after the comfort zone and before the resolution one. In other words, what to do when things go wrong? And which strategy can be easily implemented for us to start rising again?

The last NOI event was fantastic: the topic was leadership, but with a difference. There was no talk about developing leadership skills or thinking like a man, the focus was more on authenticity.
A stage and I are diametrically opposed.
Don't get me wrong: I love getting some attention and being able to engage people...but I feel everyone else in the world would do a better job than me :)
During the 9th July event we discussed about some life changing books. One of them was Be a Free Range Human by Marianne Cantwell. After the event I prepared a list of resources that included this book and shared it with the NOI ladies on facebook. Lorna, one of the founding members, mentioned to me that Marianne was in London.
What makes an event a success? Certainly not a tube strike and IT gremlins! Well, the above mentioned issues seemed to be the main ingredients of the second NOI event we had on July 9th.
