A car advert made a significant impact on me when my children were young. The advert opened on a well-kept urban street. The sun was shining, and all you could hear were birds singing.

I have been thinking a lot about my blog over the last few weeks and how I can provide more value to my readers.
My primary goal of my blog is to help my readers, but my goal as a coach is more than that. It is to help my readers make a sustainable change to their lives.

The downside to you is that you are going to have to do some work as well. The upside though is that you will be moving forward slowly towards a sustainable career and/or life change.
I am 100% willing and able to put the time and effort in each week, but are you?
If you are then let’s get started with this weeks challenge.
