@amycatling December I will be working on how my own personal brand links in with All Here. This will involve blogging and experimenting via a few other channels; all content that will also serve to flesh out my site!

@amycatling OMG! I am having the biggest Skype call of my career at 3pm today with a prolific entertainment brand that I have wanted to work with all my life!! Plus rallying a London team of volunteers as we get planning underway and grateful we have 2 spanish speakers who are burlesque ladies through and through... I have not managed more than Hola, Muchas Gracias and Por Favor!

Loved the video @amycatling
Next step for December is getting my online course up and running and building visibility.
I went to an event last week with Shaa Wasmund MBE for know-how on online courses.
For visibility I have been networking loads. Even attending an event at the House of Commons last week. I also recently wrote an article for The Huffington Post: Leadership Programmes. What Makes Them Successful? and am now an official contributor.....next step is to write for Forbes and The FT. I submitted both articles this weekend so wish me luck.
And.....I am launching a 2017 planner tomorrow for my clients...which I will also be using myself as I plan to start 2017 with a bang!

Wow - well done on being published in the Huffington Post @Nikki_Thomas! Fingers crossed for Forbes and The FT to follow. Let us know if you get published in there too and I'll make sure to share them.
Same message to you @SereenaAbbassi! Once your first blog post is live share it here so we can help you spread the word.

Thanks so much @amycatling will keep you posted.
One of my pledges was to find a great digital marketeer - she is so good she also pushes me and helps with my motivation. So now I am also currently working on an ebook as well as a 2017 planner. What a month!

I just wanted to let everyone know that it's been such a difficult decision picking the winner that we are taking a little more time to choose.
However, we will be announcing the winner this week so keep an eye on the website for our announcement!

As part of one of my pledges I have put together my planner and my book and feel like my 'giving free value' is being hit.
I have also secured a meeting for next week following the event I attended to promote school governance. Which is boosting my CSR.
And even though it is the Christmas month and I was slightly worried about sales over the holidays...this has actually been my most enagaging month with clients - who said Christmas was a quiet month in the service industry 😂?
Keep motivation high guys - feeling like us Pioneers are going to do amazing things before 2016 is over!
