Reasons to be Cheerful

This week has been stressful, what with one thing and another. I seem to have been behind and stressing over just about everything, which is rather irritating. All the more reason then, to think of reasons to be cheerful!

Lighthouse – A couple of friends and I have set up a new networking group for people considering starting out in business, or people who just want a bit of extra knowledge. Our plans are coming together, and the first meeting is next Thursday – when I will be giving a talk about Twitter! I’m a little nervous, but it’s so exciting too!

Helping a Friend – The other day I spent the morning at a friend’s house, helping her with her blog. She’d never used WordPress before, and has never blogged before, but wanted to start a blog on her website. It was great to be able to help someone to do something constructive, and to actually feel knowledgeable too! It was great to be able to help this particular person, because she’s been really great lately, helping me out with a lot of things, business wise.

Radio AppearancesLast week’s 5 Things went really well, I felt like we really nailed it and it sounded great going out. I managed to get hold of an mp3 to put onto the blog post too so that people who missed it on Sunday night could still listen. And then last night, I was on BBC West Midlands talking about my Lent #SomethingFun project, which is always nice. When I was talking to the producer to arrange the call, he said I was good on the radio – which was a pretty awesome thing to be told.
