I can’t believe it’s the end of the first week of January already — where does the time go? Had a lovely lunch with Clare of Women in Business and Stevie and Three fame on Wednesday — we laughed so much my cheeks were aching for the rest of the day. She also has great taste in nail polish.

Kelly Rae and Beth’s course, The Business Soul Sessions, starts on the 16th — a few people have emailed to ask if I think it’s worth doing (i’m a contributor), and my answer is yes. Both women know their biz shizzle and are successful at what they do, plus you have perspectives on both USA and UK business as well as some great contributors ;) If i was just starting out with my biz I’d do this course — it’s a good investment (tax deductible!) and their philosophy mirrors my own.

Speaking of business, check out Jonathan’s 2012 Business Catalyst Awards

And finally, it’s been such a joy to read about what makes you guys magical! It’s a shame to close the giveaway as i’ve loved reading the new comments that have been coming in each day. But it is now closed and the (chosen at random) winner is…. Melanie Tinken! Email coming your way, Mel!

Have a great weekend, everybody! xo
