Are you dreaming about what life would look like, sound like, feel like when you retire?

Not sure if you are ready.

Exit Your Cave

There are times in our life when we all go into the cave, we are here to support you to exit the cave and live the life you want to remember!


Hit a Home Run

In 1929 Babe Ruth became the 1st baseballer to hit 500 home runs.

He did this because he was doing what he loved and believed in himself.  It wasn’t about how many home runs he made, but never giving up and following his dreams.

How many home runs do you have inside you?  Celebrate your achievements by sharing your recent #wins and remember you are one decision away from another home run.

Need support in hitting home runs, contact us at Startafreshlife below.


Everything you need could be right there!

We often spend all our time trying to fill our lives with things we “want”.

What if what we want is actually holding us back from being the best we can be?

What if all we need is right there in front of us and inside us?

You know what is right for you, but are you brave enough to be the best you can be.

If you would like to find out more or want support in discovering how to be the best you can be – contact us at Startafreshlife for information.

Believe in yourself

At Startafreshlife we support you to believe in yourself, to fly as high as you dare and to succeed in whatever you put your mind too.

Can you leverage resistant employees to implement change?


Can you leverage resistant employees to implement change in your organisation?

Of course you can, we do it all the time by using existing models which inform the employee of “what’s in it for me” and then they become our champions.  But is this successful all the time?

The Ironic Manager project looked at those employees who were mocking, sarcastic, resistant and yet also worked to implement the change.  What they found has the ability to change the way we think about these employees, but also how we engage them through change to achieve more successful outcomes.

Dr Richard Claydon and Professor Richard Badham found that these employees were generally ironic because they were trying to survive in an ever changing organisation.  This sarcasm, cynicism and resistance helped them to cope and understand the life around them.

Think about it, do you know anyone in your organisation who appears to be ironic?

Over the next week we will look at ways we may be able to leverage these employees to not only implement change, but improve it also.


Do you understand what is going on in your business?


Do you understand what is really going on in your business?  Are you leveraging what you know to get the best from your employees and for your company?

The Ironic Manager is a new concept about how to create change and leverage your employees to be part of the solution and less about being part of the problem.

What stories do you hear in your organisation, are you brave enough to explore those further to improve your productivity, culture and outcomes.

I heard about the Ironic Manager originally on an ABC interview which I have attached here to give you an understanding and decide are your brave enough to change and try another approach.

This week I am going to research The Ironic Manager more and provide information that will help you to decide if being an Ironic Manager is right for you.



Everybody’s free to wear sunscreen


This video was sent to me by my son this morning.  Don’t you love the feeling when your son is the one giving you advice and he is right.

Anyway, I encourage you to listen to the words of Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

The video says it all, and thank you Adam for reminding me.
