I’ve written this post to question whether I’m being overly sensitive or right in taking a hard stance in the face of adversity. Gender equality and diversity are currently the two biggest social challenges being tackled by industry.

However, if you can follow and achieve what I am going to dub The Happiness Equilibrium, you may just be able to escape this fate. So … Continue reading The Happiness Equilibrium
After my holiday arc and a book review, I thought it would be nice to delve back into a personal development and/or career post. For many people, finding the ‘right’ job is always a struggle. If you’re like me and have ever wondered if you’re in the right job, consider the idea of the three C’s. I found this to be a simple yet effective way to … Continue reading The Three C’s
