It's the last newsletter for the decade with 6 months of tasty morsels to chew over.
Shape Shifting: I've had a surge of creativity and have re-set my direction for the future. I'm exited to share some of that with you. Unleashed through my pen - not words - art! Quite by accident, I discovered a talent for drawing. Much of October was SCUBA diving and capturing the natural environment in photos and drawings. This has reignited my creative spirit and I've developed some campaigns based on my art, with awareness and fundraising as part of the work.
Activities around Accidental Aid Worker will now drop away after 4 years. I've sold most of the copies of my book, delivered over 50 author talks about The Power of Connection and Community and raised funds to help my kids in Cambodia. Mission accomplished. I'll shift focus to delivering more of my Author Brand and Marketing Workshops through libraries in NSW.
Zulu Communications is now also back in action with a renewed focus on strategic planning and marketing communications for individuals and businesses. WATCH THIS SPACE - 2020 is set to boom!
Thank you for your continued interest and support. I wish you and your loved ones an incredible beginning to a new, fresh decade.
Have a very safe and restful festive season.
