On the eve of The Avid Doer’s second birthday, I share the top three things I’ve learned about blogging and the writing process, and talk about my plans for the future.
I've just finished a fascinating read: 'The Art of Thinking Clearly' written by Rolf Dobelli.

Have you just started, or thinking about starting a new course while holding down a job and not sure how to fit the time in? In this post, I explain the two elements needed to make this work.
Has it been a while since you’ve had an interview? Do you hate being put on the spot to talk about yourself for an hour to strangers?

In this post, I talk about different ways to improve your confidence so that your nerves don't get in the way of your next big opportunity!
