In my professional life, I am a networker. I host networking events under the banner of This Lady Loves, a platform for promoting businesses to a primarily female audience. I also mentor new businesses with the support of a group of international colleagues, who are experts in their field. I help people who want a change in their life and are motivated to try something new, and I love it. Sometimes my work involves international travel. As a people person who loves helping others, with a deep love of travel, I spend most of my working life doing the things that please me most. I feel I Live Life Well – hence the name of my blog.
The spanner in the works here is my “other” life !

Some people think that working from home is the holy grail, but I would beg to differ. Facing down a less pleasant work task, like database management, becomes extra challenging when a mundane household task is calling, or the dogs want walking, or someone wants feeding…
As blogging is completely new to me, this blog is currently evolving. I document the highs and lows of family life, the challenge of achieving a work/life balance that keeps me sane and occasionally share tips that might make life easier.
