40 years ago I was standing in the shower…


40 years ago I was standing in the shower, looking across to the bay of Antibes and thought, I want this!

22 years ago I started making real changes. No more 9-5.

12 years ago I turned my dream into reality.

From Sutton Coldfield to the south of France via Southampton.

The story of how a single, self-employed and rarely solvent, wrong side of 50, female, follows her heart.

 Here was my 10 point plan.

  1. Know what you want.
  2. Be realistic. Don’t go the ‘all or nothing’ route. **
  3. Close your eyes and ‘see’ your future.
  4. Draw up a plan. A mood board helps.
  5. Deadlines are crucial.
  6. Do not wait for the perfect time. There isn’t one.
  7. Only tell others on a need to know basis.
  8. Do a dry run or 3. Research is vital.
  9. Focus. Focus. Focus.
  10. Celebrate!
