Get ready to love your life!

Growing up, being an adult, all the million and three things we expect ourselves to know by the time we get that first job, first car, or first place to live. What no one tells us is that the know-how for creating a life that feels fabulous on all levels doesn’t magically get handed to us. Growing ourselves into happy and successful adults is often a matter of trial and error.

We learn by screwing up and then course-correcting. Figuring out who we are with each step we take. Creating our future in each moment. First this one, then the next, and the next… Each action we take leads us into a future, which is the present we are living in right now.

Whether you’ve just started on your path or have been living life for long enough to have forgotten exactly how you got here, this book is here to remind us that we always have an opportunity to change, to fine-tune our lives. We can create lives that are fully aligned with who we are, and what our hearts most desire. It’s easy to forget that we can take time to slow down, and evaluate how we feel about life, relationships and career. Harder still to remember that we always have choices and can transform our lives, often in less time than we think.

Transformation is simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s always going to be easy. No Plaid Suits: how not to have a boring, normal life, is a guidebook for transformation, one step at a time. It’s a reminder that change happens only when we pay attention, choose action and create change for ourselves.


“Insightful and encouraging—

No Plaid Suits: How not to have a boring, normal life, guides you toward self-fulfilling choices and living the life you desire.

A thought-provoking and inspirational book that offers a welcome respite from the constant pressures of our daily lives. I would recommend it to anyone looking to rediscover themselves through time management and positivity.”
