What a great weekend we had last week at the One Life Live show at Olympia, London. We met so many wonderful people – all looking to do something different with their lives. I applaud them all. There they were getting up and taking control of their lives, designing a future that fits them, rather then sitting back and letting life ‘happen’!
Thank you to all those who came to meet us – whether you were looking to downshift, wanting to start again or were looking to live differently after redundancy I hope chatting to you helped in some small way.
Thank you also to all those people who came to hear my speech on “Finding a Future that Fits”. Great audiences and really tremendous feedback from you all – I so hope some of the hints and tips will be of help.
Georgina and I really enjoyed our three days. after the show we met up with friends and enjoyed a long evening eating pizza and drinking a little wine. It was so good to catch up.
On the Saturday we could again be found having a little wine and then back to our great friends in Harrods Village who so kindly put us up – for a little more wine and a wonderful risotto.
Staying across the river was so easy for us – a gated community meant we could leave our car parked safely, and we had a gentle walk across Hammersmith Bridge every day to Olympia. The river Thames looked great – with people rowing, joggers on the tow paths, blossom out and a real sense of spring in the air.
We had a successful show but found that people in this economic climate were very much more cautious than last year and far more considerate about what they were spending their money on. I think that the numbers were down on last year but still it appeared busy and there was lots of very different things for people to do and see.
This year I spoke on the main stage which was fun, many more people and I really felt that I was able to offer something tangible to those who were looking to do something different with their lives.
On TV again as SWAT TV were filming all the speeches and will be doing a feature some time soon. Look out for it as there will also be an opportunity to win a signed copy of our book ‘Life Swap’!!
Now we have come home and are really looking forward to working with all those people who booked in for our courses at Stepping Off.
Our first One Life Livers are coming up this weekend – can’t wait. We have had a lovely quiet winter which has been just so enjoyable but I am ready to get back into harness again.
Busy few months ahead – we are already booked up for every weekend until June with both our courses – so will catch up when I can.
