Happy New Year!
Like the terminator, I am back from a lovely holiday and ready to start January with a bang. I also have much news to tell you about our offerings in the next couple of months so get excited…
Before I get to this though I was at a retreat at the end of November last year and I was asked what I wanted my word of the year for 2023 to be. Now, this is a little cheesy but I love a bit of Fromage, and I find New Year’s resolutions to be largely ineffective so I ruminated on this for a few days. I finally settled on the word courageous.
I have spoken to you before about only regretting the chances you didn’t take in life, and so 2023 is my year of taking risks, trying new things and being brave professionally and personally! The universe has obviously said ‘challenge accepted’ because, in the last 48 hours, I lost two of my precious fur babies. Time to put my big girl pants on and be courageous with this as life can change in an instant and I am passionate about making the most of the time we have.
If you had to pick one word for your 2023 what would it be? Please reply and let me know, I would love to hear.
Part of the reason I picked courageous was that I see it in my students every day. To take on a degree when you have many other commitments, children, work, animals and let’s be honest a social life and Netflix is a lot. To sit an exam when you haven’t sat one in ages or work was so crazy that you found it difficult to find time to revise is courageous. To invest in yourself, to take action to improve your circumstances takes courage, and if you are on the fence about starting or continuing then remember this. You may find the process hard but the outcome is inherently worth it, and I say that having taught over 5000 + buyers now, and seen how their careers have flourished.
As always I am here for you as a special CIPS Fairy GodMother, so let me tell you how I will help…
Starting on January 31st we are launching THREE 30-day revision challenges, one for Level 4, 5 & 6. The modules are L4M3, L5M3 and L6M1. I will be letting you know how to sign up for this very soon.
