This is not Ikigai

What burst another bubble?  Most of you will have heard of Ikigai, the Japanese concept that has often been translated as your “reason for getting up in the morning”, and beautifully depicted in a wonderful Venn diagram as a meeting point between what you love doing, what you’re good at, what the world needs and…

Yannick Jacob, Coaching & Psychedelics

Coaching & Psychedelics?

I’m tempted to write a long bit as to how coaching & psychedelics can benefit each other (and indeed, beyond what I’m already offering, I am in the process of authoring an academics white paper on the topic), but at this point I just wanted to share what might be a historic step in the…

How I put my prices up – fair & equitable (I hope)

My mum instilled a strong sense of fairness in me and in combination with living on relatively little money throughout my 20s and knowing what it’s like to want to attend exciting events but unable to afford it, I developed a bit of resistance. Now I…

Life Coaching for people who give a shit with Liz Goodchild
