    By : Categories : Coaching Comment: 0 Comment

    It’s last week – Sunday 28 February, the day before I normally post my blog and to be honest I was struggling. The time before, my blog got lots of likes and reads and I’m worried this one isn’t as good. That no one will be interested. Should I not post it then? I choose to read my native […]

    By : Categories : Blog Comment: 2 Comments
