Day 6 – What difference do you want to make?

Today’s writing prompt: “So what difference do you want to make in the world? What impact do you want to have? How do you want to make things a little better for society?

Day 5: What’s your elevator pitch?

Why the Name “Open To Freedom”

So why the name, “Open To Freedom”. I decided I wasn’t going to spend more than 10 minutes thinking of a name. I also didn’t want to use my actual name so what else could I call it? I guess the reason for me undertaking the Live Your Legend course and this blog is to […]

What am I doing here

So I have been trying to figure out my place in the world, or at the very least to figure out what sort of employment or career I would be best suited to and then to get on with it. Finding myself totally lost trying to figure this out I came across the work of […]
