Sometimes you just have to count the cost
Organisations answer to a lot of different stakeholders, who will all want to know where the money is being spent and why it's being spent there

A popular resolution for many people involves some kind of change to their current employment
Maybe it's a resolution to earn more money to provide for your family or getting out of the place you currently work, and hate
Or maybe it's about taking the plunge to get out of the rat race and become your own boss.

So we wanted to put a blog post together to answer those most commonly asked questions and give you the skinny on making mediation a career.
I want to talk to you about New Years Resolutions
If your family and friends are anything like mine then come new year they are awash with things they are going to do differently this year, with stern resolutions they are making to open a new chapter in their lives
A quick look at gym membership rates and sales figures from the health and fitness industry tells me that there are a lot of people out their making new years resolutions.
I like the idea of New Years Resolutions - I'm not talking about how long people actually stick with them for or how quickly they reach for cake
But the actual idea of New Years Resolutions
Come New Years day you can feel a wind of change on the air as people all over the world decide to consciously make a stand and deal with those things that bother them head on to forge a brighter future.
Well this got me thinking . . .
