My friend Debs told me about how kind and welcoming everyone at her networking group was when they met up in person for the first time last week. They had met and started to build connections online. Debs was one of the first to arrive, feeling a little bit nervous, and the excited waves she […]

Country park kindness

While sitting on a large balcony overlooking a lake in the sunshine and drinking coffee at a café at Dinton Pastures Country Park with friends, my friend, Mike, suddenly leapt up and dashed across the terrace.

So much […]

Paying it forward in business

Small kindness, big community

“I love finding these painted rocks, there’s a Facebook group for them in Llantwit because they’re such a big thing. Everyone’s excited to find them.” How beautiful to have a whole community excited and connected by something as small as painted rocks. No kindness is too small and this story from Caz proves the power […]
