Success, Failure, and Laughs

It’s been a big few months.

With the successful launch of SisterShip Magazine, and The Gathering event going off with a big bang – I thought things would calm down through May. Silly me.

So with two recent successes what is the failure?

Hmmmm, can’t think of one.

Laughs then? Oh there’s plenty of them…. here are two posts on a recent ‘business’ discussion with Shelley Wright (co-editor of SisterShip) on our private group.

It’s not all laughs, there are many midnight ramblings and 4am starts (and even a few 3am) – too many really. But it has to stay fun – and it is.

I am sure you’ll find our usual professionalism shining through in the up-and-coming issue – as well as our love for our job and your magazine – let us know what you think!

Look out for June’s issue, so many exciting articles – pictures – discussions…  it’s truly inspirational, and that inspiration source will be a big surprise.

Inspirational Women

I had to reblog this – this wonderful and short blog captures the spirit of the Women Who Sail Gathering event this weekend.

It was fabulous…

The Olive Press

Following on from the amazing weekend I just attended in Port Stephens, I’ve come back home buzzing with ideas of what we might do in the future. Every presentation set off a little spark of something, a germ of an idea, a frisson of excitement! OK, not the sailing in Antarctica or the dismasting 1000 miles off South Africa or the rescue in the Pacific. But listening to some of the speakers describing their voluntary work in the Pacific or bartering with the locals for lobsters and veggies or reading to the kids in schools in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands really got me wondering if we could go again. We loved the little bit of the Pacific we did in 2009 and always said we would go back some time.

I got back home and said to Andy ” Hey And! I’ve been thinking…….” He knows now that that…

Last week we launched SisterShip Magazine.

The response has been overwhelming.

First launched thirty years ago, SisterShip Magazine has been taken out of drydock, refitted, and is now ready to set sail. Our team has been busy in the ‘shipyard’ and we are about to untie the lines. We would love you to join us on our voyage!

What Next?

Someone once said to me, “You’re not comfortable unless you are outside your comfort zone!”

…and they were right.

My next project is HUGE and spectacularly exciting… it is timely, innovative, and will make a huge splash very soon.

For now – I am ‘teasing’ out the details… there are hints in the pictures and words… so watch this space and prepare for the big reveal …

If you can guess what I am about to reveal (if you have not been let into the secret squirrel circle already – behave!) – then I’ll send you a gift.

Live Interview – We Love Memoirs

Do you love memoirs?

If you do, you must join the FB group We Love Memoirs, and here’s why:

  1. They are the friendliest group on FB
  2. They regularly have fun competitions with FREEBIES!
  3. There is constant laughter, fun, parties, and jokes posted by lovely people
  4. There’s no self-promotion (authors cannot join just to advertise/market)
  5. The group consists of both authors and many readers
  6. So many recommendations – you will find just the book for you!
  7. Friendship, support, help, and advice (if you’d like it) is freely available
  8. They host weekly Sunday Spotlight LIVE interviews with authors… and…
  9. THIS Sunday it is me!

We Love Memoirs is hosting my live interview this Sunday 1st October

TIME: The interview will start at 6 am AEST. DON’T forget, Aussies, the clocks spring forward Saturday night.

So, it’ll be easy to stop by – Saturday evening for UK/Europe, Saturday afternoon for most parts of the USA, Sunday all day for Aussies… and let’s see what happens.

I’ll take a couple of breaks to care for one of our horses with a cut leg – but that shouldn’t take too long. It’ll give you time to think up some curly questions for me!

Come along and say G’day. You need only join the group and then you can ask me ANYTHING you like, on ANY subject you like! Please share this where you can.

Here are some pictures to whet your appetite…

Fearless Woman: Jackie Parry

Am I fearless? Perhaps sometimes…

Fashion Not Fear

Happy Fearless Woman Friday

Todays fearless woman has such a great story!  It left me feeling like I have some real changes to make and questioning, “Am I doing enough?” 🤔   This is why…

Jackie Parry is a professional Maritime commercial skipper, Maritime teacher and author of four best-selling books.  She’s also a speaker on topics including sailing, travel, life, writing and navigation.

Now you see what I mean?!  I couldn’t wait to share this fearless womans story of how she happily lives the fearless life on her own terms.  But I’ll let her tell her own story.  Let the inspiration begin…

Check out some of these breathtaking pictures from some of her travels.

What do you think of Jackies’ journey?!  Let me know in the comments…

Stay Fearless 💋
