Happy New Year!
I am so excited about 2020. It’s a leap year in more ways than one because I am proud to announce that I have yet again left my comfort zone and have bought a new business: I am going to the first Certified Bucket List Coach in the UK!
I am scared and excited in equal measure! Always a good place to be, I think, don’t you?
What is a Bucket List? A list of all the things you want to do before you die.
What is a Bucket List Coach? Someone who helps you to write your bucket list and tick it off. Someone you never thought you needed…until now!
Together with a global tribe of Certified Bucket List Coaches® in 15 countries worldwide, I am now helping individual & corporate Non-Bucket Listers to become Bucket Listers.
Our vision is: To create a purposely fulfilled world. Our mission is: To help 10 million Bucket Listers live purposely fulfilled lives.
Why I decided to become a Bucket List Coach
Because life is way too short. As many of you know, my step-dad died of cancer recently when he was only seventy-two years old. For most people that will be only five years into retirement.
People work for fifty years to have a retirement when they will supposedly do all the things they want to do, but many of us won’t live to see that age. I don’t want to wait to live my life and I don’t want others to wait either. The time is now.
I have been a coach for over a decade, successfully getting people over their fear of public speaking and showing them how to ‘own’ the stage. Now I want to get them over their fear of living, and show them how to own their own lives.
The world is my stage now.
It is a privilege to live a life on purpose. I feel lucky to be alive. To be able to guide others to their own bigger life is the greatest adventure of all! I love the mission and feel I have to do something to make the world a better place, I can’t just sit back and watch.
I’m in it for the ride of my life and to take others with me on the ride of their lives.
Let’s do this! Are you with me?
What to expect
This is not meant to make you all quit your job and buy a one-way ticket around the world (although that may be a fortunate side effect!) – it is meant to inspire you to dream and take a moment to pause and reflect on what would make you live a truly happy and fulfilled life.
What do you want to look back at the end of your time, what would make you proud, what would put a smile on your face if you did it?

My Best Bucket List Story
The great thing about a Bucket List is that it helps me (and you) to connect on a deeper level not only with myself but with everyone I encounter – from my closest friends to my Uber driver.
‘What’s on your Bucket List?’ is an instant guarantee for skipping the small talk and making some big talk instead. When in doubt, try it out 😉
Here is my #1 Bucket List story:
I will celebrate my 10-year wedding anniversary next year.
You probably don’t know this, but I thought I was unmarriable. I mean, I probably still am, but ten years ago, it was really getting in the way of me finding anyone – I was living in London, where men always seemed to be looking for the next best thing.
So I went husband-hunting in the provinces.
Ironically, soon after that I met my husband online, well, I bought him on Ebay, I don’t think that counts.
So if you think you can’t find someone, let me tell you the secret.
Lower your standards.
That’s what I did.
To better understand what is ‘thriving’ for you, I’d like to know: What’s on your Bucket List?
As a newly certified Bucket Listologist, I hope that one day I can help you tick this off your list!
So let’s get this journey started!
Until next time, make sure to live your Bucket List!
