Written by Kate Billing, Founder & Creative Director, Blacksmith


The nearly five weeks we all spent at Level 4, and now our time at Level 3 (and beyond), mean a huge change for ALL of us. Working from home, limited retail, homeschooling kids, home hair salons (God forbid!), and the new experience of ‘lockdown birthdays’, just to name a few!

We are all in a restructure, not of a business but of THE WORLD.

And with that restructure we all have the opportunity to review and realign OUR LIVES.

My special guest for this webinar, Lisa O’Neill, believes this is the perfect time to reassess what we thought we wanted and needed in our lives against what we have discovered we know we want and need. She wants you to use the precious time we have before the vacuum of life reopens to really think about what it is you want.

Lisa is an expert in ‘life-by-design’ and she is passionate about developing our ability to lead ourselves. She believes we are all self-led. Lisa believes that all of the answers we need are inside us but at an early age we stop trusting ourselves, our rational minds take over, and we become caught up in the world’s expectations.

Well, that world has temporarily stopped! And Lisa wants you to know you have been given a gift.

You get to choose what your world looks like now. You get to decide.
