But there’s still plenty of time to take stock and work out what would bring you the most joy or relief to have completed by the end of this year. And then most importantly, to go ahead and make it happen :-).
If you’ve been following me on either Facebook or Instagram, you would have seen some of the work going on behind-the-scenes. You can also get a sneak peek by checking out my new website header above (a bit like the image below).

Each month I want to shine a spotlight on how business owners incorporate their creativity across all aspects of their life, and give some ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how they started and plan for their business.
This month I’d like to introduce you to The Creative Life of Fay Chan.
Fay runs Budgeting123 as a Financial Readiness and Budgeting Coach. Fay helps individuals and families to plan their household savings and spending goals. The foundation of her work is based on awareness and responsibility – knowing where your money goes and where it doesn’t go!

So what has all of this number stuff got to do with creativity? And no, it has nothing to do with creative accounting :-).
I really enjoyed talking to Fay because she links numbers, money and creativity with being spiritual, empowered and on purpose. I was also in awe of the importance that Fay places on being aligned and grounded in relation to her creativity and how she works. Her creative practices may appear simple, but they are consistent with what research is discovering about the creative process*, and are helping Fay achieve consistent and great results for her business and clients.
So please read Fay’s candid and inspiring interview to find out, amongst other things, about:
the chore that she started in primary school that built the foundations for her current business
the turning point that made Fay re-evaluate her childhood beliefs and give up her corporate job to take a leap of faith towards where she is now
how Fay models self-awareness in juggling work and being a Mum to her pre-schooler
what washing dishes and other mundane chores have to do with fostering Fay’s creativity
