The Fenn/Walker reunion

So great to see my co-author Heidi Walker and her family who were visiting the UK on holiday. I’ve known Heidi since college, we graduated together from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College (now Randolph-College) in 1994 but it wasn’t until we wrote our book together in 2013 that I realized just how much we have in common.

Sneak peek inside Inspiring Global Entrepreneurs

Well it’s here! Arrived when I was out on the school run so had a moment of disappointment thinking it wasn’t coming when my neighbor came over and handed me a package.

The writing pressure is on… how exciting

The writing pressure is on… how exciting

I was up most of the night last night thinking/dreaming about the book I’m currently co-writing with Heidi Walker, a fellow American expat who has now repatriated. We’re writing a book called Inspiring Global Entrepreneurs and have now set a deadline for publication. Setting this deadline has done two things to me – stressed me […]
