It looks like I have been accepted into the business mentoring programme here in Wellington, and coincidentally, I have been matched with one reader of this blog. Of course, everything I do for the programme is totally conﬁdential. But I hope to be inspired by the folks I meet.
I went in expecting to do one client per month. I walked out with three.
I would recommend the programme to those needing help, or looking to help. It is totally charitable—I believe I can claim something like 60-odd cents per kilometre for the petrol, and a tiny amount for incidentals. And being in my business, I have to be extra-careful that my advice does not go into paid consulting, to preserve the integrity of the programme.
One-on-one consulting for free sounds just the ticket, and a good way to get back into the community. Plus, all the reporting I do post-meeting is online.
Next step may be ramping up the international public speaking and lecturing again, and then those books … I am savouring the possibilities. And, somewhere along the line, sorting out the regular paid work.

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
