Journal your way to success!

Special *extended* edition: don’t let the word “journal” put you off! Regardless of whether you’ve not put pen to paper for decades, and the idea of writing without a computer keyboard seems a crime – it is still possible to make journaling work for you.

[Gina & Sam both use a form of journaling from The Artist’s Way called Morning Pages – for more info have a look here.]
