No Coffee Snobs Allowed, Just Give Me My Bloomin’ XX ‘HOT’ Latte…

On our trip to Melbourne recently which we absolutely loved, there were a few things that really bothered me about this coffee ‘snob’ culture in Melbourne that we had heard so much about and I would love to talk about it.   There were two more things that made my eyebrows lift with slight shock and they were the amount of homeless people on the streets of Melbourne and the absolutely huge amount of people who were smoking!

POWERING BEYOND THE DREAM

“What do you do once you have fulfilled your dream?”

That is a good question because for many people after reaching their ultimate goal, they end up taking a nose dive. You may have noticed this especially in the sporting arena where a team may play at an exceptional level to win the championship. Only to find that the following year with same players and the same coach they struggle to win a game. Continue reading POWERING BEYOND THE DREAM
