    What happened to aerobics…and why should we care?

    400 268 Lisa Steingold

    I remember as a young girl (I’m just a little older than a young girl now) I used to wake up and watch “Body Beat” every weekday morning whilst getting dressed for school. A guy scantily clad in overly short shorts and a shirt with not enough material exposing both belly button and shoulder lead three women in leotards and L.A.Gear shoes to a beat…

    Your guide to nailing it!

    1000 667 Lisa Steingold

    This blog centres on both random and (hopefully) fascinating life topics but today I wanted to talk a little shop, from the point of view of hitting your career and work goals. I am privileged to mentor for the Chartered Institute of Marketing in the UK as well as a few individuals locally and am…

    Who (and what) are you voting for?

    398 183 Lisa Steingold

    Each and every day we make thousands of seemingly small and inconsequential decisions but are they? We may not mark these decisions on a piece of paper but by our actions we vote. We vote with our money, we vote with our time and we vote with our opinions. We vote for brands by supporting them. We vote for people by the time we spend with them…

    You can’t have confidence without risking looking like a fool

    1024 576 Lisa Steingold

    I was asked to speak at an event yesterday on “self confidence”. When asked to speak on the subject, I confess my heart sank somewhat. I don’t believe I possess such a luxury and I’m always loathe, if not vehemently against speaking, or writing, on topics I know nothing about…

    What’s your story? My virtual coffee with Mnotho Mtshali

    150 150 Lisa Steingold

    You know I have to say that listening to all the voices in my head can get somewhat tiring. In addition I have to say that it’s often someone else’s perspective on life that shifts my own or just opens my eyes to something new. There are a few people I “follow” on LinkedIn and in the real world who’s views have really piqued my interest. One of these such people is Mnotho Mtshali. Mnotho works for Unilever in their Southern Africa division and lived in London town when I spent time there too in 2018…

    The world is f’kd – or is it?

    1024 489 Lisa Steingold

    I titled this piece as such because it sometimes feels to me that the current general ‘sentiment’ (given my experience living in South Africa, the UK and Spain) is TWIF (the world is … – fill in the dots). Is it though? I’m not so sure….

    Don’t chase your dreams

    800 867 Lisa Steingold

    I do realise that what I’m about to say is contrary to much of the current #LiveYourBestLife social narrative. I also realise that each of us have to follow our own path so listen, or read, to what resonates with you and ditch the rest…

    You’ve changed

    929 765 Lisa Steingold

    I’ve got some (bad?) news for you; you’ve changed. Yup, you and I have changed.

    We’re not the same people we were two years ago, maybe even two months ago. I realised this when reading my latest brilliant read “The Fearless Monkey” by Dennis Heijn…

    What’s your time worth?

    800 450 Lisa Steingold

    I was thinking about Theresa May yesterday; not in the “I wonder if she wants to be my friend” kind of way but more in a “I wonder if it’s worth it” kind of way. Let me clarify from the outset of this post that I wish to make no reference to her political choices besides I think she’s had her fair share of grilling of late in the #Brexittales.

    Is age just a number and what do you want to eat?

    549 340 Lisa Steingold

    Who says that age is a number that defines us?
    I’ll put this all in some kind of context with another confession. I turned 40 in December. It’s not (yet) an event I’m embracing. In fact, internally there’s more a kind of absolute refusal to embrace the number much like a horse’s stubborn refusal to drink water despite being taken to the trough.
