There has been so much happening for me, both personally and professionally, over the last couple of months that I wanted to share it with you.

Professionally I have been working on two important projects, the first of which is my website.

It all started when I met with my web-designer Andy for lunch and we talked about the stats from my site. If I am honest I had perhaps been a little complacent about the website, seeing it as something that needed to be there rather than a lead generation tool. But when Andy talked to me about the amount of visitors to my site, how long they were staying and click through rates, I began to realise that I was disappointed and perhaps should pay a bit more attention to it.

So after some work we have now launched our new website and I would love to know what you think, so please check out the rest of the site and let me know!

The second big project I have been working on has been the design of my book.  Thanks to your votes I am pleased to announce that the winning cover was:

Not only was it the cleanest and simplistic image, but also to me the stones represent the building of a team. All the ‘pieces’ are different shapes and sizes and it is about bringing them all together in a balanced way.

Keep your eyes peeled for announcements about the launch of the sale of the book!

The final piece of news that I would like to share with you is more personal.  Earlier this month my partner Samm and I signed the paperwork to convert our Civil Partnership into a marriage.  That means I am now officially Mrs Joanne Wharam and I can honestly say I have never been happier.

A new chapter is just starting in my life and I feel really excited.

What new and exciting things do you have planned?
