Welcome To Swagger And Soul
This blog started when business author, podcaster & digital marketing expert Nicola Cairncross left England to go and stay for a while in Stoupa, The Mani, Greece. It was a twenty-year-old dream of hers, but it was not a happy move initially, she was grieving.

When Phoebe and I decided to move to Brighton, it took one week to find our ideal flat and just a month to move. How did we do it so fast? people asked. How did we know it was the right move? some said. Well, I got very clear about what I wanted, I made […]
Is everything starting to get to you? Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed, irritable, depressed or perhaps you are simply suffering from a lack of motivation?
