When I decided to do a random act of kindness every day for a year, I had absolutely no idea how it would end up changing my life.
When Maura died, it left a hole in thousands of peoples hearts. Over 4,500 turned up to pay their respects at her funeral and it was then, seeing the miles and miles of people that I knew if I lived the rest of my life living how she lived hers – I could be proud in knowing I’d made a positive difference to the world.

So for me, I will continue to excite and engage people in why having a job you love is one of the most important factors in your life.
So I ask this question, do you love your job?
