About Sharon Langford

image Sharon Langford November 2016

For the past 20 years I have been involved in personal development training – helping people to do things better, at work and at home.  My focus has been on goal setting, time management and life planning.

In 2012 I took a large dose of my own medicine and made changes to the way I work.  Having given up development training full time, I now work 3 days a week as an administrator and museum guide at The Aston Martin Heritage Trust (www.amht.org.uk) and spend the rest of the time honing my creative writing skills, gardening and finishing the restoration of my cottage.

I have written two e-workbooks:

  • ‘Planning the Life You Want’
  • ‘Walk! Don’t Run! – how to stay in a job you hate whilst you search for a job you’ll love’.

and have also had many articles published in my professional capacity as a training consultant (see list of titles at the end of this page).  My goal now is to get my creative and fiction pieces published either through magazines or to win some writing competitions.  In February 2013, I secured 2nd place in only the second competition I’d entered… I was delighted!  Since then I’ve been working on numerous short stories and have some ideas for a historical novel… all this whilst attempting to turn a building site back into an inspirational garden!

I am still available to write about personal development and life planning subjects.  If you are interested in commissioning me to write for you, please get in touch using the contact form below and we can discuss your requirements.

I have not blogged for a while but have left some of my blogs from my personal training life here for you to read – as I re-read them I felt inspired and uplifted and hope that they will do that for you too.
