@flexnib (Constance Weibrands) treat colleagues and staff as you would like to be treated.
@sirexkat (Kathryn Greenhill) Remember people u tread on on way up will get you on the way down.
@MissSophieMac (Sophie McDonald) Be enthusiastic, passionate and find the positive in everything.
tip #3 plan light
