It's great to give something back!  When time is precious running your own businesses, sometimes you have to take your own advice (especially when you are also a Coach!) and block out diary space and commit time to being a volunteer for a few days.  I gave 22+ hours last week to British Dressage (charity) as a volunteer scorer at the National Championships. 

As a horse owner, rider and amateur British Dressage competitor I was lucky enough to spend a lot of this time with Judges - it was a win win for me.  BD needed my time and focus to support using electronic live scoring, in return I soaked up the learning opportunity of being present at such a high profile event, watching our Olympians and professional riders compete.  It was fascinating, tiring and exhilarating.  My diary is cleared for next years volunteering already.
