EP135 | What inspires you? Here's my list.

I have to admit I’ve been pretty chilled the last couple of months. My body is refusing to work the way I’ve done for years. And The Great Reset of 2020 is becoming a very personal great reset.

I am, or were, very driven. Back in January I even set an ambitious task of doing a daily podcast. But I’ve slowed down. And it feels great. 

But it took a few weeks to process a bit of guilt and self judgement. A few weeks of RESETTING. Oh, don’t get me wrong, my core personality is still there. My core driver is still Vision (because I’m a VisionMaker WowArchetype)

But this reset is sharpening that vision. And the method to that vision isn’t hijacking my nervous system anymore. (Which, btw, goes to prove even more that your wow archetype can evolve, but that’s a discussion for another time!)

All week I’m sharing what makes me tick. And One of the things that is sharpening is about what really matters to me. So here goes… they...

EP134 | Woes & Wows (aka are you afraid of the dark?)

'Change your mindset' and 'Renew your thinking' sounds like great advice. But is it? In this episode I challenge the self-help industry's focus on 'being positive' and 'being grateful'. Is it really as helpful, and why doesn't it always work?  Part of my Great Reset series of episodes.

EP131 | Why Productivity Tools Don't Work - with Jo Bendle

What happens when you outgrow your goals? In this episode Jo Bendle shares her 'what next' after seeing her dream of successful location independent dream come true. A lively chat about about why what we've been taught about productivity doesn't work, the power of mindset work and how to have clarity. This episode is a smorgasbord of ah-ha's.

The official bit:
Jo is a Productivity + Empowerment Coach helping female business owners do more, be more and have more while working less. She helps women navigate the mindset struggles that hold them back from living a bigger life, hook into their future vision and equip them with the productivity tools they need to get there.

Highlights:
"I knew very very clearly that this wasn't what I was meant to be doing but it was a stepping stone... I share that because I wish people would give themselves permission to see where it (life) takes them."

"You don't HAVE to have all the clarity at the start!"

"For me there is no point giving them masculine...

EP127 | How To Network Online Without Feeling Icky

A casual chat with Monica Perez Burnett about being real and enjoying the 'networking' you do online. There is so much pressure to do things that our personalities might not be comfortable - this episode discusses this - that emotion and nervousness is okay. 

Some of the great quotes from this episode include:

"Don't be afraid to be human. We need more than ever now to have that human touch. We're sick of the polish. We're sick of the professionalism- We want reality."

"What we actually take away from a presentation is the energy and who the person is.
We often, after the live, don't remember all your perfect three points.
All your crafted curated quotes. We remember that that person went live and that they were real."

"Business is not about your product, at all. Business is about how you can bring the extra, how you can bring the legacy building part into someones life THROUGH your product. What they want is you, if you're not willing to bring you to the table. It's going to be very...

EP126 | Empty Chairs & Getting To Six Figures

How do you get to six figures with your business? It's the same thing that worked 30 years ago.

When someone starts out in business, often their first income milestone is 'six figures'. Most business owners make the mistake of focusing on the product or service, but as you'll see in this podcast, 'customer acquisition' (aka marketing) should be the focus.
