Did you know that at least 90% of businesses fail in the first few years? And it's nothing to do with the economy, the ever changing social media algorithm or who is in office in politics but it has everything to do with the 'inner office' of the business owner themselves.
Recently, I was honoured to be interviewed by Better Homes & Gardens' resident architect, TV celebrity Peter Colquhoun on his Better Ideas Podcast! We are chatting about how to be productive and what you need to make it work when you’re working from a home office.
Fun Fact - I actually turned up to be interviewed about setting up a home office (given my background in architecture and entrepreneurism), but Peter was fascinated about the entrepreneurial mindset... so I ended up being on two podcasts (I'll let you know when the second one, all about Tips for a great home office, is released).
Enjoy the chat!

Merilyn: sometimes I forget to think abundantly.
Anxiety: but you aren’t abundant, you still have needs.
Merilyn: gosh, you are very needy aren’t you! We are extremely abundant. Just look around.
Merilyn: I see you’re not convinced. What if I tell you nice things. Would that help?
Anxiety: Maybe. But please don’t try any woo woo on me.
Merilyn: [takes anxiety by the shoulders, smiles and looks in her shadowy eyes.]
I know that you, dear anxiety, just want to keep me safe. You aren’t the devil. You aren’t the enemy. You aren’t even the mean girl.
Merilyn: truth is, whenever I have a need, it always is met. But you find it easier to say, ‘I’m broke’ or ‘I’m strapped’. But anxiety, dear anxiety, just listen to your words: Broke. Strapped. That’s not me.
Anxiety: but I’m just trying to protect you.
Merilyn: yes I know. I appreciate that. I forget that too. When I...
One thing you might not know about me is that I LOVE group coaching!
In all my 20+ years of working with business & people development, I've found group coaching to be, hand on heart, THE most effective method of growth and learning.
Another thing you might not know about me is that I moonlight as a group coach for David Siteman Garland's Accelerator Program. Which means I coach small groups of people for 90 days in creating an online course, from scratch.
I've helped people create courses about fertility, painting, career change, divorce recovery, meditation, piano competitions and even cancer blood tests!
I love it.
Helping people put their knowledge and experience (and passions) into a format that truly makes the world a better place.
Recently, I was interviewed by David Siteman Garland himself on his podcast out the power of group coaching.

Where has my time gone?
I don’t have the time.
I’m soooo busy.
Too much to do and not enough time to do it!
Do any of these statements come out of your mouth often?
If they do, then you are probably time-poor!
And our beliefs about time are way more powerful than any productivity app!
So having clarity around how we think about time and how we 'waste' time can help us have more energy and be way more productive.
And that's what I'm chatting about in this week's video.
What on earth can dog training teach us about getting over our fears?
