EP89 | Making lemonade

Who are you listening to?  Are you listening to the voices that say, ‘we are in a recession, heading to a depression, woe is me’? Or are you hearing the message that it’s time to lead? Do you see this as a massive opportunity to finally create or grow that business idea. 
 
It’s time to start that online business you’ve been wanting to start. 
Or if you already have a business, pivot to meet the problems of your clients RIGHT NOW.

The world is your oyster. Are you leading your world right now? Or just sitting on the sidelines. We've been given lemons. Make lemonade.

EP87 | It's a man's world (or is it?) - interview with Kara Diane Festa

Now this interview is fascinating. I'm chatting with Kara Diane Festa about the masculine and feminine styles of operating in business. She is a now a business coaching who was an engineer and owner of a 8 figure engineering and environmental business for over 20 years. So she well knows how to operate as a women in a man's world. She now is dedicated to supporting other women in business and STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and math, aka “traditionally male-dominated fields”). Kara believes that the old ways of "doing" life and business need to make way for a more compassionate, conscious, connected way of being. 

We talk about:

  • Masculine and feminine working styles - how do we navigate this.
  • Work-life balance - is it real?
  • Being vulnerable and jumping from the known into the unknown world of starting one's own business.

EP86 | Stop Trying To Find Your Passion

When looking for life direction, the most common advice is 'go find what you are passionate about and do that'. I don't agree with this. This episode explores why.

EP85 | Are you (really) ready for failure?

What do you do when things don’t quite turn out as they should? On this episode, I’m chatting about failures and the angst of ‘when is it my turn’? And what you can put in place to help.
 
P.S. and I also deal with that pressure to ‘be happy’ all the time!

Here's a little break (and fun) from the Coronavirus.
 
You’ve probably all heard of the Pomodoro Technique.
 
A gimmicky, productivity hack to get stuff done.
 
And it does exactly what it says on the tin: helps you focus and get stuff done...
 
But... it's way more than that.
 
This retro, Italian kitchen timer can also help you deal with those nagging fears.

EP81 | Can the real influencers please stand up

Over the last few years a new job title as emerged… ‘Influencer’ 

Born out of Instagram. 

The hashtag #influencer has over 20.6 million posts. 

20.6 million! 

We see it in people’s bios, ‘I’m an influencer’. 

But seriously, saying that is like saying, ‘I have influence, and you don’t’ 

Bollocks.  

In actual fact, even the most introverterted person… 

The term ‘influencer’ is a compliment that is given by others TO you, not a job title, status, position or something for your Instagram Bio!  Its not a self ascribed term. 

It actually makes my skin crawl when I see someone stating ‘influencer’ and it makes me pity them even more when they have only 134 followers and every picture is of them wearing some kind of designer label they hope will notice and make them their brand ambassador! 

I know what you mean though. An Instagram Influencer is...

EP80 | A lesson about resilience

What fuels the success of leaders? Resilience 

What if all the things that happened TO you were happing FOR you. 

Those 'failures' and 'set backs' and 'delays' and 'traumas' and 'disappointments'... what if these were the making of you?  

What if (and this sounds harsh, but hear me out) they were there to help you get to where you really want to go? 

To teach you? To shape you? To evolve and transform you into the person you really want to be? 

If you see your past as wisdom then you've passed the test of resilience. 

But if you are still seeing much failure and set back, can you think of what they are trying to tell you?

What would turn what you are going through right now into wisdom 

And here’s an exercise I’d love you to do. Go sit somewhere quiet, and ask yourself this question. 

It’s 5 years from now. You are looking back at 2020 and all the great things that came out of if, both for you personally and your business and...
