EP32 | The snakes & ladders of business success - Part 1

The stats tell us that only 10% of businesses will succeed in their first 5 years of operations. So what makes the difference?

EP31 | Don't Push. Let It Unfold Instead.

'Don't push, let it unfold' sounds like the kind of advice that is ideal, yet not very practical - especially when the message out there is often 'push push push' and 'hustle, hustle, hustle'! I work with so many business women who come to me after they have burned out, or become exhausted and are sick of pushing. They crave another way of working and another way of thinking. If you truly want to be leading your world (and not dragged along by it), then mastering the art of 'trust' is crucial. This chat is designed to get you to rethink the way you do business.

EP30 | 3 Reasons Why I Never Joined A Mastermind

I never thought I needed a mastermind. After all I had over 25 years in business, so what more could I gain? How wrong I was. Even though I had all that experience and was helping others build their businesses, I had NO idea how much I needed peer support through a mastermind. Joining a mastermind enabled my new business to leap from 25k to 125k in one year! In this podcast I share what my top excuses were and how you don't need to make the same mistakes I did!

EP20 | The Three-W Approach to Marketing

We've all heard of the 'know, like and trust' factors of marketing. But really? Does it really mean endless social media posting? In this episode I chat about my three marketing 'w' approach, which has helped even the most introverted of business owners be more confident in marketing. You'll discover that marketing is about the wave, the woo and the wed! If we aren't making the income we want, it's usually because we just aren't 'waving' and 'wedding' enough... listen and enjoy the challenge.

EP19 | The Surprising Power of One Thing

I see so many 'new' business owners juggling multiple businesses - and usually none of them are making anywhere near the income they could be. They use the excuse 'Well, I'm a multi-passionate, so I'm doing lots of things and hoping that one of them will take off'. Listen to this short chat about what to do if you are juggling and struggling (or justifying) focusing on ONE thing - you might just be surprised at my suggestions!

EP14 | A tale of three bees

There are many types of bees and they are vital little critters in the health of our world... but what on earth what have they got to do with building a business? Well, my clients know that I talk about three particular bees all the time to help them really 'get' the business building analogy.

See which bees you identify with...

The first is the HONEY BEE.

Now this one is described as a very social bee. I think of this bee as the marketing and client contact bee. Important in any business. This is the bee that is making Instagram stories all day long! and certain personalities thrive being the Honey Bee.

Then there's the WORKER BEE.

This one gets the jobs done. Ticks off the to-do's. Does the work. Builds the website. Sends the emails. Does the admin. You get the picture. It's often the primary role of most business owners and they can get stuck here and it can stop them growing. Doing doing doing.

And finally there is the Queen Bee. She is responsible for the growth of the hive...

EP13 | Kevin Costner was wrong!

Sorry Kevin, your Field Of Dreams philosophy just doesn't work with marketing! 

So many women meet with 'resistance' when it comes to marketing, especially those who have yet to make the leap from side-income to abundance. They have the 'build it and they will come' mentality, sometimes without even realising it. They stay in hobby-mode for way too long and it comes from a distorted view of marketing.  This resistance is rooted in fear. Fear of visibility, fear of rejection, fear of failure. And it doesn't help when every second ad that follows us around on social media is promising us the marketing 'hacks of 7 figure entrepreneurs'. 

In this podcast I chat about a completely different way to view marketing - and it's got nothing to do with any latest method or sales funnel. Listen and let your whole mindset about marketing be challenged.
