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!

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...

EP64 | Step up - it's time to lead

It's not business as usual right now. We can't act as if nothing has happened, nor is it time to be afraid. Today I start a series called Time To Lead - a call to not shrink back in fear, but to step up. #timetolead

EP63 | A rant about round pegs and square holes

It's never been a better time to have an online business (as long as you have toilet paper supplies!) - working from home definitely has it's advantages. But one of the things that really ticks me off about the online business is people feeling a failure because their online guru's system didn't work for them.

I see people spending thousands and thousands of dollars on courses and membership sites, only to end up frustrated, unsupported and broke... their dreams ravaged and their confidence sitting in the ER waiting room. This episode is my rant about that.

EP61 | Think before you crush it (sorry Gary V)

The phrase 'crushing it' has become part of the entrepreneurs lexicon. It's sounds great when Gary V says it, but should you?

So many of the hashtags we share and the words we use are just everyone following everyone else - and incredibly masculine. But the answer isn’t to adopt powder-pink as your brand colours or use the hashtag #bossbabe either.

The businesses that are going to survive any kind of big or small economic shake up are the ones who aren’t me-too businesses, but are leading by doing things differently. Business isn't a war, a competition or a hunt.

This episode challenges us to think and behave differently - as women and men, and not just blindly follow the rules of patriarchy.

EP51 | Lead your world

You've probably heard me use the phrase LEAD YOUR WORLD a lot.
I don't mean lead THE world, although there's definitely a leadership crisis in much of the world right now.
 
But being a leader of your world is at the heart of what I do. Because unless we can be the leader of our own lives we can't really successfully create our own incomes... or be the leader of our own businesses.
 
When I say 'world' I mean that sphere of influence that you have on the outside - are you inspiring, influencing, empowering those around you? And I also mean, the inner world as well - are you leading your thoughts, your emotional reactions, your health, you wellbeing?
 
The opposite to leading your world is being a follower or a reactor to life. We are all naturally well trained at doing that. Just think of social media. How much time do you spend following what everyone else does, and not being your own unique self leading your won way. I'm not saying that following is wrong, as we can...
