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!

EP84 | Productivity should be messy

Life is always messy, and now it's every messier. And that's how I love productivity... messy, not perfect. Full of easy and flow, not perfection. This podcast is a chat about taking off the pressure.

EP82 | The Tomato And The To-Do List

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.
 
Listen to this episode to find out how...

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...

EP79 | Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, when I finished university, the world was in recession. It was a bummer, as I'd spent 6 loooong years studying for an Architecture degree.

But there were no jobs.

The recession at the time (early 1990's) meant that most of my graduating class had to delay their dreams. 

Instead, I pivoted in a new direction. 

I went into photography, which led to a move to training & development, which led to me moving to the UK for an international company... which let me to consulting (specifically change management and business strategy)... which ultimately led me to start my own brand.

Massive personal change (i.e trauma, although we don't like to call it that) led to a wake up call. And that wake up call stirred in me to start my own business. 

In a recession!

I also remember clearly the crash in 2008. 

I remember clearly the emotional overwhelm and stress that many went through. I remember clearly my husband being one of the first wave of people to...

EP78 | Ghosts, Queens & Mi5 - with author & historian Mel Backe-Hansen

Today’s episode is a welcome break from all the news. I’m chatting with Melanie Backe-Hansen, who is a House Historian. Her stories are fascinating, as she’s unearthed the histories of hundreds of homes - from Queen Elizabeth I, to MI5 early origins, to ghostly stories of previous owners visiting the current owners. A delightful and fascinating episode.  

Her new book, A House through Time, co-authored with historian and presenter David Olusoga, is out soon.
