EP131 | Why Productivity Tools Don't Work - with Jo Bendle

What happens when you outgrow your goals? In this episode Jo Bendle shares her 'what next' after seeing her dream of successful location independent dream come true. A lively chat about about why what we've been taught about productivity doesn't work, the power of mindset work and how to have clarity. This episode is a smorgasbord of ah-ha's.

The official bit:
Jo is a Productivity + Empowerment Coach helping female business owners do more, be more and have more while working less. She helps women navigate the mindset struggles that hold them back from living a bigger life, hook into their future vision and equip them with the productivity tools they need to get there.

Highlights:
"I knew very very clearly that this wasn't what I was meant to be doing but it was a stepping stone... I share that because I wish people would give themselves permission to see where it (life) takes them."

"You don't HAVE to have all the clarity at the start!"

"For me there is no point giving them masculine...

EP123 | The real villain of productivity isn't what you think

A few weeks ago I shared in Episode 117 about the parasympathetic experiment I was doing on myself. I shared how whilst I’m great at taking time out for fun etc, I’m not often getting into that rested parasympathetic state. So as I was digging deep, doing the inside out work, something else was coming up recently and I thought I’d devote this episode to talking about it... I’ve had what I’m calling a capacity problem. Listen to this episode to see if you have this too.

EP90 | My Shock (Big) Productivity Obstacle

I shocked myself this morning. I try to spend the first 30-60 minutes of every day with a coffee and a bit of self-reflecting. Today, as I was 'scanning' for resistance and stuff I needed to clear in my unconscious, I hit the real (and shocking) reason why I sometimes get sick - and it's got nothing to do with the Coronavirus. Enjoy today's chat.

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...
