Are You Ready to Grow Your Baby Business?

Are You Ready to Grow Your Baby Business?

Before strategy comes mindset. What do I mean by that? All the stuff about kicking fear in the face. You know, feeling the fear and doing it anyway. Staying in your own lane – killing comparisonitus. Staying centred, getting clear on what it is you want. All good stuff, but in between knowing what it is you want and the strategy part i.e. doing what you have to do to go out and get it, is being ready for it. So the question is are you ready? Because if you’re not, you can bet your last pound that if you do manage to claw your way to whatever it is you desire, once you are there you’ve got a good chance of having your very own Amy Winehouse moment and royally fucking it up. In therapy we call it secondary gain. So we look for conscious or subconscious reasons a person may want to stay stuck in the pattern they are paying you a handsome sum to get them out of. For example: The overweight person, who had to fend off unwanted attention when she was a young girl who is still stuck in the place in of, ‘if I get thin, something bad is going to happen.’ Or the woman who wants great success in her business, but fears that it will take her away from her children and family.

Are you on Track?

Are you on Track?

I’m sure I’m not the only person who is having trouble believing that the first three months of the year are already over and done with. Gone, just like that, over and out. And how are you feeling about how quickly time as flown? Do you remember your New Year aspirations for work and for home? Are you on track? Did you even have a track? One of the things that has made the most fundamental difference to my business over the last 18 months is to take what’s out of my head and put it down on paper. For me, not even electronically will do. I have to go old school and use pen and paper and apparently there’s lots of evidence to suggest that if we want our goals to stick, and to realize our vision, paper and pen is still where it’s at, but I digress.   At the end of last year, I started to hear a lot about the benefits of approaching your year in 90 day planning cycles. And then measuring your progress over a period of a couple of weeks in order for you to assess how well you were doing in relation to the bigger picture. Picking just three things to focus on that you knew if you did consistently you would hit your overall target. Now while I didn’t get this quite right, having a 90...

How to Manifest Anything you Want in 3 Easy Steps?

How to Manifest Anything you Want in 3 Easy Steps?

What struck me on the call with my mastermind ladies last night and in the group over the last couple of weeks, is how many of them are talking about their ideal clients walking through the door. And their ability to manifest more of what they want with ease. So what’s the deal? Why are they manifesting what they want left, right and centre? Of course the answer is mindset and a lack of resistance to what they believe is possible for them. Some of you will remember I went on a two day retreat at the end of February, where we looked at business, life and what we wanted to do in order to help us create our dreams. It became super clear that in order to do the things I love and only I can do, i.e. write content, support my communities, update and create new products I need help with the other parts of my business. The stuff I’m crap at and other people can do with ease, inbox management, technical assistance, social media scheduling and so on. So top of my desire list was a technical virtual assistant. So when I got home I took out my journal and I wrote the following: “I am (notice I’m in present tense, writing as if it’s already happening) working with an amazing VA in my time...
