    Ep 52: Reading your body for better life + biz outcome

    Ep 52: Reading your body for better life + biz outcome

    By reading your body's signals, you can fine-tune your life and business for optimal outcomes. In this episode you will learn:

    1. How our body's somatic responses can inform our intuition, emotions, and decision making

    2. The questions to ask to help you best discern your next steps

    "Rather than using our sight, our hearing, our touch, our taste, all of those sorts of senses, it's about using the senses that we feel on the inside, which is very much connected to our intuition."

    Today's episode discusses how to read your body better for life and business outcomes. I'm a big believer in using somatic responses to guide my decisions. However, I often find myself struggling to interpret those responses correctly. This can lead to making poor decisions that can have negative consequences for my life and business. I'm hoping that today's episode will help you to sharpen your skills of discernment so that you can make better choices going forward.

    Ep 51: The modern day entrepreneur

    Ep 51: The modern day entrepreneur

    In a world where technology and creativity are increasingly entwined, being a modern day entrepreneur requires mastering both skillsets - something that didn't used to be the case. In this episode, you will learn:

    1. The skills that modern-day entrepreneurs need in order to be successful

    2. The importance of claiming your identity as a creative individual

    3. The practice of creativity, and how it can help you get seen online

    "In order to do that, you need to put your creative hat on. You need to redefine yourself as a creative. You need to make sure that you make time for creativity and for play."

    I was a panelist on the Coffs Coast Creative Industries Visioning, the future networking event. It really got me thinking about entrepreneurship and the skills required to be modern-day startup-preneur, and I wanted to share those thoughts with you here in this episode. Previously start-up entrepreneurs needed skills like being a networker, a really effective networker. They had to get along to a lot of live networking events. They leveraged print media and the artwork was generally handled but the newpaper's graphic design department - not the business owner.

    In this episode, you will learn the following:

    1. The skills that modern day entrepreneurs need in order to be successful

    2. The importance of claiming your identity as a creative individual

    3. The practice of creativity, and how it can help you get seen online

    Ep 50: To share your prices or not?

    Ep 50: To share your prices or not?

    For most of us, a key part of the sales process requires is to let potential clients know our prices and packages. In your modality training or business coaching groups, you may have been told to have them on your website or not have them on your website for different reasons. Perhaps your coach or trainer has a system that they use and teach that favours one or the other. Before you decide what's best for your business you want to listen to this episode.

    There are pros and cons to advertising prices and not showing them at all before a discovery or sales call.

    "I definitely think that the answer is very individual. But I think it's always wise to go in with eyes wide open because often I'll have new clients who perhaps have had other advice where somebody has really given a hard and fast way that they should advertise or not advertise their prices."

    In this episode, I talk about the benefits of both advertising and not advertising your prices publicly- particularly for those in the first few years of their business. You'll get a chance to consider what's right for you and what feels most authentic and aligned.

    Ep 47: Planning for a happy home run

    Ep 47: Planning for a happy home run

    Following on from last week's popular episode on the current challenges in growing an online business, this week I'm talking about the 4 key considerations as we approach the end of the year and the planning I recommend ensuring that you hit a happy home run.

    The key areas for consideration & planning I discuss are:


    Time away from your biz
    Income needed
    Content continuity
    Your Offers

    You might be surprised to know that with a little planning you can take time off and continue to support your clients with free and paid offers. The summer is also a time when many people are re-assessing their direction in life and so as a coach, healer or consultant this is a great time to grow your audience as people have more time to 'browse' the internet. Granted that people are also feeling burnt out but it's not a time to disappear and go cold on your peeps. A little planning now will go a long way in months to come!
