    218: The Politics of Human Design - Doreen Brown

    For over a decade, Doreen Brown has helped transform businesses, supporting clients to optimise for more income and impact. After struggling with burnout, Doreen decided to laser focus on how to do business with more ease while still growing my income. That's where Human Design comes in.  It completely changed her life and business. Her yearly profit doubled, and she had more time off to disconnect and enjoy time with her young family and improve her overall health and well-being. Once she began integrating this with my clients and seeing their results, she knew she had been given this mission to share it with more people. Now, Doreen aims to help as many female entrepreneurs as possible discover the best way to have a wildly successful business that supports their dreams & desires using her Optimised Operating System.

    In this show you can learn:

    1. What human design is.

    2. How can we use it in our lives and businesses? A few examples, please.

    3. Is there limits or areas where it is not a solution for us?

    4. How do you make human design work for you these days?

    5. Can human design work with other philosophies?

    6. Takeaway: What is your final message for us on The Politics of Human Design?

She is an award-winning businesswoman, experienced CEO/Founder/ Board Member, recognised industry expert and women in business speaker who was recently recognized as being in the Top 25 Businesswomen in QLD.

Along her journey, she has acquired other businesses, founded an online beauty company Lulu and Lipstick that she sold in 2016, where just prior her makeup were in the gift bags for the 2016 Oscars.

Her favourite saying driving her in business is " Don't Play Small."

    Hear from Fleur on:

    1. A business exit strategy is a plan that a founder or owner of a business makes to sell their company or share in a company, to other investors or other firms. Initial public offerings (IPOs), strategic acquisitions, and management buyouts are among the more common exit strategies an owner might pursue. What has been your experience in these areas with your former businesses?

    2. So how do you decide it's time to sell or leave?

    3. What if you are not sure you want to go but are being forced?

    4. Are there some common errors as one exit?.

    5. Do brokers come into this process for selling a business or are there other ways this works for all parties, so it is streamlined?

    6. Takeaway: What is your final message on The Politics of Business Exits?

    216: The Politics of Healthy Weight loss - Dr Lucy Burns

    216: The Politics of Healthy Weight loss - Dr Lucy Burns

    Dr Lucy Burns is a smart woman! As a GP and lifestyle medicine doctor and has extensive training in psychological medicine. She ran a successful medical weight loss clinic which was the inspiration for creating an online learning platform with Dr Mary Barson called Real Life Medicine. They help people reclaim their health and weight by addressing the physiology and the psychology of weight management. We met through a course creator group called Her Empire Builder and she also has business smarts, let's add. Her experience running a medical weight loss clinic was the inspiration behind creating an online learning platform embracing and teaching low carb real food lifestyle and mindset change.Lucy's passion is navigating the often-fraught landscape of diet culture and societal glorification of thinness with the body positivity movement and the very real need for weight loss and its impact on health for a large proportion of our population.

    In this podcast, Lucy shares her views on:

    1. How do you define healthy weight loss?

    2. Diets don't work long-term. How can we be more realistic about our weight loss and gains and not get overwhelmed by so-called "rules" that may undermine our ability to maintain our weight?

    3. Weight loss is big business and a health matter. Having adopted a low-carb way of eating yourself some years ago, and losing weight, is that the core of your advice? Or does it differ for varied people?

    4. What role does mindset play in not just healthy weight loss but overall lifestyle? Your programs include mantras and hypnosis. How does that work?

    5. Takeaway: What is your final message for us on The Politics of Healthy Weight Loss?

    Ep 213: The Politics of Business Visibility - Deborah Szabo

    Ep 213: The Politics of Business Visibility - Deborah Szabo

    Ever wondered what makes a business visible? I don't mean the likes on their socials; I mean household name kind of visible or a known leader in their niche. Today I chat to Deb Szabo, a business owner who specialises in this and for 30 years has leveraged her expertise to help build and scale businesses through innovative marketing. She now shares her business-building methods using content marketing, video and organic social media in her online courses and coaching. Deb also facilitates Video Marketing for Social Media, and online coaching to build business and personal brands online. When Deb isn't working, she can be found cooking, bike riding, or traveling to wine destinations with a video camera in hand. Her motto is simple: It's not who has the best product or service, it's about who talks the loudest. I wonder if that always works. Let's find out the best ways to shine.

    Hear from Deborah on:

    1. What are the top three ways a business or a leader can become highly and positively visible in all the right ways in 2024?

    2. Is digital marketing the #1 way to showcase expertise? Explain your view.

    3. As a video Marketing Coach and Online Marketing Strategist helping people be highly visible online to grow their business, what are the biggest challenges your clients face?

    4. Can you be overexposed and therefore less successful – how can that middle ground be reached so we tune in and not off long term?

    5. How can being digitally visible in a business crisis help? Thinking of say companies like Optus or Qantas?

    6. Takeaway: What is your final takeaway message for us on The Politics of Business Visibility?
