    17. Money Blocks - The unspoken thoughts about money that may be holding you back

    There's a story in all of our heads about money. It's only when we become aware of that story will we be able to challenge it and make changes.

    This week, Eadaoin and Claire talk about their own evolving relationships with money. And how, for better or worse, your "Money Story" can influence the decisions you make in growing your businesses.

    ===

    Highlights include:


    Will making-money turn me into an a$$hole?
    Money = power? Really?
    When to ask for help and when to pay for it?

    Did your good work and health habits fly out the window during lockdown?

    Did your good work and health habits fly out the window during lockdown?

    Are you feeling unmotivated, unfocused, and a bit blaaaah! This week Eadaoin and Claire chat about the struggle to get back into the groove after so much change and uncertainty.

    Talking points include:


    Is going with the flow OK or will we drift further off track?
    It's easy to be down about lost time and missed opportunities - but it's not your fault.
    We really have to cut ourselves some slack - tomorrow is another day.

    15. How can we be anti-racist as small business owners?

    15. How can we be anti-racist as small business owners?

    We are small, independent business owners and we have a responsibility to educate ourselves, speak up, and act against racism. Now. And from now on.  Even if it feels uncomfortable.

    This week Éadaoin and Claire talk about owning a business as an anti-racist, what that might actually mean, seeking resources, and what it means to do the right thing. 

    Some talking points include:


    Feeling the anxiety and resistance and finding a way to start the work.
    This is work that must be more long-lasting than a trending hashtag.
    This is the very beginning of a lifetime of work for all of us.

    14. Getting new clients online - how can we make it easy and obvious?

    14. Getting new clients online - how can we make it easy and obvious?

    Reaching out online to people you wish to serve, is sometimes easier said than done. This week Éadaoin and Claire talk about making things easier for ourselves as well as making it an easy, obvious choice for potential clients to sign up, enquire and buy.

    Highlights include:

    Having loads of ideas is great but reinventing things for the sake of it, is a waste of your precious time 

    "Sell on the outcome, sign on the details", how your process, even if it's amazeballs, won't inspire action

    Truly knowing who you want to reach will free you up to speak to them in a way they like and understand

    13. Serving your clients in the best way possible, without screwing yourself over!

    13. Serving your clients in the best way possible, without screwing yourself over!

    We want to serve our clients in the best way possible but that doesn't mean agreeing with everything they say. This week Éadaoin and Claire talk about being a better guide for clients.

    Highlights include:


    Seeing if the spaghetti sticks can help us to just get started, but we have to learn from what we try
    Sometimes a difficult experience teaches us more and helps us to refine our services 
    The key to serving your clients well comes from a deep understanding of their needs (and getting the reps!)
