Building a life and business that 'fit' YOU can be tricky, particularly when what you see others do, market or promote either conflicts with your values or is just plain ridiculous in the context of the life you're actually living. That's why this podcast is short, practical and to-the-point because you've a life to be living and no time to waste on fluff.

It doesn't matter how 'successful' you've already been, so much of what you are applauded for can leave you pretty hollow, and it's too easy to chase after dreams that others have told you you could or should have, instead of checking in with what lights you up and who you were created to be.

Bigger, Bolder, Braver is the podcast which questions the unquestioned 'truths' of how business is done and what success looks like, so you can craft a life that is richer and more satisfying than the 'norms', shoulds and other noise would have you believe is achievable.

As you listen, you'll get a fresh perspective on what is possible for you in business, you'll see the toxic narratives in the current culture for what they are, and you'll be able to fearlessly carve your own path to become you in all your glory.

    Reassessing your goal mid-journey doesn't make you 'weak' or a 'failure'. If you realise when working towards a goal that it no longer serves you, change it! Don't let pride make you continue the course if your efforts would be better redeployed. You're not the same person you were when you set that goal- don't use it as a rod for your own back because you fear what others might think! 
     
    'Savour the journey as well as the outcome'
    Do you remember to do that in your business? Don't be so focused that you forget to lift your head to look at the big picture!

    Quit Self-Deprecating

    The voice you hear most in the world is your own, and when that voice has the drip, drip, drip effect of putting yourself down whether it's defensive or a sort of false humility... it's an issue. It's not helping you, it's not moving you forward. It may in fact be reinforcing the negative things that you already believed about yourself and making the problem worse, making you feel less confident and less able. 
     
    Whatever the gift wrap you put on it, you're putting yourself down and you're doing it in front of other people. And you're likely to be meaner to yourself than the others around you would be, so you're creating wounds that never needed to be there because of your own insecurities. 
     
    When do you find it tempting to put yourself down in front of others? How can you break this habit? How can you receive a compliment without throwing the gift back in the giver's face? 
     
    Listen now for 3 steps to help you break the pattern.

    In this episode I am joined by the awesome Susan Fleming to tackle the 'Science of Beating Burnout'.
     
    "Business was never meant to be toxic to the other areas of life. We have learned the wrong way to work in business." -Susan Fleming
     
    "Your passions are not a distraction. Joy is not an indulgence. They're part of what it's supposed to be like! If you're called to business there should be joy in that."
    - Dr Kathrine McAleese

     
    My special guest Susan Fleming is a Business Alignment Therapist who equips Kingdom Leadership to multiply Legacy, Impact, Freedom, Energy (LIFE) without burnout!

    She obtained her master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University, and became a fully licensed professional counselor in 2014. After 5 years practicing traditional therapy, Susan realized that psychology was only one piece of the healing puzzle. In her own journey she had incorporated the modalities of psychology, neuroscience, Kingdom assignment, mentorship, and coaching. God revealed to her how all of those beautiful pieces fit together, and that became the framework for her signature Multiplier Method.

    Business was never meant to be toxic to the other areas of life, but we have learned the wrong way to work in business. Susan's mission now is to impact entrepreneurial culture with a better way to operate in business. She is all about ditching the hustle and working from God's rest. She believes that His intention for us was always partnership, not performance.

    Susan is a co-author of the #1 International Bestselling book "Just Say No: 14 Transformational Keys to Set Healthy Boundaries in Business and Relationships." She lives in Georgia with her husband, two boys, and her cat named Peter Parker.

    Productivity has a place. There is dignity in work. But too often our worth can get wrapped up in our productivity and that's not what God intended! 
     

    Productivity does not equal worth. Do you believe this? Would those around you agree that you live like you believe this? 
     
    Rest is a GOOD thing. Not a weakness. It can be really hard to do, heck it can feel like the very last thing you have time for, but it was designed by God for you and will lead to you being MORE productive! 
     
    Are you interested in a Retreat for Introverts? Free from pressure to be productive. Rest and be nourished. Enjoy space. Take off those hats you wear everyday and just BE. Listen now to find out more and sign up to the waitlist here to be one of the first to hear the details!

Bigger, bolder and braver!

This is a great listen, Kathrine challenges you think differently and think bigger.
Highly recommended

A must-listen for anyone who wants to be running a values-driven business

As entrepreneurs we are bombarded with so many messages around the ‘shoulds’ when it comes to running our businesses that it’s easy to get caught up in an inauthentic veneer. I love Dr Kathrine’s value-driven approach to running a business with integrity, as she invites us to look within about what really matters. We can so often be left feeling ‘other’ when we don’t match up to the (frequently false) standards of income and social following that many online gurus peddle and the result of that is we keep ourselves small. Dr K raises the rallying cry to get us to be ‘Bigger, Bolder, Braver’ in this incredibly thought-provoking and erudite podcast.

Well worth a listen!!
