Shaa is the original misfit, maverick and magic maker. 

Despite an Economics degree from The London School of Economics and a proud recipient of an MBE from The Queen, her real talents come from the school of hard knocks.

Growing up on a council estate, Shaa learnt early on, that the only way to level the playing field was to first believe you could. Then go all in on making it happen. 

Shaa’s first book, "Stop Talking Start Doing" became WHSmith's #1 Bestselling Business Book for 14 months in a row, breaking all industry records. 

Shaa has never been one to sit on the fence or rest on her laurels and today her sole mission is to level the playing field and create real social mobility for all.

The Sunday Times recently named her as “One of the top 20 most influential entrepreneurs in the UK”.

    Episode 64 - How To Supercharge Your Energy With Simon Ong

    Episode 64 - How To Supercharge Your Energy With Simon Ong

    Shaa is joined by award-winning coach, motivational speaker, and author of the incredible new book, 'Energize', to talk about his incredible business journey, and how he learned to put the pursuits of his heart and mind above the sometimes superficial achievements we find in the workplace

    KEY TAKEAWAYS  


    Far too often, success comes down to the label we acquire in our careers. But these superficial labels tend to come at the cost of our health, happiness and relationships.
    If you're in a profession that is leaving you unfulfilled, and you wish to jump ship, don't do so without a plan. Build a bridge from one path to the other.
    The world has changed in radical ways. People are being placed at the centre of decisions and culture in business, meaning that the value of individuals is finally being recognised.
    When we experience an event, setback, failure or win, the way we interpret it will be very different from the way that others do. This means that we are always in control of choosing our own perspective, which changes our reality.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Success, for me, was determined by my job title'

    'It kickstarted the longest journey we as humans make - from our heads to our hearts'

    'I felt like Superman without the super powers'

    'You need somewhere, as an entrepreneur, to go and have conversations with other people'

    Episode 61 - Are You Made For More?

    Episode 61 - Are You Made For More?

    Join Shaa and a few of the women from the ‘Made for More ‘cohort as they explore the role of the ‘Made for More’ Community including why it is so special and how it aids them in always pushing for more in business and in life.

     

    They talk about how having a place you can come together and be honest without fear of judgement, can be invaluable in pushing your dreams, goals and life forward. An uplifting and inspirational episode full of support, encouragement and collaboration.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     


    Having people who get you, who understand your struggles and normalise your ambition is imperative to achieve success and retain your mental wellbeing and self-belief. You can share ideas, brainstorm and just talk with understanding and support.
    Our path isn’t unique to us, but it might not be shared with our closest family and friends. So, finding a peer support group can really help you connect with others, to have great conversations, work with you and importantly, celebrate with you too.
    Belief is essential to working towards your goals. If you don’t believe you can do it, then you won’t. This is why it can be a struggle to talk to people who are held back by their own limiting beliefs and fears. You need to be around likeminded individuals who will uplift you not hold you back and this is where the right community can come into play.
    Women aren’t less ambitious, we just tend to have more limiting beliefs due to the way society treats us. Women aren’t less passionate or ambitious, they have just been taught fear and often worry about asking questions.
    Women are always trying to be the best in every area of their lives. We can unfortunately feel like asking for help is a sign of weakness but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Asking people for help is a sign of strength and it also signifies to others that it is ok to ask when you need support.
    Made for More isn’t about learning but implementation. Doing the work that needs to be done for everyone to get and see results.
    It’s important to compete with yourself and collaborate with others. Your only competition should be with yourself, we are all on our own journeys and if we can help each other by collaborating, communicating and supporting one another then we can all help each other win too.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     “It’s not always easy to normalise your ambition”

    “When you have a high, people don’t get it. So, you then start questioning yourself. That self-belief can be really challenging to overcome, especially when they are working alone”

    “When you have a win, it’s a win for everybody…it’s a celebratory win for everybody and if one person can win, they we all can win”

    “It’s completely revolutionised everything in my business, because of all the support I have had in the group”

    “This is your lane and you’re going to slay it your way”

    Episode 60 - Why Women Need More Money

    Episode 60 - Why Women Need More Money

    DESCRIPTION  

    This week, Shaa shares how women over the age of forty are now the fastest growing business demographic, but also the group that is granted the least amount of funding, and why that needs to change.

     KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    Women over 40 are now the fastest growing group of business owners out there. This has come from a greater need to create financial security and freedom for themselves and their families.
    This is the time in life when women have hugely valuable experience, a wide network … and yet, limited funding. 
    Women need a safe space to normalise their ambitions. We need to surround ourselves with like minded women who champion each other.

    BEST MOMENTS 

    'We're going to level up our conversations and normalise our ambitions'

    'We can't change anything by ourselves - we have to do this collectively'

    Episode 59 - How To Make Your Life Easier

    Episode 59 - How To Make Your Life Easier

    This week, Shaa shares how to make your life easier - from the home to your business. Including the Wheel Of Life technique, plus three core practices you can employ immediately, that will ease the burdens in all areas. 

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Many of us feel as though we have had our wings clipped by lockdown over the last couple of years. When we start to feel like prisoners, our life feels overwhelming.

     


    Analyse who you are spending time with. This is a fundamental contributor in making life and business easier. Communities of like-minded people will inspire and provide accountability.

     


    We can refine the tasks ahead by separating them into three columns: Do, Ditch or Delegate. Prioritising the jobs in front of us, and deciding what's truly important, can serve to free up valuable time.

     


    When we feel energised and empowered, it's far easier to face our challenges head on. Surround yourself with the right people, the right tasks, and the right energy and we will be far more productive.


    BEST MOMENTS

    'If you're anything like me then the last few years have made you feel like a prisoner in your own home'

    'It's not about learning something new. It's about implementing what we already know'

    'If it's been on your to-do list for more than two weeks, just ditch it!'
