    Times are Changing for Holistic Business Matters

    Times are Changing for Holistic Business Matters

    It’s hard to believe my little podcast is 100 episodes old this week. I'm very proud of what I’ve achieved, but I also know it's time to shake things up. It’s been an interesting experience with lots of lessons and I thought today, I’d share some of them with you along with a big decision I've made.

    How to Consolidate Your Marketing

    How to Consolidate Your Marketing

    I love marketing and I can happily spend hours creating images, writing articles, and producing podcasts amongst other things. I’m known for being consistent with my content and for being productive.
    Whist creating marketing is a happy place for me – it must have good reasoning behind it. And if I’m honest – for me, it hasn’t always been that way!
    Spending time marketing and working on the wrong things is a great way to keep yourself busy, but it’s also a way of procrastinating and stopping yourself from doing the important work.
    You need to be focussing on the activities that work and attract clients.
    What time and budget do you have available?
    What marketing activities did you do last year?

    Making Your Holistic Business Vision Come to Life

    Making Your Holistic Business Vision Come to Life

    You don’t need to know all the answers now, and your vision will evolve and change as you do. But it will give you direction and help you to plan your business.

    Reflecting on the Last Year in Your Holistic Business

    Reflecting on the Last Year in Your Holistic Business

    We’re coming up to the end of another year and it’s the perfect time to review how it’s gone for you. Spending time reflecting on last year will help you to wrap up the year and move your focus to what you want to achieve next year.
    When you think about your past year - how was it?
    Running your own business is a huge personal development exercise and it can be a rollercoaster ride. It’s easy to get caught up focusing on what went wrong and miss out on the good bits altogether.

Always sage advice

Helen gets the issues with marketing a holistic business and she always has strategies to overcome them. She also understands why practitioners may feel confused or overwhelmed with marketing and metaphorically holds your hand to work through blocks. This is my favourite marketing podcast and I look forward to Thursdays so I can listen to the new podcast as it’s released. Thank you Helen for all the work you do to support us practitioners.

Kate Hogan ,

Fantastic accessible advice for practitioners

This is fast becoming one of my go-to podcasts. Helen covers topics that are relevant for me as a Therapist and gives real accessible advice in such a grounded and supportive way. I always come away uplifted and motivated, highly recommend!

Gems for practitioners

I am glad to have found Helen’s podcast at this challenging time. Helen has a calm and professional manner as she guides us through steps we can take to help our businesses. She is very experienced both as a practitioner herself and as a business woman. She even seems to enjoy the business aspect and is keen to give us plenty of little gems. Thank you Helen. Love the 6 ways to stop procrastinating.
