    Catherine explains the underpinning principles of a leveraged lifestyle and how to go about moving your life to be intentional and leveraged giving you the freedom and choice to live a life you love.

    This is a great opportunity to hear not only about the fundamental elements of a leveraged lifestyle but also how you can use them to create the right leveraged lifestyle for you.

    Mastering your emotions – there are positive and negative emotions learning to master your emotions is about mastering and letting go of the emotions that are not serving you
    Intentional living – this is about being truly intentional about how you live your life, what you bring into your life, how you spend your time and finances.
    Playing to your strengths – it’s about doing what you do best, getting in your flow, sharing along the way and delating and outsourcing everything else.
    Leveraging your network, time and money  – these are key areas in your life to leverage. the people you know can be a great resource and leveraging your time and money will help you to make the most of it and what you want to get from it

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘When you are having moments that are tough it’s likely you are not living in alignment with your values’

    ‘You need to have the tools to design your own life, a life that is chosen by you’

    From £50 to Thriving Ebay & Etsy Business - Interview with eCommerce Business Owner Emma Dee

    From £50 to Thriving Ebay & Etsy Business - Interview with eCommerce Business Owner Emma Dee

    Catherine revisits one of the most downloaded episodes from the last 2 years with guest  Emma Dalton who created the freedom she wanted by moving from the corporate world and creating a successful eCommerce business.

    Emma discusses the turning point and what it actually takes to get started with no money and create the type of business you want.

    They discuss finding your passion and why all the knowledge and experience you have previously has value and can be transferred to new ventures.

    There are always numbers that you have to know and it’s vital that even as a small business you plan as if you are a big business so the right systems and processes are in place, making it easier to successfully grow. This is a great insight with lots of advice on how to get started in business and design the life you want.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    I didn’t have the money to set up a business but I did have an overriding belief that everything will work out if you work hard enough.
    The essential numbers are turnover and profit margin growth month on month.
    The fundamentals are -  what profit am I making now and is it growing month on month?
    I started with around £50 and I focus on sourcing women’s unique fashion pieces through charity shops, online and car boot sales.
    If you want to get started, declutter your own wardrobe and treat it as a business. Use it as a learning opportunity to find out about the photography, whether you want to use the auctions or buy it now to sell and to gain experience of the whole selling process.
    My business moved to the next level when I took a conscious decision to review and put in place the right processes.
    I’ve leveraged my eBay business activity down to 3 days and increased my income by 3x through processes.
    Even if you are a small business plan as if you are a big business. if you have the right processes in place at the start it makes it much easier as you grow.
    Blocking time and being very structured about how I use my time has been the key to be able to use my time efficiently.
    The hardest part of business is saying ‘no’
    As an entrepreneur you know you are on a journey and moving ahead but it’s not always possible to see the destination all the time.
    I’ve always wanted a flexible living life and I want to have integrity in what I do.
    Find the thing the brings you joy; design the life you want and be honest about what you want.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Through effective leveraging when I have downtime for me it’s all for me’

     I’ve become much more aware of my values since being self-employed.

    ‘You can just start and you don’t buy any new stock until what you have is sold so there is no new money involved’

    What You Love(Are Good at) Can be Paid For And What The World Needs!

    What You Love(Are Good at) Can be Paid For And What The World Needs!

    Cast your mind back to Episode #033 of Leveraged Lifestyle; Catherine explains how finding your Ikigai is an important part of leveraging your lifestyle.

    Catherine has been reflecting on this episode and the content around IKIGAI! Specifically she wanted to preface it and revisit, to open a discussion with you the listeners (so make sure you get in touch and let Catherine know your thoughts and comments)

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Ikigai, the 4 concentric circles

    The first circle is what you love, the second circle is what the world needs, the third circle is what you can be paid for and the fourth circle what you are good at.

    Overlapping these are passion, mission, profession and vocation. In the centre of the circles is Ikigai.
    Ikigai

    The Japanese believe that everyone has an Ikigai and it is the reason we want to jump out of bed in the morning.

    There is no secret formula for finding happiness but there is one key ingredient the ability to reach a state of flow and through that state to have the optimal experience to find the Ikigai.
    Finding your flow
    Challenging tasks

    Completing tasks that are just out of your comfort zone.

    If tasks are too easy it can lead to apathy. if the task is too hard you may give up

    If it’s just challenging enough that’s where we find our flow.
    A clear objective

    Once the journey has begun its important to keep an overview of the objective but it’s key to focus on the flow.

    When you have a clearly defined objective and focus on the process that’s when you find your flow.
    Concentrate on a single task

    Be in a distraction-free environment. You will feel calmer and have better power of retention and you will be able to achieve flow.

    When we are multi-tasking productivity is less and we are more likely to make mistakes and feel stressed.
    Advantages of finding your flow

    Your mind will be focused on the current task. It enables you to live in the present feel in control. Your mind will become clear and able to deal better with challenges.

    Which activities in your life make you enter flow?

    What do these activities that drive you to flow have in common?

    Why do the activities drive you to flow?
    When you can answer these questions, you will be able to find your Ikigai

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘The more you are in flow the closer you are to your Ikigai’

    ‘Finding that mix of passion, mission, profession’

    ‘More than just systems and processes, Its everything you want to create’

    ‘Feel like there is nothing more important than the single task you have chosen to complete’

    ‘Starting with a ritual and end with a reward’

    ‘Tasks that stretch our skills’
