    #58: Turn a skill into an award-winning business with Jenni Dunman

    #58: Turn a skill into an award-winning business with Jenni Dunman

    Have you ever wondered how to turn one of the skills you’ve learned in your career or your life into a sustainable business? Perhaps it’s a skill that comes easily to you but others don’t enjoy or find challenging?
    Well, my guest today did just that. I’m joined by Jenni Dunman, founder of award-winning first aid company, Daisy First Aid, which numbers celebrities amongst its clientele.
    In our interview, you’ll hear how a potentially life-threatening event became a light bulb moment which led to Jenni starting her business. You’ll also hear how she pretty quickly realized that her first business model didn’t allow her the flexibility she needed to fit in with her family life and how that led her to switch to a brand new model that initially, she didn’t know anything about.
    I don’t know about you, but I always find it reassuring when I hear that other successful business owners have had to deal with mindset challenges like imposter syndrome, fear of public speaking, networking nerves. And Jenni is so open about how she’s had to face these issues in her own business. Jenni also shares two key things that have changed her life as a business owner (and it’s perhaps not what you’d think), why it’s key to have a strong niche and to know what makes you different from other providers in your industry, why it’s important to focus on one thing and perfect it before you move on to other areas and how her business has had to pivot to respond quickly to the Coronavirus pandemic.

    #57: 2 things you need to be successful

    #57: 2 things you need to be successful

    Hey there, Michelle here and welcome back to The Ideal Life Club Podcast. So today’s episode is for you if you’ve been struggling to hit your goals or to see the success in your life or work that you’d hoped for. I’m going to be unpacking two key things you need and how to get them, PLUS there’s an exciting announcement coming up towards the end of the show too that you’re not going to want to miss.
    Now before we started with this mini-training episode, if you’ve been listening to the show for a while now you likely know a bit about my background and why I’m passionate about helping business owners to feel freaking proud of themselves again in their work AND their life. But we’ve had some new listeners joining us recently, so if you’ll indulge me, I just wanted to take a moment to say a big welcome to the podcast and just share a little bit about me for those of you who DON’T know me. 
    So I’m a business and life coach, author, online course creator and I live here in the UK in a 16th century barn that has more holes than a cheese grater with my husband Stewart, my two kids and four crazy Indian runner ducks. If you’re following me on Instagram you’ll have seen a post from me recently with three things my ducks have taught me about business so, yeah, they’re pretty much a fixture in our lives. Life is good and while I’ve had to work hard over the last 10 years to get where I am today, I do feel blessed and so grateful for all that I have.
    But here’s the thing, it’s not always been that way for me. I know what it’s like to not understand how things got so turned upside down, to feel lost and overwhelmed and to wish I could just make a fresh start. 10 years ago I went from a successful career in marketing working for major household names to not being able to get out of bed in the morning. I was living in China as an expat, dealing with severe birth trauma after the premature birth of our baby daughter, Amelia, and an epidural that didn’t fully work, which led to postpartum depression and me frankly being unable to deal with everyday life.  I was completely overwhelmed and after an intervention led me to therapy I managed to get from non-functioning to functioning but I needed so much more than that. I was determined that I was going to get back on my feet, to become the woman I was before. I needed to do that for myself, for my husband and to be a role model for my baby daughter.
    And that’s where my journey of personal development began, and after I discovered the step by step process to rediscover my inner fire, to reignite my passion for life, I realised that my journey was also my purpose - to help other people take back control and start living THEIR ideal life, to become the person THEY want to be, to start creating success on THEIR terms.
    When clients come to me, they often say that the thing they’re missing in their life, the thing they need most to get back on track or to hit their goals, is confidence. But I know without a shadow of a doubt from my personal journey, that confidence ISN’T the main thing we need to get that kick-started, there are two other things that we need WAAAAY more than that. And I want to share them with you in today’s episode.

    #56: Social media mini-masterclass with Corrie Jones

    #56: Social media mini-masterclass with Corrie Jones

    Hey there, Michelle here and welcome back to The Ideal Life Club Podcast.
    When I started this podcast, this little space in sound waves, it was really important to me that there was content in each and every episode to help you take action in YOUR business. And oh my, today’s episode is the poster child for that vision!
    I’m joined by Corrie Jones, CEO and founder of Social Media Agency Untapped Digital for what might just be one of the most actionable episodes I’ve recorded so far. It's practically a social media masterclass.
    In our interview, you’ll hear about Corrie’s brave jump into running her own business at only 23, how important it was for her to get solid advice from mentors who had been there before her and how age doesn’t have to be a barrier to success in business. But you’ll also hear a TON of top tips and the latest advice on how to use social media in your business, Corrie’s view on whether we should still be selling in the current Covid-19 pandemic, and what you need to be prioritizing in your content strategy right now. This episode is so packed with tips you’re definitely going to want to pause and grab and notebook to take down some killer notes!

    #55: Productivity Tips Part 2 (Covid-19 series)

    #55: Productivity Tips Part 2 (Covid-19 series)

    So if you joined me for the last episode, you’ll remember it was all about how to be more productive while we’re all working from home. And I promised that wasn’t the end of my tips on productivity. I know this is a hot topic for so many of you right now - and let’s face it I’m in the same position as you, trying to do all the things with a houseful of people when I’m used to working on my own most days while the kids are at school - and I’m so passionate about bringing you the help you need right now. So  I went out to my network and asked them to share their top productivity tips too. I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who jumped on board to do just that because we have some great tips in today’s show!

Vivid storytelling to help us lead our ideal lives

On my 3rd episode in as many days.
Michelle is a high energy, empathetic host who engages with her guests to help them distill their message and value to all of us doing our best to lead our ideal lives.

Her reading of first two chapters of her book transported me back to early days of motherhood so vividly I stopped chopping veg, crossed my legs and nearly shed a tear. Magic!
