    Why Having Structure in Your Day is so Important and How to do it

    Why Having Structure in Your Day is so Important and How to do it

    In this episode, Jeannette talks about why having structure in your life is important. How it can help you to get through times like the ones we are living through now.

     

    Jeannette explains how she has followed her mentor´s advice to manage her time and become far more successful and productive as a result. She shares the method she used. An approach that is flexible enough for anyone to implement and use to get rid of that stressful feeling that there are not enough hours in the day.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    You cannot extend time, but you can manage how you use that time.
    Everyone has a 24hr day. Yet some people get more done than others.
    Look, in detail at what you are doing with your time and ask yourself - Should you be doing it? Does it add value to your life?
    Be sure to take action, after your review.
    Use the start, stop, continue model, which Jeannette explains in the podcast, to rework how you spend your day.
    Don´t be afraid to delegate.
    Be ruthless when clearing out your diary.
    Make sure that you are spending time on your priorities rather than other people´s priorities.
    Compartmentalising your diary keeps you organised, while still providing some flexibility.
    Don´t forget to include time to strategise and work on your long-term goals.
    Create the right environment and routines to manage your time. Little things like turning off notifications while working make a huge difference.
    Starting your day in the right way will help throughout the rest of the day.
    Stick with it. Usually, it takes 21 to 30 days to turn a positive change into a long-term habit.
    Stop trying to manage your time - instead, manage your life.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘You can't really manage time because it is what it is. But you can manage your life.’

    ‘Take a good hard look at how you're spending your time. Who you're spending time with and what you're spending time on.’

    ‘Stick with it. It takes 21 days on average to stop an old habit and create a new habit.’

    Interview with Toni Gargan – Be True to Yourself and Follow the Path That Will Make You Happy

    Interview with Toni Gargan – Be True to Yourself and Follow the Path That Will Make You Happy

    In this episode, Jeannette interviews Toni Gargan from Owen Oliver Property. Toni is a property investor, mentor, public speaker, entrepreneur and trainer teaching others how to invest in property.

     

    They discuss how Toni and her husband juggled having two little boys to look after and two full-time jobs with starting a property business. As well as how they borrowed from other people to get started rather than following the traditional financing route. Toni is passionate about helping others through being an educator and public speaker. She explains how she overcame fear and risk to transition from her day job in HR to fulfilling her dream to help others by teaching them to become property developers.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    It is possible to build a huge property empire even if you do not have much money of your own, at the beginning.
    Being curious and becoming a lifelong learner is highly beneficial regardless of your chosen career.
    Fear is a good thing because it makes you stop and think, but you must not let it overwhelm and paralyze you.
    You need to fully understand the risk, then do what you can to mitigate them.
    When you have bad experiences, learn from them, and use them to spur you on.
    Sacrifices are an investment. It´s short term pain for long-term gain.
    Be true to yourself, do things your way, don´t worry about being judged by others.
    You need to be sure that you are striving to achieve the right goals. It's all too easy to put a lot of time and energy into something that does not bring you happiness.
    Approach things in a way that is congruent with your values.
    You gain more by helping others.
    Seek out and take advantage of win-win situations.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I´m a massive believer in helping other people to understand and realize their potential.’

    ´Many people have this massive desire to achieve things, but fear holds them back.’

    ‘I see sacrifices as an investment.’

    ´People are going to judge you anyway, so let them judge you for being who you are.’

    Entrepreneurs Can Party - Jeannette being interviewed by Scott Stockdale

    Entrepreneurs Can Party - Jeannette being interviewed by Scott Stockdale

    #039 BBB - Entrepreneurs Can Party Jeannette being interviewed by Scott Stockdale

     

    DESCRIPTION

    In this episode, Jeannette is being interviewed by Scott Stockdale from Entrepreneurs Can Party. They discuss her mentoring work. But the majority of this podcast focuses on the property development side of Jeannette´s business. Including, why she started it. As well as the path she followed to gain the knowledge she needed to make it a success.

     

    She explains what their five-year plan is and how that will be achieved. They talk about the buy to let, how to use refurbish-refinance models that Jeannette and her partner are using and how all of this is done in a hand´s off way.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Property development is a good way to build long-term wealth.
    Certain kinds of property development can also create short-term cashflow.
    Educating yourself properly before starting a property business is wise.
    Using a mentor enables you to bounce ideas off of them and avoid taking wrong turns and making expensive mistakes.
    Being prepared to hire the right people to cover any skill gaps enables you to grow much faster.
    You need to put a lot of effort into establishing your team.
    Make sure you build in sufficient redundancy into your team, so things don´t collapse if someone goes sick.
    Re-investing what you earn into buying more properties enables you to build a stock of high-value assets surprisingly quickly.
    You need to be clear at the outset about what you are planning to do with each property.
    You do not necessarily have to deal with builders or tenants. Property can be a hand´s off business.
    Once you have got your processes in place things move faster.
    You should only use a mentor if you are ready to act.
    As a mentor, you need to be a good listener. If you are not you cannot understand your client and provide them with sound guidance.
    Understanding what you want from life, is critical, it is the first step to success.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I wanted to create multiple streams of income, long term wealth, short term cash flow, and to be my own boss. Property development has been a part of that.’

    ‘The best investment you can make is in yourself.´

    ‘If you know where you´re heading, then it is much easier to get there. ’

    ‘Believe in yourself and live your life so that you won’t have any regrets at the end of your life. ’

    Maggie Watts Hope is Contagious – An Insight into Her Bold Campaign to Raise Awareness of Pancreatic Cancer

    Maggie Watts Hope is Contagious – An Insight into Her Bold Campaign to Raise Awareness of Pancreatic Cancer

    In this episode, Jeannette speaks to Maggie Watts, who is fighting to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and get more funding for research and treatment. She has done so with great success. To the point where people like the actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, who played Hayley Cropper in Coronation Street, Joey Barton the footballer, the DJ Stephanie Hirst and Lorraine Kelly joined her campaign. Today, thanks to her efforts and those of other campaigners this cancer attracts more funding, but there is still a lot to be done.

     

    Maggie explains how her husband and family embraced the time he had left and shares some of the many lessons she learned then. Lessons and skills that stayed with her and have continued to drive her forwards. Maggie and Jeannette also talk about how to tackle difficult conversations, how having a clear purpose, a positive mindset and never giving up means you can achieve incredible things in life.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    There is still not enough awareness of pancreatic cancer and research into the disease is woefully underfunded.
    The survival rates for pancreatic cancer are low, partly because of delays in diagnosis.
    GPs frequently miss pancreatic cancer, so you need to be aware of the symptoms (** see our list of symptoms below)
    You may have to actively ask your doctor to consider pancreatic cancer as a potential cause of your symptoms.
    There is a tendency for doctors not to look at your symptoms in totality to treat each one individually – don´t be afraid to remind your doctors of your full list of symptoms.
    Being able to challenge in a respectful yet effective way is an important skill.
    The medical team are the experts, but it should never stop you from doing your own research and discussing what you have found with them.
    Don´t be afraid to challenge if something doesn´t feel right.
    There are mechanisms available that you can use to force change using the political system.
    Twitter is a good way to gain momentum for a campaign and find influencers and celebrities who will get on board.
    Ideally, you need someone who has a high profile to get involved to keep the momentum going.
    Tenacity, a positive mindset, and pulling together as a team really does enable you to beat the odds and get the exposure your cause needs.
    You only fail when you stop.
    Keep yourself in good shape, if you don´t you will burn out and have to stop your campaign.
    You need to embrace life, none of us know how long we´ve got on this earth.
    Hope is contagious, it drives people on to find solutions and ways of coping even in seemingly impossible situations.
    Pancreatic cancer used to only get 1% of funding. Now, thanks to Maggie and her fellow campaigners it gets 3%.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Change doesn´t happen unless people have a voice’

    ‘Whatever life throws at me now, mostly it’s sortable or doable´

    ´If you've got something, whatever it is that you want to achieve, figure it out as you go along and don't let people cast any doubt in your mind´

    ABOUT THE GUEST

     

    Maggie Watts is a Pancreatic Cancer Advocate, campaigning for more awareness and more funding of Pancreatic Cancer.

     

    For the last 10 years Maggie has campaigned for more awareness and more funding for pancreatic cancer as a result of losing her husband, Kevin  to the disease and discovering that survival rates hadn't improved at all in the 40 years prior to his death. Kev's mum had also died of pancreatic cancer exactly 40 years earlier (aged 27) and nothing had changed whatsoever in all of that time.

     

    This was a shock to Maggie and also unbelievable and unacceptable that nothing had changed in all of that time - after Kev died it became a mission of hers (and also a coping mechanism for grief) to see what she could do to raise awareness.  Maggie started a Government e-petition and too

    Pete Lonton – Seek Out and Pursue Your Passion to Achieve Your Potential

    Pete Lonton – Seek Out and Pursue Your Passion to Achieve Your Potential

    In this episode, Jeannette speaks to Pete Lonton, who is a former engineer, project manager and property investor. Today, his focus is on helping others to find their potential and become the mightiest version of themselves, in particular through his podcast Fire in the Belly


     

    Jeannette and Pete discuss how he overcame his ADHD, depression, and dyslexia to become an award winner in his industry while building up a huge property empire. Before, setting up Fire in the Belly as a way of inspiring others to succeed too. They discuss how to avoid getting trapped in a negative work cycle, as well as how to transition to working on something you feel passionate about.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    You need balance in your work life. If you don´t have it, you will make yourself ill, especially mentally.
    People who explore and go with their gut instincts tend to be passionate about what they do.
    Everyone has fire in their belly, something that they passionately believe in, something that motivates them.
    Often, when you have a weakness in one area, you excel in another because you have developed skills to compensate for your weakness.
    Every so often, everyone needs to pause, stand back, and make sure they are not on a hamster wheel that is taking them nowhere.
    Depression is a symptom, not a cause, you have to recognise how you became depressed and make the relevant changes.
    When you step off the hamster wheel, you end up with a fertile void that provides you with the chance to make step changes in life.
    Talking to others about their journeys is a great way to learn and inspire yourself to success.
    Everyone needs a North Star, a golden thread. A goal to focus on that pulls them forward.
    We all let silly things hold us back, especially things that happened in the distant past, for example, failing our exams.
    All of the answers are inside you, but the voice that guides us has become a faint whisper, you have to learn to block out distractions and listen to it.
    The changes you make do not have to be big to make a huge difference.
    Pursue those ideas that you can´t stop thinking about, they are usually viable ideas.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘We’re all souls in a meat suit’.

    ‘I believe everyone´s born with that fire in the belly.

    ‘We're all capable of so much, but yet we're leaving the handbrake on, you've got all these beliefs that hold you back, that restrict you.

    ‘Define your vision to find your passion.

    ‘Live life with no regrets’.
