    Ep 44. The Secret To Driving Change with Dr Heather McKee

    Ep 44. The Secret To Driving Change with Dr Heather McKee

    This week’s guest is nothing short of exceptional. Dr Heather McKee is a behaviour change specialist and a former business coaching client of mine. 
    Heather is a shining example of getting comfortable with being uncomfortable – as she shares her courageous journey from academia to building an expert business.
    With an extraordinary client roster that includes Vodafone, Tiktok, Starbucks, HSBC, Deloitte and more – Heather has built an expert business that truly works for her, rather than the other way around.
    In this episode, we dive into:
    How Heather’s confidence in the value of what she shares has grown through action The fear Heather experienced around personal branding (and what she did to avoid it!) Why it’s so important to find marketing strategies that work for the business and for you Growing an expert business without being on Instagram (ever!) The power of habits for both your clients’ success and your own… Having the best intentions when it comes to growing a business, just isn’t good enough. This episode shines a light on the power of habits to drive momentum and results – and it’s insightful for you as a fellow expert in wellness, and an ambitious business owner.
    Prepare yourself for Heather’s mind-blowing insights.
    And as always, please do take a moment (if you liked it) to rate and review this episode. I really appreciate it.

    Ep 42. 3 Mistakes That Are Stopping Your Growth (And Exhausting You, Too!)

    Ep 42. 3 Mistakes That Are Stopping Your Growth (And Exhausting You, Too!)

    The ultimate irony for an expert in the wellness industry, is having built a business that has no space to prioritise your own wellbeing.
    There are a few main reasons that growth can start to feel dogged, draining and in some cases, stop completely! In this episode, Hannah and I are diving head first into what these reasons are and how to overcome them.
    We’re talking about why experts need to:
    Stop deviating from a clear, simple, laser-focused business model and getting distracted by “shiney object syndrome”; and why most experts end up frustrated by lack of results; Commit to mastery of one, focused customer journey from start to finish and master that first –– before adding complex layers, additional products and content channels to the mix. Understand what it really takes to create passive income and why this concept as become an elusive mirage that expert seem to be chasing, but never truly achieving! This episode is for you if you feel like you simply cannot step away from your business without it crumbling around you.
    It’s an important conversation and we’re here to have it with you, and to guide you on what the next steps are if it resonates.

    Ep 41. 4 Trends Changing The Game For Wellness Experts

    Ep 41. 4 Trends Changing The Game For Wellness Experts

    The landscape for experts in the wellness industry is changing. 
    These changes signal the dawning of a new era, requiring you to carefully consider your own way of marketing and communicating your expertise!
    In the latest episode of my podcast, EXPERTS, Hannah and I are naming 4 of the critical trends that we believe will influence the future for experts in wellness.
    We’re talking about:
    Why the proliferation of influencer-type experts in wellness is both a blessing and a curse for you How to leverage your client-results and accolades to cut through the noise When the pursuit of mass market volume becomes exhausting and how to approach it differently Why so many experts are distracted from the most meaningful work they set out to do (and what to do about it!) What the boldest experts we work with, are doing differently when it comes to positioning themselves as experts When it comes to industry trends, knowledge is power. More than that, it’s the key to survival.
    I can’t wait for you to listen.

    Ep 40. Everything Is Working Out (Even When It Isn't)

    In this episode of EXPERTS, I'm introducing you to someone who has made a tremendous impact on my life and business over the last two years.
    You're meeting Hannah Materne, the Co-Founder of my latest venture, Beyond Seven.
    We're going right back to the serendipitous moment that first connected us, and how multiple disappointments and mismatched timings, ultimately led us to our greatest achievements and creations together.
    You’ll get an insight into:
    ➤ Why life is working out for you, even when it feels like it isn’t
    ➤ How to hold the faith when your business is exhausting you
    ➤ What it means to take bold steps and pivot (despite things appearing to be successful)
    ➤ When to hold on, and when to let go…

    We’re also sharing more about our vision for Beyond Seven, and how our greatest challenges over the last two years, have become the catalyst for immense personal and professional growth – resulting in the creation of our best work yet.
    I can’t wait to for you to listen.

    Ep 39. One Door Closes, Another Opens

    Ep 39. One Door Closes, Another Opens

    In the previous episode, I shared the news that I have recently exited my first business, Welltodo. It has been an 8 year journey that started with a simple idea, and became a globally recognised brand and platform for wellness industry professionals, entrepreneurs and investors.
    In this episode, I’m sharing some of the honest conversations I had with myself that catalysed this decision, and helped me to take big, uncomfortable action. 
    I’m talking about:
    ➤ Why your entrepreneurial identity is sometimes hard to change
    ➤ What to do when your motivation wanes
    ➤ How life looks for me post-pandemic and why normalising that helped me move forward
    ➤ Reminding myself that starting a business is meant to be the best decision I ever made
    ➤ The power of, and place for, selfish moments in business
    ➤ The changing industry landscape for experts in wellness
    This conversation then leads very nicely on to me sharing more about my next chapter, Beyond Seven. It’s a brand and business that we’ve quietly been building in 2022 and will more officially launch in 2023. 
    I can’t wait to share more.
