    124 | BTS - taking a MONTH off - why and how

    After talking about taking the whole of August off for so long, it's finally here! 
    This is the last podcast episode before taking 4 weeks out, so I wanted to share another BTS look at how and why taking a month off became one of my goals for this year. 
    I also wanted to let you in on the the practical side of how Emily & I have prepped for the time away and how I feel about stepping back from my business for some time out. 
    So this is us for the next four weeks, but we're so excited to come back in September with some new features, more conversations and more BTS episodes!

    123 | Why we're all making it up as we go along

    123 | Why we're all making it up as we go along

    Looking at other business owners it's easy to assume everyone knows what they're doing and you're the only one figuring it out as you go, but the more business owners I meet the more I realise we're all trying things out, seeing what works and learning as we go. 
    Joined by Kay, founder of Leafage we chat about how there is no magic formula when it comes to building a business and we're all making it up as we go along, even if it doesn't look like that from the outside. 
    Every business has an unglamorous side and we're all going through a similar process of figuring it out, taking action and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone, so if you feel like you're winging it know that you are not on your own.

    122 | BTS - reflecting on Q2 & setting goals for Q3

    122 | BTS - reflecting on Q2 & setting goals for Q3

    Welcome to other BTS episode with me and my team member Emily. I’m so glad you enjoyed the first one of this new episode style and I’m excited to share this episode with you, where you’re going to get an inside look at us reflecting on Q2 and setting goals for Q3.
    As you know, I am big on setting intentions, setting goals and then making these into weekly actions steps. If you want to know about how I take annual goals and break them down check out my IGTV “How I set goals in my business”
    I hope this episode prompts you to do some reflection on the first half of 2020 and to set Q3 goals for your business! It's not been the quarter any of us expected, but it has allowed me to experiment and try some new things in my business, if that's been the same for you I'd love to continue the conversation over on Instagram

    121 | Are you getting in your own way? The truth about self sabotage

    121 | Are you getting in your own way? The truth about self sabotage

    After mixing things up on the podcast for a few months I'm so excited to be back with a co-host for a big old conversation on a really juicy topic! 
    Joining me today is Ashleigh Frater, mindset coach and all round genius when it comes to self sabotage and why we all get in our own way when it comes to setting and achieving our goals. 
    So what does self sabotage actually looks like? How does it show up and why? 
    We're going to share what it looks like for us in our businesses, how we recognise when we're getting in our own way and how we move through it. 
    If you enjoyed todays episode, I’d love for you to leave a review over on iTunes or connect with me over on Instagram to let me know what you thought!

    120 | How do you build a digital strategy?

    120 | How do you build a digital strategy?

    I don't know about you, but I find the words 'digital strategy' so intimidating. Those words put together just make me freeze up and what does digital strategy even mean?
    Well in this episode I want to break this down and walk you through how your digital strategy is simply, the plan you have for how your business is going to show up and grow online. 
    You will have multiple platforms and touch points in your strategy so I want you to get really clear on the intention behind each of those elements and the value each of them is giving. 
    If some parts of this digital strategy still feel a bit unclear or you want more support with it I have something coming up that could be a good fit for you. 
    Within July I am going to be hosting two workshops on email marketing and websites and harnessing the power of those two platforms. 
    This will be the only time I host these workshops in a live format with Q&A's and personalised feedback, so join the waitlist to be the first to know when tickets are released.
