    Changing What You're Known For with Sara Tasker

    Changing What You're Known For with Sara Tasker

    Today I’m in conversation with Sara Tasker, who you will undoubtedly know and love as the business and Instagram brain behind Me & Orla and podcast and book Hashtag Authentic. After the release her book last year, Sara went off the grid for months and re-emerged with a brand new programme different to what she’s done before - and I have been dying to know exactly how that came about behind the scenes. So today, Sara and I talk about how she came up with a brand new idea, her process for putting a new programme together, her mindset and approach to business and how she began marketing something different to what she’s known for. We also, of course, touch on Instagram.

    A New Way To Think About Niching

    A New Way To Think About Niching

    A week or so again I did an Ask Me Anything on Stories, and a question that came up more than once was “how do you find your niche?”. I found I couldn’t quite put into a couple of paragraphs what I think about niching, and as a few people had asked I thought it might be worth doing a podcast episode on niching - so here we are. I think niching is something that comes up over and over again in your business - it’s often something we want to get ‘right’ at the start, but it continues to rear its head as we keep developing our work. I have a mixed relationship with the niche, I change between thinking it’s a good and a bad thing, so today I thought I’d explore the why’s and wherefore’s of niching, and how to start thinking about your niche.

    Cultivating Self-Trust In Business

    Cultivating Self-Trust In Business

    Today I want to talk about self-trust. I have jumped into some many decisions and ideas without it ever occurring to me to check whether I actually wanted to do them - and as a result I’ve felt stuck and sad that my business reality doesn’t live up to my business daydreams. Because it is supposed to feel better than this. The pressure, the worry, the actions taken out of panic or uncertainty, the tasks you dread are rooted in a lack of self-trust. I acknowledge here my privilege as a white woman that the colour of my skin, nor my sexual orientation nor a disability are something that unfairly holds me back. It is reductive of me to say that every single problem for every single person is founded in self-trust. Yet I do know that everything becomes harder when you aren’t on your own side, when you are another barrier for yourself to get over. It doesn’t have to be hard, and it can feel joyful. So, let’s talk about trust.

    Coaching Episode - Talking About Your Why Without Looking Like You've Jumped On The Bandwagon with Rosie Harriott

    Coaching Episode - Talking About Your Why Without Looking Like You've Jumped On The Bandwagon with Rosie Harriott

    Today is a coaching episode with Rosie Harriott, a textile designer who has worked across fashion and homewares both in-house and as a freelancer, and who is now shifting from being freelance to a business. Rosie has also had a personal journey of wellness and awakening over the last few years which is the reason for the business shift - but she’s worried about how to communicate this in her content without looking like she’s jumped on the bandwagon. In this episode we talk about starting to talk about your business across your channels, maintaining community when you start talking about what you do, making sure your why reads as authentic and approaching a personal tone of voice.

    Transitioning & Simplifying My Business Model

    Transitioning & Simplifying My Business Model

    This month, on my blog and on Instagram, I’ve been sharing the experience of transitioning and simplifying my business model in response to my values and I how I want my business to support the life I want to live. I know that this is a perennial problem for many - the moment where you have out grown the old skin of your business but don’t know quite how to shed into and evolve into a new skin. It is a natural part of business, of life, but it is also one that is messy and feels, at times, insurmountable. I know that particularly this year many of you have been reflecting on how your business and life interact, so I felt that it was apt to share more of the step by step of my process here.
