    170 | Emily's FINAL episode... a look back on working together

    After 2.5 years my teammate and first employee Emily is moving on to pastures new, so I thought it was a fitting farewell for us to record a final episode together and take a trip down memory lane. 
    I was intrigued to ask Emily about her experience being a part of my business and get her take on how the business has shifted and evolved. 
    So for one last time, join us for a rambling chat and a laugh about some of our highs and lows.

    Happy new year! 2022, here we are!
    Before we kick off the new year, I just want to take a moment to reflect on 2021 and the Small Bizmas Party I hosted with my brilliant small business pals, Ellie and Rachel. 
    Today the 3 of us are listening to the wins you recorded for us at the event and want to take some time to celebrate everything you achieved in a challenging year.
    Thanks so much our amazing guests and we can't wait to see where 2022 takes you!

    #5 What do you want to carry in 2022? And what do you want to leave in 2021? | 5 Days of Reflection

    #5 What do you want to carry in 2022? And what do you want to leave in 2021? | 5 Days of Reflection

    Welcome to the final day of 5 Days of Reflection! 
    Now we're so much more aware and in touch with what 2021 held, in today's final instalment we can start to think about what we want to carry with us in 2022, and what we want to leave in 2021. 
    To do this I'll take you through a Stop, Start and Continue framework and this is where reflection is so beneficial because we can use the previous season to influence the next. 
    I'd also encourage you to think about your hopes for 2022 and start to think of your 2022 intentions and give them some air ready for January! 
    I really hope you've enjoyed reflecting on the last year with me and if you've found it helpful I'd love to hear what it bought up for you on Instagram @alice_benham, where I'll also share my own reflections!

    #4 What has 2021 taught you? | 5 Days of Reflection

    Welcome to the penultimate day of 5 Days of Reflection. 
    Today we're going to be taking the challenges we identified yesterday and using them to bridge the gap between the past season, and the new season we're stepping into. 
    So we're reflecting on what 2021 has taught us, and we're going to start with you as a person, a business owner, and we're going to be zooming out further and further to capture all the lessons from the last 12 months. 
    I really hope you're enjoying this mini-series of reflection. If you are, let me know over on Instagram @alice_benham and I will speak to you again tomorrow for the final day!

    #3 What has felt challenging? | 5 Days of Reflection

    #3 What has felt challenging? | 5 Days of Reflection

    Here we are at Day 3, the halfway point already, and it's time to reflect on the more challenging stuff 2021 has held. 
    Today I'll walk you through how to look back at what has felt challenging and not so good in the last 12 months. It's key for us to reflect on the challenges as well as the wins, so we can take the learnings and the purpose from what's not felt so great. 
    So we're going to face things head-on, and not just leave it there to fester but we'll identify the learnings and tomorrow we'll be expanding on what good has come from the challenges.

    #2 What has made the most impact? | 5 Days of Reflection

    Welcome to day 2 of 5 Days of Reflection.
    Each day we will be building on the reflection from the day before so if you've not listened to day 1, I'd encourage you to go back and listen to that before we dive into day 2.  
    Today we're going to take 10 mins to look back on the last 12 months to identify what action, or what decisions have had the most impact on your business so we can learn what has helped you achieve those wins from day 1. 
    Come and let me know on Instagram @alice_benham what's coming up for you.
    Make sure you’re subscribed so you don't miss a day and I will see you again tomorrow where we'll start to focus on the more challenging stuff that 2021 has held.

Love love love!

This podcast is great for any female who is entering the business world or already in it. It’s smart, it’s informative, and it’s interesting! I found my way here through a blog on social media algorithms and the rest is history. Definitely worth the listen!
