    But Which Skills Transfer? Teacher Skills that ARE Business Skills, Part 1

    But Which Skills Transfer? Teacher Skills that ARE Business Skills, Part 1

    "But which skills ACTUALLY transfer?" 

    If you are a teacher who is considering starting a business, or already has the answer is SO MANY. 

    On this episode of Teachers in Business I'm going to take you through the skills that I know - as someone who is and was a teacher and is also a business owner and coach - transfer directly from the classroom to a business. 

    If you're in business as a teacher, or want to be, but you don't want to spend the next 2 years thinking you're starting from scratch (because, spoiler alert, you AREN'T!), this episode is for you!

    The Only Diet You Need in 2022: The Noise Diet

    The Only Diet You Need in 2022: The Noise Diet

    No one likes a diet. 

    But this one? 

    It's not what you think it is. 

    It's not about less food - it's about less DRAMA and noise in your head. 

    And I think THAT is the only kind of diet that's worthwhile in 2022. 

    On this episode of Teachers in Business I'm going to share this tool that nearly all of my clients use at some point in our work together, and that I am using myself RIGHT NOW. 

    I'll share how you know when you need to try it, how to do it without driving yourself crazy, and why it's worth the effort. 

    Ready for less noise? 

    Listen on to learn more!

    Changing Your Friendship Status with Time

    Changing Your Friendship Status with Time

    I don't have enough time', 'I'm working against the clock', "I don't know where all my time GOES'...thought any of these lately?

    You're not alone.

    These are the MOST common thoughts about time I hear from my clients, my FB group members, my friends, my colleagues everyone.

    It's like you're in a constant battle with time, chasing it around like you would a wild toddler, and looking under rocks to find more...and it's like time is your enemy.

    If this sounds familiar, I'd like to propose an alternative.

    What if time could be your bestie, or even just a frenemy (rather than a full on enemy)?

    And what if changing time's friendship status was actually something you could do right now?

    This week on Teachers in Business I'm sharing a simple, practical approach to changing YOUR friendship with time for the BETTER, starting NOW.

    Newbie vs. Expert Energy

    Newbie vs. Expert Energy

    One of the things I hear from clients all the time is ‘well, I’m new in business, I don’t know what to do’. They’re walking around with what I think of as ‘newbie’ energy - but it’s like a costume they’re wearing over their expertise. Today on the podcast we’re going to talk about newbie energy, and why it not only doesn’t need to be something you carry around, but why it’s holding you back!

    Why You Should Have at Least TWO Words for 2022

    Why You Should Have at Least TWO Words for 2022

    Do you usually pick a word of the year? 

    If you do (or even if you don't) I'd like to propose something different for the new year to come. 

    Instead of just one word, I'd like to propose that you pick at least 2, and maybe 3 -5...like a grab bag of goodness. 

    There are more than a few compelling reasons for picking MORE than one word for this coming year - on this episode of the podcast I'm going to lay them out and maybe, just maybe we'll start a new trend together!

    The 4 Words to DITCH as You Plan For 2022

    The 4 Words to DITCH as You Plan For 2022

    This is the time of year we all starting to shift into 2022 planning mode. 

    As you do this, there are 4 words (and all of their iterations) that would be SUPER helpful to DITCH. 

    On this episode of the podcast I'll share these 4 words, why they are not only NOT welcome in your future planning but also are secretly holding you back. 

    A successful 2022 starts with having a successful PLAN - and these 4 words do NOT belong :)
