    Get your pink back with Jen Bowers

    Get your pink back with Jen Bowers

    I'm so excited to welcome Jen Bowers back to the show. Jen Bowers is a Brand Joy Coach & Strategist with over three decades of experience and an unapologetic, passionate voice for 50+ women who are ready to live their life in full colour.

     

    Her mission is to help women over 50 uncover, rediscover and become who they were always meant to be through the power of branding, embodiment and self-transformation. Through her programs, presentations and services, Jen helps women entrepreneurs stand out like a flamingo in a flock of seagulls.

     

    When flamingos are actively parenting and not looking after themselves or eating properly - they lose their pink colour. When the babies leave the nest, they start looking after themselves again and they get their pink back. It is Jen’s mission for the year to help as many women as she possibly can bring back their pink and not live their life in black and white.

     

    In 2020, Jen was working in a corporate branding position for a corporate company and was unfortunately made redundant as a result of Covid. She tried to find another job in the corporate world but struggled as a designer at the age of 52. So what did she do? She took the opportunity to start running her own business. 

     

    In this episode, Jen shares her career journey and how she felt that once she hit a certain age, she became invisible. She did a lot of soul searching and is now living her best life in full colour and is passionate about helping other women that feel their light diminishing and turning grey. 

     

    Jen explores how she used to feel limited, too big or too old to do, act or wear certain things. She was always trying to stay small and fit in a box that just wasn’t made for her and broke free through a lot of self-development. 

     

    We discuss Jen’s business journey, the impact of suggestive language, the power of perception, self-limiting beliefs, and how she incorporates community into her business and advocates for all business owners to not do everything on their own. 

     

    Jen’s biggest achievement has been reinventing herself and going from living in black and white doing and being who she thought she should be to becoming who she was meant to be and exploring a new world full of vibrant colour.

    RECAST: Champagne and Post-It Notes

    RECAST: Champagne and Post-It Notes

    This week I have consciously chosen to recast one of my favourite and most popular episodes of 2022 all about Champagne and post-it notes.

    You’ve recently seen me launch the Champagne Lounge, which was born out of what I’ve been doing for the last decade around setting goals and celebrating my successes with post-it notes on bottles of champagne in the fridge. 

    The joy of my success and the reason I’m where I am now is that I put my goals in front of me every single day. Every time I open the fridge, I’m reminded of what I want to achieve. And when I smash those goals, I get to drink champagne in celebration!

    As business owners and entrepreneurs, we are so busy constantly striving for our goals, we forget that we need to give ourselves permission to stop and celebrate.

    In this episode, I share the ritual that reminds me to stop and smell the roses when I achieve one of my goals. Every year I buy at least six bottles of champagne, stick my goals written on post-it notes onto each bottle, store them in the fridge and pop one whenever I reach that goal! 

    My champagne of choice is Veuve Clicquot, and I share with you the history of this brand and why it gives me all the feels!

    My challenge to you is - how will you celebrate your successes? How will your goals and dreams be at the forefront of your mind so that you can make them a reality?

    From publishing books, gaining clients and hiring new staff to doubling profit and buying a country house, all of these amazing goals are absolutely achievable. So, stock up on some post-it notes and champagne bottles, and get ready to celebrate your success when those goals are smashed.

    Are you asking for the help YOU need?

    Are you asking for the help YOU need?

    Asking for help, for a lot of people, is one of the most difficult things we can do. The last few years have been challenging for us all, and for many business owners, the stress and pressure have taken their toll. 

    A lot of people are struggling right now so in today’s short and sweet episode, my encouragement to you all is to ask for help where you need it. You don’t have to struggle alone. There are people out there who will have your back, support you and encourage you through the tough times and celebrate the wins… all you need to do is ask. 

    If you’re stuck in your own head and keeping your challenges and thought processes to yourself, you’re missing out on a wide variety of ideas and ways of doing things that might help your situation. 

    We’re not meant to do life alone. There is a tribe out there just for you, which is exactly why I started The Champagne Lounge. Come join in and meet like minded people who are open to having those higher level conversations about life, business and everything in between.

    What area of your life or business are you struggling with right now? 

    I encourage you to be bold today and ask for the help that you need.

    Rules were made to be broken with the unstoppable Em Gee

    Rules were made to be broken with the unstoppable Em Gee

    In today’s conversation, I’m joined by Mrs Unstoppable herself, Em Gee. Em is a marketing and mindset coach for female entrepreneurs and bestselling author of her book Uncertain to Unstoppable. In her book, Em shares her life journey moving through uncertainty and trauma to becoming unstoppable. This transformation was made possible by letting go of what people thought of her, adopting forgiveness and embracing personal development. 

    Often we all have trouble finding ways to stand out and face roadblocks when trying to step out of our comfort zone so I’ve brought Em here to help! 

    Mrs. Unstoppable became an avatar of Em’s, a little superhero in a pink costume who embodies who she wants to be and allows her to show up at a certain level in her business. She encourages all of her Unstoppables to do the same and asks them three questions to get them to dive deeper into who they want to be: 


    What does that version of me believe?
    What does that version of me think?
    How would that version of me like to feel?

    By working through these three questions, Em helps her clients lean into the wobbles along the way and start showing up differently in their businesses. 

    In this episode Em talks about her own journey to becoming unstoppable, how to move through the valleys and peaks in business, setting boundaries and finding space, and the three biggest rules she has broken and the benefits that have resulted from them. 

    Em encourages all entrepreneurs who are worried about what people are going to think to think about these four questions: 


    What's the worst that can happen? 
    What can you do to prevent the worst from happening?
    What you can do if the worst happens? 
    What's the best that can happen?

    Tune in to hear all of Em’s unstoppable advice and experience to start breaking rules in your own business journey and become the version of you that you’ve always wanted.

    Getting your voice heard with PR Expert Jaimie Abbott

    Getting your voice heard with PR Expert Jaimie Abbott

    Even with access to the world at our fingertips, getting your voice heard as a business owner, a creative or an entrepreneur can be tough going. Algorithms don’t always work in our favour and are ads really worth it?

    If you’ve got a message that you want to get out there but you’re afraid of what people might think, worried about not being seen or just don’t know where to get started, I’ve got PR expert, Jaimie Abbott here to help.

    Jaimie is an award-winning media professional and international keynote speaker and has spent two decades in the industry working as a Radio and TV Journalist, Political Media Adviser, Managing Director of her own public speaking and media training company and a Communications Adviser for the Royal Australian Air Force. Needless to say, she has loads of experience when it comes to media, public speaking and presenting a message to the world. 

    In this conversation, Jaimie and I discuss some of the common areas people fall short when it comes to presenting, from speaking on a stage to Instagram lives. Jaimie talks about rehearsing, and how even the most experienced public speakers still do this. We talk about how to conquer your fears by being really solid on a few key points and why we shouldn’t ever be worried about putting the same message out there over and over again. 

    We’re all human, and we’re all going to make mistakes. But that can be part of the experience for whoever’s listening. We talk about embracing the human element and not giving air time to the negative comments that might come when you put yourself out there.

    Customer Service: VIP or RIP?

    Customer Service: VIP or RIP?

    I have a meaty one for you today as I dive into my view on the culture of customer service today. Quite frankly, in the majority of businesses that I have interactions with, customer service as far as I'm concerned, is dead. So I’m broaching the topic today to talk about what we as business owners and consumers can do to create the VIP experience and change the culture of customer service. 

    In recent years, I believe that we have all become extremely complacent with the way we are treated, particularly by big business. Yes, covid made an impact. But that’s no excuse to not smile at your customers when they walk in the door, respond in a timely manner to queries or ensure that customers are getting the services that they paid good money for.

    We can do better. You, your customers and your community deserve better.

    In this episode, without going on too much of a rant, I share a few examples of customer service experiences that I’ve had recently that have left me cancelling subscriptions left, right and centre. 

    For me and my business, the VIP experience is a huge focus. I am consciously putting measures in place to create the VIP experience for myself and my clients every single day.

    I also share some examples of businesses that are doing an incredible job at treating their customers with the genuine care and service they deserve. I talk about how we can begin looking at our own lives and businesses to stand out in our industries, all the way down to the micro decisions. 

    As small business owners, we want to create raving fans, not resentful customers. I hope this episode inspires you to ponder on the level of customer service that you’ve been accepting as the norm and where, as a business owner, you can start leveling up to create an incredible VIP experience for your customers.
