Celebrate Your Wins!

May 17, 2021
 

Are you missing parties and celebrations at the moment? We’re almost out of lockdown here in the UK, but I just celebrated another child’s party quietly and I am ready to CELEBRATE LOUDLY!

 

In fact, I have a really BIG celebration coming up this summer. If you can believe it (I can’t!) I will be 50 and I plan to be celebrating with friends in Mallorca! Sounds amazing, right? Now I’m not telling you this to make you jealous, but to remind you of how hopeful and exciting celebrations can feel. While parties are usually something that most of us are comfortable celebrating, how about a shout out to the smaller day to day things that lead to the bigger successes in our lives and our businesses?

 

What’s that? You don’t have time to celebrate those kinds of wins? Well my friend, today I want to share why it’s critical to make time for this because it’s critical to your business success.

 

I want to explain this with a...

Let’s Talk About the C Word

May 10, 2021
 

No, not that C word. I actually want to talk to you about three C words today and they’re CRITICAL to the success of your website and your business. That was another one!

 

I don’t have to tell you that it’s 2021. The year after the global pandemic that we all just spent online. One thing I have found is that while having a website has always been important, now it’s more important than ever. Why? Because when you’re serving people online, your website is usually the first point of contact where people go to find out who you are, what you do and how you can help them. But in order to be successful, your website needs to do 3 things:

 

Confirm who you are

Capture your dream client’s name and email address

Convert them into paying clients

 

That’s quite a few C words! Let’s break them down and see why they’re so important.

 

Confirm

 

What’s the first thing you do when you want to find out about a...

4 Questions for a Successful 2021

Mar 29, 2021
 

How often do you check into your annual plan once you’ve written it? Monthly? Quarterly? Never?  Guess what, never is the wrong answer!

 

It is so important to review and assess your plan throughout the year for two reasons:

 

  1. To make sure that you celebrate your wins
  2. To stop yourself from drifting off track

 

Has 2021 lived up to expectations so far? If yes, it's time to celebrate, if not, it's time to course correct so that you can make the next 9 months AMAZING! Many of us had big hopes for 2021 after the fiasco of 2020 and in some parts of the world, life is almost normal. Here in the UK we are still in endless lockdown even though Spring is knocking on the door.

 

The big question you now need to ask in order to move forward with success is how has the world situation affected the goals you set in January? Are you still in lockdown? Are your kids back at school? Are you able to continue with the same hours you allocated for work, yourself and...

You Are AMAZING!

Mar 15, 2021
 

Why do we need a special day to remind us of what we should do every day? Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, Father's Day? We should always try to practice gratitude and be appreciative to those who have sacrificed for our happiness and nurtured us and loved us. Not always easy, I know, but worthy of more than one day a year.

 

In that spirit, I wanted to share this LIVE with you because even though I recorded it on International Women's Day, it's sentiment is for every day.

 

I want you to know that I respect you and honour you for all the hats you wear and all the roles you fill. You are special and deserve to be recognised for all the hard work and effort you put in to everything you do from running a business to running a family.

 

As women, we tend to focus on dealing with life as it comes and moving forward without taking the time to celebrate our successes along the way. Celebrating success is CRITICAL for your happiness , your energy and your...

Winning Goals - 3 Pitfalls to AVOID for Big Results

Feb 24, 2021
 

Remember going on holiday? I have always loved going away on a trip and I hope that I will be able to again in the not-too-distant future! I know it’s not the same for everyone, but I have to say that for me, half the fun is the planning!

 

You won’t be surprised to hear that my holiday planning is legendary. Knowing how long I have, the personalities of who’s going and roughly what the weather will be, I always put together an itinerary combining adventure, relaxation, fine dining and chilled out vibes. I like a mix.

 

My trips are awesome because I apply the techniques of goal setting that I teach with my Goals are Your #1 ASSET methodology when I plan most things in my life. But that’s me and I’m an organisation geek who likes to set goals.  Unfortunately, the reality is that MOST people struggle with sorting through the millions of things they have to do to create goals that are actionable, trackable and generate...

Structure is NOT a Dirty Word

Feb 15, 2021
 

Some people like living life spontaneously being surprised by what each moment brings. Other people like knowing exactly what they are doing every day for the foreseeable future. Most people are somewhere in between, but any way you cut it, having some structure in your day is incredibly important for living your best life.

 

This is especially true right now as each day blends into the next as we all stay at home without activities like entertainment, sports, travel or socialising to break up the routine. That’s why it’s so important now, more than ever, to put some structure in place to make boundaries between work and home life so that you can be

 

  • Super productive without lack of focus or distraction during your work hours
  • Present to enjoy family and me time during your other hours

 

I know that finding that balance is tough which is why I have put together 7 simple steps to help you create a daily structure that works best for you.

Time to Ditch the To Do List

Feb 08, 2021
 

Confession time: I used to be a To Do List junkie. I used to have to do lists all over the place in various notebooks of different sizes. I also had sticky notes AND to do lists on Notes on my Mac. Work to do lists, family to do lists, food to buy lists, holiday prep to do lists, party prep to do lists – am I alone here or are you with me?

 

Here’s the thing, I thought these to do lists were helping me to organise my thoughts and my tasks when in fact, they were causing me stress, frustration and overwhelm. How many lifetimes would I need to get half of all that stuff done?

 

So after much trial and error, this is the conclusion I came to: To Do lists are great for a brain dump, but they are awful as a task management tool.

 

Let’s drill down into this.

 

Here’s how a to do list can be of value:

 

  • You can get everything out of your head where it is causing you stress and anxiety thereby allowing you to focus on the task at hand.
  • You...

5 Steps to a Productive Home Workspace

Feb 01, 2021
 

Over the last few weeks, we have been laying the foundation for a truly productive year! We started by taking care of ourselves and the stresses related to covid including all the extra roles we were continuing to play in addition to entrepreneur including but not limited to chef, teacher, pa, housekeeper and counsellor. We then reframed our resolutions to make them stick, set goals and intentions are now ready to take action!

 

The next step in getting truly productive is taking a look at your work environment. Is your workspace and the distraction it represents sucking away at your time as you hunt for what you need but can’t find it amongst the piles?

 

Are you trying to get all your work done from the comfort of your bed?

 

Do you feel unproductive when you sit down at your desk because you feel overwhelmed by all the clutter?

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will love the 5 Key Steps for Creating a Productive Workspace that I...

Why New Year Resolutions Don’t Stick

Jan 25, 2021
 

Happy New Year!

 

Over the last few years, my family has had a tradition of starting the year by going around the table and sharing our New Year’s Resolutions. We then go back around the table and suggest resolutions for each other. Dangerous stuff I know! Fortunately, we haven’t killed each other yet.

 

But seriously, the act of setting a resolution is both important and rewarding, especially as we come out of 2020 which was such a disaster for so many.  The need to set goals and resolutions is more important than ever for 2021 as they give us something to hope for, to look forward to and to strive for.  

 

Have you made any New Year resolutions for this year? How are they going? Are you finding them difficult or easy to stick to?

 

Here's the bad news – New Year’s Resolutions usually don't work. What? On average, 64% of resolutions are abandoned by February. Isn’t it crazy that so many of us make resolutions...

5 Ways to Stay Motivated When Working From Home

Jan 18, 2021
 

Happy New Year and welcome to lockdown 3.0! I know a lot of people have been pinning their hopes on 2021 for a return to life as we normally know it, but unfortunately, we’re not there yet. With the UK and many other countries in lockdown, we find ourselves once more cooks, teachers, trainers, therapists and motivators – all while trying to run a business from home.

 

Many of my clients are struggling with the motivation to move forward and that’s what I wanted to talk to you about today. This time around is especially challenging because not only are we coming off the back of an indulgent and lazy Christmas period (I took two weeks off to do nothing but cook, eat and watch Netflix), but it is also cold and inhospitable outside with short, wet and cold days. So where does the motivation to move forward come from?

 

I'm glad you asked, because I have your back! This week, I have put together 5 strategies to get you motivated to take control of 2021:
