Affordable is not accessible

Affordable is not accessible

May 13, 2022

In this episode, me and Katie let you listen in on our chat about accessibility and whether or not it's related to affordability, how we feel about the accessibility of our own offers and what accessibility has to do with YOUR business in general (yep, we're talking to you!)

While we are definitely not experts on this topic, we do hope that starting this conversation might trigger some new ideas, thoughts or perspectives that'll help you grow your business with others in mind.

What we chat about:

  • How our disagreement started this conversation (and why it's a GOOD thing to disagree sometimes)
  • Why affordability and accessibility are completely different things
  • What accessibility can look like for service-based businesses
  • How and why you should begin questioning your processes

The moments where you want to quit

The moments where you want to quit

May 6, 2022

We all have those moments when we want to give up when things get hard and in this episode, I chat to my client Emily about the last few years in her business and all the ups and downs she has experienced, including the moment where she contemplated giving up but instead invested in 1:1 mentoring.

What we chat about:

  • Em's experience of having a baby and how that impacted her business.
  • Overcoming the mindset and confidence blocks when your business isn't where you want it to be.
  • The difference in marketing between done for you services and new offers with a slightly different audience in mind.

From £700 to 6 figure business

From £700 to 6 figure business

March 18, 2022

In this episode, I chat to Sarah who managed to turn £700 into a 6 figure business by simply spotting a gap in the market and grabbing it with both hands (while having children may I add!) 

Sarah now has two businesses (one product-based and one service-based) and in this episode, we chat about all the lessons she has learnt along the way and discuss what it is that she believed helped her business grow to the level it's at now.

What we chat about:

  • How the business idea came from noticing (and being in) a gap in the market.
  • Why Sarah made the decision to reinvest all profits and not take any pay for 18 months.
  • What to do when things get difficult and you're ready to give up.
  • Making the most of your time when you don't have much of it.

Learn from my mistakes - hire before you’re ready

Learn from my mistakes - hire before you’re ready

March 11, 2022

This is an episode for those of you who are looking to hire in the near future AND those of you who are often hired by others (service providers, I'm looking at you!)

We all know it's best to hire 'before you're ready' but in this episode, I share how not giving 100% to an investment because I was so busy and overwhelmed trying to juggle everything, meant that I had to pay three times because I didn't have the time and energy to commit to it the first two times.

What I chat about:

  • My own example of why it's important to hire before you're ready if you want the best results and the best investment financially.
  • Why it's important not to fully outsource to the point where you aren't involved/aware of what's going on.
  • How you should be communicating what you'll need from your clients before agreeing to work with them.
  • Why telling clients what they want to hear can do you (and them) a disservice in the long run.
  • The importance of taking responsibility for the mistakes you made and holding yourself accountable rather than shifting the blame to the other person involved.

The self-awareness journey that comes with running a business

The self-awareness journey that comes with running a business

March 4, 2022

In this episode, mindset coach Samantha talks to us about the importance of mindset for business owners and how the mindset work creates an important foundation for the business that we might struggle without.

Whether you're already working on your mindset or it feels like something at the bottom of your priority list right now, I really urge you to give this episode a listen as we share our thoughts and personal experiences on our mindset through our business journeys. 

What we chat about:

  • How Samantha's chronic health issues led her on a healing journey that culminated in mindset coaching for others.
  • Why money is pointless without the mindset work.
  • The self-awareness journey of running a business and why it'll highlight all the things you might be avoiding.
  • What toxic positivity is and how it might be hindering you.
  • The law of polarity and why the bad moments in business may well be good moments in the long run.
  • My own personal struggles with my identity in early 2021.

The unsexy side of pivoting

The unsexy side of pivoting

February 25, 2022

There is a lot of information out there about following your heart and doing what feels good, so I thought I'd tackle the unsexy bits of pivoting in this episode instead!

Here I discuss the three logical aspects of pivoting that I would recommend you think about before taking the leap, based on my own personal experience of pivoting from virtual assistant to business mentor and also the experiences of my clients.

In short: follow your heart, but bring your head!

What I chat about:

  • The 3 things you should think about before you decide to leap into a pivot.
  • How long it might take to pivot from one offer to another.
  • My personal experience of going from virtual assistant to business mentor.
  • The financial implications of pivoting.
