Have the courage to be imperfect

"When I’ve done this, after I’ve learnt that, I just need to change this, and I want to tweak that." STOP. If you continue in this motion of distraction and procrastination you will never be finished.

Last night it was my turn to put my daughter to bed, a time to chat before she snuggles down and falls asleep. To make sure I don’t fall asleep I quite often scroll through a social media feed or two. Then BOOM it hit me I was scrolling for scrolling sake, something you might be doing in your business.

Where are you not all in?

A question I use in my daily journaling, a prompt to check in with myself and the business. It’s proved extremely useful since I introduced it, especially when 'something' is not working in the business and quite often because I’m simply 'not all in'.

I’m not ready. I’m not good enough. I don’t have enough experience yet. All leading to I can’t do this. This week I’ve been hearing from clients and those around me a theme and it all boils down to confidence. So I'm here to tell YOU that "you're ready, you're more than good enough and you do have enough experience".

Create success by looking into the future

This week I got the chance to speak at a local networking event. With a remit of kicking off the year with a punch and providing a motivational talk.

Choose success, success on your terms

What will you choose for your business in 2019? What will you strive to achieve? What daily actions will you take to reach and attain your goals? What will success look like?

Choose NOT to be overwhelmed

It’s that time of the year (oh I feel a song coming on) when you're heading to what should be a ‘wonderful time of the year’ (I'm off again). Yet as an entrepreneur and particularly a solopreneur you are can find yourself doubly stressed and completely overwhelmed.

stop trying to control that which you have no control over

A short while ago I wrote a blog asking you to stop worrying about ‘stuff’ out of your control. Since writing, I’ve realised there is another element to this .... to stop trying to control ‘stuff’ out of your control.

Align yourself with your bigger goal
