The problem is...so what's the point? (and other things we say)

blog image The Problem is so what's the point 900x600.png

If you've ever listened to The Happy Healthy Entrepreneur Podcast, or you receive my weekly newsletter, you'll often hear me talk about how the entrepreneurial journey is one big old rollercoaster ride - full of ups and downs, and twists and turns.

What you'll also hear me say is that the rocky ride is all quite normal and expected; and actually, the closer we can sail to the reality of that, the less likely we are to feel frustrated, fed up, or disappointed when things don't go our way....

Feel Like Giving Up? This may help...

The Urge To Give Up and what To do about it 600x900.png

Do you get those days where you just feel like giving up?

Where everything feels really hard and you think to yourself, I'm just not cut out for this! 

It could be about something technical that's proving too difficult, or earning enough money to cover the bills each month, or even trying to juggle running a business alongside having a family. It can leave people feeling really frustrated, or even sad. Frustration is a strong emotion.

Maybe you go and eat something (that you're not...

Permission To Take A Load Off!

Permission to take a load off.png

There's a scene in Pretty Women where Vivian (Julia Roberts) tells Edward (Richard Gere) to 'take a load off'.

Now, maybe she thought he was wearing too many layers, or perhaps her invitation was to chill out because as CEO of his own company, he was behaving a little stressed out and busy. 

Have you noticed that as business owners, we're very good at adding more to our To Do List? We fill our weeks with so much stuff!

We don't notice it at first, we think we're helping ourselves. 'if I...

Blog Post: Dealing with disappointment and setback (the story of my week!)

Dealing with Disappointmentand setbacks sized for FB.png

I felt the pop in my calf and instantly knew something was wrong. Minutes earlier I'd been happily hitting a tennis ball over the net, and now I was hobbling about in agony. 

It was a sprain in my calf muscle, and little did I know that my mode of transport, for now, would be...a shiny new pair of crutches. That wasn't in the plan for this week?

Derailed. Somewhat. 

So what happens when things don't go to plan? When we get thrown a few curveballs we weren't expecting, yet the...

FB Blog and Social Media Image Podcast ep 30, is it possible to launch without burnout_.png

This week on the podcast, I talk about launching, as I ask the question: is it possible to launch without burning out? 

I’m at a stage in my business, where I’m about to launch an online programme that I’ve been planning and creating this year, and it’s the first time I’ve launched anything properly, in any kind of process-driven way. Exciting times! 

So, I’ve been following Kathryn Hocking’s Ecourse Launch Formula, where she teaches step by...

Blog Post: Focus On The Process, Not The Outcome

_If you focus on theprocess, you aremore likely to attain the outcome_.png

I've been reading George Kao's book Joyful Productivity, and I really like this quote: "If you focus on the process, you are more likely to attain the outcome."

I like it because as business owners, I think we sometimes (quite innocently) focus our attention in the wrong direction. We focus on: 
- Having enough money in our every month; 
- A diary full of clients;
- Every place sold on our online course;
- Having a best seller on Amazon;
- Losing weight.

Although these are all...
