"What will they think of me?" And other fears that are holding you back in your business

in this week's episode of The Meaningful Business Podcast, Holly Worton and I discuss one of the biggest fears we've experienced, something that we also see in clients on a regular basis: What will people think? Will they like me? This is something that I've personally struggled a lot with, and it's something that really held me back in the past. It speaks right to the heart of Feminine Conditioning - we know that as women we're judged and there are SO MANY ways we can be found wanting (in...


How to grow a business when the world is burning

It's been a really fucking awful week. In an age of fear, bigotry, and fascism on the rise, seeing children in cages was a new low for an already horrible regime. With Brexit still on course to wreck it's cultural and economic destruction in my own country, the ongoing Windrush scandal revisiting my own countries vile 'hostile environment' immigration policy, the summer refugee 'season' heating up in the Mediterranean (when God how many people fleeing unimaginable terror in Syria will drown...


Embracing a new culture of email marketing

Today, we talk about how to navigate the new era of email marketing. Hopefully, you've recovered from the GDPR rush of last month, and are ready to plan a new way forward. In this week's episode, we discuss where we think things are going with email marketing. You'll Learn: What the new culture shift with email marketing looks like  Why list building will no longer be the most important thing in marketing  Why this will help us disentangle our worth as entrepreneurs from the size of our...


how to make more money in a way that feels good

One of the things many of us struggle with is the conundrum of how to make more money in a way that feels good - especially in a world that feels so unequal and unfair. Many heart-centered folks really struggle with the concept of charging rates that allow them to thrive - especially for work that feels like it's a gift to them. Throw in our feminine conditioning around putting ourselves last, not asking for our needs, not taking up space etc. and there's little wonder the concept of money...

She also shares her own challenges of moving from being an academic with a steady paycheck to entrepreneur and the big...


Who Heals The Healers?

Today, Holly Worton and I talk about who heals the healers, and who coaches the coaches. Where do we go to get help when we need it? We're not used to being vulnerable, and often we feel like we have to show everyone that we've got our shit together. It can be hard to reach out and ask for help when we're used to being the receptacle for other people's stuff. People always say to be vulnerable and share the shit when we're on the other side and can talk about the learning experience, but...


Courage is a habit with Kate Swoboda aka Kate Courageous

I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of feeling fear. Like many of us, I'll go to great lengths to avoid or run away from anything that's too scary. While this works fine with horror movies and roller coasters (I've spent a lifetime blissfully avoiding pretty much every one of those suckers) it's not such a great strategy when it comes to living a life. Becuase if we want to experience joy, do something new, or just leave the house some days, we're going to have to deal with fear. In...


Breaking The 'Good Girl Rules' with Liz Applegate

My subject of fascination is feminine conditioning (which you can listen to previous podcast episodes where I've talked in more depth about it here and here) - which is another way of describing what my guest on this week's podcast calls 'The Good Girl' rules. Coach Liz Applegate spent a lot of her life following these good girl rules - until she realized they were not only keeping her living a life she no longer wanted but were limiting so many other women from truly being happy. The thing...


Out Of Alignment Or Deep in Fear?

Every month I co-host a podcast episode with Business Mindset Coach, Holly Worton. And today's episode was inspired by a post that someone made in my Holly's Facebook group: “Hey Holly, I’ve been thinking about something just lately, and wondered if anyone has some thoughts about this? When you’re not making the progress you want in your business, how do you know if: You’re reluctant to move out of your comfort zone and step up (in which case, it may be worth pursuing, gently); or 2. What...


Andrea Owen knows how we can all stop feeling like shit

I recently interviewed Andrea Owen about her latest book – and it was awesome. Andrea is funny and honest in a way that only someone who has spent time REALLY getting to grips with the ridiculousness, beauty and pain of life can. You might remember that I’ve interviewed her before for the podcast about how she built a REALLY successful Life Coaching business and about our shared concerns and frustrations for the coaching industry (we really bonded on that one and discovered we both shared...


a simple practice for letting go of the old and welcoming in the new year

I'm no fan of new years resolutions (too much pressure. too much ....Rrrraaaaahhhhh! energy!) But I AM a fan of marking and honoring transitions. Look, I know the Gregorian calendar is a relatively modern invention and the transitioning from one year to the next is essentially an artificial process BUT I still think it's valuable. It's important to have pause points - in our lives and our businesses. Time to reflect and take a step back. Time to take a longer-term view of what's worked and...


Good Boundaries For Your Business

Today, Holly Worton and I talk about business boundaries. This is such an important topic, and yet I don't see people talking about it often enough. This is kind of an extended episode, much longer than our usual 30 minutes. We decided that we had a lot to say, and there's a lot that needs to be considered when it comes to boundaries.when your boundaries are clear and strong, then it makes it so much easier to be resilient in business.

The Road To A Successful Coaching Business with Jessica Nazarali

Building a coaching business can feel isolating, lonely and at times, rather repetitive. It can mess with our heads, our emotions and our decisions can seem to change quicker than the British weather ( that's a lot!) The need for human connection, community and 'oneness' can become an unwanted distraction when busyness rears it's head and takes precedence. So, how can we find meaning in the everyday workings of our business? And, when our heads hits the pillow, how can we be certain that...

Conversational Marketing

Conversational Marketing is a term I've coined to describe a more human way of growing your business - one that's especially needed right now (not to mention perfect if you're a coach, healer or some other relationship focused professional). Many emerging business owners feel increasingly frustrated and downright disheartened because marketing advice makes them feel like they're having to put on a mask and pretend to be something they’re not. And I've got to confess - I did it myself for...


Embrace Failure (because your business depends on it)

You're not going to like it when you first hear it, but I promise you'll thank me. If you want to be happy and successful in your business (whatever your definition of that is) you need to embrace failure. Yep. Embrace failure. We live in this weird world where more and more of our lives are shown as edited highlights. Our social media feeds are dominated by success after smiling success. And it can screw with our heads because it hides the messy reality of being a human. This is...
