It’s good enough for now

Ever been working on a really important project and found yourself getting stuck and just not making the sort of progress you want to?  This was me a couple of years ago – I had something relatively straightforward to do, but ended up spending a WHOLE day on it – and at the end of that day, I still felt…

How I Found my “Thing” (aka Purpose)

A few years ago I felt inspired to create a series of blog posts and videos about my first few years in business, partly to show that slow and uncertain starts are more the norm than the exception, and to show that things are often very different behind the scenes to how they look from the outside.

Niche

Do I really need to niche if I want clients?

It was only last month that I opened the doors to the Business from the Heart Membership and invited new “Hearties” into the fold.   So right now I’m in that phase of getting to know our new members, and helping them with their questions – and confusions!

On “keeping up” – and why Tortoises go faster

I filmed this video while attending an event in Toronto in Canada a while ago – and it’s become one of those really important videos that I’ve shared over and over again both within my membership community and with clients.

How I Grew My Business

How I Grew My Business

I created this video a number of years ago just as I was celebrating my 6th year in business (I recently celebrated my 10th!).  However while it was recorded a few years ago, everything I say is as relevant today as it was then. In it I talk about some of the key milestones I passed during my first two…

Can I be "heart-centred" and still be successful?

Can I be Heart-Centred and still be successful?

“Heart-Centred” is a phrase that I use a lot when talking about my approach to business. I first heard it at a time when I was struggling to define who I was in business and who I was here to serve.   When I came across it I instantly felt:  “That’s it!  That’s me… and those are my clients!”.
