4 Steps to creating 12 months of content

How to create 12 months of Content

For many in my community,  January is a month of planning and putting things in place to make the rest of the year run more smoothly.  So it seems like the perfect opportunity to add in some strategic planning for one of the areas of business that it is easy to overlook or that gets squeezed out in all the…

My Money Story

My Personal Money Story

This week while I’m “talking money stuff” and sharing Ann Wilson’s Financial Freedom Workshop series it feels like the perfect time to share this video about my personal Money Story again – it was originally recorded several years ago, but it is still an accurate summary of my money journey to that point. **NOTE:   This was recorded several years ago…


Why I break for Christmas (and think you should too)

By the time you’re reading this, it’ll be the last working week before Christmas here at Selling from the Heart HQ. From 16th December we close the office for the whole of the Christmas period, until Monday 3rd January. We’ll be putting the “out of office” on the inbox and the phone service, and going off to have some genuine…

What 8 years in business has taught me

What 12 Years in Business Has Taught Me

It was October 2010. I’d recently qualified as an NLP Practitioner, hypnotherapist and coach. And always one to do things “properly”, I’d registered my business as a sole trader and set up a business bank account – after all I needed somewhere to pay in that £60 I got from my first ever paying client! Incredibly, that was 12 years…

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!”. That little…

Therapist talking to client, client looks unhappy

Why selling by the session hurts everyone

Today I want to talk to you about why selling your services by the session or by the hour is not only hurting your business, but it’s also hurting your clients. I’ve had two recent personal experiences that have really highlighted this for me and have inspired me to record this video for you. Watch the video or scroll down…

I really struggle to sell myself

Today I want to talk about a phrase that I often hear: “I really struggle when it comes to selling myself.” Every time I hear it, I just think: “Ouch, no wonder you’re finding it difficult!” You see, to me the idea of needing to sell yourself, feels like such a lot of pressure. In fact, I would hate it…

It's good enough for now

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…

Why would they spend money on me?

“Why would they spend their money on me?”

There is a block that is really surprisingly common amongst the types of heart-centered business owners that I tend to work with: Doubting the value that you can bring your clients, doubting your own value, and doubting the value of the work that you do – they’re all slightly different, but closely related. Watch the video or scroll down to…

Remember Zippy from Rainbow?

Remember Zippy from Rainbow?

I might be at risk of showing my age with this one… but do you remember Zippy from Rainbow? Poor old Zippy, he had a zip instead of lips so when he went “on and on” talking too much his friends would just grab one end of the zip and pull it round to shut him up! Do you need…

The Pushmi-Pullyu of Sales Conversations

The Pushmi-Pullyu of the Sales Conversation

Today I want to talk to you about the Pushmi-Pullyu of the sales conversation. Do you remember the Pushmi-Pullyu? If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a two-headed animal who has a head on opposing sides of his body. He’s a character from the book and the film Dr. Doolittle. There’s actually a Pushmi-Pullyu in your sales conversations too! What…

Being more of a Tortoise

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. And it’s because it’s such an important message about something that I see holds people back in their business far…
