As entrepreneurs we all want success. Often we want what 'they've' got; the business, product, idea or success that we perceive the business owner we admire, or the one we see on social media has achieved. But I'm here to tell you that not all businesses are not created equal. While I'm the first one to give credit to those business owners who make it all look so simple, the reality is, what appears simple is li...

Confidence is a skillset, and it’s something today’s guest, qualified specialist in human behavioural performance, Mel Schilling, says can be learned. For those of us who weren’t born with natural confidence, yep I’m talking to my fellow introverts out there, or anyone listening who finds imposter syndrome creeping into the way you conduct your business or life, the idea that we can become more confident, feels pretty damn good.

In May 2015, today’s guest Chelsea Pottenger, found herself suicidal and in a mental hospital. For Chelsea, a self-confessed high achiever and Type A personality, it was the last thing she expected to happen when she gave birth to her first child.

But rather than wondering why this had happened to her, Chelsea viewed her predicament as an opportunity. As part of her recovery she studied psychology and radically shifted her prioritie...

What’s a lead magnet, should you be using them as a tool to grow your business, and are they really worth the time and effort? 

Personally, I love a great lead magnet. It’s a way of providing your ideal client a valuable tool to help them in their life or business, and in return you get the email address of a warm lead that you can nurture and turn into a raving fan. 

Lead magnets can provide a snap shot of your services and show you...

How good would it be if we started a business and the clients just appeared, no effort required. Arguably, one of the easiest ways to market your business is via one to one connection with your ideal customer and once upon a time, with a new networking event to attend every other week, it was possible to share your business with prospective clients easily. However, the pandemic put the kibosh on events and for the most part, opport...

Hustle culture! If you’re a regular listener you’ll know how much I dislike the concept. But not buying into it, is one of those things I have to actively work at every single day because it’s so easy for me to say yes to everyone and everything and before I know it I’m booked out, stressed out and the hustle almost does me in. I’m wishing the weeks away to get beyond the latest work load, all of my own doing I might add. Anyone el...

What would it take for you to quit your job and start your own business? More money, more courage, a push in the way of a redundancy or a toxic work environment, or would you need a sure-fire guarantee that you’d succeed?

Like the ex that broke your heart, the frenemy that just seems to always turn up at the same events as you or the schmoozing uncle from Bridget Jones Diary you’d rather avoid, we’ve been dancing around the R word, the Recession we might have to have, for the last few months.

Considered an unavoidable part of the business cycle, it seems that Australia has gone through a recession pretty much every ten years or so since the 70s, I’m ...

Are you good with money, got your sh*t together or is it a constant struggle? For most people money and personal finance aren’t on the top of the to-do list. Finance can be boring, complicated and often we think we’ll never get a handle on it, so it’s easier to forget it altogether than confront it. But the reality is, when it comes to women and finance there’s still a massive financial gap in salaries, super, investments and pensi...

Today’s guest, internationally renowned speaker and meditation teacher and founder of The Broad Place Jacqui Lewis has cre...

It’s the year 2022 where every day brings change and anything still seems possible. However, despite the possibilities, women continue the fight to close the gender pay gap and for a place at the table in boardrooms, senior management and on the political stage. Gender bias and inequality continue in many countries and within business. And so it comes as no surprise that women, the big losers when it came to employment cuts during ...

As we head into a new financial year, the pandemic has taken a back seat to world events and local natural disasters. Both are impacting our daily lives. There’s food and energy shortages and as inflation increases, so does the cost of living and the cost of doing business. We’re all feeling it in the hip pocket and for lots of small business owners that means our customers stop buying and once again, we’re left wondering where the...

    We’re taking a detour from regular programming today to discuss a subject that is still considered taboo in many cultures. It used to be referred to as “change of life” when I was growing up and it certainly wasn’t discussed in public. Now it’s known as the M word.

    While we’re happier to have an open conversation about perimenopause and menopause there’s still very little information around that’s digestible or helpful. The rabbit h...

    A decision to outsource your business finances, whether that’s day-to-day bookkeeping or your end of financial year tax return, should give you peace of mind and the confidence that the finances are under control. However, as we approach the pointy end of the financial year, business owners often shine a spotlight on their finances and the financial partners they’ve hired to help them out.

    So, what should you expect from your busine...
