breaking business records, success and behind the scenes of This is Lifeblood. Alice Nicholls interviews Claire Baker for her eCourse Hello Blog Academy.

Last month I celebrated my one year anniversary since leaving my “day job” and launching into the world of full time self-employment. And so far, so good! Actually, it really is just SO good.

I love working for myself. I love my clients, I love creating and writing and coaching and at this point in my life, I can’t imagine going back to work for anyone else. The feeling of supporting myself 100% and the freedom this work provides for me… Leaves me a little speechless.

Well, that last part isn’t entirely true because my incredibly successful and wonderful friend Alice Nicholls recently interviewed me for her latest online course Hello Blog Academy and I had a LOT to say!

Alice has generously allowed me to share our chat with YOU! I know (if you’re interested in the “behind the scenes” of online business and success and blogging and coaching and creativity and all that delicious jazz) you’ll get a lot from it. It’s these types of honest conversations we need to be having MORE of in the online business world. (And perhaps less of the “I’m making six figures a year!!” without the rest of the story… You know?)

Alice and I talk about…

+ My “biggest” day in business yet after the launch of my eCourse Wild, Well & Creative and how it felt to break my own business record. And how I kind of wanted to throw it all in the day before launching. (Seriously!)

+ The ‘flow’ of my online business and the different ‘faces’ of my business over the past few years; from study to coaching to digital products, leaving my day job, hosting workshops, creating courses and more.

+ ‘Raving fans’ and what they mean for your business.

+ How I decide what to create to sell to the world.

+ How I validate my ideas before I begin to work on projects and offerings.

+ How I find a balance between my inner artist and my inner critic. 

+ Dealing with self doubt and the relationship between fear and creativity in our work.

+ What I feel are key components of creating success within an online business. 

+ What ‘success’ looks like for me. 

+ My thoughts around consistency, authenticity and showing up online.
