Want a peek behind the scenes of my business? A video for you! (Especially if you’re an aspiring coach)
It’s almost been four years since I started blogging / sharing online and August of 2016 marks two years since I ‘quit my day job’ and decided to take this self-employed thang full time. It’s been one hell and heaven of a ride! I wouldn’t have any of it any other way. I was recently asked some […]
No one makes the big and brave decision to work for themselves because they want to feel exhausted, uninspired and pissed off with their business. And yet, halfway through last year, I found myself feeling all of the above. I feared the romance was over. I was tired, headache-y and had this strange sense of being […]
Breaking business records, success and behind the scenes of This is Lifeblood: Alice Nicholls interviews me!
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!
Often, we teach what we most need to learn. And there’s no doubt that creating my eCourse Wild, Well & Creative has been a million and one lessons, in creativity, wellness, femininity – and general project management.
Last week, after months and months (and months) of behind the scenes and sneak peaks and preparation, I threw open the doors to Wild, Well & Creative. The response has been wonderful!! I have been so honoured and excited to see so many women jumping on board to join me on this adventure, plus the encouragement and cheers around the web (and flowers delivered to my door!) have just made this experience so wonderful.
So today, as the last few days of enrolments draw to a close and I anticipate the “kick off” next week for Module One, I thought I’d share 10 of the many lessons I’ve learnt whilst creating this eCourse.
Whether you’re working on your own blog, business, eBook, eCourse, workshop – whatever (or you’re just here for the pretty pictures!), I truly hope you get something out of this.
There’s nothing quite like witnessing something that had lived for so long as simply a figment of your imagination, a snippet of your wildest dreams or scribbles on the page, manifest as something real and tangible. Something that you can touch, smell, feel; a real life experience. To see a much-loved project come together after hours and days and weeks and months of planning is something pretty spectacular indeed.
If you’ve been hanging out here for a little while, you’ll know that I’ve been promising a series on MONEY before the end of the year. I’m really, really excited to share my ‘money story’ with you (it goes something like this: crap with money and in loads of debt to Budgeting Queen with an actual savings account in a relatively short space of time).
But, it just ain’t coming together.
And believe me, I’ve seriously dedicated real time to it; I have pages upon pages of scrawled notes, Post-Its in books I want to reference, about 1500 words in a Pages doc and a draft blog post in Wordpress, with a pretty image and all.
But, it just ain’t coming together.
I received a great email last week from a reader/past client of mine… She’s a wonderful health coach and blogger (and all-round lovely human being) and was keen for some advice on how she could get her blog noticed and take things to the next level. Fab! So, I thought I’d share my tips with you too…
“I would like to get my name out there more, especially in the realm of being interviewed by fellow health coaches or wellbeing blogs. I’d also really like to find more clients. How do I go about doing that? What’s the best way to let people know I exist, what I’m all about and drum up enough interest for them to want to feature me on their site?”
SUCH GREAT QUESTIONS. My reply? Read below…
