Stuck in the thick of it?

Everyone is saying Yes to work with you - and you feel like 'Yes, this is why I went into business for myself in the first place'. And then you're in the thick of it working with all these wonderful people and out of nowhere you're sitting on your arse watching the tumble-weeds roll by wondering if you'll ever land another client. Mmm, I sure have. When I started...


Hope is not a Strategy

Out at the park with the on the weekend with the kids I had a chance to catch a podcast while they were racing scooters and bikes around in the sun. It featured the marketing genuis Bernadette Jiwa, author of Difference. She shared her insight that businesses often spend a lot of energy leading up to launching or starting up but there isn't much plan for what happens after.

Strategically you can minimise this, and I'll tell you more about that in a moment but for now let’s look closer at...


Does The Perfect Client Exist?

I love what I do. I help amazing women all over the world leverage their passion and expert knowledge to create freedom based incomes. But there was a time when I was not in my zone. I remember working with one client back when my business model was 'I'll help you with anything to do with the technology' (yes, I had some problems finding my niche). Although she was generally what I considered my demographic ideal client eg. 25-50 woman starting a new business ...


3 Ways to stop List Shock when you want them to buy

Congratulations, you've decided it's time to leverage that List that you've been building up all this time and send out a Sales Email.

Why it’s not your email annoying them

"Aren't people annoyed when I email them?" This seems to be the number one thing that is holding otherwise successful business owners back in their online marketing strategy. So I'm going to be straight with you. Yes. Some of the people who subscribe to your list will be annoyed. But like a lot of things in life,it wont be about you at all (you know that argument you had in the parking lot at the mall) . It wont have much to do with whether you email twice daily, weekly or occasionally. It will have more to do with the kind of day they're having, how...
