How to escape the tech overwhelm monsters


Which tech tasks should you tackle yourself … and which outsource?

Allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume and complexity of technology involved in running a business, can be an ingenious and subtle form of self-sabotage and an acceptable cover for procrastination.

In addition, the belief that just because we’re capable of mastering a task, means we therefore should be doing it ourselves, deflects us from our zone of genius and holds back our business growth big time.

But how to decide which tasks you should hang on to and which to outsource to someone else (thereby allowing them to operate in their zone of genius)? (more…)

[Video] Putting the joy back into your business


Want to feel more joyful?

I recently had a conversation with the lovely Lynn Hord, Joy Coach and Bringer of Joy to heart-centred business owners, on how tapping can help you access your joy more readily and bring some fun back into your business and life.

Joy is our birthright and our natural state of being, but with all the pressures of modern-day life, particularly when you’re running a business, it can sometimes be hard to access!

Listen in for a quick and simple way to use tapping when you’re in public, or scroll down for a video tap-along to help you access more joy.

Ways to access joy


What if they don’t get results?


And other self-doubts

I hear this a lot from clients launching new programmes or a high ticket package for the first time.

I’ve had the same self-doubt myself on occasion (who hasn’t?) and expect to again. For me it’s a sure sign I’m on a path to growth.

And there’s a lot of accompanying anxiety:

What if they don't get results? - self-doubts

Seriously, what if I don’t deliver?
What will they say about me?
Will they think I’m a fraud?
Will it mean I’m not good enough?
What if they think I’m useless? (more…)

Is This Really Normal?


Self doubt (and its twin, shame)

It comes up constantly with clients though few will raise how it feels.

They’re passionate souls who want to make a difference and know they’re good at what they do, but OMG when it comes to writing about it, talking about it or (even worse) selling it, all kinds of Inner Gremlins tumble out of the woodwork to stop them, especially if they’re ready to take their business to the next level.

You probably know what I mean?

Those Little Voices in your head that say:

self doubt

  • Who do you think you are?
  • You’re such a fraud
  • You’re not good enough
  • You’re not ready yet
  • No-one will pay you for this
  • Who will listen to you?
  • Nobody wants this
  • They can’t afford it
  • This is never going to work
  • And … you can add to the list 🙂


Fear of success – subtle saboteur


Fear of failure is a common and natural companion to building a business around your gifts.

But what about the fear of success?

Really? Yep, you heard me right. It can be tricky to spot and is far more common than you might think.

Often it’s a fear that success will mean a lot of hard work and an overwhelming pressure to keep delivering results.

Or a fear we won’t have time for ourselves or the people that matter to us.

It comes in many different guises and in my work with clients I’ve noticed there’s a whole cluster of subtly different versions around one specific theme …
