Podcast Ep 149: To Do Lists

Today on Own It! the Podcast, we are up to show 149 and it’s all about Confidence, Belief and To Do Lists. Nicola and I rehearsed in advance that we would talk about the tyranny of the To Do List, but (typically) she surprised me on the day by rolling another couple of aspects into it, namely self-confidence and self-belief. She is seeing them all very much intertwined this week in her work with her clients and club members. LISTEN HERE TO OWN IT! the PODCAST 149: Confidence, Beliefs and To Do Lists. Nicola and I swapped some thinking about […]

Seasons and Renewal Cycles – Podcast Ep 148

Today I returned to the podcast after five weeks off for my August holiday, during which time Nicola was very well served by my honourable stand-ins Georgina Noel, Jo Dodds, Susan Weeks, Lisa Warner and Rosie Slosek. And my August has been so jam-packed I couldn’t possibly fill her in with everything I’d been up to, or we’d still be talking about it at Christmas, such is my enthusiasm for my holiday, my return to work, my book and Facebook Page marketing. LISTEN HERE TO TODAY’s SHOW – OWN IT! the Podcast – Are You A Quester? I did tell […]

August, I Have Loved You

Dear August, how wonderful you have been this year, 2017! I have had such a lovely time and I feel very fortunate indeed. The last ten days or so I had planned to be properly “off” work and I’ve not done very much at all except to have fun with friends and go to a couple of parties and do some reading and writing, resting up and recharging my batteries for the coming September term. But before I knocked off for that R&R I wrote a list on Facebook of all the things August had been to me, so that […]

It’s Raining Men – Hallelujah!

When I was first a coach in the early Noughties, I used to attract a disproportionate amount of men as clients, given that it is a generally accepted principle that most participants in the wider word of personal development are women. Then that fell away and I reverted to “normal”; for some time now men have been quite the rarity. Except for Richard, Kevin, John, and another Richard. That first Richard was the only man at my annual summer party a few years back, in amongst about forty women, and he didn’t seem to mind it one bit, brave man! But this summer, […]

Days Like Sue: Thank You for Believing

No sooner had I told Nicola on the podcast that testimonials are hard to come by than a second one came flooding in. Two in as many weeks! This one is from Sue and, as you will see, I have her permission to share: “Hi Judith, I wanted to say a belated thank you for our session. I absolutely loved the idea of using a Facebook Business page as a “precursor” to my website. I have been struggling massively with trying to get a website up and running and so this was music to my ears. I also want to […]

Podcast Ep 142: Working or Paying for Website Traffic

Today Nicola and I debate the different ways to create traffic for your website, or Facebook Page or opt-in. Nicola likes to pay for her traffic and automate the process as much as possible. I, on the other hand, do the opposite – typical! I do what she calls working for it, which means blogging and social media. I don’t pay. Yet. But there’s one vital difference beween us two – she’s selling digital products, and I’m selling a service. I’m selling me. So I don’t see it so much as work as sharing myself online with my potential client. […]

Podcast Ep 141: Investing in a Business App

Today’s client challenge of the week is brought to us by former Club 100 client Karen Wilmot, who lives in Oman. Karen is The Virtual Midwife, and she wanted to know should she be investing in a business app, so that clients around the world can have a wonderful easy and accessible way to work with her on their breathing during pregnancy and labour. Given the average age of a woman having a baby would put her right in the app generation I think it’s a good idea. And Nicola gives us chapter and verse on how much it costs […]

What’s Knocked You Off Your Certainty?

During my conversation with E, she reminded me of a couple of things which affect a lot of my clients, especially newbies but not exclusively so as you will read in her own story. The first one was that she felt she had lost her way, her niche, her focus. Actually when she told me about herself and her four decades of experience in her profession and the results she’s achieved and her high profile in syndicated columns and having been a talk show host, and particularly about her best clients, those who are still with her after many years […]
