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 […]

Dial Down Your Spinning Mind

Earlier this month I enjoyed a wonderful session with a client just renewing for a second year, and stepping up her commitment to herself and her business by upgrading from Small Business Big Magic, my starter group, to Club 100, my intermediate group. No sooner had she done that than she wrote me an email detailing the various financial and other lucky abundances which had “just dropped into her lap” as a result of her commitment. Magical miracles, until we both remembered that exactly the same thing happened last year when she started with me. It’s that intent, I am […]

My First Proper Book

Three weeks ago I had a mini epiphany when I was out driving the car, as often happens. Driving in a trance has become my new shower equivalent when it comes to creative ideas generation and excavating solutions to problems, mine or yours. I’ve been thinking for what feels like ages about writing, writing more and becoming a writer first and foremost in the sense that I would put Writer in my passport instead of Coach. And yet I am SO not ready to give up coaching and mentoring, in fact I am enjoying that work more than ever right […]

Around My World in 7 Days – She’s Up!

On Thursday, I re-connected with a chap I first met in 2012 when I spoke at the invitation of Action Jackson to the Bold Achievers group of young people in Holloway, North London. This young man distinguished himself that evening by already having published a book for student entrepreneurs, and this week he updated me on how he’d turned that into a business which involved him public speaking and teaching and inspiring others. We were talking in the week between his wedding and his honeymoon, and that gives you a clue to the man. He wanted to look at his […]
