All the Aspects of Being an Entrepreneur

Recently I awoke to what was perhaps the best testimonial I have ever received, see below from Alison. If I were ranking my testimonials – which happily I am not ‘cos that would be bizarre and just wrong, right? – it would be right up there very close to the top of my top ten. I am sharing Alison’s preamble too as there’s learning in it for us all. Answers on a postcard please to what that is! “Dear Judith, I have been on your mailing list since 2008 – and so pleased that we have finally connected. Your advice and input has […]

Certainty and Wisdom

Thank you to all those who wrote in after last week’s newsletter. You make my day when you do that. It is the way to this writer’s heart. Thanks to Katherine who sent me this photo. You can find more of her cross stitch patterns featuring quirky quotes and beautiful word clouds at her Etsy shop KeenStitch. Liz and I had an exchange of emails as we are wont to do, always a meeting of minds. And words. And Sarah, who is a client who gives me the BEST testimonials, sent in another one. Let me be clear… it isn’t […]

Your Own Definition of Amazing

Sam Bell said something nice about me on Facebook on International Women’s Day and included me in a group of just four women she thought to mention as inspiring – that’s me and Yvonne Halling, Lady Gaga and Helen Mirren. Wow! Helen Mirren is on my vision board, my personal inspiro-girl. I’ve never wanted to be like Gaga, though undoubtedly she is a Top Bird; I’m a fan without being a wannabe. What I liked especially about Sam’s feedback was that she appreciated me for precisely the things which I already know and love about myself, thus reinforcing them. And […]

Are You Looking the Right Way?

I once ran a conference for 200 people. One of the attendees didn’t like it and asked for his money back. I was sad. Later that same week I went out to lunch with a man, an accounting client, the CEO of his own business. One look at my face and he wanted to know what was wrong. I told him about the one. He was totally amazed. He said he never expected to please more than 50% of any room, let alone 99.5% as I had done. What on earth was the matter with me? Why was my focus […]

Feedback for SBBM: Angela, Linda and Michi

“I’m so grateful and appreciative of you and your support as part of this group. You’ve helped me get into a position that I never expected to be in. Your level of focus, commitment and passion is remarkable. You have a natural warmth without being fluffy (SO my kind of woman!) and you are so easy to trust and take advice from. I tend to be a ‘I know best!’ type person with a lot of my friends and co-workers so it always surprises me how naturally I take on-board things you say. I always feel supported with you at […]

Not a Wimpy Coach

Another testimonial has flooded in, this time from Sam who is a long-time and loyal client in Club 100. “You are so kind, generous, and abundant.  Thank you for keeping the faith in me when I didn’t.  And thank you for continuing to hold it in a safe place for me to access when I need it.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate having you as my coach. I feel truly blessed. The 30 Day Challenge helped me prove to myself that I could write, and it also brought you into my awareness.  I remember listening to the […]

Down to Earth Business Adviser

It’s that time of year when I ask clients to send in new testimonials so I can keep up to date with what they appreciate about me and my coaching groups. Its always good to read that in their own words. It helps to attract new clients and it helps prospective clients know the people they will be working alongside. The first past the post is from Kath, an artist who lives in Spain. Do promise me you’ll take a look at Kath’s website please, you’ll be glad you did. She’s a new addition to Small Business Big Magic and […]

Lynsey: Small Business Support

It’s testimonial day today and I am sharing another, this time from Lynsey who’s talking about the small business support she appreciates in Club 100: “I think what you offer in Club 100 is wonderful. The combination of the coaching, group and Monday chats works really well. Knowing there is some support available in some form all the time makes a huge difference. It’s a lovely way to make new friends that are at a similar stage in their business and I enjoy watching people come and go each bringing something new to the group.” Lynsey Whitehouse, Brainy Girls Guide to Business […]

Cristina: Hand in Hand, Heart to Heart

One of my clients (who is ideal in SO many ways) sent me this unsolicited testimonial this week, just as she was renewing for a second year: “Dear Judith, It’s been over year since we started working together, you as my coach/master/supervisor. I have enjoyed the journey with you, feeling supported during the rough times of my business journey, encouraged when it comes to my creativity, but even better, expanding on my ideas and projects making my identity as a life coach. One of the things that I love most about working with you is the enormous support I get […]
