Is It Silly or Unrealistic to Think You Can Create a Living Doing What You Love?

Is it silly or unrealistic to think you can create a living doing what you love? The first ebook I ever wrote was called Creating a Business to Love. But, of late, my clients are saying they don’t necessarily want to create a business, more that they want to create an income doing what they love. The times they are a-changing. And – frankly – I agree with them. I don’t want to create a business anymore either. I’m sure that’s no accident that I am attracting like minds. Today I have enjoyed an email correspondence with a client about […]

Testimonial: Time To Find Your Niche

This morning I awoke to an unexpected and unsolicited testimonial from a woman I have worked with on and off since 2009. Currently we are in an off period. I wanted to share her words with you because there are a couple of points in it which I think will be valuable to readers: Hi Judith How are things with you? I know we haven’t spoken much over the last few months but I still enjoy reading your newsletter and now also your podcast with Nicola. You are often in my thoughts, especially the pearls of wisdom you’ve dispensed over […]

SBBM: What Are the Drop-in Calls Like?

I asked my clients in Small Business Big Magic to let me know what they appreciate about the ten x 90-minute group drop-in calls each month. What are the drop-in calls like? Here’s what they said: I like listening to others and understanding their businesses and the challenges they face. If I have something specific I want to talk about, I have found the process of getting clear about what my challenge is, so that I can describe it to you as clearly as possible without rambling, is usually enough for me to then figure out my own answer, but […]

Gleaming New Testimonials for Club 100

I asked my lovely clients in Club 100 if they could give me some gleaming new testimonials for my sales page. Here they are… I’ll add to them as they come in. “When I came to Club 100 I needed to get a grip with my money and get focused so I could begin to increase my income and do the most profitable things in my business. I lacked the focus, willpower and know how. I have now stripped my products back to only two focused offerings, have completed my accounts before they are due and have a plan to […]

An Abundance of Gifts from Generous Clients

Recently I have been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of an abundance of gifts from generous clients. I do not invite or solicit or expect gifts. No gifts are required. If you are a client, please do not immediately rush to send me something. Honest! However I do think it is important to be grateful and therefore I am going to list the gifts incoming and be thankful for them. One of my clients makes crafty things. She sent me a little pink duvet for Mitsy. Mitsy studiously ignored it except once to be sick on it. […]

How to Ask for What You Want

One of my clients is very diligent. By which I mean she goes off and does the things I recommend when she asks me for a solution to problems she’s encountering in growing her business. Whilst diligence in a client is very nice, it isn’t a requirement of mine. I’ m just as happy if a conversation we have triggers a choice of your own. I’m not wedded to you doing it my way. Honest. But I want to share a story today of my diligent client and I have her permission. She’s training to be a coach. When we […]

What Clients Say About Learning Cashflow 101

I asked three clients to share their experience of learning Cashflow 101. In the morning, we play by the rules. In the afternoon, we throw the rule book out of the window. *** “Although I’ve been conscious for some time of the effect our intentions can have on our actions, it’s been a bit of a dormant hidden thought, one that I don’t bring out in the cold light of day, for fear it will disintegrate once under the scrutiny of ‘rational/logical/normal people – even though I am one of those people.  And because of this fear, I don’t actively […]
