In episode 105 of Own It! the Podcast, Nicola and I debate what to do when you don’t know what to do in our Client Challenge of the Week. Nicola talks about creating a self-imposed deadline, the value of journaling, seeking out inspirational input including asking your guru(s) via social media, WWJD (what would Jesus do?) bracelets, mentors and being ready to ignore all their advice, getting into momentum and Big Magic. WWJD I pointed out also stands for What Would Judith Do and we got a great big LOL out of that!! And I talk about doing nothing for […]
Who knows when creative people start something how long it will last? Today both Nicola and I are celebrating our podcast – Own It! Your Business AND Your Life – lasting for 100 episodes which is the best part of two years as we started in December 2014. Who knew? Certainly not us! And there have certainly been bumps along the way, but we’ve survived and thrived. And now it occurs to me that our podcast is a mini-biz, certainly a business asset which it is our opportunity as loving parents to continue to nurture and grow. So that’s our […]
Today marks the day of recording the 100th episode of Own It! The Podcast with my poddie partner, Nicola Cairncross. And we are going to make our own opportunity with the podcast into Challenge Opportunity of the Week. What has our podcast ever done for us? It has brought us both new clients. It has consolidated relationships with existing clients. It led to our creation of Own It! The Virtual Summit wherein we interviewed 18 entrepreneurs who run their businesses and live a life Beyond the Laptop. We turned that into our first podcast revenue by selling the recordings and we […]

A good marketing week is one where you get to see the results on your marketing efforts. The vast majority of my marketing is done online. I don’t leave home for two reasons: I don’t like networking and I want my business to be global and the best way to reach out to the world is via the internet. I’ve been found by three different people for two different reasons this week, and they were all online. Two people who could only have found me via my website and blog and social media are a publisher and a journalist. The […]

Saturday 11.42 Nicola initiates contact via Skype. I am on a call with […]
