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 […]

I’ll Show ‘Em! A Red Rag To This Entrepreneurial Bull

A few years back I decided I was going to grow tomatoes. A friend had grown some tiny tomato plants from the seeds of another, real tomato and a second friend had been given some free tomato plants.

April 2010 as A Social Entrepreneur: Following Universal Nudges

I still desperately want to launch the new T1ME website by Easter, but that deadline comes and goes without achieving that result. On 6th April I have a very useful consultation with Philip Stanley, the MinuteCoach, and he says I won’t find it difficult to harness people to my vision.   He’s proved right over the ensuing couple of months.   I draw up a document to send to people I want to attract to work with me. Initially my thoughts are that I want one of each of the 8 Wealth Profiles on the team of Head Office visionaries but I am soon […]
