An Experiment in Abundance

In 2013 I wrote an ebook on green juicing. I offered it for sale from my website in return for donations and was surprised to discover that the average donation was £6, which is about twice as much – or more – as you might expect for an ebook of that length if you sold it on, say, Amazon Kindle. I love this model. I encourage clients who think they cannot afford me to book Abundance Calls ad hoc and pay what they choose by donation. Donations range from £30 to £300. The key to this working successfully is that […]

Spending Money

Yesterday a nice gentleman and former accountant, Neil, came to give my garden the once over. To be fair to him, he was here ten hours so it was more of a twice over. He asked would it be OK to come at 8 a.m. and I said yes, of course. I like an early start myself and I had a long and busy day planned so it suited me fine. He arrived before TUT’s daily message which, when I opened it at about 8.15, said this. How appropriate, I couldn’t have put it better myself: “When you spend money, Judith, whether […]

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 […]

Balancing Your See Saw

When I was little we used to go to the swings and slides in the park and there would always be a see saw. A see saw then was a plank of wood, balanced in the middle, and you and your friend (or you and your brother or sister) would sit on either end and each take it in turns to push off the ground with your feet, one of you would be down on the ground and the other up in the air, or you’d be travelling between the two. That was what passed for fun in the Fifties. […]

Selling from Scarcity or Abundance

I spend quite a lot of time with clients helping them to find ways to sell their products and services, ways which are aligned with their values, aren’t icky and don’t make them feel like a used car salesman. It’s a strange hangover, that one. I’m not sure I’ve ever met yer archetypal used car salesman, have you? And yet we all have the concept in our minds of someone who will say anything and promise everything to make a sale. We don’t want to come over like them, no siree. There are lots of ways to sell, there’ll be […]

Opting In

When I was ten or eleven, I got into my first big trouble with my Dad, for refusing to be confirmed. I think it was my first rebellion. Oddly, I’ve turned out to be very spiritual indeed, I even like a bit of church and I love sacred music and pretty much all church buildings. So, with hindsight, it was a strange choice for my proto rebellion. My Dad wasn’t particularly religious but he was most definitely against rebellion. He was a conformist and his immortal words at the time are still etched on my memory: “If you opt out […]

How I Motivate My Entrepreneur Clients

The short answer is, I don’t. Either my clients are motivated or they are not. I don’t see it as my job to motivate them, carrot and stick. But I do have a trick or two up my sleeve if they have a very special need. Usually such a need is to make a specific sum of money within a certain time frame for a particular purpose. So, for instance, clients might want to make £1,000 before Christmas, or to move house, or to fund a special trip or urgent project. Or they might need to get a certain number […]

How To Become a Money Magnet

See a penny, pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck, so goes the saying. But sod the pennies, its pounds and notes we want, isn’t it? Only recently I was telling a group of clients that the streets of London (and everywhere else) are paved with gold and that we should keep our eyes peeled because money is waiting to be picked up everywhere. Pennies from heaven and notes which others have carelessly let fall lie in wait for us everywhere. T. Harv Eker taught us some special places to look for it and what to say to […]

Lessons From My Self-Employed Clients Today

I learn from my clients every day. Today these are the lessons from my self-employed clients. Actually, these are just the highlights, there were many more. The reasons we became self-employed include the opportunity to do whatever we want, whenever we want. Which means we can craft each and every day, seven days a week, fifty two weeks of the year, uniquely and precisely to be just as we want. So if you want to go to bed with a book with cake and/or biscuits, you can. You can’t get away with that 365 but you can do it whenever […]
