My Busy, Busy Life (Not)

When helping a poorly friend recently by delivering some groceries to her when she was too ill to get out of the house, I lost my favourite reading glasses. Sainsbury’s said that no-one had handed them in. It’s a mystery, frankly, as I normally wear them on the top of my head but I bumped into someone I hadn’t seen for eight years – a judge, no less – and it threw me. End result?  No glasses and no shopping list with the judge’s email address scribbled on the back of it. Which led to me being a bit sad […]

Live Online Events: Hay House And The Best Fifty Bucks I Ever Spent

For the last twenty years or so I have lived at Hay House. Hay House is the publishing company founded by Louise Hay and it has been the starting point for most of my studies into my own personal development and spiritual growth. I have been to lots of their events in London and beyond and read their books, bought angel cards and enjoyed audio recordings and more. Almost all of my favourite gurus and teachers are published by HH. I had a client who worked for them and another who pitched successfully to be published by them. Hay House […]

Get It Done: The Importance Of Focus For Entrepreneurs

I know first hand and from my clients that focus is the number one challenge for us multi-tasking entrepreneurs. And in that, we are our own worst enemy. So, are you asking yourself first every day – what one thing would really move my business forward today, and then doing it – FIRST? No, I thought not! Fancy giving it a try, though? When I say one thing, I mean one project for this week, or even for this month, and then getting a list of the things which need doing within that project.   If you are working alone, then you […]

Perpetual Debt: Debts Which Are Impossible To Repay

I am a regular user of Mary Hunt’s Rapid Debt Repayment Calculators on her website for my own finances and for those of my clients. Last night I was working with the RDRC and I saw something for the first time in all my many years of using Mary’s calculators for their intended purpose, finding the fastest and/or cheapest way to repay unsecured debt . When I put in some figures, the website flashed up a warning in red. According to our calculations, this debt can never be repaid. At first I thought it was an error, but I checked […]

I’m Rich Beyond My Wildest Dreams, I am, I am, I am

I am grateful to Thomas L. Pauley and Penelope J. Pauley for their book “I’m Rich Beyond My Wildest Dreams, I am, I am, I am. I have owned a copy of this book in the past. I remember it on my bookshelves, and I have a quotation from it written inside one of my note books which I am still using to list my gratitudes. But I don’t think I’d read it all the way to the end and I certainly hadn’t put into practice the wisdom contained in it, or not with any regularity anyhow. And because of […]

Avalanches Of Abundance: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr Joseph Murphy

I am grateful to Peggy McColl who shared this excerpt taken from The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy in her ezine this week: Money is a symbol Money is a symbol of exchange. It means to you not only freedom from want, but beauty, luxury, abundance, and refinement. It is merely a symbol of the economic health of the nation. When your blood is circulating freely in your body, you are healthy. When money is circulating freely in your life, you are economically healthy. When people begin to hoard money, to put it away in tin […]

Why Should You Read (or Re-Read) The E-Myth Revisited?

If you have started to work for yourself or run your own small business, it won’t be long before some well-meaning pal, coach or colleague in the same boat suggests you “should” read The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber. If you are an entrepreneur, comme moi, I bet you just hate the word should in that sentence. Me too. But I have read it and here’s why you might make that choice too. The E-Myth (for short) is a book originally written a while back by Michael Gerber, and hence the Revisited bit of the title, it was updated […]

Stuck? How To Fall In Love With Your Business All Over Again

I think it’s imperative to be in love with your business at some level.   If not, it’s a drag.   Do you love yours?   And like a partner, friend, child or parent you love, do you demonstrate that in all that you do at work? If you don’t love your business right now, do you think you could get back there? Or is it a hopeless case? Do you need to ditch it and move on and re-create?   Or are there some parts I can help you to salvage and re-build the rest? Let’s examine what constitutes a business to […]

Money-Making Magic, Abundance, Good Fortune & Business Alchemy

What I wanted to write about today is free – its my Money-Making Magic Google Group – and a phenomenon which is going on there right now as my pal Bianca pointed out to me earlier today. Quite a number of us are participating in Rachel Elnaugh’s Business Alchemy and sharing our experiences in the group. This is wonderful in many different ways. I know it’s strengthening my own experience of participating in Rachel’s programme but it means the group is focusing on abundance instead of lack and that abundance seems to be rubbing off on all of us. The […]
