Good Bloody Question! Sam’s Club 100 Story

“In August 2013 I signed up for one of Judith’s Entrepreneur Of The Day calls. I answered her questions and spoke about my business for about 30 minutes. Then, after several minutes of insightful observations, I cried out “I’m a writer! I want to be a writer!”, to which she replied “Of course you are! So why are you arsing around with all the other stuff?!” Good bloody question! Within a month I was the newest member of Club 100 and I’m still a member today. What I Get In a nutshell, what I get is an experienced, creative, open, […]

Sanity, Confidence and Value: Alison’s SBBM Story

“Last week, I was working on a quote for a new client. It was a fairly complex project, potentially spanning six months or more, with some large figures involved. I was getting nervous.  It’s a lot of money! What if he says no?  Should I drop my price?  I know, I’ll back it up with lots of really detailed information to justify the investment! Agh! What should I do?  I’ll ask Judith! I emailed Judith my quote and called into one of the SBBM group calls.  She carefully went through the figures, verified that I was on the right track, […]

A Huge Factor in My Success: Margaret’s SBBM Story

“I have gone through different seasons with my business and have been in and out of different coaching situations as my work has changed and grown. I’ve been a part of Small Business Big Magic for several years now and can honestly say that I’ve never for a split second considered changing that. Judith is a delight: Tremendously supportive, organized, and on-point without being formulaic or dogmatic as so many coaches can be. The regularly-scheduled calls are the high points in my month, each sparking days and days of inspiration and forward momentum. And the small group format is very […]

Testimonials: The Lifeblood of Any Business

Testimonials are the lifeblood of any business. Here are a few recent ones I am saving, recording and sharing. With thanks to these fabulous women who took the time to share their thoughts and feelings with me. This is appreciated more than you can ever know. Joanna “Exactly a year ago I took up Judith’s offer of a free call during which I blurted out a whole lot of ideas of what I thought I could do with my video marketing business. I knew I wanted to take my business in a different direction but I didn’t know which direction. […]

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 […]

Testimonial: The Coach We All Want

Recently I made a new virtual friend in Texas. Here’s the testimonial E sent me after she booked one of my Entrepreneur of the Day calls: “I very much appreciate the generous gift of your time to help me clear my mind this morning. I cannot thank you enough for your wisdom, clarity and meeting me exactly where I am. I love the “let’s cut to the chase” no nonsense approach and grounded suggestions. This call with you was vastly different than other “strategy” calls I’ve had; no salesy talk, no marketing, just being interested in me, listening and being […]

Testimonial: Gold-Dusted Goodies

I often dream about my clients, about them personally and about thoughts and ideas and solutions for them. A few weeks ago a client let me know she’d had a dream about me and sent me this testimonial with permission to share in one of my newsletters. What a gift from her to me is this? “I had a dream last week which you were in. At the end of the dream you gave me a present, a little see-through plastic box containing 12 dark chocolate truffles. Each had gold dust sprinkled on the top. When I remembered the dream […]

All the Aspects of Being an Entrepreneur

Recently I awoke to what was perhaps the best testimonial I have ever received, see below from Alison. If I were ranking my testimonials – which happily I am not ‘cos that would be bizarre and just wrong, right? – it would be right up there very close to the top of my top ten. I am sharing Alison’s preamble too as there’s learning in it for us all. Answers on a postcard please to what that is! “Dear Judith, I have been on your mailing list since 2008 – and so pleased that we have finally connected. Your advice and input has […]

Certainty and Wisdom

Thank you to all those who wrote in after last week’s newsletter. You make my day when you do that. It is the way to this writer’s heart. Thanks to Katherine who sent me this photo. You can find more of her cross stitch patterns featuring quirky quotes and beautiful word clouds at her Etsy shop KeenStitch. Liz and I had an exchange of emails as we are wont to do, always a meeting of minds. And words. And Sarah, who is a client who gives me the BEST testimonials, sent in another one. Let me be clear… it isn’t […]

Your Own Definition of Amazing

Sam Bell said something nice about me on Facebook on International Women’s Day and included me in a group of just four women she thought to mention as inspiring – that’s me and Yvonne Halling, Lady Gaga and Helen Mirren. Wow! Helen Mirren is on my vision board, my personal inspiro-girl. I’ve never wanted to be like Gaga, though undoubtedly she is a Top Bird; I’m a fan without being a wannabe. What I liked especially about Sam’s feedback was that she appreciated me for precisely the things which I already know and love about myself, thus reinforcing them. And […]
