Blogfest 7: Clara Wilcox and Her Biz Her Way

Today it is Clara Wilcox who is blogger #7 in the Your Biz Your Way Blogfest 2018. Clara is a new friend I’ve made during this process. How cool is that? Here she is in her own words: Let’s be clear. Confidence is something that grows. You aren’t born with it. It comes from attempting new things and seeing what happens. Developing your self-belief and repeating what works, and learning from what doesn’t. How did I know I was confident enough to run a business, my way? When I decided to start The Balance Collective, it wasn’t because I had high levels […]

Blogfest 6: Gillian Lancaster and Her Biz Her Way

Thank you to blogger #6, Gillian Lancaster, who writes about why she finds having multiple businesses so seductive. My response to this question and several others which Gillian kindly submitted for Your Biz Your Way is published in that book. Although you know I like having lots of creative choices, you might also wonder why I’m writing a post called ‘Why is having multiple businesses so seductive?’. It is time for me to admit to you that in addition to all that goes on on this site, I also have a web and graphic design business and an Etsy shop, so from time to time I wonder […]

Blogfest 5: Nicola Semple and Her Biz Her Way

The first of two blogfest entries published today comes from Nicola Semple; read on as she writes about Her Biz Her Way: I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy of Judith Morgan’s book Your Biz Your Way and what an absolute treat it is. It felt quite naughty and delicious to get an early preview before it was unleashed in all of it’s glory on Amazon. Sad but true. Perhaps I need to get out more often. It is a truly awesome book and a must read for anybody who already has or is planning […]

I’ve known Paula Gardner to wear many different hats, not all of those she describes in her post below but quite a lot of them.

Blogfest 3: Nicola Cairncross and Her Biz Her Way

Today’s Blogfest contribution, the third in what I hope will be a series of 52, comes from Nicola Cairncross who’s writing about Her Biz Her Way. I’m very lucky to have decided over 22 years ago, to run “my business my way”.  And its largely been a roaring success! To celebrate the publication of her new book Your Biz Your Way with Judith Morgan, business coach and co-host with me of Own It! The Podcast, I’m going to tell you the story of how I did that. Back in 1998 I was still bouncing from one career to another, unable […]

Blogfest 2: Richard Pettitt and His Biz His Way

Today I am happy to be publishing the second contribution to my 2018 Blogfest. It comes from Richard Pettitt who writes about His Biz His Way. My business is Richard Pettitt Art. I started the business in September 2014 with the intention of selling pet portraits, mainly of dogs. I knew there was a market for them because friends (and friends of friends, and colleagues) had seen my drawings of dogs on Facebook, and then asked me to draw their dogs. “How much?” they asked. How much? I’ve no idea! But being paid to draw is good, right? So work it out.So I […]
