Let's Talk about Confidence

Here's four tips about Confidence:

Every single person out there is not born with confidence. Confidence is something that you develop over time. It is something that grows with time. 

Picture an athlete. When they first start running, do you think they have the strength and the stamina to run long distances? What about a weight trainer? Do you think that they start out being able to lift 100 kilos? They start on the lower side and do a little bit at a time and they build that muscle. 

Confidence is exactly the same. Confidence is something that you will only build if you practice.

Tip number one, to build your Confidence:


Practice, and get out there and practice, practice, practice.

Let's talk about things you are going to practice.

Tip number two, get your ask into gear:

Now hearing that word ask can be super super scary for lots of people. Walking up to somebody and asking. So often my mum will come over she wants to know something...

Smart Goals

Smart Goals

"I want to improve" that's a very broad statement, not very smart goals. It's like saying I want more money. 

Let's talk about smart goals, I set SMART goals all the time. So whether it's for a personal reason, or for a professional reason, it is so important to set smart goals.

Do you know what a SMART goal is?

Is that goal hard to reach? It's not usually a lack of effort, it has more to do with a lack of structure. Structure on how you actually set those goals. When you're setting your goals, think about the acronym smart. 

A SMART goal is specific thing, it is measurable, it is attainable, and actionable. It is realistic, and it is also time bound. Alright, so I'll go into each of these little letters and what they need. Let's think about actually thinking about setting a goal.  These letters will make your goal more achievable, rather than broad statements. So for example,

"I want to lose weight."

"I want to get more healthy."

"Oh, I want to lose,...

Mistakes are your friends

Mistakes are your friends

I thought I would share a thought for thoughtful Thursday.

Today we talk about strategies you can use to turn mistakes into life lessons that's going to help in future.

Number One

This can be uncomfortable and hard to do. If you make a mistake it's important to acknowledge the error in your ways.

Quite often, what we can tend to do is we can downplay the mistakes, because it's so much more comfortable. If you're in a leadership role, you may say things like

"I'm so sorry, that you feel that way," or you may say,

"It's unfortunate that this has happened."

What you're doing is you're minimising your responsibility. It is much easier to minimise your responsibility in the mistake that has happened.

Before we can learn to turn our mistakes into a lesson, we need to stand up. We need to acknowledge the error that we may have made by saying something like,

"you know what I messed up,' or "I could have done better."

By doing that. you are allowing change to...

Knowing Your Why

Knowing Your Why

What's your Why have you defined your WHY?

But what does it mean?


As an entrepreneur, you need to know what your why is. It's a hard journey, to go into business for yourself.  To make the decisions to try and take your life and your personal self forward. It can at times feel lonely, when nobody kind of gets it and understands what it is that you're doing.

It goes beyond selling your product or your service, your why should be so much more than any of that. Because you it need to have some sort of purpose to why it is that you choose to do what it is that you do. Why did you choose to sell or have that particular product and service that you have chosen to do?  I know it goes beyond the product. It goes way beyond making some money.

There has to be something much deeper. There has to be something much more that drives you and pushes you through those hard times.

This is what will define a successful entrepreneur over a shiny ball chaser. Somebody...

The Path of a new Coach, Consultant, Healer, or Course Creator

The Path of a New Coach, Consultant, Healer, or Course Creator

Today we're talking about the path of a new coach, consultant, healer or course creator.  What the steps are and the best way to go about that so that you have the fastest path to profit.

Step One

You need to confirm what it is that you want to offer to make sure people are actually interested in it.  I recommend when you're first starting out, you should be doing one on ones doing and helping people, one on one. That way you are speaking to your ideal audience. You get to hear their pain points, you get to find out their struggles.


Delve deep and figure out what it is that you can do to help them by hearing from the horse's mouth. What it is they're looking for help from you.

The more one on ones that you do, then the more you're going to get to know the people that you are trying to serve, and help. Once you have so many one on ones booked and you have a waiting list you may struggle to keep on top...
