What business support do you need?

What business support do you need?

I have been so fortunate in the past few weeks to speak to over 30 Corporate Crossovers. These women have taken their valuable time and shared their story with me. I have heard all about their transition from corporate employee to business owner. Why they left and how it has been for them since. This is all for my new book coming out soon! The key theme that keeps on coming through from them, and the 300 Corporate Crossovers I surveyed earlier this year is the need for support. Support for them as they go through that transition from being a corporate employee in that framework to launching out on their own. Support as they grapple with the multitude of things that need to happen to get the business from concept to reality. Support as they learn to sell themselves, their ideas to new markets. And as they learn to value themselves and their time and put a price on it. And business support as they realize that maybe the actual performance of their business is different from their business plan. And support when it gets tough, when they’re tired from the long hours, feeling fragile from rejection and yet still persevere because they are so passionate about their idea and determined to make it a success. If these statements resonate with you – where are you getting your support from? The women I have spoken to find support from: partners and family close friends other business owners mentors coaches some networking groups (not all…so check carefully) b0oks and courses As we are all so individual, I urge you to...
Where is your heart in your business?

Where is your heart in your business?

You know the cliche ‘people buy from people’. That is true and I believe it. Yet how often do we see marketing messages that have no heart in them? And if you are really honest, do you sometimes put out messages that are a little razzamatazz,  with all the right words but lacking in spirit, emotion and impact? Next time you need to write a blog post, a marketing message or an email campaign – try writing it from your heart. I recently started doing this, moving form my head (based on an 18 year marketing career) to my heart. I know it’s made a difference. My messages are more aligned with me and my purpose and I know I am touching more of my audience in a genuine way. If you are wondering how to do it….try this. As you sit to write, take a moment to breathe deeply, get centered. Imagine you can see a member of your audience in your mind’s eye. Connect with them and imagine what is troubling them, what are they needing to know right now. And write from that place….and see what happens! I would love to know how you get on with this approach – please comment below…  ...
From your head or your heart?

From your head or your heart?

Tom Jones. I have to admit I am a big Tom Jones fan. I saw in 15 years ago in Las Vegas, two rows from the front – I was in heaven! Except when the security guards threatened to throw me out for dancing…but that’s another story, on another blog….. Last night I saw him again in London. Massive venue and I was 100 metres from the front up in the gallery. Yet, last night’s show touched me much more. Pondering this reaction today I realised it was because last night Tom performed from his heart. He was vulnerable, he shared his mistakes and concerns with us in the audience. He interacted, he showed us he was a human. Whereas in Vegas he came on, performed and left. Don’t get me wrong, it was still an amazing experience but he was going through the motions – albeit at an incredible level! It made me think about my work and my interactions with people. When I come from my heart and am truly present and in the moment, great stuff happens. But when I am just going through the motions, I always feel there is a bit missing. Tell me – do you let your heart open up and be authentic, or have you been going through the motions recently?    ...
