Dazed and Confused? Move to Clarity and Confidence

http://www.corporatecrossovers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Feb-Masterclass-10-Traps-to-Avoid-1.mp3 Does dazed and confused describe how you are feeling about your business? Do you feel as if there isn’t enough time in the day? On this action packed, practical call you will discover: Why doing it all yourself is false economy A simple and effective tool to prioritise your activities How to recognise the tasks (and people) that are time wasters Four essential ways to start thinking about your business for immediate change When you leave your job and cross over to start your own business, it can be a journey of twists and turns.  At times you will feel exhilarated, excited and eagerly anticipating each day as it presents you with new opportunities and experiences. You will relish the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss. You will love doing the work that matches your values and is meaningful to you. Sadly, it is not always like this. At other times you may feel as if you are taking two steps forward and three steps back. The business will test your resolve, your resilience and your self-belief. You may feel lonely, and as if no-one really understands what you are going through. You may also feel stuck with no-one to turn to, especially if they questioned your decision to leave your corporate job. Wanting to avoid the “I told you so”, you resist reaching out for help, and risk feeling worse about your situation. From the interviews I recently conducted for my book, starting out as new Corporate Crossovers®, many of the women I spoke with had little support. Often they felt too proud to ask...

Getting Ready for 2013

Getting Ready for 2013

http://www.corporatecrossovers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/MMC-Oct-2012-Getting-ready-for-2013.mp3 So lets get started, today we will be discussing, getting you ready for 2013. We will look at three areas: review how 2012 has been for you and your business create goals for 2013 develop a springboard for your success As we move towards the end of the year, we have a fantastic opportunity to take stock and to plan a brighter year for our business. I am recommending to all of my clients that they start their annual reviews now, and then they have a strong foundation upon which to build their 2013 plans. If you don’t have a set of financial targets for your business (revenue and profit) then frankly, you have an expensive hobby. That may be tough to hear but it’s time to embrace what you have created and step up! From research we conducted earlier this year of 300 women business owners, 68% of them are earning less now than when they had a job. I think this is such a shame. We deserve to have thriving businesses and to enjoy the benefits that brings, both financial and the feeling of doing work we love and find rewarding. Chances are you fall into the 68%. And from the research, the majority of the women were unhappy with their earnings. Is this you? OH!!! Was that you yawning at the thought of doing a business review and plan??? Believe me, it doesn’t have to be dull! It’s essential for the business and it can be done in a way that is energetic, developmental and inspiring. Because we all need a plan that inspires us!...

How Many Hats do you Wear as a Business Owner?

How Many Hats do you Wear as a Business Owner?

http://www.corporatecrossovers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/June-21012-how-many-hats.mp3 This month we will be discussing “How Many Hats Can One Woman Wear?” When we start our own businesses it can be startling how many different roles we have to play in a week or even in one day! We have left the comforts of the support framework our old jobs gave us and now we have to do it all ourselves….. From my experience in working with Corporate Crossovers® this can be exhausting, overwhelming and frustrating as they seem to spend more time on the stuff to keep the business ticking over as opposed to the work that they wanted to do when they first started the business. If you feel like you are wearing too many hats….book keeper, tax accountant, personal assistant, IT help desk, office manager, sales department etc etc then this call is for you! On this call you will discover: • How to feel more in control of the many hats you are wearing • A simple way to structure the work that needs to be done • How to feed your spirit, so you get to love what you do again! In your job, when you are wearing many hats, you deal with whatever comes up, whether you have expertise in it or not and you just put up with it.  So you end up spending your precious time in areas that you know little about or have no natural aptitude for. Yet because it’s your own business, you do it anyway. You suffer because you dislike doing some of that ‘stuff’ and frankly your business suffers because you aren’t driving value...
You Need a Success Makeover

You Need a Success Makeover

http://www.corporatecrossovers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/May-MMC-Wendy-Kerr-Corporate-Crossovers-Success.mp3 This month we will be discussing “Success – You Need A Makeover!” When we leave corporate work to set up our own business we have to redefine many things. How we work, our employment status, our title and many other elements. From my experience in working with Corporate Crossovers® , they very rarely update their criteria of success. This can leave them feeling unsuccessful and yearning for a different time, even yearning to go back to their jobs! This can also lead to apathy about their business and lowering self esteem. If you haven’t updated your success criteria – tonight you will get a success makeover! On this call you will discover: What does success mean anyway? How you used to value your success A quick way to make over and update your success criteria NOW! Three top tools to keep success alive and well – everyday! In the last decade I have worked with many women who have left their jobs in the corporate world to set up their own businesses. I call these women Corporate Crossovers. Leaving the world of work behind can be extremely exhilarating and it can also be massively challenging – sometimes on the same day, or even the same hour! These women will seek my assistance when they are fed up with their business and they don’t feel like they are succeeding. They are often at the point when they feel like they should get real and get a job and start making decent money again. They don’t feel like they are succeeding. The Oxford English dictionary defines success as ‘ the...
