How to be cruel to be kind

How to be cruel to be kind

“There aren’t enough hours in the day” If I had an ounce of gold (shoring myself against the currency….) every time I heard this statement from my clients, I would have enough gold to underwrite a small nation. It’s time to be cruel to be kind. By catering to everyone elses’ timetables, whims and needs ahead of yours means that you lose. YOU LOSE! Your business loses. If you want to feel more in control of your time, your energy and have your business flourish you need to start pushing back, set boundaries and put yourself first! This may seem a little harsh in it’s tone but if you aren’t passionate and determined about setting boundaries for yourself so you do the work on your business, you will fail. Step up now and make changes to how you manage your time. Treat yourself as your most important customer and make those appointments with yourself to do the work sacrosanct. Let me know your thoughts and tell me how you are pushing back!...

Missing your paid holidays?

Missing your paid holidays?

At this of year in the Northern Hemisphere, our thoughts turn to the long stretch of summer ahead of us. For those of us in the UK, we are all probably aching to go somewhere sunny and rain free for a long, long time! (for those of you not in the UK, we have seen a whole lot of rain…..) Yet, here is often where having our own businesses can be the double edge sword. We have all the flexibility we want, as it is our business, and yet for many of us, unless we are working we don’t get paid. And this is when we can reminisce fondly of our time as an employee……. So what to do? Well, you could always go and get a job but I know that’s not an option as you love the freedom ad flexibility of your own business. So try this planning and calculation instead..I call it the My Holiday Time Breathe Easy Calculation! Step 1: As you plan your year in broad strokes, plan those weeks you will take out as holiday. Then calculate the number of working weeks you have left. Step 2: The divide your ideal annual income by those remaining working weeks. This number will then become the income you need to achieve for those weeks you are working. Doing this calculation and achieving this target will mean that you are paying yourself while you are on holiday! Of course, it may mean you need to step up and grow your business by 20% but won’t that peace of mind be worth it? If you need help...
Magic – How to create more time!

Magic – How to create more time!

There is a way to create more time…yes really! Take a look at your average week or month in your calendar……go on, do it now! Does your schedule look a bit spotty …..are there appointments and meetings dotted around your days and months. Do you have small segments of time in between meetings that are not quite long enough to get any work done? Try this for a bold time creation step! Group all of your meetings into the smallest number of days possible. Imagine if you had all of your networking meetings on the one day (I do mine on Friday as everyone is way more relaxed!) and then your sales calls on a Tuesday and client work on a Wednesday. What difference would it make to your time if you knew that each week you had TWO full days with NO meetings, and could actually sit and get the work done you know you need to to grow your business. Try it out – try it for a week and see how much more time you have created. I would love to know how you get on....
