Ok, I’m going to admit something that kind of makes me look like a slacker and a failure… over the past couple of years I have bought and/or downloaded THIRTEEN digital marketing systems and strategies.

I did the work – I’m a vigilant box-ticker – I filled in all my worksheets, made my plans, set my calendar reminders and then… nothing. I did not implement a blessed thing.

When it comes to marketing your small business, nothing ever seems simple. There are so many options – so many platforms, so many tools, so many tactics to try out… I mean, how are we supposed to know where to focus in order to get the results, if we don’t have an entire lifetime to devote to this stuff?

It’s so common for things to die down over the summer, but that can feel like the kiss of death as a business owner. In this episode, I’m sharing all about how I’m planning to step it up over the next couple of months. More visibility, more money and even more downtime. Yes, really.

The scannable version:

This week I’ve been reviewing the progress I’ve made in my business over the past few months,

This week I’m chatting with accidental business coach and host of the Meaningful Business podcast, Jo Casey. It’s a good one.

Listen here:

The key takeaways:

💛 We all need to look at how we can create businesses that sustainable financially, emotionally and energetically. The rates of burnout amongst solopreneurs and entrepreneurs are really big,

This episode was an interesting one for me to record as it was one I was kind of dreading (if we’re going to be honest about things). You see, for me, LinkedIn just reminded me of the corporate career I left behind me. It reminded me of a world filled with rule followers, a world filled with politics, a world filled with bullshit if we’re going to go back to that whole honesty thing.

HOWEVER,

I feel like this week has flashed by in a haze of coffee fumes and endless (literally, ENDLESS) emails panicking about impending GDPR doom.

Saying that it might be time for us all to chill and take a breath away from our computer screens would be a colossal understatement…

But before you unplug (and pour the wine), here’s this week’s stash of brainboosters.

Never (ever) violate Girl Code

Last weekend I sat in my lovely,

One of my very favourite things to do (in both business and life) is to keep learning, keep growing, keep developing.

Learning new lessons and implementing new tactics is almost a hobby of mine. It keeps things fun and fresh. Sometimes these new ideas might flop, but sometimes they FLY. That’s just part of the entrepreneurial rollercoaster.

I’m hitting you with something a little bit different today…

If you’re a regular listener of Your Biz, Your Rules you’ll probably be used to my interviews with insanely inspiring entrepreneurial types… today you get NONE of that. I’m bringing back the solo episodes, so for today, the flim-flam is mine alone!

In this one, I’m sharing the three big (yet simple) things I’m done to boost my business results over the past year.

One of my very, very favourite things about running my own business is that my future is in my hands.

That means that what I do, what I learn and what I become is all down to me.

For anyone who started out in the corporate world, I’m sure you can remember the days where you had to jump through all kinds of flaming hoops to develop in any way.

Isn’t it crazy how much difference a year makes?

I don’t know about you, but to me, it feels like one year in business is like three in any other situation (given how much progress we make, how many ideas we’re flooded with and how many important lessons we learn).

I’ve also noticed that things seem to come in waves; these lessons we come across raise their heads again and again,
