A few words on procrastination

Screen Shot 2017-11-30 at 22.09.20.png

Procrastination is such a biggy for so many of us isn't it? It's something that comes up time and time again for creative entrepreneurs as THE thing that most gets in the way of achieving potential. 

So I thought I'd share a few thoughts on this beast in a very short less than 8 minute audio that might just open up your thinking a little and start to get some momentum going for you if you're prone to this pesky habit. I hope you find it helpful. 

 

I mention a few resources in the audio and if you want to know more about them you can find some links here:

Enjoy!

Why working for the money doesn't make sense in business

Why working for the money doesn't make sense in business

As an entrepreneur you didn't create your business just to make money. Stay with me here. Let's face it if it was just about the money, you wouldn't have chosen to work for yourself, there are much easier more straightforward ways of earning hard cash.

It was my great pleasure to edit Brand Brilliance the best selling second book by Fiona Humberstone. Just after Brand Brilliance came out we recorded this interview about her publishing journey and a lot more besides. 

We talk about what it was like for Fiona to write and publish Brand Brilliance. Why it's so important for her to be working at the edge of her comfort zone and why she never plans more than six months ahead.

We dip into her tools for inspiration and how she structures her business so that all the elements feed into each other.

Fi shares her criteria for which clients she works with and how she discerns those projects and people that are the right fit, what blocks her creative flow and how she's learning to deal with that.

She also shares her view on what gets in the way of people creating their own ideal business, why authenticity matters and what helps her focus in the mere 16 hours a week she has to run her highly successful business.

Please enjoy my conversation with the absolutely delightful Fiona Humberstone.
