If you’re a purpose-driven entrepreneur you know running your own business is about alot more than the numbers – with the highs and lows that come with business it’s the biggest personal development workshop you’ll ever experience. So my question is what’s your relationship with your business? Do you have a business plan? Do you love it or are you feeling a little out of control or maybe even stale? Are you achieving what you set out to achieve personally, financially and for your audience? Or are you feeling grumpy, frustrated or dissatisfied with your ‘other half’?
Are you as successful as you want to be in your business? For many, the answer is yes, I have some success, but more would be great. That’s because there’s probably more people you’d like to help, more customers you’d like to bring on board and more you’d like to achieve. Because when you’re helping more people it means you’ll be making the difference you want to make in the world.
So the question is why? Why aren’t you more successful – when you are so focused on achieving the next level of success in your business and your life? Why are you still not getting to where you want to go? (more…)

Thoughts like … “will people still love/like me if I’m successful?” … “Successful women can’t find balance elsewhere in their lives” … “A successful business or career means my family loses….” So what does this mean for us?
Every week I have the absolute pleasure, and honour, of visiting my parents in their retirement village on Australia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. The time I get to spend with my parents is precious within itself, but then the opportunity to meet with other all the souls in this community is an extra bonus.
When I look into their beautiful faces and see the years of experience and the lines of wisdom on their faces, I’m honoured to be in their presence. I also wonder have they told their story? Have they lived the life that they want to live? Have they lived their dreams? (more…)
The idea of selling is something that leaves many people feeling cold – but if we want to get more customers we need to be able to do it in a way that feels right for us. We need to say no! to those “icky” feelings of awkwardness that come up around the word selling. So how do we do it? How can we sell authentically … in a way that feels aligned with who we are as heart-centred entrepreneurs who want to get out there and make a big change in the world?
