Episode 46 – Your Business, Your Rules – The Book. The What, Why, How & Some Behind The Scenes.

First the what. What?! There’s a Your Business, Your Rules book?!

Yes, there is! If you receive emails from me you’ll know about this and may even be bored with hearing about it.

If you are hearing about this in the podcast you may not have known because I think I may have only mentioned it once briefly.

The Your Business, Your Rules book is designed to be a guide to starting a business, but it’s very different from any other business book I know of.

The way that it’s different is two-fold.

The first reason it’s different is that it starts at a much higher level than other business books.

We start by understanding the business landscape so you can choose the right type of business.

Then look at choosing the right business idea for you.

Episode 43 – Managing Your Energy Instead Of Your Time To Get More Done Or Why I Don’t Believe In Time Management

Have you ever imagined how freeing it would be to work for yourself or work from home or are you enjoying doing that right now?

While it’s true that not having someone else looking over your shoulder at work can be a huge relief, running your own business is a lot of hard work.

You need dedication, responsibility, and incredible self-management skills. And working from home presents its own set of challenges, like not surfing YouTube or deciding to go shopping when you’re feeling stuck. Although it’s totally okay to do this sometimes, just not all the time!
