Episode 52 – What To Do When You Are Afraid To Promote Yourself
I see this a lot with the business owners I work with: they have a great idea that they are passionate about, but when it comes to promoting it – or even talking about it – they suddenly clam up and feel as shy as the new kid on the first day of school.
Or maybe they’re OK promoting their business, but they don’t want to be the face of it. No photos on their website, no personality behind their brand – and definitely no speaking engagements or other promotional opportunities!
If this sounds like you, don’t worry! That was me too when I started and it is still me to a certain extent.
Here are some ways of approaching promotion that I’ve discovered to boost your confidence and help you reframe why you are doing this in the first place.
Episode 47 – Letting Go To Move Forward – How To Believe In Yourself
Mindset is a massive piece of success. We all know this even if we may resist it to a certain extent. I certainly did in the beginning.
I talked in Episode 33 Why You Must Surround Yourself With Successful People about how our environment affects our beliefs, which affects our decisions, which affect our results.
But how do we learn to believe in ourselves regardless of our environment or the people around us?
Episode 42 – The Real Reasons Why You Are Stuck Choosing Your Business Idea
Everybody goes through a process when they are choosing a business idea. They do research, go over options, narrow the choices down and make a decision.
This is not what I’m talking about, what I’m talking about is if you’ve been stuck on this for a long time unable to make a decision, meaning months if not longer.
Episode 25 – How Much Do Successful Entrepreneurs Actually Work?
I love these episodes where we go behind the scenes and look at – what does really go on? What exactly does it look like, what are people actually doing?
I find this quite fascinating actually because I want to know as well as wanting to share it with you.

In this episode of Your Business Your Rules I invite Camille Thurnherr, my accountability buddy and Founder of PrioritiseLove.com, in for a chat to give an behind the scenes peek on what it’s like to have your own business.

Does your entrepreneurial journey feel like a bit of a roller coaster?
It probably comes as no surprise that starting a business is rewarding, but it also involves a lot of hard work and effort. (It really is a marathon, not a sprint.)
You have to be in it for the long haul – which is why you need both mindset and strategy.
