This week’s Thursday Thought:

Successful Women Can Still Have Their Feet On The Ground, They Just Wear Better Shoes

The Feminine Way to Business Success – The Complete Collection!

As you know, recently I took part in the 30 day YouTube business challenge, where I recorded 30 (…well actually it ended up as 32!) videos showcasing hints and tips on “The Feminine Way to Business Success”.

Since the challenge ended I’ve had lots of people contact me to say that they loved the videos, but they missed one or two of them along the way, and is there somewhere that they can find all of them in the one place?

So…here we are! I’ve created a playlist with all 32 videos on “The Feminine Way to Business Success” for you to catch up and skip through in order to find any you might have missed, or that you might find particularly useful 🙂

So, which has been YOUR favourite video from the YouTube Challenge?

Also, tonight will be my first live online radio interview on “The Waking Passions” radio show, where I’ll be sharing about “Clearing your masks and finding the true feminine you”

Inspiring, being inspired and changing lives…

Wow.

As you know, on Saturday I was hosting and speaking at the All Woman Workshop here in London.

Although I knew it was going to be a fantastic event, I had no idea how many major life transformations were going to take place there!

It was a phenomenal day.

We had the lovely Alex-Santoro Emmerson who shared her amazing insights into creating more love and passion in your life. Alex’s talk resonated with so many women…in fact one attendee shared that “I’ve been lying to myself for the last two years. It’s not that I don’t want a relationship…it’s that I want a GREAT relationship!”

 

The fabulous Jennifer Gresham showed the path for taking your passion to a paycheck. Jennifer guided everyone through a brilliant 6-step process for understanding how you can create a career from something you love…and her inspiring story about her own journey touched everyone in the room.

 

The incredible Lisa Steadman was a firecracker of energy and inspiration, sharing her “Woo hoo within” and helping everyone there understand how important it is to connect with “The Woo hoo that you do”. Her talk helped everyone in the room to understand that branding is not just for business…and being able to understand the unique gift you have to share with the world is where the magic begins…

What was so amazing was that during the day I heard so many people saying “I didn’t expect to get anything out of that talk…so I was really surprised when I did!” or “All of the speakers are amazing…I’ve got value from each and every one of them”.

The energy in the room was electric, we raised money for the fabulous charity “Breakthrough Breast Cancer”…and when some of the ladies shared the stories of their breakthroughs and the incredible transformation they had gone through during the day, there was barely a dry-eye in the house.

I wanted to share one of the inspiring success stories of the day with you today…

When I first started selling tickets to the event, a contact of mine who lives in the US said that because she loved the idea of the event, and wanted to support the charity, she wanted to buy a ticket for me to give to a woman who really needed it.

I put the word out to various contacts asking if they knew someone who was in need of an event like this and a friend of mine connected me with a woman who has had a very challenging personal experience, and was really in need of some inspiration.

Well, to say the stars aligned to bring a particular lady to the event is an understatement. So many co-incidences and chance happenings along the way indicated that she was the person who needed the ticket.

Her story is incredible, but what is even better is the message she shared with the whole group at the end of the All Woman Workshop about the breakthrough she had there.

Not only is it going to transform her life, but ALSO the lives of many other people.

This lady literally has the ability to save lives, and thanks to the generosity of a stranger, a lovely lady who paid it forward, I believe that’s exactly what she’s going to go on to do.

This is just one of many stories which have been shared with me about the amazing transformations that the ladies at the event experienced…and I hope that at the next one we can add your story to the collection!

So if you were at the event on Saturday…a big thank you. Thanks for giving your time, your energy, your support and for helping to make the event an amazing success. …and if you weren’t then maybe I’ll see you at the next one in September! ☺

Stay Fabulous,

The Feminine Way to Business Success – Emotions in Business – Day 30 of the Youtube Challenge

Day 30 of the Youtube challenge!

Over the last few years women have got the message that emotions and business don’t mix. We’ve been told to ‘check our emotions at the door’ and ‘don’t get emotional’.

The Feminine Way to Business Success – Balance of Giving & Receiving – Day 27 of the Youtube Challenge

Day 27 of the Youtube challenge!

In the past business has had a bit of a reputation for being focused on what it can get…out of situations, out of resources, out of people. It has been so focused on the bottom line, on results and numbers and what it can get, that it sometimes forgets about how important it is to give first. Watch the video to find out more:

So, in the past have you been a little too focused on what you can get in business? What difference do you think that focusing on giving value first would make to the success of your business?

I’d love to know what you are going to do differently to help get the balance of giving and receiving in your business right for you, so leave me a comment below, drop me a message on Facebook or tweet me “@Feminine1st”.

The Feminine Way to Business Success – The Brand of You – Day 25 of the Youtube Challenge

Day 25 of the Youtube challenge!

When working in business people sometime have a habit of focusing on their business brand, and they forget that they have a personal brand themselves. Your personal brand is so important as it is what everyone you meet and interact with will judge you on. Having a personal brand which is completely congruent, inside and out will make a huge difference to the success of your business. Watch the video to find out why:

So, do you know what your personal brand is? What difference do you think that developing the brand of ‘you’ would make to the success of your business?

I’d love to know what you are going to do to define your brand values and make sure your brand is true to the authentic ‘you’ inside, so leave me a comment below, drop me a message on Facebook or tweet me “@Feminine1st”.
