We’ve officially hit Episode 100! Today, I'm going to be talking to you about the changes that have happened in the last hundred episodes since I recorded my first podcast way back in 2017. I had a lot of ideas for what to do for the 100th episode, but I settled on running you through the evolution and the changes since I began, and sharing some wisdom that I’ve accumulated over the years.
So the previous 10years of my life were super stable. I continued on a very linear and predictable path that seemed to make sense. I started suburban tutoring centres that then went into licensing that then went into franchising, but after a decade of running the same race I decided to sell my company and start something new - podcasting! I started my first podcast as ‘The Female Advantage’, and in that I was interviewing women that had achieved some really cool stuff in their life. It had no point, no sales funnel and it was nothing other than just sharing inspiring...
It's not the big things that make the difference, it's what we do consistently over time. The accumulative results are always going to overtake the bursts.
On the back of mothers day and my Grandma's 93rd birthday, I'm talking about the benefits of women led companies and letting go of social norms and conformity to design your own version of life and dream big and go after it.
The only way you get to do things you've never done before, is to just do the things you've never done before. In today's session, I'm talking about the importance of backing yourself and going for your biggest dream, even when you don't know the 'how'.
The email inbox is one of our most utilised tools, but it can take up soooo much time, make us reactive and hijack our day so easily. Today I'm sharing some simple tools and tips for inbox domination to claim back your productivity.
1. Purposeful checking
Have certain times of the day when you check your inbox. I like 10am and 4pm to catch everything. Carve out the time you need to dive in and answer everything thoroughly. It's when we're checking on the fly that things get missed and they take up too much brain space.
Only touch once! When you check your inbox, do one of 4 things:
2. Turn off notifications
On your computer if you have them flying in over your screen, turn it off. It's distracting you and stealing precious productivity. If you...
I was talking with a few people this week about getting more visible on video in socials.
Until you get in the habit, it's great to have a bank of ideas that you can pop one on each day and know what you're going to do. I challenge you to do a video on your instagram stories and a facebook live every day for a week and see what happens! :) I bet you'll love the results.
Some video ideas:
Lindsay is the MD and co-founder of Chello, an agency that applies creativity to communication problems; connecting brands and people back to what matters most.
At the age of 25, Lindsay Rogers left a dream career – to build the company she couldn’t have dreamed of. It was 2014, a time where advertising agencies were staking their claim on digital content, and digital agencies were extending their offerings to campaigns. So it was the perfect time to start Chello; an agency that wheels and deals in all kinds of content. Chello offers small and large organisations – from corporates to small non-profits.
Chello started as two co-founders. In its first year, it turned over a million dollars and reached over 45 clients – including an international airline. Since then the company has grown to over 20 people and more than 180 clients.
In between, Lindsay has won Telstra Young Business Woman of the Year for NSW, 2015, and has been accepted to the...
The whole time I was interviewing Sara I was nodding along. I find that once you’ve gone through a massive life shift and had to change your way of life, it really does shift your perspective. It also gives you an affinity with other people who have also crossed over so to speak into that space in life. That space where you need to look closely within and ask yourself if the life you’re living is really the one that is going to optimise your potential and your happiness.
Sara owns SRA Corporate Change whose purpose is to unlock the potential of organisations and their leaders to cultivate high performance. They work with leading organisations in their core business areas of strategy, leadership, and culture.
Sara’s personal and professional experiences have refined her approach to the many facets of people development. These experiences ensure clients receive genuine results relevant to the way in which we live and work today.
