Making friends with Imposter Syndrome (part two) | Digital Mums

I am thrilled to be collaborating with Digital Mums once again and discussing the topic of Imposter Syndrome and how we can work with it and not against it. I will be going live from Digital Mums HQ with Jo Dale.

The event is free, all you need to do is to join their Facebook group: 'Empowering Women with Work that works'

Imposter syndrome - how to get it out of your way and take your career to the next level!

Braving your comfort zone is so subjective. Beyonce can quite happily ace a sell out world tour, however for you, maybe the thought of going on Instagram live and selling what you do can bring out all kinds of fear. 'Who am I to do this?' 'Am I ready?' 'I don't feel comfortable talking about myself especially so early on in this business'

Expert business coach for women Nicky Raby will be talking about her journey to building a personal brand/business that aligns with her personality and skill set and her top 5 strategies for dealing with imposter syndrome.

HOW TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE MORE AKA INCREASE VISIBILITY (EVEN WHEN IT ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIES YOU!)

Register here

Public speaking or putting yourself/your brand can be so scary. I know because I do it on a daily basis. I still get scared and I'm a trained actor! I spent three years learning how not to be scared but yet it is something I need to consistently overcome. 

I know that increasing your visibility is key to your business/brand - especially if you haven't got a huge marketing budget.

Don't worry I am not going to give you a blue print to follow but I am going to help you identify a way to do things your way. We are going to zoom out to the 'big plan' and then figure out how you can break that down into small steps. Don't worry if you can join us live...you can catch up on the replay

Share your expertise (without being in the room)

Sign up here

Are you like me and often feel a little time squeezed?

Perhaps you only have limited time to work (which may not be on the 9-5pm schedule) but need to still earn a healthy income.

Or maybe you are at capacity and want to scale your business without working more hours or suddenly charge a million pounds for your sessions.

I found the power of passive income in labour. Yes that's right. I had written my book in 2014 but in October 2015 when huffing and puffing I sold two books...that paid for my taxi to go to the hospital. No extra work or customer service was required from me (fortunately) the systems were in place and everything could run without me.

Perhaps your ideal clients can't afford to work with you hour upon hour...but don't worry that's ok. You can create huge value for them to  action in their own time.

In this webinar we will talk about: 

- The advantages of creating products/courses online

- How to know decide on a topic

- How to price it

- Technology that will be useful

- How to create it in a way that feels good to you

Map out of April (and beyond)...

Are you feeling a bit lost and confused?

Is your business/brand feeling a bit muddled and you are not really sure what to focus on?

Have you been working really hard recently but not reaping the rewards you would like?

Don't worry, I know that feeling.

I will help you to map out the month ahead and you don't even have to move from your sofa.

I never share 'how to build a business in 5 easy steps' but I will be sharing a framework to help you make a plan of action that is right for you.

You probably have lots going on and many hats to wear so this workshop will help you to break things down, figure out where you want to focus and how you can implement with your circumstances. There will also be a replay available so no worries if you can't join live.

Increase your income (without being in the room)

Book here

(Early bird price ends Friday 16th March. Price increases to £125)

Yes, it is true. Not that I was thinking about how I was going to get home...I was you know, breathing and trying not to lose my mind with the pain (the labour was three days long)

I used to think that passive income was something other people could create... you know networker marketers or some sleazy dude in a nylon suit on the internet.

Turns out I was wrong.

Since 2014, I have made consistent income from selling books, audios and courses. This works perfectly for me. I have a two year old so want to not work all the time. I want to live a life on my terms leaving room for creativity, adventures and not just cash my time in for money.

You can do the same. If you are a personal brand or business, there will be a way you can create passive income too. You can serve your audience/customers without being in the room. Of course you can still create the 1:1 work (or not) but I am talking about sharing what you are great...even whilst you are sleeping. 

During this workshop, I will help you figure how you can do this.

How to package your services / how to sell / the technology you need / what to charge / systems and marketing.

The workshop is at Century.

10:30am-1:30pm

You get free access to my Passive Income course (£49.00)

Refreshments included.

All sales are final (you are welcome to reschedule up to 24 hours before)

Build your plan of action

I used to be someone who used to dream big...but only in my head. I used to day dream; muse and consider what I wanted to do with my life. But for the most part, didn't take enough action. Now I plan, I get clear on my outcomes and I dream big...but I make a plan to make it happen.

If you are a business owner/freelancer/personal brand this is for you.

For the most part you may be doing everything in your business and that can quickly spiral into feeling overwhelmed and anxious...

So here's what is included in the workshop:

  • A three hour workshop (limited to only 4 people) to help you build a plan of action for the year ahead. (10:30am-1:30pm)

  • Exercises that will help you reflect the year of 2017 so you can build and expand going forward. 

  • Streamline your work life so you earn more and spend more time doing what you love. 

  • Devise a plan of action that is aligned to your life and circumstances. (There is no such thing as 'one size fits all' success.

  • An opportunity to gain feedback/ideas on your plans...(my workshops always attract supportive, encouraging women)

  • A beautiful setting; we will be at Century Members' Club in Soho (no kids/babies I'm afraid) - the perfect place to gain clarity and have the headspace to move forward. 

  • Refreshments. 

  • A 50% discount voucher for my online course 'Business goals' - a perfect accompaniment which is packed full of resources to support you further.
