Have you ever admired someone who seems so confident when they walk into a room, start chatting to people with such composure and can describe what they do with real clarity? Perhaps you’ve wished you could be like that too.
Well, you can. You really can.
If that sounds impossible to you right now, you’re not alone. Suspend your disbelief, trust and know you can do it - and read on.
You probably went into business because you’re good at what you do and have the potential to make your business a real success. You probably also know, at some level, that in order to make your business really successful you need to get out there to talk to people and to give presentations about your products or services.
But perhaps you hate the thought of it.
How else can you see it?
If you think about talking to people you don’t know or about speaking to a group with fear, try thinking of it this way:
‘There are far more people out there who need your help than you can possibly reach by word of mouth or by waiting for them to contact you. You are doing those people a disservice if you don’t step up to tell them how you can help.’
Once you make that switch in your head and decide that you’re going to do it, the rest can be learnt.
You can learn how to walk into a room and to represent yourself and your business with confidence. You can learn how to engage in conversations with people you don’t know and tell them about your business with clarity. You can learn how to stand up in front of an audience to give your presentation with composure.
Perhaps the obvious bit is about learning how to write and deliver a presentation but it’s also a lot more than that. It’s also about how you feel inside, the overall image you give and ultimately the impact you make.
What do you need most help with, either to make a start or to take you forward from where you are right now?
Do you need to learn:
how to plan and structure your message with clarity
how to deliver it with confidence
how to quieten your inner voice of doubt and to present yourself and your business with composure
I would love to help you with all or any of these.

Do you dress to impress ?
What do you take that question to mean?
Is it asking whether you dress smartly, colourfully or outrageously?
Dressing to impress is normally said in relation to a job interview or another situation where the spotlight might be on you.
Whatever you take it to mean, the answer is ‘Yes, you do dress to impress’, however unconsciously
There can be a lot of confusion around what constitutes personal branding so perhaps a useful place to start is by saying what it’s not. It’s not about logos and letterheads. Logos and letterheads are part of your business branding. While of course there’s a connection between the two, i.e. a good business brand for a solo entrepreneur should reflect their personal brand, they are absolutely
How much of a risk taker are you? How safe do you like to feel?
There’s a matrix that you can apply to risk taking with 3 key issues to be balanced against each other. These are: the likelihood of the worst outcome occurring, the level of seriousness of that worst outcome and your own competency or skill level.
The idea of this matrix came to me when I was on a paddleboard, considering
