I’m A Hypocrite!

Hands up, I really am. You may have seen my blog the other day sharing why I hadn't been owning it recently. (If you didn't, you can still catch my honest live stream from last week giving 4 reasons why we ALL need to own it here!) Once I started really digging into...

4 Reasons You Need to Own It

I admitted something to myself this week. I had two people whom I respect very much saying this to me... 'You need to own it, Helen.' It felt uncomfortable and awkward, and a little bit annoying! But I needed to hear it. More often than not we are pushing up against...

How to Stay Laser Focused Whilst Running a Life and Business

Recently in my Facebook group The Courageous Leaders Club I had a bit of a vulnerable moment. I shared with the group how I had compromised my boundaries and the lines had gotten blurry with my life and business. Have you ever felt like this? I felt like my life...

Prepare Your Talk So You Remember It and Sound Natural

I get asked this question quite a bit so thought I would take some time to explore it… A lot of people struggle when they are preparing a talk as they want to prepare it in the exact way they will deliver it and still sound natural and authentic. They get very caught...
8 Ways To Build Community Round Your Business

8 Ways To Build Community Round Your Business

As an entrepreneur working from home I have experienced loneliness on many occasions. Isolation plays a big part in how we conduct our business. We think we are building relationships because we speak to so many people online every day. But how deep are those relationships? You may have a load of followers but how many of them can you class as true and loyal friends and colleagues?

How I Learnt To Sell

How I Learnt To Sell

When I first left the corporate world I suddenly realised that there were a bucket load of skills that I didn’t possess. I had no idea what marketing was all about, didn’t have the first clue about how to keep accounts, and the thought of selling gave me the heebie jeebies. It’s safe to say that when I first started trying to ‘sell’ I got it all wrong.

No Adversity In Your Story?

No Adversity In Your Story?

I work with entrepreneurs just like you every day. And one of the biggest hurdles I help them overcome is owning and appreciating that their story is worth sharing. One of the biggest challenges I hear is – ‘My story isn’t full of great adversity. I don’t know why anyone would want to listen to it. It’s not interesting enough because so many other people experience the same problems. Who am I to stand up and share it?’

6 Ways You Can Afford To Attend EL Live

I’ve spoken to a few peeps recently and I’m hearing a bit of a pattern.

I’ve Been Inundated

Have you ever pitched for a speaking gig? I remember when I first resurrected my speaking career. It started a few months before I landed my TEDx gig. I did a google search for all the events that were happening in and around my area, got the email addresses and sent an email to the organisers asking if they were looking for speakers. What I didn’t know back then, which I have learned along the way, is that you need to do a whole lot more than send an email asking for an opportunity.

Leopards Can Change Their Spots

Leopards Can Change Their Spots

When I was growing up, I was told I was too nice because I trusted people immediately. I always believed in the people I met, thought positively about them and wanted to help them wherever I could. Over the years, putting faith in most people I meet has bitten me on the bottom just a few times. But when I think back as to why, it’s because I wasn’t listening to that little voice inside me. My instincts. I think that I can see when people are inherently good, regardless of who they are or what they do.

4 Reasons Why You Have to Start Sharing Your Story

I’m feeling sad and happy all in one today.  For the past 6 weeks I’ve been working with 14 incredible women to help them tap into their unique messages and stories and share them with the world.

How My Support Squad Got Me Out of A Pickle

A few weeks ago I was in a flap. There were lots of exciting new projects on the horizon including new programmes, my book and my first live event, and I was trotting way outside my comfort zone. If you have ever been there you will know that pushing to new levels...
