Permission to be a lazy-girl entrepreneur

Here&apos;s my secret to not failing in business: Be more lazy as an entrepreneur.While everyone else is waking up at 5am, adding 5 people a day on LinkedIn, having a different content strategy for Instagram and LinkedIn... I&apos;m here trying to make things as EASY and simple as possible.While these may be best practises - I just know that I don&apos;t want to spend my time that way and if I force myself to, I&apos;ll end up resenting showing up on social media and maybe even risking throwing in the towel in business all together.Playing the long game is the most important aspect of success in business that doesn&apos;t get talked about enough. So in being more lazy and doing things how I prefer to do them, I&apos;m helping myself have longevity in entrepreneurship.Useful Links:Come to my &quot;office Christmas Party&quot;<a href='https://www.tif

The no-think structures that keep me on track with business & mindset

Life happens. As  I&apos;m recording this, my son is ill and I&apos;m battling a weird flu of my own. This often does something to my mindset which isn&apos;t pretty  - but it&apos;s totally out of my control. Luckily though, I have several structures in place in my life and business which means I don&apos;t even have to THINK about keeping everything up.No-think structures are the activities that are already integrated into my calendar that keeps me in that CEO mindset, no matter what’s happening in life. Removing mental load, makes running a business as easy as possible - especially during trying timesJoin Overflow Collective hereL E T &apos; S C O N N E C T !&gt; Instagram: @tiffanydawson_&gt; LinkedIn: Tiffany Dawson&gt; Twitter: <a href='https://twitter.com/

Why I'm ditching Black Friday this year

You either love it or you hate it... What do YOU think of Black Friday?Some of us think it&apos;s a fun time to research deals and make huge savings. It might even symbolise abundance to you. Others may think it&apos;s a waste of energy and that it&apos;s negatively pressuring consumers to buy stuff they don&apos;t need.Either way, it&apos;s a huge opportunity for anyone selling products or services to take a slice of the pie.But this year it just didn&apos;t feel right to me - despite all my forward planning, I decided to pull my Black Friday offers this year after listening to what my audience really needed from me.Sign up to my newsletterEnrol in EXPLODE - a 1 week intensive Voxer coaching experienceJoin Overflow CollectiveOr<a href='htt

Shortcut to a confident, business mindset

What are you supposed to  do when deep down, you don&apos;t really believe that your business goals can come true?We&apos;re told to journal and meditate. But sometimes these practises can feel forced and inauthentic at the time. So aside from sitting in a room quietly with yourself, a journal and pen - what else could you do?This episode was inspired by a client conversation I had where my client didn&apos;t believe she could make good money from the industry she was trying to break into. When we delved into it, it was because...She had no one in her circle who had done it before! She&apos;d heard some stories of businesses going wrong and assumed that was her fate too.The easiest and most practical way you can instantly grow your self belief is to surround yourself with those who have either done it before, or want the same thing you do.It&apos;s time to NORMALISE your dreams - not make them feel like some unattainable feat.<b

80. What I Do Before I Meet Every Client for the First Time

I do something you might not expect before I meet any new client for the first time.On my discovery call form, I ask about your challenges and what you hope to get out of coaching.Before we jump on a call, I set aside some quiet time to put pen to paper.I journal about how much I feel for you going through these challenges and how much I can relate.I also write down what changes and transformations I hope for you. And more importantly, how good that&apos;ll make you feel.This puts me in a good place energetically by helping me set an intention for what best support I can give you.An added bonus is it helps me remember why I started this business in the first place:I know how crap it feels to be down in the dumps in business and career. I don&apos;t want you or any other woman to have to go through it ever again if you are wanting to work on it.If you want your confidence in career and business to sky roc

Trying to get STEM business leaders to take gender equality seriously can be so frustrating! Can you relate?Hear me talk about the 5 things I wish they knew which would finally motivate them to take action:No-one in STEM has got gender equality right (yet). So trying something is better than doing nothing.Don&apos;t focus your efforts on recruiting more women if you can&apos;t even retain the women you&apos;ve already got.Don&apos;t sit and wait for diverse CVs to roll in. Like anything that&apos;s rare and valuable, it takes extra time and effort to seek them out.You can&apos;t blame it all on the &quot;pipeline issue&quot;. It&apos;s a known fact that women drop out of the tech industry at a faster rate than men. Do not lower the quality of new hires just to recruit a woman.
