The Important Distinction That Will Set You Free and Increase Your Impact - 231

Jul 14, 2022

Most of us human beings are weird. We make these declarations about what we want, then when it comes to taking the steps necessary to make that happen, we do everything we can to avoid them. And the longer we do that, the bigger the task seems to be and the more we beat ourselves up for not doing it.

If you have behaved the same way, or you’re stuck at the moment, then take solace from the fact that you aren’t alone. All of us do it, and more often than not for the same reason.

In fact this situation came up recently in a coaching session with one of my Speaking Club Live members, Donna Ferenth, who has kindly agreed to let me share our discussion with you.

Donna is the owner of a multiple taste award winning artisan tea company called Unravel Tea, based in the highlands of Scotland. She first came into my world through my Snackable Story Challenge and has carried on working with me on her talks and content over the past couple of years in The Speaking Club.


Following our session Donna took action and I hope that listening in on our discussion may help to get you unstuck too.


What you’ll learn:

  • What’s getting in the way of Donna taking action
  • The important distinction I discovered around the age of 40.
  • Who Arnold and Betty are and where they get their power from. 
  • How you can manage your version of Arnold and Betty.
  • Why you can be sorted in one aspect of your life but issues can resurface in business. 
  • The double-edged sword of procrastination.
  • What the most successful people do in relation to completing tasks that move their business forward.

And more!!
