61. Mastering your inner world
If you could look inside most business owners’ minds you’d find a lot of thoughts. You’d probably find plenty of stress, worry and anticipation of the future. There’d be analysis of what’s happened in the past, scenario planning and a series of what-ifs. Add into that thoughts about the family, the state of the world and other stuff and you have a mental cocktail that might just drive anyone crazy. So what can you do if you really want to be quiet in your mind?

59. Does business have to be busy?
There’s a strange contradiction for many business people. We want to be busy because it means there’s lots happening but we don’t want to be busy because it’s hard work and can be stressful. At the same time, many of us define ourselves by how busy we are. Someone says “How are you?” “Busy” is a common answer. So the question is whether business has to be busy or could there be a better way of experiencing it?

In this episode we explore a different formula which helps you to connect with the people and activities that will grow your business

55 .The Future of Business
How do we need to change as business owners and how do our businesses need to change to meet the requirements of the future? Since small businesses are so powerful in their ability to create solutions to collective problems it’s not a time for business as usual. Each of us has the opportunity to ask some bigger questions about the purpose of being in business and come up with some bigger answers. That’s what creates fulfilment.
