Do the heart work first

Do the heart work first - Christine Sheehy

Do you resist what you most long to do? The work of your heart. That creative dream. The yearning to shift your business in a new direction, to let go of the old and invite your clients into the new. Maybe your dream is to make a film, write a book, create your own jewellery […]

Have you lost the flow in your business?

Have you lost the flow in your business?

Are you struggling to show up online, create valuable content, or figure out how to get your message to those who need it most, in a way that feels good to you?

Ever doubt the value of your work? This is for you

What is your contribution to the world?

In the late 1800s, two ships were wrecked at opposite ends of the sub-Antarctic Auckland Island, within a few months of each other.  Neither crew knew the other was there.

Are you afraid to step into your light?

How to create a great customer experience online

customer experience

There was a time in the early 2000s, when I thought the little corner fruit & veggie shop was dead. Everything was growing bigger and bigger. Giant complexes were popping up filled with the likes of Pak and Save, Kmart or Target. How could the little ‘mom and pop’ shop survive in an age of […]

Struggling to write your site? Do this first

write your website

So you’re trying to write your website. How hard could it really be? It’s just the longer you sit at your keyboard, the less the words seem to flow. You’ve written plenty of other stuff in your career – essays, reports, papers, articles. But this is different. You know your words will go before you, to […]

How to unlock your voice and write from the heart

One of the biggest and most important challenges entrepreneurs face, is finding your authentic voice. Your voice is what sets you apart from the others in your field. It’s the magic je ne sais quoi that takes your content from dry, dull and formulaic, to engaging, thought-provoking, poignant, or laugh-out-loud funny. Your voice gives your […]
