Start Up Stories and The Importance Of Communities

Start Up Stories and The Importance of Community

By Host | 25/02/2021

Listen To This Episode Guests About This Episode We’re joined in the studio by Adelle Martin, businesswoman and founder of the subscription community and base for her clients in the Women In Business Midlife Club. Alongside her, we introduce Susan Kabani, Founder and CEO of Ugenie.io, the community platform Adelle uses to manage her community. We hear their startup stories as well as how they built and managed communities; the wins and pitfalls and a few reasons how this differs from running your community in a Facebook or Linkedin Group. Of course, there are the usual ideas and quick-fire round on business tips. Join host Sian Murphy, and co-hosts Laura Lawrence and Jackie Groundsell for this lively and informative discussion. Key Takeaway Setting up an online community means getting to grips with new digital platforms. However, it’s not the techie stuff that counts, it’s the strategy around creating, managing and growing the community.   It’s the strategy that matters and having a plan for how it will grow and how you will manage it as that happens; setting community standards and listening to what your members want is what makes the difference.  The other key point was the difference between moving an existing community to a new platform, or meeting space, vs deciding on the space, and then creating the community from scratch.  Top Tips For Being in Business Top tips from our guests live on air… “Strategy not tech. If you don’t know what you want the community to do and how it will grow you will fail” Susan Kabani “Listen to what people want “ Jackie Groundsell “Decide how you want people to feel as part of your community and set the boundaries and rules around that” Sian Murphy “Have a clear purpose” Adelle Martin “Look after your community and make sure there aren’t any bad eggs “ Laura Lawrence

7 Tactics For Better Sleep with Fliss Foster of Sleepability

By WIB Radio Team | 28/01/2021

Listen To This Episode Guests About This Episode How are you sleeping? So many businesswomen are experiencing problems with sleeping. For some, it’s a new problem, possibly a response to the underlying stress associated with the ongoing Covid situation. Or perhaps it’s an issue you’ve struggled with for years. Either way, you probably want to get a better nights sleep. In the program today, we welcome Fliss Foster, who founded Sleepability. As a sleep expert, Fliss has helped people with all sorts of reasons for not sleeping and for whom the problem presents in different ways-not getting to sleep, or dropping off ok, only to wake in the middle of the night. Fliss shares her top 7 tactics for improving your sleep, and the women in the business team also share their challenges and solutions. Plus, some great book recommendations. With Host Sian Murphy and co-hosts Laura Lawrence and Jackie Groundsell. You can connect with Fliss and Sleepability at https://sleepability.co.uk/ Key Takeaway Most people suffer with poor sleeping at some time, and even more so in times of stress, such as with the Covid situation when this episode was recorded. The key is avoiding the stressful cycle of not sleeping and then lying awake worrying about not sleeping. If you can’t sleep, read a book, get up or listen to a story on an audio book – who knows you may even drop off. There are lots of potential solutions and some of them take a while to kick in so whatever you try, give them time to start working before you give up.

Could You Be Doing More? How To Get Unstuck and Take Your Life and Your Business To A Different Level

By WIB Radio Team | 19/11/2020

Listen To This Episode Guests About This Episode Does any of this sound familiar? Can’t wait to get to the end of the week? Feeling exhausted and relying on caffeine to keep going? You keep asking yourself ‘What’s Wrong With Me?  I should be happy! Well perhaps there isn’t anything wrong with you.  Perhaps you’re not happy because you’re doing the wrong thing. But why do we let things linger like this for so long?  Why do we struggle to make the change?

Register for the CSI Global Women In Business Event here… Key Takeaway Take time to think about and understand yourself. If things don’t feel right, sit down, get a pen and paper and think it through. Be honest with yourself about how you feel. Write down how you want your life to be, what you want to do each day. Just because you feel as though you ought to be happy with what you’ve achieved, doesn’t mean you have to stay where you are, that you can’t change your career. Just because you look successful and other people think you are, doesn’t mean it’s right for you, or all you can do. Change seems so much easier on the other side, but you have to take the first step. The first step is acknowledging that you want things to be different.

Listen To This Episode Guests About This Episode Lockdown 2 in the UK, the global Covid situation and the US Election are contributing to a massive global uncertainty – how do we survive and thrive?

Behind the scenes is Simone Mardell, Production and Media Manager. The host is Sian Murphy, who does lots of things with businesswomen. Key Takeaway There were 2 key ideas in this show! The first is to only focus on what you can actually control. Most of what is going on right now is out of our control, we can battle with a virus and we can’t control what’s happened in an election beyond our own vote. We have to focus on what we can control and that’s how we respond. The second is that in order to move forwards, and calm down enough to get the creativity needed to generate ideas to improve our circumstances, then we need to acknowledge what we are really worried about; what the real problem is and then take the actions we may not want to take to start the process to improve things.

Keto and Intermittent Fasting Diets Demystified with Karen Roberts Weight Loss Expert

Keto and Intermittent Fasting Diets Demystified with Karen Roberts Weight Loss Expert

By WIB Radio Team | 27/02/2020

We did have fun in the studio today, Karen Roberts is a good laugh who whilst she certainly knows her stuff about the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting, doesn’t take herself or the regime too seriously. Having spent 20 years as a fitness expert, Karen decided to give up the 20 fitness classes she was teaching a week, and starting using her brain instead of her body as a transformation coach. The days spent sitting down instead of jumping around, together with nibbling from the fridge, meant the pounds piled on and before she knew it she was 3 stone overweight. Her journey to shed the weight, and the excess skin, has now led her into a new business as she helps other businesswomen to do the same. Karen shares the facts behind the Keto Diet, and how it can work alongside Intermittent Fasting to not only help you lose weight but free you of the need to always be worrying about where the next food fix is coming from when the brain fog and hangry sets in.
