I m thinking long term with this post.

I want to start a podcast. But I want to do interviews because I like listening to interview podcasts. But what do other people want? Hence this st!

Do you listen to Podcasts?

Mainly around business and social media for me, but I do also listen to some fun podcasts and Desert Island discs too.

Spending time with my Grandson really makes me think of all the joy in the world which is why I came up with this.

Here you go.

Do you wonder at your little ones?

Do your children have you in stitches?

I had sole custody of our grandson yesterday. Yes, they trusted me for 3 hours on my own!!

He's still alive and unblemished, so I did good!

But the time on my own with him gave me time to live in his world.

He's 2 yrs old and to him EVERYTHING is Exciting, a Wonder, Something New and FUN! Opportunities at every turn.

When do we lose that sense of curiosity and sheer wonderment?

After studying neuroscience with Lynda Shaw my mind is more open to how we behave and how our brains work and watching this little lad yesterday was a great learning for me.

It was miserable weather yesterday so I took him to a garden centre, we wandered outside looking at the amazing garden ornaments and searched for the fishes and splashed in the puddles.

When the heavens opened we ventured indoors for a coffee (he had a baby chino) and we also looked at the Christmas displays.

His eyes were like saucers.

I am learning so much from this little man.

What are you learning from your little people?

Is every day a wonder?

Let us know what amazing things are happening with you.

Have a lovely Sunday

Monday is Video Day!!

What can you write as a post on LinkedIn? Do you struggle for ideas?

Do you worry that what you write nobody is interested?

Does this mean that all you do is scroll and like?

Content is everywhere and every week I compile 5 ideas to help you to get creating content. It's easier than you think

This is week 45

In my video, I break down each topic, but here are the headlines

✅ Top Ten Lists

✅ International Stress Awareness Week

✅ COP 27

✅ Remembrance Day

✅ Tax Return Deadlines

Come on, give it a go.

If you have some other ideas please let me know.

My surgery is today too. See for more info

My Book is launching soon so I want to make sure that people are anticipating it so that when it does launch hopefully some people will make purchase!

Here’s the post.

Do you fancy writing a book? Have you started yet?

Now that my book is finished (1 week until launch day 🥳) I am seeing all kinds of scary facts about writing that book. 😱

Did you know that many people want to write a book? Many of those people actually go ahead and start writing a book.

But did you know that only 3% of people who start actually finish?

That's crackers. If I'd had known that I may not have started 😂

But here's the thing. If I can do it then anyone can.

I was talking to a lovely client yesterday who said that she loves my writing, but I shared with her that I was in the bottom set for English at school.

I was top in Maths, French and science, but bottom stream for English.

This has held me back.

All these years of thinking I was rubbish and cannot write have stopped me from doing so much.

But not anymore. LinkedIn has helped me. 🙏

By turning up regularly and writing my little blogs and posts I am training my brain that I can write.

✅ That I have something to add.

✅ That I can entertain people.

✅ That I can inspire people

✅ That I can help people just follow my examples.

It's not difficult.

You just have to start.

You are not rubbish, you just haven't practised enough. Or maybe you haven't found the right people. Your old teachers may not be right after all.

If you want a hand to write that book why not reach out to Hayley Smith who has helped me? Or the excellent Michael Heppell who has the plan to help 1,000 people write 1,000 books in 1,000 days.

It was certainly Michaels's energy and enthusiasm that got me fired up!

When are you going to start writing? What would your book be called?

If you visit this post you can download this document! How cool is that?

Do you want to make the links to your blogs and videos easier to find? Do you want to share your branding further?

Are you fed up with URLs that make no sense?

You are gonna love this. ❤️

This is a great trick taught to me by the Relentlessly Helpful LinkedIn Nerd.

Stand up John Espirian. And take a bow.

If you create your unique URLs it's easy to share your videos, blogs and podcast, but you are also Sharing Your Brand.

As The 15 Minute Guy and my training in just 15 minutes a day then my new domain is just perfect.

If you want to know how to do it and what it means take a look at my slides.

Is this a good idea and what domain would you choose?

THURSDAY 10 November 3,193 impressions

My Banner for my book launch turned up yesterday so I thought I’d give everyone a sneaky view. This is helping keep people excited about the book release!

Here’s the post

What delivery have you opened recently that got you dancing with joy?

You cannot imagine how excited I was when this arrived yesterday.

The photo pretty much captures my excitement, but I was still on the ceiling an hour or so later 😂

This is the banner for my Book Launch next Wednesday. What do you think?

Designed and put together by my awesome graphic designer. She is patient, hard-working, has an eye for detail, and copes with my demanding nature.

She also designed my book cover!

Her designs have seen her create books and a great business with greeting cards and other self-designed items for the climber in your life.

She is also a wonderful mother and a wonderful daughter to me! Big shout out to Jessica Cover, my little superstar.

I am so pleased with my book and banner.

What are you pleased with?

The graph says I am down by 25%

Last Week 23,927 impressions and I couldn’t see the engagements because of a LinkedIn glitch.

This week 18,177 impressions and 561 engagements

Way down, wish is surprising. I do not measure my live performances. There’s only so much I can do. Maybe these were down?

How was your week?
