004: How to Tap Into The Seasons of Your Business (and your Body) to THRIVE!

By March 16, 2018April 9th, 2018The Simplifiers Podcast

As business owners, we seem to go through seasons in our lives and in our businesses. In this episode, Amy shares her wisdom and how to tap into the seasons of your small business and as a woman, so you THRIVE.


And here’s the thing… maybe it’s all linked to the weather, the moon cycles and your monthly cycle!?!!

Let’s break that all down and simplify it.

This is part 2 of our podcast taping in front of a live studio audience at our launch party.  This time, the spotlight is on Amy Phipps of Women Who Create UK.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How we can thrive in each season we face in our careers
  • Why it’s so important to give yourself permission to evolve and what that (practically) looks like
  • Simple ways on how to cope when the weather is grey, dark…and let’s face it, MISERABLE outside
  • What is “Hygge?” (pronounced like “cougar”) Well, it’s the “Scandinavian trend of Coziness” and we talk about it… huh, who knew?
  • The importance of having your own cheering squad

My challenge for you this week:

If you work in a co-working space, I challenge you to make eye contact and say hello to one new person a day, when you go to make your cups of tea.  Reach out and make a concerted effort to acknowledge the people around you. This is what builds community over time.
