Show Off Your Stuff With Horses!!!

Ever since horses started to be photographed and painted a million years ago, men and women have posed with them, looking sensational or stylish or striking (or not).  Either way, horses are a seriously great prop for selling any kind of accoutrements.  If you make or sell hats, clothes, accessories, boots, or even dodgy raincoats you need to get to the horse shows (like the RDS Dublin Horse Show) and to the races (like the Galway Races and Royal Ascot) and SHOW OFF YOUR STUFF!   You can either wear it yourself, have a celebrity wear it, have HM The Queen wear it, or have a good looking friend or model wear it.  Just make sure you enter any of the best dressed competitions.  It does NOT matter if you don’t win!  The mere fact that you entered and got on the stage means that you will be photographed and filmed.  All of the newspapers carry photos of the ladies at the races and at the Horse Show as do the magazines like VIP and HELLO and OK.  Horse racing is a situation where people will pay through the nose to get noticed!!! If your stuff is truly sensational you will undoubtedly get noticed and you may get orders.  Ps Schedule a FREE call with me to see how you can make the most of all the opportunities for free publicity that are available to you!...

You and Your Story

  Before you build a house, you gather your bricks and mortar (and stuff) and dig the foundation. Before you launch yourself out into the world, it helps to gather your raw materials and have a good look at them to see what kind of a profile you can build with them, and also to see how strong a foundation you have to support you mentally, emotionally, physically and every other way! The first module of my Mega Media Savvy coaching course focuses on you, your story and your foundation. In this session, I will probe and pry into every detail of your life, by asking you to tell me not just your own life story, but also the story of the business or entity that you want to promote. Why? Because human beings are hot-wired to engage with STORIES more fully and completely and with more impact than through simple information. If you don’t believe me, check out http://lifehacker.com/5965703/the-science-of-storytelling-why-telling-a-story-is-the-most-powerful-way-to-activate-our-brains. Or simply google ‘humans and stories’. So your story is your way of connecting with and engaging your audience in the most powerful way possible.  It is like a treasure trove full of precious jewels. Some of these jewels will already be visible to the world (like your beautiful eyes) and some will be hidden (like maybe your weird collection of vintage television sets or your insane knowledge of Royal trivia). Some of them even you have never noticed or acknowledged. We will endeavour to dig them all out and polish them until they are radiant and sparkling.   When we think of people who have been successful at promoting...

People are channelling their inner bitches in a good way!

‘Channelling Your Inner Bitch’ workshops came about because both my colleague Sarah Mc Candliss and I both knew that we were putting up with s**t in our lives, tolerating stuff that was making us angry, frustrated, resentful and most of all DRAINED of energy. But we both knew that it is SCARY to stand up for yourself, scary to rock the boat and risk disapproval and conflict….like a lot of people we just wanted everyone else to be really happy and to love us a lot and think we were the nicest people they knew….. But it wasn’t working. Because we were always saying yes to doing things for other people even if it was exhausting and leaving no time for our own work/health/social lives, people didn’t like us, they were scared of us!  Scared because we were irritable and cranky and prone to smashing plates and stomping around slamming doors (okay, that was just me) And so, we devised ‘Channelling You Inner Bitch’, a workshop to take people through the steps that are needed to take us from martyrs and wimps to strong, confident and assertive people. Okay, at first it is not easy.  And yes, there is a risk that some people might not approve of you, when you tell them that you wont go to their party, do their washing, listen to their bullshit, clean up their mess……… But it is worth it when you realise two thing. One….you didn’t die.  They didn’t die.  You are both still alive. Two….  You now have  all that extra time and energy that you used to spend doing stuff...

Would you be scared to channel your inner bitch?

Sarah and I have been doing loads of publicity for the Channelling Your Inner Bitch workshops. We got on Tubridy, The RTE Today Show and had the cover of the Sunday Independent Living section.  And even though we are getting a very positive response, lots and lots of people telling us they NEED to be more clear and assertive about what they want and need in their relationships so that they can have more energy, more peace of mind and a sense of being heard and respected by the people in their lives, there is one big elephant in the room which we had not even thought of!Channelling your inner bitch can mean having to be honest in situations that in the past you just let slide, pretended not to care about or really did not want to be honest about.  And that can be SCARY!!!! After all, we generally pretend to be fine with things for a reason, we don’t want to rock the boat, upset the apple cart, cause trouble, start a row, or make people not like us! And that is all fine, if the behaviour or the situations that we are putting up with are not causing us too much distress.  But if they are stressing us out, eating us up inside, making us angry and resentful so that we let the resentment spill over into other areas of our lives and affect the rest of our relationships, if they drag us down and cause us to feel like martyrs or doormats or hard done by or victimised, they can not only affect our health...
