To what extent is self-employment a risky business? What are you frightened of? This week Judith and Nicola debate the real and imagined risks in business.
In the Show..
Nicola kicks off this week’s episode by sharing what she learned by running an online bootcamp with an abundant client for the benefit of her clients, specifically in the areas of language and attitudes. Nicola is reminded that she’d forgotten how much she knew!
- What’s Fuelled Their Fire?
Judith reads some of the reviews the podcast has received on iTunes and in other places, one of which likens N&J to Kim & Aggie! Nicola tells listeners about Patreon.com and Judith about Unbound.co.uk, both places to get sponsors and patrons for your creative output.
- Client Challenge of the Week
Nicola & Judith debate risk. What’s your attitude to risk? What seems risky to you in your self-employment? Are you fearful of the right things, or the wrong ones? What’s the worst that can happen? How risky is your own business when you compare it to having a “day job” which so many erroneously consider to be secure?
- Words of the Week
Nicola chooses Choices and Judith picks Hubris, meaning excessive pride or self-confidence. Nicola recommends an article by James Schramko called Simple Choices to Change Your Life.
- N&J Project Updates
Nicola is proud to have allowed herself to be squidged once, but not twice. And Judith is thrilled that her Lotto project finally launched.
- Who or What’s Impressed?
Judith is impressed by writer Aaron Sorkin, writer and creator of The West Wing, and Nicola is enjoying a couple of books by James Altucher, particularly Choose Yourself.
