Podcast Ep30: April 19 2019

Application: In our Easter episode, we discuss ‘proper’ tennis, Tough Mudder training, being more Tiger and why this is all linked to finding the learning in everything we do. Sharon is very decisive (except when she’s not) and Ginette gets to talk to some fun people. We resurrect @TrainerTalkPod and talk about how to stand out against 99,999 other trainers (which involves reading, trying and making sure people can’t see up your nose); it’s also revealed that even the UN comes to Sharon for trainers. In other news, Ginette’s forehead is a bit red and shiny at the moment, and Sharon catches the wildlife colluding on the Dog Walk. Just your average week really …

Podcast Ep29: April 12 2019

Assumptions: this week we may have only had half a week to talk about, but we crammed an awful lot into it, including a debacle, a dig and a decision that gurus don’t always know best; Sharon is a zesty-action-taker with recruiting a new member to Team Podcast and Ginette struggles with the clock-change but still swings those kettle bells about; we assume that we can cover something as complex as assumptions in business in our top of mind discussion slot and lose our way somewhat when getting sidetracked about Instagram; in the Dog-walking Digest it’s V.E.T. time, we banish excuse-itis with the Book of the Week, look forward to the next Trainer Talk Live and find a way to have lots of tabs open, without having lots of tabs open …

Podcast Ep28: April 5 2019

Action! In this week’s episode, everything is topsy-turvy and not just because of the clocks going forward. We record the day before publishing (the pressure!) and Sharon has clearly been abducted by aliens as her clone has been both sensible AND detailed with the long-awaited review of Mighty Networks. Ginette reflects on the success of her online course creation Bootcamp, and we chat about how taking action is the only way to see business success. In other news, we discuss why eating cake in Dorset is mandatory – even if you’re “just being polite” (yeah right) and how the book of the week sparked a zesty-action-taker into doing the do!

Podcast Ep27: March 29 2019

Attention: in the latest episode Sharon and Ginette talk about the M word (and the S word) and how we all do more of it than we think; we take a surprising look at productivity and also how you’re never too old to smash a limiting belief. Top of Mind this week is a dive into just why it might be that people don’t always give our communication their full attention – and how we as consumers are just as guilty! In the Dog-walking Digest, Sharon’s been distracted by lambs and Ginette brings us the latest on bike-rack-gate. Last but not least this week, there’s a squishy procrastination-buster to get hold of too!

Podcast Ep26: March 22 2019

Breaks: in our longest episode yet, we talk about our packed weeks with several highlights including someone taking us seriously enough to join up (yes really), a new handbag with a false first impression, a tennis honour and what it means to be differently relaxed. We discuss what taking a break from business really means and find out that Sharon doesn’t take holidays in case she never comes back and Ginette doesn’t take holidays because it’s not productive (this is why we’re definitely not role models). The Dog-walking Digest is a muddy affair with a bit of a white lie and we also cover why Tom Cruise should be your content strategist and how Mercury might have been having some technological fun …

Podcast Ep25: March 15 2019

Delegation: we’re a quarter century in and it’s time for a spring clean – but only when you get to speak to the right person! Sharon does her best to beat herself up, but Ginette’s the one who ends up apologising; we talk a lot about creating space to have time to enjoy your business, but do we self-sabotage the time we create? In the Dog-walking Digest, Jem has a little adventure and we discuss how Councils seem to spend a lot of money on dubious projects at this time of the year. There’s no event (tells us about yours!), but there is a HUGE book to read and a blog idea generator to use.

Podcast Ep24: Mar 8 2019

Referrals: this week we reflect on why sitting in a room can be knackering even if you do have drugs … when something isn’t just good it’s gooood, Ginette arranges a surprise guest appearance at Trainer Talk Live to help celebrate ten years of The Trainers Training Company and we find out what Uncle Bulgaria’s got to do with it all. Our top of mind topic is all about referrals, which unsurprisingly leads us to talking about niches (again), before Sharon confesses to kicking even more varieties of wildlife out of the way on her dog walk. Last but not least, we got some fan mail!

Podcast Ep23: Mar 1 2019

Commitment: In this episode we can confirm that Sharon looks like her photos and never misses an opportunity to remind someone about an action they promised to take … in other news, The Trainers Training Company and Trainer Talk have both had a website refresh from Ginette and are now showing off some pretty special new looks! We talk about the importance of first impressions, saying thank you, weekly newsletters, being consistent, trusting the process and taking a step back to consider the bigger picture. In this week’s shock news from the Dog Walk, Sharon gets kicked (yes really) by a random stranger and Ginette tests being flexible to the limit!

Podcast Ep22: Feb 22 2019

Reasons: In this week’s episode (sponsored by the word ‘Bonkers’), Sharon finds her meditative trance, new personal development opportunities and yet more wildlife – but also finds someone trying to be her, at least on LinkedIn! However every cloud and all that … Ginette meanwhile gets an unexpectedly pleasant customer service experience, an unexpected present and an unexpected shock that this is the SECOND time someone’s tried to steal Sharon’s work and identity! In other news we talk a lot about why we bother being freelance at all, giddiness at the upcoming first Trainer Talk Live of 2019 and how WTF is all about ‘characters’ …

Podcast Ep21: Feb 15 2019

Statistics: In the 21st ‘It’s THEIR stuff’ episode, we discuss life’s important topics such as stinky candles. Sharon almost takes firestarting a little too literally and then talks about spreadsheets (twice), before revealing that the explosion of wildlife might be less about Eau d’Gaskin and more about last summer’s heatwave. Ginette isn’t so sure she should’ve gone to a certain high street optician and fails miserably to predict which month is rubbish for sign ups. Happily we do talk quite a bit about something work-related – this week, we tackle whether stats really matter …
