Easter Weekend

It’s gonna be an unusual one!

This year Easter will be within the hallowed halls of the NEC. Like 2 weekends ago but with 2 extra days.

It should be a lot of fun and I’m waaaaay more chilled than going into MCM.

I have no easter egg expectations, I have my slides ready to go and had a run through, I’m genuinely looking forward to it!

If you;re around I’ll be hosting events in the Cosplay Zone all weekend.

Blogging!

Ha! Well coachingforgees.com is getting regular content but this place, tumbleweeds right?

I’ll be honest, life is so freaking busy with working, blogging, speaking, podcasting, clients, meetings… It’s tough to find time. Something has to change. And it will. Plans are afoot…

But not until after Insomnia, PAX, Rezzed.

I have got the taste for speaking again and I have plans for content, low cost but awesome content. Short courses. Then a book. Then a membership site.

For now! The challenge continues and Nega Robin is slowly consuming members of the group. I hope they manage to contain him. I genuinely worry as to what would happen if he were fully freed.

Plenty of rest, some exercise, more downtime, some vegetables, see some friends. Oh man. That’s what I need. And my challenge focuses on my own wellbeing. People will drain you of everything you have and my boundaries need to be more defined.

We’ll get there! And there’s a smile on my face.

Right, meditation course and bed.

 

That’s Christmas done

Turns out I am not a very Christmassy person. WHO KNEW? Lots of people. Though many are surprised when they find out.

Having a birthday near Christmas is shit.

Having lost my grandfather near Christmas is shit.

Having had a relationship fall apart near Christmas is shit.

And of course there’s a vortex of guilt, envy, anger, sorrow, and more wrapped up in a pretty bow.

That’s OK though. I do regret not being excited to see my family, to hang out with my nephews, but I really struggled this year.

So next year I’m changing things. Australia? Maybe. Let’s see how it goes.

Don’t stick with what you think is expected if it does you no good.

Damn. This was a short paragraphy post!

Get help

I nearly burnt myself out twice this year.

I was tempted to flip the table, say “fuck all this and fuck you too” and go get a high paying corporate job, burning Coaching for Geeks to the ground and walking away.

An overreaction, but people act out when they go over threshold.

Both times I got help. My team grew, I handed over tasks, content creation, and now an intern has joined the team, and I have loads of people wanting to work with us.

Which is humbling and made me almost do a cry on a FB live.

Anyway, get help.  No matter where you’re struggling.

Was it Richard Branson who said “find a CEO to replace you who’s better than you”?

I don’t know, but it fits, so let’s say yes until proven otherwise.

 

I am sick

And have very much neglected this blog.

Being sick gave me the chance to sit down and reflect on what needs to be done, what’s been done, and what lies ahead.

TAKE THAT MANFLU! I am vaguely productive. Even if I got out of bed at 2pm, bitched and moaned about going to the shop for milk for my tea and bought mostly biscuits.

I am not a good patient.

So what’s coming up?

More courses. Why? People in our tribe want help with time management, personal branding, networking, procrastination, building habits, social media automation, and more. Also it wouldn’t hurt to have a little passive income trickling in and getting more people aware of our brand.

And other things. They can wait. I have more things to prepare for the blog and I’ll talk about the importance of content marketing soon. And should probably sort some branding out for this little blog…

Welcome, wait, this isn’t Coaching for Geeks?!

Nah, we all need an outlet that isn’t all work work work, and this is mine.

HOWEVER. I will talk about Coaching for Geeks and the awesome things I get to do through it, the slightly less awesome things I have to do because of  it, and bitch about THE BLOODY BLOG PAGE NOT DEFAULTING TO HTTPS AND I DON’T KNOW WHY.

Also I’ll talk about our courses (dating, getting more from life )development of new courses, games, shows, developing business relationships, personal relationships, and anything else that I need to get out of my head, down my arms, and out through my fingers.

You are now all my therapists. Good luck.

This will get a lick of paint soon. Maybe. Got webinars to do.
