Overcoming the need to know for sure – with Nicki Coe

Season 2, Ep. 15
Hello Rewriters - Happy International Women's Day and welcome to this month’s episode.Today I'm speaking with Nicki Coe - Marketing Strategist, Business Coach and Co-Founder of the marketing agency Luna & Lion.Nicki worked in corporate media for many years but always knew she wanted to work for herself someday. Although she was constantly coming up with business ideas and plans, nothing stuck – she was always stumped by not having all of the answers and all of the detail laid out before she began. It was only when she overcame the old story that success requires you to know where you want to go that she was able to embrace and trust the pull of the next step, rather than planning for the big end destination. Ultimately, it was through this letting go of control and the need to know for sure that led to her creating two successful and fulfilling businesses.During our conversation Nicki shares her thoughts on:Overcome the need to know for sure in your careerStarting a business with your best friendUsing your emotions and feelings in goal & business planningResources discussed:Risk Forward: the Rewards of Not Knowing | Victoria Labalme | TEDxSantaBarbara: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC6NIY56S0AThe Source | Dr. Tara Swart: https://www.taraswart.com/the-source/Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing (Tuckman's Model): https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newLDR_86.htmConnect with Nicki CoeConnect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nicki_coe/?hl=enExplore more: https://nickicoe.com/Find out more about Luna+LionConnect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lunaandlionagency/?hl=enExplore more: https://lunaandlion.com/Connect with MoniqueGet ‘The Weekly Rewrite’ for tips and stories about creating a work+life that works: www.rewriterewrite.com/get-the-weekly-rewrite.My flagship 6-week group programme Rewrite Your Career Story starts again Monday 30th May 2022 – join the wait list here: www.rewriterewrite.com/rycs-waitlistConnect on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_rewriters/?hl=en and LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/moniquelshaw/The Rewriters is written, produced and presented by Monique Shaw.

Intuitive career change and creating 'the sweet life' - with Sarah Potter

Season 2, Ep. 12
Welcome to 'The Rewriters' podcast. In this episode I speak with Sarah Potter AKA La Dolce Vita Coach. Sarah is a Hypnotherapist and Emotional Intelligence Coach, she offers Reiki, Marketing for healers, coaches and therapists and she's also a Vegan Cake Maker! Sarah describes herself as a 'multi-potential' woman. We talk about what this means during our conversation, but essentially Sarah has lots of loves and different threads to her career. She is unapologetic about it and she loves to help other women unfurl their own multi-potential careers too.Coaching and hypnosis helped Sarah get unstuck from an outwardly successful life in international marketing that left her feeling hollow inside. Using many of the tools we discuss in this episode, she was able to build a life that embraced her love for travel, service and creativity – all supported by a portfolio (or multi-potential) career.During our conversation we also discuss the role intuition and values played in her career changes and try to dispel some of the myths about changing your mind mid-career.Work with Sarah: Connect via Instagram www.instagram.com/ladolcevitacoach and find out more about her signature programme, La Dolce Vita® Resilience Boost here: https://www.ladolcevita.co.uk/ei/.

Is alcohol holding you back? – with Izzy McLean

Season 2, Ep. 11
My guest is Izzy McLean, a Transformational Coach and founder of The Whole Of The Moon, who works with women to help them make the changes they want to see in their lives. One of her key programmes She Bangs the Drum is dedicated specifically to women wanting a more positive relationship with alcohol.Driven by her desire to understand and get a handle on her relationship with alcohol, Izzy spent many years studying the science and practice of behaviour change before training as a coach and resigning from her leadership role in education to start her own coaching practice. Now, she's on a mission to share what she has learnt and help other women make the changes they want to see in their lives too. During this conversation Izzy and I share the reasons why we each decided to reassess our relationship with alcohol and where we’re at in our own journeys. This episode was created for anyone who has a niggle that their relationship with alcohol might not be working for them either.For more from Izzy...Access the free resources Izzy refers to in our conversation: https://www.thewholeofthemoon.life/resourcesBook a conversation with Izzy: https://www.thewholeofthemoon.life/bookJoin one of Izzy’s coaching programmes: https://www.thewholeofthemoon.life/shebangsthedrums and https://www.thewholeofthemoon.life/howsoonisnowConnect with Izzy: https://www.linkedin.com/in/thewholeofthemoon; https://fb.me/thewholeofthemoon.life; https://www.instagram.com/thewholeofthemoon.lifeConnect with MoniqueSign up to ‘The Weekly Rewrite’: https://www.rewriterewrite.com/get-the-weekly-rewrite.
