How To Give Your Story A Voice

How To Give Your Story A Voice

Mindset, Story
“But I don’t have a story!" she says, defiantly. Another waste-of-time workshop, masquerading as a fix-all for the broken business woman. Stories are reserved for those with racy pasts, romantic tragedies; the comeback kids. She was just a middle-of-the-road, (wannabe) middle-class, miserable girl who was trying to ‘make it’ - whatever that meant. That night she had a dream. She was taken back to the first week of university, when she met on intense character who would quickly become her closest friend, mentor, confidant - and fellow mischief maker. Her friend had a story. Oh boy did she have a story. One that our middle-of-the-road protagonist had no way of relating to - she had led such a bland existence in comparison. Unsure of what to say after hearing her…

The Power Of The Truth—Thea’s BIG truth.

The Power Of The Truth—Thea’s BIG truth.

Confidence, Mindset
“How To Earn six figures.” This topic has been trending for a few years now. There are a tonne of business coaches & ‘I’m-a-stay-at-home-Mom-&-I-had-one idea-about-a-green-health-shake-that-I-turned-into-my-dream-life-here-are-my-shiny-photos-to-make-you jealous’ gurus out there (constantly on my Facebook feed it seems). Let’s cut the giant BS. We’ve been having the same refreshing conversation again & again with our Wildfire Women speakers. They want to tell the truth, from the heart. They want to talk about the highs, lows & what keeps them going when there are obstacles in the way. What truly matters. And yes, it’s possible to make money from your business dream (&/or get to whatever your personal goal is) but there’s no need for anyone to need to feel so terribly inadequate in comparison along the way. It’s time to tell the…

What’s Your Purpose? Answer These 3 Questions To Find Out

What’s Your Purpose? Answer These 3 Questions To Find Out

Mindset
Today we have Wildfire Women founder Thea Anderson tackling one of the biggest questions many of us choose to face in our lifetimes... What's your purpose? You have a purpose. You were born for a reason… Your life purpose defines you. It helps you know who you truly are. For most of us there is a gap between the life we are leading and who we truly are… The bigger the gap, the greater the stress. ~ Action For Happiness (Neil Crofts) There are many reasons that people seek to work with a life coach but one of the biggest is not feeling that they know the answer to this question, ‘What is my purpose?’ Some people are happy to coast along in a career that just pays the bills…

That Bitch, Comparison

That Bitch, Comparison

Fear, Mindset
I recently interviewed a heroine of mine, Jasmine Star - photographer and branding expert - a woman made from moxie, beauty, grit and what I can only imagine is fairy dust. She admitted to struggling with what I would call, comparisonitis. That she had been afraid there’s not enough room for herself and her fellow sisters. Someone has to get out of the elevator. But we know that the truth is; the only thing there is no room for is comparison itself. Her words stuck with me (may be because of the baked goods association): “It isn’t that there’s just enough of the pie to go around. There’s a whole freakin’ BAKERY of pies to go around!” So let’s talk about this. If someone as wildly successful as Jasmine can…

What Makes You, You?

What Makes You, You?

Mindset
Today's words of wisdom come from Wildfire Woman, Lola Hoad of One Girl Band. Thea read this in Lola's newsletter and knew we had to share it with our tribe! Take it away Lola ;) Something I’ve been exploring lately is what makes you, you. We’re told we should be 100% ourselves, be authentic, be true, but what does that really look like? When I was younger, I was quite insular, unconfident and a little bit insecure. I would subconsciously change my personality depending on who I was hanging out with. For example, I would pretend I was obsessed with Harry Potter because all of my school friends were, when really I just wasn’t that into it (sorry HP fans!). Growing older and riding into those first awkward teenage years,…

What happens when we give collaboration a chance

What happens when we give collaboration a chance

Fear, Mindset
More connected than ever? We live in a hyper-connected world. There are apps today that help solve problems you didn’t even know you had and enough social media networks to keep you busy all day. But are we missing out on real, human relationships? Collaboration over competition We’ve been brought up with Darwinian ideas that only the fittest survive - it’s ‘each man (or woman!) for themselves.' But the truth is, even at a very basic level, the vast majority of businesses are part of a much bigger value network made up of various providers, manufacturers, logistics businesses, distributors, retailers as well as the customers themselves. The ability to communicate, collaborate and connect with others is fundamental to any single business' success. So… why is it so easy to forget…
