What running a business during 2 recessions taught Maggie Patterson

Maggie Patterson
Maggie Patterson is the editorial director at Scoop Studio and the creator of Small Business Boss. With two decades of experience, Maggie has spent her entire career in client services and has been a successful entrepreneur for 15 years.

Today, she works with freelancers and agency owners to help them implement smart strategies for business growth using proven marketing, sales, and client experience tactics. She’s the host of the Small Business Boss podcast, has been on stage at events such as New Media Expo, Podcast Movement, and the Conquer Summit, and her work has been featured in leading publications such as Entrepreneur.com, Fast Company and Virgin.com.


In today’s episode, we talk about mental health, our frustration with how suddenly way too many people consider themselves to be an epidemiology expert (we’re looking at you tech bros) and what running a business through previous market downturns has taught us (and why that’s not always going to track into this one.)

Maggie shares her wisdom about what core skills and practices we all need to be focusing on right now (hint: they may not be sexy but they’re what bring in the money) and, of course, what’s giving her joy.

The Unlost Woman – with Robyn Holloway

The Unlost Woman – with Robyn Holloway

Robyn Holloway
Robyn Holloway helps women of a certain age become unlost – that is to say, to rediscover the vibrant person they were before life, laundry and taking care of everyone else got in the way. She is a certified coach, trainer and positive psychology practitioner. Robyn’s approach combines intuition with a highly pragmatic focus to help her clients create results they crave. She was prompted to become a life coach after putting off her own dreams for far too long. Her moment of truth came in the form of a major health crisis. After a successful treatment and recovery, she realised how short life can be. She reclaimed the woman she thought she had lost – and is now a passionate advocate for other women – helping them re-invigorate their own lives without waiting for a crisis to be their catalyst. In this episode we talk about how Robyn found herself lost in her own life – and found her way to becoming Unlost again.
She shares why she thinks so many of us lose ourselves and how the first steps to finding ourselves again don’t require us to Eat, Pray, Love our live and go off and join an Ashram but can begin with the simplest of steps. We discuss why awareness and boundaries are secret (and misunderstood) secret weapons and where to start when you don’t know where to start.   You can find out more about Robyn and her work at  Robyn Holloway Coaching

The Imposter Complex In Lockdown – with Tanya Geisler

The Imposter Complex In Lockdown – with Tanya Geisler

Tanya Geisler
Tanya Geisler is the woman I credit with helping me get over my own lack of self-belief, my perfectionism and my procrastination and create the business and platform I have now.

Tanya Geisler is a Leadership Coach (CPCC) with a penchant for clarity and an abhorrence of the Imposter Complex. She’s worked with thousands of high-performers combat the Impostor Complex so they can lead with impeccable impact and achieve their ultimate goals. She has written The 12 Lies of the Impostor Complex (and One Truth)The Joy Pages, created Board of Your Life and the transformational Your Impeccable Impact coaching program, is a writer, has served as a contributor and was featured in Canadian Living, and is an in-demand TEDx speaker who talks with great passion about the Imposter Complex, Unshakeable Confidence, personal leadership, on all things joy, meaning and purpose. Her clients include best-selling authors, public speakers, and rockstar world-changers.

It is her indomitable belief that if everyone knew their own unique recipe for their personal brand of joy, they’d hold the key to shining in their life, in their work and in their life’s work. (It really does change everything.)

In this conversation we get real, discuss the concepts of ‘yes…and’ and ‘simply…not easy’ – which honestly, have been seriously life-changing for me.

Tanya also shares her deep wisdom about what the Imposter Complex actually is, how and why it shows up (and who for – hint: It affects more women than men) and the lies it tells.

She shares her insights into how we spot the Imposter Complex at work (it can be a sneaky little sucker) and how she sees it particularly impacting folks right now in this time of heightened fear, change and uncertainty.
