This is episode 2 of 'How to reignite our sensual vitality with Brooke Maggs from She Desires.

If you are a seriously busy, working mum who feels overworked, overwhelmed and overscheduled, then we highly recommend that you listen to this two podcast series.

She Desires is a business that delivers coaching and workshops to help very busy women (usually mothers) regain their sense of self and their vitality.

Hold. The. Phone!

Our interview with Brooke reveals a candid conversation about how the state of busy women's lives leads us with a complete lack of focus on our own sensual needs and desires.

Let's be honest, the need to connect with our desires is often easily pushed to the bottom of our list. In our efforts to drive our careers, to love and nurture our children, to be good wives / partners and friends, to contribute to our communities and to pretend that our hair is not greying and our tummies are not plumping - we can sometimes forget the benefits that spontaneity, excitement, risk and passion can add to our own vitality and our relationships.

In this episode, Brooke provides us with some practical approaches to help us re-embrace our sensuality.

These two episodes are well worth the listen. After interviewing Brooke, Stace and I left the recording studio with a whole new perspective on life. These are the conversations we need to have more of. 

Enjoy.

“We’re pulled from here to there and always have an endless to-do list...this creates a numbness in our body...”

If you are a seriously busy, working mum who feels overworked, overwhelmed and overscheduled, then you may relate to this sentence.

And if you do, then get excited about this two podcast series featuring Brooke Maggs from She Desires.

She Desires is a business that delivers coaching and workshops to help very busy women (usually mothers) regain their sense of self and their vitality.

Hold. The. Phone!

Our interview with Brooke reveals a candid conversation about how the state of busy women's lives leads us with a complete lack of focus on our own sensual needs and desires.

Let's be honest, the need to connect with our desires is often easily pushed to the bottom of our list.

This is a different kind of wellness and vitality to prioritise, for our own sake and for the sake of our relationships. 

These two episodes are well worth the listen. After interviewing Brooke, Stace and I left the recording studio with a whole new perspective on life. These are the conversations we need to have more of.

"One of the hardest decisions you'll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder."

Ziad Abdelnour

This was one of the quotes included in Emma Isaacs much-acclaimed book; Winging It, that provided a huge a-ha moment for Jane.

In a follow-up to episode #62 of Miss Bossy Boots podcast, where Stacey shared her top three take outs from Emma Isaac's book about business, Jane now shares a couple of hers.

She relates Ziad's quote to business. "One of the hardest parts in business is choosing whether to walk away or try harder."

Having recently removed herself from her everyday life for a week with a trip to San Franscisco, Jane returned with much clarity, new ideas, free thinking and a renewed energy.

Two days later she resigned from a position that had been bothering her for at least twelve months. 

"I was so torn in this position as everything within my heart screamed to give it up but my head kept instructing me to 'harden up and to not give up'!

"By just giving myself enough time to think, I was able to see with so much clarity that the only choice here was to walk away. Once I'd made the decision, I've never looked back!"

The second quote that resonated with Jane was:

"If you're the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room."

This is powerful. And it's so true. Surrounding yourself by people who lift you can help you step outside of your comfort zone and become a better person of yourself. Stace and Jane both make a huge effort to do this in their business life.

If you feel that these points may resonate with you, have a listen and we'd love to hear any additional comments or experiences you have about these over on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/MissBossyBootsPodcast/

PS We highly recommend grabbing a copy of this book if you haven't read it already. it's full of aha moments and fabulous words of wisdom.

Miss Bossy Boots Podcast by Stacey Morgan & Jane Hillsdon - 1M ago

In 2017, Stacey created a manifesto, placed it in an envelope and forgot all about it. One year later, this letter appeared in her letterbox and surprised her. She was shocked to read through this manifesto and realise that there were many items that she had manifested had actually happened.

Stace also talks about the importance of a visible manifesto that you see every day, reading the items outload.

Jane is skeptical. Is it the manifesto that makes it happen or is it just all a load of codswallop?

Join us for this episode of Miss Bossy Boots Podcast as we discuss the possibilities that manifestos may or may not create.

Recently, we both attended Social Media Marketing World in San Diego. This conference was something that we had both wanted to attend for many years.

We set some goals for Miss Bossy Boots with the promise that when we achieved these we would road trip together to this conference! And that we did.

During this three-day conference, we had such an abundance of workshops to choose from. It was so hard to choose what to attend. We divided and conquered then got together to share notes and key takeaways from each session.

We also wanted to share these findings with you. So over two episodes, we'll share some of the info that we found inspiring, interesting and extremely valuable. These insights are definitely not restricted to social media marketing either. We share tips on goal setting, marketing, business and brand building, creativity and much more.

In this episode we cover:

  • How to build and monetise your personal brand -highlights from a session with Chris Ducker
  • How to channel your creativity - highlights from a session with Innovation Speaker (ex-Disney) Duncan Wardle

We hope you enjoy this episode and be sure to stay tuned for the follow-up episodes for more highlights from our trip to Social Media Marketing World 2019.

Miss Bossy Boots Podcast by Stacey Morgan & Jane Hillsdon - 1M ago

The world is changing. Workforces are becoming more nimble and flexible as people try and create balance between work and life.

But are they? This is certainly the hype we are reading. But in reality, are organisations (outside of Silicon Valley) really providing flexible working environments.

We talk with Emily Rennes whos has been able to negotiate a very flexible remote working arrangement with the organisation she works with.

Emily resides on the sunny Gold Coast but the head office of her organisation is in Melbourne.

Emily says that she values the trust that her boss - who created a more flexible working environment for the benfit of her own situation - has placed in her. As a result, she believes she is more diligent about getting work done, does not really have 'sickies' and her communication and reporting skills are second to none as she aims to let people know that she is actually getting work done.

So what's involved in creating a job that will better suite your lifestyle?

Emily talks us through the ins and outs of her role, the tech she uses and how she managed to score such a gig!

As self-proclaimed queens of 'winging it', Business Chicks premium members and long-time Emma Isaac fangirls, we both awaited Emma Isaac's first ever book; Winging It with bated breath.

In this episode, Stace talks through her defining moments of the book and how she is incorporating these take-outs into her work and personal life.

Stace's key takeouts of the book were:

Take Out #1 - Vibes Don't Lie

Take Out #2 - People forget what you have said and did but they won't forget how you made them feel

Take Out #3 - Leadership is about leaving your ego at the door

Take Out #4 - Women don't need to walk over each other to get ahead

Awesome takeouts that have sparked great conversation between us and of course led to some inspiring moments.
