Artist Helen Elliott says “There’s something about being self-employed and always being very, very tempted to say yes to everything, mainly because of the excitement of new projects, but also because of the need to constantly build and have income.

In The Show

Judith and Nicola answer a question from a listener who wants to say yes to everything and yet earn a great living and enjoy some work life balance.

Nicola’s son Nelson has astro turfed their roof and Facebook closed down her ad account again. Not to worry, she’s successfully appealed. Judith’s enjoyed another lovely visit with a free lunch, she’s exploring Amazon Prime Now, falling back in love with 750Words and struggling again with hoses and their sun-baked connectors. #FBAds #SayingYes #FredSirieix #RupertMurdoch #HughGrant #Hectoring #Validated #Creator #Scanner #Thinkific

What's Fuelled Their Fire?

Nicola is uploading content to Thinkific and is impressed by client Kate Cocker who pivoted from presenter coach to podcast producer. Judith admires the team at Back to 60 for their fortitude in fighting for the WASPI women born in the Fifties who had their pensions stolen by the UK government. There was a second appeal this week against the government, result as yet unknown.

Focus Of The Week - Saying Yes to Everything

Artist Helen Elliott says “There’s something about being self-employed and always being very, very tempted to say yes to everything, mainly because of the excitement of new projects, but also because of the need to constantly build and have income.

Words Of The Week

Judith chooses Hectoring and Nicola picks Validated.

Project Updates

Nicola felt the pull to re-start her vzine, and Judith continues her work towards completing the self-authoring project designed by Jordan Peterson. She’s at 75% of the final module. Progress in this part is slow but steady as it is quite demanding.

Who Or What's Impressed

Nicola is impressed by Fred Sirieix’s restaurant travel show and by the Peterson family podcast, while Judith has her breath taken away by the Murdoch series on BBC iPlayer. Riveting TV.
