A bit about my guest on today’s episode:

My Guest today is Paul Holbrook who describes himself as all round optimist and the Creator of The Diary Detox.

Paul is a time rebel, speaker and author who walked away from a 20-year career in the City of London having become frustrated at standing-by watching the toxic effect of people's diaries on themselves and those around them without them realising it. On the way to creating a world of better-led people, Paul stumbled across the Diary Detox®, a business that he now runs.

Having covered a variety of roles within technology and people management, Paul is passionate about improvement. He believes the only thing stopping people getting the most from themselves, is an unerring attention to getting the best from everyone and everything around them. It all starts with what's in their diary.

What we’ll be discussing today:

  • Time and how people waste it without realising.
  • Management and Leadership and how they're misunderstood.
  • The effect on not being sure where you're going.
  • The effect of not planning time.
  • Reflection on what's REALLY happening.

What's Paul working on at the moment?

  • Book – “What are You Doing?”
  • Diary Detox® Practitioner

Join our amazing community of Coaches, Consultants and Freelancers on Facebook:

And check out the Fearless Business website:
>> https://fearless.biz

A bit about my guests on today’s episode:

Lena’s a straight-talking Kiwi that has built a powerful reputation for herself as savvy business person in London over the last 17 years. In 2018 she threw a grenade into her life to start FTSQ. She wanted to create a community that supported non-conformists and the business owners within that community. The aim being to support them, via her consultancy, in achieving everything they were told they couldn't by F***ing with The Status Quo.

She uses all of the knowledge, experience and the huge network of people she’s gained after almost 30 years in business across multiple countries to help others. She’s had a highly successful career in 'adland', started three companies (FTSQ’s her third, she sold her second). Has traded her parents business out of near disaster when the Inland Revenue (NZ equivalent to HMRC) threatened to end them. Has mentored many bright young people that have gone on to do amazing things, and has made millions for the companies she’s worked for and with. Lena is a tenacious, force of nature. She’s a maverick, but she’s also a caregiver, she will forever watch over the non-conformists, because they often struggle to stand up for themselves, she does so because she often sees in them that others do not.

Lena believes there is power in the unconventional, the different and the unorthodox.

Here’s what we’ll be discussing on this episode:

  • Non-conformists.
  • Being a non-conformist in big agency corporate life ie WPP (OgilvyOne, OgilvyAction, Wunderman), Vizeum, Dentsu etc.
  • Why FTSQ Exists - what is FTSQ all about?
  • My life story - it's a doozy
  • Being a woman in business and not really feeling OK with being called a feminist - because I don't think I am Being a Kiwi in the UK There's power in your difference My illness - battling that while trying to keep my business alive

Let non-conformists know that there is a safe place to come to - FTSQ is a community where they can be weird, odd, unorthodox and know they'll be ok to be themselves there. Where one rule, rules all 'just don't be a dick'. Cause if you are, you answer to the Boss Lady and she will kick your ass out!

  • How to turn your words into cash.

About Trevor:

I’m known as the Crocodile Dundee of direct response copywriters. It’s a title I’m happy to have. I often have people try to impress me with their copy and the profits it's made them.

Yet as soon as I see their copy, I can instantly see where they are leaving money on the table. A quick “That’s not a profit! This is a profit” tweak . . . and they are making more money than they thought humanly possible.

Over the last 12 years I have mentored many copywriters across the globe.

And many of them went on to become world class and A-List copywriters and work for companies such as Agora Financial.

And I do it all while I live the International Lifestyle which began in 2006.

Long before I got into copywriting and marketing . . . I was in the banking profession.

Most of which was as a commercial lending manager.

During my banking career I estimate I interviewed over 10,000 business owners, pulled apart in excess of 35,000 sets of financial statements over a 20 year banking career.

This included 5 years as a self-employed commercial finance broker . . . brokering multi-million dollar deals for my clients between the greedy banks.

Since 2001, my breakthrough advertising and marketing strategies have consistently helped my clients double, triple, even quadruple their business.

At times . . . even more.

Here’s what Matt Furey (one of the speakers) said about me.

“Trevor Crook has a rare ability to find the financial leaks in any business that most great entrepreneurs cannot see. Once found, his powerful and insightful marketing methods quickly increase income while creating customer loyalty.

If you want the 'straight-scoop' with zero fluff, then pay attention to everything Trevor teaches about copywriting and marketing.

He is one of those rare marketers who can turn words into a magic elixir . . . from the stage or through his sensational copy. He has a knack for turning lemons into lemonade . . .”

What we cover during the episode:

  • Setting goals for your business and how to go about reaching them
  • Why processes are critical to achieving your big growth goals
  • Clarifying your personal measures of success - not always measured in dollar terms
  • How to bring your team with you on a change journey
  • Coaching and developing your team to get the best from them

All about Sharon Cully:

Entrepreneurs with big growth goals realize there’s a substantial gap between where they are now and where they want to be. Sharon Cully, owner and founder of Simply Processes, knows the best way to close that gap is through a clear, robust vision and well-crafted processes all with the right level of focus.

Over the course of 15+ years managing teams and leading projects in blue chip FMCG companies (including Coca-Cola, Diageo and GlaxoSmithKline), Sharon has successfully employed best practices and process improvement methods to increase performance and minimize inventory/operating costs, all while meeting customer objectives. She’s learned what it takes for large companies to succeed and grow, and that ongoing, recurring problems can kill business growth.

Sharon founded Simply Processes as a way to utilize her corporate experience to help smaller entrepreneurial companies gain control over their business processes, ultimately making more money while also freeing up the owner’s time, giving them more choices – to grow or sell their business, or simply work less. She works with entrepreneurs who have already been successful, but are now feeling stuck, helping them scale to the next level by working with their teams to put systems and processes in place. Clear, documented tasks and responsibilities, along with successful automation and delegation, ensure that everyone delivers consistently outstanding results.

Sharon is based in the UK but also spends a few months a year visiting family in New Zealand and South Africa, successfully avoiding the winter! Owning an online coaching and consulting business fits in well with her travels.
