This week I was a guest for the first time on a PODCAST! And that podcast belongs to my business coach, SIGRUN. I never expected my business coach to become a very special person in my life. But that`s what happened, let me tell you the story…

At the beginning of 2017, I had no idea of my direction. Being a creative, I was having new business ideas every five seconds and taking no action on ANY of them.
I DO STUFF
I`m an action-taker. At 22 I rode around India on a motorbike without a map (but with a boyfriend), set myself up in London with only £50 to my name and moved across the other side of the world to get the treatment I needed to have a baby. I mean, I DO STUFF.
ACTION TALKS, BS WALKS
However, I never took any action on MY OWN fab business ideas. I could work like a horse on other people`s ideas, but my business ideas got written down in a note book (if they were lucky) and thrown in the bottom drawer.
I met Sigrun at a women`s networking event where she was a guest to give a talk on finding your passion. I was intrigued by this woman with the shock of long blonde Icelandic hair and…that energy! In the workshop, I came up with my vision of my future nestled somewhere in the South of France in a country cottage with chickens running around the yard… that vision is still the same.
BUT THERE IS SOMETHING VERY NOT THE SAME!
As this confident woman left, I glanced down and noticed her black spike-heeled boots. I`m like “woah, she is COOL! I want to work with her!” and later that year we began working together, when I joined one of her online business Mastermind groups.
DO YOUR OWN THING
At the time I was selling someone else`s product under license. The first thing SIGRUN asked me was “When are you going to do your own thing?”. Ummm MY OWN thing? What exactly was my own”thing” ?
SIGRUN`S X-RAY VISION
Because I`m an action taker, I kept showing up to the Mastermind meetings even WITHOUT an idea of my own that excited me. Then one day, one MAGNIFICENT DAY, while bawling my eyes out in frustration during one of our online calls – SIGRUN suggested I GO LIVE on Facebook for 30 days to BE the story-teller I said I was. When I got to 30, she said “Make it 100”, and I screamed but I did it!
LIFE CHANGED FOREVER
I went to over 160 CONSECUTIVE days of Facebook Live, and seriously, life was never the same again. Goodbye shame, hello self-acceptance and confidence. Goodbye business idea limbo-land, hello business idea and solid path to tread.
Now I am a Confidence & Live Broadcast Coach. I`ve been featured as a guest presenter on 2 professional online courses, an upcoming online summit (details coming!) have MC-ed professional events, and yesterday I launched my own TV show on Facebook – Michelle LiveLifeTV. All. In. 5. Months. And of course, now the podcast.
I could NEVER have done this alone, specifically I couldn`t have done it without SIGRUN. She is my mentor and my friend. I have never experienced anyone so committed to my success, so strong in their belief in me or who so consistently over-delivers value, value, value.
SHE WALKS THE WALK
SIGRUN has been in online business for only 4 years and is about to hit the $1mill sales mark this year alone. Yes, yes, I know it`s not all about the money but it proves that this former CEO knows the business she is in and where she is leading her growing tribe of women-entrepreneur followers.
So please pop on over and listen to me talking with SIGRUN on her podcast (she is broadcasting 100 podcasts in 100 days).
