104 Who’s The Boss Taking Control
At first glance, it would seem that positive thinking, running out of time or lockdown restrictions have nothing to do with one another. But many of us with limited time develop negative thinking patterns because we become frustrated by our challenges and frequent feelings of being overwhelmed. This negative outlook then makes it even harder for us to manage those time challenges and move forward. Practicing positive thinking allows people with time issues to focus on our strengths and accomplishments, which increases happiness and motivation.

102 Collecting payments for your business
Last episode we were talking all things the Law of Attraction, this episode it is timely to discuss collecting payments for your business. Many people confuse merchant accounts with payment gateways but they are not the same. Merchant account services act, for the most part, as a liaison between your business bank account and the payment gateway. When a customer orders a product from your online business their card is processed via the payment gateway. The money is then moved over to the merchant account service. The merchant account service then moves those newly captured funds to your business bank account.  Having a easy to use for the consumer and easy to maintain for you is a big step in the online payment collection process.

100 Are you guilty of hiding out in your business
Whether you are a small to medium business owner, solopreneur, network marketer or an online marketer, there are times where we find ourselves hiding out in our business. Daily grind, regular tasks, product creation, clients, and all the other things that come with being a business owner can drive us further and further into our business and further and further away from connecting with others. Occasionally, these tasks and working in and on the business can be an easy excuse to hide away. By driving ourselves further away from connecting with others we are really doing an injustice to our business and ultimately to ourselves. We humans are creatures of connection; we love to connect with other human beings. Community, purpose and connection are key factors that can play an integral part of keeping the endorphins high, the creativity flowing and a positive attitude.

095 Whats your story
Since the beginning of time story telling has predominately been the way mankind shared and passed down to generations life skills. The oldest civilisations used stories to share the past, present and predict the future. Scratching’s, etchings and paintings in caves, pyramids and on rocks share stories of a life long ago. Why stories, because they evoke your imagination, they evoke emotion and just emotion alone lends itself to creating memories. I am sure you may even remember your first book that you read at school. Books full of stories never grow old, just they way we consume them. So what do books and etchings on a cave have to do with business?

090 Batching Your Way To Success
This is an oldie but a goody. You may have heard the term 'batching'. Batching tasks that are similar together and schedule them in your planner to do at the same time.  Our fabulously comprehensive brain goes into different states of association when doing tasks of a similar nature.  Flitting from one project to another take our brain some time to digest  the changes. As an example of batching, you may be doing your figure work for your business, it requires focus and concentration.  If the phone rings and it is a client your brain has to switch from task orientated focus and concentration association to one of social, higher energy levels and a different level of focus.   The time the brain takes to switch back and forth from a doing focus to a social focus impacts in getting back into the rhythm of the task at hand.  This is a simple example to illustrate how interruptions slow the process of our thought patterns.  Batching like to like projects is a way to stay focused and get through the tasks quicker. Here are a few tips to consider Pick the time of the day that relates to the batching tasks,  If in the afternoon you find it difficult to focus, schedule in your focus batching tasks in the morning. Schedule in your creative  batching tasks when you feel fresh and full of creativity Consider using a diffuser   with  essential oils.  Wild Orange or Lemon are fabulous and uplifting to stay refreshed.  You may consider some of the many      blends on the market including focus, or balance to name a few. Don't be afraid to turn your      phone to airplane mode or off.  If you need to concentrate and you want to stay on a batch of focus tasks, avoid interruption by not      using the phone for an hour or two. In your creative batching some      background music along with essential oils can help to get those creative   juices flowing.  Even moving from the office to an outdoor space can  have a positive effect on your creativity. List all of the tasks you need  to complete for a week and then batch like for like tasks and add them in    to your planner for the week.  Schedule in the time to achieve those    tasks.  Accounts and book work and targets  maybe some you      can batch together.  Follow up phone calls, emails and text messages  together.  Writing blog posts, scripting a podcast and social media  posts all require a level of creativity and this may also provide a means   for re-purposing content.

2020 has been are particularly challenging year to say the least.  This year hubby and I couldn’t go holidaying in our caravan and take a break. Most of 2020 I threw myself into my Connect Her business, transitioning from live, face to face events to online, virtual events and expanding our location numbers.  There was always the hope by the time November came and our birthday’s we would be able to take a break and have a nice holiday.  Well, that didn’t quite work out.  I decided if we couldn’t go to the fun, we better find the fun at home.  Firstly, two second hand pushbikes were purchased and we started doing short rides through our local area to indulge in a nice coffee or my favourite read more Lee Cummins is the founder and creator  of Connect Her,  also a Helping Practitioner, Accredited in the fields of  EFT/TFT Master Tapping Practitioner, Law of Attraction Coach, Meditation Practitioner, Business Coach, Consultant,  & Transformation Coach.

088 How to positively change your mindset with 5 words
Have you ever woken up in a funk, angry, upset or frustrated and you don’t know why?  Maybe, you woke up feeling on top of the world only to thrown into anger or irritation by a simple act.  How about if you could turn your day back into a great day with 5 words? I remember one day I woke up feeling great, I had a networking event to attend and I was looking forward to seeing the regular crew.  After the meeting I had a scheduled meeting with one of my top clients, I was looking forward to lunch with them. Now this is where the ‘feeling’ started to turn south.  Just before walking out the door I noticed a spot I had missed with my makeup.  I grabbed the bottle and shook it, it then preceded to flick globs of makeup over my nice top.  BOOM! Mood changed, it was one of my favourite tops and I needed to now go and get changed, this made me late.  Running out the door so I wouldn’t be late I inadvertently left my planner behind with pertinent information in it for both meetings.  This I was to find out until my first meeting.   As I was running late, I seemed to catch every red light, had people cut me off and couldn’t find a parking spot and I was now super late for my first meeting.  At this point I could have rushed out of my car and continued on to my meeting that I was already late for anyway.  Instead I chose to sit in my car, calm down, message the host and let them know I am no far away and have been caught in traffic. Does this scenario sound like something you have experienced?  The story may be different but the feelings and frustration, anger or anxiety may be similar to your situation.  Read More Lee Cummins is the founder and creator  of Connect Her,  also a Helping Practitioner, Accredited in the fields of  EFT/TFT Master Tapping Practitioner, Law of Attraction Coach, Meditation Practitioner, Business Coach, Consultant,  & Transformation Coach.

087 Change the Chatter with Lee Cummins
I have to say I am just as guilty of this as the next person. That is, how I talk to myself. You know that chatter that goes on and on in your head.  We can  tend to use negative words or berating sentences  in our thoughts.  Why negative or berating, because it is easy.  It is easier to look at the negative  side than it is the positive, to think positively takes more effort so we tend not to. Imagine the thoughts and words that we say to ourselves saying them to our child, Mother, Father, Sister, Brother or Best friend, how would you feel, how would they feel?  I am guessing pretty horrible, yet we let ourselves get caught up in negative self-talk through fear and ease.

Join Lee Cummins on this episode of the Connect Her podcast as she has guest Pooja Kelkar sharing how to accept change.  As Pooja and Lee discuss change and moving out of fear, Pooja shares some valuable tips to support change. Pooja shares her story......... Working in corporate world was not easy. The constant "guilt" of being away from the family was eating away at the very core of my being. I was unhappy in everything I did and it started affecting my health and well being. I saw this not only in myself but in many women around me. The constant juggle of balancing life and work was causing them a lot of stress. While I was in the similar situation, I found myself to be more optimistic than most and helping them overcome their issues. This is when I decided I needed to do something with the hidden talents that I had ignored for so long and from this need to re-define and 're-align' myself to the real me that ReAline You was born.

076 Dig Deep to Discover
Join Lee on this weeks episode as she mines for gold. I come from Western Australia and it is well known for the gold fields and mining up north.  At any of the mines you will notice massive open pits exposing the earth of what was once buried deep within.    Miners work tirelessly over weeks, months and years to remove the layers to discover the treasures below.  It is amazing what can be unearthed through the process of digging deep.​  What you may have thought was there may be something completely different.  It isn't until we open up and start using the right tools we start to discover what lies within. These questions are a great start to dig down and discover some thinking patterns.  To help unearth opportunities and realign your thinking, using discovery questioning and combining  with EFT tapping can help discover the treasure that is you.​This is true to with us as human beings, what you see on the surface is just that, sitting on the surface.  Dig a little deeper and there is more to the human standing in front of you.  Look into a mirror and really look at yourself, what do you see? When we take the time to do some introspection we can discover successes, limiting beliefs and a plethora of opportunity for ourselves and our business success. So how do we dig deep what can we ask ourselves? Here a five questions to get you started on your journey of discovery: Is there something that is holding me back from doing what I love to do? How do I describe what is holding me back? What is REALLY holding me back? What does this mean to me? What steps can I take to turn around from holding me back to being an an opportunity?

073 Its all in the cloud
Have you been tempted to put your toe in the cloud so to speak?  For me, it started off with a small Dropbox account I used primarily with a creative designer who was doing some work for me many years ago.  It was easy to upload and download the work without emailing large files. It was great and I fully embraced it while the collaboration was happening and then I let it wane.  Sure, I used my Dropbox account for certain things but not fully to how I could have.  For some reason I was hesitant to hand over my work, my ideas, my business and all that it encompasses to the cloud.  I mean where is it, where is my 'stuff'? It is only in 2020 that I have fully embraced the use of the cloud for the majority of my businesses.

017 Reverse Planning for Christmas
Does your business take a dip in the later part of the year? Today’s episode we look at what can happen when we forward plan. Now is the time to take a look at how to reverse plan on our forward plan. Working backwards with the end in mind and being prepared for the inevitable is a way to future proof your profits. In Australia sole traders and solopreneurs can feel the pinch, from as early as the start of the Spring Racing Carnival and well into March, long after the last NYE party popper has popped.  Working on the downward dip early makes sense.  Visit www.connecther.com.au to stay connected.

013 Be Who You Want to Be!
We all are subjected to multiple hats and labels. We wear multiple  every day, week, month and year.   Our lives change, our businesses change and we have to adapt, evolve and consider our options.  Sometimes, it is needed to sit down and take some time out to re-access, re-focus and remind ourselves of what it is we truly want and who we want to be. This exercise I have used over the years when the time has arisen to take stock.   Be sure to have some butchers paper or large sheets at the ready along with some lovely colored pens, some soft music and silence.
