I can see from this interview: 1) how my business has evolved in the space of a year and 2) that my skills as an interviewer/interviewee have improved. If you'd like to know more about Carl's Undercover Entrepreneur opportunity, you can find information here:  www.undercover-entrepreneur.com  Great News!!!

Episode 6 Consistency is EVERYTHING!
"Do what is easy and your life will be hard.  Do what is hard and your life will become easy" - Les Brown  Can you believe that my guest Carl Pate and I have had the pleasure of meeting with the great man Mr Les Brown in person!!!!  Today's episode is all about consistency, and as Carl points out, nothing looks different really from one day to the next, but stick with the small steps, because in time the progress will become huge.  For me, consistently writing daily goals and activities into a journal has literally changed my life.   And I made an error in the interview - can I just point out that I've written my journal every day for THREE and a half years.  Not two!  Go Me!!!   ** Here are the links to Carl's book and websites: Making S#!t Happen by Carl Pate https://amzn.to/2JlW7lP   www.productivitypowerhouse.com www.dailylifetracker.com  www.undercover-entrepreneur.com   Have a wonderful week!

Episode 5: How The Impossible Wasn't! (Or how I became tee-total without really trying)
Here are some of the things I love about being alcohol-free on a night out!!   Dancing like no-one is watching - they're not. They're all too drunk  - Keeping my 'high heels' on all night  - Remembering what everyone said  - Not regretting anything I said  - No hangover  - A good night's sleep - Leaving when I wanted to  -  Jumping into my car instead of waiting for a taxi  - Not needing to pay for a taxi  - Paying 30p per drink (less than 50 cents) for a soda water instead of £4.50 per drink - Putting the money I saved into a pot  - Counting what's in the pot  - Booking my next 'extra' holiday  - Feeling proud  - Not worrying about still being over the limit the morning after  - Having the energy to tackle anything that the day has in store  Have you ever wondered why life doesn’t feel quite like you expected? Why it can seem like so much effort - and sometimes it’s all you can do to just get through the day so you can finally crack that beer open or pour yourself a glass of wine?  Do you find yourself more tired than you’ve been in the past? Maybe shorter with your family, or your kids?  And the stress! It just keeps coming. From all angles. At home. At work. Kids. Family. You name it.  Somedays the only thing you look forward to is a drink…. Alcohol seems to be the only thing that is holding your life together.   http://bit.ly/100daysDDLPodcast😀  For more detail about the Directory of a Dream Life 50+ workshops or to take advantage of the early bird offer on my  Directory of a Dream Life Journal, go here:   http://www.gurgleit.com/mybestlife ***  You can record your lifehack contributions  as a voice message at www.anchor.fm/ddl50/messages   It can be anything that makes our lives easier, happier or more productive  😀 FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM!!  @dream_lilfe_50plus  FACEBOOK:  @gurgleit or  Marchia At Gurgle It

Episode 4: One Day or Day One?
My guest Debbi Frost can be contacted via wandaspath@outlook.com  She has recently written about her healing journey in a chapter called ‘My soul no longer screams in the dark’, which will be published in the book Perfect Health,  due out this coming September. Her chapter is an invite to share in a deeply personal story of learning and healing with a focus on how EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) therapy has been instrumental in resolving her symptoms of C-PTSD, which included frequent night terrors.  Debbi has written about her journey to inspire anyone who needs to believe a healthier and happier life is possible. Her own motto is: We learn, then we live. Or, as the incredible and inspirational Maya Angelou wrote: …when you know better, do better. Note:  Second  lifehack this week - mentions 'a grey downward V' on FB posts.   I should in fact have said ' 3 little grey dots'.  SORRY!

Ep 3: Just Do It!
Whether it's making a drastic life change or just finding the courage to start a new project or hobby  - don't just think about it.  Do it! “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”  Les Brown *** Find out more about Claire Cahill on FACEBOOK or on her company website www.accendocoaching.co.uk  The site has links to Claire's book as well as some free downloads. *** Click here for  Mel Robbins TED Talk  - How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over For more detail about the Directory of a Dream Life 50+ workshops or to take advantage of the early bird offer on my  Directory of a Dream Life Journal, go here:   http://www.gurgleit.com/mybestlife ***  You can record your lifehack contributions  as a voice message at www.anchor.fm/ddl50/messages   It can be anything that makes our lives easier, happier or more productive  😀 FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM!!  @dream_lilfe_50plus  FACEBOOK:  @gurgleit or  Marchia At Gurgle It

Episode 1. WELCOME - and join in!
 😀This is the very first episode!  Thanks for being here. My aim is that each week we'll have an invited guest along to advise us on how we might look at and change the bigger things in life – whether it’s mindset related, or health, money, career or appearance etc.  I’d like your help to.
