Market Research. After not doing well at the first attempt to better understand my market, assistance from friends helped to better define my questions. Result... Find out more in this podcast. Learn more @mattsteer22 Facebook, Instagram, Linked in and website www.MattSteer.com.au
When you decide to go and ask your market for feedback, that’s what you get. In this episode, after spending time gathering what I thought where great questions I took it to my market. They told me what they thought. Listen to learn more. Further discussion over on FB, insta and linked “mattsteer22” or www.mattsteer.com.au
We have a choice - compete for the same market or decided to be slightly different and what your market wants. In this episode we walk through the decision if to compete for the same market with the same service as others or to be unique.
Becoming Known for a particular skill is very handy. People know the GO TO person if something isn’t working or need to trouble shoot something difficult or if your a manager and you know you want the job well and correct the first time. This is your goal when NICHE MARKETING. Here, in this podcast, we discuss how a skill in nursing and been known for it, is how you want your goal when your starting out in business. How you understand that market and a particular problem. Usual places to reach out to me for your comments, discussion or anything @mattsteer22 FB, Insta, Twitter
Grabbing with perception of what it takes to start a small business vs listening to business owners who have walked the path before. In this podcast, frustration excepting what these people had to say needed to be the focus on. After speaking to guys who have created businesses and watched others like me start from scratch, allot of skilled worked believe the same. In reality, business and been a true business owner requires a completely different frame work to create income.
Grabbing with what actually makes a business grow. In this episode, unease about the image of what was believed to create a business and make it flourish versus speaking to business owners and been told what must be done. Our perception isn’t reality after speaking to people who have walked the business path before me.
Marketing your product or service wasn’t something taught during my nursing studies. Yet, we have to market ourselves for Jobs, starting a business or working with the local soccer team with your kids. Our skill sets are diverse, from been a DAD to Running Emergency Departments with teams 280 people on the roster. The big insight, the market doesn’t care about skillset (straight away), they have other priorities. Jump into the Podcast to learn more
The hard stuff in business. We have a product which we believe will do well in the market. We are passionate about the product or service you have to offer... My insight this week comes after taking the time to work out exactly who my ideal client is. I relate this to experience working in critical care and understand the family member I am speaking to me about the patients condition. First seeking to understand them, in order to use language and words which will be effective for them. In business, it’s more than a great product or service, I must know how to tell my ideal client about it and how it will solve their challenge.
Be General and compete, Go Niche and Survive. When you Niche, you stand out from the crowd, you market yourself differently, your clearer on the type of client you want to serve. It also mentally more challenging - FOMO. Specialising as a Critical care Nurse required allot more study, more time learning, but now the opportunities are plenty for work. Developing your Niche market for your business is time well spent. This insight allowed an opportunity to step away from FOMO instead focusing on the types of people to serve and who to market to.
Habits which serve you will get you closer to your dreams. They keep you going when your not aware of the actions your taking.... Let me explained further.
Habits are things we do when a trigger is activated. The actions that follow the habit can be positive or negative, wanted or not. Several weeks ago while out with my wife of was reminded of trigger, which was conditioned in my nervous system, was activated while we were out shopping. This location was not the ideal place to be for the behaviour, in this case an emotional response, to be triggered.
Habits can be helpful for you, or they can be something which you are not aware of and can be sabotaging your dreams. If you want to create your dreams, create your financial freedom portfolio then you must become aware of your habits. The good and the bad if you want to succeed.
In this podcast, I discuss how the three-step process used to break a habit as per the book “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg can be used in your life as it has done for me many time. Comment over on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @mattsteer22.
What is in the mirror, the reflection back at you, are you not willing to See? I heard this quote and felt compelled to share it with you all. We can choose to see what we like when we look into a mirror, but in order to grow and become the best of ourselves we must be willing to find what we don't want to accept in order to grow and ebcome the best versions of ourselves.
Our conversation is what makes life around you. The people around you are all affected by the discussion we have, the tone we use, pitch and words we choose to use. The conversation can pick people up or bring them down. We can be mindful of what our unconscious is saying in the conversation, that is your body language, gestures and even our thoughts we are having about the other person all come through in our discussion. The choice yours. Let's jump into this conversation :)
To start anything you must begin with a single step. Talking about it won't get you anywhere. Telling everyone how big your going to make it when your sitting in front of the TV day after Day, will most likely result one year later your sharing the same story this time laced with excuses or "rational" explanations why you haven't achieved your goals and dreams. Whether you bubbling your way or ripping it open fearless toward the outcome, you must start somewhere & take consistent actions daily. The power to create your dream is within us!

When your gut is telling you something is wrong, strength comes when your able to discern if this is important or is it something else (like gastro from that food left in the fridge for over a month). In this podcast, I'm sharing the motive for the changes to the podcast which, as avid podcasters, you would have observed over the past couple of weeks. While away with family, my gut was indicating I wasn't concurrent with my purpose for starting this podcast. Taking the time to work through gut discomfort, been vulnerable to what is on the other side of the pain and in this case, and for you podcasters, its given me more material for opportunities to learn from what I discovered.

Who are you? Everything around us, can and does influence us. How we think, how we act, our values quite often have been passed down to us from loved ones, friends, family and the communities around us. Have you taken the time to construct your values, your beliefs, what you stand for? Do you have a personal ethos which you live by which helps guide you when there isn't any formula for working how to handle a situation? It's time to begin defining Who you are!
First in 9 part series on beginning to plan your life.
This series was fueled after students asked for advice on what job they would be best suited. This is a difficult question as I'm not you. For me, I value helping people by getting them to find answers they are looking for through asking different questions.
To begin the series, what do you want personally? From experience, many students and people I'm around, have not taken the time to plan out or asked different questions which changed how they are planning their life. When career planning, how you want your personal life to look can change what you do for your career or applying for strategic roles to help you career advance.

Personal Podcast where this event described in the episode impressed me where I've reflected on my journey so far and the lessons I've learnt that put me at my best. There is a theory that we have 60 million conversations a day, in our mind, in our heads and these set our course & focus for the day - we have the power to change them. This podcast is a reflection post ICU shift where the use of Affirmations throughout the 12hour shift, combined with visualising what the words meant to me plus the emotions I want to feel from living the affirmations. The energy which was radiating from me could be felt by the refugee family I had the privilege of looking after while not feeling 100% myself. The power our minds have is within all of us!

To think outside the box, outside of what has always been done, what we have been told to do, changes how we can achieve the outcome. what would happen if you changed your approach with a patient, your kid, your team where you work, how much would a break through help in that situation?

The ABRA technique I use to keep focused on the job during challenging times. There are times when you've been in the hospital, and someone is sharing their story for the third time, you understand that it is important to them, but you feel your mind wondering (something to focus on). The night before, something happened which has kept your mind off the job and that negative thought continual keeps reminding distracting from the task at hand. What about where you're making a change in your life, and you're wanting to show yourself compassion with the first acknowledging your thought is present, taking up valuable real estate in your mind. The ABRA technique has helped allot. For it to be effective, you must practice using what is explained in this podcast, regular, when you notice the thought you want to be removed.

There are things we can control and others which are beyond our control. What are you currently trying to control? In this podcast, I've recorded it while waiting for dinner, while walking outside. I could have controlled my time to record it better, I could have been warmer instead of shivering, I can't control what happens to it now it's out in podcast land.

Personal Reflection. In this episode, I talk about using a technique, which if used well will leave you feeling stronger and more invigorated. CPR is tiring and when the adrenaline wears off can send you into exhaustion. Over the years, especially when I have been out in the field where we don't have access to endless medical students, I have practised a technique which keeps the adrenaline under control, I feel stronger and more mentally alert for hours after.
Insight this morning. My use of visualisation has guided me toward changes in my life. Taking time to identify what I automatically did helped to change my course for life, I took deliberate actions toward what I wanted or to change an emotional response which could be triggered by an event. Your life is predictable if you keep doing the same thing over and over.
a Facebook live where I work through a trigger which identified. My thoughts after the event.
