#53 How to build more resilience into your business

#53 How to build more resilience into your business

Hey everyone,

thanks for your patience on my next episode!

As you might have heard I have broken my leg on new year’s eve, so this year so far has been a great lesson in taking it slow and really thinking about the foundations of my business and how they stabilise me. I have talked about this before, but between the pandemic and my accident I have really wanted to revisit the subject of resilience for small business and share some ideas. Here is what I talk about in this episode:

  • A key question I think we should all ask ourselves to identify where we need more resilience
  • What it can look like to make space for restructuring and evolution in your work
  • Some thoughts on insurance and risk mitigation
  • Working in cycles, making space for the unexpected and staying in touch with our numbers
  • Why building a list and having different income streams is so important

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Love,

Yarrow

#51 Shifting the ways in which we engage with numbers in our businesses

#51 Shifting the ways in which we engage with numbers in our businesses

Hey friends,

I am coming your way with a little solo episode about shifting the way we relate to numbers in our businesses.

This time of the year is usually so much about planning – income goals for next year, reflections on this year, thinking about where we’re at and if it’s “good enough”. For some of us this is right, but I wanted to share some reflections around how we might shift our relationship to numbers and goals in a way that feels good. Amongst other things I talked about: 

  • Lowering the bar way down for the sake of our wellbeing
  • A trick I use when I think I don’t get “enough” likes
  • The questions I ask myself to come to clarity with my financial numbers
  • How I track my time
  • Some thoughts around “valuable investments” in my business 

 

Enjoy <3

#50 Joyful business pivoting with Gina Wisotzky

#50 Joyful business pivoting with Gina Wisotzky

Hey everyone,

we got to episode 50, woo! Thank you so much for all your support and cheering on. I really fucking love this project and I could not be happier to share my interview with the wonderful Gina Wisotzky to mark the occasion. Listening back just now my heart is so full – there was so much inspiration, acceptance and truth in what Gina shared. Here is some of what we talked about:

  • Navigating the pandemic with grit and clarity
  • Being present with ourselves in our businesses and really listening to what is needed
  • Boldly changing directions when the time is right
  • Making space for intuition in our decision making processes
  • DIY media and walking away from social media

I’m so happy to know Gina and to know I am not alone in working all these strange, difficult and exciting things out.

Gina Wisotzky is a tarot reader, teacher, writer and the creator of Incandescent Tarot. With four years’ experience reading professionally and almost twenty practicing and studying the cards, she believes in tarot’s power as a transformative tool anyone can use. When not reading tarot, writing, or doing intuitive work, you can find her gardening, cooking over-elaborate meals, and wrangling her menagerie of animal companions in Durham, North Carolina.

#49 Reflections on three years on Patreon

Hey everyone,

I am about to celebrate three years of growing a Patreon and wanted to share an episode with some reflections on:

  • How what I am offering has changed over the years
  • What has worked and not worked for me
  • What I would do if I was starting out now
  • How I feel about pricing courses and building community

I hope this is helpful!

My Patreon account can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/daydreamingwolves

I also mentioned the waitlist for the Embodied Business Community: https://yarrowdigital.com/diy-business-school/ which will open again in January.

I would love to hear from you if you have wishes or questions for more solo episodes.

Thank you for listening (and leaving a review, that would be great!).

Love,

Yarrow

#48 Exploring voluntary simplicity in life & business

#48 Exploring voluntary simplicity in life & business

Hey friends,

I am sharing this solo episode on both my podcasts – Daydreaming Wolves and the DIY Small Business podcast because it feels relevant to both projects. I came across the expression voluntary simplicity this week and it’s been intensely on my ever since. While I never resonated with “voluntary poverty” there is so much freedom and pleasure in keeping things simple.

So in this episode I am exploring how I am valuing simplicity in my life – in the home I bought, the ways in which I allow my business to stagnate, in how I try to get better at letting things be what they are and be led by my values rather than dominant narratives. I am asking what it can look life to be right sized in the space we take up, to find our own kind of success and am also giving a little update on smartphone free life, in case you’re interested.

Let me know what you think!
