Lisping about beta readers [new podcast]

I lisp my way through this week’s podcast.  No, I’m not drunk – yet… if you want to know why I’ve suddenly developed a speech impediment, tune in. You’ll hear Joe’s top tip about fitting skirting boards, and why that’s relevant to your business. And, of course, you’ll discover if you actually do need beta [...]

“Oh, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu… It’s tax time. How am I going to pay this?” Earlier this year, for the first time ever, I got a tax bill I thought I wouldn’t be able to pay. In the end, it was fine (a couple of invoices came in that I’d forgotten about) – but not before I panicked, [...]

Look at my gnashers

These are my teeth (or a 3D representation of them, at least):  In a moment, I’ll tell you how they’ve helped me become healthier and less prone to snacking. But before that, I want to explain what I just did and talk to you about some NLP-sounding shizzle called pattern interrupts. My introduction to this [...]

How the hell do you write a book?

Ever wanted to write a book? Or thought you couldn’t possibly? You’re not alone – it’s the most common thing I hear… and it’s not true! You can write a book. Bill Goss, from Elite Publishing, interviewed me for his Author TV channel. You can watch us here: In this 30-minute interview, I talk about: The [...]

How to give people the claps

“To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.” ~ Victor Hugo  Sorry, Victor Hugo, I don’t agree. I want to thank people personally. I always get sweaty-palm nervous when I’m writing my acknowledgements for my latest book. [...]

The Land Of Do As You Please

Did you ever read The Enchanted Wood and The Magic Faraway Tree books as a kid? I did. Over and over and over again.  I was a bit of a loner child and didn’t have that many friends, so my friends were characters like Moon-Face, Silkie, and The Saucepan Man. I recreated the Magic Faraway Tree in the countryside [...]

Not a shyt sandwich [new podcast]

In this week’s episode of The Business For Superheroes Show podcast,Joe goes on a verbal safari and refuses to let go of the concept of the shit sandwich.   In fact, he creates an artisanal club shit sandwich. Vicky fails to rein him in, and the whole podcast goes downhill from there. Buried in the artisanal bread safari, [...]

What happens when you buy a product or service or training course? Most of the time, you’ll get an email acknowledging your purchase. And that’s it. Sometimes you’ll receive a series of emails welcoming you and thanking you (hopefully) and telling you what to do next. But a few companies go further… and stand out [...]

The great escape…

Do you ever feel like the walls are closing in? Like you’re suffocating under the weight of your to-do list and all your unfinished ideas?  I do, sometimes. I love my home and my office, and I love that I don’t have to go anywhere to do the work… but just occasionally, I’m trapped. It’s [...]
