A massive thank you to my amazing guests and to you for listening. I will back in the Spring/Summer of 2021 with Season 2 of Speak Female. In the meantime remember: Ambition isn’t a dirty work. And keep speaking female.
Thank you to Natalya Holley who edited this Season. I have been your host, Lucy Grimwade.
Lucy Legal takes the worry and overwhelm out of the legal elements of business and provides simple and affordable support to small businesses and entrepreneurs. Lucy’s clear and concise approach makes ‘the legal stuff’ seem much less daunting and instead of legal being something that you put off tackling, Lucy helps to show entrepreneurs how they can use legal to empower them and the decisions they make in their business. Lucy is thrilled to be joining the Speak Female Podcast to share the details of how she recently took the leap from working in a leading law firm to going full-time in her own business. Lucy touches on the legal documents you need to get in place if you’re looking to start out in business too. Lucy also shares the details of her journey as an entrepreneur to date including the sadness she felt after suffering two miscarriages and the difficulties she faced when sharing that news at work.
The subject of the gender pay gap is nothing new – it has been dominating headlines and holding businesses accountable for the last few years.
Upon research, it is still reported that male employees are still getting paid a significant amount more than their female colleagues. According to the independent: ‘Despite efforts and campaigns by women’s rights groups to close the gap, the results found that the gender pay gap has widened in favour of men in the past year, with 78 per cent of the biggest companies in Britain reporting a gap in favour of men.’
‘The UK’s gender pay gap has barely budged in the year since the government imposed new disclosure rules, raising questions over whether its strategy of naming and shaming employers makes them improve their gender pay balance.’ states the Financial Times.
Eileen Brown joins me where I ask her about her career, ‘blagging it ‘ and how she went from sailing the seas into a career in digital. Eileen has fantastic stories and I can’t wait to have her back for Season 2.
Perhaps you feel a little overwhelmed, from having too many options as to what to do next, or mastered the art of procrastination, not knowing how to get started or you may lack the confidence to take action to achieve your dreams. This tends to happen when there is a misalignment between what you want at the conscious level and the unconscious patterns, beliefs, behaviours, habits and programs that are running in the background.
On the surface, you are saying “I want to do THIS” but underneath, the unconscious mind is doing everything in its power to prevent the “this” from happening.
Mindset coaching will help uncover the beliefs, blocks, behaviours, habits and patterns of thinking that is preventing you from living the life or creating the career you desire.
As a Career & Mindset Coach I am qualified and experience in two neuroscience-based and therapeutic techniques: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
