Many health experts, entrepreneurs and successful Ceo’s highly recommend a structured early start to your day. A morning routine is very important for productivity and performance throughout the day. Here are a few of my tips on how you can be more productive in the morning and get more done:

Don’t Check Your Phone: When you wake up in the morning do not check your phone for the first hour ; so that means no emails, no texts, no social media or even your voice mail. Do not let your smart phone control your morning.

Hydrate: Ditch the caffeine first thing in the morning and start your morning by drinking a large glass of water. This is a great way to start your day. Water intake is very important for health in general. I recommend drinking water with added fresh lemon, this naturally speeds up your metabolism and makes a very refreshing, healthy drink. Drinking water will help you feel energised, refreshed, help relieve headaches and curb your appetite. 

Start Moving: Exercise first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day. It can help you to kick start your day and get you psyched up for the day ahead. The endorphins that are released during exercise will leave you feeling in an amazing mood. When exercising in the morning I recommend you allow yourself more time to warm up before you commence your workout.

Meditation: I highly recommend you start your day with 5 or 10 minutes of meditation. Sit in silence and quieten your mind. There are lots of Guided meditation online resources and apps available to get you started. Studies show that meditation can help combat stress, anxiety and depression. Experts recommend to start each morning with meditation, ideally before eating breakfast. 

Set Goals: Plan and prepare your day. Be sure to have a set planned schedule of your day. Ideally this should be planned in advance or the evening before. Spend a few minutes in the morning familiarizing yourself with the plan and schedule of your day. A set calendar or diary will help you be more productive and get more done with your day.

Eat Breakfast: Breakfast provides your body with energy to start the day and breakfast is linked to many health benefits; including weight control and improved performance. Having the right breakfast foods can help you concentrate, give you strength and even help you maintain a healthy weight. Studies show that breakfast eaters tend to weigh less than those who skip breakfast. This could be due to the fact that eating a healthy breakfast can help reduce hunger throughout the day, reducing snacking, controlling cravings and help with making better food choices with other meals.


It is important to be mindful of how you start your morning. Often our morning thoughts , behavour and rituals will shape our entire day. Limit rants and negative vibes. Awake with a clear positive outlook. Remind yourself how fortunate you are to have the gift of a new day. Make everyday count. Make it a great day – everyday! 🙂

Leadership skills are important if you are managing a team, running a business or even teaching a class. Some people are born leaders and have a way of inspiring, motivating and leading others. For most leadership is not a natural trait and are not born leaders. However, these skills can be developed, learned and practiced. The most crucial thing is that you are passionate, driven and willing to work at it.

So how can you become a great leader and win the trust and respect of your team? Here are some of my tips on how to become a better leader today:

Act like a leader: Be respectful with everyone you meet. Be confident, self-assured and speak to others as you want to be spoken to and remember to listen. Staff want to look up to their leader so it is important that you, as a leader must set out the desired tone, values and culture from the start.  


Manage your Emotions: 
Emotions are really important and have a direct link to your energy. So what does that mean? Well, if you as a leader are at an emotional low then your energy is low. If you are running high, you feel positive and optimistic. To be at your best as a leader learn to manage your emotions.

Develop your skills: If you do not have the skills to lead, no title or position will ever make you into the leader you want to be. There is only one way to become a better leader and that is to work on your leadership skills. Develop expertise in your field, and discover the heart of what leadership is about for you.


Become a great Communicator: 
A great leader is always a skilled communicator, not only as a speaker but also a listener. Discipline yourself to understand what is happening around you by observing, focusing and listening.

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” ― Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

Be Decisive: Being indecisive can undermine confidence and trust. Leaders must lead, take a chance and make a decision based on the facts to hand. This is the core skill of any successful leader. Playing it safe is never a good business rule and leaders must make sure their business stays ahead by acting quickly on new ideas, innovations and taking risks.

Invest in People: A huge element of great leadership is knowing how to connect with the right kind of people and learning how to spot talent. To be a great leader you also need to start at the heart of what matters in your organisation – and what matters is your people. If you want to see them happy, engaged, loyal and dedicated make the time to invest in them, nurture them and provide them with a clear vision of what needs to be done.

Be a Mentor: One of the roles of a leader is to mentor your team and guide and support them, not preach to them or boss them.  People are interested in growth and development and they want to know how they can do better, grow and find their own path. Be sure to give credit and praise openly where it is due. Let others know when the work is well done, a job is completed with excellence and the results are great. 


Have Fun: 
Business may be serious, but the best leaders know how to build excitement and fun. They are great at creating an optimistic culture and an enthusiastic environment. They know fun is important when people are working hard. Be passionate, enthusiastic and proud – practice what you preach.

People spend a large part of their lives at work and having a leader who is genuinely excited about the future of the company is hugely motivating and extremely inspiring.

In this article I discuss how to use video effectively to promote and build your Personal Training and Fitness Business.

YouTube is the second largest search engine on the web and video content marketing is on the rise. Video can help you attract more clients and grow your group exercise and personal training business. People spend a lot of time watching videos.

Video can create stronger emotional connections, increase engagement and capture attention more quickly than any other traditional content medium. To get started you do not need any fancy equipment. I recommend you use your smart phone camera and natural daylight. Before you film your first video it is essential you have a video content strategy in place. 

Here are my top Tips to get started with Video on YouTube

Channel Name:
If you are a Personal Trainer or group exercise Instructor and have a very specific niche then your channel name should reflect this. It should be clear what your business and brand is. However, if you plan to share content on a variety of topics and subjects such as vlogs or maybe fashion reviews, make-up tutorials etc than I highly recommend you to use your own name for your channel. Having the channel under your name gives you more flexibility if you plan to grow your business and brand.


Branding: 
You want to make a good first impression when someone visits your YouTube channel so they are compelled to subscribe. Your channel header should include your fitness business logo and a brief description of what video content you will be sharing, how often and when. Add your website and social media links and fill in a short description in the ‘About’ section on your YouTube channel. Be sure to include a short video intro-trailer of what your channel is about. Create your brand custom thumbnails that help you stand out. Brand consistency is important, so use a great avatar photo and keep this consistent with all your other social media platforms. To create designs I recommend the design tool Canva [www.canva.com


Content Creation:
Create video content that servers and offers value to your clients and audience. Research what questions you get asked a lot and answer these in your videos. I recommend creating shorter videos to start off with. You want visitors to watch your video to the end so I recommend you create videos that are 3- 6 minutes. NOTE: YouTube favours watch time and engagement for ranking your videos. Therefore, you want your audience to watch all your video. Research your keywords and tags to optimise your content. I recommend the free browser extension tool TubeBuddy [www.tubebuddy.com]


Promote Your Content: 
Content distribution is key to get your videos seen. Promote your videos on your social media platforms. Share your videos thumbnails and short video trailers in your blog, newsletter and to your email list. Be consistent with this, as this will help to grow your channel and build an audience on YouTube. Engagement is also important, so be sure to reply back to comments and questions. Engagement will help build relationships and the know, like and trust factor. This will help to grow your channel. You can schedule and automate your YouTube videos and posts on social media using a social media management platform tool such as Hootsuite [www.hootsuite.com


Here are 10 ideas for video content:  


► Tutorials. 

► Vlogs.

► Client testimonials.

► Exercise demos and insights.

► Collaborations.

► Interviews. 

► Product reviews.

► Motivational videos.

► Recipes / nutrition advice.

► Industry news and trends. 

Video is a great way to grow your fitness business and brand and also help to increase more organic traffic to your website. Therefore, it makes sense not to ignore video as part of your content marketing plan.

Using social media for business can be overwhelming especially if you are new to the social media world. There are a number of reasons why businesses and brands fail with their social media marketing. Some of the top mistakes include not providing value and always pitching and pushy sales.


Here Are The Top 5 Mistakes To Avoid On Social Media 

1) Lack of Offering Value: 
I see new businesses and brands focusing solely on selling rather than serving their customers and audience. Flip this over: offer lots of value, over deliver and go that extra mile. Focus on building relationships with your customers and followers. Be more customer focused. Don’t forget about that ‘Know, Like and Trust’ factor that grows an audience, builds trust and valuable lasting relationships.


2) Pitching and Sales:
Continuously selling can drive your audience and potential customers away. There is so much noise on most of the social media platforms today, do not add to it. The ‘buy my sh*t’ approach is a turn off! You also need to be careful you do not come across as spamming. Learn to sell without selling. There is a right and proven way of doing this. I will share in a future article and video.


3) Lack of Engagement:
Not spending any time or not making it a priority to engage with your audience or costumers is a common mistake. I understand we are all super busy or in the case of a high profile individual it is hard to reply back to everyone. However, I suggest have a system in place to deal with this. Outsource to a social media company or delegate to an assistant. It is good practice and manners to reply back. Imagine if you met a person in the real world and you ignored the question they asked. It’s not cool or professional to ignore others.


4) Not being focused:
Are you to zoned into what your competitors are doing? I have been guilty of this in the past too. I am not suggesting it is not important to know what your competitors are doing – it is actually important to know what is going on in your industry. However, if you are spending more time on checking them out on social media and not on your own business, then let me remind you my friend that you are wasting valuable time. You need to stop doing that today! 


5) No Consistency and No Patience:
 
This is very common, I see it all the time. You go for it, posting content on all social media platforms and it is all systems go and..wow.. there is just no stopping you! You’re like a social media powerhouse…. but then BANG you STOP! …tumbleweed moment….you’re gone!…vanished!…disappear!…for a few weeks or even a few months! I get it, your patience has ran out and you can’t be bothered because you are not seeing any results. Write this down ☛ “All the best things in life take time. Employ patience and love the process.”


BONUS TIP: Don’t Be Driven by Your Ego:  It’s a big mistake when you are driven by your ego and not committed to serving others. I recommend you leave your ego at the door my friend…we haven’t got time for that! Stop spending time bullsh*ting on all platforms and believing your own hype. Spend less valuable time on impressing your competitors. Start focusing and channeling your energy into taking action in growing your business and serving your customers and audience.

Social media is all about being ‘social’ yet many people struggle with how to engage on social media and online. Engagement on social media is crucial to build an audience, grow your brand or reach customers, clients and prospects. Here are 5 tips on how to engage on social media. 


Be Authentic :
Having a personality and being authentic online is important. Do not be fake. People relate to people. Create content that is unique content for you and your brand. Rather than just retweeting from other websites share your opinions; i.e on articles, what’s current or in you Industry.


Build Relationships :
Interacting, building relationships with others online is a great way to gain attention for your brand or product. Search for people who are engaging with you and your brand. Be sure to respond to others – by tweeting back or messaging back. It is also important to respond back to all bad and negative engagement too – if related to your brand and products.    


Promote Content :
Promote content that is not just about your products or making sales. Share blogs and content on social media that is appealing to others, where you are helping others with problems and offering solutions.


Be Consistent : Consistency is important to build audience engagement on social media. Schedule posts when you can’t post i.e after hours when you finish work. Use tools like Buffer, Hootsuite. Keep track of the engagement to see what works at what times.  

 

Create Competitions, Giveaways, Polls and Discounts : Creating polls, competitions will create engagement and can help to build an audience and reach more costumers. i.e Asking people to retweet a post or tag a friend in an Instagram post, as part of a give- a- way will reach a wider audience. 


Never Spam : It is really crucial you do not spam on social media. Do not be repetitive with posting same content over and over again. Also do not spam others inboxes. It is not cool – and will turn people off! If you are unsure check the terms & conditions and rules of each social media platform.

Most of us rely on our smart phones and research shows we spend an average of 7 to 8 hours daily on our phones, technology and digital devices. Over usage can lead to some of us feeling exhausted or struggling with burnout.

I highly recommend everyone takes time out to unplug from digital media. A great place to start with a digital media detox is to ‘unplug’ for a day or two every week. Keep a journal on what you accomplish that day; make a note on how your feel, your mood, energy, sleep and productivity levels.

Disconnect from social media and win back time, communication, relationships and control. Reconnect with life! In this article I share some of my tips on how you can do a digital media detox.


Do Not Check In:
When you wake up in the morning do not check your phone for the first hour. So that means no emails, no texts, no social media or even your voice mail. Do not let your smart phone control your morning. Use the first hour to set goals for the day, or try meditation or workout. This does take great discipline and self control but will become a habit over time. I urge you to try it as this one habit has changed my life. It is very powerful! 

Switch Off:
As mentioned above, I recommend not checking your smart phone a hour on awakening, I also highly recommend you do not check your phone a hour before you go to sleep. Exposure to digital devices to close to bedtime can often effect the quality of our sleep.

Do not look at social media and waste your time endlessly and mindlessly scrolling. Instead have a sleep ritual or routine in place; read a book, or have a warm bath, meditate etc. Do anything that does not involve checking a digital device, technology or viewing a digital screen.   


Schedule: 
On your selected digital detox day/s be sure to set up an email autoresponder, so you can let people know you are unable to reply back and will get back to them soon – but do not commit on replying back straight away. The other option is to direct your email to someone else you trust and can take responsibility on your behalf.

You can also schedule and plan your social media posts using a scheduling tool. There are lots of great autoresponder tools available. Scheduling and planning in advance will keep all your social media platforms active while you take time out on your digital media detox.



“There is no Wi-Fi in the forest, but I promise you’ll find a better connection.”

Reconnect with Life:
This is really important for our wellbeing. Spend time reading a ‘real’ book or go to a coffee shop, catch up with conversations with your friends and family – offline. When you go to a restaurant or at meal time put your smart phone out of reach and do not look at your phone. Engage in conversations and be present in the moment.

Do something to reconnect with the world. Go for walks, be one with nature, enjoy your surroundings and lose yourself in your thoughts and imagination. It is essential to take a break from digital media and give yourself an opportunity to reconnect with life.

We all have a personal brand, whether you know it or not. A personal brand is about sharing your body of work, your authenticity and your story. It is about building a brand around yourself. It’s a great way to help you stand out from the crowd and can help you build up your influence. A strong personal brand can help grow your business, credibility and reputation. Here are my 4 tips on how to build a personal brand online. 


Value:
Define who you are, your purpose, what you do, why it matters and why people should care and connect with you. Be sure to understand the market you want to target. Who are your potential clients , customers and audience? Personal branding is not about making sales it is about adding value to others, serving and helping your target audience or niche with their problems. Strive to offer solutions and amazing value. This is important and is the foundation of your brand. 



Be Yourself:
You are the most important part of your brand. Be original, authentic and keep it real. Do not be a copy of someone else, because it will show. Be professional and personable on all social media platforms. Show both sides of you when posting updates, mix it up and keep it balanced.


Have a Good Bio:
Have a good bio on all your social media platforms. This ensures people who go on your social media platforms will know who you are instantly, what you do, and why it matters.  Keep consistent with your brand images, logos, fonts and message.


Be Engaging:
Be engaging, talk to people who like your content and those who leave comments. This will help build trust and the ‘like’ factor. It is all about keeping it ‘human’ and about personal connect. People like to spend money with people they like. It is not about how many likes, followers, subscribers you have. It is also very important you handle any negative comments and feedback in a professional manner. Always be a dedicated professional.


Consistency:
Your logos, font, colours etc are important visuals for your brand. In reference to your personal brand be consistent with what you do online and offline. Does what you do with your personal life connect with the services you offer i.e If you are a health and fitness coach and have pictures on Instagram consistently showing you eating unhealthy will definitely not help your personal brand.  


“It’s important to build a personal brand because it’s the only thing you’re going to have.Your reputation online, and in the new business world is pretty much the game, so you’ve got to be a good person. You can’t hide anything, and more importantly, you’ve got to be out there at some level.” – Gary Vaynerchuk


To summarise; everyone can develop a strong personal brand and it can accelerate your business growth in many ways. Building a personal brand will take time, patience and effort. If you are thinking of developing yours then the perfect time to start is now.

We all know that social media is great for business, to build a brand, connect with friends and to follow the things and people we are interested in. However, we also know that social media has a negative side. If you are trying to grow a personal brand, online, you will come across some people who will attack you and may even troll you. We often refer to these people as haters. Below are some tips on how to cope with negative comments and haters.


Here are my 3 Tips on how you to deal With Haters

(1) Do Not Take It Personally:
Just because someone does not agree with you, or doesn’t like the way you do things or like the things you put out doesn’t make them a hater. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If they attack you online personally the best action to take is to ignore them and delete the comment. Do not react to them. 


(2) Be Okay With The Fact That They Don’t Like You: 
Someone may not like what you produce, they may disagree with you, maybe they criticise your style. It’s not that big of a deal what someone thinks of you unless you focus on it. Do not focus on the negativity.

  

(3) Create Focus That Serves You:

By focusing on something that can’t change you are depleting yourself of valuable energy, time and the opportunity to be your true self. If you are trying to make everyone else happy the only thing you will succeed at is making yourself miserable. It is an impossible task.  


BONUS TIP: Focus On The People Who Love You: 

Always remind yourself that there are plenty of people who love you. If you want to live a life of purpose and share your message, then be confident and continue to share your passion and your message. Always come from a place of confidence and self believe.

Most of us struggle at some point in our life with being consistent. It is something that is worth working on, because the rewards of being consistent are huge. If you want to achieve anything of value and meaning in your life – in your professional or personal life, then you need to be consistent. Consistency is the key to success, no matter what you are doing.  


Here are my 4 Tips on how you can be more Consistent:


(1) Know You ‘Why’:

In order to stay connected you need a clear vision on why you are doing what you are, for example you maybe saving money – it could be for a new house or a dream holiday. Be clear on your ‘why’ and this will help you stay focused and consistent.


(2) Pick One Thing:
As human beings we have limited capacity when it comes to discipline and willpower. I recommend you pick one thing and once that becomes a habit then add something else, rather than overwhelm yourself with too many commitments. Taking on too much could result in you completing nothing!  


(3) Plan , Prepare And Schedule:
When you are trying to make something consistent in your life you want to build your whole life around it, rather than fit it in. Being organised is important. Schedule, plan and prepare, this way you will get it done.


(4) Ignore Your Feelings:
I don’t often say ignore your feelings but when it comes to building or developing consistency in your life it is important to ignore all the negative voices in your head; those voices of self-doubt, negative self-talk or the voices telling you to give up. Know the power of consistency. 


BONUS TIP: It’s Okay To Go Off Track:

Do not have an ‘all or nothing mind-set’ for example, do not worry if you miss that one day from training in the gym or a work commitment. It is okay to go off track occasionally. The most important thing is to not give up – get back on it and keep going!

In this week’s episode of my show on Dal TV I share a few of my tips on how you can boost your body confidence and body image.

In my 20 year career, as a women’s health and well-being coach I have come across many women who are unhappy with themselves and their body image. I know this is also becoming increasingly common for men too. In my video I share a few of my tips that will help you boost your body confidence and body image – and how you can feel good about yourself. 

Here are my 4 Tips on how you can boost your body confidence and image:

(1) Become More Self- Aware:
Become more aware of your feelings and how you feel about yourself. Recognize negative self-talk and be more connected with your inner self rather than focusing on your outer self.

(2) Recognize The Deeper Story:
Get to the root cause of why you are unhappy with the way you look. Is it something that happened in your past that has lead to you feeling in such a way? Dig deep inside and understand where it all started.

(3) Change The Conversations You Have With Yourself:
The way you look and your body does not define your value. What you are saying to yourself is going to affect you. Everyone has negative thoughts but recognize what you think about yourself is hurtful and not the truth. Switch your thoughts and adopt a new positive thought pattern. Do this often and it will become a habit.

(4) Focus On Your Greatness!
When looking in the mirror do not zone into what you believe to be your flaws and imperfections. Look at all your great points. You have plenty. Remember – your value is not determined by your body fat or the number on the scale. Your value is what is inside you, your personality, your character, how you treat people and so much more.


BONUS TIP: Do Not Focus On The Images On Social Media:
Do the images on social media make you feel like a failure or question the way you look? i.e images on Instagram? If yes, then do not follow these accounts that make you question your self-worth. Most of these beautiful bodies on Instagram are not what they seem and often these are Photoshopped or enhanced. What you see on social media is not always the truth or the full story.

NO is a powerful word that will save you a lot of wasted time, stress and more. When it’s time to say no, avoid phrases such as “I don’t think I can” or “I’m not certain.” Saying no to a new commitment honours your existing commitments and gives you the opportunity to successfully fulfil them.

We need to learn the slow ‘yes’ and the quick ‘no.” – Tom Friel, former Ceo of Heidrick & Struggles.

Research conducted at the University of California in San Francisco showed that the more difficulty that you have saying no, the more likely you are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression.  Learn to use the word no, and it will lift your mood as well as your productivity. [References from Forbes Women: #leadership]

Many of us can feel guilty saying no to others. Lets face it, it can be uncomfortable and we fear people will judge or dislike us. In the past I have taken on projects and commitments that I wished I hadn’t because I couldn’t say no. In all honesty I don ‘t like to let people down and immediately afterwards I have regrets to committing.


Daily I receive a high volume of requests, proposals and collaboration opportunities via various communication channels and my social media platforms . My assistant often will go through these and flag the ones of real possible interest and say “no” to the rest. I do, however like to personally reply back to some of the messages I receive on my social media platforms. I focus on saying “no” more often and understand I have to prioritise and can not say “yes” to all.

Be selective with your time and energy. I have trained myself to understand that my first priority is me. I understand saying “yes” to everything will result in me being stressed and frustrated. Those added commitments can also mean precious time away from family and close friends. It can also mean less time for me to do more fun things or resting and just simply time to do nothing. I have embraced a new thought pattern and no longer associate the word “no” with feeling guilt or selfish.

Get better at saying NO.

Health. Happiness. Success

Today I wanted to share some of the reasons I believe businesses and brands fail with their social media marketing. Have a read and let me know if you have spotted these or maybe you are guilty of the following too…


(1) Lack of offering value to potential customers.
I see new businesses and brands focusing solely on selling rather than serving the customer and audience. (see point number 2 below) Flip this over: offer lots of value and focus on building relationships first.

Be customer focused. Don’t forget about the “Know, Like, and Trust” factor that grows an audience and builds valuable, lasting relationships.


(2) Heavy with pitching and sales.
This drives me insane and does also happen a lot on Linked in and facebook. There is so much noise on most of the social media platforms today. Don’t add to it and lets be honest no one likes to be sold to. You also need to be careful you don’t come across as ‘spamming’ . Learn to sell without selling. Their is a right way of doing this. (I will share more on this in another post).


(3) Engage with your audience.
Not spending any time engaging with your audience is a common mistake. However, I understand if you are super busy or a high profile individual it is hard to reply back to everyone. I suggest have a system or a strategy in place to deal with this.

My assistant helps me filter the messages I receive on some of my social media platforms. It’s good practice (and manners) to reply back to genuine inquires and messages.


(4) Are you too zoned into what your competitors are doing?
I have been guilty of this in the past too. I am not suggesting it is not important to know what your competitors are doing but if you are spending more time on checking them out on facebook, twitter, linked in etc and not on your own business than you are wasting valuable time.

Write this down…. 

“What you focus on grows. What you resist persists”

(5) No consistency and No patience.

This is common, I see it all the time. You go for it, posting content on all social media platforms and it’s all systems go and there isn’t no stopping you. You’re like a social media powerhouse….you’re on fire dude! But then BANG you STOP! …tumbleweed moment….you’re gone…vanish…disappear.. for a few weeks or even a few months!

(WTF is that all about!?)

Your patience has ran out and you’re thinking f**k that ..you can’t be bothered because you’re seeing no ROI. Come on you know all the best things in life take time. Employ patience and love the process.

Write this down…


 “The strongest of all warriors are these two – Time and Patience”


This is very common in the health and fitness industry in particular. Leave your ego at the door my friend…we haven’t got time for that! Stop spending time bullsh*ting on all platforms and believing your own hype. Start focusing and channeling your energy into taking action in growing your business and serving your customers/ audience. Spend less valuable time on impressing your competitors.


So as you can see this social media marketing thingymajiggy is bloody hard work! I do understand not every enjoys it. Therefore, I suggest outsource and delegate to someone who does, like me 😉 If you are a small business and budget is tight then start off doing it yourself.


How are you getting on with your social media marketing?
