Little bit of a twist today I thought that I would mix it up and interview myself as a Women Of Wisdom. Vain I know but I do feel I have a lot that I can share with you and I am very wise!! Obviously!
Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
I am Michele Marie Liddle, I am from Norfolk UK. I am a blogger for well this site, and founder of She Steps Up.
2. What is your business about?
She Steps Up Blog is a blogging site where I write about business, mindset, mental health, and parenting advice these are all things that are me! I also include some spiritual stuff as I am a huge believer in energy, crystals and the universe. I also run a feature called “Women Of Wisdom” which I created as I wanted a space that showed off amazing women in business and share them with my community.
I have also set up a new part of She Steps Up which is creating content and transcribing podcasts, and Facebook Lives for female entrepreneurs who maybe do not enjoy the creative writing side of their business or maybe they just want to be free and have time to reach out to their clients more.
3.What made you get into this line of business?
I love writing it is a passion for me and I know from speaking with other women in business that not everyone finds it as enjoyable as I do or as easy. Having done MLM, and Coaching, as well as working with coaches I know how much writing we have to do on a daily business to get ourselves seen and clients in the door. Words have a big impact!
If you don’t find writing easy it creates blocks which can then affect other areas of your business. I also love to support other women in business and I believe that providing this service I can free them up to be more effective in the areas of business they love.
The blog was more of a therapy thing why I decided what avenue to take next, but it has now become my baby.
4.What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
My passion for what I am doing now! I never felt like this with any other business or job I have been in. I love that I am being creative every day and helping others.
I do have a morning power routine that I do every morning! I wake up and do a guided meditation, I then listen to a powerful video or talk on Youtube before my feet even touch the ground. This gets me pumped up and ready for the day.
I will sometimes journal in the morning if not I then go get my coffee and cereal then check my messages. I do believe that the first moments in the morning are what set you up for the rest of the day so I like to make it a positive experience.
5.What is the best advice you have ever been given?
This is a hard one I have been given so much advise over the years, and told others some good advice also. The first thing that comes to mind though is do not ever give up. Now I have quit a lot of things and stopped doing things but this was not me giving up this was me moving on. There is a difference.
I am very aware that I am meant for bigger things and I am meant to help others so if the things I have been doing in the past where not getting me there then I stopped them and moved direction onto a path that was getting me closer towards the place I needed to be.
I believe I am here now so I am not giving up.
6.What is a book you would say everyone must read?
I am going to be doing a post about this soon as I have loads but I will say the book “You Are Amazing” by Sonia Choquette-Tully and Sabrina Choquette-Tully is a must for any female. It is such a good read and I had so many “Ah-Ha” moments when reading it. So go to Amazon now and get a copy you won’t regret it.
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I do, I have just set up all my pricing and packages for my content and transcribing business so I am doing an introductory offer for August 2018 for my Platinum Package which is the all singing, all dancing package. I am giving a massive £2000 discount for a 90 day package!
8.What One thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
This I have to do a lot as I am someone who deals with mental health issues and long-term illness that all have an effect on my mindset. I have found that meditation can very quickly calm me and centre me to put me back on track. I am also a great fan of just removing myself from situations, I will take myself away and just sit and be calm or grab a book. Reading is my number one hobby so reading always takes me away to my happy place.
9.What do you love most about helping others?
I love to help people so much, I have been in situations where no one has helped me and I have been in situations where I have had many people help me so I know how it feels to be on both ends. I love to see other people succeed and achieve their dreams, I love the feeling I get inside from doing something that helps another person. I also think it is a beautiful thing to do as a human and more people should do it. Simple acts of kindness go a long way, you never know that one thing you do that is so easy could be the major thing someone else needed in order to change their life around.
10.Your favourite quote?
This is an easy one and I have it tattooed on my forearm in beautiful vintage mirror “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring” by Marilyn Monroe.
I hope you have wonderful day.
