The long awaited guest appearance from my other half- my husband Michael! This episode was both fun and odd to record- mainly because we rarely sit just the two of us to discuss my work and the effect it has on our family. Here is a cool reflection on what it's like to be the parter of a creative and how we made life work through the dark times like when I miscarried at 14 weeks or when Mike applied for a promotion and it didn't work out. Enjoy and thanks for listening.

When to increase your prices.
6:59Recently I had a troll on my Facebook who questioned the pricing I had on an abstract work of art. Another troll followed under it asking how many I had sold. I wanted to reply and say I had sold three the previous week but I knew it would get me nowhere. Instead I worked hard on letting it float over me… after a sleepless night over thinking the price of my work which I know deep down is the right price or should even be higher. In this episode we discuss how to detect when you are pricing too low and when it is time to change. Thanks for listening.

Routine for the win.
7:30I listened to Joe Wicks on Ron Chatterbys podcast once and when asked if he ever goes off piste and doesn’t exercise, or if he eats junk food Joe explained- he asked us, the audience listening, to think of how we feel when we have a good day. What we eat, what we start the say with, etc. This helped me reinforce my own need for routine and especially in the morning, in order to thrive. I am not always consistent but when I am everything can be dealt with alongside less drama and more intention and focus. Thanks for listening.

The crucifixion of perfectionism
6:33At times we use the term “ perfectionist” to describe ourselves when sometimes that is not the case. It can be that we are crippled by the expectation of others so we strive for praise or to feel accepted. Perfectionism can be broken down and in this episode I do that with building a creative business in mind. Settle your mind and watch your productivity grow. Thanks for listening.

Friends School GCSE Prize Day Speech

Enjoy and please share with any teenagers in your home . Thanks for listening. For more podcasts head over to my YouTube channel or check out my website www.alyharte.com
Only you can get you to the next level!
7:37YOU are the one who will get you to where you need to be in life and in business.

Join me as I chat with Joanne from Skinn Therapy
47:06This discussion is not just about skin. It runs deeper as we discuss wellness on the whole, kids as they navigate a social media world of perfection. The changes in the skin industry and why Joanne wants to know each person and the gaps in their lives where she can use her holistic and wellness centred approach to help. I used to be pretty enthused by beauty which I imagine will surprise some of you. However, that changed when I met Joanne of Skinn Therapy. Her professional approach is what has guided me to take better care of my skin, inside and out. Along with Samantha King who you can listen to if you scroll back through two series ago, I feel like I have been educated. Enjoy this episode. Thanks for listening.

Join me as I chat with Shrink Coach - Estelle Wallace
39:38Five years ago Estelle Wallace and I trained together at her previous gym. At the time I had a fitness account alongside my wellbeing blog (which you can still see linked to my website) and had a ball with Estelle in her natural habitat. We also both share a love for Jesus. Estelle is a fitness trainer and her business Shrink coach is fascinating. She is an inspiration as she shares about growing her online presence through the pandemic with free YouTube workouts for all levels and abilities. She is so full of life and is deeply rooted in faith. Her gentle wisdom will see you through today and remind you that you can start anywhere and start now with changing your life physically and emotionally. Thanks for listening.

Join me as I chat with Brahm Gallagher -PT and lead trainer Bayburn Fitness
44:19I met Brahm Gallagher through Bayburn fitness where I currently train five days a week. He is a personal trainer and from the first training session I knew he was great fun and openly passionate about the role he plays in people's lives and wellbeing. Here we discuss Brahm’s career in the army, his move from LA to Northern Ireland and how we can show our kids by example, the best way to eat and live and move. I feel like every trainer should practice what they preach and it is evident that Brahm does just that!

Kirsty Elwood- holistic therapist and reflexologist.
58:36To give full disclosure on this chat- I cried after we ended the recording. Kirsty shared thoughts about life and how we all carry wounds which we can mask- so much so that I felt like she was speaking to my soul and the tears flowed! Kirsty unravels what reflexology is and how what we have on the top of our foot is what we show the world. Underneath on the sole of our foot is where reflexology can discover many physical and emotional elements of our character and bodies. An insightful and emotive discussion.

Join me as I chat to Suzanne from Authentic Yoga
35:40Suzanne is a primary school teacher turned yoga instructor and has the most gentle aura. You can sense this through the airwaves and the video of zoom during our interview. She explains the need for community (online and offline) as well as taking self-care to a deeper level than ticking off a workout routine or bubble baths. Your health is here and now! I have collaborated with Suzanne in the past for a children's workshop involving yoga and art. Suzanne also joined me for a 1:1 class a few years ago and she opens up about her heart defect and the way creativity helped her to manage high levels of stress. So much so that she followed her gut and the direction of her life evolved into Authentic Yoga by Suzanne. Enjoy this episode.
