Episode 8

This week on Between Two Ferns, I lend my charisma in an episode about self-doubt and second guessing.

We’ve all been there! That paralysing fear of failure when you realise you’ve made a mistake. Or that inability to trust in your own value! My tips include listening to the good opinions of other people, and always remember – life is FULL of second chances.

Episode 9

I dish up some great tips this week on creating your action plan for your new career!

We all need to work at getting work. Getting your dream job without actively seeking and preparing is pie-in-the-sky thinking. Don’t sit back and wait! Always respond, and pick up the phone! And remember – it’s not all about you. There are other people in this employment matrix; thinking of others will help your career progression.

Get busy with my career tips now!
