Most of us are well into last minute preparations for the holidays- no matter which ones you celebrate. We’re also trying run a business — which is why I’ve kept this one short and sweet. So for my final episode for 2014 I want to share a lesson I recently learned that may help take the pressure off yourself. I’ll be back in January with another year of Bolder Business tips and expert guests. In the meantime let me wish everyone an extraordinary 2015. Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress. —  Charles Kettering Contact Aprille BolderBusinessPodcast@gmail.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/AprilleJanes LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aprillejanes Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheProfitFormula Google+:...

075 Capability, Confidence and Trust

http://traffic.libsyn.com/bolderbusinesswomen/075_Aprille_Janes_Podcast.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadI’ve been talking a lot about showing up as a real human being. About sharing your challenges and being open to relationship. But what about your skills and the solution you offer? Where does that fit in? Good question. Up to this point I’ve been discussing the “Character” half of the Trust equation. In this episode let’s talk about the other half – your capabilities. TIPS To Improve Your Results Want to improve your results? Take responsibility for them. Expect to win Finish strong. Year End Review of Your Capabilities What do I have that makes me credible and inspires the trust of those I want to do business with?

What is changing in the marketplace that affects the relevance of what I offer? What skills will I need in the future? Which ones play to my strengths? What ones should I hire for? What’s my attitude toward improving and growing? Am I willing to invest in my own capabilities?   QUOTE “The quickest way to increase trust is to demonstrate a behaviour of competence.” Stephen. M.R.

073 You, Inc – Part 2

http://traffic.libsyn.com/bolderbusinesswomen/073_Aprille_Janes_and_Doug_Foresta_Podcast.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download“You Inc.” How to Use the “Power of You” to Stand Out, Connect With Your Ideal Tribe and Get Your Message Out In a Big Way Welcome back to Part 2 of my interview episode with Doug Foresta. (Missed Part 1? Click here to get it now.) Doug interviewed me for his program Stand Out and Be Heard. There was so much great information shared that he kindly gave me permission to use it on this show as well. A personal brand goes way beyond signature colours and an eye-catching logo. It’s about being human. It’s also that know, like and trust factor. But what does that mean exactly? Listen in to our conversation and find out! 3 Tips Stop thinking ‘failure’. It’s un-success, waiting to be transformed into success. Share your challenges and what you learned. We can’t relate to someone living on a pedestal. Control the conversation. Decide what you want people to say about you in your business and then give them something to talk about. Quote “The real gift of failure is how it connects us as people with a shared experience and not some cold statue living on a pedestal.” Aprille Janes Book THE RISE The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery   Contact Aprille BolderBusinessPodcast@gmail.com Hello@AprilleJanes.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/AprilleJanes LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aprillejanes Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheProfitFormula Google+:...
