8 Quotes to live by to help your interior styling business. Podcast Episode 066

8 quotes to live by

I’m a big fan of podcasts – I mean I have one because I get so much out of them and I’ve learnt sooooo much from them that I hope that’s what I bring to the table with the Inside Stylists podcast.

Back to school

This week I discovered a new one. Whenever I want to learn something new I always search out podcasts to listen to on the dog walk. I line them up so I can take it all in and be inspired whilst doing something else. That’s the best thing about podcasts for me! Utilising my time to the MAX!

This week it is goal setting. I always find that come September when the kids go back to school it feels a bit like January – that new year/ new school year sets me off with new directions. Fresh ambition to get stuff done now before the end of the year while the kids aren’t around disrupting my nice quiet house.


Pure motivation

Every time I hear something that rings true there’s always a quote attached that motivates me to move forwards, push through barriers (of which there have been plenty setting up Inside Stylists) and I want to share some of them with you today – along with the people podcasts, books or TED Talk speakers who I got them from. I hope you find them as useful and inspiring as I have.

You are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with – Jim Rohn



If it’s not a hell yeah, it’s a noDerek Sivers – Book – Anything you want 

Use this rule if you’re often over-committed or too scattered.

If you’re not saying “HELL YEAH!” about something, say “no”.

When deciding whether to do something, if you feel anything less than “Wow! That would be amazing! Absolutely! Hell yeah!” — then say “no.”

When you say no to most things, you leave room in your life to really throw yourself completely into that rare thing that makes you say “HELL YEAH!”

Every event you get invited to. Every request to start a new project. If you’re not saying “HELL YEAH!” about it, say “no.”

We’re all busy. We’ve all taken on too much. Saying yes to less is the way out.
