We hope you’ve been enjoying our new podcast. Season 1 is just 6 episodes but we’ve been loving hearing your feedback about it and are already excitedly planning season 2! In episode 4 of the Ditch the Hustle Podcast, we chat with one of our founding Gentle Business Mastermind members Ellen Ronalds-Keene.
The founder of Perk Digital and Self-Care for Teachers, Ellen is an educator, coach, podcaster and entrepreneur. Ellen spent a decade as a teacher before making the shift into the online business world. As well as being an Advanced Credentialed Practitioner of Coaching, Ellen has a Bachelor of Learning Management, and a range of certificates in Digital Marketing.
In this of Feminist Coach Track (FCT) class, award-winning business coach and founder of CEO DNA, Lena West, teaches us how to free ourselves and our businesses from the ‘bro culture’ of business. For too long, we have been socialised to believe that succeeding in business requires acting hardcore and void of feeling. She discusses how we can be free of this and build a coaching business that loves us.
Nicola, Naomi and Amanda all share what a gentle work week looks and feels like for them. This is a juicy conversation about rhythms and cycles, tips and tools, and paying attention to what’s working (and what’s not!) over time.
All three share practical examples of how gentle working weeks have shifted over time, plus Naomi shares how motherhood and having a 9 to 5 government job has presented opportunities and challenges for working gently. Mandy, Nai and Nic discuss their relationships with working weekends and some of the specific systems, operations and tools they use to make life and business gentler.
In the second episode of the Ditch The Hustle podcast, we share an excerpt of our Gentle Business Mastermind guest mentor interview with Staci Jordan Shelton on gaslighting and hustle culture.
In this of Feminist Coach Track (FCT) class, Nicole Lewis-Keeber discussed the subjects of Mental Health, Trauma & Coaching.
Welcome to the first episode of the Ditch the Hustle podcast with your hosts Amanda Rootsey, Nicola Newman and myself. In this episode, we introduce ourselves a little bit and explore what ditching the hustle actually means.
Today, I wanted to tell you about Amanda Rootsey’s Youth Mentor Training program. If you are interested in learning about working with youth, this training aims to give you the confidence to run your own workshops and programs for teens, while building a business you love.
In this third class of Feminist Coach Track (FCT), Desiree Adaway discussed the subjects of Coaching and the ‘isms’ (i.e., racism, sexism, capitalism, anti-semitism, sizeism, etc).
In this vlog, Naomi speaks to her Gentle Business Mastermind collaboration partner Nicola Newman about play, rest and self care as they spend time together on Humpy Island in Central Queensland.
Naomi knows how hard it can be to find the right products, services and people to support you in building your business. It has been a process of trial and error for her these past years.
In order to hopefully help you in avoiding the same ‘errors’ she made, Naomi has created this free list of her recommended programs, experts, resources, software and other useful things that she has used in her online coaching business.
In this second class of Feminist Coach Track, Cameron Airen comprehensively unpacked the subjects of gender, patriarchy and coaching, and invited members to share a way they don’t fit the gender binary.
In this first class of the Feminist Coach Track, I introduced the origins of Feminist Coach Theory, shared and unpacked our definition, briefly defined the key terms (e.g., patriarchy, oppression, power, socialisation, etc), and essentially helped participants understand what Feminist Coach Theory is and how it can be of use in your coaching, business and life.
