Keeping Good Company
Two business besties, Karly Nimmo and Lisa Corduff, exploring what it takes to create, grow and keep good company.
Keeping Good Company - Join two business besties, Karly Nimmo and Lisa Corduff, while they explore what it takes to create, grow and keep good company. In this day and age, when the barrier to entry for entrepreneurs is so low... while people can create a brand for themselves with nothing more than internet access and youtube tutorials, and the amount of noise in the online space is so high... what is it that sets those who make it apart from those that don't? Lisa and Karly intend to find out. Interviews with people who are really rocking at this business game, and personal deep dives into their own journeys through life and business, together. Real. Open. Honest. Raw. No BS.
Off the back of a call for Keeping Video Real with Samantha Nolan-Smith (who featured on episode no.9) Lisa asks the question Sam offered the KVR peeps a few poignant questions:
- What is our interpretation of how our parents saw us?
- How did our friends see us?
- What did we take that to mean?
- What is the energy of those words?
Both questions provide Lisa and Karly with massive insights into who they are and how they've been limiting themselves based on old childhood programs.
2:03 - Lisa explores how her friends and parents might have described her and makes a big discovery about what she has made that mean.
7:30 - Karly explores her history and how it's expresses itself in her business.
9:50 - 'Tell me about your childhood' might not just be from a 90s sitcom, or Dr Phil show.
13:20 - Karly and Lisa explore their differences: Lisa with her people pleasing and need to achieve. And Karly realises how she's been running an unconscious program of setting a low bar.
19:45 - The importance of personal development and the ways Karly and Lisa have been lead to doing 'the work'.
26:00 - The Takeaways from todays conversation.
