050: Lessons from business

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

In this episode, I take you behind the curtain to reflect on the lessons I have learnt from three years in business and 50 podcast episodes. Over the three years, I have had the pleasure of working with 20 schools on strategy and have worked with numerous fundraisers on implementing strategy into their day-to-day work.

I thought I would take this opportunity to share the top five lessons I have learnt from building my business, which I now use to help my clients.

Here's a sneak peek of the lessons I discuss in this episode:

1. Share your passion

2. It's also a numbers game

3. You can't do it alone

4. Use technology

5. A daily practice of focussing on priorities

I also dive into how you as school leaders can learn from these lessons too, and apply them to many aspects of your strategy.
