So decide now what you want to achieve and how your business fits into your life.Guest - Gary Parker, Managing Director of Funding and Business Specialists CNT Associates

Keto and Intermittent Fasting Diets Demystified with Karen Roberts Weight Loss Expert

We did have fun in the studio today, Karen Roberts is a good laugh who whilst she certainly knows her stuff about the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting, doesn't take herself or the regime too seriously.Having spent 20 years as a fitness expert, Karen decided to give up the 20 fitness classes she was teaching a week, and starting using her brain instead of her body as a transformation coach. The days spent sitting down instead of jumping around, together with nibbling from the fridge, meant the pounds piled on and before she knew it she was 3 stone overweight.Her journey to shed the weight, and the excess skin, has now led her into a new business as she helps other businesswomen to do the same. Karen shares the facts behind the Keto Diet, and how it can work alongside Intermittent Fasting to not only help you lose weight but free you of the need to always be worrying about where the next food fix is coming from when the brain fog and hangry sets in.Tune in to hear the live recording of the show with host Sian Murphy, Co-host Laura Lawrence and of course Karen Roberts.

However, this advice isn’t just because if your’e passionate about something you’re going to enjoy it more, it’s really about how that passion means you’re going to create a better business.

Sometimes these events are happy, such as the birth of a new baby, and sometimes, when things don’t go as expected, they are not happy events, It can be difficult for friends, relatives and colleagues to say the right thing and then they turn to Caz and her team.We hear Caz talking about how she delivers that customer experience, how she met the challenges of business and her top business tip.We were also joined by Jo Martel who has her own customer service challenge running art workshops for children and adults and who takes her role of helping her clients find their creative side and take their life to a new depth very seriously.Also in the studio was our lovely co-host Laura Lawrence, Jo Wooltorton on the camera as the token man and Kelly Culver tweeting like crazy.

If you're not already using Twitter, tune in to find out how to get started and get traction in your business.However, the real cream off the top of the milk that comes out of this show is Bruce's ideas, resources and insights about how we can work less and produce more. He recommends a couple of books to get take us a little further and of course, we can tune into his podcasts as he interviews the key thought leaders in the field of happiness and work culture. So often as business owners we focus on the busy busy busy activity of inputs and outputs, which can convince us we’re achieving stuff, whilst the real measure of success lies in true outcomes. Giving ourselves permission to take breaks is key to successful business and a happy life, but sometimes it just isn't that easy to switch off. If you would like to get off the hamster wheel of activity so you can do less without feeling guilty then Bruce’s Eat Sleep Rinse Repeat podcasts may give us the hard evidence we need to appreciate how less action alongside focused work is a critical tactic for success.
