Four Badass Strategies For Changing Your Perspective And Improving Your Results
Number one is learning to gain a new perspective on life and on business. If you’re going to be thinking just like everybody else, you’re going to get the same results just like everybody else. Right? And that’s what you want to push away from.
The second is learning that everybody, you yourself, have choices. If you’re not happy where you are right now, then go ahead and make that change. But that choice is entirely yours, 100%.
Thirdly, you got to make sure that you look after yourself. Right? Look after number one first, before you serve anyone else. You won’t be able to do that or look after your family or your clients or anyone else in the world unless you take care of number one.
And the final key point that I have here for you all. And I’ve mentioned this, right at the end of this episode, is learning the reasons why some people make $100 in a day, and why others make 1000s of dollars in a day. And you will find out the strategies for doing that at the end of this episode. So make sure you keep on watching or listening.

Welcome and Introduction. Welcome to the BadassPreneurs Business School Podcast. If you are a life or health coach, or wellness practitioner, or a healer, stick around, because I share the inside scoop on running a thriving soul-satisfying online coaching practice.
Kay, welcome and thank you for being here.
Oh, god, thank you for having me on your show. I have been looking forward to this for a long time now.
Yeah, yeah, we had some some some trouble finding each other on our schedule. So Kay, we had a quick glimpse on what do you do for a living? And I like to ask my guests this, you know, just take a minute and give us a glimpse into your personal life.
A Glimpse Into Kay’s Personal Life 2:51
My personal life?
Oh, gosh. So I actually and not a lot of people know this. I’m actually a carer for my parents. Yes, so I am, I have actually moved back home to London, UK with my parents, because my mom has rheumatoid arthritis, which means that she isn’t very mobile, and my dad has a heart condition. And so I’ve come back home to take care of them, make sure they’re okay. And we’re actually putting in place strategies for both of them. So they can actually feel a little bit more independent, which they’re not feeling at the moment.
And I know, as we get older, you know, we all we all like our independence. And as you get older, you feel like you’re going to rely on more and more people, you know, it’s very uncomfortable. And so we’re just putting strategies and planning things and putting things in place to make them feel a little bit independent, but also letting them know that it’s okay for me and my brother to help you, you know, is come to that stage where we do have to help them out. And it’s okay, it happens.
So that’s what I’m doing at home as well as building my business. Right. And it’s totally possible. Anyone that tells me, you know, they can’t do it, because they’ve got family commitments, they’ve got kids, you know, they have a husband and all this kind of stuff. It totally can happen. But you do have to plan you do have to strategize, and you got to be able to prioritize as well.
Kay’s Superpower 4:25
Just love that. And I love you’re sharing that with us, especially as you know, our crowd are health and wellness coaches. So you know, I think they have a lot of empathy with what you’re going through. I’m going to ask a different question, what is your superpower? And how do you use it to serve your clients?
So my superpower is being able to have a different perspective. Right? And what I mean by that is, there have been so many different obstacles. I’ve had so many health issues. While I’ve been on my journey to finding, you know what my passion is about what I do, what kind of business I want to build.
And through having these health issues and other obstacles that have come in my way, I’ve realized that, you know, life isn’t doing it to you, its doing it for you. And when these obstacles do come about it’s because it’s trying to, the universe is trying to redirect you onto the path that you should be on. And sometimes these paths that you’re on, is great for the meantime, because there’s always lessons to be learned, when that lesson has been learned. And it’s time for you to move on, there’s always going to be a spanner thrown at you to redirect you on to the next lesson.
Never Judge A Book By It’s Cover 5:48
Absolutely love that. I love that. Your favourite quote, is never judge a book by its cover. Tell me about that.
So that is a book that I’ve written. And the reason why I gave it that title was that reflecting back there was a lot of people that would judge me either because of my background, my culture, my color, the fact that I’m only four foot 11, you know, and people always telling me, You’re weird, you’re strange, you don’t think like everybody else. And thank God for that, right? Because those people are still in their nine to five jobs, right? unhappy in their jobs, miserable, and I’m not.
So I have basically written this book about my journey about the different conflicts, I’ve had relationships with my parents, because to be honest with you, the relationship with my parents isn’t, wasn’t as great as it is today. And I had to work on that. And so you know, all the different peer pressure on people telling me that I’m living life wrong, and that I should just find a nine to five job and stick to that one job and retire and then live my life. Right? And I’m like, No, and I’ve done everything the complete opposite. Every time people told me, Oh, there’s no way you can become an MMA fighter. I’ve used that as leverage and being like, I’m going to show you and I was actually an MMA fighter for a little while until I had a health issue. Right?
And then it redirected me then I became a police officer. And I was a police officer for six and a half years. And then again, I had a health issue, and it redirected me. Right.
And so this book is about all the different things that I went for. But what I really wanted for my readers is to realize that when reading this book is actually giving you a preventative measure. Right? So you might be going through similar things to me that I’ve been through in different areas of your life, and realizing that there’s always a light at the tunnel, because guess what, we all have choices. Right? And it’s your choice, whether you’re happy where you are, if you’re not vintage, make that change.
But we all have choices at the end of the day. And no matter what anyone’s telling you, or what naysayers around you, if there’s a passion of there’s something that you want to do, right, that every time they say to you, you can’t do that you’re straying, you’re weird, you’re living wrong, use that as leverage and prove to them that you totally can.
The Importance of Strategizing and Planning 8:37
That is a golden nugget. And I think, you know, just your perspective on using what life throws at us as sort of reality checkpoints and say, Okay, what’s the next step? Why is life telling me this?
But let’s get down to business. You’re a business strategist and our tribe battle with planning. So, and I think we all agree You know, having a plan to get you where you want to be, is better than just acting out on wimps. So you need something. But I’d like to, I’d like to hear your perspective on, you know, the relative importance of planning and strategizing in your own business.
You know, the very first thing that I learned to do, and in fact, my mentor, and I have many different mentors, that told me that if you want to be clear, right, and if you this certain steps you’re looking for, to get you to where you want to be they you need to know where that is, you need to be absolutely clear and specific as to what you want your life to look like. Right?
And I remember when my mentor told me this, and I told him, Well, yeah, I want lots of money. You know, I want to be able to travel the world and do what I want. And he goes, No, that’s not enough. How much more do you want? What does that number look like to you? Where are you living? Where are you travelling to? What does your house look like? I want you to visualize every room in your house and where it is what it looks like, right? What kind of bedding do you have? What picture frame do you have? Like, it has to be so clear that you know where everything is and what it looks like, right?
I’m like, How the hell do I know that? I haven’t got a clue, right. And so he made me sit down and write out and where I originally wrote it out. And it was that five sentences, right? When I actually got clear and sat down, like it was a book, it went on for pages and pages and pages. And when I send it to my mentor, he goes, That’s what I was looking for. He goes, now you know what your end goal looks like, then we can start putting steps into place to make sure you get there. Right. So that’s the number one rule.
The importance of time management skills 10;30
Number two, oh, my goodness, you got to be so good with your time management skills. Right. Because when you are building a business, or transitioning from going into a nine to five to building your own, there’s going to be so many things that you have to do, right. And if you are the only one in your business, you don’t have a team of people, you are your business, and you’re going to be able to juggle everything. So you’re going to juggle your nine to five job, you’re going to juggle doing building your business. And if you have a family, you know, if you’re married, and you have kids, or if you don’t just like, I’m not mad at you, but have my parents that I’m looking after, you got to be able to juggle all of that as well.
And so the number one thing that I learned when it comes to learning about time management, is making sure you put all the tasks that you do on a daily basis in a calendar. Right, put it in a calendar. And my rule is if is not in my calendar, guess what, it doesn’t get done. So I literally live off of my calendar my day to day tasks. I’ve got so anal about it. I even put in there what time I have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Right? Because what happens is, when you got so many things to do, right? You forget to take care of yourself. And if you don’t take care of yourself, how are you going to be able to accomplish all these things. And so, putting in breakfast, lunch and dinner, making sure you put time out to look after yourself is also vital. Okay. And so getting down and prioritizing and making sure you’re good with time management is also essential.
Taking care of number one. 14:00
Now the third thing. The third thing, even though I’ll put it as number three, right, I guess is more vital than anything else I’ve already mentioned. And the reason for that is because you have to take care of number one. You can not serve your clients or your family or anyone else in the world unless you serve yourself first. And what I mean by that is making sure you take your time out not just breakfast, lunch and dinner, but have a morning ritual. I have a morning ritual what I get up about 530 in the morning, right? I do exercise. I then read maybe about five to 10 pages of in a book and do my meditation. I sit there and I focus I get clear on what needs to happen today. Right so my mornings are so important to me. The days that I skipped those days. My day is just a manic, it never gets done the way I want it to get done. Everything I’ve planned doesn’t work out. And so having those morning rituals are vitally important in order for you to get clear for you to get focused and have a productive day. Make sure you put the time out there for yourself.
I love that. And, coming back to our crowd of health coaches, one of the most important things that we learn in health coaching school is that you first look after yourself. Because if you’re not looking after yourself, it’s very difficult to give to your clients.
The Miracle Morning 15:36
I’ve got another tip for you. If you’re not sure what kind of task you should be doing in the morning, read a book called Miracle Morning. Yeah.
You guys, me and Didi, we both know how old this book is. If you haven’t read it, go ahead and read it, it will set your mornings up. And you’ll get clear. And you know, your days will be also once you’ve done this really guys.
Look, just a side note on that book. I was blown away by it, for the simple reason is that it just structures your day, and getting up 30 minutes earlier and see what difference it makes to your whole day. You know that? Just doing that morning routine?
How long should you plan ahead? 16:20
I want to ask you another question. In terms of planning, you’ve said that your mentors asked you to, you know, to put down how you see your life looking in x-years. But in terms of business, we know it’s volatile. And we know things change very quickly. And I often get asked that question, how long ahead should I be planning for my business? Because you know that the traditional business school model says you have to have a five year or a 10-year plan. But for a lot of health coaches, and even for myself, you know, five years at my age, I’m in my 60s, it’s just, it’s just too long for us to follow along. So what’s your thoughts on that, you know, in terms of a planning cycle?
So I believe in having long term and short term plans, right, now, the long term will be five to 10 years, right? What are your overall ultimate plans? I even have like plans for like in the next 15-20 years, right. But he needs to be able to plan on the short term as well. And so the best, the best strategy that I’ve come across is that that I work backwards. Right. And what I mean by that is once I found out what my ultimate goal was, my long term goal was, I then looked at okay, so what do I want to achieve in the next 12 months? And then gone even further back? What do I want to achieve in the next six months? And what we want to achieve in the next three months and the one month, right, so you get to a point where this is what I want to achieve in the next 30 days. Right?
Now you’ve got that, let’s take a look at what you’re doing on a daily basis to achieve that goal. Right. And then it’s easier to put steps in place when you have shorter goals, smaller goals, right? It gets a little bit overwhelming. When you’re thinking, for example, me, my ultimate goal is to build a well-being resort, right for entrepreneurs. And I want to do it like in Thailand or Bali, somewhere exotic, that way, you can actually relax, refresh, you know, and get back to business once you’ve dealt with that. And so, I have learned that because it is overwhelming to think about that.
Let’s just break it down. Let’s simplify it. Right. And I’m all about simplifying everything. And then the best way to simplify is breaking those big goals down into little stones, right, big rocks or little stones, and then achieving those small steps in order to achieve the bigger goals. And so working backwards for me works really well. And I’ve actually done this with some of my clients. And it’s really funny, because once they have looked at this wall of goals and what they want to do and say the next 30 days, and they say oh my God, I need to do X, Y and Z. I don’t have time to do this. And I’ve got family and I’ve got this to do and I’ve got that to do.
Guess what? I break it down even further. And I say to them, okay, you’ve given me all these excuses right now. And they say no, no, no, there’s no excuses. I’m not into excuses. I’m like lets look at how you’re dealing with your day, on a daily basis. And I said okay, so I want it to be so specific. I want you to tell me what time you’ll be. Getting up, how long it takes you to get ready, you know, your travel journey, when distance to work, what time you finish what what time you get home, how long it takes you to cook and eat, and then what you’re doing afterwards. And because we’ve got so specific and everything they do in their day, guess what I found out. And it was a realization to them, they were spending six hours plus on Netflix every week. Right.
And the minute you start analyzing what you’re doing on a daily basis and becoming aware of your habits, that’s when you can make changes. That’s when you realize what serves you and what doesn’t serve you and where you need to make those changes. So that’s what I will do. When looking at long term and short term goals.
What to do when our plans don’t work. 20:52
I love that. And, you know, beginning with your destination, having a destination in mind. And then just planning the milestones. How are you going to get there and then tackling them one by one. Now the question is, we make these plans, and we’ve got these expectations. But then they pan out. What do we do when our plans don’t work?
Okay, do you let me tell you this, I am like the number one impatient person, right? This is something that I’m trying to work on. Because when things don’t plan out, Oh, my goodness, I get frustrated. And so what I have learned is, I’ve been able to identify my weaknesses, okay, and what I’m not very good at. And I will always contact someone in my circle. Right?
And this is why it’s important to make sure you keep you know, the right kind of people around you. Because if I’m going through anything, I can pick up a phone and say, This is what I’m going through, how do I deal with this? Right? And I’ve done that many of times. And there’s no, there’s nothing wrong with actually asking for help. Okay. And so when things have gone my way, and I’ve done all this planning, and something still goes wrong, right? And so I have like, a product that I want to launch. And I’ve set a launch day, and the launch date is like tomorrow, and everything is going wrong. And I’m like, oh my god, it’s not gonna happen.
And so I call up my mentor, and I’m like, I’m stressing out about this, I’m not sleeping, I can’t eat, everything is going wrong. And he was like, hold on a second. What are you doing right now? And what do you mean, I’m, what am I doing? I’m trying to do this launch. And it’s tomorrow. And it was that? Well, then he goes, what’s wrong if you just do it the following day? What’s wrong with that? But it’s not what I’m supposed to do. He goes, No, but it’s life. If you just hold it back for another day, what’s going to happen? What’s so tragic? No, no, oh, I guess there’s nothing really tragic about that.
Life is life is what I’ve learned, and things are gonna happen. And it’s just how to deal with it. And if you have to postpone and if you have to delay something, because something’s happened, you know, then do that. Right? Sometimes you can’t.
I don’t believe in having, you know, a 50-50 balance on everything. I don’t believe in that at all, it cannot happen. And the reason for that is different areas of your life, different aspects, different times of your life, you’re going to have to put more focus on something else than the other.
You cannot have an equal balance of everything that’s going on in your life. And so if something happens, for example, you know, about a month or so ago, my mom took a turn for the worst. Right? She wasn’t mobile, she couldn’t even get herself in and out of the bathtub. She couldn’t change herself. And I was having to do that. And guess what, it took away the focus from my business to my mom, but that was what was important right now. Right? And things like that happen, especially in recent times of the pandemic.
There are loads of things that people are going through and you just have to redirect your focus somewhere else for a little while. No, that is not permanent, is temporary until you figure that bit out. And then you can go back to focus more of your time in your business.
What happens when our plans fail? 24:41
Look, it’s like having seasons. In the different seasons in a garden or in or in farming, agriculture, different things happen. And the focus is completely different. I hear you when you’re running into these bumps. But what happens when your plans fail,
Oh, that’s pretty that’s really simple. I got really good at that plans fail, then you just test track and tweak. If it doesn’t work out, you figure out what wasn’t working, you test it out you know you track what you’re doing. And then at some point, you’ll figure out what does work and what doesn’t work and you go with what does right.
So there was that I started my own podcast. Honestly, in the beginning, I had no clue. I had no clue what I’m doing. Right. And so I started researching and find out you know, how to go about certain things have to do the editing of the graphics, and I’m not an editing graphic person. I’m not technical at any point. And so okay, how do I get how do I deal with this? And then, you know, had my first guest, guess what, all everything that was tech went wrong didn’t record, you know, it was a shambles. And so it was just a matter of fact that knowing is it hard. Is this hard to do? Or is it because I just don’t know how to do it? Right. And most of the time it’s because you just don’t know how to do it.
So what do you do? You just learn. So then you have so many resources out there to figure out, you know, how am I going to do this? And at this point, you know, I’ve really been on so many different podcasts DD just like yourself, right, that I just reached out to other podcasters that are doing it saying, DD? How are you doing this? What systems are you using? You know, I’m struggling with this area? What should I do? And so if something doesn’t work out and is a complete flop, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. It just means you need to strategize, and maybe look at it differently.
How failure plays a big role in being successful. 26:51
Oh, don’t I know it DD? Oh, my God, I have had so many failures. I don’t even know if I told you at one point. I was actually homeless. Yep, I was homeless in a foreign country in Costa Rica. I was evicted from my apartment. I had no food, I had no water. And I actually went over to Costa Rica to help this business out with the events division because that’s where my main skill is doing events, sales and marketing, things like that.
And the company was paying for everything. My apartment had my own chauffeur, food and water. And while I was out there the company shut down. Yeah, the company shut down, which meant I’m now homeless no food or water. And like I said because my superpowers had a different perspective. That’s what saved me. My mindset and having thinking very differently to everyone else, was what saved me in that situation. I’ll tell you why.
I remember sitting there when I found out that holy crap, this company’s gone bust looking across the room and see my co-workers pulling up the hair crying, frustrated, angry. And Diddy. I couldn’t stop laughing. I couldn’t stop laughing at this ridiculous situation. I’m now in. And my co-workers came up to me they’re like, what’s wrong with you? Do you realize what’s just happened?
And I’m like, Yeah, I do realize what’s happened. And how can I so when you think about, you know, people like Les Brown, and, you know, people that have been homeless, right in their journey, and now they’re multi-millionaire.
That means I’m going to be a multimillionaire now. Right? Because I’m homeless, you have to be homeless at one point to be a millionaire. That was my perspective. Because I had that perspective, I was able to think outside the box, get creative, and find a solution on how to get out of this mess. And if I was in a state of overwhelm, and frustration, there’s no way that you can come up with a solution.
And so what I decided to do was in Costa Rica, I was at this resort helping this company and the resort even though the main company shut down the resort was set up as a separate entity and it was still open, but the main business was actually feeding this resort. Now the main business is gone. It has no clients, which means no money, which means it still got staff and bills to pay but no way you’re paying them now.
And so I went up to the resort manager and said to her, that I can help you promote I can help you brand I can help you get attention to the resorts. So you can bring clients in, they can pay your bills and pay your staff. Let me show you how to do that. And in return, I need a roof over my head, I need food in my stomach and I need water.
And because they knew that, if they’re hired a coach it would cost 1000s of dollars. And all I’m asking for is my basic needs to be met, they jump right on it. And so I show them how to actually do this. And then what happened was, okay, I’m doing it for this resort. Let me go out to the other hotels and the restaurants on the coast and show them the same thing and help them out.
But this time, I was asking them for a little bit of money, so I can actually raise the money to get a flight to get back home. And that’s what I did.
The difference between advice and opinion. 30:47
I love that story. I really love that. Yeah, I just want to circle back a little bit, because you’ve mentioned your mentor quite a few times. And I think that’s also one of the things that set the successful people apart from a lot of other people is that, like you’ve said, we’re not shy to reach out to somebody else and say, help me with this. But a lot of people starting out still believes that they can go to Google and use Google’s, I call it the free buffet, and just Google solutions to everything. What’s your advice for somebody starting out in terms of having that circle around, you have people that that that are there to help you with your business?
So, I mean, Google is a great resource to kind of figure few things. I mean, I use YouTube for everything, right? How to do this and how to make bread, right? How to help my mom with her arthritis. I use YouTube, I’m a visual person. I don’t like things in text. I like to see it right. And so I’ve learned that. DD? I’m so sorry. Could you repeat the question? I kind of lost my track there.
I was just asking, in terms of having a circle of advisers, let’s call it advisors around you, you know, what’s your thoughts on that? And you know, how important is that for you to have real persons that you can interact with?
Yeah, so I got a little excited, then I kind of lost track. So then, how important that is, oh, my god, is that so vital? Because when you are stuck in different areas, right, you got to be able to reach out to someone in your circle, that’d be able to give you some sort of solution, right? A solution that’s actually going to be best actually gonna work advice is what are you looking for?
Because there’s a difference between advice and opinion. Right? If I go to my mom and ask her about motor mechanics, right, my mom is someone that knows everything. She knows motor mechanics, she’s a doctor, she, you know, she’s a therapist. She’s everything. But she’s not. Right. It’s just her opinion. And as much as I love my mom, you got to realize the difference between advice and opinion. If I went to an actual mechanic and ask them, you know, what’s wrong with my car? That’s advice. Right?
And so I make sure so if I’m going wrong, or I’m not sure what’s going on with my business, right, different aspects. So if it’s something to do with videography, I’ll go in someone in my circle that specializes in videography, and say, This isn’t working. I’m trying to do this, what am I doing wrong? And they’ll be able to pinpoint and say, Oh, the reason you’re doing that’s not working is that you haven’t done X Y Z. And I’m like, Oh, I didn’t know how to do that. Right? Now having a mentor. Right, rather than going on to Google. Google is a great place. Right?
I love Google. But Google doesn’t know you. Google is not a human being where they can say to you, you know what, okay, get your head out of your ass and do something about it. Right? And mentor will do that. And a good mentor is not afraid to tell you that. They will tell you what you need to know not what you want to know. And a mentor can if I say to my mentor, my goodness, like, I am feeling so overwhelmed right now. You know, I don’t know what’s going on.
And if you type that up in Google, you say you’re going to get a good answer from Google. There is going to be a ridiculous amount of frickin articles that you’re gonna have to read out, but when I go to my mentor who knows me and can say to me, okay, what’s happening in your world right now? What’s going on? What’s your obstacle? What’s your challenge? What’re your frustrations? Right, I can understand your overwhelm. Okay, let’s now simplify that. Because when we get into our own head Right, and we get overwhelmed. You can’t find a way. Yeah, it’s so difficult because we’re in our own heads. But when you get an outside perspective that can talk you through it, and simplify it for you is almost, Aha, I should have been able to figure that out. Why couldn’t I? But you just can’t. Because you’re in your own head now, Google cannot do that for you.
Kay’s Final Words of Advice. 35:22
Yeah. I love that advice. Love that advice. We have a saying in herbalism? That is, you can’t read the prescription when you’re inside the medicine bottle. Yes, that’s very true. So yeah. Okay, I have to wrap this up. Any final words of advice for our badass printers?
Oh, any final advice? Okay. So I do have one. So, I mean, when anyone says to me, that they’re having a lot of different obstacles in their business, and they can’t do it and find excuses. I’ve got one strategy that kind of helps people get out of that perspective. And what that is, is I say to them, we’re going no matter where you are in the world, right? And Didi, I’m gonna use you as an example, right? You’re in South Africa. I’m in the UK.
But do you agree with me that we both have the exact same time in a day, you don’t have any more extra hours than I do? Right, it’s exactly the same amount of time in the day, no matter where you are in the world. But why is it that some people can make $100 in a day, and others can make 20,000 in a day, we all have the same time?
And the difference is the change of habits. Okay, the minute you realize what habits are helping you become a success and the habits that are holding you back. That’s when you’ll see true success. Because the minute you’re able to identify that, that’s when you’re able to make the change, right. And not only will it actually affect your business in a positive way, but it will affect your entire life, your entire perspective on everything. And so the minute you’re prepared to make that change, and you realize when you need to make it, that’s when you’re going to see a whole lot of difference in your world.
