As I shared in my podcast last week, I’m going to be talking to you about becoming Queen of your business.
I’ve been running my own business for many years now and don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing everyone in the online world sharing their ‘blueprint’ for overnight success. The truth is, there is no magic solution, you’ve got to put the work in honey!
If you’re anything like me, then running a business has triggered every limiting belief you’ve ever had (and those you didn’t even know you had) For me, it’s been a rollercoaster journey of both excitement and fear. What’s been a game-changer for me and my clients is working on mindset as well as business. (You’re amazing by the way, not many people can do what we do!)

What I’ve learned over the years in this long-term game of business, is that you need to step up, to be a leader of your business, a Queen.
I want to help you to start thinking like a Queen of your business, but what’s your definition of a Queen?
Now my version of a Queen is a medieval one. My Queen is dressed in all of her refinery, beaded gowns, stunning gem filled crowns and exquisite pieces of jewellery. She has a presence that can’t be unseen, she is confident in what she does. She seeks counsel, and has an entourage of support but ultimately makes brave decisions and can be relied upon to lead her people.
In one of my Queen of Business Mastermind groups, I asked this question and got so many different replies.
One client couldn’t get Queen Elizabeth out of her head.
Another had Beyoncé as her Queen.
Someone else was thinking more about Daenerys, the Dragon Queen in the Game of Thrones.
When you become a Queen of your business, you get to choose what type of Queen that is.
When I wrote my profile on LinkedIn here’s how I defined a Queen:
- One that takes strategic and brave action, not just any action.
- One that has clear boundaries, and isn’t afraid to make tough decisions.
- One that stands up in front of her people, despite any fears going on underneath.
- One that ditches the self-doubt, knows her worth and owns it.
- A Queen that shows up, no matter what.
Okay, so that’s some of the things that I think of when I think of a Queen. I also think of things like:
- Strategic Vision
- Emotional Intelligence
- Problem Solving
- Managing a team
And so much more. All topics we’ll be talking about in future podcasts.
Today, I invite you to write a list of all of the qualities you believe you need as a Queen. I’d love you to drop me an email telling me what you come up with. I’ve popped my email in the show notes for you
Today, decide to be the Queen of your business, to create a success mindset and to build your royal empire one step at a time. You’ve got this!
