New year check-in
Happy Happy 2023 Whoo hoo. It’s a new year. It’s arbitrary. Yes. And yet still there is that sparkling new energy that comes with the new year. If you’re not feeling too worse for wear after the last few days and nights, I know I won’t have gone to bed particularly late on New Year’s Eve. So I think I’ll be fine when this episode goes out. Of course, I’m pre recording it for everyone’s convenience.
But happy 2023 I hope you’ve had an amazing few weeks off, I hope you have had those weeks off, I hope you’ve had time to enjoy.
I want to say with your family, play board games is always a favorite for me. Maybe some nice wintry walks, readings and books eating lots of yummy food, and that you’re feeling refreshed and ready for whatever this new year has in store because of course, we never know what exactly is coming up. Now, if you perhaps were very busy, as I’m sure many of you were in December, and you missed the last few episodes, I do want to draw your attention to a few things that happened in December. So first, we had a really special episode, a long episode that went out the first week of December, just checking the numbers, I think it’s 211 Episode 211. So if you go to onestepoutside.com, forward slash episode 211. Or you can just find it on your favorite podcast app, which I guess you’re listening to right now. So that’s reimagining success in the face of adversity, which is a really special special episode that I did with Sam Mitchell of autism, rocks and rolls. So that’s a really good one, the subsequent couple of episodes to 12 to 13. We’re reviewing 2022. And looking ahead to 2023. So again, if you didn’t have a chance to listen to those, then because again, I’m sure you had other things to think about in December, if you do still want to.
And I definitely encourage you to take the time to review how 2022 is gone and set your intentions for 2023 Then do check back over those couple of episodes. The final episode of year was also an interview with the wonderful Penny terndrup. So listen out for that one if you haven’t listened to that one yet, as well. Now, today’s one is a little short episode, because of a bit of a transition, I suppose a couple of things. So first of all, I’m going to throw it out there right away in case you stop listening, which of course you’d never do. And I’ve done a survey. So one step outside.com forward slash survey, one step outside.com forward slash survey, he’ll give you the link right away.
And but this is my little request to you, as a listener as a member of my community, I hope it only take a few minutes to fill out.
It’s asking you about your goals for this year, what might get in the way, in particular, how I can help you if you’re in the Facebook group and or things like that, just to help me create new content. Of course, for this podcast, if there are topics you’d like to see paid programs, free workshops, all sorts of things. So I really want to listen to you, I really am not quite a blank page. But I’m certainly very open to new ideas and directions this year, having kind of closed a bit of a chapter at the end of last year. Having said that, I’ve closed that chapter. Speaking of chapters, if you’re not aware, then I want to let you know that my new book outside of the nine to five is now available. So I did re record an episode episode 208 Back in November, about this book in the hopes that I would publish it by then I was able to publish it just before Christmas in a bit of a pre sale period.
Now, that will run until next week when I have a mini series for you. So there’ll be five episodes to match. Of course, my five pillars, the five pillars of building a business that will allow you to escape the nine to five. And that is the topic of the book. So outside the nine to five, your practical guide to designing and building a business that gives you more freedom, flexibility and fulfillment. And little mini series next week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, so five days, they are short, I promise. Don’t worry, it’s not too burdensome. But if you’re not familiar with my five pillars, and if you’re not familiar with a book, which I imagine most of you won’t be since it’s just released. And I really encourage you to listen to those to get a bit more of an idea of what I’m talking about. And if the book will be valuable for you. If you decide it will be valuable, then of course, I’d love for you to head on over to Amazon. I haven’t been promoting it broadly beyond my community because I’m still doing this discounted pre sale period for the next week. So you can grab the paperback, you should be able to get it at your local Amazon store, search outside of the nine to five or you can go to outside the nine to five.com and I will link them up for you the nine and five numbers outside the nine to five.com. So the book will appear as sort of a normal price but it is a discounted price.
The Amazon platform just won’t let me do a promotion on the paperback so it’s half price right now. And then a couple of weeks we’ll go back up to the ongoing full price. You can also pre order the Kindle version, which we’ll be releasing next Friday the 13th don’t build and I do hope to record the audio version, but don’t hold your breath because that I’m sure will take a long time to figure out. So hopefully later in the year, in the meantime, you get the paperback. And I encourage you to get the paperback because it’s a very interactive book. It’s almost like a workbook. And in fact, I might even release a workbook version. But it’s the five pillars, four steps on each pillar, and very practical exercises at the end of each pillar. So outside the nine to five, you can grab the book now, as part of my community over on Amazon, I mean, it’s publicly available, so anybody can grab it. But of course, I really want you guys to get your hands on it first guys and gals, and anything in between.
So next week, we’ll do a full kind of promo. launch week, which I wasn’t able to do before Christmas, because I was poorly. And hopefully I’ll be better in January. But certainly, as you listen to this, I’ve already pre recorded next week’s series. So I promise it’ll be there for you. Again, you can grab the paperback, half price right now. And of course, I do ask that if you could leave a review on Amazon that would be incredibly invaluable for me selfishly, but of course, also for the people to be able to find the book and to, to value to benefit from it as well. So that’s the little episode today. So again, recap, go back to December and listen to those episodes.
The really interesting, if I do say so myself, not thanks to me, thanks to the guests, I had reimagining success in the face of adversity, speaking to Joe who grew up in pretty adverse conditions and was homeless for some time, and also to Sonny who has spent time twice in prison and was an incredibly inspirational person to speak to. And of course, he’s a motivational speaker, as well. couple of episodes as well, in December review in 2022. Looking ahead to 2023, and you’ve got outside of the nine to five as well. So check out the mini series coming next week, I really look forward to sharing more about the book. And I hope that by now, some of you will have had a chance maybe over Christmas eager beaver’s, or you’ve already read the book or dug into it. And I’d love to hear your feedback, of course, and again, if you could do a review on Amazon, I’d be eternally grateful. I’m not trying to become an Amazon Best Seller in kind of the crazy hacky ways that are recommended by all the gurus online, I’m hoping that it will stand the test of time and become, you know, a valuable resource over time rather than trying any kind of little marketing hacks for the launch. So yeah, I’m hoping that’ll be a super valuable, as I’ve said many times valuable resource for you. It’s a labor of love. It’s it’s really a consolidation of the insights I’ve developed from my own experience working with clients over the past several years. And I really look forward to hearing what you think of it. So as identified and get it at Amazon, and next week, we’ll be talking all about it on a little mini podcast series. So look out for that. In the meantime, don’t forget my survey, I really asked you to fill this out for you. And I’m sure if you have questions and obstacles and things that are stopping you from engaging, participating, signing up whatever other people do to so please sort of on behalf of the community as well. I’d love to hear your concerns and feedback and questions and ideas and so on. So, one step outside.com forward slash survey. Thank you so much, and I’ll see you next week for the mini series. Bye for now.
