See what we’ve been up to…

Do you ever find yourself putting off tasks because they just feel too daunting or overwhelming to start?

Oh good, not just us then! Yes, even here at TechPixies HQ we have been known to do just that.

However we will let you in on a little secret…

… once started most of these tasks are not half as daunting, overwhelming or time consuming as you may think!

This quote seems rather apt as we start another round of our Social Media Magic course this week and welcome new TechPixies into our community. Do say hello in the comments if you are one of them! 👋

Starting something new can sometimes feel a little bit scary or overwhelming, but this is your Monday reminder that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Start by breaking the bigger task down into smaller, more manageable tasks and then get started on the first one! It’s as simple as that!

Our course is structured so that you can work through it at your own pace, taking one bite sized lesson at a time. Let us know how you get on this week.

🌟 Let’s help each other get started this week. What is that one big, overwhelming task that you need to start this week? Will you? Let us know in the comments below. 👇👇👇

Memories of the Olympics!!! In 2004 I missed out on the US archery team by just a few slots (6th and they took top 3). I went as a spectator and watched the opening ceremonies with my buddy Johnny. Cried the whole way through it was so emotional.

I spent another 4 years training full time, final ranking of 5th on the US Archery Team, an injury forcing me to effectively drop to the bottom of the list in the Olympic Trials. They took 2 women that year. I got to work in Beijing and came home engaged to my now husband, Tim Foster (Olympic Gold in Sydney 2000).

By 2012, I was married and mother to two beautiful children, I shot my last arrow in Feb 2010 in Italy when I was 8 months pregnant with my first child. I was supposed to work at the games again but a new second baby meant I went again as a spectator.

For every athlete that takes home gold, there are hundreds who just miss out and thousands who gave up years of their life and never even made the team. Even though I never 'made it' as an Olympian, I'm thankful for the experiences it gave me and the foundations in me that it developed for a successful future as an entrepreneur.

Are you a problem solver?. We love a good brain teaser at TP HQ. Here’s one to get your teeth stuck into:

Until I am measured,
I am not known.
Yet you miss me
when I have flown.
What am I?

Answers in the comments, please 👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

Why you might ask, are we giving you problems to solve? 🙋‍♀️

Well, it’s all thanks to Sherry Coutu, our inspirational guest on the Sparkle and Thrive Podcast this week.

She defines entrepreneurs as problem solvers. Granted, she’s talking about problems that are slightly bigger than the riddle above, but as she says in this clip, “Entrepreneurs just solve problems, we don’t accept the status quo. So if you don’t accept the status quo, don’t get mad, don’t winge, fix it...Find something you want to fix.”

Finding solutions to problems has seen Sherry become one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs. Like Dame Stephanie Shirley @damestephanie_ before her (we’re big fans!!!), Sherry has blazed a trail in tech, founding and then floating a $1 billion (Canadian dollar) company on the London Stock Exchange. 👏🏻👏🏼👏🏽👏🏾👏🏿

Today, she’s an angel investor, philanthropist and is STILL solving problems with her latest initiative, Digital Boost @digitalboost.org.uk

She has played BIG. HUGE, in fact. And it’ll come as no surprise to hear that she’s also inspired our own chief TechPixie. And as @techpixiejoy always says, “The best time to plant an oak tree was 20 years ago; the next best time is now.”

What does it take to play big?. We know y’all 💖 the Sparkle and Thrive podcast. But when the Pixies at HQ aren’t diving into our awesome back catalogue, you’ll find us popping in our headphones to tune into the podcasts on our playlist. And, more often than not, Jimmy’s Jobs of the Future is on repeat.

Jimmy McLoughlin, the man behind this brilliant podcast, is a legend here at TechPixes. He’s the man who ensured Theresa May is now the proud owner of a TechPixies’ mug 😆 when he arranged for the former PM to pay a momentous visit to TechPixies back in 2017. 👏🏻👏🏼👏🏽👏🏾👏🏿

As we said, LEGEND! 🦸

And given that when it comes to playing big, it doesn’t get much bigger than running the country, we figured Jimmy would have an insight or two on what it takes to lead and dream big.

So, strap in peeps! This fascinating episodes delves into Jimmy’s time as an adviser to Theresa May, how he started his podcast while being a stay-at-home dad, and why we all need to support the #AskHerToStand @5050parliament campaign.

🗳️ @techpixiejoy for PM (just saying!).

TechPixies was the start of a phenomenal journey.. Meet TechPixie Tracy, @sociallytracy, who joined TechPixies after a break from the workplace raising her children and caring for her mother-in-law.

Tracy knew that in order to return to the workplace she had to update her skills, she never thought this would lead to running her own successful business helping others create video content.

Throughout the TechPixies course Tracy grew in confidence & uncovered her passion for all things video. She worked through the modules & successfully completed the course. Tracy took her new social media skills &, with the support of the TechPixie community & life coaching from @youcomingalive, she launched her own business.⠀

She now helps others create video content, from filming to editing & everything in between, so that they can upskill & master their online presence. Her online courses are always fun & full of so much information to get people creating and editing video content for their social pages using nothing more than the phone they already own. Just ask our TechPixies who have learnt advanced reels skills with Tracy!

“I couldn't have ever envisioned coming this far. But it was Joy (@techpixiejoy) who educated me, supported me and encouraged me to go far further than I ever could have thought possible.”

🌟 An incredible journey Tracy 🎉 We are so proud of all you have already achieved and we always look forward to seeing your next reel! 🎉🥂 We raise a glass to you and celebrate your success with the obligatory @techpixies dance 💃🏽

☝️If, like Tracy, you’d like to upskill in all things social media & uncover your passions then SIGN UP NOW for our transformational course - Social Media Magic 👉 https://techpixies.com/socialmediamagic

☝️But be quick - the cart is only open until Thursday 10pm.
