CLARE:

Welcome to the podcast for a second time, Shannon Wood. He’s my best friend and my husband. As this is the 100th episode of The Clare Wood Podcast, I’ve invited him along to come and ask me some questions, some that I know what they are, some I have no idea what he’s going to show out of me. But it’s good to have you here, babe. Thanks so much for coming along.

 

SHANNON:

Thank you for inviting me on and I’m looking forward to having a bit of a chat too and hear what you have to say.

 

CLARE:

Awesome. If you do want to hear a little bit more about Shannon’s and my story, that he has appeared on the podcast before, and we’ve also been on another podcast, The Love Club Podcast. I’ll pop the links in the show notes for today’s episode, so you can go and hear a bit more about our story. But for now, I’m going to hand it over to you and I must go quiet.

 

SHANNON:

All right, all right. Look, I’ll rip into it. There’s a heap of questions I’ve got for you. Did you always know you wanted to run your own business?

 

Becoming a business coach

 

CLARE:

Yeah, I did always have a calling, I guess I knew. Whenever I met someone who ran their own business, I got obsessed with it and I would ask lots of questions. I’d always feel a bit jealous and think, “I wish I could run my own business.” It was many years ago. I actually hired a coach to help me get through whatever was blocking me. For some reason, I still didn’t take the step then. I was just paralyzed, I guess, with fear and yeah. Even though I always had the calling, it was much lighter before I actually took the leap and did it.

 

SHANNON:

Okay. When did you make that final decision?

 

CLARE:

Actually, it was after you started your business. Shannon has a recruitment business, specialising in animal health. I was really trying to get him to take the full time leap. He had set the business up before and had worked in it before. Like I said, I get so excited by people running businesses. I really encouraged him to start his own. Not long after that, I think I was seven months pregnant, wasn’t I?

 

SHANNON:

It was about six weeks before our first child was born. I started my business and then, I think was after he was born that you took the leap, but you’re already on maternity leave, anyway. I think you gradually worked your way into work in your own business.

 

CLARE:

Yeah. Well, actually, what happened was that I got made redundant. I’d been working in a corporate role and they had said to me very clearly, “You can only come back if you come back in a full time capacity.” After you have your first little baby, you’re thinking, “I don’t to work full time.” Yeah, I think it was six months into my maternity leave they contacted me and let me know that I’d been made redundant. That’s when I said maybe I should start a business. I remember that at the time, I saw consulting business, coaching something along those lines. I think I’d been helping you with your business, actually.

 

SHANNON:

Yeah, you sure were. It was all good that I like … I mean, I think you got excited when you’re helping me.

 

CLARE:

Yeah and then you said to me, “People would pay you for this.” Then that’s when I thought maybe coaching or consulting and I told one of Shannon’s relatives, actually, and she referred me a couple of clients within the first week. It just started from there. I’m so grateful because I’ve never looked back. I couldn’t be happier doing what I’m doing now. Yeah, I’m glad these steps happen to get us to the place we are today.

 

SHANNON:

That’s so good. I don’t know if anyone here is listening knew that before we started this, we jumped on. We did an Instagram thing where I asked if any of your people or followers had any questions, and there was a bunch of questions came through. She asked, “How did you come to the decision to leave your career as an accountant, and was there any struggle about throwing away “your career?”

 

CLARE:

Yeah, it follows on pretty closely from the last thing. I don’t think it was a deliberate I’m walking away from accounting decision, per se, it was more that I wanted to help people in their businesses and I had wanted to start my own business and hadn’t really known how I could do that. I didn’t know. I didn’t have any reservations about moving away. To be honest, I never really thought that I was meant to be an accountant. I’ve always been much more big picture.

 

CLARE:

I am very grateful that I have my background in accounting, and that I am a qualified CPA, because it means that I can support people in their financial space in a really knowledgeable way. But I haven’t had any reservations walking away from it. I still use, obviously, the financials talking about money and I still get my hands dirty in spreadsheets for my clients a lot and Shannon.

 

Clare’s biggest business failures and learnings

 

SHANNON:

Looking back from when you first started, what do you think are your biggest failures and learnings? Then there’s a second part to the question of which is flipped. Have you spent money on things that looking back you wouldn’t have or looking back at what are the biggest things that you stand out from when you first started are things that you look back and go, yep, this is helping me today?

 

CLARE:

Okay. What’s going on in that question? I would definitely say my biggest failures/learnings today, have been around launching and Shannon, how many times I literally sob myself to sleep over launches that didn’t go to plan. I am such an optimist that I would often go into launches thinking, “There’s going to be 60 people that come into this brand new product you’re offering.” Then if a launch fell short, I massively beat myself up about it. I was saying lots of awful negative things to myself. I got in some pretty dark, sad places when things didn’t go to plan.

 

Of course in hindsight … Hindsight it’s such a beautiful thing. I can say that it was all part of my journey. I am actually so grateful that these things happened to me because with clients of mine, when they have a launch that doesn’t go to plan, or even when they’re planning their launches, I can say, “Hey, it’s going to be okay. You’ll get through it.” Also, give them some context around why things have or haven’t worked for me in the past. I like to be really transparent that, yes, I like to celebrate the wins but it’s like, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows in business land. There’s lots of ups and downs. That’s probably been the worst, I guess, times of my business journey today, has been when launches haven’t gone to plan.

 

Also, I guess another thing that’s been really challenging has been cashflow issues. Again, it’s something I’ve spoken about here on the podcast. But going through times, even when business is doing well, where cash is tight, having two of us being entrepreneurs, often we find that one of our businesses is up and the other one’s down. There have been times where there’s tax bills and unexpected things that come up and that in the past has been really stressful as well. In terms of what have I invested money in wasn’t a good idea, was that the question?

 

SHANNON:

Yeah, yeah. Looking back, you would probably wouldn’t have done that.

 

CLARE:

There’s nothing hugely that springs to mind straightaway. There have definitely been things that consultants that I’ve worked with, or things that I’ve done over the years that afterwards I’m like, “Well, that wasn’t what I was expecting necessarily”. It’s funny at the time. It might have felt like such an offshoot moment, but I look back on it now and I’m like it doesn’t … In the big scheme of business, I don’t look back on it and go, “Oh my gosh, that crippled me or anything like that.” I’ve always … I haven’t been a huge investor, particularly in the early stages of my business. I’ve ran it very conservatively and it’s only been probably the last, a bit over a year, that I’ve really been leaning in and investing in a big while. I’m talking about making really big investments in the business.

 

SHANNON:

What are the big things that stand out that you did that’s helping you so well today?

 

CLARE:

The big things that I’ve done … Truthfully, the big leaps are big shifts that have happened in my business has been off the back of investing. I’ve shared this before on the podcast, but I’ve gone to retreats that was significant financial investments. I’ve been part of a mastermind, that again, at the time, I can’t tell you how scary that investment was. It was a really big financial commitment but it’s probably been one of the things that’s completely changed the trajectory of my business. I’m currently getting a new brand on, a new website. I’ve invested in copywriters, courses, coaches, consultants and I don’t know. I’m finding the more that I lean into investing, the more I’m finding that I’m having big leaps in my income or breaking through plateaus.

 

SHANNON:

Okay. What have been some of the highlights of running your business?

 

CLARE:

Some of the highlights, I think, when I had my first $50,000 month, my first, I mean, I’ve only had one at the time of recording. But what it showed me was that anything is possible. I remember that was such a symbolic moment for me. I’m getting emotional now, I’ve been thinking about it. It was just one of those moments where I’m like, “If you really get into energetic alignment and believe something is possible, then you can start to create it.” That for me was just such a big wow moment.

 

The other thing that … The other, I guess, real highlights for me have been my clients achievements and you will know. I mean, I celebrate as strongly, if not more, than I celebrate my own successes when my clients have wins. One of my clients has hit her first $100,000 a month and I feel so much pride, I feel so much gratitude for them. Being able to support people on that journey, that for me Just is one of the most amazing feelings in the world, is being able to support other people to achieve their dreams as well. So, yeah.

 

SHANNON:

Yeah, people don’t see it, but I see you after your calls and you come down and you’re buzzing, you electrify, jumping up and down, and you’re just so happy for them. Yeah, you just … It lights you up. It’s honest. They just absolutely love what you do and seeing your clients grow and succeed it makes me so happy, like a beam with pride when I see you doing so well and hearing such great comments from all of your clients and people that you don’t even really know that reached out to you as well that, “God, just love your energy. I love what you’re doing and you’re always showing up.” It’s fantastic. It’s so good and also going on another question I had was people also don’t see that you can start at 4:00 AM in the morning, getting up to the kids and you’ll be still tapping away working at sometimes 10:30, 11:00 o’clock at night, if not longer. You’re working weekends. I think you work a lot. I’d love to know how you stay so motivated. There’s three parts of this question as well. How do you still have so much energy to give to the boys and me? And how do you still find time for you?

 

The balance between business and family

 

CLARE:

Yeah. This is interesting. I guess that I don’t want to put the rainbow recording over the top. There’s definitely days like today. I do work weekends and late at nights sometimes, but I also do take a lot of time off during the workweek. I guess something … I think something I talk about a lot is living a business that’s in alignment. I think that for everyone that looks really different and I know that for some people, they will never pick up their computer at nighttime, like you’re one of those babe.

 

SHANNON:

Yep. Yep

 

CLARE:

But for me, I will often go and get my hair done, or my nails done, or go out for lunch, or take a half day with the kids, or take the kids to an appointment during working hours. I’m happy to pick up at night because I’ve had a big chunk of time off during the day. Another big thing that’s become a bit of a something, is on a Sunday afternoon. I sit down, I prep for the week. If I’ve got my mastermind call, I might have a glass of wine and just really feel into the messages that they want to receive. It’s become a really beautiful part of my spiritual practice that I have on a Sunday.

 

I do work hard. I’m definitely curving it. From where I was, maybe a year to two years ago, I was working a lot. But I just love what I do. I think that’s the other thing too, I guess that’s where my motivation comes from is I can be in moments and think, “Oh, this is something that might help people if I share it on the podcast or on an Instagram story and that’s for me, it’s really become like this work life integration that of the two, yeah, just come together really well. You shared this before. I’m so passionate about what I do and even when it’s not clients of mine.

 

I had people contact me on Instagram going, “I listened to your podcast episode and I implemented this and I’ve just had my first $10,000 month or $20,000 month.” They’re like, “Big thank you to you.” For me, that’s why we show up. That’s why we do what we do. That’s how I get a lot of my motivation is just by being able to help others.

 

SHANNON:

That’s so good. What about, how do you find time for you then?

 

CLARE:

Because I’ve got a great husband, I would definitely say that. You and I are a team and I think that would be the biggest thing. The only way that I’m doing what I’m doing is because we do. We support each other and you take the kids a lot. I know that people sometimes go, “How are you doing it all? How are you getting to the gym?” I’m like because their father’s looking after them. I know I give you your time as well. Shannon is a big squash player so it’s given time but often, I do my self care stuff during the “workweek.”

 

I might go and get a massage while the kids are at school and in childcare. I might go get my nails done while they’re in school or childcare. I do a lot of meditation and lying around. The other day we saw these, no offense if you’re a council worker and you’re listening, but we saw these council workers and there was like 10 people, and they were all just standing around. I said to Shannon, “It looks like they don’t really do anything.” And you said to me “If someone watched you in a work day, they might think the same thing.”

 

SHANNON:

Sometimes.

 

CLARE:

I know. There’s a lot of lying on the bed and staring out the window and visualising and things like that. So yes, that’s how I look after me. I guess this is a little tip that I would share with people is, there can be so many excuses. I don’t have time to look after me, but I have honestly found that the more that I invest into myself and into my self care, the more money flows to me. It sounds cliche and a lot of people go, “Oh, that’s good for you. You can …” But like I said, often it means that I’m then working on a weekend or late at night to finish off work because I have taken that space when I could when the kids weren’t around. I think that you can create space in your business and your life when you want to and you’re intentional about it and you just find a way to make it happen.

 

SHANNON:

Is there one thing that stands out as the best investment you’ve made in the business?

 

CLARE:

There’s been lots of investments that I’ve made that have been big game changers for me. I would definitely say that one of the biggest game changes for me has been investing in a mastermind. It was a huge financial investment at the time. But, I mean, you will know that’s probably been where I’ve moved from that six-figure mark to the multi-six-figure mark, was being in the energy of people that were doing really big things. Initially, I felt super intimidated. I remember that people were talking about having a $30,000 month and a $40,000 month and a $50,000 month and I was like, “Whoa, I am so out of my depth here.” But then it just starts to become really normalised. I started to look at what they’re doing, integrate those practices into my business. Part of that mastermind was doing a lot of the “woo woo” spiritual work and it’s become such a powerful strong part of my business practices now that my clients will have felt that shift in me. I’ve always been very practical focus. But as soon as I’ve started to incorporate spiritual practices and energetic practices into my business, that has been one of the biggest game changes, and I learned that a lot of those skills through my mastermind. If there was one that stood out to me, it would be investing in a mastermind.

 

SHANNON:

Yeah, that’s good. Good. I like it. The woo from you has definitely increased over the last 12 months. Yeah. Is there anything that you feel people should know that you find most beneficial or do you think it’s a more of a daily thing, or is there anything that stands out on the on woo woo that sort of stuff that you think is the best?

CLARE:

Yeah. I feel like different practices work for different people and I think that it’s really about trying different things and finding something that works for you. I’m really strong on meditation and journaling and most, I can’t even explain it. It’s just like being really in alignment with the thing that you desire, but I know that for different people, different practices work really well. I think that it’s about trying different things, working out what works for you.

 

I know some people are really big into crystals, some people are really big into body work and energetic work. I think that if you were wanting to lean into that, look for mentors who inspire you in that space and experiment with different practices and find something that works for you. But honestly, it’s been such a game changer for me and I really recommend it for anyone who’s listening.

 

SHANNON:

How do you stay motivated? Have you ever got content burnout?

 

CLARE:

Oh, I think I spoke to the motivated before about it’s just being super passionate about what I do. That’s my motivation is that I really want to make a change in people’s lives and a change in the planet. In terms of, do I get content burnout? Yeah, absolutely all the time. I feel that actually my energy around content can be a little bit up and down in terms of producing consistent content. But a lot of business leaders that we look to aren’t every single day punching out high grade quality content.

 

It’s definitely comes in peaks and troughs for not just for me, but a lot of the leaders that I look up to share this as well. I think that if you are looking for ideas for content, a couple of tips. Firstly, look at what your audience are asking you and your clients asking you, that will be one of the best ways that you can create content that’s going to connect with them

 

Secondly, when you do think of things jot it down and then write it when you get stuck. I’ve got a whole word document of ideas for podcast episodes. When I do think of something, I put it into there and then if I am a bit stuck, then I can check that out at a later stage. This is why I love Instagram is because if something comes to me in the spot, I will just share it. That’s why I love Instagram. It’s my main platform. If you do want to connect with me and learn a bit more about me and the lessons and things, make sure you do come over to @Clare_Wood_Coach and give me a follow, because that’s where I drop things that come up on the regular.

 

SHANNON:

It’s good advice. Very good. This one’s from dot com digital. The question is, two partners, two businesses, and two kids, do you have any tips, tricks learnings?

 

CLARE:

Oh, maybe we can both talk about this. Okay, a couple of things. I think that, firstly, being flexible and being supportive is imperative, because there’s definitely times where you might need to jump on a call at 5:00 AM or 6:00 AM in the morning. I take the kids or vice versa. You might be, “Babe, I need to take this call.” Shannon is in recruitment, like I mentioned before. When someone comes through on the phone, you take the call, if it’s a CEO or someone. I think that being supportive of each other as partners is really imperative.

 

The second thing I would say is yeah, being flexible. If I was super rigid around my work days and I said, “Shannon, I’m not allowed to do… I won’t do anything with the children between these hours and these hours.” That would really affect your business and vice versa. Often it will mean if a kid is sick or something like that, we’re like, “Okay, let’s have a look at our calendars. Okay, can you move that around? What can I move around?” And really being flexible with each other to navigate through times where we have a sick kid or someone has a health appointment, or something like that. I definitely think that the work that we spoke about before, like our self care practices, and we both support and honor each other in those. You get to squash three, four times a week, some weeks.

 

SHANNON:

Yeah, three times.

 

CLARE:

Four, sometimes.

 

SHANNON:

Very rarely. That’s the wish week.

 

CLARE:

I get to the gym and I think having the space looking after ourself … Yeah, having the space to be able to do our self care practices is really important. Anything else? I don’t know, is there anything I missed there?

 

SHANNON:

Nothing. That’s pretty good. We definitely give each other space for the gym and squash and even just on the weekends. Sometimes we just like to split off and just do have one-on-one time with the kids. I think we really like to invest in having one-on-one time with each other when we can. There’s not as enough, but we really, really try to keep that as well. I think babe, we’re pretty strong on thinking if we got a really strong marriage and our relationship is really good and the kids flow and the businesses flow as well. So yeah, yeah. I think that’s some of those good things.

 

CLARE:

Or the other thing I would say too is that well, I’m supporting each other with investing. I know that at times you’ve hired a coach, I’ve hired a coach, looking to fill out the team and things like that. I think it’s trusting each other and supporting each other through our investments, knowing that it’s not always guaranteed that you’re going to return and I think that’s been another really big thing that I think has really helped us in our businesses.

 

SHANNON:

I’d love for the listeners to know, if there is something that they don’t know. Can you tell us or share something a bit about Clare Wood that they don’t know?

 

CLARE:

One thing that I’ve shared with a few people is that I didn’t actually launch my business as Clare Wood, I launched my business as this company called CTD Solutions. I had these horrendous logo that I got designed on 99 design. It was one of those websites and my business had a very corporate aesthetic when I first got started. I did a rebrand pretty early on into the piece. That’s when I rebranded my business to Clare Wood. I can’t think of anything else off the top of my head that I could share.

 

SHANNON:

I know you have had some incredible guests on your podcast. Look, I’m not going to name them all but the likes of Tina Tower, Ruby Lee, Denise Duffield Thomas, Seize the Yay, Steph Taylor, Emily Osmond, Lisa Messenger, the list goes on. You’ve had some absolute crackers on there. Do you have a favorite?

 

CLARE:

Aargh! You can’t be to asking that? My goodness.

 

SHANNON:

Go on.

 

CLARE:

No, I don’t have a favorite. I’ve had some episodes that definitely were episodes that I was like, “Wow, that was really powerful.” One was with Suzy Ashworth. There was the one with Lisa Corduff as well, was really powerful. I’ve got one coming out very soon with Erica Kramer, The Queen of Confidence and I cried filming that. There’s definitely been some really emotional ones. But I would say for the great part, a lot of my guests have been incredible like that. I honestly have been so, so lucky that most of the podcast episodes that I’ve recorded are really, really amazing delivering heaps of great content. I don’t have a favorite. A lot of them are my friends as well, so you are asking me to choose. I’ve become friends with a lot of my podcast guests, so I can’t possibly choose.

 

Clare’s dream and what to expect in the future

 

SHANNON:

What are the dreams for Clare Wood’s business and what can we expect to see?

 

CLARE:

I am writing a book at the moment actually, that is due to come out early next year, which I’m so excited about. I also want to continue to scale my current business offerings. My plans for 2021 is to add no new products into my product offering. I think that I’ve got such a fantastic mix of things to serve people at every different stage of their business. I’ve got the membership for people who are in the early stages, looking to scale to six-figures.

 

I’ve got my course which is really around mindset and helping people to shift into that next level. Then I’ve got my high ticket mastermind, which is just, honestly, such an amazing space and continuing to scale and serve people who are already at that six-figure a multi-six-figure mark towards the million dollar mark. My plan is to continue to scale those.

 

A really a big focus for me in the future is speaking which is something that years ago, I never would have dreamt of saying but I’d love to be sharing my message around money with more people and more people around the world.

 

I really want be able to be giving a lot more both inside the business but also in a really big way in terms of supporting organizations and charities that I care about globally. That is definitely the big dream for the future is to be having an impact on people’s lives in terms of scaling their businesses, but also much broader than that and helping people that don’t have the opportunities that we do both in our country and other parts of the world. That’s the big dream for the future.

 

SHANNON:

Wow, that’s good. I can’t wait to read the book, definitely. I love the concept and the idea. It’s going to be very, very, very exciting for people when they finally get to see it. Even I’m excited. I was just smiling and I was having a think back to… I remember when you did your very, very first podcast and you were a guest on someone else’s. Yeah, I think you froze, you couldn’t speak. It was a massive, massive step out of your comfort zone to get on one of those things and do that.

 

I just look at you now, you’ve got your own 100 podcasts and it’s been a massive, massive turn around. Well done, babe.

 

Is there anything on that, that you think would be any tips or tricks for anyone else who are looking to get in doing a podcast, starting a podcast or even just having that fear, that anxiety of podcasting, public speaking? I know, it’s a another big question, but we can talk a little bit more on that. That’d be good.

 

CLARE:

Yeah, for sure. I think my very first podcast, I was on the Mums With Hustle podcast, which is quite a big podcast. I pitched her idea and she said yes. I don’t know what happened, but basically, we started talking and I was visualising thousands and thousands of people listening to this and I just started shaking, and I couldn’t talk and I had to say to her, “Can we stop the recording?” Yeah, look at me now, you can’t shut me up.

 

Yes, I’m so, so proud that I’ve got this podcast that hits 100 episodes today. I guess the thing that this … The lesson in this is that you can do hard things and no matter what you’re facing in your business or your life, you can get through it and it definitely is a mindset thing. I know that, I could have walked away from that first experience and being like, “I’m never ever going on a podcast again.” It was the most terrifying experience for me. Instead, I’ve pushed through the discomfort. I remember my first couple of podcast episodes, I sat in here with a microphone and cried and I nearly didn’t launch it, because I was stumbling over my words so much.

 

The more that you do something, the easier it gets. If there is something that you’re coming up against and thinking, this is all too hard. I can never do this, there’s been so many things here and pushing through the discomfort around podcasting, pushing through this discomfort around launching, addressing a lot of my fears around worthiness, stepping into the next level in business. Wherever you’re at, I guess I just want to say to you that you can do it if you keep trying and don’t give up. If you know that you’ve got a greater purpose, then follow that because you can create anything that you want.

 

SHANNON:

Good. Is it the same with video? Do you think where … I compare with the days, I thought from your wonderful advice that I should start doing a lot more video and putting myself out there. I had a lot of fears that came up, like of all the people that I’ve pre-worked with in the podcast, they think about me and all that sort of thing that came rushing to and so, but it’s fine and then walk in front of the camera and about push that record button.

 

As soon as that button is pushed, I felt a lot of fear and overwhelm and furrows. Now, I’m here on a podcast and I’m feeling very uncomfortable as well..

 

CLARE:

You are doing a great job.

 

SHANNON:

But it’s really nice to share this moment with you though. If there’s a question in that now, babe, I can’t think of it.

 

CLARE:

Maybe you’ll have your own podcast one day.

 

SHANNON:

Probably not. But that was all the questions. Is there anything else that you wanted me to ask or add?

 

CLARE:

No, I guess I wanted to wrap up today by saying a big thank you to you the listeners. From the bottom of my heart, I’m so grateful for you taking the time out to listen to my podcast. My podcast is listened to all around the world and it’s humbling that so many of you will take their time to listen. From the bottom of my heart, a big, big thank you. Thank you for joining me for this a 100th episode and moving forward, I can’t wait to deliver even more powerful episodes that will have a change in your life.

 

If you loved this episode, or any of my episodes, if you could take the time to write a review, add or share with your friends, I would be super grateful. But thank you. I can’t believe I’ve made it to 100 episodes, and I’m showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

 

SHANNON:

Thank you, Clare.

 

CLARE:
