Three Artists with Soul

August has been quite a month for the Moments of Light Radio show on The Barefoot Broadcast.

You can’t plan this sort of thing, it just happened but my three guests are all wonderful artists with three different takes on art and spirituality that touches the soul at a fundamental level.

In case you missed them, you can listen to the shows again here … your comments, thoughts and social media shares much appreciated.

Note that the show will be off air now until the end of September as I have a much needed break and it will be returning in a new guise when I’m back … more on that soon. In the meantime, enjoy.

They need no introduction as the recordings speak for themselves 😉

In Conversation with The English Sisters

Something rather magical happened over the last few months as this amazing force of nature called The English Sisters came into my world …

These amazing ladies are somewhat difficult to describe and encapsulate in words so, to get a handle on their insight, wisdom and erudition, have a watch and a listen to one of what I hope is the first of many chats below.

And to hear and watch more, subscribe to their hypnotic ramblings either on YouTube or on their Hypnotic Rambling site –

Twelve Ways to Generate Spin Offs

You will have no end of ideas coming your way when you follow the guidelines in two blogs …

Seven Ways to Encourage Light Bulb Moments
Seven Ways to Block Light Bulb Moments

Sometimes you can have a great idea and do nothing with it – only to see it successfully copied by someone else who you unwittingly inspired.

Sometimes your initial idea doesn’t quite live up to your hopes for it.

The solution to both these woes, lies in the Spin Off and here’s 12 ways to generate them!!

Think about your idea in these context …

1. Industry – could it be applied in new sectors?
2. International – could you change it so it works in new markets?
3. Inter-operable – could it be made to work with more ‘things’?
4. Demographic – can it be sold to a new target market?
5. Duplicity – can you replicate its essence, say with a minor change, but in such a way that it becomes something entirely new?
6. Down-size – can it be made smaller, cheaper or with a sub-set of features?
7. Education – how can it be made so that it can used to teach or be taught?
8. Entertainment – how can you make it more fun?
9. Extension – how can you add more features so it does something entirely new?
10. Augment – how can you add more features so it’s better value for money?
11. Amortise – how can you spread the cost of production to improve cash flow or spread the cost for the client
12. Agreements – who could you partner with to get to new markets or so that 1+1 > 2

Now if all this sounds wonderful but you have no idea how to introduce these practices into your business, get in touch. I am passionate about bringing these simple and freely available techniques into business – see Light Bulb Moments on Demand for more info
