This podcast episode was actually created in December 2012 for my old Christian Women’s site, Women of Influence. However, though the domain name has now been sold, this audio from the podcast was popular and so I decided to keep this episode as well as episode #1 of the old podcast, just so you know who I am, and to lay the foundation of what The Influential Woman is about.
In this episode, I share my story.

This episode was recorded on 12/12/12, which for many was a significant day because apparently the world was supposed to end 9 days later. But here I am, updating these notes. :-)
But back then, I decided to make 12/12//12 a significant day anyway and decided I was going to be using more of my voice to create content - by way of podcasting and video blogging.
My husband often tells me, "you like the sound of your own voice," and whilst I know he doesn't say it in a malicious way, I know he means,...

AN ASIDE ...
Just a side-note, this podcast episode along with episode #2 was originally created in December 2012 for my old Christian Women’s site, Women of Influence. I've since sold this domain name.
The format of this new Influential Woman podcast has changed, but the information was too good to ditch!
It will also give you some context as to who I am, where I’m coming from, and what I stand for.

In this episode, I talk about who The Influential Woman is, and why I believe it's time for women to rise up. But I also make it very clear...
I’ve no doubt you’ve read about it – probably somewhere on social media – that women are about to rule the world.
We now have a female Prime Minister in the UK and if Hillary Clinton had won the US presidential election, I’m sure many women would have thought, “this is our time.”
But it's not about who is in power. It really is our time! Let me explain ...
You see, when most people talk about women ruling the world or the rise in the number of female entrepreneurs, often they’re referring to super powers, where women have suddenly taken on roles and positions originally only filled by men.
To me, that kind of power is sub-par to the kind of power I’m referring to when I talk about The Female Entrepreneur Revolution.
I’m talking about women rising up, waking up to their dreams, waking up to their voice and being a voice, and building their life and business around the things they love to talk about, do or teach - i.e....
So, you wish to start your own business, but feel unable to because of a lack of resources.
Here is a vital first step to grasp, which will seem counter-intuitive at first ... There is a powerful relationship between our movement toward our dreams, and the resources we need becoming available to us.
And a common mistake in moving toward our dreams is to not move at all. We wait until we have the necessary resources in hand before we start moving forward. However ...
When we procrastinate, we usually find we never start.
The bible has many such stories, where over and over God sent people out with what seemed like little, or inadequate resources. Yet, when they got to where He wanted them to be, the resources needed to get the job done were in place waiting for them.
Vision doesn't follow resources, it happens the other way around. First we have a dream, then we have to move forward. Only then, do the people and resources follow.
Its then that the...
IF, and of course, that's a big IF, you were a preacher, you'd have to preach, teach, speak - or whatever you'd prefer to call it - two or three times per week. You might preach the same message at both meetings on a Sunday if you have two Sunday services, but your congregation would expect you to deliver something new to them every week.
A good preacher, a called preacher, a caring preacher is hungry to give you a message that's going to edify, uplift, encourage, support and strengthen you?
Well, as a messenger, your audience may not be inside the four walls of a church, but if you say you have a burning desire to get your message out, how is it that so many women just go "ughhhh," when it comes to marketing their message?
I know what the answer is, but I want you to pause and consider that for a moment.
You see, most people equate marketing with fancy headlines, magnetic words, clever spins etc and so they get put off by the term "marketing"...
Or Should I Say, "How To Wake Up Your Voice!"
Hey there, it's Trish Jones.
If you've ever felt as though you're not showing up in your business or life in general as the real you, or you feel disconnected from your purpose, you've come to the right place!
And just so you know, if you feel like this or have ever felt like this, you're not alone. Every woman, creator, speaker, coach and writer I know have struggled at some stage with feeling as though the life and business they've created doesn't truly reflect who they are, and that includes me.
But it's great that you're ready to discover how you can show up, and show up as you, ready to bring more you, your voice and your message to the marketplace!
For most of our lives, many of us have learnt to act to get a reaction ...
We play the game of dressing, speaking and acting in a certain way depending on who we're talking to, and the environment we're in.
As a result, few of us grow up to...
