Are You Unknowingly Swapping Food Porn For True Satisfaction?

simple-quick-cooking-advice

When it comes to cooking and food preparation, we’re all looking for shortcuts. Am I right? Ways to make it easier, less expensive, more efficient, all the while retaining the best possible quality. But hey, if something’s gotta go, quality is often the simplest sacrifice. And who’s to say you can be blamed for not always producing gourmet fare? After all, you work long hours, you have a seemingly endless to-do list both in and out of the office, and really, you think you do pretty well all things considered. Besides, by the time you do make it home of an evening, relaxation is often uppermost of mind. Some nice mind-numbing TV. Perhaps the latest episode of Masterchef? After all, it’s always fun to drool over sophisticated dishes on the box when you can remain safe in the knowledge that preparing such food yourself is well outside your skill range. And while I agree that there’s nothing wrong with a little gastro-porn from time to time, I do have to wonder – is it possible that you’re indulging yourself so effectively in the visual feast that seems to be half of night-time television these days, that you forget to take the time to create true satisfaction in the form of, well – actual food.

Strange concept, isn’t it? But Mark over at Mark’s Daily Apple made a shocking point in a recent article title Cooking As A Spectator Sport. Mark says that we’re “apparently entranced by watching other people make food – and likely by the images of the food itself”. No surprise there. But what is quite startling when you really think about it is his next point – “for all the lure and luster of these shows, the collective fascination doesn’t appear to translate into action”. In fact, according to Michael Pollan, we spend an average of only 27 minutes each day in the kitchen. And when you consider that the average cooking show lasts for around 42 minutes plus ad-time, I think you’d have to agree that this is quite disturbing.

Personally, I’m well familiar with the ‘no-time’ excuse for proper food preparation. Mind you I’d never quite thought of it in terms of people happily putting time aside to indulge in TV food-time as an alternative. And to be honest I’m quite surprised that the average kitchen time is as much as 27 minutes! I seem to almost daily come across people who claim no time for cooking, and the fact that most of them also seem to think any cooking they do undertake needs to be complex and gourmet means that they’re unlikely to make time soon. Celebrity chefs have a lot to answer for here.

When it comes to food preparation and eating well, there’s only one way that you have any chance of daily success. The key is to get back to true basics – to realize that food, for the majority of our meals, needs to be about fuel. Not presentation, not who we can impress, not placing such great expectations on ourselves that we become completely unmotivated to do anything but hit up the freezer section of 7-Eleven for a microwave ‘meal’. How tough is it to prepare a truly sustaining meal? Meat, fat, maybe some green veg. Sure, you can add complexity to it if you choose and that’s all well and good to do on occasion, but the basics of correct nutrition have evolved from almost no cooking time at all. What’s more, unless you’re still hunting your food, your preparation time should be fairly minimal these days! The recipe for success is to remember what food is there for – fuel and nutrition. And when you get that right, enjoyment most definitely follows.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
