About Me | POWER to Live More

jo doddds

I work with home based coaches and consultants to improve your ‘POWER’ – Productivity, Organisation, Wellbeing, Energy & Resilience to enable you ‘to Live More’ and I define that as ‘getting to do more of what you want to do and less of what you feel you should do’.

I live in Hythe in Kent, UK – on a good day I can see France from my office window! I’m married to Simon and we have Little Doddsy, aka Ellie, born in 2006 (to save me having to remember to update her age!).

You can find out more about how I can help you here.

I host a podcast, which you can find out more about here and you can listen to me being interviewed on other people’s podcasts here.

I send a weekly newsletter with suggested tools, interesting stuff I find for you and links to my latest blog posts and/or podcasts and you can expect some news of what the famous ‘Little Doddsy’, my co-presenter on the ‘POWER to Live More podcast‘, (now not so little!) is up to,

Background to POWER to Live More

A few years ago I read, in Malcolm Gladwell’s book ‘The Tipping Point‘, about the concept of being a maven and realised that fairly well describes me. I am always striving for improvements in my life through reading and research and I can’t help but share what I find out along the way (and not always just when asked!).

At the end of 2014 I had an email from Pocket, the app I use to organise my article reading and learning, congratulating me on being in their top 1% of readers based on the volume of words that I’d read in the year – 1,667,769 to be precise!

They also sent me some interesting statistics about what I’d actually been reading. It came as no surprise to read that I focus my reading and learning time on the following topics:

  • Productivity
  • Technology
  • Health
  • Food
  • Business

I then realised that sharing my knowledge and experience around this stuff was what I wanted to do. And POWER to Live More was born!

Ok, it wasn’t quite as simple as that and it took a good years to get really clear about what I offer and who I help – home based coaches and consultants. I’ve been one of those myself since 2005 and aside from this business I continue to operate as a consultant in the corporate space around employee engagement and leadership – so I know your challenges!

Thanks for your interest. Please connect up on social media if you’d like.
