The Click Moment: Julie’s Blog

Well, it has been an absolutely fantastic week for so many reasons.  We’ve got loads of great things coming up here at Women Unlimited Central.  In this video I share with you how I feel about being a finalist for the Stevie Awards (which is pretty damn amazing!) and how important it is that we celebrate our successes.   If you have something that you are celebrating, please share it in the comments below.

I also reveal the amazing venue that we have secured for the Women Unlimited conference on March 8th (make sure you save the date!) Finally, I give a quick off the cuff review of a book that I think is well worth reading; The Click Moment: Seizing Opportunity in an Unpredictable World by Franz Johansson.

I love this book as it is all about embracing the random.  Life is random, the world is random … but by  seeking out random influences, we can increase our chances of success. The reason that opening us up to ‘click moments’ works, is that it allows our brain to relax and make connections that it wouldn’t otherwise make.  This is why we have our best ideas in the shower (or in my case when I wake up at 5:00 am in the morning).  I have discovered that if I get up and write them down, there are some real gems in there and you will see some exciting things coming out of Women Unlimited next year off the back of 2 of those early morning inspirations that I had this week.

Combining two unlikely forces often creates what appear to be serendipitous moments and I think this is why the Women Unlimited business club works so well.  You don’t know who you are going to be brainstorming with and as we all bring our own unique backgrounds and insights to the table, it allows fresh thinking and random connections to be made.

In the video I also share my click moment that was the foundation for Women Unlimited and ultimately why our business turned from an online format to a training format for our business model.

I hope you enjoy the video and please share any click moments and celebrations that you have had in the comments below (and make sure you save the date!)

  1. As a mom, my best click moment is when I hear my baby’s first cry and when I see his angelic face. It was just so awesome it’s even hard to describe in words.

  2. I’m really looking forward to the conference. Any more news on the guest speakers?

    • Hi Bobby … we’re almost there :-) , just waiting on a couple of confirmations and I’m hoping to get everything up on the site next week. I am soooooo excited about the conference this year and really think it’s going to be amazing!

  3. I can’t wait for the conference in March! Wish you all the best! You should be proud of what you have achieved so far.

  4. Thanks Brice! I look forward to seeing you there! Have an amazing week.

  5. I get some “click moments when cleaning, or doing something in the kitchen. The mindless stuff. I have to write it down pretty quick, or it flits away.

    Another moment is to tell myself to work something out or come up with an idea when I wake up. A lot of times I will have it worked out by the next morning.
