Janey on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip

It was oh so hot this summer when we visited the antique shops in the Cotswolds and enjoyed our road trip for Celebrity Antiques Road Trip .. but we had a fantastic time!   Tim Smith (my partner in crime on the Steve Wright Show on BBC Radio 2) were the contestants on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip broadcast at 8pm Friday 23rd November.  We had such a great time with our antiques experts, David you are SO knowledgeable, thank you for bearing with me and my hopeless choices.

I found a few lovely quirky items though and much hilarity ensured when I found a lovely old gong, and they all took the mickey out of me for waxing lyrical about gong baths!

We’re in good company for the series there’s some cool celebs taking part,  Al Murray, Anthea Turner, and the Reverend Richard Coles among them.

The BBC website says…

Radio presenters and chums Janey Lee Grace and Tim Smith take a break from Steve Wright’s Big Show on BBC Radio 2 to seek treasure amongst the Cotswolds and the Malverns, with excellent expert guidance courtesy of auctioneer James Braxton and dealer David Harper. But long before arriving at the Buckinghamshire auction, Janey’s vintage Austin Healey takes her to uncover the story of cross-dressing music hall superstar Vesta Tilley. Meanwhile sport fan Tim in a sporty MG gets to grips with the art of Shin Kicking and the ‘Cotswold Olympicks’! Expect outsider art, some strangely coloured crockery and, of course, several factoids.

It was fantastic being driven around in the classic cars, we had a moment in the Austen Healy when it sort of ‘blew’ up – the producers had a plan B….walk several miles down country lanes to the next shop (TV gold darling!) but thankfully the experience vintage car owner who was travelling with us was able to cool the radiator down and fix it. Phew!  My favourite moment was finding out about Vesta Tilley at The Swan Theatre, what a star in her time she was, cross dressing even before pantomime!

Hope you enjoy the show, must say it was great to be back in the world of telly, Strictly here I come!  Just a joke, in my dreams x

Enjoy the show!

Health and Home on Property Radio

 

I’m pleased to be in the line-up of presenters for the brand new radio station Property Radio, it’s the first station of its kind to cover all aspects of property but also lifestyle, it’s all about your home, your holidays and your health.  My show is called Health and Home and covers all aspects of health and wellbeing sustainability and eco living. It’s a great opportunity for me to bring you some great guests, info and tips across a whole range of topics.

You can hear Property Radio on DAB in London every Sunday in association with Fix Radio between 12 noon and 6pm, for the rest of the week you can listen via www.propertyradio.co.uk

The schedule on Sundays features:

12 – 2  Jenny and Rob Ellice

2 – 4  Janey Lee Grace

4 – 6  Sharron Livingstone

I’m thrilled that I pitched out and asked for help and it came to me in the form of the fabulous Carla O’Shaughnessy who is helping me produce and is also my eco news expert. Carla worked for many years in PR for lots of big companies including a short radio stint at Virgin Radio (we think it was just after I left!) and is loving helping to find interesting guests and sustainable news.

My other regular contributer is therapist, practitioner and emotional wellbeing expert Rosalyn Palmer, she is the author of ‘Reset! A Blueprint for a Better Life’. Rosalyn is going to be looking at a whole range of issues around our mental health and wellbeing.

We have some great guests lined up including Georgina Wilson Powell founder of Pebble Magazine, a publication dedicated to sustainability, she will be encouraging us all to recognise the ‘Small change big difference approach’. Many of our guests have remarked on the impact of The Blue Planet TV series on their work and business, it seems that it’s really hit the spot and given us all a wake-up call that we need to start taking care of our oceans.

One powerhouse of a woman making a difference is George Wyatt founder of Wyatt and Jack who reclaim plastics and fabrics from deckchairs and bouncy castles, from these she creates fabulous one off bags and accessories. One of her first big commissions was for the SAS, but that’s not the army, its Surfers Against Sewage.

We will be looking at how we best use our resources and as it’s World Toilet Day soon we are speaking with Junaid Patel from FreeFlush, who help us find ways not to waste our sparkling clean water. And onto sustainability in buildings, Val Bagnell from Apex Airspace talks about utilising airspaces to help the housing crisis, and Christian Engelke discusses the possibilities of low carbon alternatives to gas boilers.

We will look at our shopping habits too, everything from how our weekly shopping might change to become more sustainable in the future with our upcoming guest Kevin Flynn from Thoughtworks, through to Jennifer Georgeson from SoJustShop, and John Pritchard who is the founder of a sustainable eyewear brand PALA.

It wouldn’t be health and wellbeing without a look at nutrition and Louise Mercieca will give us some healthy food swaps while Claire Lyons from Frugal Family tells us how we can save money and the planet. Of course it will be difficult for me to present a show without talking about ditching the chemicals and in addition to flagging up personal care products we will definitely be looking at how you can clean your home without potentially toxic chemicals – I’m hoping to interview Andrew East from Nu-eco, an amazing range of natural non toxic biodegradable cleaning products – who doesn’t want to know exactly how do you clean the loo without scary chemicals?

 

 

Our special guest on the first show is Georgina Wilson Powell founder of Pebble Magazine, a stylish sustainable magazine.

Special Promotion on the Small Business Legal Academy

ONLINE ENTREPRENEURS, COACHES, CONSULTANTS, EXPERTS, & SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS…

Cover Yourself Against Legal Vulnerabilities You Risk Encountering in Your Small Business!

Have you got your ducks in a row when it comes to your business? Recently I recommended Suzanne Dibbles excellent GDPR pack and now Suzanne has asked me to let you know about a special promotion for her Legal Academy. If you bought the GDPR pack you will by now know just how invaluable it is and so will be delighted to get an even further discount on the Legal Academy, if you didn’t buy the GDPR pack you will be pleased to know it’s included!

The Legal Academy contains over 70 templates, video guides, checklists, case studies, action plans and an 8-week email course that walks you through the most important legal issues that are likely to affect your business.

Thousands of small business owners have been helped by it. These materials are primarily for people based in the UK and all of the templates are subject to English law. However, many people use the templates who are not based in the UK particularly where they have international clients, as English law is the most popular choice of international law and many of the templates in the coaching module (e.g. online programme terms and mastermind contracts) are simply not available elsewhere.

You will have immediate access to over 70 template legal documents, such as Terms of Business, Freelance Agreement, GDPR Compliant Privacy Policy, Social Media Policy, Employment Agreement, Online Programme Terms, Copyright Notice, Website Disclaimers and many more – all of which are about areas that ARE going to be hugely important to your small business – and which you know have been drafted by a real expert but which are in easy to understand, jargon-free language.

You also have immediate access to over 20 checklists, over 20 video guides, over 20 factsheets, case studies, a back catalogue of monthly webinars and a Confusion Free Guide to Business Law manual – again, all of which will be hugely relevant for your business.

For the rest of this week (until this Friday 26th October) Suzanne is offering the entire materials with six months of updates for 70% of the usual price, namely £197 if people have already bought the GDPR pack, or £297 if they haven’t yet bought the GDPR pack. (The materials include the GDPR pack).

Purpose by Jessica Huie MBE

Whats your purpose? I’ve written a lot about this, as I meet so many people who know there’s something more for them but they just can’t seem to locate it within the chaos and the overwhelm. They find themselves asking…is there something more? And do I count? I loved interviewing Jessica Huie MBE for Hay House radio recently; Her own journey to finding purpose is hugely inspirational. The book is called Purpose, Find your truth and embrace your calling. (Hay house)

You may know of her of course, she is the founder of JHPR, an award-winning PR agency, (she has worked with Simon Cowell and Meghan Markle no less) and she is the creator of Color Blind cards, a multi award winning multicultural greetings card company which drove an early conversation around the importance of ethnic representation in retail and became the first independent brand to secure a high street presence in Britain for multi-racial cards. The Evening Standard called her one of Britain’s ‘Most inspiring Entrepreneurs’ and she sits on Glamour magazine’s Power List as one of the UK’s most influential women

Jessica is brutally honest about the impact of caring for her father as he died, and the fact that despite having what most people would call the ‘perfect’ career and lifestyle, she realised she has been a control freak and a relentless workaholic perfectionist. Her life transformed when she realised that we are not merely our bodies, and the importance of reconnecting with our true selves.

Jessica has also done lots of work to help female entrepreneurs scale up their business and be authentic in their visibility – so you can see why I felt so connected!

I asked Jessica what our starting point should be if we find ourselves constantly busy and yet not ‘connected’ with ourselves, unhappy, unfulfilled and knowing there is something more.  She suggests that should start by recognising that we need to ‘positively disrupt’ our lives, be honest and real, don’t use the ‘PR’ spin.  The truth is we all use our ‘stories’ to excuse ourselves from moving forward, so many of have the ‘imposter syndrome’ and while the exterior  seems shiny and productive, underneath we are struggling and barely coping.

Jessica says we should ask ourselves what makes us happy? What lights us up?  It’s important because once we are aligned with our truth, that’s when we get into the flow.

The book opens with a quotation from Ernest Livingstone Huie (Jessica’s Dad)

‘Some of us on this earth are the candles and lanterns, flickering lights reassuringly pointing out the way in the bends within this vast funnel which is life on earth’.

So have you found your purpose?
