Hey there, my fabulous listener, welcome to episode 223 of the Small Business Made Simple Podcast. 

Thank you for lending me your ears today – I know you have lots of choices, so I sincerely appreciate me being one of them!

If you’re enjoying this podcast – I’d love you to take a screen shot and share it on your socials and tag me in it.  How cool would that be!

Don’t forget you can get the show notes for this podcast at

Just before I get into this week’s episode – remember a few months/weeks back I asked you to fill in a survey for my Big Small Business Survey 2022?  Well the results are in and if you’re keen to find out what we found out by doing the survey, you can download the preliminary results here: – no pressure, just if you’re keen.

If you’re listening to this in real time, the end is nigh … the last few days of 2022 are playing out!

I hope your Christmas Day was wonderful – in my family we then front up to a few birthdays (including my eldest) before the New Year hits – it keeps the festive season going!

Traditionally this podcast isn’t long – so I intend to keep the tradition going. You’re either too busy or too relaxed right?

I, again, traditionally choose a saying to chat briefly about to see the year out.  This year I’ve chosen an oldie but a goodie

You can have excuses or results –  not both – YOUR CHOICE.

I think this one is something we seriously need to carry into 2023.

It’s not going to be roses and butterflies like of year.  It’s going to be rough economically; consumer confidence will be down and cost of living up.

BUT you can either use all those things and more as excuses for not getting the results you want or you can change, pivot, invest in yourself and platforms, learn more, do more strategic things, do less of what isn’t working now and do more of what is, and get RESULTS.

I run a multi-million dollar e-commerce platform that consists of a community in the hundreds of thousands and I can tell you the most successful business owners on our platform DO NOT blame the platform for no sales or admin for no sales or Facebook for no sales – NO they dig in, pivot, change, learn, collaborate, partner up, mix things up and get results – no matter how tough.

So, when you look back at your results for 2022 do you make excuses – blame others, blame your tools?

It’s ok if you do – after all it’s your choice.  You can have excuses or results – the choice is yours.

My suggestion, come to the show notes at and click the downloadable link to a quote graphic with this quote on it – print it out or make it your home screen and make it your 2023 business mantra.

(Yes you can make it your brand colours in Canva too!)

Happy new year my friend.  Thank you for supporting my podcast by listening in.  As a new years gift, I would love you to go and leave a rating and review, if that’s possible, where you listen – like in Apple Podcasts.  I would be SO appreciative.

See you on the other side of the year!

Big Podcasting Love, and

……..remember small business peep, as my opening song says, there’s no point in dreaming small!
