Reducing Overwhelm With Jo Dodds

Have you been feeling overwhelmed recently? Well we found just the person who can help with reducing overwhelm. On todays podcast is Jo Dodds who lives all the way down the South Coast. Jo is originally from Sheffield. She moved down to Hampshire when she was 3.


How did you get a job to help people Overwhelm?

Jo has been in business herself for 15 years. She has done various things as many of us do over that time. In 2011, unfortunately she had a seizure in the middle of the night, and was told it was epilepsy. She Googled the symptoms and saw that seizures can be caused by different things. From not eating properly, drinking too much. Not sleeping properly and being under stress. Jo recons that all 4 of them was going on in her life at the time of the seizure. She needed to sort herself out. Luckily she hasn’t had a seizure since she reduced her overwhelm.

Jo knew she had to change her life and her business so that she wasn’t working stupid hours and not pulling all nighters. She even got to enjoy family occasions now, something she use to frequently miss out on.


Changing Her Life Around

Her background was originally retail and HR in the corporate space. She started a business so she could have a daughter and work from home. In her last job, she was having to commute to London and back. She started a business as a publisher.  having read about it in a magazine, she bought a pack and stared her own magazine. She decided to change her career after her daughter was born. Jo read a book on how to set up WordPress websites. She created her own website and realised she could teach her customers who were local business owners.

Social Media came along and he started specialising in that. So she decided to help small business owners, particularly coaches and consultants to do things differently.


Jo’s Help

Jo’s aim is to get people unstuck by reducing their overwhelm and getting to live more. It’s about feeling better, knowing who you are when you’re running your business, being successful and enjoying the journey. She’s a naturally optimistic person already but loves the fact she gets up every day looking forward to all the things she’s going to do. When she works with her members, they join her membership program. The reason she does it that way is because it’s very individual. What works for some won’t work for others. Fortunately, Jo loves that and thinks she’s good at helping get people aware of what they need to do. Also tailoring to individuals and individualisation is her key strengths. The whole point of that is that we’re all different and you can’t just offer someone a program because it wouldn’t work for everyone. Everyones different.
