Own It! 197 | Richard Pettitt: Surprising Your Clients

Richard Pettitt wanted to be a scriptwriter until he was reminded how much he loves to make people laugh and the value and fun of surprising your clients.

Nicola’s been out and about with brother Alex, and musing on how clever she is having completed one of her current projects in just three weeks.

Judith returned from Luton via Trowbridge and met a surprising couple for whom she’s housesitting in October, one half of which has had over half a million hits to his guitar playing on YouTube.

What’s Fuelled Their Fire?

Judith has been planning her future during a couple of sleepless nights and it was well worth it as her visions have gone from blurry to much clearer.

Nicola is discovering the joys of the Hemingway App and she and J debate where to put a full stop!

Focus Of The Week

Richard Pettitt originally wanted to be a scriptwriter until Morning Pages reminded him how much he loves to make people laugh with his jokes, videos and cartoons/webcomics Oojo and Bink, Drizzle Cake and Think vs Say. He talks to Judith and Nicola about taking yourself lightly and both vow to do more of that, and he reminds the listener about the value and fun of surprising your clients.

Words of the Week

Nicola chooses Cloudy and Judith picks Assertiveness.

Project Updates

Nicola reports that Own It! has risen to #73 in the iTunes chart and is keeping company with some very big players. Judith consults with Nicola about how best to celebrate their 200 th show, coming up in just three weeks’ time.

Who or What’s Impressed?

Nicola loves Glenn Warner and the tales of his life on a narrowboat with wife Lisa. This week Glenn completes the new bathroom. A Life Full of Meaning – subscribe on YouTube.

Judith is impressed by the two guys, Kevin and Mike, who created Instagram eight years ago, sold it to Facebook two years later and this week left to create something new. Of course they did. And she’s also discovered Facebook Watch, live streaming free TV straight from FB.
