Hello, my name is Naomi Jane and...

... I am the Founder of A Life Less Ordinary Wanted.

Here is my video application for the upcoming 2017 BBC Expert Women Masterclass.

It's the first time I've attempted the company 'elevator pitch' to camera. I had to also share an idea for a story I'd be interested in the BBC running linked to my area of work.

It's rough, I'm a bit repetitive, you can hear some scallywags singing in the background and I don't say everything I wanted to. But it's done!

"Done is better than perfect." - Sheryl Sandberg

As confident as I am speaking on stage in front of a room with an audience of 100s, it's a different kettle of fish speaking to a tiny camera lens (though having a good friend - thanks Lyande - on the other side of the machinery totally helped!).

One of my 2016 goals was to start recording short videos on YouTube to share coaching tips and what works well with my clients, to a wider audience. I didn't achieve this goal. In fact, I put it off! I was nervous about how my wonky jaw, hyperactive eyebrows and South London accent would be perceived. I was scared that I wouldn't live up to expectations. Anyway, I've spent some time building several bridges to get over myself and here we are!

The first video is now up, as is another that I recorded on intimacy back in December 2015 (don't judge the excess eyebrow pencil please). So if you'd like to see that plus be the first to know when I upload new videos, you can subscribe to my new YouTube channel here.

All my upcoming videos will be short and sweet (between 1-2 minutes) sharing how best to achieve your goals and build a business and / or life that you love. If there is anything specific you'd like me to cover, please let me know!

Finally, what goal have you been putting off that you would really like to move forwards with? What small step in the right direction can you take this week? If you need some help, you can always book a complimentary coaching consultation with me to see how I can help you make the progress you want.
