About This Episode

My guest this week is known as The Focus Guru, and with good reason. She is a master of Time Management and helps people to focus their time and attention on what matters most for them.

Join us as Rachael and I explore, amongst other things, –

  • How Rachael became The Focus Guru
  • Squirrels!
  • How long it takes to recover from a distraction
  • Why Pomodoro Technique may not actually be that good
  • How to get 95% of your clients paying without hassle
  • Books

and a whole lot more.

As always, you can listen to this episode via the audio above, or if you prefer to watch us having a chat then there’s the video version of it  below.


Pattreon-exclusive Bonus Content

Not only is Rachael very enthusiastic about time management and avoiding distractions, as we discovered in our main interview, Rachael also plays a couple of very interesting and unusual instruments – the Theremin and the Laser Harp.

In this Patreon-exclusive bonus video for my supporters, Rachael discusses both instruments in turn, giving us a fascinating glimpse (she doesn’t play them in this video, for that you need to check our Rachael directly!)

If you are not already a supporter, you can join now at  and get immediate access to Rachael’s informative explanation (as well as loads of other bonus videos from past guests ad more).

About My Guest

Rachael lives in Macclesfield, Cheshire with her husband and dog Leo. She left school with no “A” Levels, had no idea what to do she – loved maths so tried accountancy. This didn’t work out, so she went out cold calling selling advertising in Building Control Handbooks. Loved the calling, hated the selling. Found out about Credit Control – Calling people, problem solving and maths – Brilliant!?

Rachael went on to become a Corporate Credit Control Trainer, training herself into redundancy 4 times. After the 4th time, Rachael decided her motivation was helping small businesses get better, not big businesses get richer.

So in 2013 she founded her company helping business owners to get control of their time through reviewing their processes, software and systems.
