You Never Start from Zero: You Have What It Takes To Succeed And Mentoring Can Help Unlock Your Potential

At Talked About Marketing, we understand that the road to personal and professional growth can sometimes become unclear.

Whether you’re a business owner or a leader feeling stuck, our mentoring services, led by David Olney, are designed to guide you towards unlocking your full potential.

Our approach is rooted in the belief that we all possess untapped resources and experiences, which is why our mentoring revolves around the idea that you never start from zero.

By drawing on your past successes, skills, and experiences, David will help you rediscover your innate strengths and apply them to new challenges.

"When you decrease your focus on what is wrong (deficit-based thinking) and increase your focus on what is right (Asset-Based Thinking), you build enthusiasm and energy, strengthen relationships, and move people and productivity to the next level.."

Our mentoring sessions are more than just conversations; they are a journey towards empowerment. David’s method, honed over years of training people in complex problem-solving, is personalised to your unique situation.

By understanding your past achievements and current skills, he crafts a tailored strategy to overcome anxiety and procrastination, to sett you on a path to success.

Empowerment through Proven Strategies

David’s mentoring is informed by leading research and methodologies, as seen in Kathryn D. Cramer’s Lead Positive and other influential works.

These insights form the foundation of his toolkit, equipping you with the strategies to decrease anxiety, increase performance, and approach new tasks with confidence.

Our sessions focus on aligning your goals with actionable steps. You’ll learn to apply:

  • Reference Class Forecasting
  • Skill acquisition techniques from “The Talent Code” and “Atomic Habits”
  • Methods for achieving Strategic Alignment and Empowered Action

This structured approach ensures that every step you take is calculated and effective.

"Bad habits repeat themselves again and again, not because you don’t want to change but because you have the wrong system for change ... You do not rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems."

Social Proof and Trusted Guidance

David’s mentoring also incorporates the concept of Social Proof, as explained by Robert Cialdini.

By sharing your plans with a trusted mentor like David, you gain not only validation but also constructive feedback, further reducing anxiety and bolstering your confidence.

"The principle of social proof says so: The greater the number of people who find any idea correct, the more the idea will be correct."

Slowly But Surely

Undertaking mentoring with David can feel a bit like exploring a dark and unfamiliar place. You will start slowly, bump into a few things, but as you stop, think, discuss, and start again, you will gradually develop a better mental map for helping you navigate the office or relationships faster and with more confidence.

You will be learning new skills, that practice will make better.

“Although talent feels and looks predestined, in fact we have a good deal of control over what skills we develop, and we have more potential than we might ever presume to guess.”

Take the Next Step

Remember, you are unique, but your challenges aren’t.

David Olney is here to confirm you’re on the right track or offer advice to steer you in the right direction.

Let’s embark on this journey together!

"Asset-based thinking is looking at yourself and the world through the eyes of what’s working, what strengths are present, what the potentials are. Deficit-based thinking is looking at yourself and the world through what’s not working, what’s wrong, the gaps. When we focus primarily on the deficits, it holds us back. We may be able to correct the mistake, but we’ve lost the opportunity. There are many people who are capable of asset-based thinking. They just have to be introduced to it. It becomes an intentional way for you to navigate through your day."
