Jane Aireton is an English author with the book series titled “Work it out in a week” with different topics such as money, weight loss, and even Christmas.
I had the honor of interviewing Miss Jane Aireton about her book series and philosophy of “Work it out in a Week”. Talking with me from the Canary Islands. Even though I was suffering from a serious head cold Jane’s energy was enough to give me some temporary relief.
Jane’s journey began after the age of 60 years old by creating workbooks to get unstuck. Jane’s approach to writing was to simply ask honest questions about her life. Her ponder place is here garden where she identified her “Money Monster” was keeping her up at night. After identifying the root of the problem, then the task of solving the problem was easy. This is where Jane and I have a common bond as I listed in my book “The Journey of One” you must have conversations with yourself and be honest with the answers.
Once Jane solved the Money Monster problem other area requiring attention became easy to navigate. Such as work it out in a week with your weight, and Christmas. As she stated Christmas can be a problem for many women with families because there is so much to do in so little time. Here basic premise, is to formulate a plan and stick to it.
One topic that was not intended was tiny houses and how Americans have started a moment that is spreading around the world.
Jane’s latest book is focused on New Years resolutions and how we need to make promises we just can’t keep. The key to Jane’s theory is learning to focus on Baby Steps. Please have a listen and enjoy.

Transcription of the Podcast:
Emmitt Muckles: today on the billionaire lifestyle podcast my interview with Jane Aireton. She has a series of books that you can acquire on amazon called working out in a week.
Whether it be your weight or finances or Christmas, you can work it out the week or at least begin. Now you have to forgive me because I had a really long day and I went to bed at four o’clock in the morning and woke up really early to do this podcast. I’m very sorry if my voice is a little bit ragged but the information and the inspiration is awesome so stay tunes.
Ladies and gentleman welcome to the billionaire lifestyle podcast and his beautiful woman who is hanging out over and England, and I forgot the name of the island, it’s not a canary islands is it?
Jane Aireton: it’s the channel
Emmitt Muckles: their you go it’s the channel islands so this is Jane Aireton and she has written several books over the last 18 months that dictate some changes in your life that you can apply in a short amount of time which is freaking awesome because you, know people say oh lose weight 90 days lose weight in a year no she’s got it work it out in a week this is awesome thing and that’s what people need.
How are you doing Jane?
Jane Aireton::: Well it’s really exciting! I started off by writing a book called to say success at 60 Plus with a friend of mine and I really got hooked. Because a lot of people are not fulfilling their potential and my background is a nurse and I saw a lot of people who are physically ill just because they felt trapped. Have you ever felt trapped.
Emmitt Muckles: I did but I’m not married to her anymore.
Jane Aireton::: Alright and people do get trapped not only by their partners but by the second circumstances, by money, by all kinds of things and if you feel trapped the next thing is that you become ill. So I looked at ways of untrapping yourself and I’m one of these people who like to get to grips and do things get a result. I think it’s really important to empower people to do this so work it out in a week was a really good idea. I thought, and i started off with money because I’m one of those people that awakes at three o’clock in the morning and start worrying.
Emmitt Muckles: that’s not good.
Jane Aireton::: I noticed from your stuff on your Facebook page and so on, that you’re saying that money isn’t the be all end all but we need a certain amount and but what you know what you said and I completely agree with is what you need anyway I so. I thought i’d like to go out and sit in my garden shed. Because they’re I won’t get disturbed and I would think about this matter. how I’m reacting to me money. I’m an intelligent woman, I like this. so I went out there and I started thinking about my attitudes to money and how much I needed and exactly what you’d be talking about and i discovered that was money monster there that. that was the one that came at three o’clock in the morning.
I thought I don’t need is really don’t need this. what I’ve got to do is to sit down and work out a way to so that like because it’s sort of cyclical thing isn’t it. that you worry about it and then you’re so worried that you don’t look at your bank statement and it gets worse and worse. so i went right back to basics. I’m going on about it but I worked it out in a week and I started solving the problem so that’s what we did with one worry. then I thought about Christmas, and women tend to worry about Christmas because there’s so much to be done again. start at the beginning think about baby steps. think about the things you’ve got to do. write them all down get I did lots of ideas in my books and my work it out in the week Christmas book lots of recipes so that people don’t have to think, they can just sit down work out a plan and do it. and what to do with the people that come over for Christmas that you’d rather they didn’t.
Emmitt Muckles: that’s awesome that’s really awesome you know one of the things about life is that most people don’t realize that is literally your journey and sometimes you have to look down at the road and plan where your next step is and that’s what I really liked about your books. what made you get to the point where you said I am going to concretely put this down and this is going to be my thing to share with the world. because we all have something awesome to share. most people don’t realize it and that could be just your calling card your passion. how did you just say screw it I’m gonna do it?
Jane Aireton:well it was I think, it goes back to my first book which was basically a workbook and in that book I, this is one that I did this is Success at 60 Plus and i worked as a workbook and I just asked lots and lots of questions. first of all the work, the most important thing is making happiness a priority in your life. and I think you would completely agree with that having read about you. and that if you but just put happiness there you can choose to be happy under any circumstances at any moment in time and don’t make other people, don’t let other people tell you otherwise, so then you’ve made happened is a priority. my next question was who are you what sort of person are you and a lot of people don’t actually sit down and really work out the sort of person they are.
Emmitt Muckles: That’s true
Jane Aireton::: telling people i would say start where you are not where you’d like to be because if you start where you’d like to be you’re not living in the real world. so start where you are. where are you going how can you get to where you want to go if you don’t know where that is. so that’s really important. and where are you now? and then you can put a plan together. so that’s where I started really looking at what i wanted and i wanted to write. I spent 15 years looking after all my old relations, I killed them all off, and now I’ve got some time I mean I was honored and privileged to look after them but you know at the end of the day when it’s all done and dusted and done with you it’s up to you to then take the reins and get to where you want to be so that’s where I started.
Emmitt Muckles: so let me ask you this question with your early success with children’s television or you were involved with children’s television that lend itself to you being able to transition to what you do today?
Jane Aireton: Yes I think it did I just really enjoy doing that with Elizibeth Beresford who will use to create The Wombles. Do you know about will The Wombles in America?
Emmitt Muckles: we don’t, i don’t but I’m I’m 50 years old so it it might have been a different time
Jane Aireton::: ya might be um I’m not that old, yes well that little creatures that go around and picking up rubbish and it was in the days before, ever you know the green thing and then people went aware, and and so there was a it was a very famous thing in the UK and so we work together and yes it would I’ve always wanted to empower people and in that we would we choose a character cool but the bad and about some quite an endangered species in the UK what about him in America
Emmitt Muckles: uh America’s a little crazy at the moment is crazy and calm at the same time
Jane Aireton: of bats you know the bat yam we are bats are pretty
Emmitt Muckles: I don’t think they’re endangered because actually people make nests for them here.
Jane Aireton: alright yes we’ve got some bad boxes as well so what yes I so yes I’m always interested in all those sort of things. so yes the it was interesting early on to do the children’s television program and get that off the ground I used to travel around London with a six foot bat.
Emmitt Muckles: Right, I have a question for you because I couldn’t figure it out what is complementary therapy?
Jane Aireton: ah well mainstream therapy is like the doctors giving you chemical medicine but there are all kinds of other ways that you can solve problems using the energy system. do you have acupuncture in the state?
Emmitt Muckles: oh yeah, so we call it homeopathic here
Jane Aireton: well there is homeopathy, there’s acupuncture I use vibrational therapy there’s lots of other ways of dealing with it in ways that are not intrusive and they don’t have side effects so that’s what i’m interested in
Emmitt Muckles: so you’re referring to Reiki as well
Jane Aireton: oh absolutely yes that’s that’s a very. very powerful moment method of healing yeah Emmitt Muckles: it was just my own ignorance I’ve never heard of it it referred to as complementary therapy and i said to myself i’ll ask her because you’re a very interesting person and I was just looking at all the things you’ve done. and you are like you and I are kindred spirits where we’re always looking for the next thing for us to learn it to do which I found so awesome with just looking at your books looking at your website and your blog so i have a question how can people contact you to find out what you’re doing and about your books.
Jane Aireton: well thank you that I’ve got a website. which is success spell as s u double C, how you pronounce power spell success you know 60 in in figures and plus written plus dot-com so that success 60-plus dot-com that’s my website. and i’m at success is 60-plus on Twitter and so yes people do that and if they want to look at my books work it out in a week is a nice way of remembering it you can stick that into a Amazon other in the UK or in America so yeah that that’s where my books are but I’m just so excited to be able to talk to somebody in America when i’m sitting on a little rock in the middle of the English Channel/ I just think that’s awesome and to connect and i love the enthusiasm that come from the Americans I’ve met.
Emmitt Muckles: Really
Jane Aireton:yes, I love Americans, I think they are they grabbed the knife by the scruff of the neck and they really enjoy least one that i have, and i know that you have because of the way that you’ve you know you’ve got this going and um you’ve got a good lot of interest in the States for Billionaire LifeStyle?
Emmitt Muckles: it’s it it’s taken about a year for me to get the ideology together to get my elevator speech together because I’m kind of all over the place and I had to narrow everything down and figure out the the path that I wanted to go I want to figure out my journey so I’ve started this journey and one thing is I feel with my whole heart. you have to help people you have to be there for someone and for me to reach out to people like you who are doing great things you know in your own life that’s worth billions to me. and then are any fruit it bares from there I’m good I’m happy and I’m healthy wealthy and wise
Jane Aireton:: well I love that and I loved the fact that you’ve got really interesting people I’ve been listening to some of the podcast and you have some very interesting people. with it so is Zosso” and i had to laugh because he was talking about a small town with 40,000 people on our island we we have 1600 people what
Emmitt Muckles: well that’s the city from where i live i live in this small Indiana town and I moved from a major much metropolitan areas Detroit Michigan and i moved to this really we call it downtown Disney like John Cougar Mellencamp talks about i was born in a small town this is a small town everyone knows everyone.
Jane Aireton::: 40,000 huge so we all do know each other on the island that’s for sure
Emmitt Muckles: yeah yeah yeah but uh I want to ask the use of other things as well so where is Cornwall to yank like me ?
Jane Aireton: Cornwall is in the southwest of England and that’s where my boys live well they are men. now they got children of their own but, now that’s quite interesting because i want to go over and I want to spend part of the year near then and there is a movement that has come from the United States to the UK which is tiny houses
Emmitt Muckles: yes it is so awesome
Jane Aireton: and i’m so excited about this and I’m going to build one next year because the poor boys that means i can follow them wherever they go. you seen mark my tiny house on wheels but i love this idea because in America we always thinking from the UK that the
Americans have everything bigger than everybody else but now you’ve got things that are smaller than everyone else and what really struck me when I looked at the tiny house idea was that the people who were who were building tiny houses we’re not doing it because they didn’t have the money but because they wanted to spend time doing other things other than looking after their real estate and that resonates with me so well the and I and you know just reducing the number of possessions you have and that fits in with your business about the millionaire lifestyle and that life isn’t about what you have it’s what you gave.
Emmitt Muckles: you know my wife who is 17 years younger than I, she’s so emotionally wise it’s beyond belief and one of the things she always says to me, she says it’s about she’s like enjoy experience. it pay for experiences not things, she’s like you pay for the things you need. don’t pay for just the things you want. pay for the experience you have to you know that’s what life is about. is the experience and more people understood it’s about the experience and if people looked at Maslow’s hierarchy of needs they’ll
Jane Aireton::: Absolutely
Emmitt Muckles: they would just really understand the billionaire lifestyle in a nutshell.
Jane Aireton: Brilliant well i haven’t talk about my latest book yet which is about at about New year’s resolutions and that to me is it’s be it was the most difficult one to write and it was also the most interesting because a lot of us make new year’s resolutions and most of us don’t keep them so i wanted to look at why we didn’t keep them and so often we say oh well i’m not going to bother because I can’t do it well the answer is you can so in a nutshell. first of all I looked at if you’re going to say, when you mentioned about losing weight, if you just started a diet today you know lettuce leaves in a glass of water or fail. what you have to do is going to gradually but do tiny little baby steps, so reduce your portion size and then you can start and do the next step which is maybe having shakes or doing something different or you might be doing juicing or whatever like up so you did say that I said that you could lose all your weight in a week that isn’t quite correct if you did be even a trial but in actual fact if you take your if you take on new year’s resolution baby steps you get there. now the other thing that was an American i can’t remember his name but he had this really good idea of a chain and every day if you put something if you’re doing weight-loss if you do what you set out to do that day you put a chain on your calendar for that day a link and then the next day you put another link when you do it and you really don’t want to fail because you don’t want to break that chain every day you put a link on it and if you live what you want to do with something you already do for example running I’ve taken up running bit late tonight but I’m taking it out and so what i do now is when I get out I put my running shoes on we won’t have to get up we all have to choose on if you put running shoes on you look a bit stupid if you’re not going running, so what do you do you go running then you come back to take months and you put your link on the calendar, and I’ve got this link going and I really really don’t want to break it, and that’s a brilliant way of getting where you want to go
Emmitt Muckles:that is true
Jane Aireton:and the other interesting thing that I discovered was the willpower we say we haven’t got any willpower well actually did you know where your willpower is in your brain know we’re behind your forehead in your preform top yeah that’s right prefrontal cortex of the brain and it’s really interesting because its best in the morning. because that prefrontal cortex does all kinds of other things during the day short-term memory and all kinds of other things are going on and we’ll power gets pushed and pushed the end of the line . so it’s really nice to think well I actually do have a will power if i use it first thing in the morning to get those things done i’ll get them done and it’s so true because if you just set up, people say to me oh I dont have any willpower, well yes you have but you don’t use it at the right time if you leave it to the end of the day there’s no space for it so of course do it first thing in the morning and you got it done don’t you think that’s that is brilliant
Emmitt Muckles : Yes I do, because when I do things first thing in the morning, first of all its quiet, i can focus and i”m right there getting it done, her whether it be lifting weights or writing something down that first thing in the morning that is a good best way to start
Jane Aireton: I bet it wasn’t very good thing fast this morning but most mornings
Emmitt Muckles :yeah I was ya idea i had a couple pints for those of you who don’t know is it had a lot of pint’s actually
Jane Aireton:but then this is the thing you can make that choice you ,you know if you have that choice you know the next morning you won’t be getting runnung but the the day off do you will be so you know
Emmitt Muckles: yeah it’s easy I find it best to get things done in the morning it helps me to actually start today because then i get up with the zest if I know particularly if it’s pre-thought, I think that night before or hey I have something to do anymore it’s just like I have to get up and go to work. well that’s not a good example but when I have something to do that is the best time to make that effort which is in the morning and you’re correct
Jane Aireton:so then there’s some of the things that time be your about mine watching this particular book and
Emmitt Muckles: do you have a copy of it so I could see it?
Jane Aireton: well I haven’t been copied that one but i got the other two they think that the christmas one not well that’s the money one
Emmitt Muckles: so work it out in a week
Jane Aireton: they’re all worked out in the weekend if you go on Amazon then they are they’re all wear and so you’ll get the changing habits because basically new year’s resolutions are changing your habits and it’s and I’ve really proved you I’ve been practicing ready for new year and it really does work and i’m so excited because I was one of these people who made these great claims that out of what i was going to do and I didn’t break it down and do it a bit too time and as you go forward each step you cement your resolve and you get the results .
Emmitt Muckles: so let me ask you something are you on the speaking circuit yet because you have the most charming presentation
Jane Aireton: I’ve done some and the lower well thank you very much indeed
Emmitt Muckles: that’s that’s probably your next area you you can go into because you such a charming person
Jane Aireton: well that’s very nice of you to say that but you know I’ve really enjoyed being interviewed by you because I think that we actually resonate you’ve got this feeling for empowering people and it’s so exciting what happens
Emmitt Muckles: yeah at you know that’s the one thing that if I could convey to people is it’s not about what you can take it’s about what you can give because if you give enough everything that you need will be taken care of.
Emmitt Muckles:I just I just can’t you know express it enough. so Jane what do you have a twitter handle?
Jane Aireton: yes a success at success 60-plus at and the 60 is the number 60 correct that’s right yeah yeah yeah and I love Twitter because it’s so immediate and you’re you’re getting feedback from people all the time and some brilliant really inspirational and motivational people out there to follow, and to the following me and we’re swapping all things all the time, and that you know if you’ve got that going on. I mean if you if you wake up in the morning you turn on the radio and listen to all this negative stuff then that sets your tone for the day if you wake up and you’re empowered your invigorating you as you say if you’ve got a plan for the day and you’re doing things for other people it’s completely different.
Emmitt Muckles: yes, yes, that’s true well I know you have a lot to do today what I want to do is I want to give you this invitation my door is always open to you so if you come to America or you just want to talk because I will record every word. the invitations right there for you you know
Jane Aireton: that’s the nicest thing that’s happened to me today and i’m on the end of my day so that says something thank you so much and I have enjoyed this so much that’s awesome thank you so much frankly, i meeting you Emmitt
Emmitt Muckles: thank you
Jane Aireton: have an awesome day and you by
