Show Notes:

I love routine. Even when it comes to going on vacation, it can really throw me off my game when I break away from my daily habits. But when you’re setting big goals and constantly striving for more, you can’t let those things hold you back from living your life. It’s time to question your rituals and routines and see if you can figure out how to do that thing you’ve been putting off while still accomplishing what you set out to do.

762. This Superpower Will Bring You More CHOICES in Life

  • Why being nimble is a superpower

  • Having conversations with your partner

Show Notes:

One superpower that has always served us well over our lifetimes is being nimble. It’s led to windfalls, business success, healthy relationships, and more. When you see someone who, from the outside, appears to always be winning, what you’re really seeing is someone who’s not afraid to adapt when their idea is failing.

So why is being nimble so hard for people? Because it’s not comfortable. You have to take a lot of risks and make a lot of gambles in order to stay nimble. When you truly embrace being nimble, it actually takes the risk out of those gambles. When your gamble falls through, if you just stay nimble, you’ll move on to the next move quickly.

Being nimble allows you to seize opportunities. If you’re stuck on one way of being for too long, who knows what you could be missing out on? You have to be clear on your long-term vision, make sure everyone affected is on the same page as you, and then take aggressive action to secure the future you want. I promise you, this superpower can make amazing things happen.

Show Notes:

You don’t deserve to deny yourself pleasure and desire in your life. It’s so important to build our lives in a way that constantly gives us joy and pleasure. When you aren’t feeling pleasure in your day to day life, you risk numbing out on short-term dopamine hits that don’t bring us any long-term satisfaction, or you put all of your hopes for pleasure into one thing and just run it into the ground. Spread your pleasure out throughout your life. Stop delaying pleasure for the future and find joy in the moment, whatever you’re doing.

759. The Art of Asking for Help & Getting Over Feeling Burdensome
25:36

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Getting comfortable asking for help
  • When some asks require following up
  • Developing your asking muscle
  • Getting your elevator pitch down
  • Asking for connections
  • Building a network

Show Notes:

Why is it so hard to ask for help? This is a weakness for many people – and there’s so many reasons why that may be. A major part is the fear of bugging people. There’s a difference between knowing how to ask for help and making it feel burdensome. It requires approaching that ask with a certain energy. We’re going to look at how you can go in for that ask without putting the pressure on.

There are two main factors that contribute to getting better at asking:

  1. Do you have your asking muscles developed?
  2. Do you have people to ask?

When you’re going in for an ask, you have to make sure you know what you’re asking. Ask it in a way that doesn’t require follow-up questions. Be clear and concise and don’t waste the person’s time. You only get one shot at this so take your time making sure the question is just right.

Whatever you do, don’t be an “askhole.” That’s someone who asks for advice but doesn’t take any action. If you’re going to ask for help, make sure you are actioning it immediately. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but when people see that you’re the kind of person who puts advice into practice, they’ll be happy to give you more of it.

The second part of this is who you ask. A lot of people are shooting for the stars and asking the biggest names they can think of without having the ability to offer them anything in return. Instead, start with the people within your own network. If you don’t have a network, it’s your job to seek out people online and find them. People with similar goals, interests, or wants as you.

Knowing how to ask and how to build a circle of influence to ask within is going to make your journey as an entrepreneur go so much smoother. Collaboration is the shortcut to success. It is a skill, but it is one worth building.

755. Why You're Not Selling Enough & What You Can Do to Convert Your Audience

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why speeding up the sales process won’t work
  • Building a nurturing sequence
  • Creating a manual exchange

Show Notes:

Let’s talk about something that’s going to help you make more sales. If you own (or aspire to own) a business, if you want to make more money, if you sell anything (and even if you have a job), this advice is for you.

The number one problem we’re seeing people run into in their business is missed launch goals, missed sales goals, or just a complete lack of sales. When we dissect each of these scenarios with our coaching clients, what we’re seeing is this: people are rushing the process. They don’t spend time developing relationships with their audience. There are two ways you can nurture your audience and slow down your process to turn each “no” into a “yes”.

Build a nurturing sequence. Start with “nice to meet you” and lead people into a list that you own – typically an email or text list. Doing that requires them to agree to open up a relationship with you, but that’s just where the work begins. Now you have to earn their trust and develop the relationship. Give them so much value that eventually they’ll realize if this is what you’re giving away for free, what you have behind the paywall must definitely be worth it.

Or you could create a manual exchange. Make sure you show up consistently enough, with enough value in between “nice to meet you” and “would you buy my product?” by creating a private group. You can do this through Clubhouse, by hosting a weekly Zoom call, or Instagram and Facebook Live. When you nurture your audience regularly and recognize them, they will go along with whatever you do.

You may say, “I’m already doing all of this!” and that may be true, but if you aren’t seeing the results you want yet, you’re probably still going too fast. Remain patient and recognize that the marketing game is going to require more from you every day. Give people what they want and need and they will come to trust you. And when they do, that’s when you’ll get the “yes” you’re looking for.

Jodi Katzin asks: “I have worked with a few business coaches and still am having trouble getting that first client! I work so hard on my posts but, with a small following and the algorithm, I don't know how many eyes are actually landing on them, so I get discouraged easily.

752. Do You Have a Hidden Fear of Success? Here's How to Get Past It

Show Notes:

Some of you might have something holding you back that you don’t even know about. It’s deeply rooted in your subconscious and it’s stopping you from achieving what you want in life. That thing is a hidden fear of success. It might sound funny at first, but it’s a very real fear that many people experience. But, how do you squash that fear when you might not even be aware it exists?

The first step to getting over a fear of success is understanding what it is. Deep down, the fear of success is usually just the sum of many micro-fears of change. How will your life change if you succeed? How will it be better — and how will it be worse? The truth is that you will lose some things when you reach your goals, even before, on your journey toward them. Friends may be jealous. Family may question your skill set. You have to weigh these against everything else you stand to gain and have gained already.

There are a few things holding you back:

  • We think that we have unspoken agreements with people that we will always stay the same. But no one stays the same. Even more, you’re not supposed to.
  • Good is the enemy of great. What often holds you back from greatness is the fear of letting go of a life that’s “good enough.”
  • Fear of more work as you become more successful.

It’s possible to work around all of these. More than fear of change, we should be afraid of staying the same. In hindsight, it will be impossible to imagine ever staying in your life the way it was. We should always be growing and adapting.

  • The truths about your network

Show Notes:

All of the answers you are seeking in your business are likely already present in your network. Your network is one of the simplest and most powerful things you can tap into – and you’re not getting enough out of it.

When you run into a problem that you don’t have the answer to on your own, start asking yourself: “Who do I know that might know about this?” If no one comes to mind immediately, dig a little deeper: “Who do I know who I don’t know what they do?” Of all the people in your network, you probably don’t know exactly what skills most of them have.

If you want to truly tap into the power of your network, try this exercise: grab a pen and a sheet of paper, and pull out your phone. Go through your social media friends and ask yourself: “Who is in my network that can help me reach my goals?” Go name by name, down the list, and write down every person who may be a valuable resource for where you want to go. This will instantly make you realize how powerful your network is – as well as give you a list of people to reach out to in order to speed up your journey.

You’re closer to your dreams than you think, but in order to get there you have to become an unapologetic asker.

  • Interrupting our fear programming
  • Helping people write their story

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Self-esteem is a major factor in a person’s success. That doesn’t mean you have to feel good about everything that you do. You just need to have the confidence to try. So much of our self-esteem is shaped in childhood, which makes it especially important to instill that confidence in kids early on. Jack Canfield and Miriam Laundry are both experts on enhancing self-esteem in children (as well as adults). Together, they co-authored the book “I Can Believe in Myself,” which helps children turn the words “I can’t” into “I can!” Whether you have kids and want them to be confident, you struggle with confidence yourself, or you’re interested in writing and publishing a children’s book of your own, these two have a wealth of knowledge that you’re sure to find value in.

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where did the inspiration for this book come from?
  • Can you tell me about your course, helping people write books?
  • What fears do you normally see from people?
  • What was your experience after attending Jack’s event?
  • What do you experience in your life and career right now?
  • What feels important right now?
  • If you could only write one more book, what would it be about?

  • How Corey’s business changed during COVID
  • Struggling with imposter syndrome
  • Learning to play the long game
  • The importance of tapping into your network
  • Getting people enrolled in your vision
  • Growing while maintaining your authenticity

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Corey Phelps is the founder of Cultivate by Corey, a fitness-focused brand offering in-person classes and online courses. When COVID struck, she had to pivot fast and recenter herself, which led to her opening a new brand in her company: the Amplify Her Collective. In this coaching call, we explore the importance of finding mentors, how to build teams that invest in your vision, and extending your reach without sacrificing your core values.

 

Question for Lori:

  • You have had so many accomplishments, from The Bliss Project to your latest endeavor of Lite Pink, which is such an inspiration from the community building aspect and how you have built it from the ground up as a female-funded business. How important was it for you to tap into your network as well as find mentors at each new level to support you, push you, and guide you?
  • What advice can you give on how to step into the CEO leadership role and build a team that is as invested in your vision and mission as you are?
  • I have defined my big ‘why,’ my mission, my core values, and have a proven process. How do I create growth, impact, and reach as many women as possible while maintaining authenticity, integrity, and personal touch as every woman’s success is important to me?

 

Guest Bio:

After 11 years of teaching and coaching women on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle inside the Cultivate by Corey brand, from in-person classes at her studio to online courses and programs, there was something else brewing for Corey. In 2020, when the world shifted in unthinkable ways, so did Corey’s business and priorities. She felt a tap on the shoulder and stepped into the online space in a new way, supporting women in building and growing their businesses. What started as impromptu calls and presentations to a group of women needing support in learning the ins and outs of online business has transformed into a larger mission to support women in creating an unwavering belief in themselves, their capacity to build financial freedom, and having a personal life of their dreams (friends, kids romance all of it).

743. The Importance of Switching Up Your Energy to Reach Your Goals & Evolve to the Next Level
19:56

  • Making yourself a priority
  • Planning for interruptions and making yourself show up
  • The importance of switching up your energy

Show Notes:

This year, we built what we knew we were going to need as a couple. Both of us are diving into new businesses, and we knew that if we didn’t make ourselves a priority, we would end up on the backburner. So we set up a couples’ mastermind where we went on dream date trips and we started tracking what matters most to us. Those simple things have made such a difference in keeping our relationship on the forefront, and that most recent trip completely shifted our energy.

If you need to make sure you’re setting time to do the things that are most important to you, but don’t feel urgent, you need to take these two points to heart:

  • Even if it’s not convenient, schedule time for the interruptions you know are good for you so that you show up.
  • You have to regularly change up your energy or you are going to burn out.

As counterintuitive as it may seem, there are times when stepping away from your business or your work is the best thing you can do for your productivity and inspiration. You need to be changing up your energy to inspire you to do things at a new level. Switching things up doesn’t always feel good at first – in fact, it can feel very uncomfortable. But doing so opens up space for new opportunities.

Routines are powerful, but they can also get you stuck. You have to remind yourself why you are doing what you do, what you are working towards, and what levels there are ahead.

Show Notes:

How do you manage your motivation? Even as naturally motivated people, we still have days where we wake up feeling no motivation to build a business, work out, or do anything. Even if you’re not naturally motivated, that doesn’t mean you won’t see success, and just because you don’t wake up motivated doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to turn things around. Whoever you are, own it, and implement the tools we’re going to share with you to manufacture motivation whenever you need it.

So many things can affect your willpower and motivation: your sleep, what you eat, how much you exercise, or just your levels of stress. There’s so much going on at any given time and you have to take inventory of it all. Try to mitigate the pain points where you can.

The first thing to do every day is shift into gratitude. Ask yourself, “What are three things I’m grateful for and three things I’m excited for?” These can be hard to answer when you’re feeling down or unmotivated, but that’s when answering them is most important.

It’s OK to feel a certain way and shaming yourself for not feeling motivated isn’t helpful. You feel the way you feel, but you can still make choices from that place. Giving up will only make you feel worse in the long term.

You have control over your destiny, over your mood, and over your motivation. Starting off on the wrong track never has to determine your day. Use these tools and get yourself going again.

We all want to be a little braver and there’s nobody better to show us how than Sarah Pendrick.

 

Question Highlights:

  • Can you tell me about your book journey?
  • Would you share a bit of your story that you haven’t before?

  • How do we calm our energy and focus on being enough?

Show Notes:

Questions can be a powerful tool for leveling up in every aspect of your life. As they say: “Ask better questions, get better answers.” We’re going to talk about one question we each use as a tool in order to better our lives and our businesses.

For Chris, his goal is to be as fit as he can be this summer. To make sure he hits this goal, he had to develop some tools. One of those tools was asking himself this question before every decision: “How will this make me feel in one hour?” We make so many decisions hoping for instant gratification, but thinking an hour ahead is just far enough out for you to realize whether it’s something you truly want or something you’ll regret.

My question that I ask myself is: “How can I look at this differently?” We experience discomfort on a daily basis, but we rarely think about why we’re feeling that way or what it might be telling us. Often when we’re feeling fear, it’s actually a sign that we’re in an area with opportunity for expansion and growth. When there’s no problems and no fear, there’s no way we’re ever going to get better.

If you ask yourself these two questions purposefully and intentionally, you will make exponentially better decisions and see a wider set of opportunities. These two questions can change your life.

She also produces and hosts a popular podcast “Live Love Thrive” and just launched a new podcast called “Invest in Her,” to discuss ways to accelerate the funding of women and provide resources and inspiration to our listeners. It features both female founders and funders! It is distributed on Apple, Spotify, iHeart, and wherever you listen to podcasts.

Show Notes:

What do you do when you and someone close to you – a friend, a business partner, a spouse – are in two different seasons? Sometimes you’re going to find yourself working closely with someone who’s in a different mode of life than you, so you’ve got to learn how to make the most of it.

First and foremost: honor whatever season you’re in. Whether you’re in a season of resting or a season of pushing, you are only going to hurt yourself if you fight against it. Those seasons are not going to last forever, so just remember that the best thing you can do for your success is to take care of what you need in the moment.

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need. Tying back to that first point, if someone asks for something from you that would require you to dishonor your needs, you need to make that clear. In return, ask for what you need. Find some common ground, make your needs clear, and be willing to take different approaches to get where you want to go.

You need to make sure that you’re communicating your long-term goals. When you see the overall vision and know that you’re both working towards it, you’ll be more forgiving of the ebb and flow it takes to get there.

You also should find other people in the same season as you. It can get lonely when all of the people near you seem to be in another mode, so seek out those going through the same thing so that you can fuel each other up however you need to.

When you find yourself in different seasons with friends, a romantic partner, or a business partner, it can actually lead to great things. Follow these tips and you can accelerate your season, creating a win-win situation for everyone.

Welcome back to Questionably Awesome! Today, Evans and I answer your questions about finding community and telling your story.

Haley Gray asks: What keeps me up at night, and from building the brand of my dreams, is the lack of community I have. I started my blog 9/2020 and I'm struggling finding my ideal customers and gaining traffic/following. I don’t know what to do.

Annie Rathman asks: How do you tell your story gracefully? I'm going to publish a motivational/self-help book that will detail a lot of my personal experiences and traumas. I know this will upset my family members and friends. How do I mitigate the blow or minimize the pain they experience?

723. The Fastest Way to Manifest What You Want
17:29

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The power of visualization
  • The Circle method
  • How to manifest what you want

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

This manifestation trick is so fast, so easy, and so effective that you won’t believe it actually works. If you’re a visual thinker, this is totally going to change the game for you — even if you’re not, there are ways you can incorporate it into your life in a positive way.

Laura Day, author of “The Circle,” teaches a manifesting method similar to this — but we’ve put our own little spin on it. Here’s how it works… picture a circle in your mind with you at the center. You’re a magnet in the center of your circle. Place other things that you desire for the day in the circle. Feel them in your presence and imagine that you are attracting them to you. Just by putting them in your circle and keeping them in your mind, it will force you to take action. If you’re not a visual thinker, physically draw out a circle and hand-write what you want to attract inside of it.

That’s it! When you picture what you want, you bring it to the forefront of your mind, subconsciously encouraging yourself to take action towards those goals. It’s dead simple; imagine your circle and draw in the life that you want.

721. Facing Your Fears Is the Secret to Growing Your Biz: Coaching Call with Jennifer Parrott of Locks & Mane
32:43

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why Jennifer started Locks & Mane
  • Providing hair for people in cancer treatment
  • Not stopping at “no”
  • Embracing fear
  • Sharing the scrappy stuff

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Jennifer Parrott had struggled with her hair her whole life. She started getting extensions when she was 15 years old but she could never find a product that was all-natural, cost-effective, and non-damaging. She put together a business-plan, but put it on pause when she became pregnant with her son. While on maternity leave, she decided it was now or never and finally took the leap. Fast forward to today and she’s featured in several national retailers and still expanding! She asks how to embrace fear and discomfort, and how much she should be sharing online. We also talk about how her experience when her son contracted leukemia led to a whole new, philanthropic side of her business.

 

Questions Asked:

 

  • I know you’ve talked a lot about embracing fear and I completely subscribe to the notion that everything great sits on the other side of our fears. Can you share some tips on how to get through those uncomfortable moments and manage anxiety, as well as how to keep embracing and moving towards the things that scare us the most?
  • I really struggle with how much I should share about my personal and professional life on social media. On one side, I feel like I should keep so much private - especially the really messy stuff (i.e. skirting bankruptcy more times than I’d like to admit, how hard it is to ‘balance’ growing a company, and trying to be a good mom, wife, friend, etc.). On the other hand, I feel like it’s so important to share the bumpy road that it’s been. What are your top tips for building a personal brand? How do you manage to do such an amazing job focusing on your businesses as well as your personal brand?

 

 

Guest Bio:

Jennifer Parrott is a mom of two and the founder of Locks & Mane. Locks & Mane is one of North America’s fastest-growing luxury extension brands, making high-quality extensions fast, safe, and affordable.

Show Notes:

When Chris and I first started our businesses, our capacity to tackle so many things at once was much lower than it is today. You don’t need to load your life up and overwhelm yourself to get better at multitasking. The more you align and discipline yourself in the way that you want, the more expansive your capacity to get things done becomes. Doing so can be difficult — it can be hard, and stressful, and overwhelming — but you can hold so much more on the other side.

Resources:

  • Text PODCAST to 310-496-8363 to get your questions answered on our Q&A segment or get coached on the show!

 

Show Notes:

It can be really hard to break tough news to your partner. When Chris lost his job in 2008, he had to come home and tell me not only that news, but that our finances weren’t in order and we were going to lose everything. It’s one of those moments that scars you — you never forget it.

We’re going to relive one of the hardest moments of our lives because we think there’s value to be had in that moment. It’s less about breaking the news itself and more about assessing where you’re at and deciding what to do with the information you find. Here’s what happened next for us:

Chris came home and told me that we would have to sell our brand new house, our cars, everything, and move into a small apartment. And I responded with two things. First, I said “Then that’s what we have to do.” And second, I said “This will never happen to us again.”

It was then that we decided to enter the knowledge industry. I started teaching online courses with the goal of finding just one hundred women to join me monthly. When that took off, I realized the one thing all these women had in common was that they needed support, so I created The Bliss Project. That led to The Bliss Habit, a way to take that same idea to the people who couldn’t make it to the event.

No matter where you are in your journey, it’s not too late to take control of your future.

Show Notes:

Are you holding dueling desires? It can be so easy to want something on the one hand, but be subconsciously afraid of what happens when we get it on the other. If we don’t get to the root of that disparity, we will constantly be creating and canceling out that thing that we want. Let’s talk about how you can support your dreams without letting fear get in the way.

Mara Casler asks: How do you approach asking for what you want, after you've been told “No”? How long do you wait to ask again?

Elizabeth Johnson asks: How do I negotiate for the salary and benefits (equity in the comp!) that I want/deserve when I have only a handful of years of experience on my side? Sometimes people place a higher value on years of experience over quality of present work! (I'm measurably more valuable than some folks who've been in the biz for more time.)

713. How We Overcame Our Biggest Limiting Beliefs & Stepped Into Our Biggest Dreams
33:15

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • How limiting beliefs are holding you back
  • Dealing with anxiety
  • Falling into comparison
  • Knowing your worth

Show Notes:

Everyone has some limiting beliefs that are holding us back from getting where we want to go. Sometimes the hardest part of getting through your journey is finding a way to move past those beliefs. We are going to share three limiting beliefs each that we’ve had to go through in order to be where we are today.

 

Lori:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks. Every time she would get in front of people she would feel like she couldn’t breathe, starting as far back as 7th grade.
  • Not understanding your worth. It can feel scary to charge what you should when providing a product or service without undercutting yourself. If you’re resentful for the time you’re putting in without compensation then something is out of alignment.
  • Fear of sharing your story. It can be hard when you’re trying to be authentic but you know that sharing details about your life are going to have an impact on other people.

 

Chris:

  • Fear of comparison. When Chris was preparing to launch For the Love of Money, he kept putting it off because he couldn’t stop comparing himself to other brands that were further along. You want to surround yourself with people who motivate you, but you have to be able to step through that fear and do it anyway.
  • Fear of failure. Chris would set big sales goals but worry about the blowback that would come if he didn’t hit them. The irony is that he’s rarely hit the sales goal he set, but that didn’t mean they weren’t successful and still worth doing.
  • Fear of change. This comes along when you are afraid of losing the good life you have in the pursuit of a great life.

Strategy is everywhere. It’s easy to find. But what’s really holding most people back is their belief in their ability to do it. So take a look at the limiting beliefs that are holding you back and tell yourself “This isn’t true.” Only then can you move forward into your highest self.

Show Notes:

We were not always money magnets. In fact, both of us repelled money in different ways for much of our lives. It takes financial motivation AND education in order to both make money and hold onto it. We’re going to go over four things you can do to become a money magnet:

 

  • Clearing out the old to take your power back. When you’re blaming others, or your past, you don’t do the work to take ownership of your future. It’s your choice, alone, to clear out the old, unnecessary thoughts and beliefs holding you back.
  • Decide to become educated and motivated. One of the best ways to do this is through reading books and listening to podcasts — take advantage of free resources.
  • Curate and control your environment. Your environment, meaning the people, places, and propaganda you are surrounded by, have a huge impact on your mindset. The people in your life are either enforcing your dreams or unwittingly sacrificing them.
  • Reinforce your new patterns and beliefs. You need accountability partners. You need to measure what matters. You need to journal your actions and thoughts. Visualize where you want to be.

 

 

Everybody can do these four things. There are no barriers to entry other than doing the work. Follow these to break those old financial habits and become a money magnet.

Nobody has higher expectations for you than the person in the mirror. That self-applied pressure is heavy.

Show Notes:

Welcome back to Questionably Awesome! Today, Evans and I answer your questions about playing small and finding balance.

Cornelia Baum asks: Tips on finding the balance (or I like to say, finding harmony) as you're 'bootstrapping.' I'm at a point in my business where the old way isn't bringing in enough cash flow... partially because of COVID and partially because of my own burnout. I'm so lit up about the direction I'm going and what I'm creating... but constantly caught up in the band aids (side jobs) I've created to pay the bills, rather than focusing on my business and this new direction.

Chrissy Kunkel asks: I have been playing small in my interior design business and recently raised my rate. Where I'm struggling is with comparison. I'm seeing counterparts who have far less experience doing amazing things and really cool projects. I feel like my jobs suck in comparison, and I can't seem to break away from looking and staying in my own lane. How do you stay the course and not feel like you suck all the time? How can you channel this energy to grow instead of setting you back and making you feel inferior and loser-ish?

708. Simple Ways to Create Passive Income
31:35

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The importance of building a passive side hustle
  • The best passive side hustle choice
  • Getting over imposter syndrome
  • Finding free resources

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Every person needs a passive side hustle. This is not negotiable. It’s important to build something that pays you when you’re not working, instead of your income requiring a large  investment of your time on an ongoing basis.

Your financial goal should always be to get to the point where, if one of your income sources disappeared tomorrow, you would not have to change your lifestyle. Most people aren’t there yet, but a passive side hustle — not a busy, time-consuming, expensive side hustle — is the way to get there.

One of the greatest opportunities for creating a passive side hustle right now is course development. The way people want to learn is changing forever. They want to move straight from Point A to Point B, and that’s what courses do for them. They’re not as intensive to build as people think, and once it’s launched, it will start selling while you sleep.

It’s time to take your future into your own hands. The world is too dynamic to rely on just one source of income.

It’s so easy to look around for outside guidance and forget that there’s something in our gut that is telling us what to do.

Resources:

  • Text PODCAST to 310-496-8363 to get your questions answered on our Q&A segment or get coached on the show!

 

Show Notes:

Your business might not be growing right now. That’s alright — we’ve all been there before. That’s why we are especially qualified to help you get unstuck and bring back the growth.

Here are the three reasons your business stops growing, and how to avoid them:

  1. You’re not growing. If you aren’t focusing on your development as a person, you cannot expect your business to continue growing as well.
  2. You’ve stopped filling the pipeline. You cannot stop collecting new audience members. Your existing customers will continue to grow and they will move on. You need to be bringing in new customers all the time.
  3. Your pricing is a race to the bottom. This shows a lack of confidence in your pricing and your product and is not sustainable. A race to the bottom always ends up at the bottom; there’s no profit to be had there.

If you can avoid these three things, you will be able to keep your business growing. If any of these sound familiar to you, it might be your key to getting unstuck.

Once you start taking that regular action you’ll stop feeling the fear as much.

  • The steps to making a transition seamlessly
  • Making the leap to something new

Show Notes:

Let’s talk about pivots! Career pivots, expertise pivots, you name it. The world has changed so quickly over the last year: people are pivoting left and right, whether out of necessity, or inspiration. And you have full permission to pivot. The expectation of staying in the same career or business your entire life is long gone.

While pivoting is always possible and may be the best decision for you or your business, it is not always easy. You will have to stand up and make yourself known for something new. You have to make it real and show up consistently. We’re going to give you the steps to making a successful pivot.

  1. Make an announcement of your pivot: tell people why you are making the change and take them along on the journey to making that decision.
  2. Transition your current audience: mix in some of your old content with some of the new content. You’ll start shifting more and more towards the new content until your old content gets completely phased out.
  3. Map out your path: you will need to transition not only your content but your income. Determine how much income you need to live the life that you want, and calculate when you can make the leap.

You have permission to pivot, you just have to put some planning into how you do it. And when you do, you'll be better off than you ever thought possible.

684. Successful People Do These 5 Things
25:49

  • Collaborating for success
  • Showing up consistently, even when things are hard

 

Resources:

  • Text FAST to 310-421-0416 to get early access to my mastermind and $500 off your enrollment

 

Show Notes:

We’ve worked with many successful people over our careers, and many of them go on to achieve even greater success. Meanwhile, some people continue to struggle in their businesses, never quite reaching their full potential. The thing is that what people struggle with seems to be universal: We hear it all again and again. We’ve identified the common traits that set apart those who succeed from those that struggle.

If you can embrace these five traits of successful entrepreneurs it can quickly shift your results for the better.

 

  • Enthusiasm and passion

 

Enthusiasm doesn’t mean being loud and bubbly in public — though honestly, that can help. What it means is that when you describe your product, when you do your marketing, and when you tell someone what you do, people can feel the passion in you. If it doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t worry: Enthusiasm is a muscle you can build. So get pumping.

 

  • Messy action

 

Time is your most valuable asset. You don’t need to know everything before you start. As long as you have some idea of what you are doing, you can figure out the rest as you go if you are just taking action. And chances are, you’ll learn it even faster.

 

  • Unapologetic asker

 

Many people are so focused on providing value to others. That’s great! But how would you provide value if you never knew what people needed? Let’s flip it around. How great would it make other people feel to know that they are providing you with something you value? That’s right: Fantastic.

 

  • Collaboration

 

Collaboration is the shortcut to success. Collaboration in your business, in your social media, and in your marketing will fast track you to success. Focus on networking and partnerships and help others grow while helping yourself. Instead of looking up to the titans in your industry, look around to the people at your level and you can all level up together.

 

  • Consistency

 

Statistics show that people have to see your offer 7-8 times before deciding to buy from you. With how hard it is to reach people, in order for people to see you enough you need to be taking action daily.

You can learn all of these on your own. You don’t need anything to start doing these things.

So why don’t we think that the power of belief can work just as well with our goals? Spoiler alert: It does.

Show Notes:

When you stop doing the hard stuff, life actually feels harder. It’s not always easy to do the things you need to do to live the life that you want. But if you skip out on the hard stuff, the rest of your life is only going to be harder. Doing it may be the hard part, but the reward makes life easier.

There’s a couple of psychological tricks to help you face a challenging day. One is to block out the impact of how hard it’s going to be and instead focus on how it’s going to feel on the other side. You can also choose to feel grateful for everything you have in your life — including the things that are afforded by those hard things.

You also need to acknowledge the season of life that you are in. Sometimes what you desire is on the other end of doing something that you don’t want to do. If you enjoy personal space but you have a goal that requires you to momentarily give that up, acknowledge it upfront so that you know that this is only temporary and that it will be worth it.

Life is going to get hard. That’s unavoidable. But it’s up to you whether the hard things you do in life lead to an easier life on the other side. Pick the hard you want in life, and don’t let the drive to live easy lead to frustration.

Guest Bio:

An industry leader in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear and apparel, Rebecca Minkoff’s  modern bohemian designs are inspired by strong, confident and powerful women who are drawn towards a  west-meets-east sensibility.  

After developing an affinity for design while in the costume department in high school, Rebecca Minkoff  moved to New York City at age 18 to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer. 

In 2001, Rebecca designed a version of the “I Love New York” t-shirt as part of a five-piece capsule  collection, which appeared on The Tonight Show and became an overnight sensation. 

In 2005, Rebecca designed her first handbag, which she dubbed the “Morning After Bag,” a.k.a. the “M.A.B.”  This iconic bag ignited Rebecca’s career as a handbag designer and inspired her edgy, feminine creations in  the years to come. Rebecca’s success was further enhanced by the support of her brother, the company’s  CEO and co-founder, Uri Minkoff, who helped usher in and pioneer the company’s industry-leading  innovations with technology and fashion. 

After four years of designing statement-making handbags and accessories with her trademark leathers,  studs and hardware, Rebecca returned to her roots of apparel design and introduced her first ready-to-wear  collection in 2009. 

Today, Rebecca Minkoff is a global brand with a wide range of apparel, handbags, footwear, jewelry and  accessories products. In the spring of 2017, Rebecca Minkoff Watches was launched, reimagining the  category through their decidedly downtown, rock-and-roll aesthetic.  

The brand has 3 national retail stores, eight international locations, and is distributed in over 900 stores  worldwide. In 2015, Rebecca Minkoff stores unveiled the first ever “Magic Mirror” technology, where  customers could interact with mirrors installed in the dressing room walls of her store and tap to pick out  additional sizes, colors and styles of clothing. 

In 2011, Rebecca won industry recognition when she was awarded the Breakthrough Designer Award from  the Accessories Council. She is an active member of the CFDA, and supports multiple philanthropies  including Baby2Baby organization. In August of 2017, she was announced as a member of the first-ever New  York State Council on Women and Girls, in the company of other female industry leaders including  Refinery29 founder Christene Barberich, SoulCycle CEO Melanie Whelan and Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert.  Rebecca is dedicated to bringing women together to enact positive change. 

In September of 2018, she established the Female Founder Collective, a network of businesses led by  women who invest in women’s financial power across a socio-economic spectrum by enabling and  empowering female-owned businesses. 

In 2020, Rebecca will launch a diffusion line of children’s clothing called ‘little minkoff”, marking a foray into  designing a truly sustainable and environmentally friendly collection. She will also launch a new name sake  fragrance to be sold at retailers nationwide. 

Rebecca is married to director Gavin Bellour, and they reside in Brooklyn with their three children.

Show Notes:

Are you trying to get things done without going all in?

Don’t allow yourself to be caught in the middle. Not in the middle of drama or a fight but caught in the middle of a commitment with yourself. This doesn’t affect the people who haven’t made a commitment and are doing nothing. It also doesn’t affect the people who are already all-in. It’s for the people that are high potential and working hard for their dreams but a part of them still wants a different life. Maybe you want a better body or a better life but you’re allowing old habits to hold you back.

If you’re finding yourself wanting to change in your life but you’re still stuck in your old ways you need to burn the ships. Up the stakes on your new life so that you have no choice but to keep moving forward. That may mean taking investments in your company so that you have to create a return for your investors. Doing extreme things in your life requires extreme action.

669. 3 Things to Make You Better in Leadership AND Relationships
21:44

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The commonalities between leadership and relationships
  • Giving feedback in the moment
  • Being honest, open, and building trust
  • What gets recognized gets repeated

 

Resources:



Show Notes:

There are some common threads between being a good leader and being a good romantic partner. Nobody is going to be great at either when they’re just starting out — just think back to your first relationship and I’m sure you’ll agree — but with some intentional practice, we can become better leaders and better partners at the same time.

Give feedback in the moment

Nothing is worse than letting a grievance sit and then coming back to it after the other person has moved on. Some people get over things much more quickly than others. If you try to bring something up later, the other person may get confused, defensive, or angry. And small things left unaddressed continue to build up until they become a huge roadblock in your relationship. That can all be avoided by bringing it up in the moment.

Being honest, open, and building trust

Building off of that last point, giving feedback in the moment is what is going to make people learn to trust you. Being honest also empowers other people around you to open up and be their best, and that is the sign of a good relationship in business AND life.

What gets recognized gets repeated

When you see the kind of behavior you want, you have to work to recognize it in a way that acknowledges the other person. This will help that behavior stick and give further clarity to the types of behaviors you want. This also opens the trust door for feedback and makes it easier to breach the conversation around what can be improved.

If you take in these three tips, you’re going to make it a lot of the way towards being great in both leadership AND relationships.

Guest Bio:

Jessica Zweig is the CEO of the SimplyBe. Agency, a premier personal branding firm based in Chicago, serving clients across the globe. Named a “Personal Branding Expert” by Forbes, a Top Digital Marketer To Watch by INC, and honored with the Gold and Silver Stevie® Award for “Female Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2018 and 2019, Jessica facilitates sold-out workshops and speaks on the power of personal branding to corporations including Google, Salesforce, Virgin, Nike, Motorola, Red Bull, and Bank of America.

After growing up in Highland Park, IL, and attending the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Jessica co-founded CheekyChicago, one of the premier lifestyle magazines in Chicago. The website was a huge success, and although Jessica was known as a Top 10 Chicago “It” Girl, behind the scenes her life was far from perfect. The website began to lose money, and Jessica’s relationship with her co-founder turned toxic, but she still strove to maintain the façade of success. After overdrafting her checking account and unable to pay her cell phone bill, Jessica realized she wasn’t being her authentic self. Instead, she was operating from a place of fear which prevented her from true success. This revelation led Jessica to found her own company, SimplyBe. Agency, in 2014.  

At SimplyBe., Jessica and her team work with corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and creatives to become recognized industry experts and thought leaders. SimplyBe works with clients including Heineken, Morningstar, Blackstone, Mars, Vishen Lakhiani, Jason Rosenthal, Andrea Levoff, Larry Jordan, and many more to successfully develop their personal brands while highlighting their greatest business asset: their authenticity. Her business provides customized branding, marketing, and creative services with an emphasis on core values like kindness, truth, service, and of course, authenticity. 

Jessica believes authenticity is the key to true success, and that being yourself opens up a new world of empowerment that’s not just about how much money you’re making. She’s also on a mission to debunk the perception that personal branding is an act of vanity; instead, when done right, personal branding is an act of service, a social responsibility, and a positive investment toward a positive future. 

Jessica has brought her life-changing and trademarked methodology to clients around the world, taking many from unknown experts to recognized thought leaders. In her free time, she loves traveling, meditating, journaling, working out, and reading. She is involved with multiple charities including the Humane Society, The Human Rights Campaign, I Grow Chicago, Black Lives Matter, and more. Jessica currently lives in Chicago with her husband and two dogs.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Being in rooms with people that call you up
  • Choosing discomfort
  • Imagining the pain of staying in your comfort zone
  • Picturing the reward for breaking the pattern

Show Notes:

You are always going to be uncomfortable for one of two reasons: you’re either leaving your comfort zone or you are staying in it too long. They both create discomfort, so which would you rather choose? Staying in your comfort zone never creates the result that you want; you don’t grow, and still end up experiencing pain when the universe decides it’s time to wake you up. Or, you can choose to leave your comfort zone on purpose and move through the discomfort to reach the next level — you’re going to be uncomfortable either way, so you might as well have something to show for it.

Jayde Nicole blows my mind and rocks my world. She started out as a model and actress and quickly figured out that she was very business savvy. But when she started investing in different businesses, she wasn’t taken very seriously — and when that finally hit a tipping point, she decided to start her own company. Today, she’s one of the owners and founders of Sugar Taco, a vegan restaurant that is completely woman-owned. She is such a visionary, and the way she thinks is going to rock your world.

  • How did you navigate the challenge of getting your voice heard?
  • What are the takeaways that were painful in the moment but paid off?
  • How did the relationships you built come to fruition later on?

Jayde seeks to educate people on the seriousness of protecting our environment, our oceans and the animals we share this planet with.

Jayde created her dog rescue, EDL Foundation in 2013 but her love of all animals has been with her for her entire life. At the age of five she informed her mother in a way only a five year old can do, that she would no longer be eating meat, and so began her path to help as many animals as she could. Her move from small-town Port Perry, Ontario to Los Angeles, California, which is overwhelmed with dog shelters, helped to focus her efforts towards helping dogs. EDL seeks to educate people on pet population control, animal adoption, and proper care. They rescue dogs abandoned and neglected at kill shelters as well as homeless and displaced  pets. EDL rehabilitates these dogs and then helps find them their forever homes.

So, we implore you: get your hopes WAY up, dream like it’s going out of style, and make tomorrow exactly what you want it to be.

Amy is a national best-selling author of Cali’flour Kitchen and The Clean Switch.     Her Cali’flour products have won numerous awards, have been featured on the Dr. Oz show, in Food & Beverage Magazine, GQ, and OK! magazine and as one of “Whoopi’s Favorite Things” on The View.  Cali’flour Foods is a two-time Clean Eating magazine award winner.

This year is not going the way that anyone thought it would and we’ve had to let go of some of those expectations, but chances are that this is setting us all up for something better — as long as we can see it and reach for it. So let’s talk about how you can step into who you are meant to be.

Guest Bio:

Lindsey Schwartz is an entrepreneur, top podcast host, and best-selling author. As a sought after speaker, Lindsey travels around the world inspiring women to get out of their own way and into action around their big ideas, and helping them create the careers they’ve always dreamed of.

After seeing numerous women in her life stop short of pursuing their own entrepreneurial dreams because of fear and self-doubt, she saw the need for more honest conversations about the ups & downs of entrepreneurship in order to show women that they don’t have to have it all together to get started. From there, the Powerhouse Women community, annual event, and podcast were born, with the motto that we're not meant to do business (or life) alone!

Show Notes:

The number one question we get from the hundreds of entrepreneurs we have coached over the past several years is “How do I know if my idea would make a good business?”. You can have a ton of good ideas—and they could all be equally good—but you can only ever chase one at a time. You have to invest into one so far and so deep that it has enough momentum to run on its own so you can invest the momentum, the income, and the lessons learned from that into the second idea. We’ve developed a framework for evaluating your ideas to find out which is the right fit before you dedicate your all to it.

On today’s “quickie” episode, I have a special guest, Jenn Kennedy! Two years ago, she didn’t know what the word “entrepreneur” really meant, but she became one through the process of helping people. As she went through the journey of losing weight and improving her health, she documented the whole process and was hit up with questions constantly. Before she knew what she was getting into, she had a coaching business. We’re going to share five tips that entrepreneurs need to do to up-level in their business.

Guest Bio:

Jenn Kennedy is an entrepreneur, coach, speaker, and CEO of Impact to Income. 

Jenn became an entrepreneur simply by helping people. As she documented her health and weight loss journey, women started asking her for help. She started teaching and helping women finally lose weight and heal their relationship with food. Before she knew it, she had a business. As her nutrition coaching business quickly grew, she closed the door to her 8-year career as an elementary teacher and principal in training.

Just over a year later, after watching online coaches struggle with making the money and impact they were meant for, she built Impact to Income. Now, she teaches and mentors coaches and entrepreneurs to grow their impact, scale their income as a result, and live the life they dream of.  

In just a year, she has scaled her business to a half a million dollars and has impacted hundreds of men and women across the world. The foundation of her success continues to be built on her bulletproof mindset, her relentless drive to impact people’s lives, and her daily practice to have more fun.

She fully believes that we are all here to create an impact in the world. She’s on a mission to guide men and women to live in their true personal and financial power and live the life they dream of.

Show Notes:

Whether you love or hate the show Real Housewives, you have definitely heard of it. And that probably means you’ve heard of today’s guest Teddi Mellencamp. We met at a personal development conference a few years ago and I learned about her health program, ALL IN by Teddi. Her current profession as an accountability coach and fitness influencer arose from her desire to help others achieve healthier lifestyles after discovering a tried-and-true way to unleash your best self. We talk about the different things that she’s dealt with while filming the show, the different life challenges we are facing right now, and how you can have a strong backbone and get clear about what’s important right now, and how to keep moving forward no matter what.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How is the pandemic we’re going through now going to affect the way you make decisions moving forward?
  • What are the conversations like in your household?
  • Does your mind compartmentalize all of your accomplishments?
  • What is true for you around purpose or creating purpose?

  • What’s on the other side of being authentic?
  • How do you decide what is good feedback and what isn’t?

Guest Bio:

Born in Bloomington, Indiana and raised in Hilton Head Island, SC, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave made a name for herself at a young age as a competitive equestrian, later incorporating that fierce competitive drive and spirit into her current profession as a much sought out lifestyle and accountability coach, as well as tackling the ups and downs of filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Teddi’s love of horses and the sport of equestrian started at the age of 4, as she soon found herself traveling all around the country to compete in various prestigious horse shows with the venerable Don Stewart Stables. She quickly rose through the ranks to be awarded several national championships, culminating with Teddi winning the stakes class at Madison Square Garden in her final year competing as a Junior.

Teddi relocated to Los Angeles at 17 where she worked at CAA and UTA before returning to her passion of equestrian riding and training. In 2009, she was named World Champion Hunter Rider winner as an emerging professional. But after having kids, Teddi went from professional to amateur and currently competes on horses owned by Balmoral Farms; in 2016 she was named Reserve Champion World Champion Hunter Rider in the Adult Hunters category.

Teddi’s current profession as an accountability coach and fitness influencer arose from her desire to help others achieve healthier lifestyles after discovering a tried-and-true way to unleashing your best self. Struggling with a fluctuating weight her entire life, Teddi found after her second pregnancy and 80lb gain that the weight didn’t come off as easily as it once did. Her riding career had taken a backseat to motherhood and the life/ work balance just wasn’t there for her. She realized that she needed to change her lifestyle, find her passion and really hold herself accountable for her actions to develop a healthier way of living.

All IN by Teddi first started out as Teddi reviewing various fitness classes in the Los Angeles area on Instagram. As she worked to get fit, her following grew and her purpose quickly morphed into Teddi giving fitness advice and urging her followers to become the best versions of themselves possible through self-accountability. While not a certified fitness instructor or nutritionist, Teddi developed a program that gets results for anyone and works with her clients to see them through their struggles to become happier and healthier. All IN has become the next burgeoning lifestyle brand, with Teddi now managing 40 coaches, all of whom have gone through the program, with a roster of clients across the US and Canada in the 1000s and a continual waitlist. More information on All IN can be found at www.allinbyteddi.com

When she’s not being a super mom or changing lives, Teddi can also be seen on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with her third season due to air this spring. After one season on the show, Teddi instantly connected with the fans due to her strength, positive attitude, and willingness to be open and truthful with her struggles. Not only did this help with her growing business, but it also led to Teddi’s rise as a social media influencer, going from 10K Instagram followers to over 500K in the course of a year, and now over 800K.

In 2019 Teddi launched her podcast with iHeartRadio, Teddi Tea Pod. Each episode centers around a different topic that Teddi deep dives into, from open marriages to motherhood and relationships, featuring experts on the subjects to answer all of her burning questions.

Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave, CEO and founder of Skyline Security Management, Inc., live in Los Angeles and have three children: daughter Slate, son Cruz, and in February welcomed a baby girl. Teddi is also a stepmother to Isabella, Arroyave’s daughter from a previous relationship.

Resources:



Show Notes:

The models that we’ve had in the past for loving ourselves, loving our family, and loving our lives have completely changed. In her latest book, “Rethink Love,” Monica Berg challenges everything we know about our belief systems around love and relationships. The more perspective that you can have, the more powerful you are in your life and the more connected you feel.

 

Question Highlights:

  • Are you using a lot of the tools you came up with in your first book?
  • What if people feel like fear is a part of their personality?
  • Why did you focus on love for your latest book?
  • When do you know that it’s time to leave a relationship?
  • How do you move from fear to possibility?

 

Guest Bio:

Monica Berg is a CHANGE JUNKIE and she wants to challenge the way you think about EVERYTHING.

In her first book, FEAR IS NOT AN OPTION, she challenged readers to eradicate fear from their lives. In her latest book, RETHINK LOVE, she uses years of personal experience teaching and counseling to eradicate false belief systems around love and relationships.

Monica is a mother, wife, sister, teacher, and friend, who integrates all that she is into her mission and as Chief Communications Officer of The Kabbalah Centre, she integrates her personal mission with this ancient wisdom.

Monica was born and raised in Louisiana before moving to Los Angeles. At 17, she began studying Kabbalah and knew very quickly that this was her path, eventually leading her to the serendipitous meeting of Michael Berg, her now-husband of 21 years. 

During her teen years, Monica developed an eating disorder that grew into a five-year battle with anorexia and body dysmorphia. With her recovery came a better understanding of the disease and a passion to help others. 

However, it wasn’t until her second child was born that Monica had to reevaluate her own belief system. Her son, Joshua, was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly after his birth, which was life-changing for Monica and her family. The diagnosis led to Monica’s credo, “In change, there is great power,” and the choice to believe in the beauty and potential of who her son could become and subsequently who she could become. 

Monica aims to challenge people and encourages them to reframe what they think they know and she’s seen the results of rethinking first hand. Monica learns from her students as often as they from her. “I’m inspired by everyone that I come into contact with,” Monica says, “Everyone has something valuable to share and we can derive meaning from each encounter.”

When she’s not writing, lecturing, or working with students at the centre, Monica contributes her time and voice to Habitat for Humanity and Something For Kelly. While she is passionate about helping all people feel empowered, she is especially committed to organizations that support women, particularly those with a mission focused on overcoming eating disorders.

Monica currently resides in New York City with her husband Michael and their children David, Joshua, Miriam, and Abigail.  Her second book, Rethink Love,  will be out on February 11, 2020.
