812. Psychotherapist Terri Cole On Boundaries & Its Relationship To Codependency, How To Stop Saying Yes And Creating Your Proactive Boundary Plan
59:41

Terri is a licensed psychotherapist, relationship expert, business owner, and author. Over her long and varied career, she has helped her clients repair disordered, or in some cases, nonexistent boundaries. It can be intimidating to create limits and let go of relationships that no longer serve us, or as Terri calls them, historical handcuffs. In today’s episode, we discuss sustainable ways to empower yourself through boundaries. We also talk about the benefits of having boundaries, how to slowly add them into your life, and ways to shift your mindset around codependent relationships. Terri also shares details of her new book Boundary Boss: The Essential Guide to Talk True, Be Seen, and (Finally) Live Free, and how her Boundary Bootcamp inspired her to put her findings in writing. 

 

IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:

  • How Terri transitioned from the entertainment industry to psychotherapy 
  • Themes and patterns that Terri sees in her patients struggling with boundary issues 
  • Coping with the fear surrounding setting boundaries 
  • The relationship between codependency and boundaries 
  • How to stop saying ‘yes’ to everything (especially when you want to say ‘no’)
  • The first steps to creating a proactive boundary success plan

While we were staying at an Airbnb in Newport last week, we went on an evening walk and overheard one family say, “we used to go to college, because that’s where the knowledge was”, and it just hit us like a ton of bricks.

  • Following your calling
  • Showing up in faith

Show Notes:

Sometimes it’s hard to see why things are happening for us, in the moment. When we moved to Arizona, it felt like we’d been pulled there. Now that we’re moving away, it’s easy to see the blessings of that journey, even though it didn’t work out. When you feel called to do something, even if it doesn’t make sense, do your best to explore it. The potential upside is so much greater than what you’d find in never trying.

We recently held our couples mastermind group and did some incredible things to push people (and ourselves) out of their comfort zones. But while those experiences were incredible, it was the conversation that came out of it that truly changed lives. One of those conversations led to the realization that, when your business is struggling, you have to stop looking for what you need and start looking for who you need.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Operating without a plan
  • The downside of superstition
  • The importance of speaking what you want into life

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Our life has been chaotic lately. So much has been changing that we’ve been afraid to talk about what we’ve been doing. We just sold our home – and we don’t even have a place to stay yet. We’re usually strong proponents of speaking things into life, so it was very odd that we wouldn’t want to talk about this before today. And maybe, just maybe, that’s why so many of our plans fell through in the first place. In this episode, we talk about manifesting, superstition, accountability, and more.

Show Notes:

Have you ever made an unreasonable request? An ask that you were sure was going to get rejected the moment you put it out there? Sure you have, but there’s a limit to how many times we’re comfortable getting burned. After a while, most of us stop ourselves before the words reach our lips. We think we’ll get ridiculed, shut down, ignored. As a result, opportunities and ideas fall by the wayside.

As you’ll learn in this episode, you can get away with more than you ever thought was possible by being bold and going for the ask, regardless of expectation. Stephanie Burns built her business on what she calls bootscrapping – getting scrappy while bootstrapping, a term and technique that came as a result of making bold unreasonable requests. She teaches us to take that leap. You might be surprised at what can happen.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you get started with making unreasonable requests?
  • How do you cope with what comes up when you go to make those requests?
  • How do you learn how to bring value to people?
  • What are some of the obstacles that come up around making big asks?
  • How do you do your research in order to craft your message?
  • How do you craft a powerful ask but also let people off the hook?

Show Notes:

Things in life don’t always happen on the timeline we’ve envisioned. In fact, they rarely ever do. Sometimes the space between where we are and where we want to be can feel daunting. We may end up filling that space with despair, but if you can stick with your dreams, your goals, and your hopes, they will thrive. It’s in the moments where things are hardest and you feel like throwing in the towel that you will gain the clarity you need to move forward. That gap – that space between who you are and who you are meant to be – needs to be filled with faith.

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Sunny Bonnell is the co-author of Rare Breed: A Guide to Success for the Defiant, Dangerous, and Different. She’s here to break down what being a Rare Breed really means and why companies should look out for them.

Many of us feel different from the norm in one way or another but we learn to suppress those parts of ourselves that don’t fit in. That’s rarely the right move because it’s these differences that give us an edge over everybody else – and businesses are starting to take note of it.

 

Question Highlights:

  • What brought the book about?
  • Can you define “rebellious” for us?
  • How do you know when you go too far as an audacious person?
  • How can businesses better integrate rare breeds into their way of working?

Show Notes:

It took me years to learn that doing everything alone was not a badge of honor, but a shortcut to burnout. We're not supposed to take on everything ourselves, and hoarding responsibilities not only dims your light, but stops others from living their purpose. 

Take this solo episode as your permission slip to lean into your community and delegate those pending items on your to-do list. Imagine if you had more time to create what you were called to do? Now let's make that happen!

Show Notes:

As an entrepreneur, you have to operate on full-time faith. As we continue to run into bump after bump along our journey, we keep moving forward in full faith that what we want, or something better, is going to happen. And that’s how it’s going to have to be as an entrepreneur or as someone with big, massive goals in their life. Things aren’t always going to happen the way you expect them to, but with enough tenacity, grit, and determination, you can make them happen if you just keep pushing and keeping the faith.

Question Highlights:

  • How did you create such an impactful and profound brand?

  • How did you create a business plan and launch your brand?
  • How do you bring miracles into your life?

 

Guest Bio:

“Never leave the house without wearing your sparkling earrings – they will serve as reminders of the light within.” Those are words Lia Valencia Key’s mother would always say to her. Lia lost her mother at an early age but those beautiful words never left Lia’s heart.

Raised in very humble beginnings in a super-impoverished neighborhood of Philadelphia, Lia Valencia Key lived in a homeless shelter with her mother, sister, and brother. Even in such dark times her mom told her, "Your predicament does not determine your destiny." She encouraged Lia to never leave the house without wearing her sparkling earrings because they would serve as reminders of the light within.

Lia went on to rise above her challenges by radiating light, obtaining a bachelor's degree in Business, master's degree in Education, a cosmetology instructor's license, becoming a global hair & makeup artist, receiving a United States patent, and then moving onward to create Valencia Key Jewelry: wearable joy that symbolizes that all things are possible. If you can believe it, you can achieve it! Each piece was created to inspire and unlock the bravery and light within. 

Lia's Valencia Key Jewelry launched on QVC, one of the largest television shopping networks in the world. With the power of believing, Lia went from homelessness to inspiring through jewelry in over 100 million homes. And big dreams continue to come true. Valencia Key Jewelry was recently featured in Oprah Magazine’s 2020 Favorite Things issue, Jamie Kern Lima (founder of IT Cosmetics) brought Lia to appear on The Mel Robbins Show and speak on the stage with Brendon Burchard, Ed Mylett, Dean Graziosi, Tony Robbins, and Lia spoke to over 216k attendees at Jamie Kern Lima’s Becoming Unstoppable Believe It book launch.

Lia reaches back to where she comes from, donating and educating women in homeless shelters about the Keys to Light, and how to rise up out of rough environments. Lia is a living example that all things are possible by rooting yourself in the power of choosing joy and radiating light.

788. This Attachment Could Be Holding You Back!
13:45

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The downside of being attached to permanency
  • Asking “What’s the worst that could happen?”
  • Changing direction when you’re going the wrong way

 

Resources:

  • Visit fastfoundations.com or text “FAST” to 310-421-0416 to learn more about our mastermind program
  • Text “PODCAST” to 310-496-8363 to get your questions answered on our Q&A segment or get coached on the show!

 

Show Notes:

One thing that’s holding you back is an attachment to permanency. Believing that you’re supposed to find a great job and stay with that company forever, or you meet a partner and stay together forever, or you plant roots and stay in the same city forever. When you’re not attached to permanency, you’re allowed to dabble, to experiment, to try new things and see if they are right for you. And it’s only through that experimentation that you find what works best.

When you’re worried that you’re holding yourself back from making decisions because you feel attached to the permanency of your current situation, even if it’s making you unhappy, it’s time to start asking yourself some questions. First, “What’s the worst that could happen if I make a new decision?” Oftentimes, that worst case scenario is the exact same situation you’re in now, so don’t be afraid of making a new decision when the outcome might be the same as no decision at all – it could be so much better.

Many times we’re afraid of losing the good things about where we’re at now if we make a different decision. Maybe you’re afraid of losing your friends or your favorite restaurant. But what if you got really intentional, took inventory of what you loved, and made a focused effort to do those things (or similar) in a different situation? It’s possible to preserve the good while making even more room for new greatness.

So stop focusing so much on permanency. Life isn’t meant to be that way. If something isn’t serving you in the way that it could, try something new. Be intentional, focus on maintaining what you already have, and keep changing things to get even better.

We’re all quick to give our friends high fives, cheer them on, be their biggest supporters… but what about the person in the mirror? When do we ever give ourselves a high five? And what would happen if we made a habit of it? That’s what Mel’s going to share, and let me tell you, it will absolutely change the game for you.

  • What did it feel like keeping everything inside and how did it manifest for you?
  • What is The High 5 Habit?
  • Does it ever feel like you won’t be able to achieve what you want if you show yourself love?
  • What has this habit unlocked for you?

785. Two Ways That We Always Create More Abundance

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why people feel a lack of abundance
  • Where to look when you need to feel more abundant
  • How to shift your mindset into abundance

 

Resources:

  • Visit chrisharder.me/mastermind to apply for our elite mastermind group

Show Notes:

Some people hate talking about money… but they still wish they had more. Here’s a secret nobody tells you: making more money won’t actually make you feel more abundant. That feeling can exist at any financial level. It’s just a mindset. We’re going to share our top tips for crushing scarcity, and moving into abundance.

Our first tip is this: stop focusing on what you don’t have and take inventory of what you do have. You have four tiers of assets, but many people only look at the first tier: cash on hand. We rely on that number to feel abundant, even though how we feel about that amount may change from day to day. Get off that roller coaster and start focusing on all four tiers:

  • Tier 1: Cash on hand, checking, savings
  • Tier 2: Cash investments, stocks, bonds, real estate equity
  • Tier 3: Reserves that can be tapped into if needed (vehicles, credit, investors, collections)
  • Tier 4: Untapped ideas and potential

Abundance doesn’t come from what you have on hand, but your ability to create money out of thin air. Anytime you’re not feeling abundant, just recognize that you have those untapped talents that people would pay you for that you can turn into real money whenever you need.

Our second tip is to hang out with rich people. You want to be in the room with people who are doing the things that you want. This can mean getting creative – for instance, the Nordstrom worker who’s networking with everyone he helps put himself in the position to be surrounded by people doing the things he wants to be doing. This can also mean springing for something premium outside of your comfort zone that’s going to put you around those people – premium memberships, hair salons, hotels, and more. These are the rooms where the opportunities and ideas are.

These are the best ways to create more abundance in your life. You have to stretch your thinking beyond where you already are and look for the limitless possibilities out there.

Show Notes:

Making big, disruptive decisions in life can be hard. We’ve been making some massively big decisions in our life over the past few years, and we’ve developed a rhythm to making them and vetting whether they feel right. Whether it’s a decision to move, start a business, sell a home, or any other big life decision, we run them through a three-step process to make sure it’s the right move for us.

The first question we ask ourselves before making a decision is this: will this decision give me extreme energy? Is it so aligned with your goals that, even when things get messy, it is still going to provide you with energy? When you’re making a decision, you tend to focus on the energy you’re feeling in the moment, not the long term energy that’s going to come – or leave – based on that decision.

The second question to ask yourself is: are you OK with the worst possible outcome of that decision? You don’t have to feel good about that happening. You surely don’t want it to happen. But would you be OK if it happened? It’s a hard question to answer, but it is crucial if you want to move forward without regret.

And third: do you have a support system to help you through the decision? This doesn’t mean you have to know the exact people that are going to be there for you, but you have to know that they are out there and that you can find them. If you know that you have the support system in place for this decision, you need to move forward, knowing you can tap into it.

Imagine how that decision would play out, all the way to the end. If you are happy with the outcome then move forward. If you’ve answered these three questions, then there’s nothing stopping you from changing directions if things don’t end up the way you expected, but at least you won’t be paralyzed by the fear of deciding in the first place.

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

 

Show Notes:

As we’ve been traveling, we’ve been listening to a ton of podcasts that are reeducating and inspiring us to do our best work. Again and again, we are having these reminders of lessons that are imperative to our success.

One of the first reminders we had was from a podcast with Lewis Howes and Rob Dyrdek. Rob does a great job of living his life to the fullest while also achieving incredible things and reaching massive success. He talked about living a life without compromise and following where your energy leads you.

Another lesson is the power of manifestation – but not in the way you might expect. Truly taking the time to embody and visualize the feeling of what you want. Whether you’re inclined to more logical or mystical thinking, this still works. Logically, picturing and feeling what you want is going to wire your brain to take conscious and subconscious actions that bring you the results. Or you may believe that the power of asking the universe is actually bringing you closer to your goals. Either way, this is a powerful tool.

And lastly, we were reminded of the power of rituals and boundaries. Setting clear boundaries and expectations of how long you are going to work, how long you’re going to spend with your family, who you’re going to spend time with, what you’re going to track, and more. You need to exercise your boundaries in order to live a life within the container you want.

There are so many things you can learn from plugging in and listening to things that inspire and motivate you. You are more powerful than you realize, it just takes finding something to spark that memory and then taking the action to prove it.

Show Notes:

2022 seems like it’s just around the corner. You’ve still got some time to prepare, but if you’re not thinking about it, it’ll be here before you know it. This is the sweet spot where you can make sure that you have everything lined up to make 2022 the best year of your life. We always take the time to plot out where we want to go next year so that we can hit the ground running instead of playing catch up, and we’re sharing the strategies we’re using for ourselves and our businesses so you can set your 2022 up for success.

One thing we always focus on is our physical and mental health. Not only is this important personally, but the better you feel in these areas, the better your business will perform. Identify what practices you need to prioritize, what you need to add, and what you need to remove, and be relentless about sticking to them. The little things add up, so instead of focusing on massive shifts, look at the little pivots you can make that are going to add up to huge results.

The next thing we focus on is what’s most important to us in the next 18 months to make it feel like we are winning. When you identify your core values, you’re able to build your business, personal, and financial goals around those. Find out how much money you need to live your “dream life,” and don’t add anything to your plate that is going to make you money beyond that while also impacting your quality of life negatively.

And last, audience acquisition. There’s nothing that a large, engaged audience can’t solve in your business – and therefore in your life. Focusing on the ways you can get eyes on your product and your business is going to be essential for setting you up for success in 2022.

It’s not too early – or too late – to start planning out your business and personal moves for next year. In fact, this is the perfect time to make the plan for next year that will help you achieve everything you want and more.

773. Here's Why Flexibility Leads to Opportunity
16:24

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Why flexibility matters
  • Where flexibility helped us
  • Where being rigid hurt us
  • How to be more flexible in life

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

 

Show Notes:

Flexibility creates opportunity. When good things pop up in life, you will only be able to say “yes” if you’ve been intentional about building flexibility into your life. And a lack of flexibility is only going to cost you opportunities. We’re going to show some examples of both in our life – as well as how you can build more flexibility into your own.

A few months ago, someone made an offer on our Scottsdale, Arizona home that was way higher than we thought it was worth – much more than we paid for it. And even though we had only been there a few months, we saw that it was a major opportunity to make a lot of money fast. That offer ultimately fell through, but it led to us putting our home on the market to see what happened. The flexibility to be OK with either outcome gave us an incredible opportunity.

On the other hand, an example of when a lack of flexibility robbed us of opportunity is when our friend Jim Kwik wanted to use my recording studio to record an interview with Tom, the founder of MySpace. But the studio was completely booked for the day and Jim said he was hoping to get Tom to do an interview on our show after his interview. He told us to “Start making room for the miracles.”

It’s important that you leave space in your calendar for things to show up, but this doesn’t mean to do nothing. You have to go out into the world to allow miracles to show up. Just don’t be so rigid that you aren’t willing to see those miracles for the opportunities that they are.

  • Recognizing silver linings

 

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:

Sometimes you have days that – from the outside in – seem terrible, but internally, we have the power to turn those days around. Our brains are wired to focus on the negative, but we can put our lives into perspective with one simple trick: acknowledge that this is life, and this may be as good as it gets. So buckle up and enjoy the moment.

Even on days that suck, you’d be surprised by the joy that can come from just being present in the moment. You don’t have to override sad or painful feelings, but if you acknowledge and accept them, and recognize what each moment has to offer, you can find the good in any situation.

Tell yourself that today may be as good as it gets. Stop comparing where you are against a future where things might get better or a past that you can’t reclaim. Today is all you have, and it may never get better, so focus on the silver lining because, as long as you’re alive, there’ll be one to be found.

If you try that phrase on for size, it will reframe everything for you, and you will find more joy every day.

Now, with her work in The Pinkubator, she helps women break barriers by investing in women founders to level the playing field and shatter the glass ceiling for good.

Her work today, in The Pinkubator, continues to break barriers by investing in and mentoring other women to get to her same outcomes. She’s on a mission to make women really rich. You cannot miss Cindy. Everything she touches turns to PINK!

Over a distinguished 25-year career in healthcare, in only the last ten years, she has built and sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals (which redefined long acting testosterone treatment for men), then Sprout Pharmaceuticals (which broke through with the first ever FDA-approved drug for low sexual desire in women – dubbed “female Viagra” by the media). After selling the company for $1 billion in 2015, she successfully fought to get the drug back and launch it on her own terms.

Cindy has made waves and her own success, creating mission driven companies that deliver big. Her results have become widely covered business success stories featured in major media outlets. She is most proud of helping others take command of their lives. The profoundly positive impact those companies have made for people is what keeps her coming back for more.

From years of running masterminds, I can tell you that the challenges people face – and the reasons they end up throwing in the towel – are largely the same. As much as you plan for your dream and think ahead, you have to make sure that you’re planning for the times when things get hard. Specifically, you need to plan for when you feel like quitting. I’m going to share eight common reasons why people quit early and how to move past them to keep your dream going.

  • Having conversations with your partner

 

Resources:

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

 

Guest Bio:

Her books have also received numerous awards including a Mom's Choice Award and a Readers Favorite International Award.

  • 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

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

 

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:

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

738. Two Questions We Ask Ourselves to Get the Business Results We Want

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.

Guest Bio:

Catherine Gray is a producer, author, TEDx speaker,  host of the “Invest in Her” podcast, the Founder of She Angel Investors, and Co-Founder of non-profit She Angels Foundation.

Her focus is always on empowering female entrepreneurs. Her passion is to utilize her multimedia platform to fund women and level the playing field since women are severely underfunded.

Currently, her dream project is producing a new original series for television called “She Angels.” It covers the exciting journeys of the female entrepreneurs who win funding and mentorship at the She Angels Pitch Fest. She Angels is creating a global initiative to fund women around the world.

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.

She has produced several award-winning films including the very first documentary film about gay marriage called “I Can't Marry You.” Narrated by Ellen DeGeneres's mom, Betty, the film aired on PBS in more than 60 cities nationwide. She also co-produced several documentary films for the LOGO network, which led her to start her own production company called Showbiz Shorts (aka Corp Shorts), and now her most current endeavor, 360 Karma Productions.

She Angels is my multi-media platform that creates everything from films and shows, to game-changing events to empower women such as the Live Love Thrive Conferences, podcasts, and the She Angels Pitchfest and TV series. Pitchfest is a collaboration with the city of West Hollywood, CA.

After 15 years, she left her position as the top producer of Miami’s cable television advertising to become Vice President of Advertising for the first-ever gay, cable network and decided from that day forward that all of her ventures would be working on projects for the greater good.

Her favorite quote is from Mahatma Gandhi: "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in complete harmony." She also believes strongly in the Dalai Lama’s quote, “The Western women will save the world.”

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.

It’s really easy to neglect our relationships when going after our big dreams. When I was writing my book “A Tribe Called Bliss,” I did a ton of research on what makes people happy. What is this place called bliss that we all strive for? Is it even worth striving for? Happiness is great, but it’s important that we don’t deny ourselves the full range of emotions just because we want to be happy. And one of the best ways to cultivate those emotions is through meaningful relationships.

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. Locks & Mane believes in creating quality products that inspire all women to look and feel their best.

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.

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.

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
  • Being okay with failure
  • Sharing your story
  • Accepting change

 

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:

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.

700. Three Business Traps to Avoid

  • Pushing your boundaries
  • Growing your audience
  • Competing on more than price

 

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.

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.

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.

Believing in yourself is going to get you to where you want to go.

And that’s not just my opinion: It’s backed up by science! We all know the placebo effect and how in many instances it is nearly as powerful as actual medication — all with the power of our mind.

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.

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.

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.

Jessica is going to show you how you can activate this power inside of you at this very moment, reminding you how to get out of your head and figure out what it is about you that makes you unique and apply it to everything you do.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you get comfortable asking for things outside of your comfort zone?
  • What does it mean to build an obsession-worthy personal brand?
  • What do you do when you think you’ve found yourself and then you go and do something new?
  • Why should you build a personal brand in the first place?
  • How do you start building out a personal brand?
  • What is something that you wish more people knew about you?

 

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. She also hosts the top-ranked marketing podcast The SimplyBe Podcast. Jessica’s debut book, Be: A No Bullsh*t Guide to Increasing Your Self Worth and Net Worth by Simply Being Yourself, launches in February 2021 with Sounds True, an imprint of Macmillan. 

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.

667. Comfort Zones are Painful
12:33

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.

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.

Guest Bio:

Amy Lacey is the founder of Cali’flour Foods.   She believes that eating healthy should taste as good as it makes you feel.  Most people are tired of sacrificing flavor for health.  That is why she developed the first no mess, no-stress cauliflower pizza crust that actually satisfies your cravings so you can maintain your healthy lifestyle! 

Amy is one of the 23.5 million people suffering from an autoimmune disease.  After being diagnosed with lupus in 2010, she realized she needed to change her eating habits.  With that in mind, she set out to recreate foods that no longer worked for her. She measured the success of the products by her inflammatory reactions and finally came up with healthy and delicious alternatives to some of her favorites.  From that journey, Cali’flour Foods was born. 

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.

Amy’s future business plans include working with budding entrepreneurs to develop and launch their food products and continuing to mentor girls and young women.  When she is not hard at work, you can find Amy enjoying the great outdoors with her family.  Amy lives in Melbourne, Florida, with her husband, two sons, and daughter.
