Your First 9 Posts on Social Media
2305

Based on the title of this podcast, you’re probably thinking I’m about to give you the Holy Grail of a content strategy.

And although this episode is EXTREMELY tactical, I’ll be honest… Your first 9 posts on social media don’t matter as much as you think they do.

Yes, you read that right!

If you’re feeling stuck after starting a new Instagram account for your business or are finding yourself in a season of analysis paralysis, buckle in and get ready to take notes.

In this class, we’ll chat about:

  • What to post when you start a new social media account
  • How to remain consistent after you start, and
  • What types of posts you should be creating to attract your dream customer.

I also took the time to answer questions from the live audience, so you’re in for a real treat with this one! Listen in now.

Of course, everyone needs to start somewhere, and this is your day to get out and make it happen. If you’re ready to start showing up for your business in big ways, download our FREE Social Media Marketing Guide! Snag it >>HERE<< and start building the business you’ve always dreamed of.

How to Get Paid to Talk About Brands You Love: Affiliate Marketing 101
1688

I’m about to admit something a liiiiittle embarrassing… For years, I was totally against affiliate marketing in my business.

I always respected influencers who made money posting links to their outfits, doing sponsored posts, and asking their audience to check out their favorite brand of coffee, but I never felt like it was for me…

…That is, until I discovered Amazon Affiliate Marketing.

I loved it so much that in the beginning of 2022, Social Curator launched our first Affiliate program to give our users a chance to earn money for telling their friends about our platform.

Whether you’re considering becoming an influencer or would just like to add another revenue for your business, affiliate marketing is a great way to share things you use every day AND make a little money, too.

If you’re wondering how to get started, how to promote your link, and some quick tips to ensure you’re making the most you can as an Affiliate, this episode is for you!

Click play for the 4-1-1 about all things affiliate marketing (which, truth be told, is what I wish someone had given me!)

As you can probably tell, I’m SO passionate about business owners getting paid to talk about brands they love and believe in. That’s why I was so excited to launch the Social Curator Affiliate program earlier this year!

If you love helping small businesses, you dig Social Curator, and you’re a fan of creating sales for yourself and others, you’re a perfect fit to become a Social Curator Affiliate.  There’s absolutely no limit to how much you can earn as an Affiliate, and it’s so easy to get started!

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • How you (yes, you!) can become radically confident in all aspects of your life

Should You Really Post That? Flash Fire Q+A
1706

Y’all, I have been giving advice and sharing my opinions for as long as I can remember. In fact, I have distinct memories of having opinions ABOUT opinions as young as 7 years old!

The point is: when business owners ask me questions about how to grow their business, I’m more than happy to give you advice.

And that’s exactly what I’m doing today!

In this Q+A, I answer the following questions from business owners like you:

  • “You talk a lot about just being brave and putting content out there, especially at the start with stories that disappear in 24 hours or Facebook lives that no one is really watching yet. I wonder if you could also address some caution points. Things that we would want to pause before putting out there for content because it might cause regret later in the digital footprint.”
  • “What are some of your favorite podcasts?”
  • “As a mom of 3 beautiful daughters, I want to know: what do you want to pass to your daughter? What do you want her to model from you?”
  • “How do your friends/ family deal with your social media success? Are they apprehensive about you being around, in fear of posting their face online?”

Prior to this recording, I hadn’t seen these questions or planned out my responses, so you’re about to hear my raw, unfiltered advice. Click play now!

Thank you so much for listening to another episode of the Jasmine Star Show. Make sure you don’t miss another one by subscribing to the podcast on iTunes! It seems like such a small act, but it truly means the world to me and my team.

As you may know, coaching business owners is one of the most fulfilling elements of what I do.

I go Live on Instagram and Facebook every week answering your questions, host group coaching sessions inside the private Social Curator community… heck, I coach friends, family, and colleagues that don’t even ASK for my advice!

THIS Was The Most Difficult Day As A Business Owner
1402

It’s the 5 year anniversary of Social Curator, and our team is reflecting on how wonderfully unexpected, incredibly fun, and wildly exciting our journey has been.

To document this momentous occasion, I sat down with Kristi, Podcast Producer and Content Creator, to record an episode for the Jasmine Star Show about just how far we’ve come!

Press play if you want to get the inside scoop on… 

  • How the name “Social Curator” came about (spoiler alert: JD and I did NOT think of it!)
  • Why and how our business evolved from a membership to a subscription (and what you can learn from our experience)
  • The good, the bad, and the straight up cringe-worthy “rock bottom” moments of the last 5 years

and more.

To all of the past, present, and future users in Social Curator: from the bottom of our hearts, all of us on the Social Curator Team want to say THANK YOU. Without you, there would be no Social Curator, and we appreciate you more than we can say.

In this episode we’re welcoming Jess Lively, an incredible woman and friend of mine, back onto the podcast.

Just a few weeks ago on a previous episode of the podcast, she taught us about how to use our inner voice to make intuition-led business decisions, and the best ways to tap into our subconscious and use it to guide us in life and business.

After we finished recording, Jess offered to come back onto the Jasmine Star Show and give me an “Inner Voice Session, which allow you to live as your inner voice and receive deep inner guidance on all aspects of your life in a single session.

Of course, Jess explains the process in more detail during our conversation, but basically: it’s an opportunity for me to open up and allow myself to be vulnerable as she walks me through how to listen to my intuition and, most importantly, so YOU can learn how to do this yourself.

This was an extremely powerful session in which I released my money story and I can’t wait for you to hear it. So without further ado, click play now!

You WILL Be "Too Much"... And That's Your Superpower
1579

They WILL say you’re too old/young/rich/poor/Black/Brown/White/dumb/smart. You’ll always be “too” something. Too much, too little.

So often we stop our growth for fear of what others will say.

  • We hide our light to make other people comfortable.
  • We speak softly, stand in shadows, and play it down with subconscious hopes that our enough-ness won’t highlight someone else’s insecurities.

But by doing so, we live a half-life of what we could do, who we could become.

This episode is a recording from an Instagram Live in which I share my perspective, answer questions, do a live coaching session, and share what I learned in hopes that someone (hopefully YOU) will get 1% stronger to step into their power. Ready? Click play now!

If you were motivated by this episode, let me know in an iTunes review! Until next time, I hope you own your magic and know you’re enough.

Statistically Speaking, You're NOT Behind
578
  • “It's too late,”
  • “I'm too old,”
  • “There are so many young entrepreneurs, I could never compete with them.”
  • “I can’t keep up with the trends.”
  • “I’m not technologically savvy.”

Have you ever thought something similar?

Let me share with you 3 major takeaways from the 2.7 million startups in a recent study on Inc.com:

  • It’s never too late to start a business, ever.
  • The study showed that a start-up founder who is 50 years old is twice as likely to start an extremely successful business than a 30 year old.
  • Experience is better than youth. The more experience you accumulate in life, the smarter decisions you make.

This isn't a hypothesis, yo… Statistically speaking, you’re NOT behind. And in this episode, I’ll prove it to you! Click play now.

If you needed to hear this message today, I’d love to hear your thoughts in an iTunes review. My goal is to give you the tools you need to grow your business, and that includes helping you cultivate the MINDSET you need to believe your dreams are possible… Because they ARE possible, my friend, and I will continue shouting it from the rooftops until you believe it, too.

Improving Your Self Awareness for Business Growth
1838

I’m just going to say it: I believe that self awareness is the fuel your business needs to be successful.

Without self awareness, you won’t be able to reach the goals you’ve set, impact the amount of lives you want to, or make the amount of money you want to.

That’s why I’m excited to share with you a conversation I had on the Callie Ammons Show about this topic, because I truly believe it’s important for business owners to understand.

In this interview, Callie and I discuss:

  • How to live with deeper self awareness
  • Why it’s important, and
  • How my approach to life keeps me growing day by day.

I LOVED this conversation, so many thanks to Callie Ammons for allowing us to share it with you.

Every life-changing adventure, decision, or opportunity I’ve had started off with a side hustle.

In case you’re unfamiliar with that term, a side hustle is a small business that is *usually* not your main source of income while you get it off the ground.

Side hustles are not guaranteed to be a full-time career, but you’ll be lucky if it becomes one. It could take 2 months, 2 years, or 20 years…but as long as you are moving forward in the right direction that is all you can do.

Remember: you are responsible for the effort, not the outcome.

If you are executing at 110% then it will happen at the time it is supposed to happen.

Ready to make some changes and balance your time to better reflect what your priorities are? Click play NOW for 5 tactical tips to grow your side hustle while working full time!

Instagram Update: Marketing Tips and Latest Updates to Use in Your Business
1014

Does Instagram REALLY matter?

I was thinking about this topic the other day because let me deal it to you straight: many business owners have personal opinions around specific platforms and it’s affecting their decision-making when it comes to using social media for their business.

Our objective as business owners is to make decisions that benefit our business… personal feelings aside.

We have to CHOOSE to market our business using the best outlets available to us. 100 years ago, it was via newspapers… then the radio… then it was on TV… then it transformed into billboards, the internet, and finally: social media.

I personally think that in 2022, for many business owners Instagram is an excellent place to market your business.

It’s completely fine if you choose not to use social media, but if you use Instagram to market your business, I’d like to share with you my top 2 tips for business owners using this platform in 2022, so click play NOW!

I hope these tips will help you use Instagram to market your business… because my prediction is that it’s here to stay, and it’s NEVER too late to start! If you’d like even MORE help with your social media marketing strategy, I’m hosting a free class I’m sure you’d LOVE: How to Plan, Create, and Execute a MONTH of Social Media Posts in ONE Day. There, I’ll teach you how to batch your content and post in 5 minutes or less so you spend less time thinking and more time DOING. I know you’ll love this class (it’s actually the most popular one I’ve ever taught!) so  save your seat at https://www.jasminestar.com/30days and learn how to cut your social media planning time in HALF!

What most people don’t know is that when you start a business, you have to make the conscious decision to become a marketer.

Because as much as you love what you do (whether it be painting, copywriting, cooking, photography, business coaching or anything else), the reality is that without marketing, you won’t ever get to do it! Not as a business, anyway.

That’s why you have to make the conscious decision to SELL your products or services… You need to market your brand in order to get customers, and that involves a lot of work.

This is why I always say “building a business isn’t for the faint of heart”... because it isn’t.

>>So if you’re not doing the work to market yourself, don’t start a business. Because it won’t be successful anyway… That’s just real talk!<<

But if you ARE willing to do this, you’re just not sure how, you’re talking to the right girl! Click play on today’s episode NOW.

Pat Flynn (Founder of SmartPassiveIncome & SwitchPod) once told me, “Riches are in niches,” and he couldn’t be more right.

That’s why I tell every business owner (yes, you too!) to identify their Ideal Client, and speak specifically to them… and that might even include references to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre!

What to Say to Social Media Haters: A Follow-Up with Bianca Olthoff
1741

I’ll be honest, dear podcast listener… I need to come correct.

Last week, I released a podcast episode titled The Secret to Dealing with Social Media Haters, and I didn’t serve you or the rest of the Jasmine Star Show podcast community right.

>>In last week’s podcast, I discussed how to let the comments from social media haters fall off your back… but I didn’t give you tactical tips on what to say to them.<<

When I discussed this episode with my twin sister, Bianca Olthoff, she opened my eyes to the fact that it’s “easy” for me to let mean comments roll off my back… but she and the majority of my listeners are bothered by them and aren’t able to do that.

I completely missed the mark in the episode, which is why I needed to invite my sister on the show to help me hit the target.

1480

Haters. Like every household has dirty laundry, we’ve all got ‘em.

And just like the hamper of overflowing laundry that remains ignored in my closet, I also choose to turn the other cheek when haters troll me on the Internet!

A few weeks ago, our family went to Las Vegas, Nevada. As I walked through Caesar’s Palace with my daughter, I had a distinct memory of my grandmother from when I was a little girl.

Are You Making This Business Mistake?
634

I’m coming to the mic today with my big hoop earrings on, which means I’m ready to get fired up about something I’m passionate about.

And what I’m feeling really passionate about right now may be a little controversial… but if y’all have been around the block with me before, you know I’m the Queen of telling it like it is. So here it is:

>>Business owners need to spend less time working IN their business and more time ON their business.<<

There, I said it!

Now let me explain the difference…

Basically, working IN your business is when you’re doing things that are urgent in your day-to-day business, but not necessarily serving the long-term strategy for your business.

And when you’re working ON your business, you’re setting yourself up for success in the long-term… not just in the short term.

So why does this matter? Click play to find out!

Now I know you’re ready to start turning followers into customers… I know you’re tired of spending hours working in the weeds of your business… Social Curator’s brand new course, S.O.S. Selling on Social, will give you the strategy, resources, and the confidence you need to consistently make sales on social media and get more dream customers.

Want More Sales? What You Need to Know About Beta Testing
1924

Have you ever heard of a beta test?

It’s okay if you haven’t… years ago, I thought that if you were going to launch something, you would simply create it, put it out in the world, and people would buy it. That’s it!

But there’s another way to launch a new product or service… and that’s to beta test it BEFORE you release it publicly.

>>A beta test is when you allow a small group of people to test your new “thing”--whether it’s to go through your latest service, take a course before it’s released, or try a new product–typically at a discounted price, in exchange for their feedback on it.<<

In the Fall of 2021, the Social Curator Team and I decided to host a beta test for our brand new digital course, S.O.S. Selling on Social.

In this episode, you’ll learn why we decided to host a beta test, hear behind the scenes clips from our team as we went through the process, and learn how to create one yourself.

I can’t wait to tell you everything you need to know about beta testing, so click play now!

If you’d like to learn more about S.O.S. Selling on Social, I’m hosting a live class where you can learn all about it: What I Learned Selling 7 Figures on Instagram. In this class, you’ll learn my 5-part social media sales strategy to help you get more eyes on your business and more money in your wallet, and of course I’ll share how this course can help you in your business journey. I’m so excited to share these tips with you, so save your seat at https://www.jasminestar.com/sales and I’ll see you then!

Why Hoping for a Miracle Isn’t a Bad Thing
957

When I was growing up, my family prayed for miracles.

We received assistance from the government and charitable donations from our church, and most years, there wasn’t money for groceries… let alone Christmas gifts. 

*We used to joke that we weren't poor… we were “po” because we couldn’t even afford the “or” at the end of the word!*

Because of our financial situation, I learned to trust in God and pray for miracles, even if it seemed impossible….and this is something I still practice today.

This episode is a short, unprofessional, and unplanned recording to remind you that hoping for a miracle isn’t a bad thing…. 

It just might be the thing that keeps you going through the hard times.

I Made 20 Content Ideas for You
1193

Do you have a pet peeve? (C’mon, I know you do!)

Whether you can’t stand when people chew with their mouths open, drive slow, or talk during a movie, I bet you thought of your biggest pet peeve as soon as I asked.

And while I can definitely relate to those personal pet peeves, I also have professional ones, too. (I know, diva much?) Let me explain…

>>My biggest pet peeve is when business owners say they have nothing to post on social media for their business.<<

I’m sure I just rubbed some people the wrong way, but it’s my truth!

It’s my biggest pet peeve because I KNOW business owners have endless amounts of content they could be creating… The content exists in the everyday tasks they’re doing for their business, their story, and their interests. Plus, I know the endless possibilities for your business if you just commit to posting consistently on social media!

That being said, by the end of this episode and free guide, you will have 20 new content ideas, along with clear directions on how to create each one with a combination of video tutorials, caption templates, and post examples.

How to Take Advantage of Holiday Sales without Lowering Your Prices
729

When I was 9 years old, I desperately hoped for the starring role of Mary in our church Christmas play, but one look at me and the director whispered, “I have the perfect part for you!”

Two weeks later my hair was slicked back into a tight bun, I wore a beard, and my name was listed next to the title “Angry Innkeeper” in the printed show program.

Instead of floating onto the stage as the beautifully pregnant Mary, I choked on my fake beard as my theatrical debut was relegated to shouting, “I SAID there's no room in the inn!”

Thankfully my Broadway aspirations ended on that stage, but it taught me that shouting (in person or online) is never a good thing.

During the holidays, customers are bombarded with advertisements, so much so that it feels like you have to shout to have your business noticed…. And we’re often pulled into the drama of price-reducing advertisements, flashy sales, BOGOs, and more. Not to mention how frustrating it is when the bearded innkeepers who shout the loudest (AKA your competitors) constantly under-cut your prices!

In this episode, I’m going to give you 3 ways to take advantage of the holiday sales season WITHOUT lowering your prices! Are you ready to dive in? Click play NOW!

I wish you the best of luck as you market your business this holiday season, and please subscribe to the Jasmine Star Show wherever you’re tuning in from today so we can connect on a future episode as well.

In this episode, you’ll hear me answer the following questions:

  • “How do I transition my Facebook, which has always been more of my personal page, to come across more business yet not seem too pushy or cocky?”
  • “How can I show up and serve even on days when I’m questioning if I have enough value to give?”
  • “How important is it for me to drill down to a specific ideal client avatar when I already have a following of the general public?”
  • “How do I turn what I do naturally (inspire, support and teach others) into a lucrative business that supports me as an individual?”
  • “What can I say or do daily to help boost my confidence and fear of putting myself out there on social again?”

Click play NOW to hear my answers!

Getting Very Personal: 3 Things I Haven’t Shared Publicly
1795

Recently as I’ve been looking back on 2021, I’ve reflected on how it’s really been a year full of ups and downs, both business-wise and personally, and I haven’t always shared them all.

Of course, I *have* given a glimpse into my “real life”, such as finalizing Luna’s adoption, the passing of our beloved dog Polo, and moving into our new house.

But there are a few things I haven’t shared, either because I didn’t think they were necessary or relevant, or I didn’t know how.

Because I feel like the podcast is a more intimate, sacred space, I’m more open to talk about it here, document it for “Future Jasmine”, and share some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

So let’s dive in with 3 things I haven’t shared on social media this year by clicking play!

This year has had many ups and downs but I’m grateful for ALL of it… the good, the bad, and the straight up ugly.

I can say one thing for certain, though: my year was made better because of YOU.

Thank you for listening, thank you for subscribing, sharing, and reviewing the Jasmine Star Show… Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.

One of my favorite ways to connect with you is on the podcast and via text… and today, I’m combining both of my loves.

Recently, I texted members of my text community telling them to ask me ANYTHING (from business to my personal life and everything in between), and today you’re going to hear my honest answers to them.

I received some GREAT questions, including:

  • Is there any specific strategy to launch with luxury prices when many competitors price much lower? I’m in the quilt industry.
  • As a solo entrepreneur, what is the best way to approach having a baby and creating space for "maternity leave" when it all is on your shoulders?
  • I am an accessories company. I keep trying to figure out what "problem" people have that I'm here to solve without talking about price.
  • I've taken a LONG break from posting on social media. What are some things I should consider before jumping back in?

and more!

Today, I’m thrilled to share with you a podcast interview I had with Ashley Alderson on her podcast, Boutique Chat.

Is your FEAR getting in the way of your business success??

*It’s okay, you can tell me!*

It’s very common to feel fear in your business, whether it’s fear of making mistakes, of what other people think, or--hear me out!--of actually being successful.

The Only 7 Caption Categories You EVER Need to Post
1306

I don't know about you, but there was a time in my life where I would open my phone and I would scroll and think to myself, I have nothing to post on Instagram today, or I couldn't actually figure out the right things to say. 

*Can you relate?!*

I was desperate for people to know who I was. I wanted to show what made my business special, but it felt like no one paid attention.

>>It wasn’t until I started sharing WHO I was, in addition to WHAT I did, that made the biggest difference.<<

In fact, it took me several years to develop a systematic approach to creating content for my business every single week and once I figured it out, I was getting engagement, followers, and SALES for my business because of my social media captions.

That’s right…. What if I told you that you only need to know how to create 7 types of posts on social media in order to NEVER run out of things to say?

It’s TRUE! There are just 7 types of posts you can create every day that are designed to get engagement and turn followers into customers. *I’m not lyin’!*

In this episode, I’m going to teach you how to write these 7 types of posts. So click play NOW!

Have you ever been asked a question that forced you to pause and truly think about the answer?

That happened to me recently during a Facebook Live where someone asked: “What do you wish you would have done sooner?”

  • I could have answered that I wished I had started my business sooner.
  • I could have responded that I wished I had invested sooner.

Yes, I could have said all of those things, but I didn’t.

Their Opinions Don’t Pay Your Bills
786

Listen up… People have opinions. Or maybe I should say people have O. PIN. IONS. (with a little extra flavor because we all know how vocal everyone is on the internet.) 

No matter what you do, someone will have something to say about it: 

  • They’ll talk about you whether you decide to start a business or not.
  • They’ll judge you if you decide to sit on the couch or go for a run.
  • People will talk about you whether you decide to have pancakes or a smoothie for breakfast. 

Their opinions will always exist, so why don’t you do the dang thing anyway? 

  • Why don’t you do what lights your soul on fire? 
  • How about you change the world with your passion? 
  • What about you do what you were put on this earth to do? 

If you’re struggling with people who don’t believe in your business, it’s time to let go of their doubt. 

>>I recorded this episode with the hope that you’ll be inspired to rise above the haters and build the business of your dreams, despite their opinions.<<

1301

Believe it or not, you don’t have to be the best in your industry to be successful.

In fact, for a very long time I knew that there were a lot of photographers who couldn't stand the fact that I was mediocre and I was getting awards for my work.

They couldn't stand that I was charging a premium in a luxury market and they said, “She's not even that good.

*And they were right! I WASN’T good!*

But do you wanna know where our paths veered and mine continued to grow? I became really really good at giving VALUE to the end user.

Does Motivation Really Exist?
984

Here’s a question I get often and one I struggle to answer: “How do I get (and stay) consistent on social media?”

If you’ve ever had this question, this episode is for you, friend.

The answer to being consistent is actually quite simple, but it’s not the one you want to hear…

  • I want to tell you that there’s a magic formula for consistency.
  • I want to tell you that if you drink a green smoothie every morning, it will make showing up on social media easier.
  • I want to tell you that meditating for 10 minutes each day will guarantee your success.

But it’s much simpler than that. And also much more difficult. Because let me deal it to you straight:

>>Consistency is an act of discipline. It means you do the work even when you don’t want to… and it DEFINITELY doesn’t mean you rely on “motivation” to show up for your business.<<

If you need a kick-in-the-pants to learn to master the art of discipline, click play!

Your future self will thank you for pushing through.

If this motivational push was exactly what you needed to hear today, I’d be honored if you told me in a 5-star review on iTunes. I look forward to reading your review soon!

The Difference Between You And A 7 Figure Business Owner
1034

Want to know the difference between YOU and a 7 figure business owner?

As you probably know after over 200 episodes of the Jasmine Star Show, we like to get tactical up in here.

Years ago when I was first building my photography business and I was dreaming of being a 7 figure business owner one day, I used to wonder what set the ‘big’ entrepreneurs apart from the rest, why some people achieve astronomical levels of success and others don’t. 

Now, since investing in masterminds, speaking on stages, being on podcasts, and participating in collaborations with many 7 figure business owners, I’ve been able to compile a list of observations about how they’ve got to where they are.

And that’s what I’m going to share with you today!

Ready to dive in? Click play!

Social Curator is OPEN for enrollment and I want to help YOU take your business to the next level.

Let's Chat: How to Speak to Your Ideal Client on Social Media
2856

In our last podcast episode, we discussed how to create social media content for your ideal client.. including tips for identifying who you’re speaking to and how to make your content feel tailor-made for THEM.

So today, I’m sharing a coaching session I had with members of Social Curator workshopping this very topic with them!

In this episode, you’ll hear me answer the following questions:

  • I know my following likes stuff about ME but do I just talk about me and sprinkle work in?
  • My clients range from 20s-50s, entrepreneurs to stay at home moms to lawyers and more. How do I speak to all of them?
  • I know who my ideal client is, but when it comes to social media I do not know how to reach her or talk to her. Any tips?
  • I’m struggling with knowing what my ideal customer's buying strategy is. What makes them go from a warm lead to on fire and purchasing our box/products?
  • I sometimes have difficulty speaking to the pain point of my ideal client because I'm afraid for it to come off as criticizing their parenting when parenting a child with autism is challenging enough.

Did you hear a question you have too? Click play!

In my upcoming class How to Plan, Create and Execute a MONTH of Social Media Posts in ONE DAY, I’d love to teach you how to work smarter, not harder, when creating content for your ideal client. If you are ready to market your business on social media and not spend *hours* per week writing captions and choosing the perfect photos, join me for the live class for FREE at https://www.jasminestar.com/30days.

The Secret to Creating Content That Attracts Your Ideal Client
1460

Crickets. For the longest time, that’s all I heard after posting on social media. 

I put so much time and effort into saying what I thought everyone wanted to hear. And then…nothing. Can you relate?

>>After months of writing, testing, and waiting, I finally discovered a method that changed everything: to just speak to ONE person.<<

Guess what? This realization not only relieved pressure, but made it easier to know what to say!

Tips for Pitching Yourself On A Podcast with My Producer, Kristi Smith
1778

If you’re listening to this episode, there’s a good chance you love listening to podcasts as much as I do.


Podcasts have been the best thing to bless my ears since Rhianna and Beyonce’s fierce music. *And both of them are Irreplaceable…get it?!*

I listen to podcasts in the car, while I work out, while I get ready for the day… sometimes I even listen to them while I’m just chilling out at home.

Rant: Don't Talk to My Friend That Way!
626

The other day, I got off a Zoom call with several of my girlfriends  and as I shut my laptop I thought to myself, “I don’t know how easy it is to be my friend.”

I don’t say this to make them feel bad, 

>>What I noticed is that often when my friends come to me with a problem, I respond as if it’s a Social Curator coaching session.<<

Every time I speak to them, I end up using our signature QUAA method (Question, Underlying Question, Answer, Accountability)... and sometimes the advice I give them isn’t what they want to hear.

By you see, I love my friends so much that I say things they need to hear… and that is exactly what this episode is for you.

How to Turn One Piece of Content Into Ten
818

Have you heard the phrase, “Work smarter, not harder”?

Of course you have!

But here’s my question for you: have you applied this sentiment to social media?

>>The truth is, there are so many business owners who spend a lot of time creating content but they don’t do it efficiently.<<

These Hustlers are constantly brainstorming ways to bring value to their audience and creating multiple pieces of content per week, but this is not necessarily the best way to approach social media. (Does this sound familiar??)

That’s why I recommend creating just ONE main piece of content per week that is repurposed in multiple ways across all of your social media platforms.

If you’re ready to work smarter, and not harder, click play to learn how to turn one piece of content into ten. I’ll lead the way!

This episode contains a corresponding workbook, How to Turn One Piece of Content Into 10 with My Proven Repurposing Strategy. Not only does it explain my proven repurposing strategy, but the last two pages contain a list of social media platforms and business tools you can choose as platforms to post your content, and a Content Repurpose Checklist you can print and use each week to help you keep track of your content repurposing efforts. You can grab the FREE workbook at https://www.jasminestar.com/repurpose.

My #1 Piece of Business Advice to Achieve Success
988

Do you want to know what my #1 piece of business advice is?

No, it’s not to get a business coach, read a bunch of self-help books, or make a social media content calendar...

It’s to start each day with a gratitude list.
 
People typically hear that and they say “Jasmine, where am I going to find the time to make a list like that?!” My answer is always this: You have time when you make time.
 
Every day, just spend 5 minutes thinking of small things that you are thankful for, such as your electric toothbrush, fridge filled with food, and the ability to pick up the phone and call your mom or dad. It is super calibrating.
 
>>So friend, focus on getting excited about doing more, but avoid getting overwhelmed by feeling grateful for how far you’ve come.<<

3 of The Hardest Lessons I’ve Learned As A Business Owner
1405

“The only way we move past fear of failure is to put ourselves out again and again until the sting disappears.”

This quote by my friend Lewis Howes really sums up the big “F” word: Failure.

It’s not a hot topic to talk about, and it isn’t easy to admit. Failure used to be my biggest fear. I used to define my life based on successes and failures, wins and losses, like life was some big scoreboard… But then I had a mindset shift. 

I realized that failures were just lessons in disguise, and if you look at each experience (good or bad) as a lesson, you’ll get MUCH more out of it than chalking it up to a success or failure.

With this simple shift, I’m able to pursue my passion and, like Lewis said, put myself out there again and again, no matter the result. 

Today, I’m going to give you a candid look at my three greatest business failures (AKA LESSONS!) and what I learned from them with the hope that you can learn from them too.

“Doing It Myself” Was The Reason I Was Losing

Did you know the biggest obstacle standing between your business and its success is YOU?

Of course, there are many unknown variables and outside factors that come into play, but YOU get to determine the path to reach your own version of success.

So brilliant, thought-provoking soul, step aside, and get out of your own way.

Why, When + How to Take a Social Media Break
650

I'm the type of person who over-thinks over-thinking. I lay in bed at night unable to sleep because I'm making lists of things to do (grocery lists, email lists, to-do lists, people-to-hug lists), and finding ways to continue following my dreams.

>>But sometimes thinking gets in the way living and this causes my brain to succumb to stress and lethargy.<<

In light of this, JD and I carve time in our calendars to just be. We share a Google calendar and block out days for resting and catching up…and we also add time for vacations.

Whether it’s a week on a tropical island or a staycation in our small apartment, these breaks were exactly what my brain needed.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Signs to take a break
  • How often to take a break
  • How to prepare to take a break

Click play to discover how to take a break from your business and then leave an iTunes review for the Jasmine Star Show!

Enjoy your time off, friend… You deserve it.

Your Personal Pep Talk: "Thank you, Haters!"
960

Recently, I was in the middle of a workout and I wasn’t feeling it. I was tired, sweaty, and felt like giving up… and I needed to think of something to help me push through to the end.

I was trying to decide what could help me get through the last 25 minutes of my cycle class, and I decided to express gratitude. But I didn’t think about expressing gratitude for people you’d expect--my friends, family, and people who support me.

Instead, I decided to express gratitude for those who have tried to put me down, who tried to put limits on me, and those who have doubted me.

>>I think it’s easy to thank your fans, but it’s hard to thank your haters…. And it’s just as important because without your haters, you wouldn’t be where you are today.<<

In this episode, you’ll hear me thank the business partner who moved on without me. You’ll hear me express gratitude for the event organizer and CEO that didn’t pay me to keynote their conference, despite the reviews and requests from attendees. And you’ll hear me say thank you for all of the people who dissuaded, discouraged, and deprived me from starting Social Curator.

I am so thankful for those experiences because they proved how strong I am and how bad I want it…. And I hope you, my friend, do the same.

>>When people try to put you down, instead of being discouraged, express gratitude.<<

How to Make the Biggest Money Mindset Shift | Curator Coaching Session
2926

Do you know what determines your success?

No, it’s not money, talent, or connections… 

>>Buttercup, contrary to popular belief, the biggest determining factor of your success is your mindset.<<

On that note, this episode of a  Social Curator Coaching Session is unique because the questions were more focused around business beliefs (things we believe are facts that limit us, or make us lucky, or--maybe, just maybe--give the impression that some of us are destined for greatness and others are not).

In this episode, you’ll hear me answer questions about:

  • How to keep up your motivation when people are not engaging with you on social media
  • When you have a million tasks to get done and you're COMPLETELY overwhelmed by it, how to narrow down WHAT to tackle first and how
  • The biggest mindset shift around money that helped me grow my business

and more!

If you’re ready to tackle the mindset shifts that are holding you back, click play!

Creating Something from Nothing: Millions in Your Pocket

So this is the part where a normal person gets emotional and grabs for the tissues… but this tin man over here has a hollow chest. *take me to the wizard, Dorothy!

It’s not that I don’t care… it’s that I care so deeply and viscerally for people that I think logically before I think about it emotionally. I know it doesn't make sense, but you also know what doesn't make sense? Putting something out into the world and not knowing how it would be received. 

The reason I should be crying right now is because my podcast, this very one you have been so faithful to join me on, hit past a million downloads. Can I just say that one more time: ONE. MILLION. DOWNLOADS. 

Today I wanted to turn on the mic for this special occasion and celebrate the journey we have been on together for the last 9 months. I pushed through my fears and followed a crazy dream and I want you to believe that it is possible for you too! Join me by clicking play for the celebration.

Listen up Buttercup, it’s time for some spring cleaning. Grab your broom and mop so you can start connecting with *real* people and get the algorithm gods to look favorably on you. 

In this episode you’ll learn:

How to be More Present + Productive By Setting Boundaries in Your Life and Business
1315

I’m going to say a B word no one likes to bring up: BOUNDARIES. We have this mindset that boundaries limit us or are a heinous selfish act. But boo,that couldn’t be further from the truth. 

By nature setting boundaries means that you are essentially putting you & your needs first. But  that’s a GOOD thing! As an entrepreneur, YOU are the business, which means that your mental & physical health must be a priority in order to be on the top of your game. How can you expect to pour into your audience, your clients, and your business if you aren’t pouring into yourself? When you look at it that way, boundaries are no longer a selfish act but a way to better serve your customers. 

So listen up Buttercup, because I’m going to give you actionable steps for setting boundaries in your life and business so you can be more present and more productive. 

This episode is broken up into three parts: 

  • Setting boundaries with your schedule
  • Setting boundaries with your clients
  • Setting boundaries with your social media 

Click play to learn how to put you first!

And if you’re looking for more resources I’d love for you to check out my free mindset makeover workbook which includes five crucial mindset shifts that you need to make to succeed in business. It's a powerful exercise that changed everything for me. Check it out at www.jasminestar.com/mindset!

How Being Bullied in Elementary School Affects My Business Today
3695

Do you ever wonder how much your past affects who you are today? 

Growing up I was an overweight child of an immigrant, living on government assistance who couldn’t read. You better believe that invited all the neighborhood kids to make fun of me. *I was such an easy target.* 

But you know what? I am stronger because of it. I did everything I could to prove them wrong and find confidence in what I do.

Here’s the thing: people are ALWAYS going to have an opinion about you. But only YOU can give them the power to let it get to you. 

>>Don’t let what other people say about you keep you from moving forward.<<  

It’s a process, boo, but it’s one that we are in together. Click play to hear more from the conversation I have with Zack Kravitz about how being bullied affected my business and learn how you can approach your own haters.

1061

Want to hear what one of the first pieces of advice I got as a business owner? Build. An. Email. List. At the time I didn’t understand why somebody would want to read a newsletter from a photographer.

I was building trust by regularly popping into people's inboxes and trust leads to sales. In order to grow your businesses in the long term, you need a way to connect with your community in a place you own and friend, you own our email list.

But Buttercup, you don't get confident until you do it! When you say, you want to show up authentically, then show up authentically and don't overthink it.

Should Business Owners Be Influencers?
2660

Listen up boo and listen up closely: you do not need to be an influencer to run a successful business

Don’t believe me? 

I know so many of us are convinced that your account has to look a certain way, have a certain amount of followers, or have that blue check mark on it. Some of you strive to become an influencer as your ultimate goal, dreaming of sponsored ads, free products, and tons of adoring followers. I mean, it would just make business easier right? Oh Buttercup, I can’t wait to prove you wrong. 

I was invited to speak at Spark U to high school senior girls recently and what I shared with them I want to share with you too:

There’s a difference between building a business with influence and being an influencer.

Getting TOO Personal on Social Media: How Much is Too Much?
1612

If you are a regular listener of the Jasmine Star Show (thanks boo!), you hear me preach all the time about getting personal on social media. I’m ALLLLLLL about building those relationships and talking as if you’re with your BFF.

However, is there such a thing as getting TOO personal on social media?

This is actually a question I’m asked quite often because it's something that many business owners struggle with. Maybe you want to get personal with your audience but respect the privacy of your family and friends. Or maybe you run a business like Nike or Starbucks *don’t we all wish?* that doesn’t have a “face” of the business. How do you get personal when people don’t even know you exist? 

>>There is really no limit to how personal you can get on social media. It just depends on what you're comfortable with and what your audience wants to see.<<

What makes you unique as a business owner is one of the most powerful things you possess. Stay true to the business vision and share images that differentiate your company with the only true thing that makes your business different: YOU. 

So let’s work on testing it out! Are you ready to get personal with your followers and create raving fans? Click play to hear all my thoughts on getting personal with your audience and how to start doing it!

Are You a Freelancer or Entrepreneur? Seth Godin Has the Answer
2025

Let me ask you, friend: Do you consider yourself a freelancer or an entrepreneur? Because once you’ve identified which lane you are in it’s not only going to bring you confidence but help you approach how you do business. 

Let me introduce you to my future best friend and spirit animal Seth Godin.

Seth is nothing short of a genius. He’s written 19 best-selling books, given 5 TED talks, and created life-changing workshops and online courses about marketing, entrepreneurship, and mindset. 

Seth is about to spill the tea on my podcast *so turn that volume up!* 

I’ll give you a hint: freelancers work with their own two hands while an entrepreneur’s job is to build systems so they don’t have to do the work.

My Audio Diary: How Covid-19 is Affecting My Life and Business
1829

Anyone feel like they are living in an alternate reality? *cue the Twilight Zone theme song* During the COVID-19 quarantine, normal life is like a long lost friend we are desperately waiting to reconnect with. 

Some of us are holding on to the hope that once the dust settles, life is going to completely go back to how it was. But boo boo, that’s just not realistic. It’s time to push past the disappointment and embrace new memories, new patterns, and new opportunities. JD and I are counting the days until social distancing is a thing of the past, but while we wait we are CHOOSING JOY. 

I want to bring you in on one week of our new normal. Big crazy things are happening for me right now… some of them I'm even a little bit embarrassed to talk about. But these are the unexpected twists and turns that happen in the midst of a crisis.

I’m creating this podcast in real time and hope at some point in the near future I will be able to come back and talk about how things ended, how things fared, and the lessons I learned along the way. 

If you’re ready for my real talk, clips from my personal life, and to get an inside look into a business navigating a really crazy time in human history… then click play. This is a rollercoaster of a time for all of us, but we are in this together! 

And if this episode resonated with you, I’d love for you to leave a review!

3 Myths About Instagram That Are Holding You Back in Business | Social Media Marketing World Keynote
3154

I’m gonna throw it back to the early 2000s when the show Mythbusters was airing. Remember that show where they took common myths and either confirmed or busted them?

In a keynote I presented at Social Media Marketing World, I take down some of the common myths people tell themselves about Social Media. Boo boo this is something I’m sooooooo passionate about because I don’t want these misconceptions to hold you back in your business. 

Are you ready to stop letting myths keep you from showing up, adding what you can to the world, and being all you can be?

>> I want you to believe the impossibilities are possibilities for you! <<

Tune in to today’s episode where I break down the myths that are holding you back in business, Buttercup. And if you would like more help on owning social media head to www.jasminestar.com/igmarketingguide for my free Instagram Marketing Guide.

Finding the Silver Lining of COVID-19 for Your Business
3533

I feel like times of uncertainty make us do crazy things. I mean JD and I made a mad dash to the grocery story and want to know what we walked out with? A jar of olives, pimentos, coconut oil and cheese crisps. Who are we? Let's not talk about how I could really use extra toilet paper right now. 

Showing up on social media can feel the same way. You scramble to put out anything and everything without a plan because you want to keep showing up right now. Or maybe you’ve shied away from posting because you want to be sensitive during this time. Whatever it might be, figuring out what conversations to have on social media can be tricky during COVID-19.

The good news is: more people are on social media than ever before, and the last thing anybody wants to see on there is more depressing news. 

Say whaaaaaaattt? That’s GOOD NEWS y'all! That means you have a bigger audience and a better chance of getting your voice out there. 

So are you wondering what content should you be publishing right now??

That’s exactly what Chase Jarvis and I talk about on his show with Creative Live. Listen up Buttercup, because we get into all the juicy strategies. Click play to join us!

How to Stop Checking Your Likes: Your Plan to Becoming a Confident Business Owner with Susie Moore
2273

Whether you like to admit it or not, one of the biggest struggles every entrepreneur faces is worrying if your audience will like you or not. 

You post something and immediately check how many likes you get… and if you don’t reach a certain amount in the first hour you consider deleting it. Or maybe you hesitate to send a DM to a stranger because you don’t know how it will come across so it just sits in your drafts waiting to be sent. *We’ve allllll been there, boo boo* 

Want to hear something totally crazy? 

>>It’s a-okay if people don’t like you.<<

In this episode, I interview gangster life coach and advice columnist Susie Moore about living a life where you don’t need other people’s approval. 

Social media has blown up the comparison game we have *always* played in the back of our minds.Social media creates a much larger arena, with more “friends” than you’ve ever had, that you have access to 24/7. That has doom written all over it!

So let’s start capturing those lies that can come from it... that you are not good enough, that you are not good looking enough, that you are not talented enough, that you have nothing worth sharing, and a million other stories you’re telling yourself. Stop checking your likes and shake off the need for approval. It all starts by clicking play! 

Many many thanks to my dear friend Susie Moore. To check out Susie’s book and show her some love, visit https://susie-moore.com/.

A Candid Look At My Business Failures
1643

How do you handle failure? Do you let it completely crush you and stop you from moving forward? Or do you see it as an opportunity to learn and turn it into a success? 

The feeling of failure is something every entrepreneur is going to deal with in their business. *It’s inevitable, boo boo!*

We have the tendency to put this pressure on ourselves and if something doesn’t quite work the way we hoped for we see it as a failure. But it doesn’t have to be! 

In a Q&A I recently had on Facebook Live *yes boo, did you know I go live every Wednesday?* I talked about how to turn failure into success. It’s all about that mindset shift, friend. 

>>If we don't have failures, we don't have lessons.<< 

So click play if you’d like to hear about 3 lessons I’ve learned from my failures: 

  1. Don’t strive after perfection
  2. Listen to others
  3. Set priorities 

I’m all about sharing my journey so that you can learn from the mistakes I made. I’m having the best time growing our businesses and chasing our dreams together.

How to Get Lucky (In Life AND Business)
711

What are your thoughts:

  1. Do you see a successful business and think “boy that person got lucky”? 
  2. Or do you look at a successful business and see all the hard work that went in and believe that luck had nothing to do with it? 

When I look back at my career, the thought of being in the right place at the right time seems unlikely, but I can't help wondering if some divine intervention played a part. *Like how else would a girl from the hood be running a multi million dollar business?!

I believe that...

>>Luck is when preparation meets opportunity<< 

When you look around at the people who are creating waves in the world and the people who have wild and amazing amounts of fans on the internet, it wasn't because they were good looking, rich,funny or witty. These were people who loved what they did so much and made it successful. 

If you're sitting here looking at other people, asking yourself, why am I not as lucky as they are... I would ask you to dig a little deeper and ask why am I not doing the things that they are doing.

How To Build A Successful Business Without Money, Resources, Talent, or Connections
2744

Have you been telling yourself the lie that you need to have money, resources, talent or connections to run a successful business?

Boo I want you to throw that mindset right out the window and never look back. In fact, I want you to reverse that car and run over it a few times just to make sure you completely get rid of it

As a girl from the hood, I didn't grow up watching people build businesses. I didn't grow up actually thinking that entrepreneurship was a path in life that I could take. I lived in so much self doubt and created this lie that I had to have the money, resources, talent or connections to make my way in life. 

The thing I had to learn was that:

>>I just had to start with who I was, and with where I was at, and with what I had.<<

As a result of this lesson, I started taking simple actions and building habits from that mindset that radically transformed the way I approached my business and my life. 

Click play to continue learning about the habits I built early on as a business owner and still maintain to this day.

Who Cares What They Think of YOUR Business | Lularoe Convention Keynote + Q&A
3349

Want to know how to build a killer personal brand? Here’s the thing, it isn’t just important but rather  a necessity if you want your business to actually work. A business without a brand is like a Kardashian without her phone. #useless

All jokes aside, your brand is what sets you apart. A brand is expectations, memories, stories and relationships that lead into a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another. 

  • How does your business make them feel?
  • How are you serving your ideal customer?
  • How are you creating an amazing experience from start to finish for them?

>> A brand is not defined by a business, a brand is defined by a consumer's perception of that business. <<

So let me ask you: What are your followers saying about you? 

If you’re ready to start building your brand then CLICK PLAY to listen to the rest of my keynote presentation. 

Interested in knowing when I may be giving a keynote near you? You can view all of my upcoming speaking events at www.jasminestar.com/speaking .

What is more important: WHO you know or WHATyou know? 

I was recently asked that when I joined Travis Chappell on his podcast Build Your Network to discuss how to connect with people online to grow your business.

>> Buttercup, knowledge ain’t worth a dime if you don’t go out and share it.<< 

It’s 2020, people! We don’t need to follow the 1980s way of networking. There are so many opportunities to grow your business by just being you and putting your information out into the world.

THIS Is Where Everyone Quits | Social Curator Coaching Session
2475

Have you ever felt so exhausted, overwhelmed and confused that you wanted to throw in the towel? 

*Friend, I know I have and all of the ladies I brought in on my coaching call today have because it is NORMAL!*

 It doesn’t matter how tough you are, what skills you have, or where you are at in your life... it’s normal!  There isn't a single entrepreneur in the world who hasn't thought about quitting at least once.

When I first started my business, I did not have the kind of confidence I have today. In fact, one of the reasons I love these coaching calls is because I love hearing where everyone is at and encourage them in any way I can.

There is nothing I believe in more than teaching what I’ve learned, tested and tried to other business owners hustling hard to make their dreams a reality. 

We are all going to feel stressed and overwhelmed when we put ourselves out there.

>>However, success goes to us who remain undaunted and keep pushing themselves forward past the point where everyone else may quit.<<

So if you’re telling yourself maybe this isn't for me after all... I am here to tell you this is for YOU. You are meant to be here. You are meant to do this. You are intended to pursue your passion and you are here to create a life that makes you excited to get out of bed every morning.

You are meant to do the thing that you love because why would you ever settle for anything else? So please, please, please Buttercup: do not give up.

If this is resonating with you right now, it is because you need to hear it. So take a deep breath have a good cry, but then go out and chase your wildest dreams with reckless abandon because you can.

How To Get Paid To Be You | Interview with Laura Belgray
2732

Have ever wished you could make your business an expression of yourself and get paid for it?

In this episode, I dive into an interview with Laura Belgray, founder of the Talking Shrimp, and we discuss getting paid to be YOU. 

Friend, you don’t have to be living the Instagrammable life to make an impact. This is attainable for anyone, no matter what you look like, how you act, or what stage of life you are in...Your business should be an expression of yourself. 

>>Being authentically you is one of the simplest and simultaneously hardest things you could do in your marketing.<< 

It requires so much bravery because often, especially on the internet, we are attempted to tuck away the parts of ourselves that we don't really think will be accepted. 

  • It’s easier to only post your flawlessly contoured #IWokeUpLikeThis face on Instagram. 
  • It's easier to go live only when you have detailed notes and a good hair day. 
  • It's easier to only show up on stories when you've just cleaned your house and the kids aren’t running around like crazy

But you know what’s worth moreBeing relatable, engaging, & profitable, which comes by showing up consistently as YOURSELF. Click play to listen to all the tangible steps you can take to do that, and learn more about Laura Belgray in the show notes here: https://jasminestar.com/podcast/episode38

My Real Life Adoption Story
3244

Have you ever waited for something for so long that you begin to doubt that it’s in the cards for you? And if you’re lucky, when it finally happens your heart just bursts and all that waiting was totally worth it because you couldn’t possibly imagine another outcome? 

Well Buttercup, I want to take you on the journey of meeting my daughter for the first time. Yes, I just said my DAUGHTER. I waited years to say those words and today I get to say it publicly on this podcast. 

For years, my husband and business partner JD & I were determined to start our family through adoption. We looked into international adoption, foster to adopt, different agencies and attorneys. We were sooooo ready to will our experience as parents into existence but we had no idea the years of heartache and longing we would endure before we would be placed with our healthy, happy, and beautiful baby girl. 

So many of you have been on this journey with us and I can’t even begin to describe how your constant encouragement, prayers and presence impacted us during this season. But now we cannot WAIT to share with you the process we went through, the mindset that got us through it and the incredible story of the week that changed our lives forever.

You’ve lost all hope that you can find balance. 

>>Well I’m here to give you the assurance and proof that a balanced work & personal life can exist.<<

In an interview on the The Balanced Life Podcast, my good friend Robin Long dives deep into how my husband & business partner JD & I keep balance in our lives. 

She asks me everything from how JD and I divide our household responsibilities and deal with the pressures of having your life look a certain way, and so much more!

I want this podcast to encourage you to live with more freedom and less guilt. And to understand that we're all making choices each day to find our own unique sense of balance... there's not one way to do things.

How To Establish A Daily Routine That Will Profoundly Impact Your Life And Business
1261

Boo boo, do you ever feel like there’s not enough hours in the day? *I feel you!* 

I felt the same way until I established a daily routine that profoundly impacted my life and business. Get ready to take that sigh of relief and make the most out of your day in this step-by-step plan to make yours!

Before this schedule, I got caught up solely focusing on what was due in the moment and what my deadlines were rather than thinking about the bigger picture. 

So I started asking myself: 

  • Where do I want to go?
  • What do I want to create? 
  • What is going to change where I am now to where I want to be in the future?

And here’s the biggest thing I learned:  

>>Where you want to go in your business lies in setting your daily non negotiables.<<


If you’re ready to start building your schedule around non-negotiables and hear more about my favorite steps to setting a routine click play and visit the show notes at https://jasminestar.com/podcast/episode33! I want to give you the power to feel accomplished and refreshed after each and every day.

How to Remove Fear and Replace it with Messy Success with Cathy Heller
2252

Fear can be a crippling thing. I know that all too well. *Fear is like that uninvited guest at the party but NEVER FAILS to show up.* 

From birth, we have all developed survival skills and what often happens is that we approach everything in life with a strategy to avoid pain so we don’t put ourselves out there.

I get it friend, the stakes are high and vulnerability can be crippling. But every successful person I know has one thing in common: They give themselves permission to do the hard things, even when it isn't perfect and even when they are messy. 

>>I know you want to find the success you’ve always dreamed of… But it won’t come knocking on your door without the courage to embrace the mess.<<

In this episode, I interview one of my dear friends Cathy Heller, host of the podcast and author of Don't Keep Your Day Job. If you are ready to find your courage click play to listen and check out my show notes at https://jasminestar.com/podcast/episode31
