With over 35k followers on Instagram and selling out workshops overnight, there's still doubts and fears that consume you as a business owner.
In this episode, I sit down again with Hope Taylor again to talk about those doubts and fears. It's an amazing raw look into Hope's business, her fears, and the really vulnerable struggles she's dealt with recently. Hope shares how her doubts and fears have changed over the past 4 years as she's grown her business, as well as the doubts she continues to struggle with no matter the size of her success. Hope also shares about a really hard season she experienced in her business about a year ago. No matter where you're at in your business, this conversation is for everyone.
Social media is hard. It's become this constant in our lives that's less exciting and fun and more heavy and loaded with comparison.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't struggling with Instagram. Between the constant comparison and the addiction to constantly being plugged in, I've developed a really unhealthy relationship with it. In today's episode, I'm sharing about the comparison vortex, how I've found myself getting lost in social media, my unhealthy relationship with Instagram, and what I'm doing right now to help.
There can be this pressure to have it all figured out before you begin. Sometimes, though, the best thing you can do is to just start and learn as you go.
In this episode, I sit down with Rachel Allene to hear her story. She shares about how feeling unfulfilled in her career after college led to her quitting her job with no plans other than to start a business. With no business plan, no business bank account, and nothing "official", she set up office at her dining room table and got to work.
In a short amount of time, Rachel went from photographing weddings to running a successful product-based business. We talk about separating your worth from the numbers, giving yourself grace on the hard days, and learning as you go. Rachel also recently announced that she was pregnant with her and her husband's first child. So, we talk about the fears and uncertainty around this new chapter of her life and her plans for business in the coming 9 months.
For many of us, starting a business means having the opportunity and freedom to build a career that aligns with the rest of our life. However, doing so is harder than you think.
In this episode, I'm sitting down for another conversation with Kaye Namba to talk about how we can build businesses in synchronicity with our lives. We talk about what this looks like, how authenticity plays a role, and how this can be even more difficult as a mom/parent.
If you're feeling a disconnect between your business and the rest of your life, you're not alone. This is a common problem among female entrepreneurs. And it takes a lot of active, engaged work to truly build a business you love that works in synchronicity with the rest of your life.
The good news? It's possible. The great news? When you do it, that's when you find true success.
The journey to finding and owning your most authentic self is a hard one. What's even more difficult, though, is owning that authenticity even as you, and your life, are changing.
In this episode, I'm sharing some things that have been changing in my life over the past year that I haven't talked about much on the podcast. Owning your authentic self as that authentic self is constantly changing is really hard. If you're there right now, you're not alone. In this episode, I'm sharing with you about the disconnect I've felt in my life over the past year, how much life has been changing, and how I'm learning to embrace it authentically.
Owning your voice means giving those different than you the space to own their voice, as well.
In today's episode, I sit down with Reina Pomeroy to dive into her story. Reina takes us back to the over-achieving, college-aged Reina who was on a path to go into law. She walks us through her career from working in retail management to politics to what she's doing now, as a Life & Biz Success Coach.
She shares about the shift she made in her career from being behind-the-scenes to owning her voice. We talk about managing your ego amidst success, diversity in the creative entrepreneurial community, and Reina's recent open letter to the creative community.
Oftentimes, the hardest parts of our journeys teach us the most beautiful of lessons.
In today's episode, I sit down with Lauren Harbury to talk about why 2016 was such a hard year for her. She shares about some really big changes she made in her life, how she hit a really low point during it all, and how it changed her writing.
Lauren talks about quitting her job, quitting her relationship, moving across the country, and moving into her first apartment by herself. She shares about how the hard parts led to her sharing more through her writing and how that led to her connecting more with her readers.
This is one of those conversations that just does all the good for you heart ... because ((praise hands)) to knowing you're not alone. Am I right?!
Or maybe the title should be Self-Deprecation in Business. 'Cause that's the real problem that needs addressing.
In today's episode, I'm sharing about why self-deprecation feels more normal than self-love and how a lack of self-love is showing up in our businesses and online platforms. We need to have this conversation. We need to normalize self-love. And we need to be the ones willing to lead the charge. Ya with me?
Our hardest moments often define our most beautiful truths.
In today's episode, in celebration of the podcast's 1 year birthday, the tables are turning and I'm sharing my story. Naturally, I'm taking you way back to middle school and walking you through some of the hardest parts of my story and sharing how they define so much of who I am today. I'm talking about my wild career journey after college, how I made the decision to close my first business after only two years, and how the podcast began.
Being your most authentic self means you're not going to be everyone's cup of tea. And for chronic people pleasers, that's terrifying.
In this episode, I sit down with Liza Wilde and dive into the struggles of being authentically you as a chronic people-pleaser - in life and in business. We talk about how social media plays a role in this struggle and what's holding Liza back from being that authentic, "no-diet" version of herself online.
Moment of honesty: I had an emotional breakdown last week. I'm talking ugly tears and near-panic-attack, people.
The heavy controversy that's surrounded the recent election of Donald Trump and him taking office has created a lot of disconnect in my own life. I've struggled with knowing how and when to speak up and what to say when I do. I've struggled with bridging the divide with people in my life who don't agree with me or have the same values/beliefs as I do. I've struggled to know where to begin and what to do.
And I know that I'm not the only one. So, in this episode, I'm sharing with you my struggles, my low point, and how I've decided to move forward to try to bridge this huge divide in my own life.
What happens when the trajectory you've planned out for your life suddenly changes and everything feels outside of your control?
In today's episode, I sit down with my sweet friend, Danae Edmonds, to hear her story. Her senior year of college, she had a stroke. And then, another. It completely bulldozed the plans she had for after graduation. Danae shares about this part of her story that she's never shared about publicly before.
She also shares about the inspiration behind her digital magazine, Speaking of Everything. Three years into running the magazine on the side, she still doesn't have plans to take it full-time. Danae so beautifully points out that sometimes doing something for ourselves, for our own creativity, is more important than trying to force it to become something bigger.
