Are You Feeling Overwhelmed Launching Your Business?

You’re ready to design and control your life; to travel, spend more time with your family, and stop the daily 9-5 grind.

I totally get it!

Here’s the thing… you have to actually launch your business before you can control your life.

And to successfully launch your business,  you need to have intentional “tunnel vision”.

In This Episode:

If you keep experiencing problems while trying to launch your business, it doesn’t mean you’re failing as an entrepreneur.

Launching a business can be confusing, overwhelming, expensive, time-consuming, and stressful … if you’re not smart about it.

You just need a plan that will take you from start to launch in a strategic way, and that’s exactly what I’m breaking down for you today.

[Tweet “If you keep experiencing problems while trying to launch your business, it doesn’t mean you’re failing as an entrepreneur.“]

In this episode you’ll learn:
    1. The three focused stages of launching your business.
    2. How to prioritize your time, money, and efforts to help you stay on track.

Are You Ready to Merge Your Personal Style With Your Personal Brand?

In last week’s episode with Clarissa Grace, you learned that I have some serious styling issues.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t exactly scream professional.

The great thing about this episode is that you’re getting a raw peek into the process Clarissa takes her clients through so you can begin making some changes to your own personal style today.

[Tweet “Is it possible to find that balance between being comfortable with your personal style and showcasing the best of who you are in your personal brand?“]

What Does Your Style Say About Your Personal Brand?

I’ll be honest … I’m more comfortable in flip flops and a bathing suit than I am in what most people would consider appropriate professional attire.

I even had a PR person tell me they couldn’t work with me because my personal style fits in more at the beach than in the board room.

It’s just who I am.

But … is that negatively impacting my businesses?

In This Episode:

I first met Clarissa Grace about a year ago and I’m thrilled for you to meet her as well.

Clarissa has a passion for fashion and, at one point in time, she even had her own thriving clothing label.

Now, Clarissa helps female entrepreneurs find their dazzling core of confidence by merging their personal style with their personal brand.

In This Episode:

Gary Vaynerchuk is an expert at entrepreneurship, so I jumped at the chance to check out his latest book, Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence-and How You Can Too.

Truth is… this book made pick up my big-girl-britches and get my act together.

When I first started listening I got a little pissed. Gary shares how spending hours on twitter and publishing massive content on a regular basis is the way to go…

I immediately had thoughts like:

“You have no idea what it’s like to grow a business with babies at your feet”

“Yea right… 11 hours a day on twitter. Whatever…”

“There is no way I can apply these strategies…” 

And then I told my self to shut up and listen.

And instead, I developed serious strategies that would allow me to “Crush It” with kids, and not allow my reasons to become my excuses. 

So tune in with me and let’s “Crush It”

[Tweet “I developed serious strategies that would allow me to “Crush It” with kids, and not allow my reasons to become my excuses.”]

Do You Have Systems In Place For Running Your Family & Business Together?

Being an entrepreneur and taking care of a family can leave you feeling like you’re being torn in a thousand different directions.

When you’re with your family, you’re worried about work and when you’re working, you’re constantly interrupted by your family.

Here’s the kicker, though …

It’s not just your business. It’s your entire family’s business.

In This Episode:

In our family, there’s not just one entrepreneur parent, there’s actually two!

Between multiple businesses and three kids, we’d never get anything done if we didn’t stick to strict systems for running our family and businesses cohesively.

In fact, we’ve noticed that life starts to pretty much suck if we deviate from these systems for more than a week or two.

That’s why I want to share them with you.

[Tweet “It’s not just your business. It’s your entire family’s business.“]

Why You Can Expect:

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. The 4 systems we use in my entrepreneur family to keep things operating smoothly

Your Business Needs a Purpose

There’s been a recent shift away from a complete separation of business and purpose.

This shift is due to the fact that more and more consumers are choosing to give their money to brands and companies with missions or beliefs that align with their own.

To consumers, why you do what you do is now more important than what you actually do.

In This Episode:

Earth Day is rapidly approaching and, as an environmental activist and non-profit founder, I felt it was important to help you understand how to make your business one that truly matters and connects with your ideal clients and customers on a deeper level.

So, this week, we’re talking about three simple ways to infuse more meaning and purpose into what you do with your business.

[Tweet “To consumers, why you do what you do is now more important than what you actually do.“]

Why You Can Expect:

In this episode, I talk about:

  1. The importance of sharing your why in the form of a Statement of Beliefs
  2. Why you should give first in addition to giving back
  3. How you can give of your time in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming

The Power of Not Scaling!

There’s a lot of focus right now on business growth, diversifying your revenue streams, developing multiple services, programs, and courses, and a lot of other things that sound great in theory, but are not always the best move for your business.

I’m a firm believer in doing one thing so well that you become the go-to expert in your niche for that thing. Once you’ve mastered that one thing, then should you start to consider branching out.

Figure out your signature offer and then take the time to master it.

In This Episode:

Today John Lee Dumas and I are taking about the importance of doing things that don’t scale.

John Lee Dumas is the poster child for mastering one thing. After having conducted over 2,000 interviews for his podcast, Entrepreneurs On Fire, and creating a wildly successful podcast launch program, he’s the go-to podcasting expert.

In fact, this very podcast would’ve have launched if it weren’t for a conversation he and I had during an event in San Diego.

Now, John Lee Dumas is at the point where he can focus more on passion projects thanks to the success he’s seen from sticking to one thing for several years.

[Tweet “Figure out your signature offer and then take the time to master it.“]

Why You Can Expect:

In this episode, John Lee Dumas and I talk about:

  1. The importance of mastering one thing before doing anything else
  2. The various passion projects John Lee Dumas has been able to work on in recent years
  3. Why he decided to change the format of his podcast after 2,000 episodes
  4. Why losing isn’t a bad thing and how he hopes to help people find their one big win

Whether you’re feeling disappointed or excited with the results of quarter one… I’m here to help!

Each quarter of the year is a fresh start so it doesn’t matter what’s happened in the last 90 days. What matters is what you’re going to intentionally do in your business moving forward.

Today, We’re Talking About Something That’s Not Exactly Politically Correct.

I don’t hide the fact that I’m a Christian but I also don’t regularly talk about it on the podcast.

However, I do strongly believe in being transparent about your core beliefs when you’re in a place of leadership and, seeing that it’s Easter week, I felt the need to address the often-confusing dilemma of mixing your faith with your business.

In This Episode:

Alex Miranda is a former Miami nightclub promoter who, after having a “come to Jesus” moment, left the nightclubs behind to start the Daily Godpreneur; a personal development brand for Christian entrepreneurs.

One topic that’s always been of interest to me as a Christian entrepreneur, is the balance between needing money but not worshiping it.

During part of our conversation, Alex summed it beautifully when he said, “The profits are a byproduct of me doing what I’m born to do.”

[Tweet “The profits are a byproduct of me doing what I’m born to do.”]

Why You Can Expect:

In this episode, Alex and I talk about:

  • His professional and spiritual journey
  • How Alex sees the Bible as a book on how to run a business
  • The importance of discovering your calling and then shaping your business around it
  • How he takes his clients down the path of finding their calling
  • How to balance your business and being open about your faith
  • And 3 steps you can take right now to incorporate your spiritual life in your business operations.
