    All good things must come to an end...

    All good things must come to an end...

    Karly and Lisa share a brave, honest and raw conversation about speaking your truth, stepping into the discomfort that comes with clarity, and putting friendship first.

    This is the final episode of Keeping Good Company for the foreseeable future. It is a powerful example of the goodness to be found in honouring yourself, honouring the differences in the people you love, being brave and Keeping Good Company.

    1:45 Karly and Lisa look back to where their joint venture began. Karly reflects on the extreme anxiety she was experiencing, and Lisa recalls the shaky situation her family was in. In their moment of need, they came together, launched a mastermind and podcast, and shared their personal magic with other inspiring business women.

    4:55 The conversation turns to clarity and the letting go that necessarily follows having a better understanding of yourself. Lisa highlights the increasing clarity they have both gained around what they each stand for. They share courageously the fears that arise when your vision doesn't align with that of your biz partner, and how they have been shaming themselves for those differences.

    7:30 Lisa and Karly look at their differences in a positive light, noting what they have been able to do for other women by each bringing their unique talents to the mastermind. Lisa shares that by coming together with Karly, she was able to trust her own ability to provide practical business help.

    10:00 Karly and Lisa put their hearts on their sleeves to share how this conversation and their growth feels: being nervous and yet courageous enough to speak their truth, feeling the friction of misalignment, and wanting to step fully into their own power. Karly highlights the courage and compassion required to have these conversations and continue to show up for one another despite all the 'life' that happens.

    15:30 Lisa shares the vision that is lighting her up but would give Karly hives. Karly shares what is lighting her soul on fire but is far from Lisa's ideal business retreat. They chat about how these differences feel and navigate it all with honesty, self-awareness and compassion.

    21:25 Lisa and Karly riff on using 'what feels good?' as a compass.

    24:45 When a friendship is more important than a business. Karly and Lisa chat about the fears that have arisen out of letting go of the mastermind and how fear can cause us to hold on to things longer than feels good. Includes a great chat about who gets to be Oprah and who gets to be Gayle!

    27:10 Karly and Lisa affectionately fumble through their goodbye to the podcast and business. It's over, bitches - not really... but really. They reflect on what it means to keep good company and how they've honoured that here.

    30:10 Karly invites you to step into your own power, get clarity for yourself and then be courageous enough to step into that.

    Bringing back the spark - when business feel a bit groundhog day

    Bringing back the spark - when business feel a bit groundhog day

    Is your business feeling a bit like Groundhog Day? On this episode of Keeping Good Company Lisa and Karly explore one of the realities of entrepreneurship: when the work no longer feels new and exciting. They look at when being a thrill-seeking entrepreneur doesn't align with sound business decision-making, and consider ways to inject more fun into the things that work but might not be as exciting as you'd like them to be.

    1:44 Lisa shares where she is at with her Small Steps Membership and choosing a fresh and exciting launch strategy over her proven and successful existing approach.

    8:25 Lisa and Karly delve into their own versions of being overly attached to their businesses. They share their wisdom around when this might present a problem for entrepreneurs, including self-esteem issues, pricing difficulties, growing resentment and having boundaries.

    14:08 Karly provides a cool analogy for business success when you're a flighty entrepreneur: musicians with a number 1 hit need to be willing to perform that hit night after night - and find ways to make it new and exciting for themselves.

    16:30 Karly and Lisa jam on feeling like you've grown beyond where your business is focused, or just that it's feeling stale, and coming back to the 'why'. Lisa shares how the recent changes in her have moved her away from the person she was when she began Small Steps.

    19:40 Does it make business sense? Moving on to the next thing and the next thing may be exciting, but it doesn't necessarily make great business sense. Karly shares her a perspective on embracing the past/present instead of shutting it down and moving on, thus creating space for fun.

    21:15 Karly inspires with where she is at in her business right now. With revenue consistency in the bag, she has given herself permission to be immerse in play and creativity, with no expectations attached. She explains that the creation mode brings the love in which fuels her to do the other jobs which may not feel as energising.

    24:00 Karly and Lisa remind us that there are seasons and we can honour the season we're in, whether that be stability and structure, or birth and creation. Lisa highlights that sometimes you're in the season of uncertainty, but that season too will end.

    26:00 Karly and Lisa invite you to find ways to bring the fun back in, or keep the stale things ticking so you have more freedom to find fun elsewhere.
