    Empathy is defined as “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” Maybe being empathetic comes naturally to you — or maybe you need an occasional reminder to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. But all in all, being empathetic can help make the world a better place; it can help us to understand one another better and to lift one another up in intentional and thoughtful ways. In today’s episode, we want to focus on being empathetic toward our customers and clients. Business coaches and researchers alike have agreed that being empathetic can make you a better business owner. But why — and how?

    025: Elevate Your Website TODAY - 7 Actionable Steps

    Your website is like your digital storefront — a place you can welcome your Ideal Clients to, a place where you can form a real connection with your visitors, and a place where you can openly and honestly sell your products and services. Over the past 6 years, we’ve observed that websites have become so much more than an online space to showcase products and services; they’ve become a place for building and fostering community, they’ve become a more solid and more detailed foundation from which small businesses can truly expand and grow. Websites have become a critically important tool for small businesses: they can help to communicate your message, connect you with your audience, and sell your products and services, — or they can nudge visitors to move on and continue exploring their options. And for so many small business owners, the question remains: How can I elevate my website? How can I make my website a more accurate reflection of my knowledge, experience, and expertise — so visitors know I’m capable of providing a really elevated experience? That’s why today, we’re sharing 7 actionable ways you can elevate your website.

    024: Healthy Boundaries for Small Business Owners

    As small business owners, we tend to feel very connected to our businesses; our businesses are a blend of our creativity, our passion, and our work — so it can be challenging to separate who we are from what we do. The results of not having boundaries can vary. Maybe you’ve found your mood is sometimes correlated with the highs and lows of your small business — or maybe your sense of self or self-worth seem tied to the performance of your business. In today’s episode of With Grace and Gold: The Podcast, we're going to talk about boundaries and how we can create healthy boundaries as small business owners. With healthy boundaries, we can build a foundation for successful and sustainable small business ownership.
