    Upleveling Is Messy

    Upleveling Is Messy

    Upleveling is Messy.

    This was a popular post I put up on Instagram.

    It flopped on LinkedIN — like everything does.

    But this podcast episode is about upleveling.

    What does that even mean?

    It means to doing the hard work to get YOU or YOUR BUSINESS to the next level.

    It means you have hit your upper limit — or your business has -- and THAT's what this episode is all about.

    Taking Up Space On Social Media

    Taking Up Space On Social Media

    So this week I want to talk about I want to start actually a series on the visibility blockers that I had talked about previously and I'm going to go further and further into each of them in this 10-part series.

    The first one that I'm gonna talk about is feeding the algorithms.

    One of the biggest blockers that we actually have to wrestle with is the algorithms themselves.

    But that doesn’t mean we should quit social.

    Social is a powerful, powerful visibility tool.

    Discover Your Inner Heroine and Build a Thriving Business

    Discover Your Inner Heroine and Build a Thriving Business

    Today I'm going to talk about what I'm calling the Shero’s Entrepreneurial Journey.

    So, the Shero’s Entrepreneurial Journey is a version of the Heroine's Journey, a storytelling archetype that I'm proposing here today that can help you transform your business, and very possibly your life.

    And I'm also going to touch on an aspect of the Hero's Journey as well.

    I know you've heard of the Hero's Journey, popularized by Joseph Campbell, which follows the path of a male hero who faces challenges undergoes transformation and returns home with all this great new wisdom and power and but there's another version of this that I really strongly love and prefer, and that's the Heroine’s Journey made famous by Maureen Murdoch, who wrote a book called The Heroine’s Journey. 

    So the Heroine’s Journey is a storytelling archetype that focuses on a female protagonist, the Shero, and that's what I want to focus on here today. 

    This is connected to the work that I have done -- to become a business strategist and courage coach. It's also very related to the work I do with my clients. I see this journey unfolding for my clients over and over, and it doesn't even matter where you are on the journey.

    10 Visibility Blockers Stopping You From Playing Bigger

    Visibility is absolutely key in your business.

    If you want more success, more revenue and more sales, people need to know you exist. Period.

    The more visibility you have for attracting and meeting -- and connecting with -- new fans, new followers, new potential clients, new customers, the more money you're going to make, the more authority you're going to have, the more demand for your work.

    5 Fear Illusions Holding Your Business Back

    5 Fear Illusions Holding Your Business Back

    BRAVING THE BUSINESS ARENA -- FREE MASTERCLASS: https://shawnfink.com/masterclass/

    Fear is always the star.

    I'm in a situation right now where Fear wants to be the superhero of the story.

    I refuse to let it.

    I don't believe in feeling the fear and doing it anyway -- that doesn't work for me or people like me who are highly sensitive and aware of emotions.

    Instead, I try to point out to my clients that a lot of times, it's not really fear -- or imposter complex -- that is the actual issue.

    Fear is often the blanket problem we toss at things that scare us or that may spark change.

    But, I've never met a fear conversation that didn't have something more deeply rooted lying underneath that is the real obstacle.

    Let's dive into that a bit more this week ...

Love this podcast

Shawn has so much wisdom to share, and this podcast is a great way for busy mum's to take in some powerful ideas to help make motherhood more joyful. I love to listen while I potter in the kitchen or while playing with my kids -- It is like listening to a good friend, someone who really gets what life is like for mamas like me, and knows how to turn it around when things are tough.
