    Ep. 66 - Living On Purpose with Tanya Dalton

    The balance of spontaneity and structure
     
    Have you ever found yourself stuck, when trying to imagine what you want the future to be? You can’t quite see beyond where you currently are. What did you do about it? This was a thought Tanya Dalton experienced that led her to writing her best-selling book, On Purpose. 
     
    When you think of the days where you feel the most empowered and creative, what did those days look like? What did and didn’t you get done? We have all been guilty of thinking that the only way we will reach our goals is by packing our days full of the steps we need to take to get to the finish line. Tanya Dalton joined me this week to break that myth. 
     
    Each day, Tanya will sit and decide what she wants to do that day, what tasks she wants to get done, and any milestones she wants to reach, but what helps her decide what needs to get done? The way she feels that day. Ready to take back your day and start to feel the power of spontaneity? Grab a seat, get out your task list, and let’s learn about the power of balancing flexibility with your commitments.

    Ep. 64 - Million Dollar Wrap Up

    Ep. 64 - Million Dollar Wrap Up

    Scaling Without Failing, Million Dollar Advice 
     
    Can you believe we are wrapping up another season? I am so fortunate to have this opportunity to connect with so many inspirational women and to conclude this chapter, I have brought back into the studio our very own “Future Lisa Larter” –  Cass Bald! In this episode we asked our viewers to submit questions that they had and Cass turned  the mic on me to share just what those questions were (no pressure, right??).
     
    Do you ever look at a successful business and think, “Of course they achieved so much, they have ____”? The truth is, there are a lot of wins and losses that occur before you see the finished product. One of the biggest hurdles entrepreneurs face is the internal discussions we have with ourselves to determine what we should or shouldn’t do and what our limitations actually are. Speaking from experience, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows; it was a lot of work.  
     
    It’s bittersweet to wrap up this season, but I am so excited for what’s to come. Let’s dive into the last conversation of Million Dollar Mindshare with the lovely Cass Bald by pressing that play button!
     
     
    What’s in This Episode
    You don’t need to be “good at math”  to learn your numbers 
    Understanding your factory capacity 
    Becoming comfortable with charging what you’re worth 
    “Investing in where you are” versus “where you want to be”
    Scaling and maintaining a million dollar business 
    The importance of understanding “root causes” when problem solving

    Ep. 63 - How Boomerang Ideas Lead to Million Dollar Businesses with Jereshia Hawk

    Ep. 63 - How Boomerang Ideas Lead to Million Dollar Businesses with Jereshia Hawk

    How To Get A “Yes” Without Meeting Criteria
     
    I want you to pause for a moment and think back to when you were younger and ask yourself two questions. 1) What did you want to be when you grew up, and 2) Why did you choose that? There is a mindset most of us have that directs us to what we “can” and “can’t” do based on our circumstances.  My guest this week, Jereshia, has done what some people would consider “impossible”. As a woman of colour, she broke barriers by becoming a pipeline engineer and transitioned from there to owning a multi seven figure business!
     
    Have you ever considered accepting or applying for an opportunity only to stop yourself because you felt you weren’t smart enough? Jereshia shares how these insecurities initially held her back, and without even having the experience or credentials to be eligible, still acquired the position! (You read that right! She did the impossible!). Listen in to find out what it was that helped her win in a situation where she didn’t think she could.  
     
    Let’s assume for a moment that you’ve accomplished everything you set out to do. What comes next? Do you feel fulfilled or do you find yourself wondering if there’s something more waiting for you? Achieving success does not mean that you can’t achieve more. Jereshia will be the first to tell you that after she became a well respected engineer she knew that  she wanted more out of life – and then she got it!
     
    If you want more out of life too, then press pause on your day, and press play on this episode!
     
     
    What’s in This Episode
    The importance of articulating your value 
    Overcoming self-made mental barriers
    Listening to boomerang ideas
    Recognizing patterns
    Leaving a corporate position to try something new
    Charging what you’re worth
    Discover your calling in life and become brave enough to answer it
    Unconscious competence

    Ep. 62 - Amassing Wealth with Mimi Dew

    Ep. 62 - Amassing Wealth with Mimi Dew

    Do what you’re good at and let other people do the rest 
     
    Have you heard the phrase “Jack of all trades, master of none”? This is a very common mindset that a lot of business owners subconsciously have. You already wear a lot of hats in your company and when you add more than you should, it can actually prevent growth and longevity. That’s where my special guest this week, Mimi Dew, comes in. She and her team help entrepreneurs stay on track with their business and their goals.
     
    One thing that I really admire about Mimi (aside from her Louis Vuitton bag) is how she and her husband built their business together. For a lot of people, assembling anything from Ikea with your spouse can add stress on your relationship. So how do you make a working relationship work on top of a marriage? Mimi and her husband have proved that this is entirely possible by recently celebrating their 30th anniversary! 
     
    Mimi is living proof that you decide your own destiny. Her journey shows that it doesn’t matter where you come from, you control where you’re going. If you are feeling “trapped” or “incapable” of greatness, then all you need to do is press play and discover for yourself what it takes to obtain it.
     
     
    What’s in This Episode
    Finding success in business as a first generation immigrant
    Acquiring the “right people” for the “right job” 
    Fixed fees versus commissions
    Growing from poverty to sought-after professional
    Building a successful business as an entrepreneurial couple 
    The “Money Story”

    Ep. 61 - Million Dollar Mentors

    Ep. 61 - Million Dollar Mentors

    Become a million dollar business by hiring a mentor
     
    You’ve heard us talk about mentors on the podcast before and the value that they bring, but have you invested in one yourself? Perhaps you think that there are so many resources available that this is an unnecessary expense, but the truth is, what works for one entrepreneur does not necessarily work for another. Your journey is your own, and I share in this episode how my “first pick” mentor turned out to not be the one who helped me get to where I am today. 
     
    I know what you’re thinking, “Lisa, I listen to your podcast and I’m an avid reader. I don’t need a mentor” (Which is fantastic, thank you!).  In this episode I’m going to explain why that isn’t going to work out the way you think it should. The reason for that is because we read books to learn information instead of gaining insights that we can implement.
     
    In this episode I want to help you realize that you’re not alone on your journey, there are many others who are not “there yet” either. You are an inspiration to others, whether you realize it or not. I’m ready to get started, and if you are too, press play and let’s do this!
     
     
    What’s in This Episode
    Investing in tactics over strategy 
    Finding a mentor whose values align with yours
    Scarcity mindset vs. abundance mindset
    Change is uncomfortable but necessary for growth
    Assessing risk before investing big
    The one thing that is  holding you back in your business

Priceless.

Just WOW! Each episode is jam packed with so much helpful information, which Lisa shares so generously, I’m blown away. I have at least five light bulb moments with each listen, and I have a feeling I’ll be coming back to them over and over again. If you want to learn about business building,this is the place to be!

She Talks Business

Every week I get something BIG out of the podcast. I’ve read a number of Lisa’s recommended books and they have also changed the way I do business. I wouldn’t have made those changes or looked deeper into my numbers without Lisa’s voice in my ear once a week! I look forward to the new weekly episodes and find myself looking forward to walking the dog in the rain so I can listen and learn!
