I've always drawn so many life lessons from fitness. There is an incredible amount of mental fortitude required to push your body past your own self-imposed limits. But watching the extraordinary humans run the New York City marathon was a whole other level. In today's episode, I'm sharing 5 things I learned from witnessing the incredible strength and drive from these runners. I hope this episode inspires you the way watching them inspired me! Enjoy.
Unpopular Opinion: The Niche is Dead
In the 13+ years that I've been creating, re-imagining, and refining my brand, The Champagne Diet, I've witnessed many "experts" and coaches offer different approaches to business building. Some I've agreed with, and some have been downright damaging.
One of the more popular approaches is finding your niche. And while I am not totally against niches, I don't think they are for everyone. If you've found something super specific and it's working for you and your audience - that's wonderful!
I just know I could not do the exact same thing for the past 13 years, and almost every single one of my business clients has come to me feeling suffocated by the idea that she has to choose some specialized segment of her market and never veer off course.
In today's episode, I'm sharing my thoughts on why the "niche" is dead and how we can begin to look at our brands from a completely different, more creative, empowered perspective.

How to Infuse More Fun and Creativity in Your Business
☆ Click here to join ICONIC! Doors are closing TODAY ☆
There seems to be this narrative going on in the world of entrepreneurship where you're supposed to niche down on this one very specific thing, go 10x on that thing, drown yourself in webinars and content from others who are also doing that very specific thing, burn yourself out, and move onto the next huge goal before you've ever even come up for air after achieving the previous one.
I am here to dispel that myth.
In fact, that myth makes me crazy. It limits our creativity, stifles our natural talents, and sucks the fun out of life and business. In today's episode, I'm giving you some tips on how to have more fun in your business. Because after all, isn't that the point?
Join MY FREE Personal Branding + Confidence Masterclass/Champagne Happy Hour
I'm popping in with a quick announcement to invite you to my FREE mini masterclass/champagne happy hour!
I don't think I knew over 13 years ago that I was building a brand when I started The Champagne Diet blog. I was simply expressing myself to the world, sharing the things that I loved (like my passion for champagne, Chanel, and the celebration of life), and bringing others along with me as I created something fun and unique. Now I bet when you have a glass of champagne, you can't not think of me ;)
In my now nearly decade and a half of doing what I do, I have become passionate about personal branding and the mindset needed to create a memorable one that has a massive impact and brings in massive income.
That's why I'm so thrilled for tomorrow's FREE mini masterclass where I'll be sharing a sneak peek of my brand new course ICONIC. To be honest, this course began as a personal branding course, but has evolved into SO much more.
If you're an entrepreneur (at any level) who is ready to:
Gain total clarity on your brand vision so you no longer feel overwhelmed, blocked, or stuck.
Cultivate the confidence to raise your prices, ask for the sale, and share your offerings and products with passion and certainty.
Raise your vibration and establish new beliefs around what is possible for you.
Truly know your worth, what you bring to the table, and develop the discernment to know what serves you and what does not in your life and your business.
Then you cannot miss this FREE event on Tuesday, 10/5 at 4 PM ET.
RSVP here and you will receive an email with the private link for the event :)
If you miss the live event, we'll send you a link with the replay!
