For business owners looking for a better way in work and life. Season 3 is all about the money... Mindset, managing money, getting paid. We're opening the conversation, feeling the discomfort and growing out loud.
S3. E10. The fear and shame around money conversations. We're owning up.
10 episodes talking about the money and there were so many things we didn't get to. This week we open up about the money conversations we DIDN'T get into and we explore our reluctance to chat on certain subjects. Clients asking for their money back - cringe. The trend of sharing income reports and the fear of being judged for how much we take in - double cringe. Admin, pensions, financial planning - ooh la la - and the big ole' shame we feel around financial illiteracy. Please tune in to this season's final episode and enjoy!

See you in season 4
S3. E9. Does scarcity mindset hold you back?
Scarcity mindset is one of those terms that gets thrown around a lot, but what does it mean and how does it get in the way of us earning the lovely money?
In this episode, we talk about scarcity, abundance, and our own experiences on how it's shown up in business and life.

S3. E07 - Getting clients online in 2022. How can we show up and sell?
Showing up online to sell your services has felt a little off lately. After a prolonged period of pandemic, with the outbreak of conflict in Ukraine... and so many other world-shaking things going on globally and personally, it seems tone-deaf to carry on, business as usual, post and promoting.
We have a slightly different episode for you this week. It's a replay of a group call with fellow solo, service-based businesses. We discuss the
showing up authentically on social media
the brand decision to comment on world events or not
the sensitive approach to publicly sharing about donations you've made as a business
and how the world of social media feels like a marketplace, where the 'friend request' immediately lines you up for a sales pitch!
Thanks to everyone who joined the call.

S3. E04. - Pricing your services in a way that allows you to do your best work.
Short of plucking a number out of the air, what is the best way to choose a price for your services? In this episode we talk about 3 different approaches to pricing and what number is "enough" to enable you to do your best work? Be sure to check out https://growoutloud.biz/ for this week's worksheet.
S3. E02 - Managing your money as a business owner. A conversation about the Profit First system.
Profit First! It's a book and a system for managing your money as a business owner. Honestly, it makes dealing with your finances a lot less scary.
Eadaoin has been using this system since 2018 and Claire is in the starting stages of setting it up for her business. This week we discuss the nitty-gritty of the system and how we're applying it in our own businesses.
We've made you a cheat sheet too. Pop over to the Grow Out Loud site to get it: https://growoutloud.biz/signup/
