    S2 Ep. 20 Pouring Heart & Soul into Social Entrepreneurship [w/ Annie Boyd-Ramirez]

    S2 Ep. 20 Pouring Heart & Soul into Social Entrepreneurship [w/ Annie Boyd-Ramirez]

    You MATTER. Believe me...you matter. And this isn’t a pep talk. It’s reality.  There’s a reason the flight crew instructs you to put on your mask before helping anyone else.  If we don’t address our own state of being and need, it's hard to be of service to others consistently. And when you pour your heart and soul into an entrepreneurial baby, you have to have a way to replenish yourself so you can continue to nurture further.  My guest on the Ambition, Honey & Hustle podcast, Annie Boyd-Ramirez, Co-founder and executive director of Programa Velasco talked about that very thing.  And for this season finale, what a special treat, this fellow entrepreneur also happens to be my college roommate!!!

    S2 Ep. 19 Creating the "Family Economy" [w/ Ann Sieg]

     It was like she lifted the words right from my heart to her lips.  I'm talking about Ann Sieg, Founder and CEO of eCommerce Business School.  She and I had a conversation, that literally had me shifting in my seat because the resonance was so strong. Shifting your perspective, not only relative to realities of the COVID world we live in, but also the power of creating a family economy through business ownership.  Family economy...self-sustaining...yes..yes...yes...here for that all day.  The author of some of the most widely read books in the world on how to get new customers and prospects to come to you, Ann Sieg is considered one of the pioneers of attraction marketing.

    S2 Ep.18 From designing for Tyler Perry to designing for the WORLD [w/ Monica Allen]

    S2 Ep.18 From designing for Tyler Perry to designing for the WORLD [w/ Monica Allen]

     How many times have you said to yourself, "I'm so ready to be done."   Or maybe even typed up your resignation notice and have it just waiting in that special folder on your desktop to whip out at an uncertain date in the future?  Been there, and my guest on the show today, Monica Allen has too. Monica is a serial entrepreneur owning several businesses in the Westside Atlanta area. She is co-owner of Allen Professional Graphics Group and Deuce Equity Group with her husband Ethan King. She is also the founder and CEO of Monica Allen Interiors.   Allen Professional Graphics Group is a full service graphic design firm owning the brands Zeus’ Closet, stuff4GREEKS.com, and FratBrat.com.  From being given office space for their business by Tyler Perry in their early years to her and her husband creating design that now reaches around the world, in all of that, there were decision points.   At some point you may cross that corp life vs. paying the bills scenario, but what to do next and how to lay a successful path, we're talking about that on the show.

    S2 Ep. 17 Seeing the work you do as both ART and RESPONSIBILITY [w/ DJ Higgins]

    S2 Ep. 17 Seeing the work you do as both ART and RESPONSIBILITY [w/ DJ Higgins]

     Failure is freeing! Yelling that from the mountaintops!  See...so much learning is tied up in the things we fail at and as entrepreneurs, baby... failure is a part of the process of bringing success and value to the world.  On the show today, I had this very conversation with DJ Higgins. DJ is an award-winning filmmaker and university educator, having produced such thought-provoking films as Meet Mario, and Pasquales Magic Veal. All of his films take a conscious responsibility for what shows up on the screen.   We’ve each had our fair share of failures, and we'll both tell you this...what comes out on the other side is yours to benefit from.

    S2 Ep. 16 Falling into Entrepreneurship and Growing to LOVE Independence [w/ Colleen Falk]

    S2 Ep. 16 Falling into Entrepreneurship and Growing to LOVE Independence [w/ Colleen Falk]

    MINDSET IS EVERYTHING. And while it's the one we easily brush off in favor of pretty websites, must have lead magnets, "perfectly" priced offerings, and a hustle of a day prospecting. It is your best friend or your worst enemy, believe me from entrepreneurial experience on both sides of the coin.  My dear friend, Colleen Falk, entrepreneur, educator, and consultant knows all about it, and we're digging in on that very thing.  She has been an Entrepreneur, Educator and an Organizational Consultant for over 30 years.  Her philosophy of being a change agent whether you are an Entrepreneur, Student, Organization, or Friend has been her driving force throughout her life.    Living in Bemidji MN with her husband of 39 years and her 2 beautiful daughters who have given her 7 grandchildren and 2 awesome son-in-law’s, has fueled her fire!  Her toolbox brings her expertise in processes that help communicate and develop a plan for change, helping people and organizations succeed.  Understanding the challenges people need to face, preparing properly for the change and carrying the crucial implementation phase through to a successful conclusion are critical goals.

    S2 Ep. 15 A young passion turned 21+ location legacy [w/ Hayley Henning]

    Hayley Henning, CEO and founder of Characters.io, and I are having that very conversation about traveling the entrepreneurial journey at scale and her 21 location scale-up.  After starting Characters.io in 2008 at age 19, she took the concept from a single location to a successful 21-location franchise that performs thousands of events nation-wide, most recently pivoting into the virtual space as a result of COVID-19.
