The Steps for Turning Your Idea Into a Successful Business

If you’re feeling scared that no one will buy from you, you’re not alone because the majority of us have this fear!
Overcome Overwhelm and Frustration to Create and Sell Your Business Idea!
If you feel like you’re sitting on some amazing business ideas but you don’t know what to do about it, then this episode is for you!
Back in 2005 when I started my first business doing mobile phone unlocking, I had no idea what I was doing or how to make it successful. I just winged it until I managed to make it work.
A few years later, when I came up with the idea for the Female Entrepreneur Association, I was drowning in doubt and wondering to myself, “who am I to do this?!”.
It felt so much easier to procrastinate and just do nothing about it, so I stayed stuck for 3 whole years before I actually went ahead and did something about it!
So many of us are sitting on amazing ideas, but sometimes we just can’t get out of our own way to make the progress we desire.
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed, stuck or frustrated, the good news is that there is a way to get out of your own way and create the success that you desire!

How to Work Less and Achieve More
How do we get stuff done that gets results?
So often we end up feeling really busy doing a lot of stuff but not actually getting results. I get asked a lot how do I manage my time effectively juggling children, building a business, or having a full time job and building a business.
It can be so crazy to have another priority and a business, it’s overwhelming at times - for me, balancing being a mum and having a business has been a real struggle at times.
Manage my time effectively and getting things done, I felt so irritated with myself that I wasn’t making progress - you know how it feels when you’ve got these big dreams and goals but you don’t seem to be getting anywhere with them. It’s so annoying and frustrating.
I had a big shift in realisation that have hugely changed the way I approach managing my time and I wanted to share it with you.
The fact that you’re busy and you also have other priorities outside of your business doesn't mean that you can’t build a wildly successful business - you definitely can! And I'm going to show you how :)
Find Your Niche and Unlock Your Unique Path to Success (With John Lee Dumas)
When it comes to learning or achieving anything new in life, the process is always so much easier and quicker when you follow in the footsteps of someone who has done it before you, rather than trying to figure it all out for yourself.
Success leaves clues, and the achievements of others before you can be the shortcuts to your own success. But it’s also so important to find out what your own version of success is, what John Lee Dumas - of the amazing Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast - likes to call, your “zone of fire”.
Since 2012 John has been producing a daily podcast where he has now interviewed over 3,000 of the most incredible entrepreneurs such as Amy Porterfield, Lewis Howes, Marie Forleo, Tim Ferris, Ramit Sethi, Neil Patel, Barbara Corcoran and Pat Flynn to name a few.
That was his zone of fire.
Committing to doing that podcast every day not only helped John build a huge multi-million dollar business, it also gave him insight into the roadmap that all these entrepreneurs seem to have in common when it comes to creating success.
So in this episode John and I talk about:
How he took 10 years of knowledge and 3,000 conversations with amazing entrepreneurs and turned them into 17 steps for success for his upcoming book, The Common Path To Uncommon Success. How John started out as an officer in the U.S. Army and then spent 6 years switching careers and looking for his zone of genius. Why making a commitment to creating a daily podcast changed his life. Finding your “big” idea that aligns with your unique zone of fire. Overcoming impostor syndrome and committing to your ideas. Why John has shared his monthly income reports since day one. Why it’s so important to get clear on what success looks like for you and how John runs his business in alignment with the kind of lifestyle he wants to live. The biggest lie that many experts share. You can pre-order John’s book, The Common Path To Uncommon Success right here

Carrie Green is a very special person in my life
What a brilliant podcast! I absolutely would recommend She Means Business (the book as well!) to anyone who is feeling a bit stuck and knows deep down that they are capable of more.
I was in this position last year when working my corporate 9-5 job and listening to Carrie inspired me hugely to take the leap and begin my entrepreneurial journey. She helped me to realise that I can take control of my life and dream bigger - I didn’t have to settle anymore.
Since then I have rediscovered many skills I didn’t know I had, reconnected with my creative side, whilst joining Carrie’s Female Entrepreneur Association (FEA) too where I’ve met so many incredible women who have achieved so much!
Carrie is so relatable and clearly has a huge passion for helping other women realise their capabilities and create success. She is also super friendly, down to earth and honest about her business journey. Thank you Carrie, I couldn’t have done it without you!
My new favourite podcast!
I can’t believe I have only just found Carrie.. she is inspiring, motivational, super intelligent and so good to listen to. I love a podcast when I run and this makes me look forward to my runs... 🙏
Really informative and brilliantly presented
This is really inspirational and I can’t wait to listen to the other ones
