    Lessons Learned: 4 Things We'd Do Differently with Erica Courdae

    Often in the world of content marketing, we witness what people did well, what their successes were, their wins, what worked.
    But when we only get messages about what worked, it leaves behind the beauty and the lessons learned from what didn’t work and what we would do differently today.
    Erica Courdae joins India for a discussion about failure, what they’d do over if they could, and why they’re actively viewing some of these events in a different way.
    In this discussion:
    What Erica and India wish they had done sooner How fear of failure and self-trust have impacted their decisions Why curiosity and willingness to experiment are essential to doing things differently Connect with India Jackson and Flaunt Your Fire:

    Consent Based Business Practices with Kelly Diels

    Consent Based Business Practices with Kelly Diels

    Many of us have experienced a breach of consent.
    Whether it’s the person who’s immediately in your DMs trying to sell you something the moment you added them as a connection on social media, or the person who gives you a hug that lasts a little too long when you reach out your hand for a handshake, we know what that breach feels like.
    And the context for consent goes beyond bodily autonomy. Consent matters in our businesses.
    Kelly Diels joins India to discuss integrating consent into your business, how the concept of refreshing consent has evolved the way she shows up online, and common mistakes and misconceptions around creating a culture of consent in your marketing.
    Content Note: This episode contains non-detailed mentions of the experience childhood sexual violence.

    Posting photos or stories about the kids in our lives has become habitual for many of us. We need to move away from making assumptions, and instead, toward a place of consent and autonomy. Pause on the Play®, The Community members Stacie Lampkin  and Shannon Collins have facilitated a workshop where they encourage folks to re-examine our approach in how we share about children in online spaces. 
    Whether you have children in your life or not, this workshop will support you in reconsidering your why in how we interact with children from a place of respecting their full consent, especially around publicly posting private information. Community members have evergreen access to this workshop replay and our entire library of resources.

    ​Integrating Values Into The Art Of Online Business with Rick Mulready

    ​Integrating Values Into The Art Of Online Business with Rick Mulready

    What would it mean to have a business that feels as good to you as it appears on the outside?
    How would it feel to have a business that is aligned with your values and is creating and infusing those values into everything it does? That supports and protects people from all backgrounds, especially those who have underrepresented and marginalized identities? 
    Rick Mulready joins India to reflect on his journey of bringing his values into his business and his podcast without sacrificing success or growth, and how his approach to integrating his values into the business continues to evolve over time.
    In this discussion:
    How to use your platform to explicitly communicate your values How social media turns values into a shallow commodity used for approval Why your values need to be infused into how you show up on your platform and in your content Why conventional business advice isn’t for everyone, and how to let go of what doesn’t work for you Connect with Rick Mulready:

    Self-worth, Marketing, and the Myth of More with Tara McMullin

    Self-worth, Marketing, and the Myth of More with Tara McMullin

    If content is king, what is that leaving on the table?
    We are living in a world where we’re told that we need to produce more and more to be witnessed, but the myth of more often comes at the expense of the quality and purpose of our content. What if we communicated for impact and transformation rather than just feeding the algorithm?
    Tara McMullin joins India to discuss the evolution of her content, her business, and how distancing herself from the myth of more has impacted her work and creativity.
    In this discussion:
    How the process of filtering ourselves through content marketing impacts our sense of self Why shifting your mindset about credibility from income to impact supports your integrity How unhooking your self-worth from how you make money can open you up to opportunities and experiences Why we need to build awareness of the stories behind our goals, values, and vision Connect with Tara McMullin:

    Showing Up Authentically in the Speaking Industry with Evolve Benton and Erica Courdae

    Showing Up Authentically in the Speaking Industry with Evolve Benton and Erica Courdae

    So often we have a desire to be visible. But there’s also a distinct lack of transparency in the visibility industry, whether you’re an influencer, a photographer, a model, a speaker, even musicians and actors.
    It’s really challenging to figure out what other people charge. And what you should, could, or can charge to collaborate with a brand or appear as a speaker.
    Evolve Benton joins India and Erica for a discussion on the speaking industry, how to diversify speaking, and using publicity and speaking as means of financial freedom.
    In this discussion:
    Why you need to speak in, as well as out with your goals and affirmations Why professional communities need to allow us to be our whole selves How to set pricing that honors your capacity, needs, and the value you bring Why asking for more is about more than just you

Sekenny ,

Branding and visibility at its best!

I absolutely love India’s focus on creating a brand that aligns with your values. Business purely for profit is the old way of doing things. And it’s time for a new way of doing business, a way that also creates impact.

Shannon Collins ,

A must-listen for this small business owner

One of my new favorite forms of self-care is listening to the backlog of old episodes while working out in the morning. I’ve learned so much about brand values as a business owner and how to make them visible rather than just floating around unseen in my head. So grateful for India and the Pause on the Play community.

The Creative Impostor ,

VISIBILITY... yes, bring it!

I'm learning so much from listening to India and her guests share what it means to be visibile as a business leader (hint: Visibility is a 2-way street.) She has a unique perspective on all things brand and marketing that helps me reflect about my own. Plus I love India's voice and her theme music!
