For a womxn on the move -- we're a resource for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to live purposeful lives and need a little support. Your co-hosts, Maria and Alex found each other working their 9-5's and later went to build their own businesses. They’ve experienced major highs and lows, and like many CEOs realized that the business of making a business gets hard AF. So they decided it’s way more fun if you join them on the never-ending journey. This podcast is equal parts real talk and practical advice for anyone who wants more from life than a 9-5. Fueled by a healthy dose of brutal honesty, deep dives into fears and personal stories plus your very own actionable steps toward your dreams.
how to keep your business and (your dreams) alive in the midst of the pandemic - bonus EP
Alex and Maria jump on the call to talk about business life in the midst of this pandemic. Is there still room to manifest your dreams? Or should we just hang tight and wait for a better time? If you've been listening to ACEO, you probably already know the answer. Still, when there is so much uncertainty, it's no doubt challenging to even think about jumping out of any kind of safety net to pursue our bigger dreams. Maria and Alex break down why they think NOW is the perfect time to create a blueprint for a new life, face your fears, and innovate out of this situation. They share a few practical tools and ideas on how to stay energetically full and financially solvent through this time.
the #1 you need to know before you get your first customer (or hire your first staff person)
Figuring out your mission, vision, a purpose is the #1 most important thing you can do to get the customers you want and a team that will help your business be successful. We’re peeling back the curtain today and going through a 3-part process using Alex’s company, NamasteAsFuck.
From day 1 Alex has been crystal clear about who her company serves and why. This helped her attract the right customers, build a huge community on Instagram, and attract a group of badass ambassadors that help her business grow. None of this happened by accident, and we want to show you how you can do it too.
Join us for this very real convo about how building a brand is more than just creating a logo, but actually a process you can go through to make sure you create a company (and life) that matters to you.
how to save money for you and your business at the same time (yes, it's possible)
Welcome to the last episode of the 4-part money series. Alex and Maria are ending this series with practical tips about how to save when it feels like you don’t have any money. They get really nerdy about retirement accounts, compound interest, making your savings automatic, and explain why they think you should legally establish your business.
How do I price my services or products?
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could set our prices from a place of intuitive guidance AND someone out there was willing to happily pay us THAT price. Yes, that is very possible. In this episode, Maria and Alex talk pricing products and services. They explain why it’s so hard know what we’re worth, and even harder to stand behind it — especially when we’re the new kids on the block.
In usual fashion, they talk about intuitive price setting as well as practical steps in calculating how much to charge.
how your money story affects your life and your business
We all have a "money story". Maria and Alex take you back in time with their first money stories, and Alex breaks down the concept of "money as energy". If you find yourself feeling guilt, shame, or lack when it comes to money, you're not alone. Whether or not we know it, our relationship with money affects the energy we create around us and impacts what we attract — in business and in life. One thing we know for sure is that we can't make money and feel good about it, if we don't understand our money story.
For this week’s baby step, pay attention to your money triggers. Simply notice if you find yourself complaining about not having enough, finding yourself feeling guilty about what you bought, or notice how you talk to yourself when you can't buy something you want. Notice how that makes you feel and reflect on any patterns you notice.

I feel like I am friends with them
These girls are super relatable and they sound like girls I would hang out with except the girls I hang out with don’t talk about the awesome stuff they talk about. And they should. So either I need to get new friends or I need to get my friends to listen to this too so we can start to make moves. Love this podcast!
All the way yes!
Alex and Maria are incredibly relatable in the stories they share about their struggles and triumphs in the realm of entrepreneurship and life in general.
