    If change scares you, this episode is for you!
    Monica Ortega grew up afraid of a lot, but she didn't realize HOW afraid she was until she started traveling. When she realized she wasn't alone in those fears, she thought, "There's a space [in the market] for that."

She created the travel show Monica Goes back in 2014 to inspire others to break out of their comfort zones and go on adventures.

    047: Unshakeable Confidence with American Idol's Justin Guarini

    047: Unshakeable Confidence with American Idol's Justin Guarini

    Justin Guarini became a household name in 2002 as the runner-up in Season 1 of American Idol. From there, he's starred in multiple Broadway shows and, in 2015, began appearing in Diet Dr. Pepper commercials as "Lil' Sweet."
    But the road to success has not always been an easy one.
    Through the ups, down, and complete direction reversals that the public is often not made aware of, Justin ended up in unexpected territory, fascinated with the ins and outs of what allows entertainers, influencers, and entrepreneurs to be confident in moments when they're feeling anything but.
    It's been a journey that led to the creation of his Core Confidence program and his newly released book, Unshakeable Confidence.
    In this incredible conversation, Justin and I discussed confidence -- that "thing" that every creative person lacks at one point or another, no matter how much success he or she attains!
    A few interview highlights:
    [4:30] Confidence is not necessarily something you’re born with. You don’t “have it” or not. The formula that stands the test of time when it comes to consistent confidence.
    [7:28] The non-negotiable component that Justin tags onto the end of the philosophy “Be. Do. Have.” 
    [9:59] Are 1500 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets in the hotels of Bel Air really that great? 
    [10:23] How confident Justin felt just after the Season 1 finale of American Idol and the news he got from Tina Fey that changed everything
    [18:25] The most profound realization Justin had after the mountain on which everything he thought he wanted sat came tumbling down 
    [19:20] The true meaning of Followers and Likes
    “Anyone who’s ever made anything — whether that’s impact or a material thing of significance — has failed massive amounts of times.”
    [36:45] The belief that changes everything when people don’t show up to your events
    [48:10] The 4 key necessary skills when it comes to building a consistent state of confidence

    046: Cory Goodrich, Author of Folksong: A Ballad of Death, Discovery, and DNA

    046: Cory Goodrich, Author of Folksong: A Ballad of Death, Discovery, and DNA

    Cory Goodrich is an actor, songwriter, singer, painter, and (most recently) author. Her memoir, Folksong: A Ballad of Death, Discovery, and DNA launches on January 11, 2021.
    In her first podcast on Authors, Creators, and Visionaries, we talked about the undeniably divine chain of events that led to our meeting, to me editing her manuscript, and ultimately, to Finn-Phyllis Press acquiring her memoir for publication.
    It truly is an example of the way that the universe works in our favor when we are able to take action and then surrender, be patient, and see what unfolds. If you are even a bit skeptical this principle (and I have been!), I invite you to listen to this episode with an open mind and a curiosity about what might be waiting for you to slow down long enough that it can catch up to you.

    045: Interview with Business Strategist Mike Young

    045: Interview with Business Strategist Mike Young

    Did ANYTHING good happen to you in 2020?
    It's the question that seemingly everyone is asking right now, and I had the unique opportunity to chat with business strategist Mike Young about our unexpected (but greatly appreciated) lessons learned this year.
    Among these lessons:

    What you say to yourself matters - how you describe or qualify your “failures” or missteps is crucial. When starting a new offer, you’ll always have an imposter-syndrome feeling because you don’t know how it’s all going to play out. The solution: DO NOT over-promise on your offer. It’s difficult to OVER-communicate with people you are close to.You have to know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there (plus my newest secret weapon in this area)The value of monitoring your energy as you determine what you DO like at any given point in time. Continue to explore your passion in order to most deeply understand it. You never know where the chips are going to fall. If you get the foundation right and take the focus off of yourself, magic begins to happen. The pivotal question to ask yourself each morning: Who can I help today?

    YOUR STORY IS TOO IMPORTANT NOT TO SHARE!
    Despite what you may think, you don't need to wait for the perfect story or the right launch day. You don't need a steady stream of confidence. And you sure as hell don't need validation from the right people. 
    What you need is help from someone who's felt what you're feeling and done what you dream of doing. Someone who's made her fair share of mistakes and is ready to pass those along so that you can avoid them! 
    I've published 5 bestselling books of my own (plus a few dozen for private clients), and I help people just like you write, publish, and launch books with clarity and purpose.
    ✅ even if you’re busy as hell
    ✅ even if you have no idea where to start
    ✅ even if you're not sure what to include and what to leave out
    ✅ even if you're concerned that someone will get upset with you
    ✅ even if you don’t like writing (and/or think you aren’t good at it!)

    043: So You Want to Create an Audiobook

    In episode 43, Drew Linsalata and I talk about audiobooks.
    People often ask, "What about an audiobook? Should I create one? HOW do I create one?" But we've learned that there are a few more important questions to ask first.
    In this episode, we discuss:

    What's more important than actually creating the audiobook?Should you narrate your own book or hire that out?What are indicators that you are not the best narrator for your audiobook? Common mistakes in the area of mic selection and other equipment usedHow audiobooks are far different from podcasts or YouTube contentThe actual profit margin on audiobooks (it's not what you've likely been told)How to use audio content most beneficially (even without creating a full-length audiobook)The newest trend in audiobook creation -- supplemental (bonus) content
