    3:17 - One of the misconceptions people have about pole dancing
    5:03 - The muscle that gets developed most in pole dancing and how it applies to business

    I’ve spent a lot of time in corporate and done my tour of duty, if you will, in sales. So I have a special place in my heart for salespeople, because business and sales are connected.

    3:59 - The science behind the drivers of pleasure and how it impacts your salesmanship

    How To Identify If Your Boundaries Are Actually Barriers

    How To Identify If Your Boundaries Are Actually Barriers

    People these days! They can take something and strip it of its original meaning like nobody’s business, such as throwing the word narcissist at everybody and their mama even though it’s an actual diagnosed mental disorder. Something similar I see all the time in the business world is women in leadership saying they have boundaries when what they really have are barriers. In this episode, I talk about when a boundary turns into a barrier and how you can tell the difference between the two.

    3:00 - A barrier I thought was a boundary back in my more immature days
    4:19 - How I took that “boundary” to a whole ‘nother level
    5:51 - A true boundary vs. a barrier that’ll keep you from reaching your business goals
    9:27 - What to do in case you struggle with knowing if you have boundaries or barriers
    10:59 - Another thing I had to learn on this boss journey that may help too

    Behind-the-Scenes Of A Compatibility Call

    Behind-the-Scenes Of A Compatibility Call

    I’m doing something a little different today. Quarterly enrollment inside of my Collective Program approaches soon, but I don’t allow just anyone into the program. I’m very protective of that space, so I have what I call “compatibility calls.”
    I’ve been there after investing and then finding the vibe is off, that it’s weird. That’s why I have these compatibility calls, so we can get to know each other beyond what I can read on your website.
    In this episode, I give you a peek into what it’s like to get on a compatibility call with me and let you in on what happens so you can prepare for the experience.
    1:07 - Why I don’t take just anyone into the program
    2:35 - What you must do (and why) before you can schedule a call with me
    3:28 - The two things I ask of you when you come on the call
    5:15 - The step-by-step process of going through my compatibility call
    10:05 - The response that signals you want to work with me and join the program
    11:55 - If you feel the program isn’t right for you
