100: Flipping the Mic! My Friend, Jena Viviano, Interviews ME About Life, Business, Faith, Mindset, and More!
Well, we did it! 100 episodes! I would say I can’t believe that I have recorded this many episodes, but I absolutely CAN because I love this podcast. And this entire journey has been a blast! For this special episode, I asked my dear friend Jena Viviano to interview ME. Yep, we’re flipping the mic!
Jena is one of my dearest friends. She knows me super well both personally and professionally. She was a past client of mine and has even used THREE of my website templates! She also was the first ever guest on the podcast (episode #42), so it feels especially fitting to have her on for this special episode.
Jena digs deep into some amazing topics, and I share really openly and honestly about big dreams of mine, struggles in my life and my business, and so much more.
We get into questions about…
- What I was like in high school
- What I think the hardest thing about running a business is
- My favorite and least favorite parts of my business
- What I see the next 5 years looking like
- Money mindset struggles
- My big audacious “Before I’m 30” goal!
- How I incorporate my faith into my business
…. And so much more!
I hope you guys enjoy this “flipping of the mic” and getting an insider peek into my life and business! And thank you for being here… whether this is your first episode or if you’ve listened to ALL 99 before this one. (Which I know so many of you HAVE!)

A Bulletproof Strategy for Achieving Your Goals with the Power of Habits
Today I’m sharing ONE simple strategy I’ve been using for months to create new habits in my life… In a little by little sort of way. It’s simple, yet powerful. I believe this episode will be the motivation you need as we move into a new year to really GO AFTER those crazy goals and create change for yourself. I want you to not just get all excited with a goal on December 31st then quit, but actually carry it out throughout the WHOLE YEAR. Habits is the way to do it.
So volume up for a short and sweet episode to motivate and inspire action in your life using the power of habits. And if you’re catching this episode at some random time in the future (aka not when it aired at the end of 2020)... still tune in. This strategy is timeless, and you can get started at absolutely any time!

As we move into the new year, I need your help. I want the content I share and the products I create to be as relevant for you as possible. Mind taking a survey to tell me what you want more of in 2021? http://elizabethmccravy.com/survey

095: All Things contracts and How to Be Really Legit with Kailey Jacomet
You asked — I answered. On today’s podcast, I am asking the expert about all things CONTRACTS. The “legal side” of our business can feel totally scary. (Been there!) My hope is that this episode will ease some of those fears allowing you to get clarity on your biggest questions about using contracts.
I’m chatting with Kailey Jacomet from Contractista! Kailey is a lawyer for small businesses, a wife, and a momma with baby #2 on the way! And in her shop, she sells contract templates, so she was the perfect person to quiz about all things contracts!
Here are some of the questions you’ll hear me ask Kailey:
- When is the right time to start using contracts in your business?
- How does a contract fit into the overall client experience?
- Do we need an attorney-drafted contract? Can we just write your own? How does it work?
- What are some “must-have” clauses to include in your contracts?
- Copying in the online space — how do we legally protect ourselves here?
- How do we “copyright” our websites?
And SO much more!
Tune in now for some MAJOR clarity about your own contracts and the legal side of your business!
