    EP60: Priorities: Tackling the Right Tasks for Focused Business Growth

    Ever feel like your business checklist is leading you everywhere except to success?

    Last week, we anchored ourselves in purpose. This week, we focus on priorities as the compass to navigate the daily grind of what to do.

    This episode is all about ditching the typical to-do list and embracing strategic priorities that align with your business's current stage of growth. We're not just chasing tasks – we're chasing milestones. Join me as I break down the five distinct stages every business experiences and guide you on what to focus on to accelerate your growth -- without bogging you down in burnout.

    And it's not about the length of time you've been in business that matters; it's way more nuanced. I share insights on identifying and tackling priorities that matter, ensuring you're not just busy, but productive.

    EP58: Trusting Your Gut: Intuition vs. Logic in Life's Pivotal Choices with Meaghan Pierce

    EP58: Trusting Your Gut: Intuition vs. Logic in Life's Pivotal Choices with Meaghan Pierce

    You've heard it before: Trust your gut.

    But if it were that simple, we'd never question another decision we made, ever again.

    How do you tell the difference between your intuition and fear?
    Where is the line between logic and intuitive knowing?
    What role do they play in decision-making?
    How do you learn to listen to your gut when you've spent your whole life ignoring it for the voice in your head?

    Meaghan Pierce, author and entrepreneur, joins us to talk about all things intuition and how she learned to trust her own when it came to making pretty big leaps in her life. Together, we dissect the role of intuition in life's "fork in the road" moments.

    We touch on the shadow side of relentless self-improvement, where the pursuit of goals can morph into a cycle of never feeling quite "good enough", and we critically examine the line between life coaching and therapy, offering insights that challenge the status quo and encourage a deeper, more nuanced approach to personal growth.

    And when it comes to decision-making, we uncover the crucial role of a supportive community and the power of discernment in choosing whom to confide in. Drawing from our collective experiences, we highlight the significance of having cheerleaders who bolster our intuition and support our dreams, even when faced with skepticism.

    If you've ever wanted to learn more about what it actually looks like to trust your gut, you won't want to miss this honest reflection on trusting the compass of your inner voice and the courage to follow it with unwavering conviction.

    Guest Bio:
    Meaghan Pierce is the author of 8 mafia romance novels and 2 fantasy novels under the pen name Piper Easton. When she isn’t putting the stories in her head on paper you can find her snuggling her cats while watching true crime or listening to show tunes.

    EP56: Unfiltered Reflection: Is it Time to Shift Focus?

    EP56: Unfiltered Reflection: Is it Time to Shift Focus?

    Am I the a*****e?

    This week I share the outcome of so many conversations about how exhausted people are by the online business space -- a pondering that maybe it's time to shift our focus.

    The unethical tactics and shitty behaviours many business owners buy into isn't going to change any time soon (because these behaviours are entrenched in the very space they thrive in).

    So maybe it's time to address the actual problem: YOU.

    Join me for a quick insight into what I think we get to start focusing on in 2024... and it's not bro marketing.

I needed this podcast 5 years ago

Sarah Khan is a much needed no nonsense breath of fresh air in the online business space. I binged every episode recently and found myself fist pumping the air and nodding emphatically in agreement. This is the kind of thought leadership I needed when I entered the online entrepreneurial space 5 years ago. I would have saved a lot of money and heartache.
