    How to use life’s challenges as motivation for success

    How to use life’s challenges as motivation for success

    Today's guest requires no introduction if you tuned in to our previous podcast episode together, this is part two! As a business owner we are often pushed into being really uncomfortable. It's those uncomfortable situations where growth can happen. 
    Johanna White is an award winning graphic designer and visual branding strategist who designs premium brand identities that create impactful first impressions. As the founder of Design by Jo studio, she believes that if someone is the best at what they do, they deserve to look like it. For the past decade, she's worked with individuals, startups and fortune 200 brands worldwide, to help them cut through the noise, attract more of their ideal clients and be as delightfully expensive as they can deserve to be. 
    So it's funny, like, let's define expensive, right? Because everyone may have a different approach to what that actually means. She knows there's no limit to success, and she's proved it several times when she took life by the horns and started three companies within a year while battling a brain tumor! Wow, no words. At a time when everyone else in her life was suggesting that she quit working and go on her social security to cover her medical bills, she chose to do the complete opposite and defy the odds. 
    As a result, Johanna is a dreamer extraordinaire for top performers, goal oriented individuals and brands specializing in premium brand identities from start to finish. She assists her clients in a large range of needs, from brand messaging to visual brand identities to premium custom websites that convert visitors into customers. She believes that excellence applied across all customer touchpoints results in brand experiences that matter.

    Main Topics:
    - Consistent brand touchpoints for max ROI
    - Your brand is more than a logo
    - What you believe matters, what you do about what you believe matters more
    Key Takeaways:
    - If you don’t say it about yourself, and show it about yourself, you can’t expect your customers to know it about yourself!
    - If you want to attract the best, you need to look the best
    - If you are stuck undercharging because your leads are not qualified then you have a branding problem

    THE #1 tool to navigate change

    THE #1 tool to navigate change

    Well That’s a Wrap!  And this is not just “a” tool you can use to impact your future. It’s THE tool to use to gain clarity on navigating change and what’s next for you.
    As we wrap up this lifeline series of Business Unveiled, we want to thank you for joining us (in the Bahamas!) on this journey as we share our experiences, why we think the way we think and how they have shaped us into who we are today!  Seriously, I can’t believe we are at the “end” of this series, but really… it’s just the beginning :) 
    In this episode I’m talkin’ all about ages 30-40+ (my very favorite years of LEARNING), and let me tell you a little somethin’... in my 30s I thought, oh age is just a number.  In my 40s I am learning that age is not just a NUMBER!  It’s a mindset.
    WHY LISTEN?
    *Time-Your most valuable asset:
    How can charting your lifeline help you gain clarity on how to better focus on where to spend your time? 
    *Mistakes-We all make them:
    How are you reacting and taking accountability; do you take ownership and learn from it?
    *Clarity-Each decade shifts priorities
    Where have you been, where are you going, why, and most importantly what is your
    plan to get there?
    TAKEAWAYS:

    Sharing my top AH-HAAA moments from doing a lifeline:

    *You may notice patterns, identify gaps, and develop more self awareness
    *Your “tough” will look different to others. Don’t compare and only ask for direction from those who have gone through what you are going through. 
    *Practice gratitude everynight before going to bed.  You can do this alone or with others.  Say out loud the ONE high you had for the day and the ONE low.  Whatever your low is, ask yourself why.  Could you have planned better or better paid attention. (Sometimes I share them on my Insta Story!)
    *You will value your time more by looking at how far you have come and all that you have accomplished.  So if you want to raise prices, or make a change, this tool will guide you. 
    *When life gets hard, instead of saying “Why is this happening TO me” think “Why is this happening FOR me”. It’s the life challenging moments that create space for you to grow. 
    *You grow as you go; which requires change and shifts.  Your experience can guide you to be prepared for whatever comes your way.  And if you aren’t, then that’s what mentors, coaches and consultants are for.  That did not exist the first decade I had my first business. Budget for this annually.
    New beginnings can start every day… don’t wait til the next January 1st.  You will blink your eyes and half of your life could be over. This is your reminder
    So here we go onto the next chapter. Up next, Business Unveiled is going back out on the road.  Where should we go next? If you are interested in doing a collab, reply to this email and tell us your idea! 
    Your time is precious.  So make it count!
    A special thank you to Rosewood Baha Mar in Nassau Bahamas for the relaxing Bahamian experience. It was a total escape from doing podcast in the loft of my home alone, to the most beautiful powder-white sand, most beautiful beach.  From our suite, to culinary experience, the spa, infinity pools, flamingos, turtle program, the community was incredible.  My favorite thing is implementing the write key (that makes it SO easy to spend money) but having it be water proof was so nice. I loved the stainless steel water bottle in our rooms at check in.  And the power behind changing just ONE thing.  By installing water dispensers around the property, helping with sustainability.  It truly is a sense of place.
    XO-Angela & Amanda

Motivation & Education

Angela is amazing and so inspiring. I love that she is sharing useful information but can do it in such a relaxed manner. It makes it an easy and worth while listen.

Real talk about real stuff

I've spent a vast majority of my adult life and career in male dominated organizations and industries. Angela is proof positive that if you take the time and listen to people (and opinions) that you wouldn't normally expose yourself to, you can really open up new perspectives and opportunities.
The thing about Angela is her approachability... it's like just BSing with a trusted friend that happens to know more than you do. Her ability to put complex concepts into plain, relatable language is one of her superpowers. I look forward to mining more nuggets of gold and using that gold to better my own position in life. Now, stop reading this and listen to another episode... you'll learn much more that way 😉
