    Reflections & Relationships

    Reflections & Relationships

    Over the past several months, my goal with this podcast has been to shed light on some of the things that we go through – the good and the bad – as women building businesses online, and share the conversations I have with the brilliant women in my circle.

    We’ve talked about…

    Dating, divorce, friendship

    Being the breadwinner and building a business with a newborn

    Depression, codependency and trauma, dealing with failure

    Being a digital nomad versus living a regret-proof life

    … and so many other important topics

    I hope that the conversations and the stories shared here gave you valuable lessons. More importantly, that you felt that you are not alone.

    As I close out the final episode of Coaching & Conversations, I want to invite you to continue the conversation with me on instagram @TaVonaDenise.

    Also, if you’re wondering, how do I know so many people? I thought I’d share my secret with you. Enjoy!

    Reestablishing Self-Trust After Traumatic Investments with Taylor Ver

    Reestablishing Self-Trust After Traumatic Investments with Taylor Ver

    Self-Trust is ESSENTIAL to creating the life you want.

    However, we’re constantly bombarded with other people’s ideas and opinions and tend to seek their approval and guidance - believing they know better - rather than trusting our own instincts.

    Hence, the insecurities, self-doubt, and fear of failure.

    If you find yourself constantly doubting your authority, start looking inward and watch the miracles unfold.

    In this episode, Taylor shares what it means to stand in your brilliance, overcoming insecurities, and amplifying self-trust.

    Shownotes

    01:31 - Standing in your brilliance

    03:35 - The cost of buying your way out of insecurity

    Beating Burnout and Gender Norms in Business with Kristina Knapp

    Beating Burnout and Gender Norms in Business with Kristina Knapp

    For some reason, we have been conditioned to believe that we have to “hustle hard” to be successful and some pretty outdated ways of thinking when it comes to women, raising children and business.  In this episode, Kristina sets the record straight.

    Experiencing burnout as an entrepreneur is far more prevalent than we would think.

    Even if you are really passionate about your business, burnout can happen.

    Burnout is sometimes caused by the ‘hustle hard’ mentality – wherein you’re putting more effort into your work than you are receiving in return.

    Consequently, it affects your creativity, productivity, and team which impacts the growth of your business.

    In order to prevent burnout you need to identify its early signs and know when it’s time to act.

    Shownotes

    01:38 - What it means to have fun in business

    05:07 - Embracing ease and flow

    09:39 - Ways to break the hustle culture

    16:51 - Trauma in coaching

    20:21 - Kristina's definition of success

    24:12 - How to build a successful team

    27:42 - Feminine leadership, beating gender norms

    Removing Co-Dependency from Your Business with Victoria Albina

    Removing Co-Dependency from Your Business with Victoria Albina

    Do you ever wonder what your clients, colleagues, friends, or family think about you?

    If yes, then it’s normal. It’s natural for us human beings to care what other people think about us.

    As we grow up, we develop beliefs about ourselves based on what others tell us.

    The problem is when we care so much about what they think that we abandon our authentic way of being and our desires based on what we believe others might think of us.

    Once you start sacrificing your own happiness and goals in order to make others happy, that’s the moment you need to untangle yourself from codependent thinking.

    In this episode, Victoria delves into codependent thinking and how to remove codependency from your business.

    Shownotes

    02:02 - What is codependent thinking?

    04:55 - Why do women fall into codependency?

    09:03 - How to unravel from codependent thinking
