    The Reluctant Entrepreneur - Reluctance w/ Michele Rempel

    The Reluctant Entrepreneur - Reluctance w/ Michele Rempel

    How can we remain open to learning while navigating market disruptions?

    Michele Rempel (https://www.linkedin.com/in/michelerempel/) of Westvyne allows Diana and I to come on site to her studio and talk to her about her reluctant entrepreneur journey that stated in education and landed in digital marketing. A few life changes and a customer request really jumpstarted her journey into the career field that she is still in today, but her roots and passion from that educational background is a part of what has made her approach unique to her customers.

    She also explores while her family background is not in starting businesses, but she found that once she started one, she was able to start other businesses, such as a creative art side project. What it was like navigating both the recent pandemic and the economic downturn from 2007 – 2009 and what she’s learned after remaining in business after both events.

    In this episode we referenced:

    - The enneagramis a strength-based personality assessment.

    - Pinterest, TikTok, Instagram Reels are all social media image and video sharing platforms that allow businesses to market direct to consumers.

    - Diana referenced that Drew was better at the definitions, she is referring to Drew Long of Hawthorne Union.

    - Women’s Business Center and SCORE are support programs within the SBA.

    - “We tend to buy from people we know like and trust,” is a common sales phraseology that David Malizia shared with us on a previous episode.

    The Reluctant Entrepreneur - Health

    What does personal health have to do with business?

    Health is wealth. In this episode, we break down some of the overlooked corners of entrepreneurship, which is your health, because of how dependent your business is on your ability to perform. If you’re sick, unless you have some alternate funding source, it’s impacting your bottom line in some way.

    We all know a steady diet of fast food will eventually take its toll on you, s when we talk about getting sick, that’s not the cold, we talk about the whole spectrum of wellbeing that can impact your output. That can include nutrition, spiritual wellbeing, time, or stress management.

    The Reluctant Entrepreneur - Balance

    The Reluctant Entrepreneur - Balance

    Are we getting a bit too judgey about work-life balance?

    Jacen gets fired up about the misconceptions of work-life balance becoming an achievable state and Diana points out some of the judgments that can come along with overanalyzing misuse of the term.

    We break apart the term to look holistically at what this balance means for our entrepreneurs who tend to put a high percentage of their time into work. Use reflection to track satisfaction with your allocations over time. What one person may classify as over-working, maybe someone else’s norm.

    ·  The Life Wheel is a common life coaching exercise.

    · The Todoist has a great breakdown of Time Blocking, a calendar management technique.
