    Luscious Hustle with Betsy Milne and Laura Milne

    Luscious Hustle with Betsy Milne and Laura Milne

    Betsy Milne and Laura Milne are transformational business and branding coaches on a mission to empower women with the tools and motivation needed to turn a spark of an idea into full- fledged business and sought-after brand. So you’re probably thinking they’re sisters? Nope, total strangers that just happen to have the same last name.
     
    Born from the ashes of burnout, Luscious Hustle was created to redefine what it means to "hustle" as an online entrepreneur. In less than a year, they harnessed their passion to build a six-figure business that supported the lifestyle and time- freedom they craved.
     
    In this wide-ranging conversation on the power of women in business, the three of us discuss how to use the moon cycle in your business, how not to screw up your kids, Betsy and Laura’s soul contract, and much more. This interview will give a positive boost to all women seeking to tap into their soul’s calling.
     
    And I also have an announcement to make - this will be the last interview episode for the Excellent Example podcast. I’ll explain all in the last solo episode, which comes out on Friday (8/23/19), but it’s my greatest honor to close out this amazing journey with my two friends of Luscious Hustle.
     
    Highlights of our conversation:
    2:29 - How did two people with the same last name, no relation, find each other and go into business?
    4:25 - Betsy and Laura have a soul contract. What?
    7:44 - Pivoting while pregnant at 32 weeks
    10:27 - Laura's gateway to entrepreneurship
    12:17 - The shift can only happen when stuff is going down
    19:14 - What did they do right to have a viable business so quickly?
    22:41 - Why a steady paycheck wasn't enough
    24:37 - Betsy's parents aren’t like the other parents
    28:30 - You're not going to f*** your kids up with crystals and tarot cards
    32:21 - Why Luscious Hustle uses the moon cycle in their business
    35:46 - Concrete steps to use the moon in your business

    Personal Growth & Partnership with Kari Keating

    Personal Growth & Partnership with Kari Keating

    Today’s guest is one of my favorite examples of a saying I have: May your work transcend your title. May your character transcend your work. In other words, I love this person to pieces and she’s one of my closest friends because she’s the real deal.
     
    Kari Keating is a business and growth coach, podcast host, speaker, and mom to 3 boys. She had a 17-year career in corporate America where she cultivated skills in the areas of business strategy, sales and storytelling, working for companies such as Nike, Quiksilver, lululemon and other major retailers. After she had her second baby, she became an accidental entrepreneur when she started using health and wellness products that she loved and launched herself into the network marketing industry. 
     
    While managing her growing network marketing business and motherhood, she found herself struggling to find clarity in the chaos and hired her first business coach. It was in that interaction that she realized that all the business acumen she had developed over the years could be used to help other entrepreneurs, just like her coach was helping her, launch, grow, and scale her business. 
     
    Kari has since worked with clients ranging from network marketers, coaches, photographers, recording artists, and many more - but is MOST passionate about working with entrepreneurs who want to create a business and brand that lasts. She loves helping women step into their purpose, ignite their passion and truly expand into the women they are called to be.
     
    Highlights of our conversation:
    3:21 - What would your best friends be saying behind your back? 
    6:01 - Each couple’s journey is incredibly hard
    9:30 - How Kari has used personal growth to deepen her relationship with her partner
    11:25 - Is my partner growing fast enough to keep up with me?
    15:35 - Preparing your life for the inevitable hard times
    16:26 - Getting Kari and her husband ready for Tony Robbins
    20:49 - Harnessing your feminine energy 
    29:31 - Helping clients find balance between their masculine and feminine energies

    Even if your voice shakes with Monique Benabou

    Even if your voice shakes with Monique Benabou

    After Monique Benebou’s debut on Season 2 of The Voice, and many years in the pop music industry, she decided to shift her focus from the mainstream, to her own unique path of conscious music creation and healing arts.
     
    At first unsupported by most, she knew she had to sacrifice the safety and security of the path most taken to truly find fulfillment in her individual purpose and unique gifts. What this meant was a journey from the head to the heart, through uncertainty, discomfort, and surrender, in order to serve a higher cause and fulfill her soul’s calling.
     
    Now, as a pioneer and leader within the conscious music movement, Monique has earned international recognition for her songwriting abilities and performance. 
     
    In addition, to her artistic offerings, she facilitates powerful workshops, coaching courses and one-on-one mentorships, supporting throat chakra and personal truth activations, artist development and masterful storytelling processes. Monique focuses on the power of language, frequency and teaches individualized creation methods, to bring out the unique essence within each artist.
     
    Stay to the end for a very special gift offered by Monique to our audience. May you be as moved by this incredible human being as I am… 
     
    Highlights of our conversation:
    2:23 - Getting to know Monique
    4:45 - What Monique would love to hear people say about her
    6:40 - The lessons Monique learned when singing before 100 million people
    9:34 - How Monique stays true to herself
    12:56 - Inspiring others by sharing her successes and struggles
    14:18 - Monique's musical journey
