    ‘The False Gods of Your Business’— Glambition® Radio Episode 298 with Ali Brown

    ‘The False Gods of Your Business’— Glambition® Radio Episode 298 with Ali Brown

    Do you remember the Bible story about the golden calf? It’s basically revealing of human nature and our tendency to stray away from what’s true in the name of what’s new, sexier, faster, or ‘here right now’. This is one of my favorite stories that we can also relate to in business. Because we have all created – or have even been told to workshop  – our own golden calves… or ‘false gods’. 



    For the first time ever, in this episode of #GlambitionRadio, I break down 7 false gods I see most every day in the businesses I have worked with. There are many more, but these are my top 7! They range from a few of the most obvious (like topline revenues) all the way to some of the most insidious (obsession of status within certain business communities). 



    I was on FIRE for this one, and it’s an important show to listen to. Because unless you become aware of these and then get clear on what is true for YOU — it’s too easy to not only follow these calves around, but let them tow you by the nose!



    The concept of getting clear on what is true for YOU and your business (and jettisoning what isn’t) is something we’ll be diving into at ICONIC: The Revolution, my event happening  on Wednesday + Thursday, November 2+3, 2022 here in Phoenix, AZ. 



    ICONIC is all about disrupting your past patterns of ‘business think’, getting clear on what’s true for YOU and your business, and setting course for your next incredible chapter of your career…. Your true ICONIC work in the world. And you’ll do all this surrounded by dozens of brilliant women entrepreneurs – the majority of which run $1M+ businesses! It’s a win-win-win. 



    But right now we have less than 20 seats left, so don’t delay – learn more here now and apply to join us. (We do have an application process.) 



    (Pssst…. Would you also SHARE this show with another female leader you know who’s looking for something different? We’d like more women entrepreneurs to know about the intelligent conversations we’re having on this show as well as the ones we’ll be having at ICONIC.)

    ‘How To Be Loving’ with Danielle Laporte — Glambition® Radio Episode 297 with Ali Brown

    ‘How To Be Loving’ with Danielle Laporte — Glambition® Radio Episode 297 with Ali Brown

    WOW… I was thrilled to have Danielle Laporte back on #GlambitionRadio to talk about… LOVE. Not love as in loving another person in particular, but a concept much greater, and the theme of her new book ‘How To Be Loving…when your heart is breaking open and the world is waking up.’



    And, what does this have to do with ourselves as business owners and leaders? More than you may realize, in today’s times. Danielle spent the past few years radically simplifying her life, doing the deep work, and determining that love is not a feeling, but a virtue, and how we learn about love and express it is incredibly personal. 



    The good news? We can stop the chase. Stop fixing ourselves. Release the pressure. Let anything that’s not in alignment with that light fall away. This message is so liberating, incredibly practical, and needed. I really could have talked with her for DAYS about all this – as one concept led to another, and another, and another. 



    Danielle LaPorte is a renowned spiritual leader and mentor, as well as the creator of the Heart Centered Leadership Program with 400+ leaders in 30 countries. She is also the author of The Fire Starter Sessions, The Desire Map, and White Hot Truth.



    On this episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear:



    How Danielle became relatable to me again (I was being honest here)

    Why now we need to navigate life even when we don’t know where we’re going

    The ‘evolution of Danielle’ and how her new book came to be (different from past messages)

    The one thing that makes her shadow side come out (you might relate to this a lot, and it’s a funny story)

    Danielle’s take on being loving, putting your ego aside, and living life on purpose



    I just know you’re going to LOVE this powerful and timely conversation!

    ‘The Power of Copywriting’ with Sara Anna Powers— Glambition® Radio Episode 296 with Ali Brown

    ‘The Power of Copywriting’ with Sara Anna Powers— Glambition® Radio Episode 296 with Ali Brown

    I’ve always been in love with writing, since I was little. Using words in the right way to convey your point to the fullest. Finding just the right word that can replace a string of five others. Expressing emotions that are hard to convey. And more. 



    But I never knew what copywriting actually was until my mid-20s, when I landed a job at a midtown boutique ad agency. It blended my love of both words and psychology. I immediately became enamored with the idea of doing that for a living – could it really be possible? 



    It was. I left that agency about two years later, to go off on my own as a freelance copywriter. My love for the craft has never ceased, and it’s by far been one of the most valuable skills I still have today. 



    I also love talking about it – which is why today I have Sara Anna Powers as a guest on this episode of #GlambitionRadio. She’s a former civil litigator turned conversion copywriter + mentor who trains others how to get into the copywriting game via her Clickworthy Copywriting Certification™. Her own copywriting has resulted in clients closing $4.4 million in a single launch, quadrupling email open rates, and doubling annual revenue. So you know this gal is walking her talk!



    On this episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear:



    Why copywriting is only GROWING in demand,  and the reason so many people hire copywriters (and why you should consider it too)

    How Anna was able to leave her career as an attorney to pursue copywriting full-time, bringing in over $100k in her first year

    Tips on writing copy that sells today – without using masculine, shameful, or guilt-ridden techniques like they used to teach

    How to leverage referrals to make your business explode organically 



    And I’m sure you’ll love Anna’s sweet Mississippi accent as much as I do! ;)

    ‘It’s Time for the Revolution’— Glambition® Radio Episode 295 with Ali Brown

    ‘It’s Time for the Revolution’— Glambition® Radio Episode 295 with Ali Brown

    There are multiple timelines in existence right now. And it’s critical that we consciously select the higher ones… as entrepreneurs, as mothers, as citizens, as humans. 



    Because we are here to help bring the world through to ‘the other side’, in more ways than one. As entrepreneurs, we are likely here to create new ways of doing business. But in the overarching scope of things, we are really here to create a brand new world. 



    And WOMEN entrepreneurs are a huge part of leading this charge. (Have you noticed the answers have never pointed more strongly than right now to the ways WE have always worked best? The old ways are imploding, and it’s a mess, but… absolutely awesome. ;))



    I’m curious if you’ve been feeling this too. Are YOU being called to something different in a way? Possibly to step into your greatest and most powerful work of your lifetime? 



    This year, as I bring back my annual ICONIC event for entrepreneurial women leaders, I felt strongly called to give it the theme of revolution. And I explain why on today’s episode of Glambition Radio. 



    In the midst of all the world’s recent madness... the chaos... the nonsensical happenings... the upending of most all we knew... there are actually opportunities so immense (both business + personal) that are hard to fathom by most ‘normal’ folks.



    But… this all requires first seeing through the mess, focusing on what we CAN control, and then taking charge of where we know things should go. (It’s often the ‘action’ part where we hesitate, don’t we?)



    On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear me cover the 5 KEY areas to help you create your own ICONIC revolution, as well as a few tips on how to see our current chaotic times in a different light. 



    Don’t miss out - listen here now! 



    AND… while this show is a powerful one, there’s no better way to dig in deep on all this than gathering IN PERSON with other purpose-driven women entrepreneurs, behind closed doors, at a very special workshop.



    On Wednesday + Thursday, November 2+3, 2022, I’m inviting back 60-80 established female entrepreneurial leaders to join me in Phoenix, AZ for a powerful two days to create… the new revolution.



    >>> Our ICONIC priority notification list is now OPEN here, and I suggest – even if you’re just curious – you sign up now.



    Once you do, you’ll be first to receive full details and know when registration officially opens within the next 2 weeks. 



    (Also…. would you consider SHARING this show with another female leader you know who’s looking for something different? We’d like more women entrepreneurs to know about the intelligent conversations we’re having on this show as well as at events like ICONIC?)

    ‘9 Lives to Live’ with PAIGE founder Paige Adams-Geller — Glambition® Radio Episode 294 with Ali Brown

    ‘9 Lives to Live’ with PAIGE founder Paige Adams-Geller — Glambition® Radio Episode 294 with Ali Brown

    How many fashion retailers came out of the last two years not only sustaining their business but landing well ahead of where they were? And also right after opening several new retail locations beforehand? You’re about to hear that story, but there’s much more to Paige Adams-Geller and her company PAIGE than meets the eye.



    I first pulled on a pair of PAIGE jeans back in 2006 and felt I’d finally found the brand to fit me best. But since then, they’ve expanded to become a full lifestyle brand. (I ask her about this decision on this #GlambitionRadio  – when do you know that’s the right thing to do versus staying true to the original product? What’s the risk of diluting the power of what you’re known so well for?)





    Paige’s journey began in Los Angeles, where her entrepreneurial spirit took her from working as one of the top fit models in the industry to launching her namesake collection in 2004. But there are many twists and turns to her story, including not only why she decided to launch PAIGE but also become a fierce advocate for The Rape Foundation. (She shares how the traumatic experience led to later inspiration during our interview today, and I’m so honored she opened up for us.) 



    I am SO excited to announce that Paige will be a Special Guest Advisor for The Trust, joining us LIVE at our Official Fall Meeting here in Scottsdale, AZ on October 4+5, 2022! Want to join us? Learn more and apply here!



    After founding the brand, today Paige sits at the helm as Creative Director, where she continues to lead with her commitment to cutting edge design and passion for creating ‘pieces that you will live in’.



    On this episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear:



    The unlikely confidante who encouraged Paige to start her own clothing line (and then she quickly ‘went for it’)

    How PAIGE’s leadership team navigated ‘The Rona’ and created opportunities during an inopportune time

    What’s fashion-forward now in denim and other trends (I asked her to catch me up!) and how to make ‘office casual’ look and feel professional, yet stylish and comfortable

    How the PAIGE brand has evolved over the years from jeans, step by step

    Paige’s advice on building and leading a dedicated team and maintaining a great company culture (this had a few gems I wrote down for sure)



    Get ready to be pleasantly surprised by the depth and meaning Paige brings to the fashion industry as well as her passion for helping women entrepreneurs.

    ‘No Choice But to Own It’ with Suneera Madhani— Glambition® Radio Episode 293 with Ali Brown

    ‘No Choice But to Own It’ with Suneera Madhani— Glambition® Radio Episode 293 with Ali Brown

    She tried to ‘give away’ her brilliant idea dozens of times, but no one in her industry wanted it. So finally, Suneera Madhani did it herself. Today, her company Stax has a $1 BILLION valuation (and it’s the first women-led fintech company to do so). And all those guys who rejected her? They are now her partners. ;)



     



    Suneera grew up in the U.S. with immigrant parents who were entrepreneurs out of necessity, where Suneera learned hard work and customer service firsthand – two traits that have led to her success today. She started in the payments industry immediately out of college, where she quickly saw that transactions and profit was being prioritized over people.



     



    That’s when she had the idea to start a subscription-based credit card processing company. For one monthly fee, businesses could process all the customer transactions they wanted. After repeated rejection by both her bosses and others in the industry, Suneera finally decided in 2014 that if she wanted to see her idea come to fruition, she would have to do it herself. 



     



    Stax is now one of America’s top 10 fastest-growing fintech companies doing integrated payments and payment processing for small and large businesses, processing over $23 billion in payments per year. (And I’m a client myself!)



     



    Under Suneera’s leadership, Stax has catapulted from startup to Orlando’s first fintech unicorn, leading more than 250 employees and $100 million+ in recurring software revenue. Suneera has become a notable minority female entrepreneur, breaking countless statistics and raising over $500 million in venture capital.  



     



    Suneera has been recognized as an honoree on Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list and is the recipient of EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year award. She has been featured in Bloomberg, Fortune, Inc, and more for her accomplishments not only in fintech but as a woman passionate about helping other women succeed through her platform at CEO School, a top business podcast.



     



    On this episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear:



    How Stax evolved from a concept in Suneera’s mind into a company valued at $1 billion in less than 8 years

    The ONE thing she has done from the very beginning that she contributes to her massive success

    Suneera’s advice on owning your superpower (I loved this!) 

    Her passion for closing gender pay gaps and increasing diversity in her industry of fintech

    And much more.



    You’ll love Suneera’s passion and no-nonsense approach to entrepreneurship, workplace culture, and life!

Love! Love! Love Glambition Radio!

I’ve been following Ali Brown for years. I stared listening to Glambition Radio since day 1. I find as a business owner that the podcasts speak to me. If you’re a business owner and you have not listened, I recommend you give it a listen. I have read all of Dana Perino’s books and this was an amazing real talk these ladies had. It’s one of my favorite Glambition Radio podcasts!

I used to love this podcast

When Ali interviews business experts this podcast is amazing. There is so much good stuff. She draws out the best advice from business leaders.
Now that she is pushing crazy people I am not sure I can continue to listen. She really should have stuck to interviewing people about business and avoided people touting fake science. I am so disappointed that she has decided to give voice to conspiracy theories.

Ali, you have a beautiful way of interviewing your guests, where you listen more than you speak, and your thoughtful questions bring out amazing stories of your guests. What a beautiful episode with Bertha Gonzalez. She is so incredibly smart and passionate about her tequila. I will definitely be trying her product.
