    Instagram Website Wake Up to Your Life Podcast Some key takeaways on launching a kickass podcast:
    Get right to the point! Don’t bury the lead on your podcast with a long-winded intro, and don’t ask your guests to “tell you about themselves.” Get right to the subject matter and immediately start sharing yours or your guest’s expertise. Pick one main podcast topic to begin with. Even if you’re multi passionate and want to talk about all the things, zero in on one target audience or one key topic and build your listenership from there. Once you have buy-in from listeners, then you can talk about whatever you want. Keep your vocals strong throughout the episode. Don’t trail off at the end of sentences or end sentences as a question when they’re not a question. Don’t try to alter the sound of your natural voice, just maintain a strong tone and volume so you sound confident! Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms. On this show, host Lauren Widrick, your sales and life coach with a penchant for dick jokes, will guide you through building your revenue-generating sales skills, finding your “I’m the G.O.A.T.” swagger, creating time and money freedom, and having SO MUCH FUN along the way.

    49. How to Make Your Business Feel Like Home

    49. How to Make Your Business Feel Like Home

    Your business should feel like you’re at home. You should feel like you can be completely yourself in it, do whatever you love to do in it, and express your unique style through it. In this episode, I’m sharing how I took steps to make my business feel more like home to me, which included letting go of what a coaching business “should” be and stepping into my zone of genius. The result? I just wrapped my highest ever revenue month in June!

    My LinkedIn post about how I changed my business this year Some key takeaways on making your business feel like home:
    Claim what it is you really want. Don’t worry about how frivolous or profitable it might sound right now, just get really clear on what lights you up and declare that shit out loud. Chances are that’s where your home sweet home is. It’s okay to want to want multiple things. If a certain title doesn’t feel like it encompasses all that you are, it doesn’t need to be your whole identity. When you introduce yourself, tell them all the things you’re good at and don’t pressure yourself to fit into a box. Are you spending time in your zone of genius? You ARE in your zone of genius if you feel energized, on fire, and at your best when you’re working on a particular type of project or executing on a particular service. If you’re not, pinpoint what that is and add more of it to your business!

    48. My Top 29 Secrets for Sculpting a Spectacular, Swoonworthy Life

    48. My Top 29 Secrets for Sculpting a Spectacular, Swoonworthy Life

    Our Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership kicked off this week and it was pure magic! Jessica Lackey led the first day of coaching with a “Finding Your Why” exercise, and I received the most spectacular download from the universe: 29 S-words that are my goals, values, and intentions for living a life that makes me swoon. Don’t we all deserve to feel all romantic and sensual about the lives we’re living? This episode is all about how I plan to achieve that, and how you can, too.
    Want a whole SQUAD of accountability partners for your goals? Join the Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership! As a member of our squad, you’ll get access to all my courses and trainings, weekly business and life coaching calls, and guest expert trainings with our avengers every single week! If you’re pumped to join, click here to learn more and enroll in the membership today!
    Just three of my 29 secrets for a swoonworthy life are:
    Significance: Making a huge impact in some way, shape, or form. This could be a worldwide movement you started or could mean becoming an important fixture in your community. Whatever feels really important and impactful to you. Supported: Getting help where you need it and want it. This might be having enough business revenue to outsource all the tasks you don’t like doing or aren’t good at, or hiring a personal chef, house manager, or personal trainer for yourself. Seasonal: As much as we want to, we can’t go hard 100% of the time. We also can’t be coasting along 100% of the time. Seasonality in life and business is so essential for balancing out the busy, stressful seasons with relaxing, easy ones. Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

    47. What Stand Up Comedy Can Teach Us About Inspiration, Healing, and Chasing Your Dreams with Don Garrett + My Stand Up Routine

    47. What Stand Up Comedy Can Teach Us About Inspiration, Healing, and Chasing Your Dreams with Don Garrett + My Stand Up Routine

    A couple weekends ago, I performed my very first stand up comedy routine in front of a live audience. And guess what? I totally choked and forgot my lines… and bawled in the bathroom afterwards. But also, people actually laughed at my jokes! I brought the energy and did the damn thing. In this episode, I’m chatting with my comedy coach and friend Don Garrett about the business of stand up comedy, why laughter is such a healing force, and what performing stand up can teach us about personal growth and chasing our biggest goals. As a bonus, my stand up routine is sprinkled into the episode for your listening pleasure.
     
    Connect with Don!

    Some key takeaways on stand up comedy and laughter:
    Laughter is such a healing force. When you’re laughing, the only thing you’re thinking about is whatever just made you laugh. For a minute or two we get an escape (or a “vacation” as Don calls it) from reality and the pain that comes with it.  If you’re interested in being a stand up comic, take a class! Learn the ins and outs of the craft in a small group setting so you can test out your own set in front of an audience. You can also go balls to the wall and participate in an open mic, but DO NOT wing it. Be prepared with a set. You’re gonna bomb sometimes. Even if you’ve been doing something for a while, there will be times that it doesn’t go well. Learn from those bombs and constantly look for ways to improve and you’ll be golden. There are no failures, just learning.

    46. Crafting a Global Design Business and Finding Your Business Soulmate with House of Nomad Co-Founders Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst

    46. Crafting a Global Design Business and Finding Your Business Soulmate with House of Nomad Co-Founders Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst

    Ever wondered what can happen for your business in five years? In that time, Kelley and Berkeley met for the first time and became business soulmates, started a travel-inspired design business called House of Nomad, and now have two storefronts in Charlotte and Charleston and a line of original products sold at Anthropologie. No matter what kind of business is in your heart, these women will inspire you with their trials and triumphs of the last five years in this episode.
    You will get all the goodness in the audio-only version, but please check out the video version to see Kelley’s gorgeous living room and the wallpaper they designed!

    Some key takeaways from Kelley & Berkeley:
    Take calculated risks in your business. If you’re risking bankruptcy, obviously don’t put yourself in that situation (that’s what my boy Tom Bilyeu calls a “mortality experiment”). If the worst case scenario is that you won’t get clients and will need to get a “regular” job, that’s not so bad. Go for it. Running a business requires a ton of self-reflection and growth. Allow yourself to learn new things about yourself and grow alongside it. You’ll be a better leader - and person - for it. You can absolutely grow a business beyond your wildest dreams in five years (or even less). House of Nomad did it, even through a pandemic! You can absolutely do it too.

    Some key takeaways on how to manage your time like a boss:
    If you have a day job, set firm agreements with your boss about working hours and how priorities will be shifted if more is added to your plate. Propose a schedule that will allow you to be more productive during the work week and let them know when you will (and won’t!) be responding to emails and messages. Get some support at home. If you need more time to work on your side hustle or any of your goals, hire a babysitter to come in a few nights a week or use a meal delivery service to take care of dinners (and reduce cleanup!) for the week. Stop looking at the tasks required for your goals as a chore. If we dread a task, we’re more likely to push it off and actually get it done. How can you reframe what you need to do as “growth time,” “zen time,” or “connection time?” A positive framing will make all the difference.
