    Minisode 10: Are your sales and marketing efforts missing this one thing?

    Minisode 10: Are your sales and marketing efforts missing this one thing?

    Hey there, if you are selling something or have a change that you wanna create an impact with your community and with your audience, this is the Right On Time Minisode for you.
    I learned about this philosophy and this principle back when I was working in organizational change management. This is the idea of what's in it for me?
    When we are trying to create change in large groups or in organizations, one of the things we wanna think about is of course what is relevant and why do we want this change for the greater good, but also how does this change benefit individuals?
    Hence, the name what's in it for me? We put ourselves in the position of the individual and we think through what is in it for that person. Why is this change that we're creating for the broader community good for the individual as well? The same thing applies when we are creating our sales and our marketing conversations.
    We wanna put ourselves in the space of that individual. We wanna think like they're thinking, we wanna step into that person's shoes and we wanna think, what's in it for you? What's in it for me? What's in it for the person that we're speaking to? Because this is what matters.
    Yes, we are tied to creating change for the broader community and for the greater good but we wanna tie it back to what is happening for the individual. Because it doesn't mean that the individual is only thinking about what's in it for me and only cares about themselves, though, when we're making rapid decisions every day our brain goes to space where we're thinking, how's this gonna work for me?
    What's going to change for me?
    Why do I need this?
    Why do I want this?
    We go through these quick assessments and when you can clearly communicate to someone, yes, what's in it for the greater good, but what's in it for you as an individual as well, we can make decisions much faster. And when we're thinking about why clients buy from you, this is a critical thing to think through.
    Let me know if you resonate with this, what's in it for me strategy or what has also sometimes turned as the WIFM, W-I-F-M for a quick abbreviation to throw a little jargon in there. And assess your marketing materials, assess the way you are connecting with your audience.
    Are you sharing enough about what is in it for the individual you are speaking to? Or are you thinking too high-level, too big picture?
    If not, let's bring it down. Let's bring it back to what is good for the person you are speaking to, how you're serving them, how you're helping them, how you're helping them move past problems faster.
    It's you're WIFM.

    Episode 52: 6 Things That Modern CEOs Just Do Differently

    Episode 52: 6 Things That Modern CEOs Just Do Differently

    Do you consider yourself an entrepreneur or a modern CEO?
      
    (No, this isn’t a trick question!)
      
    Both entrepreneurs and modern CEOs are running their own businesses. Both entrepreneurs and modern CEOs are in positions of leadership over their teams. But there are a few important differences.
      
    Modern CEOs are embracing a different way of leading and doing business. Some of them, you may already be doing. Some of them… just might take you by surprise!
      
    Modern CEOs aren’t tied down to a specific location — they have the freedom to live and work from wherever they want.
      
    Modern CEOs define what it means to win in their business.
      
    Modern CEOs carve out time to see the big picture in their business… and zero in on exactly what they need to build on next in order to move their business forward.
      
    Because, importantly, the modern CEO mindset is focused on growth and opportunity. 
      
    This means being able to look at a misstep or mistake and see it as a valuable lesson that you can use to drive growth. It means having a definite vision for what you want to create… but being agile enough to adapt to what’s going on in the market. It means being savvy about digital marketing so that you’re reaching your people where they are… with the messaging they need to hear.  And this means knowing when to pull in the experts, rather than doing All The Things yourself.
     
    And the best part is — no matter what stage you’re at in your business, from start-up to scale-up, you can elevate into the role of modern CEO. 
      
    In my latest podcast episode, you’ll discover:
    What pancake flipping has to do with being a modern CEO — and what it teaches us about opportunity  The trait you need to develop in order to turn that beautiful business vision of yours into reality  Why your numbers are SO MUCH MORE than your bank balance — and how they can help you improve your business

    Episode 51: The Sad Truth About the 24/7 Hustle Movement

    I have some real talk for you right now.
    And it may sound far-fetched and you may feel just a little bit of resistance to hearing it, but here it comes: People making 10x more than you… aren’t working 10x harder.
    I know that goes against the Instagram ‘Hustle’ mindset you’re so used to seeing. It goes against everything your parents said about working as hard as you can. It goes against the societal belief that you have to be actively working and busy all… the… time… in order to be deservi

    Minisode 9: 5 Things to Do right now to go from scarcity mindset to abundance

    Minisode 9: 5 Things to Do right now to go from scarcity mindset to abundance

    Welcome to this Right On Time Minisode.
    For this episode, where we are talking about some practices I am implementing right now around gratitude, and expanding my money mindset. Because, about a month ago, I recognized that I had some scarcity stuff coming up. We're experiencing growth in the business. Things are going well. We're reinvesting in the business, and I identified, still, some scarcity, some lacks, some reactions, when I was like, ooh, are we going to do that? Ah, ah, ah, I'm not sure.
    So I picked up a book... Actually, first up, I implemented an approach, where I am writing down my goals for the year, every single day for 30 days, to see what comes up, to step into that, to remind my subconscious, and to reprogram my thoughts around the goals that I'm working towards in case there's any scarcity around that.
    And there is, I can confirm. But I'm getting better. It's getting a little bit more comfortable, and I'm seeing the way forward a little bit more clearly every day.
    The second thing I am doing every day is I am writing down 10 things I am grateful for and why.
    This comes from a practice recommended in the book, "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne. Actually, my hairstylist recommended it. She had it on her station, at her space, when I was getting my hair cut, and we just had a lovely conversation, and I mentioned something she's like, "Actually, I'm reading about it right now. Check this out."
    So I immediately picked up the book. I'm really enjoying the gratitude practices that Rhonda recommends in the book. So I've been writing down, every day, for the last week, 10 things I am grateful for. And not just what I'm grateful for, but also the why. Why am I grateful for it?
    I am grateful for great weather because it perks up my energy, I feel better all around, and I can be outside, right? One simple example. It's simple, the weather, great weather. Nothing big is happening there, but you can capture everything on these gratitude lists.
    The second thing I am doing every day is I am recognizing, I have this in a place where I can see it and read it frequently, that the gift of health is keeping me alive. And interestingly, I had a little bit of a reaction to this one, like, yes, yes, it's true. The gift of health is keeping me alive, but I have chronic migraines that I'm dealing with. I've got a headache almost every day, not quite every day, and they're going down, they're going down, but it prompts nausea. It prompts all sorts of things for me. So reading this, I'm like, all right, I'm gonna read it because I am indeed grateful for the gift of health that is keeping me alive. And, I will take a little bit more of that. So we're gonna keep it going.
    The other thing that I am doing every night, as a part of the recommendations in this book, to expand our capacity for abundance, and to increase our gratitude. And there, of course, all sorts of benefits for our health, for our life that comes with a gratitude practice, is at the end of each day, I'm holding a rock, and I am saying the thing I am most grateful for from the day. The thing that I'm most grateful for from the day, and just saying, thank you, thank you, thank you for whatever that thing may be.
    And lastly, the thing that I am doing is, I wrote on a $100 bill, I wrote on and $100 bill, on this sticker. I didn't actually write on the $100 bill, that I am thankful for all of the money I have been given in my life. Not just that I'm receiving right now, but all the money I have ever received. I am thankful for that. And in the book, Rhonda prompts you to think through all the things that you are grateful for, or that you've ever received, right? That you are grateful for, like the shoes that I didn't have to buy when I was a kid, the house that I had over my head when I was a kid, the Mercury Grand Marquis, a very big car that my parents gave me to drive

    Episode 50: What’s Better Than Starting Over?

    I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a fresh start.
    There’s something magical about that feeling of a clean slate.
    Whether it’s January 1st, coming back from a vacation, or even just a Monday, I love the feeling of exciting potential that a fresh start gives.
    But can I let you in on a secret? You can have a fresh start any time you choose.
    Just close your eyes and point to a date on the calendar! Fresh start on a Tuesday? On your birthday? On your dog’s birthday? Whatever you choose, you will b

    Episode 49: Stop Chronic Reinvention, Go With Boring Instead

    Episode 49: Stop Chronic Reinvention, Go With Boring Instead

    Are you feeling like you’ve hit a plateau in your journey to build and scale your business?
     
    Are you wondering what secret sauce you need to discover in order to push through?
     
    Then this is the Right on Time episode for you. (Warning: I just might blow your mind!)
     
    Do you feel like you’ve already tried all the things without seeing the results you want? Do you feel like you’re too busy working in your business to work ON your business? 
     
    Believe me, I get it!
     
    The problem actually starts with your best intentions.
     
    We constantly learn about new techniques, approaches, and software that promise to make our businesses leaner, meaner, and more profitable. Yes, it’s EXHILARATING to imagine totally revamping our businesses and making them feel shiny and new. It’s exciting to come up with a dozen new offers that our clients are sure to fall in love with. And who isn’t thrilled by the idea of a total rebrand??
     
    But this constant reinvention is part of the reason why so many Modern CEOs struggle to move forward.
     
    Look — what works for Madonna doesn’t necessarily work for everyone!
     
    And chronic reinvention has a lot of hidden downsides that can slow down your growth.
     
    If you want to make the RIGHT changes to your business, you need to step back and understand the bigger picture — that’s an important part of your role as a Modern CEO. You need that bigger-picture clarity in order to implement the changes that will TRULY take your business where you want it to go, instead of quick fixes that don’t really move the needle.
     
    In my latest podcast episode, you’ll discover:
    The #1 issue that comes up in entrepreneurial communities — and why it’s so common  4 major negative side effects of constantly changing your business and their impact on your momentum and revenue Why “boring” should be your goal when it comes to describing the way your business runs (not kidding!)
