    The Ultimate List of Goal-Setting Strategies with ALoN David

    The Ultimate List of Goal-Setting Strategies with ALoN David

    If you have an idea that’s worth going after, commit to it. If not, move on. This is the basic goal philosophy of my guest this week, ALoN David. He’s a goal setting expert, entrepreneur, and 90X® Founder & CEO; ALoN has created multiple 6- and 7- figure businesses from nothing. 
    In 2017, after multiple hugely successful businesses, he decided to finally launch 90X®. He built the 90X® Planner System because that was the system he used to build his other businesses, and he was tired of never having everything organized and in one place.
    In this episode, we’re going to dive deeper into ALoN’s story and talk about why setting up the right goal-setting system is necessary for success. We’ll also discuss the type of mindset you need to have to start creating your own version of success.

    The Power of Showing Up Confidently with Your Unique Voice and Message with Kate Dramis

    The Power of Showing Up Confidently with Your Unique Voice and Message with Kate Dramis

    Why does showing up online cause many of us to feel afraid? Why does “showing up” seem so scary? It's vulnerability. It’s the fear of letting people see the real you. It’s that fear that keeps you from growing and transforming more fully. It’s also the fear that makes you feel like you’re getting nothing done. 
    In this episode, I’m going to introduce you to Kate Dramis, a copywriter and messaging coach who is obsessed with helping entrepreneurs find their voice, share their voice, and own their voice in the online space. 
    She has written copy for multi-6 and 7-figure launches, helping some of the top thought leaders in the online space connect, grow, and convert their audience through engaging messaging and copy. She has coached hundreds of entrepreneurs on how to create authentic, engaging copy that grows their income and impact without having to sacrifice what makes them unique.

    How to Get Over Frustration and Find Your Way Back to Success

    How to Get Over Frustration and Find Your Way Back to Success

    When you get frustrated, what tends to happen? 
    Do you tend to run from your feelings?
    Do you run from your tasks and responsibilities? 
    Do you abandon what you were doing?
    These are normal responses to frustration. However, when we continue to stay frustrated over long periods of time, we can become caught in a cycle where we become even more frustrated because we’re not doing what we really want to be doing. 
    So, how do we overcome our sense of frustration so we can be productive again?
    In this episode, you’ll learn about the relationship between how our emotions intersect with our mind and body, expert tips to overcome a spectrum of frustration-related emotions, and how to counter procrastination caused by frustration.

    [5:03] - The relationship between our emotions and the mind and body
    [9:09] - Training your brain to do the opposite and counter your procrastination

    Let's Make a Plan for Your Personal Growth and Resilience with Audrey Grunst

    Let's Make a Plan for Your Personal Growth and Resilience with Audrey Grunst

    “Just be yourself!” is what everyone says, but that’s way easier said than done, right? 
    Getting in touch with who you are (a.k.a. your real self) can be quite the journey! For some it may be simple, but for many it can be very challenging and take many years to “figure it out.”
    We know deep down we want to live as our true selves, but we also worry that we might run into difficulty if we actually do so.
    You might be worried that if you show more of your true self, others won’t like you. Maybe you’re thinking, “If I show my true self, there’s no way I’ll get that job/promotion -- it just doesn’t work that way.” The reasons to keep our true self hidden often far outnumber our reasons for wanting to express ourselves more fully.
    In this episode, you’ll hear from Audrey Grunst, the CEO founder and therapist at Simply Bee, a counseling and wellness center in Illinois. She created an easier way for others to learn how to find themselves through journaling with her new guided journal system, Bee You Planner. The planner is designed to help foster your personal growth, build your resilience, and help you find your true self in the process.
    Timestamps: 
    [4:59] - Helping others through guided journaling
    [9:12] - Developing a blueprint for journaling therapy
    [12:59] - Understanding the power of urge in our actions
    [16:10]- How our urges are contradictory 
    [29:55] - If not now, when?
