    Why I give away so much content for free

    Why I give away so much content for free

    I've been asked this question so often by my audience. Why do I actually give away so much content for free? How will people hire me or pay for services if they can get so much for free?

    I have three reasons for this and I've answered it in today's episode.

    How to Create From a Space of Love

    How to Create From a Space of Love

    When I was a guest on a podcast recently, talking about my 60-day social media sabbatical, the host asked me how I was willing to take such a long break without worrying about loss of followers or a drop in engagement.

    Client Case Study & Showcase: Ranjitha Jeurkar of Connext Coaching (NVC)

    Client Case Study & Showcase: Ranjitha Jeurkar of Connext Coaching (NVC)

    Ranjitha is a Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication. She lives in Bangalore, India, where she shares NVC with individuals and organizations. Ranjitha began her career as a communications professional, and for the last six years worked in the non-profit sector, in the space of mental health awareness. She brings her skills from both of these spaces to the work she does now.

    For the last couple of years, she has been exploring ways in which she can make cooking extremely simple: how do you break down complicated-sounding recipes to clear instructions anyone can follow and apply? Her approach to sharing Nonviolent Communication is similar; it's about how we can begin exploring and living these principles in our daily lives, starting from where we are now.

    She has had this business for close to 5 years now, though it has been only since 2021 January that she decided to step into it full-time. The name of her venture is Connext Coaching and Facilitation.

    🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

    In this 30-minute chat we dive deep into so many things including:

    ✔️ What is NVC and how does it shape her approach to life and business?

    ✔️ Dealing with impostor syndrome

    ✔️ Vulnerability as a Creator  

    ✔️ What she learnt from the Intentional Instagram course  

    ✔️ The Distinction between Selling and Service  

    ✔️ What she learnt, working with me

    Thriving without Social Media - A Chat with Mamatha Ramesh

    Thriving without Social Media - A Chat with Mamatha Ramesh

    "On Facebook, I had some 300 or 400 or so-called friends. But the people who I was actually in touch with on a regular basis, I've been in touch with them over the years from the time when there was no Facebook; just the good old telephone, and I still continue to do that. I think that for people who truly matter, you find ways to keep in touch. You don't need Facebook. You don't need social media."

    - Mamatha Ramesh

    ✔️ The role of parents in the age of social media

    ✔️ How to use social media - if you choose to continue down that path

    How to Grow an Online Business using Ethical Strategies with guest Caroline Leon

    How to Grow an Online Business using Ethical Strategies with guest Caroline Leon

    "It's my belief that when we change the way we do business, we change the world. The approach I follow advocates for a people-first approach to business (i.e. people vs profit) and is rooted in integrity and generosity. It aligns with my spiritual beliefs and a lot of what I teach in my 1:1 and group work and in my content is a more ethical way to do business. Free from the toxic, dysfunctional, and manipulative marketing so prevalent these days online. This comes as a big relief for many people when they first come into contact with me."

    -Caroline Leon

    That, in a nutshell, is what is so wonderful about Caroline and the work she does.

    ✔️ What is Conscious Marketing?


    ✔️ Why Caroline transitioned from being a Life Coach to a Business Mentor

Must Exit ,

Shailaja continues to inspire!

I’ve been joyfulness consuming content created by Shailaja for many years now. Her Instagram posts and videos, her articles and most importantly her value packed weekly newsletter. There’s always so much to learn from this lady.

I’ve also had the pleasure of hosting her on my podcast. She’s such a good speaker!

It was a very natural progression for her to get into podcasting. I am really enjoying this show and look forward to keeping listening to the episodes each week.

Susmitha ☺️
