    Ep. 208: How Strong Is Your Conviction?

    Ep. 208: How Strong Is Your Conviction?

    The other week we were talking about mindsets and how they are shaped. We shared a new aspect of this in our last Love & Launch Challenge for Marriage Coaches & Married Entrepreneurs. It was SO good that we wanted to share a quick sliver of it with you. We know that regardless of where you are on this marriedpreneur journey, having the right mindset and convictions is critical to sustainability and legacy building.

    So, here’s what we’re talking about on episode 208 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast:

    📝 What exactly shapes our convictions in life & business and why it matters to marriedpreneurs.
    📝 How to identify shaky convictions (and how to fix ‘em)
    📝 The deep connection between our convictions, our mindsets, and why this awareness is necessary for legacy-building.

    By the time you finish this episode, you’ll have a greater awareness of not only your conviction in business but how it is impacting your sales. If there are holes in it, you’ll be equipped to work on them.

    ENJOYING THE JOURNEY TOGETHER action items:

    This ETJT segment is to position you guys to easily implement the principles shared in the main segment of this episode. Here are a few of the talking points below, but you’ll have to listen in to the episode to get all of them:


    Ask yourself to clarify your WHY in business. If you can’t articulate it, spend time on that. This is the beginning of realizing and deepening your conviction.
    Ask your spouse for their feedback on your conviction to operate the business. They have a front-row seat of what’s going on and can often shine more light.
    And more on this episode…

    Ep. 207: Money Talk with Belay’s COO/CFO Lisa Zeeveld

    So you probably already know that money is one of the leading causes for strain in marriage and in business, right? Oftentimes, this comes down to knowing the right questions to ask, having the right team members and being laser clear on where you currently stand financially. Although many marriedpreneurs don’t like to talk about business finances, it is often the missing link to scaling and having more impact. 

    We’ve got a great surprise for you today that will make it easy to talk about money and business finances. We got a chance to sit down with BELAY’S COO/CFO, Lisa Zeeveld and she did not hold ANYTHING back guys!

    📝 Learn the metrics marriedpreneurs should use to budget for their personal salary when there is irregular income (this clears up so much confusion around paying yourself!)

    By the time you finish this episode, you’ll have more confidence in  your finances as well as be equipped with the write questions to ask your team to help you realign your legacy building journey together! (If you don’t have your bookkeeper in place, BELAY is a great resource)

    Ep. 205: Feelings Spectrum: Emotional Well Being In Business

    Many people give up because of wrong thinking and expectations. They don’t realize (until they are in it) what this marriedpreneur path requires-so they settle. Settling is easy because it’s comfortable but it doesn’t produce a harvest.


    One of the best ways to overcome this wrong thinking is to talk about expectations and transparency from the jump start. We’ve recently incorporated our Feelings Spectrum at the start of our training sessions so our clients will know what to expect emotionally on this adventure- and to stick with it when resistance comes!


    We don’t want you all left out so we’re sharing the nitty-gritty in this episode!

    The main points we’re covering on episode 205 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast are:

    📝 The 7 Staple Stages of the Feeling Spectrum so you are aware of what to expect
    📝 Learn how to identify where you are on the Feeling Spectrum today so you are both better equipped for the future
    📝 Understand how to position yourselves for future opportunities AND be emotionally prepared to fully apply yourselves.

    By the time you complete this episode, you’ll have practical tools to KEEP GOING and better understand what is REALLY required for the growth you’re looking for...are you ready?
