    Episode 42: Network Up, But Strategically

    Episode 42: Network Up, But Strategically

    They always say "Network Up". But everybody isn't always ready or in position to do that.Some folks are about to be mad at me, but this won't be the first or last time. This is a timely conversation. We ALL have to start somewhere. In my early days, I had to jump out and learn how to network the old fashioned way. Going to events, mixers and meetings. I didn't have social media (this was 1994). So I had no choice but to learn how to network up at the time. Getting into rooms, faking it until I made it...the absolute WRONG way and a way to set yourself up for failure quickly.If I had to start fresh and new from today, I'd do it differently. Don't get me wrong. I made powerful connections, learned a lot, did some business. But it was like a bootcamp experience for me. I didn't know what I didn't know. Had social media and the real internet (as it exists today) been around then, I would have taken a different approach in the beginning. I don't know if the internet and social media actually hurt or help because there's a false sense of security in networking on the internet. It almost makes you lazy. You see a profile, click, send friend request. And most times people leave it right there. But how do they build RELATIONSHIPS offline? Does it even matter? Of course it does.There are levels to this thing. And how fast you progress up those levels is individual. Some will get there faster than others. It depends on your end goals.

    EPISODE 41: How to Hire for Commission-Only Roles & Make it Work

    EPISODE 41: How to Hire for Commission-Only Roles & Make it Work

    I've always felt if real estate investors can get creative financing, business owners can offer creative compensation packages. There was a time when companies would predominantly offer commission based roles to their sales teams. A lot of people loved this because it was mostly uncapped earning potential. If there were high ticket items being sold, a great Sales Specialist could make a killing in earnings. I know, because part of hiring salespeople for clients includes a look at past W2s. But in a world of instant gratification and microwave living, how do you get people to accept a commission based role? Today I'll talk about how to make commission based roles work for your company, your budget and your employee.

    Episode 40: Estate Planning for Women of Color

    Episode 40: Estate Planning for Women of Color

    In many Black & Brown communities, estate planning was not something we talked about as we were growing up. I mean, in MY family, estate planning was never a topic of conversation at the dinner table. None of my friends families were talking about it either. But my generation Gen Xers are talking about it. I started talking to my son about it when he was 14. Some people may say that a teenager isn’t interested in such talk. I say you’re wrong.  I don’t know about you, but the only time people in my family spoke about anything relating to an estate was who has insurance to cover the funeral. That’s sad. Well as an entrepreneur, a Mogul if you will, I want to make sure my assets are protected, but also that my son is 1) knowledgeable about my assets and 2) set to inherit them without a bunch of foolishness when I die. And don’t think estate planning needs to be a morbid conversation that’s left until you absolutely have to talk about it. Today my guest and I will be talking about how to have the tough conversations and set your family up for an easy transition. But first, ask yourself 2 questions:-       What happens if I die tomorrow, and my family is caught off guard?-       And, what does my estate plan look like?

    Episode 39: Elevate Your Image & Message So You Can Attract The RIGHT Candidates

    Episode 39: Elevate Your Image & Message So You Can Attract The RIGHT Candidates

    When you're just starting out, growing and hiring people for your team can be a daunting task. But it's not impossible. As you grow and scale you need to be able to make smart decisions and make sound hiring moves in order to bring on the best people for your teams. A lot of small businesses struggle when it comes to hiring people for their team. There's a lot of sentiment that says, "hey, I can put an ad on Facebook or I can go to an indeed post or I can just put anything on social media saying, Hey, I'm hiring", and give some stipulations as far as applying for the position. But it's not that simple. A lot of people try to minimize the role of effective recruiting. Yes, we all need to hire the best talent. Yes, we want people that are going to be able to do the things that we need them to do at great prices. But as you grow, you have to be very mindful of how and who you hire. You have to look at your audience, your platform and your process, because it all matters. Today, I want to talk about the smart hiring decisions that you need to make in order to build out your team. But first ask yourself two questions. Am I making this job as appealing as I needed to be in order to hire the right people? And what does it take to be competitive in this market and be able to hire great talent?

    Episode 38- Why You Need a Mogul Circle As You Grow & Scale

    Episode 38- Why You Need a Mogul Circle As You Grow & Scale

    Not everyone is at the same level in business. Some people are content with 6 figures, and that's OK for them. If you are them, this episode isn't for you. But if you're at 6 figures pushing for 7, or if you're at just about 7 figures and are stalled, this episode is for you.Throughout my years in business, I went through cycles. In each cycle I learned valuable business lessons that carried me through to the next level. Not always comfortable lessons, but lessons nonetheless. I learned the universal lesson of what gets you here won't get you there, and it certainly won't KEEP you there.There are some basic things every business needs to do as they're growing that are pretty much similar at each level. But what I learned was that while some things may be similar (staffing/hiring for example) they require different things to be effective.I've never really gotten vulnerable about what I do, did, or didn't do. My podcasts are usually to inspire, motivate, educate and uplift (with the occasional dragging LOL). But while I talk about The Mogul Circle, I also give insight into my frustrations and growing pains. Hopefully you'll relate or at least gain some perspective. Enjoy.And to apply for the Mogul Circle membership, please visit circle.mogulchix.com.

    Episode 37- Smart Women CEOs Invest w/Keisha Bailey

    Episode 37- Smart Women CEOs Invest w/Keisha Bailey

    Make That Money! That's a long time mantra for any entrepreneur. But at what point do we go from thinking about sales and profits, to what we do with all of that profit? Sure we can invest it back into the business, and you know that investing in your own business is key. But we rarely think about real portfolio investment strategies. With so many resources on the market it can be dizzying to find what we need that meets us where we're at. But it doesn't have to be daunting. Today Keisha Bailey will be chatting with me about how women entrepreneurs can prepare themselves for building an investment portfolio, clearing out the mind clutter that comes with investing, and the steps you should take to get into investing.
