    #121: 2 Truths + 1 Lie About Your One Year from Now Vision

    #121: 2 Truths + 1 Lie About Your One Year from Now Vision

    Welcome to One Year from Now: The Podcast – the show that supports high-impact entrepreneurs in turning their desires & dreams into clear, compelling vision and then actually bringing it all into reality. 
     
    I’m your host, Hailey Thomas, entrepreneurship coach, parent, tedx speaker, adventure and all around smart ass. :) 
     
    And this show is brought to you by One Year from Now: The Residency, the 12-month life + business incubator for high-impact entrepreneurs. This is the training ground for turning those desires and dreams into reality. We support you you through sound business strategy and trauma-informed coaching to help you increase your business proficiency and mental/emotional maturity so that you’re actually able to build the life that you want. 
     
    For example: 
    H paid off over $200k of personal debt
    while relocating and traveling the region
    with her small family and working 15 fewer
    hours each week.
    This sounds like it was built for your next season? Then head to https://www.instagram.com/oyfn.co/ and click the link in the bio. There you’ll find all Residency enrollment details and be able to subscribe to the podcast, get on the email list and access free trainings. 
    This week, we're playing 2 truths and a lie with the OYFN vision. Why?
    Because like all metacognition tools – this is one you can just as easily use against yourself. You can twist any of these truths or the lie into a weapon to tell yourself you aren’t doing it right, that you’re a failure, that it didn’t work and you need to try something else. 
    None of that is the case. It’s about rightly seeing the exercise for what it is – not a magic lamp, a compass, target and guide that you create for yourself to help give you direction in a career and lifestyle that can be fairly directionless if we don’t create our own structure for it.
    The Truths:
    It might take more than one year to create some aspects of your OYFN vision Your OYFN might shift dramatically after the first 6 months (and it’s not a problem) And the Lie:
    You’ve “not made any progress” if you are in a season of famine if you did this exercise this time last year.
    Tune in to hear all the details! 
    PS: If you are a high-impact entrepreneur, I want to officially invite you to become a OYFN resident. I am actively looking for the strangest, most purposeful entrepreneurs I can find. All business models and industries are welcome.
    I want to work with the folks who know DEEPLY that they are meant to do big things in the world. But have found themselves stuck and want specific high–touch, high-quality support.
    If this is resonating, you can go to instagram.com/oyfn.co and click the link that says “Work with me: OYFN the Residency” and get all the details on enrollment, the investment, how to apply, what kind of results residents are creating, all of it. You can apply by filling out the application and scheduling a 60 minute application time. See yo on the inside.

    #120: September Break + OYFN Announcements!

    #120: September Break + OYFN Announcements!

    Popping in for a quick update on all things OYFN. And because I am always extra, there are gifs to illustrate each item.
    Here we go!!

    God I love this GIF and I am 100% team Ross. Perhaps due to my need for regular breaks? #1: The podcast is going on a break! I'm going to be busy recording close to 10 new episodes for the podcast in the next few weeks. I am focusing on making sure the content is effective and speaks to the challenges you all are actually having (vs trying to focus on sticking to a production schedule which is not one of my strong suits). As such, we're taking a break until early October.
    Future episodes will very likely include:
    Depression, Anxiety, Meds and Business ft. SURPRISE GUEST The Shame Game Simple Overwhelm Tip: How do you know when you’re done? Defining your Team Leadership Style Plug the Energy Leaks Business Model Supremacy? Want to be a part of the live episode recordings? I'm going to be sending invites here, to the list to join me for live podcast episode recordings! You can ask questions and get coaching on these topics as they come fresh off the press! Details forthcoming - stay on the list to get the invites.
    Looking for old episodes to give a re-listen? I'd recommend you start with episodes #79, #49 or #91​


    Live footage from the convo between OYFN and BSO #2: One Year from Now is splitting off from the parent company, BrainSpace Optimized! (at least, branding wise) I will still retain BSO (both because it speaks to the thing all my businesses do - optimize people's brain space but also because I paid $2,500 for a naming company to come up with that for me almost 5 years ago and I'm never giving it up), but it will house my other projects and business ideas. One Year from Now gets to be its own living breathing creature; replete with a new domain name, instagram handle and all.
    While all of the change is happening behinds the scenes, you can click here (the link in my IG bio) to find resources like the OYFN Workbook, the video guide on How to Feel Your Feelings and to check out the most recent podcast episodes. You can also find out the details on the retooled residency experience!

    #118: The Sleepover Invite! / Creation Through Action

    #118: The Sleepover Invite! / Creation Through Action

    I’m excited to announce the details for my upcoming virtual event, One Year from Now: The Sleepover. Held on Friday, August 19th from 8pm to 11pm central time, join me in your pajamas and get comfy as we do some late-night coaching, bonding, and movie watching! In addition to talking about the Sleepover, I spend this episode walking through the idea of creation through action, inviting you to consider that the reason something is taking so long is that you’re thinking instead of actioning. 
    Timecoded Guide:
    In this episode, I cover…
    [00:00] Announcing the Sleepover details & inviting you to take part [03:28] Explaining the OYFN brand change up & my own hesitancy with actioning [06:25] Sitting & overthinking your next step instead of taking action [08:23] Learning if you feel overwhelmed with action, you’re probably overwhelmed [11:23] Seeing hustle as a skill to use instead of a demonized trauma response

    #117: When a W-2 Makes the Most Sense

    #117: When a W-2 Makes the Most Sense

    I got a little bit ranty about the W-2 this week, but not in the way you might think! We have a gross stigma around entrepreneurs having W-2 jobs or taking W-2 opportunities, but fail to recognize the positives of those situations and acknowledge that a W-2 is simply just another revenue stream. Being an entrepreneur is so much more than a job title, and your identity as an entrepreneur shouldn’t mean that you can never work a W-2 again. 
    Timecoded Guide:
    In this episode, I cover…
    [00:00] Moving to a W-2 when it actually makes sense as a career entrepreneur [03:11] W-2 positions as income streams & part of your asset portfolio [05:31] Entrepreneurship as an identity, not as a title based on what you're working on [07:38] Strategically showing up to a W-2 role for the most impact [09:56] Getting over the stigma of "going backwards" (hint: there's no such thing!)

    #116: Growth Grief

    #116: Growth Grief

    This week, we talk about grief, but not the type that happens when someone dies. Growth grief is the cacophony of emotions experienced at the end of one chapter of your business. Whether you’re moving away from a partnership or embracing a new path in your entrepreneurial journey, our bodies and brains will process this change and grieve, no matter how often we claim we “don’t have time for it.” Even if the change is welcomed, space for grieving is necessary!
    Timecoded Guide:
    In this episode, I cover…
    [00:00] Why growth grief catches us off guard [05:05] What happens when we don’t give ourselves the time or space to grieve [08:47] What grief really is and how to identify the many emotions involved [14:43] How to process through the 5 stages of grief as a rhythm of entrepreneurship [23:15] When our grief “deserves” the airtime and how to contend with our thoughts about grief

A wealth of knowledge!

Hailey is such a great resource for anyone wanting to start a biz. Her advice, and her guests, is so tangible and well though out. You can tell how intelligent she is but very real and relatable at the same time. I always take away great tips from this podcast. Thanks Hailey!

Knott.Melanie ,

Calling Creative Entrepreneurs Everywhere

Y'all - I have never heard such insightful, realistic approaches to business and finding space to do the work needed for my business. I always walk away from an episode moved in some way that inspires me to make changes in my businesses. Ugh. I love it.
