    [Best Of] 96: The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business with Elaine Pofeldt

    [Best Of] 96: The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business with Elaine Pofeldt

    I have always been curious about solopreneurs who choose to stay small,
    like me. Seven years into running my own business, I still deliberately
    choose not to scale in a way that requires hiring any full-time employees
    or by too much added infrastructure, to support two of my biggest business
    values of freedom and agility.

    But that doesn't mean that I exclude higher earnings as a necessary
    byproduct. My business mantras: optimize for revenue and joy, look for ways
    to earn twice as much in half the time (with ease and with even greater
    impact), and let it be easy, let it be fun.

    So I was delighted to stumble upon Elaine Pofeldt, who is similarly
    obsessed with researching non-employer businesses with 7-figure earnings.
    In this week's conversation we dive into what she discovered while writing
    The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business. Related note: I've captured my
    best strategies for nearly quadrupling my income while working half the
    time (with no full-time employees) in my Delegation Ninja course.

    152: Glowing in the Dark with Kristoffer 'KC' Carter

    This week’s episode is another one of my favorite formats, just two new
    (soul) friends shooting the breeze in what we’ve dubbed a “podcast tango”
    :) Given that we both have podcasts, we decided to just hit record and do
    this joint conversation, neither of us officially interviewing the other. I
    hope you enjoy this conversation jam with insta-BFF Kristoffer “KC” Carter
    (shout-out to our mutual mensch mentor Jonathan Fields who introduced us!),
    whose new podcast This Epic Life is one I know you’ll also love. We deepen
    our budding BFF-ship and discuss the BIG topics of life—including death,
    dips, permission to shine, business pivots, his yogic and meditation
    practices, and much more.

    home, and questions submitted from the group on side hustles and staying
    motivated.

    149: Career Homecoming with Laura Simms

    149: Career Homecoming with Laura Simms

    Laura Simms and I have been traveling parallel Pivot paths for a while now
    — nearly a decade of tracking each other’s work, but finally for the first
    time speaking live, 1:1! Of course we hit it off as fast friends, as we
    discuss ageism, passion vs. purpose, and working through insecurities when
    navigating career pivots.

    Laura is an expert in meaningful work who challenges conventional wisdom by
    asking people to ditch their passions and start with purpose. She’s the
    creator of Your Career Homecoming, a celebrated career change program that
    helps people discover the meaningful work that’s right for them. 

    Laura’s colorful career history includes a history degree, an MFA in
    acting, getting fired from a dream project, quitting multiple jobs
    (including one after the first day), teaching at the undergraduate and
    graduate levels, and a successful career as an actor where she worked on
    network television, performed in every state on the Eastern seaboard,
    received multiple callbacks from Cirque du Soleil, and shared a sound booth
    with Sandra Oh. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and son, where she
    loves walking in the woods and trying to find the best whiskey cocktail in
    town.

Solid gold

I’ve learned massively from Jenny and get guests, and she’s so pleasant to listen to

roxlins ,

My favorite podcast!

I love Jenny’s podcast! It is by far my favorite podcast, her voice is like a hug with a smile. Jenny’s ability to give space to her guest to answer questions and ask great questions show she has researched them thoroughly. The reverence for her guest and excitement is palpable in her voice.
The topics are wide ranging, always touching on a Pivot of some sort, but I feel like I’m getting a master class in life lessons too! Not a day goes by when I don’t listen to Jenny.

Auroratopanga ,

Change can feel like failure ... but pivoting feels fresh & exciting

What an uplifting, inspiring & valuable podcast! If you’re not dealing with major change maybe you’re missing out on a potential quantum leap forward. Great podcast for everyone asking what their next chapter may be.
