    This episode shows you how you actually create your own stress, and what you can do about it.



    I share one simple question to ask yourself that will change your entire experience of stress, and help move you into a calm, problem-solving energy (instead of spiraling into overwhelm, worry and burn out.)



    Plus, I share how to stay out of negative self-talk, shame and self-judgment that can often come along with stress when we don’t reach our goals or timelines.



    Stress is not a problem, you guys.

    Unless you make it one.



    Unless you don’t know how to use it to your advantage.

    Stress is ACTUALLY a way to uncover your next solution.

    It will show you exactly what you need to do to grow.

    Find out exactly how in today’s episode.



    In This Episode, You’ll Learn:

    > How we create our own stress and what this specifically looks like in real-life

    > How we can feel more in-control by taking 100% responsibility

    > How our stress can actually help us find solutions

    > A simple awareness exercise to do when you are triggered by stress

    When You Are Not Motivated by Money

    When You Are Not Motivated by Money

    Many purpose-driven entrepreneurs are not motivated by money. Because they want to be purpose-driven. And because money does not always equal social impact in their minds. Today, I’ll share why not having a money goal is a red flag for deeper issues and why it’s important that you set a very specific revenue goal for your purpose-driven business each year in order to expand your social impact fully.



    Money is truly the gateway for impact. Let’s get you more of it in today’s episode.



    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    > The deeper issues that you probably face if you are not motivated by money goals

    > Why money goals are important for all entrepreneurs, even purpose-driven ones

    > What a money goal does for your internal motivation so you can create a bigger impact

    Using Spirituality Against Yourself

    Using Spirituality Against Yourself

    Belief in God (or the ‘universe’, if you prefer that term), is a wonderful thing that gives us inspiration, motivation and direction in our purpose-driven businesses. But sometimes we can use our spirituality against ourselves without even knowing it.



    Today, I break down the sneaky ways that we can actually hold ourselves back and blame it on God. I also share what normally triggers it, why it happens and what we can do about it.



    This is the first time I'm teaching on spirituality within purpose-driven entrepreneurship for the first time! So if you are a faith-based person, you’ll find this episode extremely helpful as you navigate making business decisions.



    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    > The sneaky ways you can use your beliefs against yourself as an entrepreneur

    > How to recognize if you are doing this

    > How to solve for this, so you don't hold yourself back in your business and then blame it on God
