    How To Ask Better Questions: A Book Review Episode

    How To Ask Better Questions: A Book Review Episode

    There's more to asking good questions than just the 4 W's because depending on how we ask, the words we choose to include and exclude from our questions and our intention overall, we end up with either a very empowered team, co-worker (or even ourself), or we create space and discomfort and even distrust between ourselves and everyone around us.

    How to Turn Your Idea Into a Business With Shana Recker

    How to Turn Your Idea Into a Business With Shana Recker

    Shana Recker is an entrepreneur, a coach and a passionate advisor to women who have an idea for a business, but don't know the right steps to get them moving down the startup path. Shana's business started with an idea while on a vacation in a Chicago hotel room, but ended up on a shelf at home once the vacation ended.

    Permission To Pivot With Lisa Pezik

    Permission To Pivot With Lisa Pezik

    I'm welcoming Lisa Pezik to the podcast to talk about what happened when she made a 180 degree pivot in her business and completely switch her business model, her target audience and her offering.
    Her story is a fantastic example of how your past is never a predictor of your future path. As Lisa says, who would have ever thought this is what she would be doing, looking back at her early life in Pennsylvania being told what to take in college by her mom, who had her ideal life already planned out for her.

    You've probably heard advice about creating your ideal customer avatar, or buyer persona. But do you really know what that means? Or how to use this "character" you've created to help with your business?

    Or have you heard about interviews you should be conducting with your ideal customers to figure out what problems they're having, what's missing in their toolkit of current solutions, or even what they're satisfied (or unsatisfied) about with your current offering?

    The Art Of Receiving – The Crucial Skill You Might Be Avoiding in Your Business

    The Art Of Receiving – The Crucial Skill You Might Be Avoiding in Your Business

    When we reject a compliment, or an offer of help, we can offend the person offering and make it less likely they'll want to offer it again.

    The interesting thing is that behaviour extends to receiving money as well. When we don't believe our work is worthy, when we say we love our work so much we'd do it for free, when we offer discounts to potential clients because we don't want them to think we're greedy, we effectively shun money from our businesses.
