    Going Slow

    Have you ever felt like your business was moving too slow?

    You feel like you are doing all the right things, but it’s not getting the results you want fast enough.

    Don’t be one of them.

    On today’s episode of the Simple Online Business podcast, I’m talking about why things feel slow and how to love the process… because it changes everything.

    Has business ever felt really heavy, confusing, and unclear for you?

    If the answer is yes, you are NOT alone.

    Getting Over the Selling “Ick Factor”

    Getting Over the Selling “Ick Factor”

    Does selling give you the ick?

    So many business owners struggle with the idea of having to sell - and even if they think they are ok with sales, there’s sometimes still an underlying vibe of “the ick” that makes it hard for them to make offers.

    Let's face it, selling can bring on a lot of negative emotions. Many of us feel gross, icky, or unnatural when we think about having to sell something.

    But… as business owners selling is an essential part of our business. We have to have a good relationship with selling, in order to have a successful business and be able to achieve our goals and make money.

    On today’s episode of the Simple Online Business podcast, I’m talking about the selling ick factor - why it happens, and how to reframe the way you approach selling so that you feel good about it…and the people you’re selling to also feel good. (yes this is possible!)

    YOU’LL LEARN:
    ●     Why you feel “icky” when it comes to selling and how to overcome it
    ●     The impact of negative experiences with sales
    ●     How to shift your mindset to focus on helping and serving potential clients
    ●     The importance of transparency in pricing and avoiding the bait and switch tactics
    ●     The most effective ways to make selling feel comfortable and authentic

    Everyone Else Has it All Figured Out

    “Everyone else has it all figured out.”
    I know this can feel really real sometimes, but I’m here in your inbox today to say this is 100% untrue. False. Myth. This is a very common misconception in entrepreneurship.

    This thought can alter your perception, affecting everything from your self-image to your business goals and the challenges you face.

    On today’s episode of the Simple Online Business podcast I’m talking about why this negative thought is actually a bit more diabolical than you might initially think… and I’m going to do my very best to help you shake it loose and feel better about yourself and your business if you are someone who tends to think everyone else knows something that you don’t.

    YOU’LL LEARN:
    The effects of "perfect business" illusion and how it skews our visionHow to avoid comparing yourself to others and focus on your own unique strengthsHow to embracing the journey of continuous learning and problem-solvingWhy it’s important to embrace your own journey as a business owner Let’s Connect!

    YOU’LL LEARN:
    Why it’s important to reflect on your wins and impact, no matter how big or smallHow to build and maintain confidence and what to avoid when feeling fragileHow music can lift your spirits and the impact of confidence boosting songsWhy it’s important to pull from a foundation of existing confidence instead of focusing on  the skepticismLet’s Connect!
