    High functioning anxiety and the power of a pivot with Alyssa Cotten

    High functioning anxiety and the power of a pivot with Alyssa Cotten

    Join Stacie as she interviews Alyssa Cotten, who pivoted from being a business/finance undergrad to becoming a mental health counselor in what she thought was her “dream job” to then becoming her own boss – where she combined her business degree with her counseling degree to create her own private practice.
    In 2020, the pandemic hit, and she then pivoted yet again. She didn’t have ANY social media for a decade up to this point, but she started her online business in 2020 and went all in on creating an online presence on Instagram and YouTube. 
    We also talk about high functioning anxiety, what it looks like, how it can keep you from creating your most meaningful work and life – and how to begin to heal it.

    How to market yourself without social media with Jenna Hellberg

    How to market yourself without social media with Jenna Hellberg

    Link to Part 1 of this special collab: Social media marketing and the true costs for small business on the Building Balance Podcast

    --------------------------

    This is a special podcast collaboration with my good biz friend Jenna from the Building Balance podcast.

    We decided to do something a bit different with this topic and split it into two separate episodes.

    In Part 1, which you can find right now over on The Building Balance podcast, we answer the question: “Is social media costing you more than just your time?”
    Listen to Part 1 here before you listen to this episode – Part 2!

    In this episode – Part 2 – we talk about how we can start to move away from social media toward other marketing methods. Because if not social media, then what?

    Read the transcript(ish) for this episode here!

    Jenna has a guide, called Instant Relief, which includes a really simple 4-step exercise that’s specifically designed to help you figure out which marketing and sales activities are actually bringing in sales, so that you can stop doing *all the things*, or reduce the time you spend on marketing activities that aren’t bringing in sales –– whether that’s social media or something else. You can find it along with Jenna’s other current resources at jennahellberg.com/resources.

Woods Life Coaching ,

Always helpful & encouraging

I devour Stacie’s material. Her weekly podcast are down to earth, insightful, and encouraging. I honestly listen every week and get something helpful out of each one.

Emma Liz- Health Coach ,

a MUST listen for coaches

I’ve been working with Stacie for about 6 months now, and it’s been a transformative experience. Today I found myself in an imposter syndrome rut, and decided to listen to her podcast with Laura Dunn in growing from zero (can’t remember the full podcast name lol but it was a really good one).
Listening to this podcast today was SO affirming. It reminded me that the thoughts I tell myself really matter, especially the ones that aren’t true, which usually is connected to imposter syndrome. I had such a cool realization too, realizing I have more of an innate entrepreneurial spirit than I’ve recognized in myself. Stacie and Laura talking about the idea of “if something doesn’t work, try it again” being a key part of business really hit me, because in life, when I want something to work, whether it’s at my current full time job, relationships, or trying to fix something myself, I’m someone who does not like to give up or quit. And I’ll usually make it happen too haha. For some reason, it’s been scary for me to apply this part of myself to my business. But I’m beginning to unlearn my limiting beliefs around business, and realizing it’s not as intimidating as I make it :)

Learning from diverse guests ,

Finally! A podcast addressing this perfectly

I am an entrepreneur and this speaks to me
So much. Def will be the top of my listen list each time a new episode comes out. Love it!
