    Ep. 23: What It Takes to Be a Boundary Queen

    Ep. 23: What It Takes to Be a Boundary Queen

    I’ll be the first to say setting and holding healthy boundaries with my clients has been crucial for my well-being as an entrepreneur, and I think this holds true for any small business owner.



    Without boundaries, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and overworked, leading to burnout and—worst of all—resentment. That’s the last feeling I want to have toward my clients, and I’m willing to bet you feel similarly. 



    Here are some practical ways to set and hold healthy boundaries with clients. These are things that have worked in my business AND that have worked for my clients in their businesses too.

    Ep. 22: 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Starting Your Business

    Ep. 22: 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Starting Your Business

    As a full-time business consultant and former commercial loan officer, I’ve seen businesses at every stage, from scrappy start-ups to companies going on 50+ years.



    What I’ve noticed is that it’s much easier to thrive in business if you set yourself up for success from the start. The saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure comes to mind. It’s not that we can’t right the ship if you get off course, but wouldn’t you rather design a business you don’t need to fix a year from now?



    Listen in for 5 mistakes to avoid when starting your business—and what to do instead.

    Ep. 21: The Importance of Finding Your Niche + How to Do It

    Ep. 21: The Importance of Finding Your Niche + How to Do It

    Some people will argue that you don’t need a niche. These are usually the same people who say things like, “You are the niche.” (Which, ironically, still means you have a niche, albeit one that centers on you and your personality instead of a topic.)



    As usual, there’s some nuance here. I don’t advocate for ignoring a niche altogether and just “winging it” because this tends to slow business growth and create confusion. But I also don’t suggest you confine yourself to a really narrow niche that will bore you to tears six months from now. Having to talk about the same concepts and ideas day in and day out isn’t sustainable for most entrepreneurs.



    Here's how to find your niche.

    Ep. 20: Are Blogs Still Relevant?

    Ep. 20: Are Blogs Still Relevant?

    Ask 100 people whether blogs are still relevant, and you’ll get 100 different answers ranging from “no way!” to “absolutely!” 



    But you’re probably here because you’re asking yourself whether you should start a blog to promote your business. And that answer depends entirely on whether the potential benefits of blogging are worth the time and energy it takes to run an effective and consistent blog.



    Blogs are not a quick fix, get-rich-quick scheme, or guarantee. But they’re hugely beneficial for business owners who a) want them and b) know how to leverage them to boost visibility and attract potential clients.



    Gratefully,

    Katelyn

    Ep. 19: The Easiest Way To Access Your Intuition

    No matter what problem you're trying to solve or decision you're trying to make, stream-of-consciousness writing will help you tap into your intuition faster.



    No writing skills necessary!



    If you're a visionary, a dreamer, or an innovator, I invite you to try stream-of-consciousness writing as an alternative to meditation. I encourage you to use this technique to dig into your intuition and make space for it to show you the path forward.
