    47: The Best Investment For Your Business

    In this new episode Erin and Rachel break down what they believe is the single best investment for your business. They discuss how investing in coaching, education and more are all powerful tools when starting a business, but that they are not the most important thing.

    The girls believe the most important thing you can invest in is yourself. They share why having the right mindset and changing your blueprint are necessary for a successful business. They also agree that there isn’t a secret sauce when it comes to success. And that it’s important to model after others, but to put your own unique stamp on your business.

    Lastly, they share how outsourcing in your business can be the best decision. It can allow you to stay in your zone of genius and will, in turn, make your business even more successful.

    45: Are Opinions Holding You Back?

    45: Are Opinions Holding You Back?

    Opinions. Everyone has them. But are they necessary? Are they something you value?  Do you let others opinions impact your decision?

    In this brand new episode, Erin and Rachel are diving into the world of opinions. They both agree that they do not like opinions. They believe that opinions are typically bad advice or they stop people from going after their goals and dreams.

    The girls think the worst type of opinion is unsolicited kind. If you were not asked your opinion, it is not necessary to give it. But in the same regard, if you ask someone for their opinion then you need to be prepared that you may not like the opinion given.

    Erin and Rachel also came to the conclusion that opinions are usually viewed as being negative and that it is up to us to find the positive in them. Although if it’s already viewed as a positive opinion, it’s usually regarded as a compliment.

    Lastly, the girls talk about the value we place on others opinions and knowing our own worth. We can allow their opinions to stop us from taking that chance or making that dream a reality. But if we get rid of the self-doubt and know who we truly are, then we can look past the opinions and make our own decisions.

    Erin and Rachel also highlight:


    Asking for opinions from those who have done it before you

    People can give negative opinions/advice to make themselves feel better

    Stopping the noise around us

    We shouldn’t care about most people’s opinions

    Those with the most opinions are the ones who aren’t doing anything

    Quotes:


    We’re conditioned to see the negative in things where we need to retrain to see the positive in things.” -Rachel

    “A lot people listen to people, like let their opinions sway them.” -Erin

    “I don’t think anyone who’s ever made a big impact on this world was less and weak.” -Rachel

    “So many people don’t think for themselves.” -Erin

    “Sometimes you gotta think for yourself and go out on your own and take a chance.” -Erin
    "Know yourself and make choices for you." -Rachel

    44: Goal Setting: What really goes into it?

    44: Goal Setting: What really goes into it?

    In this week’s episode, Erin and Rachel are tackling the topic of goals. They discuss why it is important to set realistic goals and not some grandiose goal that is seemingly impossible. The girls also say that sometimes goals are just big dreams that people will never take action on.

    Erin and Rachel have a lot to say about how others can affect our goals. They believe that we allow others to sway what we should set as goals or what we should want in life. But, in reality, we need to do what is our passion, or fulfills us, or is ideal for the life we want to live.

    The girls also dive into how setbacks and failure are necessary when reaching for goals. These are what allow us to look at our goals, reevaluate as needed and get to where we ultimately want to go.

    Here are some highlights:


    The girls’ take on Vision Boards

    What society tells us matters

    Finding your soul’s calling

    Action steps needed to reach goals

    How fear can hold us back

    The need to have an honest conversation with yourself
