    EP: 76 - Fear, Failure And The Mystery of The Creative Life

    “There are no guarantees in the arena. We will struggle. We will even fail. There will be darkness. But if we are clear about the values that guide us in our efforts to show up and be seen, we will always be able to find the light. We will know what it means to be brave.” ~ Brene Brown, author of Daring Greatly

    EP: 75 - How To Be A Boss Without Being A Bitch!

    EP: 75 - How To Be A Boss Without Being A Bitch!

    “By making the decision to be a boss over a bitch, that decision is half the battle.”
     
    Welcome to Episode 75:How To Be A Boss Without Being A Bitch!

    As women, we haven’t always had the best role models in the business world. More so now of course, but not always. 
    In the big bad world of business, we’ve either worked for men, been stomped on by them, or we’ve had women bosses who are, well … giant ass bitches. 
    As women, we still don’t have much of a roadmap when it comes to taking charge -- we need to learn to own our role of queen bee, and in such a way that we can mentor more than manage. To become someone who is inspiring, offers value, leads, supports, and motivates … all at the same time. If you think about it, it’s quite the badge of honor.
    Women entrepreneurs often have a harder time than male entrepreneurs because we’re naturally inclined to be more nurturing. This means we tend to put other people’s needs before our own, which then tends to lead to burnout and a lack of time for ourselves, our passions, and our own never-ending to-do lists. Soooo …
     
    Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...
    How to set expectations, be real, listen and be fairHow to keep your emotions in checkHow to not be a slave to your businessHow to stop selling yourself short (re: comparison)Why it’s important to stop apologizing all the timeWhy it’s important to put your superwoman complex asideHow to truly reconcile the stereotype of being a bitchy boss

    EP: 74 - It's Time To Become a Professional Troublemaker

    EP: 74 - It's Time To Become a Professional Troublemaker

    “A professional troublemaker is someone who is committed to being authentically themselves while speaking the truth and doing some scary shit.” – Luvvie Ajayi Jones, The Millennial Grind
     
    Welcome to Episode 74:Becoming a Fear Fighting Professional Troublemaker

     As an entrepreneur, one must be ready to take all kinds of risks. Fearless ones, that go against the flow by thinking differently than other people -- you know, the keep calm out of the box kind! I honestly believe that everyone one desires is on the other side of fear. Think about it … What would your business life be like if fear never held you back from doing #AllTheThings you wanted?
    When we think of our businesses, these ventures we have put our hearts, souls, and money into … We set high expectations. We dream big. And sometimes that means we strive to be perfect! 
    We want to do it all. We want to be it all. We want to know it all. And sometimes that can create a storm of needless strain and bury our goals and dreams under piles of directionless tasks and to-do lists longer than the eye can see. We get ourselves all … Well, tangled! And that’s not badass!
     
     
    Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...
    Entrepreneurial #Hacks to fight your fearsWhy you don’t need permission to follow your dreamsHow a little confidence can go a long wayHow to #Hack the “haters” and bad behaviourHow to note let “rules” define your success

    EP: 73 - How To Manage Clients Who Become g-g-g-Ghosts ...

    “Sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” – Dalai Lama
     


    Welcome to Episode 73:How To Manage Clients Who Become g-g-g-Ghosts


    GHOSTING! Sadly, it’s a real thing in the business world. 


    That’s right folks, just like the culture of “swiping right” on Tinder and all those other dating apps, ghosting isn’t just for the dating world anymore … It has spilled over into the professional aspect of our lives, with negative consequences. And it hurts!


    We’re virtually stuck in a “no face-to-face communication -- no responsibility” aka “out of sight -- out of mind” generation. It’s like an internet virus of the people …! And in our virtual opinion, we feel this should never happen in the business world.


    It’s also not all that hard to search for subtext when you get no response, and your inbox is hearing crickets. And if you’re anything like me, your brain takes you in a million different directions, none of them happy ones … “Why don’t they care about their actionables and business as much as I do, when it’s not even my business?” … You’re not quite sure when they will come back to say, “Hi, I’m back -- and I need these projects done by end of day today … tomorrow …” Or if they’re even coming back at all.


    Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...


    How and why it’s best to just let it goWhy they became the ghosts you once knewWhat you can do when they magically returnHow we ease the pain of being professionally ghostedPatterns of a virtual cancellation society

    EP: 72 - How To Fire People And Reclaim Your Joy!

    “Dealing with team members can be difficult. But NOT dealing with them can be worse.”
     
    Welcome to Episode 72:How To Fire People And Reclaim Your Joy!
     It’s the age of virtual living; you could very easily (and all too often) feel defeated and depressed just watching what everyone else is accomplishing, while you’re feeling stuck in a joyless rut on the rinse n’ repeat cycle. Some days, our self-worth plummets and as well as know too well, it doesn’t take much to go down the rabbit hole in a spiraling combination of self-doubt, self-loathing, and low self-esteem. 
    As it turns out, enough of these days over here has helped us figure out a solution (with just business joy itself, or when it comes to letting someone go from your team); we must safeguard our levels of happiness, motivation, and joy! So, in order to pony up and reclaim your joy, here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...
    How to become aware of emotional triggers (and what they may be)How to be more mindful of your reactions3 simple less stressful ways to fire people (and reclaim your joy!)How to be clear when hiring and firing

    EP: 71 - How Many Hours A Day Do You Waste?

    EP: 71 - How Many Hours A Day Do You Waste?

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma -- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” 
    ~ Steve Jobs


    Welcome to Episode 71: How Many Hours A Day Do You Waste?
    Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t. So that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t. What has helped me succeed is creating a story around my business. Something people can relate to. It’s not all about fancy cars, lots of money, and endless trips to the spa. Even though all those things are pretty darn nice! It’s the human-side of things … making your passion come to life! 
    And beyond a good story (which helps make content creation oh so much easier!), is automation, automation, automation. And an endless list of helpful “untangling” tools and resources!
    Ready for some tips and resources to keep your sanity with a virtual pep talk?
    Then let’s get started!
     
    Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...
