    Powerback 91: Evaluate and Rewrite Your Self-Worth

    Powerback 91: Evaluate and Rewrite Your Self-Worth

    This week’s Powerback™ episode is about evaluating and rewriting your self-worth!
    Self-worth is knowing who you are and saying YES to yourself!Self-worth is knowing what you want to charge and having the gutsy to charge it!Self-worth is knowing what you LOVE to do and doing more of that thing that lights you up!Self-love is knowing when to say no instead of just going with the flow because you don’t want to upset people!Look, self-worth is probably one of the biggest challenges that I know female entrepreneurs struggle with.
    And I’m not saying that you’re never going to have negative thoughts -- it’s impossible to always be f*****g sunshine and rainbows. But there is a difference between having a weak or negative moment, and choosing to stay there!
    So this week, I challenge you to evaluate your self-worth by asking yourself,
    Where are you holding back? Where are you showing up as a percentage of yourself versus the full f*****g throttle?Because that is a key indicator of an area where you have some opportunity to take your Powerback™.

    Powerback 90: Creating a Hell Yes Closet

    Powerback 90: Creating a Hell Yes Closet

    Today, we're going to talk about taking your Powerback™ by creating a Hell Yes Closet. 
    So what does that even mean?
    It means that you most likely have a closet, or drawers, or boxes, full of clothes, shoes and accessories that no longer serve you - maybe because there are memories attached to them or perhaps they were a gift. 
    Whatever the reason, I want you to pull out all the things that no longer serve you, and if they do not feel like a ‘Hell Yes’ then it's time to release them.
    Releasing these items is going to:
    Create a ton of capacity Free you up energetically And remember, If it's not a hell yes. It's a no!

    Powerback 89: Optimize Your Social Bio to Attract the Right Clients

    Powerback 89: Optimize Your Social Bio to Attract the Right Clients

    Social media bios!
    I like to think of them as tiny little billboards of the internet - your opportunity to give a one or two liner and let people know who you are and what you do in this world.
    This week’s Powerback™ lesson is all about optimizing your social media bio. And there seems to be a formula for the most successful bios:
    You have to let people know what you doYou need to talk about who you serveYou have to tell people how you can solve a problem they are currently facingYou need to pull all these pieces together in one cohesive sentenceThe goal here is for your future customers to see themselves in your bio, meaning you do what they need, and they fit the profile for who you do it for!
    And remember, you do not have a lot of space, so making the most impact with the fewest words is really key.

Amazeballs and Empowering

Laura is gutsy and it’s contagious! Love the enthusiasm, spark and authenticity in the podcast. Today was my first listen. And it was the podcast with Lisa McDowell. It was most empowering. And maybe even attainable or possible! Thank you! -Chrissy

A No-nonsense Approach to Life's Daily Challenges

Until 2 weeks ago I had never listened to a podcast, I had zero interest. I have intended to listen to this podcast for some time for a plethora of reasons but simply hadn’t taken the time. Two weeks ago, I had to make a 6-hour drive to North Western Ohio for a business trip and I decided it was time. I got in my car, turned on the podcast, stopped at Starbucks to pick up my coffee, and began what I expected to be an arduous journey. I must tell you, I listened to “The Gutsy Podcast” for the entire trip – all 6 hours – AND, I found myself looking forward to the ride home so I could continue listening! A true first for me, since then I have listened to several more episodes and I can honestly tell you, there is something for everyone. Laura brings a no-nonsense approach to discussing life’s daily challenges, opportunities, and celebrations. She brings solutions to simplifying life, identifying and removing toxic people (difficult for everyone but ‘oh so’ necessary), choosing happiness, and more. She does this through her own “Powerback” sessions and a variety of guests with diverse backgrounds. If you haven’t taken the time, I encourage you to listen to “The Gutsy Podcast” I believe you will love the show and its host as much as I do.
