    Personal Update: Second Trimester Recap ✨

    Ready for a personal update? I’m sharing all about my second trimester of pregnancy!

    As of this week, we’re officially in the third trimester and it’s time to recap the ups and downs of the last three months.

    I have a hard time really imagining how much our lives are going to change, how much I'm going to learn, and how much my own identity and role in life is going to evolve, and honestly, I'm just taking it day by day!

    In this episode of The Productive Life, I’m sharing overall feelings about being pregnant after miscarriage, symptoms, how it’s affected business, and how we are prepping for maternity leave!

    How to Delegate Effectively

    How to Delegate Effectively

    How To Delegate Effectively 🤝

    Have you ever delegated something to a team member, thought you explained it perfectly, but you were let down with their work?

    This is a really common thing many business owners experience! This experience can honestly make you lose trust in your team members and make you hesitant to delegate again.

    There are so many reasons this can happen, but most often this happens because we don't know how to delegate. Most of the time this doesn't happen because you have a bad team member!

    The reality is that you can learn and grow and improve going forward. It's not as simple as delegating a task. We need to delegate the outcomes!

    That's why in this week's episode, I am sharing how to delegate effectively in your business!

    Mistakes I’ve Made as CEO and How to Avoid Them

    Mistakes I’ve Made as CEO and How to Avoid Them

    Mistakes I’ve Made as CEO and How to Avoid Them

    The truth is that you started your business because you wanted freedom, flexibility, or to be able to hit a revenue goal.

    Those reasons are amazing but that doesn't mean you are an expert at running a business!

    I've made plenty of mistakes in my business. There has been a lot of trial and error and that is okay!

    The key thing is to learn and grow from every mistake you make in your business because if not, your growth will be stalled, you will struggle to build a team who fully supports you, have difficulty creating a company culture of happy team members, and ultimately keep getting in your own way.

    Your company's growth is 100% dependent on YOUR growth.

    That's why today I'm sharing some of the biggest mistakes I've made as the CEO in my own business... and how you can avoid them in yours!

    What Does Scaling Mean In Business?

    What Does Scaling Mean In Business?

    What Does Scaling Mean In Business?

    Scalability is such a buzzword.

    What does it mean to you? Making more money, hiring a team, raising your prices, passive products, having a big product suite, paid advertising, sales, funnels?

    Many people think scaling an online business revolves around simple marketing strategies and tactics. The truth is that scaling an online business is not necessarily about strategies or tactics.

    If you think scalability is important but you don't actually know what it means, you're going to run into issues! You could end up overcomplicating your business, running a business that you don't enjoy, or feeling frustrated.

    That is why I am sharing what scaling means in business in this week's episode!

Gets right to it!!

Love that Megan gets right into the actionable items business owners can take to move forward w their business. The 90 day business plan alone helped me personally to stop the overwhelm and focus with a simple break down. Very helpful!!

vitalej17 ,

Thank you, Megan!! Awesome podcast!

One of the most eye opening podcasts I've heard in a LONG TIME. Megan not only drops major knowledge on how to grow your business to success, but she integrates the idea that your personal life should not only be balanced with your work life, but that your work life should COMPLEMENT your personal life, so that both are always in harmony, no matter what comes up. Every biz owner out there could benefit from hearing Megan's advice!

Eva Jannotta ,

Megan really knows her stuff

Megan knows what she’s talking about. I love her emphasis on building a business without sacrificing your personal life, a challenge I and many other women business owners face! Megan offers practical and tactical tips, as well as less tangible but equally important ones about confidence, fear, and overthinking. The conversations Megan’s hosting about productivity and time management are so important!
