    77: How to Pivot and Market Your Business Now with Waypoint Creative

    77: How to Pivot and Market Your Business Now with Waypoint Creative

     

    Last week in Episode 76 I had an open ended conversation on my thoughts about work and work/life balance now with Coronavirus going on. It wasn’t a typical episode where I leave you with takeaways or action steps, but rather just a raw conversation to hopefully spark some thoughts and inspiration for you during this time, and share with you my own thoughts on work life now. 

    This week I want to follow up to those ideas and give you more actionable steps to take in your business right now so that you can still carry out your dream, even during this new reality we're facing with Coronavirus. And to help us with that, I asked my good friend Jason Ake of Waypoint Creative, a Strategy First Digital Marketing Agency, to come on the show today to help teach us how we can:

    Pivot our business strategies right now
    Communicate with our communities
    And share some Marketing ideas to drive revenue to our business

    Now this episode ended up being SO great and packed FULL of information that I am releasing it in a 2 part series with part 1 this week and part 2 next week. I really want you to take in what Jason says and not feel overwhelmed, which is why I broke it up into two shorter shows. I think you’re going to find a lot of value in what Jason shares with us today. Jason is an expert when it comes to business marketing, branding and web development. I have worked with him on my websites for years and am so excited to introduce you to him.

    I know a lot is on hold, but your dreams don’t have to be. It’s time we focus on the positive and think about what CAN work for us and get creative! Let’s dive on in to meet Jason and feel inspired on how we can move forward with our businesses now...

    76: Do You Want To Work in a New Way? Lessons I'm Learning From Coronavirus

    76: Do You Want To Work in a New Way? Lessons I'm Learning From Coronavirus

     

    Long before the Coronavirus happened, I was feeling a lot of pressure to "keep up" with what everyone was doing on social media. It seemed like every Influencer or Entrepreneur I followed was coming out with a new book, a new digital course, a new collection, a new journal, a new podcast/blog post, or new "something" every. single. day. These people felt like super humans that can get it all done and make time for dinner with their families too. Like how do they do it all?!

     

    Now I get that on social media we only see one side of things, but I couldn't help and feel like everyone was working a million miles a minute and constantly promoting some form of product at ALL times. For a long time now, I just felt like as a society we were way to wrapped up in more, more, MORE. And as a solopreneur myself, I felt like I couldn't keep up and struggled with feeling inadequate.

     

    Then Coronavirus happened. And it happened FAST. And suddenly we have all been forced to SLOW DOWN.

     

    Now I hate what is happening with this virus. I hate how many people are sick or worst, have passed away. I hate how many people are struggling financially. It's devastating. But the silver lining in all of this is that we have all been forced to take a breath, slow down, and realign with what matters most. It's like this time is a "reset" for the world. And now we can ask ourselves,

     
    Is there a better way we can work and exist as humans from here on out? 
     

    The hustle and grind isn't in our nature, that is why we eventually burn out. I have done it many times. Today in the podcast I have a raw and open conversation with you about my thoughts on work, how I want to work going forward and discuss why we even overwork to begin with. I also discuss how we can ditch the hustle and work from an aligned place with more peace and less anxiety.

     

    I don't have all the answers. I wish I did. But I want to discuss with you today how we can maybe work in a new and better way going forward. Today's show is more of an open ended conversation but my hope is that it will spark some inspiration for you and your work/life balance. Tune in below and reach out to me on instagram @whattheeffpodcast and let me know your thoughts. I would really love to know your opinion after hearing my thoughts on work in today's show.

     
    Stay safe and healthy,
    Taylor

    75: 8 to Great, The Morning Routine You've Been Looking For

    75: 8 to Great, The Morning Routine You've Been Looking For

     

    If you listen to my podcast regularly then you know how important my morning routine is to me. I'm a HUGE believer on the power of a positive mindset. So every morning I do what I call "prime my mind" to set me up to be more positive, happier and feeling like I can tackle any goal (cause I can, and so can you!).

     

    Priming my mind is the time I take to feel EMPOWERED! This time is sacred to me and I rarely miss it, because truly, taking the time to nurture my mind, and connect with myself and my goals has changed my life for the better. I am more optimistic and lighter from it, but more than that, I experience life with more ease and grace. Things unfold and manifest for me naturally, simply because I believe they will. Never underestimate the power of your thoughts! They really do shape your reality. Which is exactly why I check in with my thoughts every morning and make sure they match what I want my life to be. And if they don't, I change them. We truly are the creators of our reality.

     

    If you're interested in hearing me speak more to "Priming" then go back and listen to Episode 31 and Episode 32 of this podcast where I explain it more in detail. Now the timing of this episode coming out seems perfect. It wasn't originally planned to release today but I am so glad it is because with everything going on in the world, we need positivity now more than ever.

     

    A lot of listeners of my show want to get started with creating their own morning Priming routine, but feel stuck cause they don't know where to begin. A few weeks ago I made a worksheet called "8 to Great" to help you with just that! This worksheet, 8 to Great, will help you get started with the morning routine you've been looking for! No more wondering what to do when it comes to Priming, this worksheet will hold your hand as you begin the habit of doing it each morning.

     

    In today's episode I break down each of the 8 steps. It's called 8 to Great because there are 8 writing prompts that will lead you to a great day, everyday. We need this now more than ever. It's so easy to cave into the negativity and fear others are offering with the spread of this virus. We can fight this virus by thinking more positively, by working on our mindset and thinking thoughts of health and healing for all. We can use this time to think of creative possibilities that can come from us all having to slow down at home.

     

    My hope even before this virus outbreak was that 8 to Great would comfort and strengthen you to believe in your power that is already within you. And now more than ever, my hope is that 8 to Great will comfort you each and every morning through this trying time as a society. We need you. We need your positivity. We need your healing thoughts, we need your light. Use this to help you every morning do just that. I appreciate you and thank you for making the effort to be a light in this world, truly I mean that. Let's visualize healing, let's think positive thoughts, let's pray for everyone. WE CAN DO THIS!

     

    You do not have to slow down on your dreams just cause you are at home. It's the opposite in fact because we've all been given the gift of time! Let's use it and get creative! What good can come from this time of you being at home? What project can you finally start? I hope 8 to Great will help you along your journey. Tune in be

    74: How I’m Working on Feeling Worthy (Plus a Life Update)

    74: How I’m Working on Feeling Worthy (Plus a Life Update)

     

    In today’s show I wrap up last month’s theme of self worth by talking about how I’m working on showing myself I’m worthy of good things - both small and big. Recently I started a new job/career path in Interior Design and it has helped me reconnect to my self worth by simply getting ready every morning. Sounds silly I know, but the simple act of taking the time to put myself together every morning has caused this big, positive, ripple effect in my life to show up for myself in other ways too. It's really amazing how some simple things, such as taking the time to get ready in the morning, make you feel so good and remind you that you're worthy of time and energy. 

     

    My new self-worth practices go beyond just getting ready, and I share them with you all in today's show. They are simple, but powerful and important. Taking this new job has helped open me up to taking better care of myself again and in turn it is helping me feel less stressed, more centered and happier than ever. My hope is that something I've been learning or reconnecting with will help you to feel worthy of all good things! Cause we are worthy of the BEST!!

     

    I also share the two books I'm currently reading and HIGHLY recommend! They are both re-energizing me right now and reminding me of my own self worth. Today we’re going to chat, friend to friend, about how we can show ourselves more love, respect and feel more worthy of good things. This episode is here to help you know and show yourself you’re worthy! 

     

    Take the time to get ready, buy yourself the flowers, go for that walk, drink the water, journal and take yourself on a date once a week. Show yourself you're worthy first and the rest will unfold. I’m learning it’s not all about building my business, I have to love myself and actually enjoy my life! I can’t tell you how much happier I have been these past few weeks since starting my new job and showing up for myself more. I hope something here helps you today reconnect to your worthiness. 

     
    All my love,
    Taylor

    73: Starting Before You're Ready with Lauren Taylor

    73: Starting Before You're Ready with Lauren Taylor

     

    Artist and Business Owner, Lauren Taylor of Lauren Taylor Creates and LTCreative Tours, is here with us on the podcast today discussing the importance of just getting started before you're ready. It's one of my favorite episodes to date! Lauren's own entrepreneur journey is so inspiring and she shares helpful and actionable steps for us all to take to get momentum going on our visions and dreams.

     

    The truth is we all feel fear at times when it comes to our dreams. We can doubt ourselves and wonder if we can even do it. We might think we're too late to the game to get started, or think we can't do it because someone else already is. But Lauren helps crush these fears and teaches us how to feel the fear but still get started anyway!

     

    Some of my favorite takeaways from Lauren are:

    Her advice to do a "brain dump" and how this helps free up space in our minds and gives us clarity on our next best step
    A reminder to not compare yourself to others, especially when they might be 10 years further along in their career than you. Just focus on you.
    Make deadlines for yourself so you'll actually get going and feel accountable.
    Tell people about your new venture to make it feel more real, and again, help you be more accountable!
    No one is special when it comes to starting a business, anyone can really do it. It comes down to your drive and moving through your fear and pursuing it.
    And much more!

     

    One of my favorite things Lauren reminds us of in today's episode is that time will pass whether you go for it or not. You will be 5 years older 5 years from now regardless if you tried or not. So why not just try? It's never too late to start something new. Lauren is a great example of someone who has always trusted her intuition and gone for it in her life. Her story is truly motivating and I can't wait for you to meet her today on the show and leave feeling inspired! She's a total sweetheart and you're going to love her!

     

    Tune in below to meet Lauren and get help getting started on your dreams! Also, be sure to check out her amazing tour of Ireland with her company LTCreative Tours happening this May 19-26th. We talk all about it in today's show and it's a great trip to take to feel inspired and get started on your next project. You can learn more about it here!

     

    I can't wait for you to meet Lauren! All the links from today's episode are below as well. Sending you all the encouragement and love wherever you're at in your journey right now.

     
    Dwell in possibility,

    Taylor

Inspiring Podcast!

I enjoy the fresh content and food for thought from Taylor. Inspiring content for any stage of life you may be in.

BobDobbs305 ,

Started and never stopped

I like this gal. I started with episode #69 and I’m a fan of the book she talked about: “ask and it will be given”. I appreciate Taylor’s total honesty with pivoting, failing, depression, and winning. Wow, just, wow. Brave and Inspiring words here. Nix the long, cheesy intro and it would be perfect. Pure value here.

DarrienJamar🌹 ,

Inspiring.

Taylor brings authenticity, heart, and light into this world. I love how she is using her life story to inspire others. She’s encouraging us all all to say YES to the human experience. One of my favorite quotes by Gandhi says, “be the change you wish to see in the world.” Taylor is being the change...Taylor is being the l i g h t. Thank you 🙏🏽🌹
