    The Mess of The Away Message

    What’s In This Episode:
    When you prep to step away from the office, do you get busy crafting the perfect away message?
    Let’s dig in to the way we communicate with people when we can’t communicate with people. More often than not, entrepreneurs just love to make this one complicated. But it doesn’t have to be.
    Jill Salzman turns the mundane into inspiration and transforms the impossible into the achievable. Through defying expectations and breaking the rules, she succeeds in inspiring entrepreneurs to figure out what works for them by using meaningful action to create positive results. Jill is the author of The Best Business Book In The World* (according to my mom) and the Amazon best-seller, Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs. She’s shared the speaker stage with Richard Branson, Sheryl Sandberg, Daymond John, Marilu Henner, and Desmond Tutu among others, and professed her love of Eddie Vedder in her TEDx talk on 11/11/11. She hosts the top-rated entertaining business podcast, Why Are We Shouting?, a question she asks herself daily. CNNMoney calls her a “mommy mogul.” MSN Live says she’s a “Cool Mom Entrepreneur We Love.” Forbes rated her a Top 100 Champion Small Business Influencer and voted The Founding Moms one of the Top 10 Websites For Entrepreneurs. When she's not speaking to audiences in patterned leggings or podcasting from her basement, she fruitlessly tries to convince her daughters that cassette tapes actually existed.

    Do you work breaks into your weekly work schedule? 
    Where there’s a will, there’s a way, they say. But Jill’s found that the will to take a rest from all the doing in an entrepreneur’s work week is superseded by the desire to succeed. That’s why she’s talking about the longstanding epidemic that’s called The Fear of Not Doing. It hits entrepreneurs hard, and we need a way out of it.

Real, Fun & needed!

I really enjoyed the short episodes and lessons that can be learned through this podcast. The interviews are super candid and of course REAL! As business owners we go through so much but there are definetely hidden messages in every lesson and Jill does a great job at exploring those topics! Episode 52- Minessa’s Money Matters was definitely a reminder we all need. She will be your coffee in the morning!
