Anybody who has ever done something new for the first time will tell you it's a bit stressful. Ask any entrepreneur how their stress-life is and they'll most likely tell you they're hanging by a thread. I say that from experience, because I've been all versions of stress management as an entrepreneur. But where does this stress come from? Well, Benjamin Dell, founder and CEO at Missinglettr.com is here with us today to chat briefly about just that.
Today we chat about what it means to say yes or no to something. I'm stoked that we've got BOTH Samatha Parker and Kathy Rasmussen with us. I really just love what they're putting out into the world and knew they would have a LOT to say on this month's topic of Risk and Rejection! We talk about how risk and rejection have played a part in the start of their new magazine, partnership, and business.
Today I have to thank Jessica Ribera for being so willing and open to jump into our conversation so blindly. She and I talk about the moments we share while dealing with our respective pains and losses. Jessica lost her ballet career. I lost my career as a cellist. Today we both find ourselves using the word writer as a self-descriptor. Jessica and I both retain our emotional sobriety today, however we do talk about the moments we denied our lack of emotional sobriety and instead tried to numb or deny the pain we were so vividly fighting to feel. We talk about writing. We talk about being honest. We talk about career-ending injuries. We talk about gaining, losing, and regaining our vision for the possibility. Please enjoy my brand new friend Jessica Ribera!
Liis Windischmann is with us today! Liis is a curvy model and a TV personality who is a massive advocate for wellness, body love, and consciously creating epic lives. Today Liis and I are talking about Power of Choice. I knew she'd be a great person for this subject because there's no way someone would choose to advocate for anything if they didn't know how to utilize their personal power of choice. But Liis and I also discuss the smaller, more common versions of utilizing your power of choice. So if you're feeling a little bit boxed into a corner today or like you're being victimized in some form or fashion (even by your own self!) then today's episode is for you.
The past 2 weeks were filled with unexpected changes in my personal life. These changes greatly affected my work life. So in light of this month's top of "power of choice" in the realm of self-promotion, today we're chatting about how to regain your power by enforcing boundaries and drawing new lines in the sand. This is a crucial skill for anyone with personal life and a career - we all need the ability to balance crisis between the two realms.
In this episode I give several real-life examples of how I have personally gone about self-promotion in a different way. I also honestly explain some of the benefits and drawbacks from doing self-promotion differently. I'm really hoping this slight variation in this month's theme is helpful for you! If it is, let me know!
Fabienne Raphaël is a super rad consultant to folks looking to leave their corporate day-job into the online business world. Fabienne and I met online because we were both building similar kinds of excitement with our businesses. Even if you're not a business owner, I know you'll glean so much from this conversation, as we discuss solutions that can apply to ANY person or situation.
If numbers and data kinda make your eye roll and blood boil, then today's episode is for you. I asked Ashley Armstrong (a leading Amazon Seller Strategist who helps companies create amazing results on Amazon) to come talk about how she uses numbers to guide her people to the right choices. She has learned the science of reading numbers like a really good novel and uses that science to advise her clients precisely what products future customers are looking for. Her wisdom and drive is something I know we could all use a dose of from time to time. I'm so happy she's with us today!
