EffortLess Podcast #10: Vision

 
 
 

Are you the visionary for your business?

Taking the big step and thinking beyond your day-to-day business may sound scary. Or just unnecessary right now. Maybe you’re more focused on getting clients, making rent, etc. And I GET that - but if we’re talking about making this business thing run a little easier… I have some news for you: the path is a lot easier when you know where you’re going. This episode talks about stepping into the role of a visionary in your business.

EffortLess Podcast #9: Consistency

 
 
 

I used to think I was a very inconsistent person…

But turns out I was just doing a lot of things that felt mis-aligned with who I was and how I wanted to run my business. Consistency is a goal I see so many entrepreneurs claim to want, myself included, and in this episode I expose what consistency started as meaning and how it developed over the course of 2018. I no longer crave consistency in the same way and I hope this episode sheds some light on the meaning and pressure you are attaching to the word.

EffortLess Podcast #8: Clarity

 
 
 

Fear is the biggest thing that holds us back in our businesses

You know the feeling… you have an idea, a thought, a goal - but when you go to act on it, you can’t. Maybe it doesn’t present as fear, but it presents as lack of motivation, or a new idea that is easier, or excuses that keep you from starting. I totally get that and have been there before numerous times too. BUT, here’s what I’ve learned: taking action DESPITE fear always leas to massive clarity. When I started this podcast I was terrified and just a few months in it’s completely reshaped and unleashed the entire vision for my business and for my life.

EffortLess Podcast #7: Boundaries

 
 
 

Sometimes your business really feels like your WHOLE LIFE

But truth be told, it’s not. It’s a part of your life and I strongly reject the idea that it is EVERYTHING. That’s too much pressure to put on one thing, right? Our business should not equal our self worth. That being said, it starts to feel like all you do/think/read/care about is your business at some point… and that’s when boundaries come into play.

As a service based business it’s so easy to fall into this trap that you have to be constantly available to clients because, well, hey, they are paying you. Boundaries are so important to maintaining a healthy distance, to giving yourself time and space outside of your business (and with your family, your friends, or even just your yoga mat), and unfortunately a few situations over the past few years had me learning that the hard way. Boundaries are a weird lesson because unfortunately you only realize you need them when you’re knee deep in the situation that you wish you had some boundaries around… take a listen and see what kind of boundaries you can create to better protect your time and energy.

EffortLess Podcast #6: Distill

 
 
 

You don’t have to do #allthethings to have a successful business…

And in fact, I think you should do way less than you currently are, probably. This episode is about distilling down in your business and only doing what is intentional. So many times we online business owners get caught up in the ‘next big thing’ or in doing what the gurus say to do, when in reality… none of that stuff matters if there’s not an intention and purpose behind it.

When I switched business models I immediately started pulling in so many clients that it was impossible to maintain doing everything ELSE in my business... writing newsletters, posting to Instagram, putting out new blog posts… all of those things suddenly seemed WAY less important. Turns out they WERE - because I had been doing them aimlessly, with no purpose, no intention, no goals. When I quit them all cold turkey - NOTHING happened in my business. I still made money. I still got clients. I was fine. That’s when I realized that those platforms, those items on my to do list, they were completely pointless to me if I didn’t have a real goal or purpose behind them, and I was just doing them because I thought I *had* to. Here’s the truth: none of that ish matters if you don’t know WHY you’re doing it…

EffortLess Podcast #5: Confidence

 
 
 

It can be totally scary to talk about what you do…

And I get that. But this episode is talking about gaining that confidence, and stepping into that mindset of being ready to stand out and attract the right clients. Instead of playing it safe, offering what everyone else is offering, and picking your prices based on the rest of the herd… be willing to be unique.

In late 2016 I switched gears majorly and started promoting services that I hadn’t seen a lot of other people doing or talking about. It was scary, but the proof is in the… booked out immediately pudding? You can create a unique, niche version of your services and this episode is all about taking the chance and doing that.

EffortLess Podcast #4: Trust

 
 
 

How often do you ignore that voice in your head?

In the beginning of my business, I ignored it a lot. But, oookay folks, so this is episode 4 and we’re FINALLY getting out of the everything-is-hard part of business and into the real, exciting changes. I know it must be so strange to want to share all the hard stuff from the beginning, but I really feel like it’s relatable in so many ways to the struggles I hear from others and my hope really was to emphasize this idea that a) you’re not alone, b) you’re not the only one that didn’t have overnight success, and c) things do get better in business.

This episode talks a lot about trusting in yourself, your ideas, your goals, and acting on it. I hope to show you that you don’t have to do things the same way as everyone else, and you can trust your intuition and see amazing results.

EffortLess Podcast #3: Desperation

 
 
 

Being a business owner is not always easy…

Today’s episode is about a really scary feeling in business or life... desperation. Desperate times do not need to call for desperate measures. Desperate times instead should call for you to STOP. Stop all this effort-ing and should-ing and reckless abandon. Stop, assess and evaluate, get some help potentially, and resolve the issue.

This episode and episode 2 (which is about burnout) go hand in hand, because these events were happening at the around same time and they both were big ah-ha moments that I know others can learn from.

So while the previous episode had a lot of personal details, I wanted to show you a bit of how burnout was showing up in my business around this time and some major things to think about and work on in your own business.

EffortLess Podcast #2: Burnout

 
 
 

Welcome to Episode 2… Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed?

Today’s episode is about something I am sure A LOT of you have experienced - it’s almost like a dirty word in business… burnout.

If you’ve been there, you KNOW how much burnout sucks. It’s like feeling mentally and physically exhausted and uninspired and just bad.

In my own experience my worst bout of burnout (try saying that five times fast) happened for one main reason: I would never say NO. So here’s your takeaway: Be WILLING to say NO. Be willing to look at something and recognize when it’s not a right fit, for whatever reason, and decline accepting it into your life or your business. You can set whatever boundaries you want, you are allowed to say NO.

EffortLess Podcast #1: Failure

 
 
 

Episode 1 is all about the scary stuff…

The things we business owners don’t necessarily LOVE to talk about - FAILURES. Mistakes! The bad stuff! The part that doesn’t get a beautiful stock photo on Instagram, right?! We don’t glorify all the shitty stuff, right?!

But first I want you to know one thing: every thing that you consider a failure is a lesson. Every misstep or mistake can be a huge learning opportunity. And if you PUT IN THE WORK, you can overcome whatever adversity your business faces. Hell, you can overcome anything!

I hope this episode inspires and motivates you to change your view on mistakes, failures, or mess-ups from your business past and instead see them for what they truly are: lessons, places to grow from, and opportunities to learn.

This episode is the introduction to season 1 of the Effortless Podcast.

I’m excited for you to take a listen!
