There isn’t a formula for success…!

Call me crazy, but I don’t think you can create a formula for success. Sure, people can share what steps they took that got them to their version of success — but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are selling success. What’s more valuable and important than just seeking out other’s answers is to learn to create and find your OWN answers.

EffortLess Podcast: It’s Okay to FIND Your Vision Over Time

Don’t let the idea that you “don’t have it all figured out” hold you back from starting…

When I started my business I had no idea what I wanted to do in the BIG picture sense. I knew I wanted to work from home, but I didn’t have a VISION. And I feel for others that don’t yet, either — we hear a lot of people with amazing visions and motivations, and while that is so great for them, it’s not everyone’s story. It can be intimidating to not have that, and we can use it as an excuse to not get started.

In this episode I share my experience around this topic and why it is important to get started anyway!

Sometimes it’s easier to see your stories in others

And I get that. I can see other people’s stories so easily - but my own?! That’s a whole different beast. I’ve been saying all month how the best way to start noticing your own stories is to first notice others… well… here are some major ones I’ve had to work through in my business for you to assess and test on yourself!

In this episode I’m getting all sorts of vulnerable and sharing with you the top blocks I had starting my business - some of them I am still working on! Do any of these feel true for you?

EffortLess Podcast: You're Not Lazy... You Just Lack Clarity

 
How many times have you proclaimed - I'm SO LAZY. Here's the deal: I don't think you are lazy. I think you lack clarity! Click through to read the shownotes and listen - don't forget to subscribe and rate on iTunes! | EffortLess Podcast | TheCrownFox | #podcast #businesspodcast #mindsetpodcast
 
 

Telling yourself you are lazy is a story…

And it’s also not true. I don’t believe anyone is inherently lazy. Instead, I think they lack clarity on what they should do, and feel too overwhelmed to figure it out. Sure, sometimes we just need a day off — but if you’re finding yourself stuck in action and “being lazy” then you need this episode!

In this episode we talk through the story of being lazy and give some ideas for how you can move past being lazy and focus on the actual business-growing steps you need to take.

EffortLess Podcast: Why Are You Holding Yourself Back?

 
 
 

Why do you keep holding yourself back from what you want?

The only limit is yourself - I know you’ve heard that before, but have you realllllly heard it? And thought about it? And recognized that you are the one holding yourself back out of fear? Fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of judgement… all of these fears come up and keep us complacent with the way things are (so that we struggle to move to what we WANT).

In this episode we dissect these fears and work through facing them together. I share some insights into my own practice for overcoming fears too!

EffortLess Podcast: Discovering + Learning To Rewrite Your Own Stories

 
 
 

What stories do you tell yourself?

Throughout our lives we’ve all adopted beliefs, stories, and blocks around certain things: maybe we think we have to work hard to make money, or that we aren’t smart enough to grow our businesses, or maybe for you it’s something else. But here’s the deal: those things aren’t actually true.

In this episode we dive into stories and blocks - discovering your own and my process for beginning to rewrite them into something that can help us grow, develop, and live the life we want.

EffortLess Podcast: Stop Giving Up On Your Goals and Yourself

 
 
 

Do you BELIEVE yourself?

Notice I didn’t ask if you believe IN yourself - but do you actually TRUST yourself when you say you are going to do something? A lot of don’t and it’s because we have subconsciously conditioned ourselves to not trust our own promises that we make internally.

In this episode we will dive deeper into self-integrity and how to overcome a distrust in yourself! I’ll share some tactics I’ve been using in my own life to start to once again BELIEVE myself.

EffortLess Podcast: Where Will You Be One Year From Now

 
 
 

Do you know where you want to be one year from now?

Have you gotten specific with where you want to be one year from now? Or are you still saying things like “rich” and “successful”? Now don’t get me wrong, those are great goals - but they aren’t really GOALS. They are too vague, to subjective… what if instead you got really detailed about what you want?

This episode walks you through a practice of visualizing where you will be one year from now. Dive deep and get specific - think through one day and use all your senses to paint the real picture. Then, with that knowledge in hand, you can start taking action that moves you towards those goals instead of aimlessly working away.

EffortLess Podcast: Defining Success For Your Business + Yourself

 
 
 

There’s no ONE way to be successful. You get to define what success means in your life.

Recently I’ve noticed a surplus of ‘shame marketing’ tactics - people making you feel bad about what you have done or are doing in your business. And I HATE it! It’s the worst way to help people (and in fact, it’s doing more harm than good) - this episode stemmed from me talking about that. What came up for me when I was feeling frustrated by these abrasive messages online was this…

How can someone tell you that you AREN’T successful, when success is a completely personal thing? There’s no universal bench-mark, no ONE goal we all are working towards. You get to define your success, it’s completely totally up to you. After you listen, I’d love to know: what does success mean TO YOU?

You deserve to celebrate your wins! And all that you do!

There’s a billion reasons we don’t take the time to celebrate our wins - we’re too busy, it didn’t even cross our mind, or (most likely) we’re busy focusing on the ‘mistakes’ or ‘failures’ instead. I feel you. BUT creating a practice of celebrating your wins is a game-changer.

EffortLess Podcast: Why Beta Offers Are So Valuable For You + Your Business

 
 
 

Putting yourself out there is scary

I totally get that. Earlier this year I put out a brand new offer, something way outside of my comfort zone. After putting it off, procrasti-working, and nearly giving up multiple times I finally got the courage to say ‘hey! This is for sale!’ … what helped make that easier? Offering it as a beta.

Betas are AMAZING. They let you put out offers or ideas with the disclaimer that you know it’s not quite perfect yet - and get direct feedback from people to help finish the job amazingly. I can make this blanket statement (you know how much I hate those, so this is a big deal!) that everything I offer from now on will start as a beta. The feedback, the experience, the confidence… it’s is just SO valuable.

EffortLess Podcast: Simplifying to Grow with Krista Rae

 
 
 

It’s our first guest appearance!

I am so excited to bring on our first guest, Krista of KristaRae.co! During our conversation we discuss the history of her business and how she’s navigated it over the past few years. Like a lot of entrepreneurs, Krista was in hustle hustle hustle mode - overwhelmed with huge, mile-long to-do lists, working 12-14 hour days… you know the drill. Through cutting out a ton of “extra” work that wasn’t serving a purpose (or really making a profit) Krista freed up her time, gave herself some more brain-space to get creative and grow her business, and oh yeah… do it all with a newborn!

This episode has so many great takeaways and insights into the actual practice of simplifying your business, and saying yes to your genius work. And I know during listening we joke about a fan-club… but I’m kinda serious. Hit me up if you want to join ;)

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.
