054 - How to Get Your Family Behind Your Vision (Open Chat with My Mom)

December 6, 2018

My mother is in town to do some Christmas shopping this weekend, so I thought it would be fun to get her on the show to talk about how the world has changed in terms of career paths and entrepreneurship.

She talks about the educational journey that existed in the 70s that didn’t see as many people getting post-secondary education as today. There were also many employers that would hire and then train you.

This episode is great for anyone working part-time and facing some backlash from their family because of not taking a tradition career path. My mother shares advice about how to keep everyone happy.

053 - 4 Ways to Build Authority in Your Niche

December 3, 2018

Joe and I were in Jamaica for a week to celebrate the wedding of two of our clients. We travel a lot, but it’s usually based on going to conferences with a couple of days at the end for sightseeing.

If it wasn’t for this wedding, we probably would have never gone on an all-inclusive vacation. We had the best time ever! We had a massive plan to be productive while still relaxing, but none of that productivity happened. And that’s okay! I came back and I’m so relaxed and have so much clarity.

I talk today about how getting a business off the ground is a lot like getting an airplane off the ground (trust me). You’ll hear tips about how to build a social following and credibility.

052 - 5 Social Media Lessons from Taking an 11 Day Break from Instagram

November 22, 2018

I was so sick last week and tried to hold down the fort as much as a I could. During those eleven day of sickness, I didn’t post on social media at all and it was quite a learning experience. 

I love social media and creating a community that I get to interact with daily, so stepping away from it for so long as a pretty big deal to me. I’ve been building my business with social media since 2009, so I’m anxiety-ridden when I don’t show up on there. 

Hopefully you can learn some lessons from this talk and integrate them into your life before you have to take some downtime!
