Balancing Motherhood and Business

Balancing Motherhood and Business

Katie Fleming:

Balancing Motherhood and Business

The other day, my daughter asked me, “Why is it when you tell me something I don't always do it, but when my teacher tells me to do the same thing, I really understand it. How can I hear my teacher better than you?”

Wow. That's what happens all the time, right? Our parents or our spouses will tell us something but we won't do it. Then along comes a friend or a trusted adviser and they give us the exact same advice and it's as if we've heard it for the very first time. 

I hope that in today's episode you hear and resonate with what is shared because it's really good and it's really important. This message could have the potential to change the trajectory of your business.

Today on the Business With Impact podcast I am joined by my new friend, Katie Fleming! Katie is a podcast host, speaker and a business and marketing mentor for mom entrepreneurs who are coaches, consultants and service providers growing their income to 6 figures without sacrificing their family life. She is a big believer in what she calls, Ambitious Motherhood™, pursuing your calling both in and out of your home.

One of the things that I love about Katie and about this episode is that we have the same heart and the same passion for female entrepreneurs. We're going to talk through some concepts that you may have heard before, but what I hope is that when you hear Katie talk about it, it will resonate with you in a whole new way as she explains it.

So, if listening to me say it before hasn't helped, I know that hearing Katie say it, and the way that she explains it, is going to change the way that you do business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

>> At 2:34, Katie jumps right in to telling us about her journey of becoming a mom entrepreneur who trains other business moms how to take their expertise and turn it into a six-figure business that they run on “nap time hours” (aka less than 20 hours a week) by training them to balance chasing their dreams and being present with their family.

>> At 4:33, Katie shares how to overcome self-deprecating thoughts, along with other common lies we tell ourselves as business owners (hint: mindset, mindset, mindset!).

>> At 8:13, we talk about one of the main problems entrepreneurs face and how to overcome it: narrowing down your ONE offer. From there Katie shares some really practical tips and advice on how to move forward in your market after nailing down your one offer.

Doing Business the Noble Way vs. The Normal Way

I'm so excited to be joined today on the Business With Impact podcast by my friend Michelle Myers from She Works HIS Way. She's also the creator of the Narrow conference, Network Marketing Nobility and the swHw Business Tracker, the author of Famous in Heaven and at Home, and a certified StoryBrand Guide and Copywriter. Basically, her work happy place is pulling out of others what God already put in them.

Now, you might remember Michelle from the very first episode of this podcast and I'm excited to have her back on to talk about something new that she's been doing in her own life and business. We're going to talk all about doing business the noble way instead of the normal way.

And y'all, I wanted to stop and tweet every other line from this episode. So if you're busy, this is one that you might want to listen to the first time and then grab a pen and some paper and take notes the second time through.

I know you're going to love this episode just as much as I do!

>> At 4:09, Michelle jumps right into the in’s and out’s of network marketing, an often misunderstood industry, and offers business insight to the skeptic, the one who’s been burned by network marketers, and to the one knee-deep into their industry by encouraging us that while you can’t change someone’s past experiences, you can choose to give them a new one.

>> At 11:36, Michelle talks about some of the common mistakes network marketers make and how you can do your best to move on from those past errors.

>> At 15:15, Michelle gives us all the details about her new course, Network Marketing Nobility! And trust me– if you are in the network marketing field or are thinking about it, this program is definitely something to consider pursuing to help your business thrive!

Sigrun Gudjonsdottir:

Taking Action in Our Businesses

Today on the Business With Impact podcast I'm so excited for you to be inspired by Sigrun Gudjonsdottir!

As your friend (I like to consider us friends!), I have to tell you that what we talk about today is not only going to inspire you, but I hope it empowers you to take action in your business! Sigrun is going to share all about her entrepreneurial journey and one really big thing that she's been up to that you are going to want to know all about.

Sigrun is on a mission to accelerate gender equality through female entrepreneurship. She is the leading business mentor for female online entrepreneurs in Europe, a TEDx speaker, and host of the Sigrun Show podcast. In 2014, Sigrun started her online business and within 4 years she built a 7 figure business helping women from all over the world. Her signature program is SOMBA (Sigrun’s Online MBA), SOMBA Momentum, a VIP Mastermind, and Mastermind Retreat Iceland, a six day business retreat in Iceland.

>> At 6:45, we talk about the important entrepreneurial quality of setting your mind on something and seeing it through to the end. Is this a trait that can be learned? Or is this a quality that anyone who wants to get into entrepreneurship must have naturally?

>> At 12:01, Sigrun tells us all about her amazing new event she’s hosting in 2020 (it may or may not include renting out a famous concert hall in Iceland!) and how her boldness and tenacity to see her business thrive led her to making that initial phone call to book the concert hall.

>> At 17:15, Sigrun talks about the importance of live events and how attending live events can really impact the growth of not just your business, but you personally as well.

Failing in Order to Grow

Failing in Order to Grow

Rachel McMichael:

Failing in Order to Grow

I remember when I was first getting started in the online space and a coach said something to me along the lines of, “The biggest breakthroughs are going to happen after the break downs.” And I remember thinking “I don't want to fail!”

See, growing up in school we're conditioned to think that an ‘F’ is a failure, that it’s a really bad thing. But in today's Business With Impact episode, I hope to have the opportunity to shift your thinking when it comes to failures in your business.

And you guys this is huge. This could change your business and change your life!

>> At 6:18, I discuss how every decision and failure in your business is just one stepping stone to get you to the success you want. I also share a very private failure that I had in my business and how that got my business to where it is today. 

>> At 11:54, I talk about the different kinds of reactions we can have to failure in our business and how we can turn that around and instead use it for success!

>> At 17:50, we talk about resiliency and how that characteristic alone set apart and helped so many famous entrepreneurs we know about today finally see the success they wanted (the success we all benefit from now). What if that setback you're experiencing right now, what if that’s the thing that's meant to catapult you to the next level in your business?

Finding the Courage to Speak Your Truth

Finding the Courage to Speak Your Truth

Jasmine Star:

Finding the Courage to Speak Your Truth

One of the hardest parts about being an entrepreneur is learning how you can stand out in a sea of voices on social media. Believe me when I say, that this was my struggle when I was first starting out and it can be a paralyzing thought.

How do you find the people you are going to serve?
How do you find the right words to say to sell your products?
How do you find the courage you need to say things that may be a bit controversial?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today on the Business With Impact podcast I’m am so excited to be joined by my friend and Mastermind sister, Jasmine Star of Social Curator. Today's conversation with Jasmine is one that is going to leave you empowered, inspired, and encouraged to stay committed, stay courageous, and stay consistent in your business.

Jasmine is going to share some of the obstacles that she had to overcome to get where she's at today and then we're going to talk about some incredible things that she's been doing in her own business to help entrepreneurs like you and I find our voice and lead confidently and courageously.

>> At 3:12, Jasmine shares with us what it means to speak our truths as business owners and how, eventually, the courage we have in doing that helps us to grow in our personal lives and help us grow our businesses.

>> At 9:10, we talk about “embracing the no” in our businesses and how to handle it when people say no to our personal brands (hint: you shouldn’t take it personally!).

>> At 13:20, Jasmine talks all about her platform, The Social Curator, how she started that, why she started it, and how it has helped thousands of entrepreneurs find their voice on social media by giving them the tools they need: captions, photos, inspiration, and so much more! Listen along to see how this tool could really help transform your business too!

Leading a Purpose Driven Business

I'm so excited to be joined today on the Business With Impact podcast by my friend Bob Heilig from Your Virtual Upline!

Bob is the Founder of Your Virtual Upline, a training resource for the new wave of network marketers that put love, service and giving at the heart of their business, and want strategies and techniques that work in the world we live in today. The mission of the company is to help you build a profitable network marketing business that gives back to the world in an even bigger way!

Now you might think that because I'm speaking with Bob we're only going to be talking about all things direct sales but you'd be wrong. While we do speak a bit about the industry, the lessons that Bob shares on today's episode are relevant for any purpose driven online business owner– and if you're reading this right now, I know that that's you.

On today's episode Bob specifically talks about what purpose driven leadership looks like and what to do when all seems lost. And I know that by the time you finish with today's episode you're going to want to put it on replay and listen over and over again, every single day!

>> At 5:12, we get to dive into the background of Bob’s story from how he got started in the network marketing industry which led to a dream and goal to really revolutionize an industry that has a very interesting reputation in our culture today through his signature coaching programs.

>> At 11:23, Bob talks us through a time in his life and business when he wasn’t exactly feeling fulfilled (hint: money isn’t the answer!) and how he turned that around to find his greater mission and purpose.

>> At 15:17, Bob leaves us entrepreneurs (whether you’re in network marketing or not!) with some excellent advice and practical tips on what we can do to keep going when things get difficult in our own businesses.
