Five Minute Favorites: Courage with Jasmine Star

FIVE MINUTE Favorites:

Courage with Jasmine Star

Welcome to the newest segment of the Business With Impact Podcast!

Over the years, we've had so many incredible guests and so this month,

we're starting a new Five Minute Friday Favorites series

where we're taking some of the most inspirational highlights from guests we've had on the show!

Every guest we've ever had has been incredible and so we're starting off with the episodes that received the most plays, comments, and feedback. That means that today, you're going to hear not one, but two, clips from my former mastermind sister, Jasmine Star!

And these two clips are so convicting!

In the first clip, she's sharing the importance of having courage in your business and then right after that, I'm going to share where she is talking about what she does when she hears the word, ‘No.’ The reality is as business owners, we are going to hear that word and we've got to get used to it. But the way Jasmine has reframed hearing ’no’ is something that is so important for every entrepreneur!

I know that today you're going to leave this episode feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to do big things in your business. Let’s dive in!

Creating Content That Converts [Part 2]

rachel mcmichael:

Creating Content That Converts [Part 2]

Welcome back to part two of our content training episode where we’re talking all about how to create content that truly converts!

If content hasn't felt simple, we're going to break down three things you can start doing now to simplify your content creation.

We're talking HOW to create content in as little as 30 minutes a week!

I am so excited to dive into the details, but if you missed part one, then it might be a little bit confusing to dive into this episode without that background–so go back, listen to last week's episode, and then meet us right back here for part two!

Let’s dive in!

1:45

At 1:45, we waste no time and pick up right where we left off last week with Step #2: Creating a quarterly strategy + core content! This is a BIG portion of today’s episode and I don’t want you to miss anything I share here, so make sure you have pen and paper ready to go!

18:22

At 18:22, we get into Step #3: Your social media content strategy! We talk about what we do right now for our social media plan (and pro tip: don't skip the quarterly content because you're so worried about the social media content!).

20:38

At 20:38, I walk you through what all of this looks like in my business and leave you with some practical next steps for you to start creating content that converts as soon as you’re done listening to this episode!

Creating Content That Converts [Part 1]

rachel mcmichael:

Creating Content That Converts [Part 1]
When it comes to creating content for your business…whether that's a social media post, a blog post, a podcast, a video, a reel or whatever type of content…I found that there are two ends of the spectrum.

On one end, we have those who are so clear on who they are and who they serve and the direction they want to take their audience, that it all flows organically.

If you're on this side, you might find yourself wondering why people even feel the need to talk about content creation. You might find content to come super easy. You probably don't waste time worrying about what anyone else is thinking. And you can't even imagine scrolling for inspiration because inspiration is everywhere!

But maybe you tend to fall more on the other side of the spectrum. Maybe when it comes to writing that email, it feels like that blinking cursor just won't stop blinking. Maybe you've spent what feels like hours typing out the perfect caption only to second guess it minutes later. Maybe you haven't put any content out there for a while, or maybe you're putting content out there but it doesn't seem to have the desired result.

If content hasn't felt simple, we're going to break down three things you can start doing now to simplify your content creation.

We're talking HOW to create content in as little as 30 minutes a week!

Let’s dive in!

4:01

At 4:01, before we dive into the practical parts of content creation, I want to talk about the one thing that even if you have everything ready to go content-wise, you might end up stuck if you don’t have this one thing: Belief! If you want to have great content, you actually have to start by not making it such a big deal, and we have to stop waiting for it to be perfect.

12:03

At 12:03, we discuss follower count! Another hindrance to many people for not creating solid content. So many business owners believe they have to have a HUGE following before they really focus on content. We bust that myth in this segment of the episode!

16:00

At 16:00, we start to discuss step one of creating the best content: Identifying your ONE thing! If you don't focus on the one thing in your business, and likewise, the content for your business…you'll focus on all the things instead.

Be sure to tune in next week as we dive even further into content creation as we discuss creating your quarterly content and then how to create a monthly social media strategy!

What Being Sick Taught Me About Business

What Being Sick Taught Me About Business

rachel mcmichael:

What Being Sick Taught Me About Business

We’re back!

And I am soo excited to be here recording this today. It’s been a crazy month. We received countless emails, DMs, and texts asking where I’ve been and if everything was ok…

Yes, I am… but I wasn’t… and I want to talk about that today.

In today’s episode I’m going to share three lessons that being out sick and grieving the loss of one of my husband’s friends taught me and our family — and the lessons it taught me about being even more intentional about living for my purpose – in my purpose – and on purpose — and I’m going to share how this is changing the way we do business…

Because if you’re listening to this episode right now, I’m guessing that you want to create a business that allows for you to disconnect. A business that helps you prioritize the most important things to you – like your faith and your family – right? While serving the people who need your help the most.

And I don’t have to tell you that so often, we lose sight of these things in the day to day hustle and work-flow.

So I’m using the experiences from this past month as a time to reset – and I’m going to invite you to do the same!

7:50

At 7:50, we hit Lesson #1: Are you living your priorities? What does your money say about them? What does your calendar say about them? What does your social media say about them?

11:52

At 11:52, we move to Lesson #2: Is your business and are your finances set up in a way that if the unexpected happened to you – you could take time off or things would still work in the background?

13:45

At 13:45, we finish with Lesson #3: What’s the most important thing that needs to happen today?
This week’s episode is a lot…but the one thing I want to leave you with is this:

You were divinely created on purpose and for a purpose. It’s time to live in that purpose. And on this podcast, we’re continuing to dive in each week on how you can create a priority-based business with impact. I’m glad to be back, and I’ll see you next week!

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business

rachel mcmichael:

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business
Rachel Smiling

Have you ever noticed that some people seem like overnight successes? It feels like they just started their business yesterday and now they've hit a big milestone or a big goal, while others seem to struggle through it for years without much to show for it.

Why is that? Why is it that most people start a business and fail in the first 18 months?

On today's Business With Impact podcast, I'm going to share with you the most important decision I made in my business that changed everything.

I am not an overnight success, but some may think I am. I want to share some behind the scenes of what happened and three ways to help you decide what your business needs.

Because if you've got a big heart to serve others and you're ready to step into that purpose, but you're having trouble getting in front of those people…That can change starting now.

2:37

>> At 2:37, I start off with a little behind-the-scenes story of something that happened to me in my business. So, for anyone who thinks I was an “overnight success,” this is for you. It was definitely not my shining moment, but I hope it helps encourage you!

7:48

>> At 7:48, we get into the meat of this episode which is this: I waited far too long in my business to invest in a course, program, or coach to get the help that I needed. We can’t be afraid to ask for help or we’ll never get the results we need!

9:25

>> At 9:25, we spend the rest of the episode discussing this idea of getting help. Whether that’s a coach or something else, we go over three important questions to ask yourself before deciding which is best for you.

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business

Three Questions To Ask Before Investing In Your Business

rachel mcmichael:

Three Questions To Ask Before Investing In Your Business
Rachel Smiling

One of the questions I get asked all of the time is, “how do I decide what to invest in and when to invest in my business?”

And I get it, because you only have to open up Facebook to get presented with offer after offer after offer. You know what I'm talking about, right? Those $37 offers, $27 offers, and $15 promises to change your business forever. Not to mention the high level masterminds group coaching programs and summits…

It can feel like a lot. Am I right?

And so if you've been asking this question (and it's a good question to ask for your business), this episode is for you!

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I'm going to share the three questions I always ask before making any business investment decisions!

3:28

>> At 3:28, I start off with a story about my vacuum and how it relates to all of our businesses. It might sound like a bizarre analogy, but trust me! It totally makes sense when you listen in.

10:14

>> At 10:14, we dive into question number one: Do I actually need this? Here we break down what’s going on in your business and how to really think through whether or not you truly need another “quick fix” for your business.

15:40

>> At 15:40, after discussing question #2, we jump right into question #3 here: Will it give me a return on my investment? Meaning, will it help me sell more programs or services, or will it help me not t
