The Business With Impact
Podcast Series

We’re interviewing leading experts in our industry to talk through how they’re responding and to get their best tips, strategies, and practices to recession-proof our businesses, protect our health, serve our families, and maintain financial peace.

Day 1

What we're doing at McMichael Consulting LLC

In this episode, I explain my heart behind this series and how the goal this week is to bring you along on this journey with us. You'll learn how we’re supporting our family, our team, and our customers over the next several weeks.

Day 2

Recession-Proof Your Online Business

In this episode, guest experts Stacy Tuschl and Mel Abraham share all about how to recession-proof your business.

Day 3

How to Move Forward

In this episode, we hear from six industry leaders who share what they’re doing in their businesses, how they’re changing up their message, how they are supporting their customers, and how they’re deciding when to promote and sell again (and how to promote and sell during this season).

Day 4

How to work with the kids at home

This episode is all about moms — and I invited a few of my good friends to talk about how they are doing it all — working with the kiddos at home, maintaining the peace during this season of social distancing, and still serving their clients in new and unique ways.

Day 5

How to boost your energy and immunity

In this episode, we're talking all about health. Physical health, nutritional health, emotional health, and spiritual health — and we're getting some of the BEST practical, tangible tips that we can use (with the kids!)

How To Thrive Not Just Survive: Recession-Proof Your Online Business

There's just a LOT going on right now, you know? And I know a question on a lot of our minds is “what do I do next?”🤷‍♀️

When uncertain times hit, it can feel overwhelming to know what steps to take. It's easy to react from our emotion or to start to look left-and-right to see what everyone else is doing.

Maybe you're feeling that way, too?😱

I want to propose a different course of action: Working from a plan.

⭐️This week, I'm going to be releasing some of my best free content available, sharing exactly what we're doing here to thrive, not just survive — to recession-proof our business — and I want to help you create a custom plan for yours.

We'll be answering questions like:

N
Which areas of your business are the MOST important to focus on (especially if you have limited time with the kids at home).
N
How to get (or stay) debt-free and make smart financial decisions (what to cut, when to cut, what to invest, when to invest).
N
The four areas we're focusing on right now in our business to generate more profit.
N
How to navigate business during this season today.
N
And much, much more…

3 E’s Philosophy:

  1. Essential: Purge, (Grab bags with handles & declutter your home from anything you aren’t using or have outgrown.)
  2. Enhancement: Yard Sale/Donate, (Set those bags by your door to put out for a yard sale or drop them off to your local donation site or favorite charity when we can rejoin the outside world again.)
  3. Extra: Style, (Make a list now or place an online order for containers & bins to properly organize & style the remaining items in your home. Don’t forget to measure your spaces first!)

For more resources, freebies & online courses visit EverythingWithStyle.com & follow me on Instagram @everythingwithstylemom to see how my clients & I organize & style our busy lives! I highly recommend the Home Course or Kids Course to get started.

Mark your calendars for April 6th when my podcast launches! Look for The Mom’s Organization Motivation Podcast with Paige Killian & hear how I break down the sometimes overwhelming or stressful tasks of getting organized into 3 simple steps! I’ll have special guests on as well to share how they are organizing & styling their busy lives & of course, lots of hilarious & totally relatable mom stories too. Sending big prayers & lots of well wishes your way!
