As entrepreneurs we often get pulled into the pressures, stresses, and let’s be real - sexiness -  of things we work on each day. But there comes a point when begin to alienate the thing that most likely inspired us to become business owners in the first place: our family.

The Art of Communication: More than Just Words - Ep #09

 

When getting ready for a big talk, I bet you spend the bulk of your preparation time developing your content. Whether it's creating a mind map or an outline, writing a script to practice from, or jumping straight to it and creating a PowerPoint. 

Regardless, I bet you spend more time creating the content than practicing HOW you’ll deliver your message. 

But remember this: Your words matter (work on those), but how you deliver them matters far more. Because even when not speaking, you’re communicating to your audience. 

When you embrace this and get more intentional with how you communicate, you become far more influential. Learn how in today’s episode as I introduce my Delivery Core Four and share how you can elevate your skills.

A Unexpected Lesson from Q&A - Ep #08

 

Last weekend I attended Amy Porterfield’s Entrepreneur Experience Conference. If you weren’t there, just let me tell you it was amazing. I learned so much and I get the opportunity to share a little of what I learned in this episode of the Finding Your It Factor Podcast. 

One of the biggest takeaways was my realization that sometimes we focus so hard on how we show up on stage, but we don’t put a lot of energy and attention into how we show up for ourselves. 

Are you guilty of that?

I loved watching Amy answer questions during Q & A time. She actually listened. She actually cared. She brought humility and passion and compassion and presence to each conversation. 

I bet if you thought about it, you do the same with your clients and followers, right? 

But what about you? Do you treat yourself the same way? Do you show up for yourself when no one else is around?

Take a listen to this off the cuff episode as we talk about how to...

How to Get Unstuck and Achieve Goals that Actually Matter - Ep #07

 

Are you a self proclaimed personal development junkie like me? Podcasts, audiobooks, actual books, online courses… scrolling IG or FB for doses of inspiration? It can fuel you with ideas for an ongoing list of dreams and goals… but it can also leave you feeling, at times, less than enough.

It’s like those dreams and ideas become this looming to-do list of things you’ve yet to accomplish. And you realize that sometimes the goal you set for yourself isn’t the goal you truly want. 

It’s a terrible feeling to know that you could be making strides toward your big goal, but those other items on your list make you feel…stuck. And out of sheer stubbornness, you just don’t want to take an item off your to-do list. 

…and so, it sits there, week after week and month after month, making you feel guilty about the lack of progress you’ve made. Sometimes preventing you from working on the goals that really matter....
