There are a lot of misconceptions about what a lifestyle entrepreneur is.

Your business is about your dreams. It's up to you to figure out what those dreams really are and then design your business around them.

It's a pretty safe bet the vast majority of entrepreneurs prefer to have a business that allows them to spend time with their families, live their passions, and fulfill their purpose.

If the same is true for you, it's never too early to begin designing your business around those things.

That's why I'm discussing what you'll need to think about during that design process.

In this episode, I provide four strategies that will help you build a life-first business that truly meets your needs.

Today, We're Talking About Facebook Marketing.

It's no secret that Facebook and I aren't the best of friends. As an online entrepreneur coach and strategist, I know Facebook is an important tool for me to connect with you, and for you to connect with your followers too.

As coaches and entrepreneurs, we all need to embrace and leverage Facebook marketing in a way that delivers results.

So today I've invited our inhouse Facebook Marketing Expert, Sarah Tomes onto the show, to get real about growing your organic reach through Facebook (and dealing with some of the recent changes Facebook has made regarding business visibility).

Sarah teaches these concepts in a way that are easy to understand and you'll leave walking away with simple, immediate action steps.

In this episode, Sarah talks about what and when to post, how to speak to your clients in your posts, why you need to stop using 3rd party post scheduling tools, and so much more!

When it comes to starting a new business, you don't always have a ton of money to pour into every step of the process.

That's where the strategies in this episode come into play.

While every entrepreneur, no matter how far along in their business they are, can use the strategies in this episode, they will be particularly valuable for those in Phases 1 and 2 of my SweetLife Entrepreneur System.

If you're still working a full-time job and you're starting a business that will fit your ideal lifestyle, or if you're in a season of change in your life and you're wanting a business that will allow for that change, this episode is for you.

In this episode, I break down four strategies for growing your new business using sweaty equity instead of money.

Social media has given us a false sense of connection.

We think we have a large network because of our social media "friends" and followers but the vast majority of these connections aren't genuine.

It's always a good idea to network and build relationships with peers but this especially important for those in Phase 1 of my SweetLife Entrepreneur System, entrepreneurs who’ve been doing at it for a while but feel lonely and disconnected due to working from home, and for entrepreneurs who’ve who are ready to grow their business in new ways.

Creativity is contagious.

When you take the time to build genuine relationships, you'll be challenged and inspired in new ways.

In this episode, I talk about three reasons why you need a network, how to build a network, and some of the reasons you might not have already built a network.

There is a direct correlation between your body and your business.

When you take care of your body, and your health, you're also taking care of your business.

If you've feel beyond exhausted, like you can't think clearly, or are overly stressed, you're probably not taking care of your body the way you should be.

While it's important for every entrepreneur to take care of their bodies, self-care is particularly important for those in Phase 2 of my SweetLife Entrepreneur System.

Science proves that exercise and self-care helps you think more clearly, feel more energized, gain confidence, and feel less stressed; all of which translates into being better able to take care of your family and business.

In this episode, I explain how scientific data proves you should be taking care of your body if you want to take care of your business and I also provide simple steps and strategies to help you start taking control of your health.

Your mind controls your success.

This is something all entrepreneurs must come to terms with. Our minds are incredibly powerful and we need to be able to harness by ensuring we have the right mindset for our businesses ... an entrepreneur mindset.

Having an entrepreneur mindset is important to absolutely every entrepreneur; no matter what phase of the SweetLife Entrepreneur System you're in.

There are certain character traits you'll find in almost every single successful entrepreneur.

But, what if you're not born with those traits? What if you don't inherently have an entrepreneur mindset? Can you still become a successful entrepreneur?

In this episode, I explain exactly what an entrepreneur mindset is, break down the ideal entrepreneur character traits, and give my honest opinion on whether or not you have to be born with an entrepreneur mindset or if you can develop one over time.

You know where you are right now in your business and you know where you ultimately want to be, but what about the steps in the middle?

What products, services, programs, or events are going to get you to your dream lifestyle?

The steps between where you are now and where you want to be are the items you launch in 2018.

However, it's crucial you don't just launch into action without properly thinking everything through and making sure what you decide to launch is actually the right choice for you and your ideal clients.

It's that important part of the process we'll be discussing today.

In this episode, I break down the three main factors you need to consider to ensure you choose the right product, service, program, or event to launch in 2018.

It's that time of year when people feel compelled to make resolutions even if they know they're not going to stick to them. Empty resolutions are just a distraction and will keep you from make any real progress with your business.

Instead of giving in to this behavior, I want to encourage you to set some goals with some substance behind them so you'll not only have the satisfactions of achieving them but you also have a better business and life.

That's exactly why I'm hosting my Commitment Week challenge for the third year in a row.

In this episode, I breakdown the four core areas we'll be focusing on during Commitment Week 2018 and in each of the next four episodes of the podcast.

In this special episode, I'm joined by the amazing Aaron Beach. Not only is Aaron a father of three and an entrepreneur, but he's also my incredible husband.

While I've pretty much always been an entrepreneur, Aaron didn't begin his entrepreneurial journey until a little over three years ago.

Today, we run multiple businesses, and our household, in a way that allows us to live the life we've always wanted.

Being an entrepreneur is difficult. Being an entrepreneur with young kids at home is incredibly difficult.

However, Aaron and I are proof that all that struggles and sacrifices are are worth it.

It's absolutely worth fighting for the life you want, even if you're not entirely sure what that looks like yet.

In this episode, Aaron and I get real about the struggles we've both experienced during our entrepreneurial journeys, the sacrifices we've had to make as a family and how they've helped us become a closer unit, and how our kids are becoming change-makers and entrepreneurs themselves.

It it may sound a little odd, but if you don't currently treat your family, specifically it's finances, like a business, you should.

My guest in this special episode, Natali Morris, is a broadcaster, writer, speaker, co-founder and CFO of Morris Invest, and a former news anchor who has worked for NBC, CBS, and The Today Show.

After being let go from her lucrative job on network television shortly after having her first child, she decided to start treating her family like her business by taking control of their finances.

Now, her mission is to empower women to take control of their money, their business, and start building long-term wealth.

According to Natali, you cannot save your way to wealth. You have to buy it.

The traditional views of preparing for retirement by pouring money into your 401k are outdated.

If you truly want to build wealth, or even just make sure your family is taken care of as you start a new business endeavor, you have be creative with your money.

In this episode, Natali and I discuss exactly how you can grow true creative wealth and keep your family afloat while you’re launching your own business.

Did you accomplish all the professional goals you set for yourself this year? Are you proud of the work you've done and the results it yielded? If not, a large of the reason is probably that you didn't have a clear plan in place before 2017 even began.

Luckily for you, I'm here to help make sure that doesn't happen for 2018.

In this episode, I'm discussing the three key things you need to know right now in order to plan and conquer 2018 so you can feel proud of all you've accomplished when you reflect back one year from now.

My guest this week is someone that I absolutely adore! I've known Andrea Wenburg for a little while and I'm even working with her in a professional capacity so I can have a better understanding of my voice of influence and how I can use that to stand out in a crowded niche.

In today's online marketplace, there are amazing new businesses, coaches, and consultants popping up all the time. Almost every niche these days is saturated and, unless you have a way to make yourself stand out among the crowd, your business might not be around for long.

Having a clear understanding of who are, what you have to say, and how you're going to say it will stop you from being generic and forgettable.

If you're failing to stand out in your niche, have a generic message, or are just not quite at the level of income you expected to be at by this point in your entrepreneurial journey ... make sure you really listen to what Andrea has to say in this powerful interview.

In this episode, you learn how having a clear understanding of your voice of influence will help improve your bottom line, how to turn your burdens into your passion and then into a business, and you'll hear about the incredible new opportunity for how you can learn from Andrea herself.

You're going to fail at some point.
Do you want to know why that's actually a good thing?

We would all love to believe that our business will be a success from day one. But the reality is... that's just not the case.

You will have failures in your business, multiple times.

The good news?

Repetitive losses in your business don't make you a loser. They make you an expert.

If your business or launch isn't going exactly the way you'd hoped, or if you're one of the delusional people who believe their business will be immediately successful, you can't miss this episode.

Losing helps you build better teams, execute your strategies more effectively, have better communication, increase your drive to succeed, and appreciate the wins.

In this episode, I'm talking about the four values which losing provides, and how losing makes you better, stronger, and more strategic.

It's no secret I kill technology. I don't have a technological bone in my body and this was made very apparent when it was time to create my first online course and membership website. I struggled for months and wasted thousands of dollars ... until I discovered Kajabi.

Kajabi is a platform that helps entrepreneurs create, market, sell, and distribute their knowledge online. Having been one of Kajabi's first customers several years ago, I am extremely excited to bring you this interview with it's Co-Founder, Travis Rosser.

 

In this episode, you'll get to hear Travis' full entrepreneurial journey, my story of struggling to make other platforms work in the beginning and how Kajabi saved me, why Travis protects the company culture he's worked intentionally to create, and how Kajabi can help you stop being afraid of technology and start making money selling your knowledge.
