F*ck Fearless & Choose Bravery with Heather Vickery

 

If you haven’t heard my cringe-worthy story of how I spent two years thinking about starting this podcast before I finally pulled the trigger, you can go listen to my One Year Podversary episode to hear all the embarrassing details.  During that two-year period of overthinking and creative procrastination, I even flew from LA to Orlando to attend the Podcast Movement Conference, thinking that would inspire me to get off the fence.  

It did not, but it did help...

Value vs Worth

 

In our ongoing series on the mindset changes we need to make in business in order to make the income, impact, and profit we really want to make,  in this solo episode, I address one of the more common problems I see with female solopreneurs: confusion about worth and value in their business. 

Here are just a few of the highlights: 

  • Defining what we mean by value and worth 
  • Salary politics and relationship trauma as triggers
  • Bad advice from other business...

Saying No Like You Mean It

 

Two weeks ago we talked about boundaries and if you haven’t listened to that episode yet, I suggest you do.  Boundaries and knowing when to say “no” go together like PB & J. In this companion episode, I will be talking about not the mechanics of saying no (although I do give you a simple strategy for what to do when you’re put on the spot, near the end…) but more of the strategy behind the no.  

If you are a solopreneur, creative...

Setting Boundaries Like a Boss

 

One of the topics I am asked to speak about the most, whether it is as a speaker, podcast guest, or with my own coaching clients is boundaries.  The subject of boundaries comes up so often because it might seem simple, but is actually quite complicated.   

There is no cookie-cutter, one size fits all situations solution.  Boundaries are culturally determined, affected by our personalities, temperaments,  stage of life, mental health, personal...

Balancing Passion & Profit with Heather Zeitzwolfe

 

Many of us start out with one goal in mind - creating a business around something we are passionate about.  In fact “Follow your passion and build a business you love” is probably the most popular headline for a huge number of online business coaches nowadays.  It’s a very seductive promise and a glamorous fantasy, but it is simply not enough to keep your business boat afloat. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, passion is important, and maybe even...

People Pleasing is Killing Your Profits

 

I think it's really important as women and business owners that we understand how our culture has conditioned us to have certain beliefs, expectations, habits, and behaviors that interfere with our ability to achieve our goals and be successful. Most of us don't even realize all the things that we are doing that are killing our profits. So I'm willing to offend, to annoy, and even risk being a trigger because I think for those of you that are ready to hear the unvarnished truth and...

The Multipassionate Creative Career with Sarah Mac

 

Growing up singing and dancing in the UK, Sarah Mac fell in love with the theater and decided that a career in the performing arts was the one for her.  A believer in manifesting opportunities in alignment with her desires, Sarah found herself taking advantage of one exciting experience after another. In a matter of years, her “say yes to everything” motto lead her to the edge of burnout and she realized she needed to find another way. 

Sarah reinvented...

Changing Your Mind, One Thought at a Time

 

I often say that human beings only have two problems: We are always thinking and we always believe ourselves. While this may sound sarcastic (and it probably is) the underlying truth is that for many of us, our thoughts are the source of our suffering, not our circumstances.  That’s not to say our circumstances might not need some changing, but plenty of us have everything we need to be healthy, happy, successful, and fulfilled and we aren’t, because of our...
