Writing Your Own Rules in Online Business with Deanna Seymour

Just imagine a high school art teacher, wife, and mom trying to start an online business.  She loves her students and teaching itself but the profession itself is sucking the joy right out of her.  In spite of her boundless enthusiasm and endless creativity, plus years of side hustle experience, like the rest of us, this wantrepreneur turns to the alleged “experts” in the field, the high priestesses of online marketing.  

These celebrity coaches and online...

Lessons in Entrepreneurship from "Inventing Anna"

The tagline for “Inventing Anna” is: “Inspired by the true story of a total fake.”  Of course, I was instantly hooked, along with millions of other Netflix subscribers.  Within a week, several of my clients, friends, and family members were messaging me, excitedly asking “Are you watching Inventing Anna?”  and I am pretty sure I know why.  

First of all, I was a licensed therapist for many years before becoming a coach, I am...

The Boundaries Series: Creating Consistent Client Outcomes

Today’s solo episode tackles the problem of saying “yes” to clients you probably should say “no” to and why, and how to both create predictable outcomes and avoid both negative ones and surprises.   Creating a specific way of working with people and sticking to it, instead of trying to help everyone you think you should, or believe you can spare you countless heartaches. 

The truth is that you really can’t help everybody.  None of us...

PR & Pitching for Experts with Michelle Glogovac

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 me take...

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:

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.

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.

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 stinking...
